You go to your doctor, he puts the cuff on your upper arm, squeezes the bulb and watches the gauge. He announces your blood pressure as something over the norm.
And now at a younger age. Hypertension is the most common form of cardiovascular disease in the United States. We’re talking about 1 out of 3 adults!
High blood pressure can lead you to serious health issues; Heart attack, stroke, kidney disease
Why is that?
Your heart has to work harder and your body does not get what it needs. We know the heart circulates blood with oxygen and nutrients through our body to every cell. A steady supply keeps the body working right
A person needs robust living cells to stay healthy and energetic.
The circulating blood feeds your cells, gets rid of the trash and nourishes your lungs along with breathing. We make poor choices every day that lead us to unhealthy conditions, especially when we reach the age where our bodies do not handle the abuse as well as it use to. Such as:
- Excessive weight from eating and drinking too much.
- Sitting too much, lack of exercise
- Processed and fried foods, white flour, white refined sugar, the junk that we eat (you would be surprised how much better you feel and food tastes with better quality food)
- Too much sodium
- Stress and emotional health
