Blood pressure is one of the highest risk factors for developing heart diseases. Strokes, heart attacks, cardiac arrests, open heart surgeries are on the rise. More Americans are dying from heart diseases than all other diseases combined together, even accounting for the high death rate of the Covid-19 virus.
“I don’t want us to ever forget the tragedy of over 200,000 people who have died due to COVID-19,” U.S. Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams, MD, MPH says during the release of a call to action by HHS.. “We must keep our eyes on that ball … but I also don’t want us to turn a blind eye to the more than 500,000 people who will die this year due to uncontrolled high blood pressure. While we’re still looking for vaccines and therapeutics to treat COVID, I want you to know we have the tools already to end our national epidemic of uncontrolled hypertension.”
This is a serious illness with only 1 in 4 adults having control of their blood pressure and having a blood pressure less than 120/80.
What are the tools we must use to control blood pressures? Lower salt diets and increasing physical activity are the easiest and most effective methods to reducing blood pressures, sometimes to normal levels without medications.
So, if you do not use salt at your table, you could still be consuming an extremely high level of salt. Do you eat foods to consume less than 2300 mg of sodium every day? Cardinal Elements Weight Loss coach helps you identify hidden salt in your foods.
So, do you walk everyday and still have high blood pressure? Cardinal Elements helps you increase your physical activity without spending hours at the gym.
