Easiest Way to Cure High Blood Pressure, Diabetes and High Cholesterol
Want to get your cholesterol within healthy levels? Read on.
An article has just appeared in the latest edition of the journal Psychology & Health that suggests the easiest way to eliminate most modern diseases.
And it literally takes no effort and is as natural as can be.
Because the relationship between vacation and health is fairly poorly studied, the scientists decided to find out whether time off can reduce our risk of metabolic syndrome (the precursor to diabetes) and reduce associated symptoms.
The only previous study they could find on the subject found that people who took regular vacations were less likely to die of cardiovascular causes or prematurely of any cause.
The Syracuse University academics used 63 workers who were eligible for paid vacations. They invited them into the laboratory where they conducted a range of physiological measures to assess their metabolic status.
Together with the physiological tests, they also asked them about their vacation behavior in the last 12 months.
These participants had taken five vacations during the past 12 months, using two weeks of their paid vacation days.
The more vacations they took, the fewer harmful metabolic symptoms they showed. Each additional vacation reduced their risk for the metabolic syndrome by 25 percent.
We should probably define what metabolic syndrome is. It’s said to be present if you have three of these four symptoms: large waist circumference, high blood pressure, high triglycerides (fats in the blood), and high fasting blood sugar levels.
It isn’t known exactly why vacations have such a positive effect, but the results make it clear that they really do.
Any change to compulsory vacation time will probably be a long time coming, so until it does, you had better take charge of your health!
Cholesterol Drugs Can Triple Your Risk of This Serious Disease
How to Get Your Cholesterol Within Healthy Levels Without Taking Such Harmful Cholesterol Drugs?
These drugs are the most commonly prescribed drugs for high cholesterol. They’re so common that researchers think more than a quarter of middle-aged Americans are taking them.
But a new study by scientists at Ohio State University in Columbus now suggests that these drugs may be largely responsible for the current diabetes epidemic.
The researchers checked the health records of 4,683 adults who had private health insurance. They were free of diabetes when the study began in 2011, but they had already received warnings about their risk of cardiovascular disease. Researchers followed them until 2014 to see which of them would develop diabetes.
Their average age was 46 years and 16 percent of them had been prescribed statins during the study period.
It turned out that statin-takers were 2.2 times more likely to develop diabetes than non-statin-takers.
Those who had taken statins for more than two years had a 3.3 times greater chance of developing diabetes compared with those who never took statins.
Even statin-takers who never developed diabetes were in trouble, with a 6.5 percent higher chance of high blood sugar than those who had never taken statins. This suggests that if this study had continued for longer, they may eventually have been at serious risk of diabetes too.
Pause and think about this for a moment. This study already shows that two years of statin-taking can triple your risk of diabetes, but because it was stopped at three years, and since even nondiabetic statin-takers had high blood sugar, even this number is probably too low.
It’s clear that the longer the participants took statins for, the greater their risk of developing diabetes, so the researchers knew that statins were causing it.
They ruled out interference from other factors like ethnicity, sex, age, and body mass index, so it was clear that the new diabetes cases were caused by the statins, and not by any of these other factors.
They couldn’t rule out alcohol use and smoking, so that’s worth bearing in mind, but the link does appear to be strong despite this.
This study again shows why it is far better to adopt natural methods to combat cholesterol. There is, after all, no point in fighting heart disease if that means it causes diabetes. You’re just swapping one deadly illness for another.
Get Your Cholesterol Within Healthy Levels and Cut Your Heart Attack Risk By 50%
If you want to cut your heart attack risk by doing something that doesn’t involve dieting, exercise, or giving up bad habits, then researchers at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine have got some good news for you.
They’ve found a free and easy way to get a healthier heart, because participants in their study reduced their risk of cardiovascular disease by an average of 30%, and some (the least healthy) even managed 50%. All thanks to doing this one thing every day.
This might sound a bit too convenient, but having a cheerful, upbeat approach to life every single day can make a huge difference to how healthy you are, and whether you get heart disease.
The scientists at Johns Hopkins are pretty sure about this because they looked at 1,500 healthy individuals. Everyone who said that they were happy, positive, cheerful and energetic had a 30% lower risk of experiencing a heart attack, so there has to be something in it.
The study didn’t look at why sad or angry people are more likely to develop high blood pressure and end up with heart disease, but they probably didn’t need to. Plenty of previous studies have already shown that chronic stress is a worldwide problem that shortens life spans, and sadness and anger are never far away when you’re chronically stressed.
Now, no one is suggesting that all those happy people are just smiling their way out of serious problems, but their attitude towards the slings and arrows that life throws at them has a great bearing on how well they cope. A positive attitude can get people through the tough times and make the good times even better!
Anxiety is not good for hypertension, which is not good for heart health, so it might be time to look at how you deal with everyday situations, and see whether you can’t put a spring in your step and a smile on your face to help get you through them better.
