Hypertension / Re: What is high blood pressure?
« Last post by KristenSwan on February 23, 2019, 05:03:44 am »
Hypertension is another name for high blood pressure. It can lead to severe complications and increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and death.
Blood pressure is the force exerted by the blood against the walls of the blood vessels. The pressure depends on the work being done by the heart and the resistance of the blood vessels.

Hypertension and heart disease are global health concerns. The World Health Organization (WHO) suggests that the growth of the processed food industry has impacted the amount of salt in diets worldwide, and that this plays a role in hypertension.

While blood pressure is best regulated through the diet before it reaches the stage of hypertension, there is a range of treatment options.

Lifestyle adjustments are the standard first-line treatment for hypertension.

Regular physical exercise
Doctors recommend that patients with hypertension engage in 30 minutes of moderate-intensity, dynamic, aerobic exercise. This can include walking, jogging, cycling, or swimming on 5 to 7 days of the week.

Stress reduction
Avoiding stress, or developing strategies for managing unavoidable stress, can help with blood pressure control.
Using alcohol, drugs, smoking, and unhealthy eating to cope with stress will add to hypertensive problems. These should be avoided.
Smoking can raise blood pressure. Giving up smoking reduces the risk of hypertension, heart conditions, and other health issues.
Well, if you?re fed up of the constant jibes that people fire on you, it?s time for a change, a pleasant change. What I am about to share with you delivers results as much as a medical weight loss consultation does.

It?s bizarre but it works!

Let?s go!

Bizarre weight loss tips that deliver results

Sniff an apple, banana or peppermint! It might sound silly but it works. According to Alan R. Hirsch, MD, Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation, a study conducted on 3000 people showed that sniffing actually made people less hungry which in turn contributed to weight loss. The hunch behind this is that sniffing tricks the human mind to think that you?re actually eating it!

So, It?s time to get your sniffing game strong!

Place a mirror in front of your seat at the dining table

A study shows that placing a mirror in front of your dining actually prompts you to eat less. It works by making you conscious that overeating will mess up your resolution of losing weight.

Logical enough!

Make way for the blue

You might not believe it but blue is actually an appetizer killer. Studies show that people are less likely to eat when they?re in a blue room or in presence of blue light. According to science, blue light makes food less appealing and discourages people to eat. So, if you?re planning to lose weight, make sure you?re not surrounded by yellow, red or orange. They will make you eat more. Instead, choose blue!

Pick a wrapped Candy

According to a Swiss Study, people are less likely to eat candy if they have to unwrap it first. Taking off the wrapper takes extra effort and it makes people eat less.

Well, this one was unexpected!

Tie a ribbon

This, in the words of fitness guru Valerie Orsoni, is called ?La Petit Secret?. Some French women follow a bizarre trend of wearing a ribbon around their waist when they?re out for dinner. This keeps them conscious of their tummy as the ribbon feels tighter if they overeat. So, it keeps them in check!

Time to fasten your seat belts?I mean ribbons!

Eat your breakfast like a king!

Big breakfast eaters are known to shed more pounds. Eating a calorie-rich and healthy breakfast is known to affect your body positively and contribute to weight loss. This works by keeping your tummy full until lunch which naturally makes you eat less. Ideally, you should be aiming for a downward graph of food intake?morning to evening?in ascending order!

While a medical weight loss consultation is always beneficial, having these extra tips is going to keep you on a strong guard.
