That is what we thought at first considering my Dad's history. After taking BP meds for a couple years my wonderful Dr. did tests and started trying different diets. Found a certain food group to avoid BP dropped I have been off BP meds for alittle over a year boom 180/80 and now I only have to get my DOT medical every 2 years yay
First let me say I am of the opinion the human body is a piece of beautiful equipment no matter what form it is in or age. Habits are only a state of mind which can be controllable by the mind.....I happen to also think the mind is a powerful tool.
I tend to follow the natural order of living and do not buy into bill of goods that are presented as good for me from the outside world. What I mean here is TV advertisements or radio or even displays at stores.
Common sense thinking, what does it all revolve around....It labeled as money.....and there is a huge difference between need and want.
The Medical field has come along way with new treatments and discoveries....But herb treatment pretty much been put on the back burner....I talking natural grown herbs....I find no reason not to use the best of both the natural or medical.
As with any thing it falls down to need or want....How you apply this to good health is a matter of what your thinking is processing.
So, here's the rest of the story..
The student was driving, with over 100 of his required training hours done, trainer in the passenger seat. Both were wearing seat belts. Student was going to have his 80th birthday in May.
Ya need meds if ya fall into the "genetic" category (period)
For some people, high blood levels of cholesterol come from a diet that's high in saturated fat and animal products, but for others, high cholesterol is genetic: It runs in the family. In addition to getting cholesterol from dietary sources like meat and dairy, our bodies make cholesterol, too. And some people produce more cholesterol than can be safely handled, causing a buildup of fat and plaque in their arteries.
Same goes for Diabetes and Congestive heart failure.
Genetics.... are everything these days.
Think the children of today will have longer life spans than children of 60 years ago?
