This new diet is particularly easy for people in the UK to adopt as the ingredients are readily available.
(PRWEB UK) 3 June 2013
The Hypnotension programme recommends that people with high blood pressure should adopt the ‘Mediterranean diet’ known as the DASH diet. It is one of the leading eating plans for health for the past 20 years. However, the research shows that the "Nordic diet" could be significantly healthier.
It is particularly exciting for people in the UK with high blood pressure as the British climate is more suited to producing the kinds of foods found in Scandinavia than it is to growing the sun-ripened foods of the Mediterranean.
Research has shown that eating Nordic cuisine, such as berries, fish and game, can lower cholesterol and may help to reduce the risk of heart disease.
Hypnotension is looking into this recent research and may adopt the new "Nordic diet" into their programme; eating Scandinavian food could now provide an alternative to Mediterranean food for those looking for a healthier option for the heart.
The Mediterranean diet, with high levels of olive oil, fish and sun-ripened vegetables, has long been considered to be the ideal eating plan, as people who stick to it tend to have lower incidence of heart disease.
However, the new findings have been welcomed by Hypnotension as Nordic foods grow more readily in colder northern latitudes like the UK.
The new research by Professor Matti Uusitupa, from the Institute of Public Health and Clinical Nutrition at the University of Eastern Finland, will now help to heighten the growing competition between the Mediterranean and Nordic culinary worlds.
He said: “The Mediterranean diet, representing the diet traditionally eaten in Southern Europe, has long been related to improved health and prevention of cardiovascular disease that high blood pressure causes.
Paul Howard, co-creator of the Hypnotension programme, said “We have always recommended the ‘Mediterranean diet’ as studies have shown the beneficial effects for the heart but in light of this research we may have to review that advice. This new diet is particularly easy for people in the UK to adopt as the ingredients are readily available. Both these diets have many things in common, in particular, eating fresh natural products that are low in processed sugars.”
A Hypnotension practitioner is trained to identify and take steps to help the blood pressure client make those changes necessary to bring their blood pressure back to the normal range as quickly as possible.
The Hypnotension™ programme looks at a variety of lifestyle factors to establish which is likely to be causing or maintaining high blood pressure (hypertension). These lifestyle factors are then targeted using specific cognitive and hypnotherapeutic techniques to help reduce the client’s blood pressure towards more normal levels.
Certified Hypnotension practitioners are all fully qualified and insured hypnotherapy or NLP professionals, who meet the occupational standards for their country. The Hypnotension programme is a hypnotherapy cpd course recognised by leading Hypnotherapy Professional Associations worldwide.
There is a network of specially trained Hypnotension practitioners all over the country who can help people make the lifestyle changes which could help save their life.
