It is easy to find information on the Internet about the symptoms of heart attack. You can find lists of heart attack signs for men and women both. You may have witnessed or experienced attacks before, and know what to do in case of heart attack.

But do you know how to cure a heart attack?

It may seem strange to ask how to cure a heart attack. A heart attack is an event. Like any event, it happens and it ends. Why ask how to cure a heart attack? It will end with the death of a part of the heart muscle - or it will end with the death of the entire muscle. Every heart attack ends one way or the other, doesn't it?

How to Cure a Heart Attack with Folk Medicine

Some think they know how to cure a heart attack with folk medicine. They mix this or that together, or take capsules of some supplement. These samples of folk medicine that is thought to cure a heart attack are offered merely for educational purposes.

1. Mix 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1 crushed clove garlic, and 1-2 Tablespoons of honey in 1-1.5 cups of boiling water and drink. Repeat once daily after a heart attack.

2. The best cure after a heart attack is to get oxygen to body cells so they can repair the damage. Mix 1 teaspoon dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) with 1 full glass of water and drink. Repeat every couple of hours.

3. Take magnesium daily to rebuild the heart. When magnesium is depleted, it makes muscles twitch - and can do the same to the heart.

4. Take aged garlic extract capsules daily.

5. Hawthorn, used regularly, strengthens the heart muscle. Studies show that hawthorn speeds recovery after heart attack. It strengthens the heart and forestalls any onset of coronary disease. No other herb provides the nourishing regeneration of hawthorn after heart attack.

Those ideas may or may not work. Studies in Great Britain are giving credence to the use of aged garlic extract. Other studies show that the claims may be close for hawthorn. For the most part, however, the medical community scoffs at any use of folk medicine. They have more modern ideas about how to cure a heart attack.

How to Cure a Heart Attack with Modern Medicine

Ask how to cure a heart attack with modern medicine, and physicians will detail several treatments. Some involve medications, while others require invasive procedures.
Medications are used immediately in a heart attack. The first goal is to break up or prevent blood clots. Additional goals are to stabilize plaque, and keep blood plateletsfrom congregating and sticking to plaque. Of course, it is hoped that the medications will prevent additional trouble. In order to reduce damage to the heart, physicians must administer these medications within 30 minutes from the time the heart attack symptoms began. Medications given may include any combination of aspirin, heparin, so-called clot busters, and other anti-platelet drugs.
Once these medications are given, modern medicine serves up additional drugs to lessen your heart's work and reduce your pain.
Procedures may begin before the heart attack has ended. The cardiologist may order catheterization to determine the heart attack's cause and assess damage. He may use balloon angioplasty to open a blocked artery, and place a stent to keep it open.

In severe cases of blockage, the cardiologist may perform emergency coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery.

In recent years, studies have shown that much of this is unnecessary and should not be done. A "wait-and-see" approach has been proven more satisfactory after initial medication.

How to REALLY Cure a Heart Attack with VERY Modern Medicine

In 2004, an Israeli team created what they termed a biological "scaffold" to implant in pigs. They found that the scaffold allowed healthy, injectable heart muscle cells to replace cells that died as a result of a heart attack. The process is known as tissue engineering.

As of 2007, this technique is still in the testing stage, but if successful in humans, it could revolutionize treatment of heart attacks. It could give physicians the ability to REALLY cure heart attack victims. It would help heart attack victims live longer, and improve their quality of life.
