10 Tips To Help You Control Your High Blood Pressure


VIDEO: Taking blood pressure in both arms could help detect cardiovascular disease.1. Make sure your blood pressure is under 140/90 mm Hg. If your systolic pressure (the top number) is over 140, ask your doctor what you can do to lower it. 
2. Take your high blood pressure medicine, if prescribed, every day. If you have questions, talk to your doctor. 
3. Aim for a healthy weight. If you are overweight or obese, carrying this extra weight increases your risk of high blood pressure. One way to determine if you need to lose weight is to find out your body mass index or BMI. If your BMI is above the healthy range (i.e., 25 or greater), or if your waist measurement is greater than 35 inches (women) or 40 inches (men) you probably have excess abdominal weight and you may benefit from weight loss especially if you have other risk factors. Talk to your doctor to see if you are at increased risk for high blood pressure and need to lose weight. 
4. Increase your physical activity. Do at least 30 minutes of moderate activity, such as walking, most days of the week. You can do 30 minutes in three 10-minute segments.
5. Choose foods low in salt and sodium. Most Americans should consume no more than 2.4 grams (2,400 milligrams) of sodium a day. That equals 6 grams, about one teaspoon of table salt a day. For someone with high blood pressure, the doctor may advise less.
6. Read nutrition labels. Almost all packaged foods contain sodium. Every time you prepare or eat a packaged food, know how much sodium is in one serving.
7. Keep a sodium diary. You may be surprised at how much sodium you consume each day and the diary will help you decide which foods to decrease or eliminate.
8. Use spices and herbs instead of salt to season the food you prepare at home.
9. Eat more fruits, vegetables, grains, and low-fat dairy foods.
10. If you consume alcohol at all, consume moderate amount or restrict.

EXPLICIT PICTURES: (18+) Raped Woman Found Dead With Sugar Cane Forced Into Her

29 year old Vanusia Silva Pereira was a druggie and druggies don’t tend to live very long in Brazil. Brazilian drug dealers don’t care if you’re young or old, man or woman – if you owe them money and don’t pay up in time, or if you try to traffic on their turf, they’re gonna kill you. Although by the looks of it, if it’s a woman they’re gonna kill, they may as well have a little raping session with her first. She’s dead meat anyway, putting that snatch to good use for the last time kind of makes sense. I’m sure it did to them. The horrific crime happened in Arataca, state of Bahia, Brazil. Vanusia Silva Pereira was taken to a vacant lot, punched in the face, raped and then had a sugar cane forced up her snatch. The victim’s father, identified as Mr. Wilson, an agricultural laborer told police that Vanusia chose bad company to hang out with lately and that was her demise. Police do not suspect that her murder was a crime of passion, however coroner who examined the body said the woman ha…

How My Daughter Seduced Me To Have Sex With Her – John Awah

“I became attracted to my daughter, when I saw her. And I told her I wanted to show her true love… Actually, she was the person that started it by always changing her cloths in front of me and this attracted me” – Says John Awah, who claimed that the multiple rounds of sex he had with his daughter was ‘consensual’

It sounds bizarre, untrue, and squeamish, but it’s the whole truth. Yes, it actually took place in Nigeria, Lagos, a city where everything seems possible.

When Chinyere, 18, decided to leave her mother in Abia State and pay her father, John Awah, a visit in Lagos, she must have been longing for a tender loving care, which fathers give their children.

But she surely did not bargain for what she eventually ended up with – steamy sex sessions with her father.

Upon her arrival, her father was shocked to his bone marrow that his daughter who left him when she was a year old, had suddenly grown to a full girl, and he suddenly fell in love with her.

Awah said: “I became attracted to my …
