HYPERTENSION
A True Killer


September 14th, 2004

By Sal Roach




A recent study revealed that 1 in 3, up from 1 in 4 Americans, now suffer from Hypertension or High Blood Pressure. The thing about High Blood pressure that may be most frightening is that, once you have it, there is very little chance you will get rid of it.


As your heart goes through its rhythms, it pumps blood through your vessels and stimulates all organs in your body. When your blood pressure starts to rise, the blood is pushing too hard against the walls of the blood vessels. This causes your heart over exert itself, which can cause permanent damage. High blood pressure makes your heart work too hard.


So, as is the case with most conditions induced by outside influences, prevention may indeed be the best medicine. Physically, there are many things that can be easily done to prevent high blood pressure.


Don’t just get into a health craze. Following a healthy eating pattern can lessen the risk of hypertension. Nuts, Beans Yogurt and other forms of NATURAL PROTIEN help to build the heart muscle to a more tolerable level and keep your vessels clean.



HYPETENSION




Stop using excess salt in your diet. Do it. DO IT!


Exercise at least 30 minutes a day. This will keep your arteries clean and your blood flowing, eventually leading to a healthy heart. Having a healthy heart allows you to keep your cool in the heat of battle. When aroused, the natural endorphins or opiate receptors in your body are stimulated. IF your heart is weak, it won’t take the pressure, and your mood will turn negative and sickly.


If you drink or smoke heavily, you are putting yourself at the highest risk level imaginable because of the weakening of your immune system that these products can cause.


These are of course the physical things that you need to prevent., but what about the mental?


First, if you are constantly in a stressful situation, you may need to take a step back from it. The higher your blood pressure is, the less blood is going to your brain and the less you are actually breathing. You need room and space to think, so give that to yourself.


Reducing stress is not a luxury, but a necessary health concern that needs to be taken into account when planning your daily routine.


If you brush your teeth every day so they won’t fall out, you should mind your heart as well, for it might explode if you don’t watch it.
