Volunteering: Weapon Against Hypertension?
NATURAL ONLINE DOCTOR’S SUNDAY BLOG
One out of 3 American adults (i.e., around 100 million) are struck with Hypertension (high blood pressure). Many of those are not even aware of, since Hypertension isn’t associated with pain or any other uncomfortable physical or spiritual symptoms.
The real culprit are the potential consequences of Hypertension related to our cardiovascular system: increasing heart attack risk by 300%, and stroke risk by 400%. Making Hypertension 2nd cause of premature death in our western civilization.
As easy it is to measure one’s hypertensive status (some pharmacies offer this as a free service – to potentially sell hypertensive drugs), the more it seems difficult to counterbalance.
Because most healthcare providers are convinced Hypertension is idiopathic, speak: reasons N/N. But without knowing what the reason for your Hypertension is, it is difficult to counterbalance.
In fact, the underlying causes of Hypertension according to scientific validation are well certified as lifestyle related such as, inter alia:
- Malnutrition (especially processed foods high in processed salt and sugar, as well as trans and other harmful fats, etc.) and nutrients deficiency;
- Sedentary lifestyle (with 2 thirds of American adults being obese);
- Vitamin D deficiency (lack of regular sun exposure).
Unfortunately, Hypertension drugs (such as diuretics, different blockers, inhibitors, etc.) with an annual sales volume of $20 billion are not the logic answer, as suggested by some healthcare providers. While these drugs do not cure, they worsen the patient’s health status because of manifold debilitating side effects, with risk of premature death increased by 20%. As they impair biological functions in your body. Not enough, once starting to take hypertension drugs means to take them until last day of your life. Unless you change your lifestyle instead.
According to a recent study developed at Carnegie Mellon University, published in the journal Psychology and Aging, one specific lifestyle change can almost ‘affect a miracle’ by reducing your high blood pressure risk by 40%: yes, 4 hours of social volunteering. Due to the psychological effects of volunteering, such as, inter alia, more self-esteem and satisfaction in life.
