According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 70 million Americans suffer from high blood pressure also known as hypertension. That’s 29% of the American population or 1 out of every 3 adults. Of that 29%, only 50% of the inflicted hypertensives have their blood pressure under control. Reducing high blood pressure naturally through properly designed fitness training is a highly endorsed solution by the CDC.
Why does normal blood pressure matter? Well CDC stats conclude 360,000 Americans died last year as a result of uncontrolled high blood pressure. Heart attacks, major strokes and kidney failure are direct ramifications of uncontrolled high blood pressure or hypertension.
Aside from taking the lazy man’s way out by succumbing to a life time of ingesting medication which coincidently can cause other health issues, there are healthy lifestyle habits that have been proven to be very effective in reducing high blood pressure. It’s important to note that reducing high blood pressure with blood pressure medications often augments physical inactivity, lethargy and low motivation. Taking medication is just a stepping stone to greater health problems and those who take blood pressure medicines report feeling very old and run down.
Reducing high blood pressure naturally with fitness encompasses four modalities.
- Changing your eating habits
- Weight control and achieving a healthy body weight
- Incorporation of the proper physical activity into your life
- Elimination of a smoking habit and reducing alcohol use
Reducing high blood pressure naturally encompasses integration of all 4 modalities. As a personal trainer and medical exercise specialist with over 20 years in the industry, I understand that developing these lifestyle changes is very challenging to the beginner. With proper coaching, the chances of success is drastically increased. Once you learn to incorporate the four modalities, you will reduce your high blood pressure and improve your overall health. Reducing high blood pressure naturally requires an expert in both the fitness and medical industry. This person is known as a Medical Exercise Specialist. Medical Exercise Specialists are experts at understanding human anatomy and physiology from both a medical and fitness perspective. To become a Medical Exercise Specialist you MUST have worked in the medical industry for an extended period of time. This is a prerequisite. Moreover you must pass a stringent test and hands on scrutiny by Physicians and Physical Therapists.
Reducing high blood pressure naturally can happen in as little as 30 days if the client/ patient can comply with the coaching of the Medical Exercise Specialist. In my experience 85% of hypertensives often convert to hypotensive. (Low blood pressure) and are forced to discontinue prescribed antihypertensive drugs. Your personal Physician is consulted before any change in medicine is made.
With a perfectly designed and monitored health and fitness program comes absolute weight loss and a significant boost in psychology. Learning new eating behaviors often spurs higher levels of energy. People who previously had high blood pressure often describe this transformation as a religious experience and life changing. They often report feeling young and rejuvenated.
Reducing high blood pressure naturally is a methodical task. Figuring out the proper schematics and where to begin is often confusing to the lay person. With the guidance, education and hands on approach from the right health and fitness pro the chances of success are increased exponentially. If you are currently dealing with hypertension that is uncontrolled, or if you have succumbed to a life of being dependent on antihypertensive medicine, it is time to open your mind and think about the future of your long term health. Either continue down the slippery slope, or choose upward mobility. The solution is available, you simply just need to make the first move.
