Super Food Blog: Flax seeds

Trying to cut back on meat on your diet? Flaxseeds are loaded with healthy fats and plant protein and are super sources for both soluble and insoluble fiber.

Having these will increase the omega 3 fatty acids in your diet meaning a reduced risk of heart disease and stroke, less artery inflammation and lower cholesterol.

It helps with:

Constipation

Hunger

The fiber lowers blood sugar by slowing digestion

Immune function

Fungal infections

Stir a tablespoon of flaxseeds into your oatmeal, smoothie, yogurt, soup, juice, or any sauce.

You are welcome!

Hypertension Guidelines

#Hypertension Guidelines: 

A very common question I get during consults is: What is the magic number for blood pressure? 
Most people still think it is 120/80. The answer is individualized. It will depend on age and comorbid conditions. There is more than one guideline, I evaluate each case and recommend the Joint National Comitee or American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines. 

Here is one of the differences: High blood pressure should be treated earlier with lifestyle changes and in some patients with medication at 130/80 mm Hg rather than 140/90 based on new ACC and American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines for the detection, prevention, management and treatment of high blood pressure.

Una pregunta muy común que recibo durante las consultas es: ¿Cuál es el número mágico para la presión arterial?
La mayoría de la gente todavía piensa que es 120/80. La respuesta es individualizada. Dependerá de la edad y las condiciones comórbidas. Hay más de una guía, evalúo cada caso y recomiendo las guías del “Joint National Committee o American College of Cardiology / American Heart Association”.

Esta es una de las diferencias: la presión arterial alta debe tratarse antes con cambios en el estilo de vida y en algunos pacientes con medicamentos cuando tienen 130/80 mm Hg en lugar de 140/90, según las nuevas guías de ACC y American Heart Association (AHA) para la detección , prevención, manejo y tratamiento de la presión arterial alta.
