FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 198S BLYTHEV1LLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THREB Your Heart's in Your Hands-5 Keeping Your Heart We// Is a Full-Time Jab (Last of A Series) By DR. WILLIAM A. HRAMS Distributed by NKA Service NEW YORK — (NEA) ~ To th'e millions of persons with heart disease, there is otten a definite question as to which is harder to do: survive the attack itself, or make the adjustments later that will help to prevent a recurrence. As you some day may find out yourself, learning to live with a heart condition is a job that permits ho errors. Your greatest foe will be fear. Cardiologists find, again and again, that the average patient who remains an invalid after a heart attack has broken off his routine of life not because he is crippled by (he damage done to.liis heart, but because of his own anxiety. The facts, however, are reassuring. Death is exceptional, during or Just after a heart attack. Of every 10 persons who suffer an attack of coronary thrombosis, eight or nine live on. In anticipating the future, our experience shows there are two possibilities. Hardening of the arteries may continue and increase, so that the condition becomes more hazardous. But it also may come to a stop. We do not knoU' when or why or how, but we do know that this seems common. For individual cases, prediction is out of the question. The best We can do is to make some general statements — remembering all the while that your case may be an exception. The outlook for active life is best, as a rule, for those whose hearts were not very badly damaged. And yet every cardiologist has seen what he thought were extremely grave cases return to normal life. You are better off if you're young fand that includes 40's to 50'SJ and have had but a single attack. The records tell Us also that women tolerate coronary thrombosis better than mm. They are not as subject to it in the first place, and they make more complete recoveries. We do not know why. One fact, however, is certain: your prospects of pulling through are less if you're overweight. You must win the battle with your appetite to win the war with coronary thrombosis. The word on what you can eat and drink will have to come from your doctor, who knows your entire condition. As far as your heart itself is concerned, the only food banned is salt. A glass of beer contains a very small amount of salt and not many calories, hence this amount is permissible for patients with coronary thrombosis. Alcohol, coffee and tea — always in moderation — may actually be of help, as they tend to increase circulation. The coffee plant,-in fact, is a close relative of plants from which heart drugs are derived. The general policy on tobacco is: habitual smokers may indulge moderately, provided it is denico- tinized tobacco. Others should not smoke. One of your hazards is constipation because of the extra straining needed to empty the bowels. Your doctor can help to relieve this, and always should be consulted. In general, if recovery appears complete, you may follow in moderation your former habits of social intercourse, sports and travel. If, however, your heart was left impaired, you must make concessions as She price of continued health. For example, your hours. If you feel -fatigued by your day's round, it is good sense to go to bed early. Let your sensations be your guide and always be sure to heed them As long as driving a car does not tire or excite you, it may safely be undertaken. But wait for at least three months and never lake any* long trips unless there is someone' to, relieve you at the wheel. And if yon must travel with luggage or sample cases, always let someone else lift them in and out of the car. Stick (o sporls that are not competitive, such as easy horseback riding or walking on the level. Games like tennis and squash are too fast and hard, (Golf however, is fine, provided you take it easy.) Most people are under the impression Uiat heart patients do better if they move to a warm climate. But there is no evidence that . climate has any effect on hardening of the arteries. The typical heart patient of today is not in invalid. Fifteen or 20 years ago, you . would have been ordered to retire from active We know now lhat this WHS a tragjc loss of years. Your doctor will tfuide you in working out a safe mode of life, if only you will cooperate. Unless your case is severe, you can probably go back to work though you may be advised to change your job — and you may have trouble find- ins employment. You may find you are given no : medicines. Physicians wish it were i otherwise, but we simply do not i know of any drugs to prescribe tor you. once your attack is over. ., Following a sensible program I j Will brine you, day by day, closer to recovery. Then, as you find yourself easing b&ck into life, put fear behind you. Your plight*is no worse — and probably better — than that of thousands of others who are now leading happy, productive lives. Think of yourself as they do — us master of your fate! (Last of a Series.) Youngsters Get Surprise Trip NEWHALL. Calif. itf»» — Two youngsters came as a surprise to Newhall—and vice versa.

It's too Soon to Tell About Soviet Shakeup By JAMES MARLOW elated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON i/ft—What lies behind the Kremlin shuffle can only be guessed at. There have been plenty of guesses. No one can argue with certainty his guess is right. It's too soon and there's not enough Solid evidence. This writer knows of no one in ihe government, and reporters have asked plenty of questions, who pretends to speak with post- tivene.s. 1 ) about events in Moscow this week. It ha.s been traditional practice to view Kremlin turnovers as resulting from power struggles and to predict an aftermath of bloody purges. There have been some previous examples to support such a view. Wishful Thinking? But it doesn't necessarily follow, and may be only wishful thinking to believe so, that this mast always be the case. That would assume Russian Communists are loo inflexible and stereotyped to meet new situations differently. them. If that is so. they -might in tim.e take full control. But a contrary view can be offered with as much legitimacy: that the Communist clique asked Zhukov to take the job either because of his ability or to give the impression at home or abroad that the army fully supports the party. Here are some other theories for the shakeup: Internal trouble; failure of the farm program; decision to step up armaments; Communist failures abroad, particularly in the Wes^s agreement to rearm Germany; realization Russia with soft talk made ho progress while the tough- talking Red Chinese made plenty Suit Charges Arms Monopoly DENVER (iPi— A Denver businessman filed suit in U.
