I want to thank everyone who contributed their thoughts to our last discussion about what to do when hosting carnivores. If you missed that post, it’s a hot one, with plenty of room for more discussion, so please stop on by.
That post is a good reminder that many of us are struggling to remain true to what we know is the right way to eat (for us at this time, no judging!). Just because I blog about healthy eating/living doesn’t mean I don’t struggle to make good choices for my health each and every day. I’m always open to motivation, and the following infographic provides me with an immense amount of it to keep going. I hope it helps you too!
It wasn’t created by people who are promoting a plant-based diet as a preventative measure against heart disease. It was sent to me by a company trying to sell reduced cost prescription drugs! How funny is that? But it’s still an awesome reminder. I’ve also heard of many a Dentist in New York suggesting that maintaining your oral hygiene can improve your heart’s health so keep that in mind.

I have a lot of mixed emotions when I read something like this, but mostly anger. Anger that the cost per year of heart disease is $108 BILLION. Anger that a person can know and understand that their diet is killing them, costing society tons of resources, and bringing great anguish to their loved ones and still chose to make no lifestyle changes. I just can’t understand their thought processes, as if I knew that something that I was doing could cause heart disease, I wouldn’t waste any time in changing my lifestyle. It wouldn’t even be a question for me. But knowing that people are still unaware about how sugar and salt both contribute to heart disease and still consume these foods anyway, is just unfathomable to me. More problems could arise from this, and it may significantly affect your life, so why aren’t they doing anything about it? It’s hard not to judge, but I know that I should not and cannot judge another human being.
Preventing heart disease is a concern for many people, but the majority of research seems to suggest that finding ways to lower your blood pressure is one way to reduce your risk of developing complications. Some people like to use natural remedies such as CBD oil to lower their blood pressure. If you’d like to find out more about the possible link between cbd and blood pressure, take a look at the article I’ve linked. Alternatively, some people might like to consider other ways to do this. Heart disease is something that could affect any of us, so it’s important that we all pay close attention to our heart rate as it could be telling us something about our health. To track your heart activity, it might be worth looking for some EKG monitors for home use. This should help you to prevent heart disease and ensure your heart is healthy.
