Your cardiovascular health and the health of your blood pressure are keys to your overall wellness and impact how well you age. Heart disease use to be the number one fear for the adult population. Recently this has been replaced by Alzheimer’s disease. But when you look at the mortality statistics and realize that every 34 seconds an American dies of heart disease, your cardiovascular system and blood pressure take on new meaning.
For example, about 72 million Americans (approximately 1 in 3 adults) have high blood pressure. Because high blood pressure doesn’t have any direct and noticeable symptoms, many don’t even realize that they have this deadly disease. It is why doctors called it the “Silent Killer!” This deadly disease is adding to the workload of your heart, arteries, kidney and other sensitive organs. This increases the risk of stroke, congestive heart failure, kidney failure and heart attack. When you add obesity, smoking, high cholesterol or diabetes, the risk for a heart attack or stroke increases exponentially.
You have the power to make a significant difference in how high blood pressure affects you. You have the ability to improve your cardiovascular system. Unfortunately, most people want the federal government, the managed health care industry, and the pharmaceutical companies to come up with the solution. Although they play a role in the process, there are many steps you can take to help prevent high blood pressure and heart disease.
