    By Health Blog on September 3, 2009 | 2 Comments2 Comments  Comments

    In today’s busy world, every second person you meet has his or her share of woes and foes. The modern lifestyle exerts so much pressure on our nerves that we end up suffering from hypertension.

    Experts mainly divide the causes of hypertension in two categories; those which are out of our control and those which can be controlled be putting in some effort. There are some undeniable facts in our lives which we don’t like and which cannot be changed no matter what we do. Our growing age, our looks, our financial position can cause us severe attacks of hypertension. But there is no need to worry as there are even more causes that can be controlled. Many people think that smoking can cause damage to their lungs, but there are more reasons to quit it as it also causes high blood pressure.

    It has also been observed that on average those people who are overweight also have high blood pressure as they are constantly worrying about finding new ways to lose weight. In fact, hypertension aggravates their situation and their medication stops having its effects. If you want to ease your hypertension problem then you should direct your efforts from staying away from smoking and alcohol.

    Doctors also suggest that potassium ans some other important nutrients also help decrease blood pressure, as their scarcity in the body is one of the causes of hypertension.

    So, rather than taking good-for-nothing pills to sort your hypertension, you better start addressing problems which are its cause. By adopting regular exercise, refraining from smoking and taking healthy diet you can considerably lower your blood pressure.

  • Effects Of Alcohol On Anxiety Patients
    By Health Blog on July 4, 2009 | No Comments  Comments

    Traditionally it is thought that one of the reasons for growing anxiety in our society is the consumption of alcohol. Alcohol has been used as a depressant over the years, and although it is not a cause of growing anxiety but still it creates a devastating combination with anxiety patients.

    Alcohol can aggravate anxiety

    Alcohol is only a temporary solution to a long term problem. Those who have used alcohol in connection with anxiety, state that it helps them getting rid of it but in fact they are only running away from their problem rather than taking the bull by the horns.

    The usage of alcohol can calm down the nerves of the concerned patient but it can create several other complications like heart problems. It has also been observed that such patients show a tendency towards violence and rough behavior going to the extent of criminal activities.

    While alcohol is not the source of anxiety, but it can certainly aggravate the condition of the patient. Of course, alcoholism is the most easy resort of the depressed, but this is the time when you are in need of social interactions like never before, and to find comfort with your family and friends, whoever you trust. So the next time anxiety hits you, try making it to the therapist, or even better your home, rather than gulping spirits in the bar.
