One particular woman was worried that she was dying of a heart attack. Dr. Christopher checked her eyes and told her that there wasn't anything wrong with her heart; in fact, it was in excellent condition. He wished his own heart were as good as hers! He assured her that she was not having a heart attack.
She was somewhat belligerent: "Well, don't tell me, I should know, it's me that's having them. I can be washing dishes and all of a sudden, my heart will stop beating and I fall on the floor and pass out. Or I'll be walking down the street, shopping, and pass out. They rush me to the hospital, and I always come to before anything is done, like operations. "Dr. Christopher told her she hadn't any heart problems at all, but that she did have a condition on her descending colon, where she had a bowel pocket, a gas pocket, and whenever she got gas in that, it pushed up against her heart valves and cut the heart off. That is why the heart would stop, because of the gas pressure. She said that she was having a heart pain right then and that the heart was constantly troubling her. She was afraid she would pass out.
He told her to hang on, and he called on the intercom to the laboratory, where they always had hot water ready. He had them mix up a teaspoon of wild yam and a cup of hot water. Within a very short time he strained out a cup of wild yam tea for the woman. She was just about ready to pass out. She took a couple of drinks of the tea and started to burp. Finally the gas was completely relieved.
After taking Dr. Christopher's advice and not gulping her food, but chewing more thoroughly, using wild yam as she needed, she got over this problem and never had another attack.
