Natural Ways To Lower Blood Pressure
The Easy Ways To Lower Blood Pressure More
Over 25 percent of all adults and over 5 percent of people below age eighteen develop high blood pressure. When high blood pressure begins in adolescence, about 25 percent of its victims will have measurable heart damage by age eighteen. About 85 percent of all high blood pressure can be completely controlled by diet, food, and lifestyle.
Very few things we do have favorable results 85 percent of the time. For instance, investment and job decisions we make seldom meet our expectations. But if you follow the steps in this book care¬fully and consistently, you will have about an 85 percent probabil¬ity of controlling your high blood pressure without resorting to medication.
You will also reap dividends in many other areas of health beyond just controlling blood pressure. Your risk of heart attack and stroke will diminish directly because high blood pressure increases risk of both. Similarly, the likelihood that you will develop serious heart ir¬regularities, such as angina, will lessen. Other less obvious benefits include the reduced likelihood of kidney problems, adult-onset (Type 2) diabetes, and even some visual problems that result from high blood pressure. Because blood pressure control always involve
weight control, you will be less likely to have joint problems as you age because excess weight worsens them.
In spite of those clear physiological benefits, the greatest benefit is psychological. You will have demonstrated to yourself and your loved ones your perseverance and willpower—your ability to face a health problem head on and defeat it. The increased self-esteem de¬rived from that accomplishment is incalculable.
