Healthy Eating Myths Shattered
by: Dr. Jamie Fettig
Salt does Not Cause High Blood Pressure. Some things you
need to know first to fully understand blood pressure,
as well as helping you to understand about many other
things in your body: The difference between average and
Average is a mathematical statistic. Don't let that big
M word scare you. All average means is that you add up
all the totals you have and divide by the number of totals
you added. This gives you an average of the group of numbers.
Normal is what is right for an individual, or what is
common or appropriate for each particular person.
What the medical profession does is make the average normal.
They measure a bunch of people's blood pressure, divide
the added totals by the number of people they measured,
and come up with an average blood pressure. And then they
say this is the normal blood pressure for everyone.
I will let you in on a little secret. If you had the blood
pressure I have at this exact moment, you would probably
pass out. If you had the same blood pressure standing
as you did sitting, you would probably pass out. Your
blood pressure changes all the time, all day long. Your
normal blood pressure needs to be different than everyone
else's. You need the right blood pressure for you at the
right time. If you had the average blood pressure all
the time, you probably would be dead by now.
So what do you do with this? Take all the numbers the
doctors give you with "a grain of salt." Just
because their charts show that you Ashould be@ in this
range does not mean you actually should. You are different
than everyone else. Your normal might be outside of the
range of average that they go by and still be perfectly
healthy for you.
So your A high blood pressure@ might very well be normal
for you. And if it is actually too high for your normal,
salt really has nothing to do with it.
Again the medical profession came up with a theory and
never really tested it before they released it as Atruth@
on the world. Someone said that salt attracts water, and
blood has water in it. So if you get rid of some of the
salt in the blood, then there will be less water in the
blood as well. And if there is less volume of blood, the
pressure will have to be less. That was their theory and
they began telling people to eat less salt thinking it
would lower people's blood pressure. No real tests, no
real studies, and yet believed to be true by many.
Here is the real proof it is garbage. Try and find one
person whose blood pressure decreased because they quit
eating salt. You will be very hard pressed to find one
person. Because eating less salt does not lower your blood
pressure. Just like a Diuretic, medications that cause
you to release more water than your body wants to from
your blood through your kidneys, is often prescribed to
attempt to help lower blood pressure. And again, I dare
you to try and find people who this has helped.
You see, the body is so much smarter than we are. Many
more internal factors go into what your blood pressure
is than how much water you have in your blood. Your Blood
pressure is a function of your blood vessels, the stuff
in your blood, the muscles in and around your blood vessels,
your heart, and so much more. If you force water out of
the body, your body will compensate in other ways to keep
your pressure at your unique normal. Your body knows best
where your blood pressure should be. And until you change
one or some of the internal factors (and medications do
not count) your body will do everything in its power to
keep things where they are at.
Want something that is free and easy that decreases the
blood pressure significantly for many people who actually
do it? Drink Water. It often is as simple as that and
here is a perfect example of why. Imagine some really
thick ketchup and trying to suck it through a straw. Versus
if you put a bunch of water in the ketchup and mix it
up and suck the ketchup through the straw. Does it take
more or less pressure to suck the watered down ketchup
through a straw? It takes less pressure. Similar with
your blood. If your blood is thick and sludgy because
you are dehydrated, your body will increase your pressure
to force the blood through the little itty-bitty vessels
Actually, your blood pressure is more than this. And drinking
water does so much more than make your blood thinner so
it flows through the vessels easier. Whatever the reasons,
drinking water often lowers people's blood pressure.

many people find to do when they start a weight-loss program?",
I would have to say right near the top of the list is
this - they don't drink enough water!

How to Lose Weight
by: Mart Gil
For overweight and obese persons, losing weight is very
hard. There are a lot of weight loss programs being offered
in gyms nowadays but still, its so tiresome to go
on and on to the gym just for this reason. I myself have
been very interested to start my workout but when I get
the chance to do it, I always feel very lazy. There are
other ways to burn those unwanted fats away and I will
be discussing some of them here.
