Welcome to our 6th Nutrition Care newsletter edition. This month we are focusing on Hypertension, one of our 21st century lifestyle diseases.
Hypertension is another name for high blood pressure which can lead to severe health complications increasing the risk of heart disease, stroke, and even sometimes death. High blood pressure or hypertension is a serious health condition that should not be ignored.
High blood pressure patients are statistically at a higher risk for heart diseases and stroke. There can be many contributing factors causing high blood pressure including a sedentary lifestyle, poor diet, obesity, smoking, stress, or having a family history of hypertension, just to name a few. However, generally accepted is the direct link to chronic or low grade chronic inflammation.
Following the ImuPro diet with regular exercise can help you control your blood pressure. For maximum benefit, combine exercise suggestions with your individual ImuPro diet for the elimination of IgG-reactive foods.
Also learning to manage stress can help control blood pressure. A natural and safe method to counter hypertension is e.g. by practicing yoga and by eating "blue".
