Miley Cyrus had an extreme allergic reaction to antibiotics she was taking, and had to rush to the hospital to get treated. But, it was revealed that she has tachycardia, a faster than normal heartbeat that could lead to a stroke.
Tachycardia is a heart rate that exceeds the normal range. In general, a resting heart rate over 100 beats per minute is accepted as tachycardia. Tachycardia can be caused by various factors that often are benign. However, tachycardia can be dangerous, depending on the speed and type of rhythm. When the heart beats excessively or rapidly, the heart pumps less efficiently and provides less blood flow to the rest of the body, including the heart itself. The increased heart rate also leads to increased work and oxygen demand by the heart, which can lead to rate related ischemia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tachycardiahttp://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/Conditions/Arrhythmia/AboutArrhythmia/Tachycardia-Fast-Heart-Rate_UCM_302018_Article.jsp‘She could get heart muscle problems and even heart failure at worst,’ Dr Mark Urman told the weekly. ‘She could even end up with a stroke.’
Who is likely to have Atrial or SVT?
- SVT is the most common type of arrhythmia in children
- More common in women, but may occur in either sex
- Anxious young people
- People who are physically fatigued
- People who drink large amounts of coffee
- People who drink alcohol heavily
- People who smoke heavily
So Miley is ticking a couple of these boxes. She is known for partying hard, doing a lot of physical work, drinking alcohol and smoking. I don’t know if she consumes coffee. Her lifestyle may in fact contribute to her condition, and this is something she has to be careful off.
To make mattes worse, the Wrecking Ball singer has a love of drugs, something she has freely admitted to several times.The Tennessee native has confessed she loves marijuana and Molly, which is also known as MDNA and Ecstasy.
The ex-fiancé of Liam Hemsworth even wrote a song about pot smoking and has worn costumes to her concert with marijuana leaves on them.‘She knows she’s not supposed to smoke pot or do drugs, but she does it anyway,’ a source told the magazine.
The recommendations they give regards tachycardia are:
- Cutting down on coffee.
- Cutting down on alcohol.
- Quitting tobacco use.
- Getting more rest.
- Slow down physical exertion
As I read further, I realize she already knew about this condition:
During her 2009 Miles To Go memoir the blonde admitted she needed to be careful with her health.‘My heart rate increases a lot just from going up a flight of stairs,’ she wrote in the book. ‘There is never a time onstage when I’m not thinking about my heart.’ She also admitted she was born with a hole in her heart.
Now to get to the point. What I see her is a choice of the mind over the body, and how a self-image based on ego may cause us to destroy our body. Miley has taken on a certain personality, a certain image. This image happens to go together with a wilder lifestyle, drugs and alcohol. All these things are known to be bad for her heart. So then the choice is: will she be able to choose her body over her mind, and not define herself according to a certain image or idea? Because the extend in which she follows her mind can lead her into more physical harm. The attachment to this image she has about herself may lead to her health deteriorating or even ending in death. So this also shows a point of enslavement, of being enslaved to a certain idea about yourself, and something you want others to think about you and who you are.
I am only using Miley as an example here, because this can be applied to many of us.
If you cannot “be yourself” without a man made drug, then what does this say about who you are? It says you are fabricated, that ‘who you are’ is dependent on certain substances, or based on an image and idea. And if this is lost, then suddenly “you” are lost as well. Where in fact did you go? Nowhere, you are still here in the physical (if you are not dead ofcourse). You still have your body, your brain, your organs… you can think, sense, smell, move and everything else. So the only thing that can convince you that you are “less” than you previously were, are thoughts that you allow within your mind. Thoughts that you allow to tell you that you are “less” or “not you”.
So if a behavior is causing your body harm, and you know it, and you also know it can cause you further health problems and even end up in death. Then which thoughts exactly would lead you to continue that behavior. Which thoughts are connected to emotions that are so strong, that they can convince you to harm your physical body? The body that gives you life and makes you walk on this planet, and enjoy it (if you are not in a deprived position and suffering like many are on this planet unfortunately). I think we take our bodies too much for granted, and give our programmed mind way too much credit and act as a slave towards it.
If it was up to me, I would know which choice to make, and it would be my body, not my mind. Because the body always has the final say over life and death.
