Bel Marra Health Reports on a New Study Revealing a Natural Remedy for Hypertension, Insomnia, and Aging

Toronto, ON (PRWEB) May 17, 2013

Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, reports a new study that reveals a natural way to reduce stress, anxiety, and high blood pressure, and remedy insomnia.

As Bel Marra Health reports in its article, ( close to 70 million Americans suffer from hypertension, the leading risk for heart attack and stroke. Another 70 million suffer from sleep disorders such as insomnia. Insomnia creates stress on the body, which can ultimately lead to a long list of health problems. Stress can also speed up the aging process. Today, there is even more evidence that suggests a natural remedy for hypertension, insomnia, and aging.

Stress has been linked to hypertension (commonly referred as high blood pressure), insomnia, depression, headaches or chronic pain. According to the Center for Disease Control, American medicine cabinets are fuller today than they have ever been; 50 percent of U.S citizens are taking some sort of prescription medication - increasingly for stress and anxiety. Science is proving that there is a natural remedy as a relaxation response.

A recently published PLOS One study has revealed that relaxation response can act as a natural remedy for hypertension, insomnia, aging and a whole host of medical problems. Relaxation response is a state of deep rest that alters the physical and emotional responses to stress.

The authors of the study analyzed people using relaxation methods for the first time, and those who were long-time users of relaxation techniques, such as yoga and meditation. Participants were guided through mediation sessions, over several weeks, using specific breathing exercises, mantra repetition, and meditations, while seeking to reduce intrusive thoughts. Blood samples, as well as other biological measures were also taken from participants.

The researched found that the relaxation response leads to changes in cells within the body. These cells impact energy metabolism, insulin levels and inflammation “pathways”. They concluded that relaxation can be a natural way to fight problems such as hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, and other chronic health issues.

Many other studies have tried to identify the link between stress levels and relaxation methods. Across the globe,     medical researchers have associated chronic stress, anxiety and even insomnia with the disruption of the body’s internal systems.

In 2008, University College London released the results of a study that showed chronically stressed workers had a 68 percent higher risk of developing heart disease. The study was extensive; one of the longest and largest running studies on stress that included 10, 000 civil servants. Many high-stress participants had higher-than-normal cortisol levels. Cortisol is an adrenal-cortex hormone that damages blood and heart vessels when there is an excess amount.

Everyone reacts and stressors differently depending on the situation. Mayo Clinic doctors suggest that both genetics and our environment are main factors in determining the way we deal with stress and anxiety. For instance, if a person was exposed to a lot of stress or trauma as a child, he or she may be more predisposed to stress at an older age.

This predisposition ultimately leads to a higher risk of health problems. Doctors at Bel Marra Health also support the idea that practicing relaxation is one of the best ways to manage and cope with daily stressors. Regular exercise, a healthy diet and plenty of sleep are also recommended.
