Recovery From A Virus Can Include Extreme Tiredness    

It Is Called Post-Viral Syndrome, And Also Includes Body Aches, Variations In Blood Pressure, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Sleep Disorders, And Depression    

A virus can affect a person for several days, but after recovery, life goes on. However, there are other kinds of viruses that can alter life, even after the person has recovered. The person might feel very tired for a long time. This occurs in influenza, some versions of SARS, and also in the current pandemic. It is called post-viral fatigue syndrome, and is very debilitating, to the extreme that the sufferer is unable to carry on his daily activities. Other symptoms are headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, variations in blood pressure, sleep disorders, pain across the body, and depression, among others. In some cases, there is a lack of smell and taste. Symptoms are similar to chronic fatigue syndrome but worsen when the sufferer goes through physical or mental activity. There is no clear cause, and doctors can give a diagnosis only through their symptoms. Specialists believe that it is related to a weakening of the immune system. There is no medication, and the suggested treatment is resting. Additional information click here.


Garlic Is A Beneficial Natural Treatment For Lowering Blood Pressure    

It Contributes To The Regulation Of Endothelial Nitric Oxide, Promoting The Relaxation Of Smooth Muscle Cells, Lowering Hypertension    

Hypertension is a gradual condition that increases blood pressure. It is usually treated by medication, but there are natural home treatments that will help lowering blood pressure. One of them is garlic. It does not only add a tasty flavor to dishes but also has health benefits for the cardiovascular system, including high cholesterol levels and atherosclerosis. Garlic contributes to the regulation of endothelial nitric oxide, which promotes the relaxation of smooth muscle cells, resulting in a decrease in blood pressure. Garlic must not be considered as a substitution of medication for high blood pressure, nor will quickly lower it, but it will help control it, along with a healthy lifestyle, including a diet low in fat and sugars, physical activity, and weight control. It can be taken in salads, soups, and tea, among others. More info click here.


Atrial Fibrillation Is A Heart Condition That Has A Correlation With Sleep Apnea    

In Many Cases, Treating Sleep Apnea Helps Control The Symptoms Of Atrial Fibrillation    

Atrial fibrillation, also known as AFib, is an irregular heart rhythm, and one of the symptoms is a rapid heartbeat. It is caused by a conflict in the electrical signals in the upper and lower chambers of the heart. Many people do not know that they are suffering from it because it may not show symptoms. It is a progressive condition that has no cure but is manageable, and which patients require to follow prescribed treatment, such as blood thinners or anticoagulants. Also, there is a correlation between sleep apnea and AFib. In many cases, patients looking for a diagnosis and treatment for sleep apnea have found out that they also suffer from AFib. On the other hand, treatment for sleep apnea has helped control the symptoms of AFib. There are also smartwatches that can detect AFib but are no substitute for a medical diagnosis. In some cases, the smartwatch can give a false positive, which will increase stress, anxiety, and blood pressure. Click here for more information.


Chiropractic Care Is Not Only For The Treatment Of Injuries Or Accidents    

It Can Help With Prevention Of Other Health Conditions, Improving Sleep, Bowel Movements, And Circulation, Reducing Anxiety, And Better Joint And Muscle Movement    

Chiropractic treatment is usually considered a rehabilitation therapy after an injury or accident. It is also considered as prevention therapy for the prevention of injuries, especially for athletes and dancers. However, it can be used as a prevention treatment for everyone. Chiropractic treatments maintain a healthy relationship between the muscles, bones, and nerves. There are everyday activities that can be harmful to the body, such as sitting on a desk for prolonged periods. In the long term, it will have negative effects on the spine and the core muscles. The same case occurs for driving for a long time every day, improper lifting of groceries or children, and house chores, even sleeping in poor positions, among others. Preventive chiropractic care will treat the small injuries that might add up in the future. It has several benefits besides improving movement in muscles and joints, such as pain relief. Improved circulation, better sleep, decreased anxiety, improved bowel regularity, and less heartburn. It can also act as preventive care for health conditions that, untreated, would require surgery, such as disorders related to the spine. Even it cannot seem to be necessary, it can improve the quality of life of a person. Additional details click here.


New Cuffless Monitor Proven More Accurate Than Traditional Blood Pressure Monitors    

It Prevents “White Coat Hypertension” And Can Also Be Used In A Challenging Environment    

Blood pressure is usually measured with inflatable cuffs. However, a new cuffless device has proven more accurate than traditional monitors. They use a technology called PPG (photoplethysmography-based monitoring). Compared with a cuff-based monitor, it does not require the patient to remain stable and detects blood pressure changes with more accuracy. It also allows taking measures at home, or outside the doctor’s office, preventing “white coat hypertension”. This occurs when the patient is stressed when visiting the doctor, which provides an irregularly high blood pressure reading. The alternative is having a blood pressure monitor at home, which is also cuff-based. However, the cuffless PPG device can perform measures in challenging environments. It can also replace portable diagnostic devices that require blood pressure monitor for 24 hours. More Information click here.


New Procedure Based On Artificial Intelligence Allows Diagnosis Of Hypertension Without Human Intervention    

It Identifies High Blood Pressure From Retinal Scans, Based On Machine Learning    

Researchers are using artificial intelligence to detect high blood pressure using images of the blood vessels of the retina. In many cases, hypertension does not show symptoms, or these can be confused by other conditions, such as headaches. If left untreated, it can result in organ damage and an increased risk of stroke. Therefore, many people are not aware they suffer from high blood pressure because they do not have symptoms, and do not perceive the need to visit a doctor. One diagnostic procedure consists of inspecting a scanned image of the blood vessels in the retina, but it requires to be reviewed by a doctor for a final opinion. Researchers have used machine learning and an artificial intelligence system to scan thousands of vascular scans and teach the system to identify signs of arterial narrowing and other indications related to hypertension. This system allows a diagnosis with a high level of accuracy without human intervention. Click here for more details.


Dark Chocolate Has Many Benefits For The Cardiovascular System And Brain Health    

If Helps Lowering Blood Pressure, Prevents Blood Clots, And Neurogenerative Diseases, Such As Parkinson’s And Alzheimer’s    

Chocolate is considered unhealthy due to its excess sugar. However, dark chocolate is the opposite. It contains antioxidants called flavonoids, which have several health benefits. These also help the good cholesterol (HDL) absorb the bad cholesterol (LDL), decreasing the overall cholesterol level. Flavonoids are also beneficial for the cardiovascular system by relaxing the blood vessels, decreasing blood pressure, preventing blood clots, prevent blood clots, and decreasing the risk of heart disease. It also improves brain function by increasing the blood flow to the brain, reducing the risk of neurogenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. The reason is that the increase in blood flow results in higher oxygen delivery to the brain and also the removal of toxins. Another benefit of lower blood pressure is a decrease in the risk of stroke. Additionally, dark chocolate contains polyphenols, which, as the flavonoids have anti-inflammatory properties, preventing chronic conditions such as heart disease or type 2 diabetes, and protecting the brain, liver, lungs, and heart, among others. These also fight oxidative stress caused by free radicals, which damage DNA. Additional info click here.


Poor Oral Health Will Result In Other Health Conditions, Not Only Cavities And Gum Disease    

It Increases The Risk Of Heart Attack, Stroke, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, And Joint Inflammation    

Poor oral health will result in complications in the oral cavity, such as cavities and gum disease. However, it will also be the cause of complications and diseases in other parts of the body. Among them is a higher risk of suffering a heart attack. The bacteria responsible for oral plaque can enter the bloodstream through bleeding gums, which increases the risk of heart attack or plaque. Other substances generated by gum inflammation can affect the brain, increasing the risk of Alzheimer’s. Also, gum inflammation can affect other parts of the body, such as the joints. There is also a link between oral diseases and hypertension. Gum disease can affect the absorption of insulin, increasing the risk of diabetes. Therefore, it is very important to brush and floss at least twice a day to get rid of the harmful bacteria. Other healthy habits are a gum massage to improve circulation and prevent loose teeth, and also clean the tongue because it has also harmful bacteria. More details click here.


Poor Habits Not Only Have A Negative Effect On The Body But Also Cause Premature Aging    

Among Them Are Poor Oral Health, An Unbalanced Diet, Not Sleeping Enough, Poor Hydration, And Excess Stress     

Many people have poor habits that do not only affect health but also result in premature aging. Among them is a lack of fruits and vegetables in the diet, which result in a low level of vitamin C. Its antioxidant properties fight the toxins and free radicals that damage the skin. These free radicals not only cause aging in the skin but also in other parts of the body. Another poor habit is not sleeping enough. This does not allow the body to regenerate properly. Studies have shown that a reduction of one hour of sleep during 5 consecutive days results in a decrease of insulin sensitivity by 50%, which means that the capacity for metabolizing energy es cut by half. This increases the risk of inflammation, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, among others. Another poor habit is related to oral hygiene. Not brushing and flossing twice a day will result in gum disease, which increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. It will also lead to cavities and tooth loss, which change the appearance, lowering the cheeks and pulling the chin out, giving the appearance of an older person. Also, not drinking enough water causes premature aging in the skin and affects hair health. Excess sitting at the desk or on a couch will also affect joints, blood circulation, spine, and cardiovascular health. Additionally, not being able to control stress releases cortisol, the hormone that prepares the body for potential dangers, has also negative effects on several organs, causes memory loss, and increases the risk for Alzheimer’s and other brain-related disorders.

Chronic Stress Can Cause Symptoms Similar To A Heart Attack    

It Is Called Broken Heart Syndrome And Can Be Triggered By A Stressful Emotional Episode    

Stress promotes the production of cortisol, a hormone that prepared the body for potential danger. In the case of chronic stress, the excessive production of cortisol can result in organ damage, affecting the cardiovascular system, brain kidneys, and liver, among others. Stress can cause a condition called stress-induced cardiomyopathy, which can result in a heart attack. This is because chronic stress increases blood pressure and heartbeat. It is also related to other heart conditions, such as coronary artery disease, heart disease, heart failure, and tachycardia. A sudden increase in stress levels can cause a “broken heart syndrome”, which feels like a heart attack, including shortness of breath and chest pain. It can be caused by emotional events such as the sudden death of a loved one. In comparison, a real heart attack occurs when there is a blockage in an artery to the heart. In the case of stress-induced cardiomyopathy, there is no artery blockage, but the heat fails to pump blood efficiently. This condition can be avoided by reducing emotional stress using meditation, exercise, and mindfulness. Additional information click here.
