congestive heart failure

The lining of our arteries can become damaged due to our lifestyle and poor diet. The result is that Cholesterol can form a plaque that lines the arteries causing hardening and narrowing of our arteries.

When your arteries become narrower due to the plaque that has formed inside of them, the more blood your heart pumps the higher your blood pressure will go.

Many factors may contribute to high blood pressure:

  • Lifestyle
  • Stress
  • Smoking
  • Poor Diet
  • Being overweight or obese – Puts stress on the heart
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Too much salt in the diet - Processed foods contribute up to 75% of our sodium intake.
  • Too much alcohol consumption (more than 1 to 2 drinks per day)
  • Older age
  • Kidney disease
