Preventive health care must be planned and executed ahead of time, even when illness is absent.
You must build healthy habits even when it's not convenient. You must believe that maintaining a health lifestyle is important enough to make a few sacrifices. Eating right, getting exercise and avoiding destructive substances like tobacco, alcohol and excessive amounts of sugar and salt are crucial, as is getting enough sleep each night. Healthy habits are an "automatic" defense against most illnesses and can provide us a long, healthy – and thus happy – life.
Hypertension is the mother of all diseases
High blood pressure (hypertension) can quietly damage your body by damaging the muscles, blood vessales, heart and kidney, for years before symptoms develop. Left uncontrolled, you may wind up with a disability, a poor quality of life or even a fatal heart attack. Fortunately, with treatment and lifestyle changes, you can control your high blood pressure to reduce your risk of life-threatening complications.
