The number 1 cause of death and disability in the United States is dietary risks. The risk is now even greater than smoking.

Eli Ben-Yehuda

Written by Eli Ben-Yehuda

On August 9, 2017

Why should you slow your beating heart? Every ten beats per minute increase is associated with a 10 to 20% increase in the risk of premature death. There seems to be a continuous increase in risk with increasing heart rate, at least for values above a beat a second.
 
But how should you decrease your resting heart rate? Intense cardio-workout, or beans?
Yes, beans.

We are all aware that over exposure to sunlight can pose risks to our health.

The Secret To A Long Fulfilling Life Is…

Eli Ben-Yehuda

Written by Eli Ben-Yehuda

On April 5, 2017

On average, people spend only about 5 percent of their time outside, and that time could include things like taking out the trash … not necessarily what we would call quality time. The other 95 percent of our time is spent indoors. Indoors? Yes indoors with the artificial lighting, camped out in front of the t.v, the computer, and whatever else to seem to call our attention to living in the “Great Indoors”.

 

According to the latest research published in the “Lancet”, “The Tsimane, a forager-horticulturalist population of the Bolivian Amazon with few coronary artery disease risk factors, have the lowest reported levels of coronary artery disease of any population recorded to date. These findings suggest that coronary atherosclerosis can be avoided in most people by achieving a lifetime with very low LDL, low blood pressure, low glucose, normal body-mass index, no smoking, and plenty of physical activity.” An 80-year-old Tsimane has about the same heart and artery health as the average American in his or her 50s, the team reports in the Lancet medical journal.

 

“Most of the Tsimane are able to live their entire life without developing any coronary atherosclerosis. This has never been seen in any prior research,” said Dr. Gregory Thomas of Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, who worked on the study.

 

More Time In Nature:

Being in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, and stress and increases pleasant feelings. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it contributes to your physical well-being, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones. It may even reduce mortality, according to scientists such as public health researchers Stamatakis and Mitchell.

 

Research done in hospitals, offices, and schools has found that even a simple plant in a room can have a significant impact on stress and anxiety.

 

In addition, nature helps us cope with pain. Because we are genetically programmed to find trees, plants, water, and other nature elements engrossing, we are absorbed by nature scenes and distracted from our pain and discomfort.

 

This is nicely demonstrated in a now classic study of patients who underwent gallbladder surgery; half had a view of trees and half had a view of a wall. According to the physician who conducted the study, Robert Ulrich, the patients with the view of trees tolerated pain better, appeared to nurses to have fewer negative effects, and spent less time in a hospital.

 

One of the most intriguing areas of current research is the impact of nature on general well-being. In one study in Mind, 95% of those interviewed said their mood improved after spending time outside, changing from depressed, stressed, and anxious to more calm and balanced. Other studies by Ulrich, Kim, and Cervinka show that time in nature or scenes of nature are associated with a positive mood,  and psychological well-being, meaningfulness, and vitality.

 

Furthermore, time in nature or viewing nature scenes increases our ability to pay attention. Because humans find nature inherently interesting, we can naturally focus on what we are experiencing out in nature. This also provides a respite for our overactive minds, refreshing us for new tasks.

 

So it is spring time. The trees are blossoming, the flowers are blooming, and the grass is green. I walk in the fields below the mountains and take in all that nature has to show me. There is an abundance of tranquility and quiet inside me. The truth is nature is the prescription for better health, lowering blood pressure, elevating moods, and is a tonic for the soul. This is the secret to a long fulfilling life.

“How Not To Die” – Book Review.

Eli Ben-Yehuda

Written by Eli Ben-Yehuda

On March 26, 2017

I recently purchased Dr. Michael Greger’s book after using his website in the extensive research we do here to bring you weekly newsletter articles. His website NutritionFacts.org brings information to those of us concerned with ensuring optimal health for ourselves ,our family, and friends.

 

I found the book to be extremely informative and helpful in dealing with my blood pressure. Chapter 7 is entitled “How Not To Die From High Blood Pressure.”  In this chapter he not only discusses the reasons for high blood pressure,but also addresses them as well. For example in discussing a recent article published in the “Lancet” Doctor Greger brought to light a recent study from the Bill And Melinda Gates Foundation.

 

In the “Global Burden of Disease” study, 500 researchers performed extensive research in health nutrition. For example do you know how many lives would be saved globally if the world cut back on soda? The answer? 299,521. But according to the research bacon, bologna, ham, and hot dogs and processed foods are blamed for 800,000 deaths globally per year. This is part of the SAD (Standard American Diet).

 

Hypertension is responsible for 9 Million Deaths per year but if people ate more fruit, we would save almost 5 Million lives annually. If people increased their consumption of nuts and seeds 2.5 Million lives would be saved annually. If people ate more vegetables 1.7 million lives would be saved annually.

 

Dr. Greger’s book tackles the issues that the medical establishment seems to be afraid to tackle. Because his website does not have paid advertising, he is not beholding to the large meat, dairy, and egg lobbyists in Washington D.C who would prevent information from being made public.

 

He compares various diets that are out there that claim to support health and gives you all the information necessary to make an informed choice. If you are serious about your health I highly recommend this book.

Dangerous Myths about High Blood Pressure.

Eli Ben-Yehuda

Written by Eli Ben-Yehuda

On February 1, 2017

Recent surveys reveal that about 79 million people in the United States have high blood pressure. This translates to about 1 in 3 people. To be able to treat high blood pressure we need to get past some “Myth-Understandings.” So here are a few common myths about high blood pressure and the facts we need to know to help lower our blood pressure.

 

  1. MYTH: In-Office Blood Pressure Tests Are The Gold Standard-  One problem is that many people suffer from “White Coat Syndrome so their pressure is elevated at the office.
    FACT – You can accurately check your own blood pressure at home. Our advice use only a unit that fits around your upper arm, not your wrist or your finger being as they do not give as accurate a reading.
  2. MYTH: I Can Still Use Salt It’s No Big Deal- With salt being virtually in everything we eat the amount of salt adults consume in a day is much more than the recommended daily allowance. Such food items such as canned foods, processed foods, and pickles contain some of the highest sodium contents.
    FACT – Even if the use of excess salt does not elevate your blood pressure, it is still causing internal damage. Also excessive use of salt is almost a guaranteed ticket for high blood pressure.
  3. MYTH: My Diet Has No Effect On My Blood Pressure: Many people taking high blood pressure still continue to eat what they want without the slightest clue that this attitude helped them in the first place get high blood pressure. The Standard American Diet SAD, is responsible for most of America’s health ailments today.
    FACT – Changing your eating lifestyle has been proven time and time again to help lower your blood pressure. For many changing how they eat, getting exercise, quitting smoking, and reducing sodium intake have reduced or eliminated the need for high blood pressure medication.

This One Emotion Is Bad for Your Heart

Eli Ben-Yehuda

Written by Eli Ben-Yehuda

On January 29, 2017

Anger can tax your heart and elevate your blood pressure. But new research is showing that depression can be as devastating to your heart as high cholesterol. Depression affects 19 million Americans or 9.5% of the population in any given year. So it is staggering to think of the ramification this can have on the heart health of these individuals.

 

This new study from researchers in Germany is based on the examination of 3,428 people. There ages ranged from between 45 to 74. It found that depression is just as much of a risk factor for death from a cardiovascular event then other risk factors such as diabetes and obesity to name a few.

 

Depression was determined to be a factor in 15 percent of cardiovascular deaths. This compared to 8 to 21 percent for high cholesterol, and just 5 to 8 percent for diabetes. Only smoking and high blood pressure, at 17 to 20 percent and 30 to 40 percent respectively, ranked higher than depression.

 

“That’s why it’s important not only for people with cardiovascular risk factors to take care of their mental health,” says May, “but also for people with depression to take care of their hearts. These conditions have a compounding effect,” she says, “and they should all be treated—whether you have one risk factor or five.”

Gardening Lowers Your Stress & Blood Pressure

Eli Ben-Yehuda

Written by Eli Ben-Yehuda

On January 18, 2017

There is nothing like walking in a park on a cool spring morning. The sunlight filters through the trees, a breeze passes across your face, and you feel this sense of contentment. All is well. You feel your stress roll of your back as if a massive weight has been removed. That is what being outdoors does for us.

So it is surprising that many more of us don’t practice gardening at home creating our own piece of paradise. It does not matter if your garden is in the country, or on a high rise rooftop, gardening lowers our stress levels which in turn lowers our blood pressure.

Gardening lowers stress just by being exposed to nature. For example, being in the sunlight has been shown to raise serotonin levels in our brain. Serotonin is the neurotransmitter in our brain that increases our sense of wellbeing. It also increases our melatonin, the hormone responsible for us getting a great night’s sleep.

Through deliberate mental focus and meditating on the actions of gardening, we are taking time to set aside our problems for a while. We all know it’s healthy to take a break from our stressors and gardening provides that outlet for a lot of people.

Finally gardening also helps you connect with your surroundings. If you are gardening alone it can help you reconnect with yourself, while gardening with a spouse allows you quality time to work together. The whole idea is creating a space for yourself and others that is stress free. Myself when I work in the garden the smell of the rich earth in my hands gives a sense of contentment. Especially if your are growing from seeds you sow, the miracle that occurs in the ground from seed to plant still fills me will wonder.
