What you need to know about NIGHTMARE or BANGUNGOT & some realities Got this information from a US-based pharmacist who is a cousin of a colleague It seems only MALES are afflicted with this.
IMPORTANT: Never go thirsty when going to bed and be sure you have plenty of water during your 8-hour rest. Bangungot has killed a male nurse of UERMMH. It is sudden death in adults which cause them to die while sleeping.
Many theories have been put forward as its cause. However, here is an article which sheds some light to the cause of this malady.
Please read on: Article from THE PHILIPPINE STAR: The reported cause of actor Rico Yan's death is nightmare or bangungot.
Medical investigators in China , Japan and several Asian countries who performed autopsies on persons who died from "acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis" found out that the majority of them had eaten NOODLES as their supper. This was a startling finding. However, it wasn't the noodles that caused nightmares but DEHYDRATION. Imbibing even with a few drinks of alcohol or just eating noodles immediately before bedtime compound this on an empty stomach will trigger an electrolyte imbalance and other factors that causes a person to dehydrate or lose water.
It is therefore advisable for a person to take several glasses of water before bedtime if he had a few or several alcoholic drinks.
Avoid eating noodles before bedtime, but if you can not avoid it, allow at least two hours for the body to digest the noodles before hitting the sack and drink plenty of water.
The most important thing is, never go thirsty when going to bed and be sure you have plenty of water during your 8-hour rest.

Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active. This makes sense ... The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals ..not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain...
For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this "sludge" reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food.. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer.
It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal. A serious note about heart attacks: · Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting, ·
