I am confronted on a daily basis by patients in various degrees of stress. Stress that comes from relationship challenges, maybe their health concerns. There seem to be so many potential causes for that word “stress”. None of which are generally considered to be beneficial to health.
Then there is the financial stress. All too common in our society these days. And this stress often contributes to hypertension, or high blood pressure.
According to WebMD, hypertension is the number 1 cause of heart attach death. Not a statistic to mess around with, in my humble opinion. Yet the primary causes of high blood pressure, i.e. obesity, sedentary habits, eating food with questionable nutritional content, etc. are increasingly ignored by the majority of people, even the majority of patients I see! The levels of all these negative health factors are rising, even when we know we eat too much, of the wrong things, and don’t exercise nearly enough!
OK, we need some good news. The first thing is that all of this is preventable. With a little education, some common sense, and increased awareness, all of this can go away! All it takes is some better choices.
When we go to the grocery store we are confronted with thousands of choices. According to FMI, a food industry statistician, in 2010 there were 38,718 different item choices in the average supermarket. And most of these do not contribute to any level of what we would call “good health”. Foods are packaged to attract our attention, not on the basis of what is good nutritional content, but on the basis of what sells.
High blood pressure is preventable. If we can make choices that feed our body good food and nutrition, we can lower our blood pressure and prevent heart attack and heart disease naturally, without potentially harmful drugs.
The choice is mine. And yours.
Poor health causes poor financial health. Leading the pack in causes of bankruptcy is health problems, by a whopping 42%. The next leading cause is job loss, which is about 22%. Keeping in mind that high blood pressure and heart disease are at the top of the “health problem” list, it bears repeating that making decisions that keep your blood pressure normal and your heart healthy will keep your bank account healthy as well.
Eat well and exercise. Take some time to study what foods contribute to wellness, of your heart and your whole body. Take supplements such as Acctrix to provide your body with the heart saving nutrients it needs.
One of the most heartwarming things I observe when interacting with patients is when I see the results of their good choices. And even more when I see their children following their parents lead.
Our financial future, even more so, the future of our country depends on the choices we make today. Choose health! Create a healthy heart through keeping your blood pressure well within acceptable limits.
