Famous athletes die of a Cardiomyopathy

Young athletes die from Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathy, a fancy word for a big heart, is a disease of abnormal heart muscle. Cardiomyopathies have been linked to severely uncontrollabl ed hypertensives and athletes. Your heart is a muscle and when it's very large it takes more oxygen to feed it, so it is prone to ischemia, or lack of oxygen. This can cause your heart to stop and was the cause of death for young professional athletes like: Gaines Adams, Joe Kennedy, Hank Gathers, Reggie Lewis, Jason Collier, Thomas Herrion, & Sergei Zholt.

Two common symptoms associated with cardiomyopathy is nausea and headaches. These athletes must keep their heart rate down. Trainers should ask their players to grunt, blow in a straw, or perform a valsalva maneuver. The NoMoNauseaBand can easily relieve the nausea and headache symptoms in a natural and zero side-effect way. The acupressure part of the band is placed on your P6 point, targeting all 4 different anti-nausea receptors in the brain, stopping nausea before it even starts. The peppermint aromatherapy helps by opening vessels in the brain, relieving headaches.
