Lower High Blood Pressure On the Dash Diet

If you do not feel like making a dramatic change in the way you eat you could find small eating changes that

you can live with and still improve your diet.

Here are two studies on the (DASH DIET AND DASH SODIUM)

Results of the first study (DASH DIET) showed that blood pressure could be reduced dramatically by the

following daily eating plan:

· 7 -8 servings of grains and grain products

· 4-5 servings of vegetables

· 4-5 servings of fruits

· 2-3 servings of low-fat or fat-free dairy products

· 2 or less servings of meat, poultry, and fish

· 4-5 servings of nuts, seeds, and dry beans a week

· 2-3 servings of fats and oils

· 5 sweets per week

Following the above eating plan actually lowered blood pressure as much as some blood pressure medications

without any of the bad side effects. Those with higher blood pressure saw a greater reduction than those with

normal blood pressure, but all people who followed the eating plan were able to lower their blood pressure.

Interestingly enough, people who did not completely change their eating habits to the above plan were still able

to lower their blood pressure by just eating more fruits and vegetables (although not as much).

The next study (DASH SODIUM) focused on sodium (or salt) intake and its effect on blood pressure. Again,

people were able to lower their blood pressure the most by following the above eating plan and lowering their

salt intake. Other people saw reduction in their blood pressure by just lowering salt intake and not making any

other changes in their eating habits.

· These two studies showed that by making some changes in the way we eat we could see great health benefits.

Even when the changes were small, like increasing fruits and vegetables, health was improved.

FACTS & TIPS

A word to the wise.

A women took her car in for repairs she always used the same place. She made the mistake of giving all her

keys since her address is on record all they did was duplicate her keys to her home. She was raped and badly

beaten. No forced entry. Whenever you have to leave your key's with an auto shop always remember to just

give them the car keys only.
