Easiest Way to Cure High Blood Pressure, Diabetes and High Cholesterol
An article has just appeared in the latest edition of the journal Psychology & Health that suggests the easiest way to eliminate most modern diseases.
It’s especially effective for high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and other related diseases.
And it literally takes no effort and is as natural as can be.
Because the relationship between vacation and health is fairly poorly studied, the scientists decided to find out whether time off can reduce our risk of metabolic syndrome (the precursor to diabetes) and reduce associated symptoms.
The only previous study they could find on the subject found that people who took regular vacations were less likely to die of cardiovascular causes or prematurely of any cause.
The Syracuse University academics used 63 workers who were eligible for paid vacations. They invited them into the laboratory where they conducted a range of physiological measures to assess their metabolic status.
Together with the physiological tests, they also asked them about their vacation behavior in the last 12 months.
These participants had taken five vacations during the past 12 months, using two weeks of their paid vacation days.
The more vacations they took, the fewer harmful metabolic symptoms they showed. Each additional vacation reduced their risk for the metabolic syndrome by 25 percent.
We should probably define what metabolic syndrome is. It’s said to be present if you have three of these four symptoms: large waist circumference, high blood pressure, high triglycerides (fats in the blood), and high fasting blood sugar levels.
These are also major risks for cardiovascular disease and events like heart attacks and strokes.
It isn’t known exactly why vacations have such a positive effect, but the results make it clear that they really do.
Any change to compulsory vacation time will probably be a long time coming, so until it does, you had better take charge of your health!
And if you’re looking to lose weight;
The Weird Arthritis and Weight Loss Connection
(different from what many might think)
One of the problems with arthritis is that because it limits people’s mobility, they move less and are therefore at increased risk of weight gain.
This often leads to severe disability.
So, the obvious solution is to lose weight. Right?
Not so fast, says a new study recently published in the journal Arthritis Care & Research. This study investigated the link between weight and disability due to arthritis.
At the beginning of the study, researchers expected to find that the most obese people were the most likely to suffer from arthritis that was related disability. They assumed that weight loss would be an effective treatment to halt the development of this disease.
They analyzed the medical data of 23,323 people with rheumatoid arthritis in the National Data Bank of Rheumatic Diseases, and of 1,697 arthritis sufferers in the Veterans Affairs RA registry.
Disability was measured according to the participant’s responses on the health assessment questionnaire.
When their details were first entered into these databases, it was found that those people who were obese would be substantially more likely than those who were overweight to suffer from arthritis-related disability.
In subsequent years, it was found that those who were obese were also much more likely than those who were overweight to develop such disabilities.
Where the study became surprising, however, was with the role of weight loss.
If obesity is the problem, then weight loss is the solution. Right?
Oddly enough, those who shed their weight did not benefit at all, and still experienced an increased risk of disability compared with people who were never obese or overweight to start off with.
The reason is that if you don’t reverse your arthritis (and the traditional medical system has no idea how), you can’t get your mobility back even if you lose weight.
The problem is that most diets and workouts don’t work because they ignore the “third element of weight loss”.
