It seems that everyone and his brother are experts on nutrition, exercise and healthy lifestyle choices. In fact, it seems like the only people who aren’t experts on the subject are healthcare practitioners! With so many experts on the subject, why is obesity the number 2 cause of preventable death in the US, second only to cigarette smoking?
Obviously, there is a lot of false and harmful data out there that is not helping and is actually making people’s health worse.
Here’s something to consider:
Chronic illnesses, that is to say, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, elevated cholesterol/triglycerides, metabolic syndrome- all the, “Well, I am getting older” diseases and disorders, typically respond quite favorably to Therapeutic Life Style Changes, in other words, dietary changes and exercise.
Over 78% of all the pharmaceutical drugs made on planet are meant to treat these chronic illnesses. That’s right, 78% and yet these illnesses are on a rampage and taking a lot of people to the cemetery in their wake.
In fact, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) recommends making therapeutic lifestyle changes for 12 weeks as the treatment of choice when trying to lower blood pressures. For 6 weeks the patient is supposed to change his diet and exercise. If this doesn’t work, then the patient is supposed to try supplements for another 6 weeks. If at the end of 12 weeks there is no change then the doctor should prescribe the lowest doses of the safest medications to lower blood pressure.
