High blood pressure may be a choice that has resulted from the Standard American Diet (SAD). Many people have abnormally high salt intake—ten times more than what our bodies were designed to handle. If you are living on processed foods and eating out frequently, you may be risking your health.
If you are unwilling to continue living with the Standard American Diet, hypnosis can help you to make lasting healthy lifestyle changes. You can learn hypnosis for health with Seattle Hypnosis with Roger Moore no matter where you may live.

High Blood Pressure May Be a Choice
For the first 90% of our evolution, we ate diets containing less than a quarter teaspoon of salt a day, because, for the first 90% of our evolution, we ate mostly plants. We went millions of years without salt shakers, and so our bodies evolved into salt conserving machines, which served us well, until we discovered salt could be used to preserve foods. Without refrigeration, this was a big boon to human civilization. Of course, this may have led to a general rise in blood pressure, but who cares if the alternative is starving to death since all your food rotted away? But where does that leave us now, when we no longer have to live off of pickles and jerky? We are genetically programmed to eat ten times less salt than we do now. Even many low-salt diets can be considered high-salt diets. That’s why it’s critical to understand what the concept of “normal” is when it comes to salt.
Having a “normal” salt intake can lead to a “normal” blood pressure, which can help us to die from all the “normal” causes, like heart attacks and strokes.
Forty years ago, it was acknowledged that the evidence is very good, if not conclusive, that a low enough reduction of salt in the diet would result in the prevention of essential hypertension—that rising of blood pressure as we age— and its disappearance as a major public health problem. It looks like we knew how to stop this four decades ago. In that time, how many people have died? Today, high blood pressure may wipe out 400,000 Americans every year; 1,000 unnecessary deaths a day.
