High Blood Pressure

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.


You have high blood pressure.

I have to ask the question, why does it seem like more and more people have high blood pressure? There is a lot of information available about cardiovascular health. It does not look like people are taking it to heart.

I hear from a lot of people that are mid-age and older taking medication for high blood pressure.

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:

  • Smoking
  • 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
Cardiologists say that focusing on lifestyle changes is a very sensible strategy for cardiovascular health. Medication is usually needed if readings continue to exceed 140/90 (or 130/80 for diabetics or people that have kidney disease) and should be a temporary choice until you can get back on track with your health.

People have been able to get their blood pressure normal again after making healthier choices.

There are so many healthy choices to choose from. You have the power and control.
Take care of yourself, you deserve the quality and joy in life, not to be burden with something that will destroy you.

I have had the pleasure to meet Dr. Myron Wentz of USANA several times. He is passionate about peoples health. His career has been working with and understanding the human cell.

He and his company has created a nutritional health supplement for the cells. That is a healthy choice. To feed and nourish the most important part to life and it is so easy. Let's do it!
