Eating Fish Can Help Keep Your Heart Regular

A study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology indicates that eating fish that are naturally rich in omega-3 fatty acids appears to have a health promoting effect on the electrical system of the heart. This information is particularly important for people with cardiac arrhythmias to be aware of.

Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian of Harvard Medical School analyzed data that was recorded for 5096 adults who were 65 years of age or older from 1989 to 1990. Specifically, electrocardiograms and dietary intake of omega-3 fatty acids from fish were analyzed. Read more

What Can Cause A Potassium Deficiency?

Dear Dr. Kim,

I am an avid reader of your newsletter and like the greens also very much. Thank you for your wonderful work.

A question for you. I have a good friend and client (I do some home health care for her) who was recently placed in the hospital for severe leg cramping. Since she has congestive heart failure, it was thought that perhaps her heart had thrown off a clot which blocked the circulation.....however, no signs were found of a clot. After several days in the hospital and many, many tests, she was sent home without much additional knowledge. Then, upon entering the house, we got a phone call from the lab saying that her potassium was dangerously low. She has consistently been on the equivalent of 4,500 mg. of potassium per day to counteract the potassium loss from the diuretics she is on for her heart. That has now been changed to 6,000 mg.
