What is arterial stiffness and how it affects your health?

As the years go by body composition of men and women suffer a significant loss of lean tissue. The prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors and metabolic syndrome increases dramatically with age until at least 60 years old. This is observed in developed countries and even more in developing countries. In addition, the metabolic syndrome is becoming a pandemic with major consequences on public health.

The influence of different metabolic and hemodynamic components of metabolic syndrome on arterial health has been evaluated in several clinical studies and it demonstrated a strong relationship between this and progression of arterial stiffness of the aorta and other large arteries. Faster arterial aging is related to the amount of components of Metabolic Syndrome. Además también se demostró que la presencia de la enfermedad de hígado graso no alcohólico asociada al Síndrome afecta la velocidad de onda de pulso considerada “regla de oro” en lo que respecta a rigidez arterial, indicator of mortality and cardiovascular events.

Some of the indicators to consider are:

  • abdominal obesity greater circumference 102 cm in men and 88 cm in women
  • Triglycerides worth at least 150 mg / dl or the presence of specific treatment
  • HDL cholesterol with a higher value 40 mg / dl in men and 50 mg/dl en mujeres o la presencia de tratamiento especifico
  • Blood pressure less than 130/85 or specific treatment
  • Higher fasting glucose 100 mg / dl or specific treatment

In conclusion, arterial changes are accentuated in the presence of metabolic syndrome and also increases as the person is older.

It is therefore essential to reach a healthy lifestyle and keep. Healthy eating, make adequate physical activity and effectively manage stress. This makes it possible to delay the symptoms of aging and promote a prosperous and healthy longevity.

Mindful Eating, a new way of eating

Mindful Eating, a new way of eating

It is one of the largest current obsessions. If we have a few extra kilos, that if we are swollen, if you get the summer in the way we want. Think with me: How many times have you tried to control your weight? How many diets you put into practice throughout your adult life? And how many did you get lasting results? If the answer is that you fight for your weight most of your life and you tried many treatments without real effects, Clearly something is not working as it should. So I chose to sit and talk with doctors and managers of the Posada del Qenti, Cordoba, recognized wellness specialist, to solve some doubts about.

At first, I was told that the weight problem is not only in what we eat or how much exercise we do, and even in our body. “The problem is that we seek out what we find in ourselves”, said Miguel Cané (h), Director of the institution. For real change to occur and forever, You must be born from our being aware, and not from what we do. What if, we all know what we should eat and how to balance food to be well, but the truth is that most of the time (if ever) we do not do it. And we know we have to do more physical exercise, but overall we fail to sustain it over time. We also know that we should drink two liters of water daily, But how many actually do? Many treatments tell us what we should do, and give us a range of indications like a master recipe. “But the failure is that they seek to impose something that often does not fit the individuality and the only being that is each”, illustrate from the inn.

What should then have a successful treatment? Above all, allow a broad approach to the problem of weight and food. Help to become aware of how the relationship with food is influenced by multiple factors such as personal history, the pace of life, the family, social circle, the emotions, etc.. A treatment to, then, tune with yourself and your values, with the true meaning of what is done and reason. Teach to eat not only nourishes the body, but also being, and allows accept ourselves as we are, cultivating well as self-esteem. “If you are looking for a lasting change, You must permeate the depths of being”, point from the institution.

And as mindfulness intention is to pay attention to the experience of the present moment without judgment, curiously, and acceptance opening, mindful eating is living a conscious eating. Namely, applying that quality of attention to the process of eating, all flavors, odors, thoughts and feelings that arise during the meal. A process that can lead to profound change that is required to reach a new habit of a natural, organic process. Treatment to all, which basically it requires room and enjoy the present moment.
