Blood Pressure & Your Heart

What is blood Pressure? 

DO you know your numbers? 

Knowledge is power?  … yeah we have heard that before. Often finding accurate and evidence-based information is hard. 

The online world is full of big opinions and often those that scream the loudest about things get the most attention.

As a clinical nutritionist I want to present the facts without all the BS for real people that want simple information.

One third of Australian adults have high blood pressure (33.7%), with almost 1.2 times as many males living with hypertension than females (36.2% compared to 31.3%).

Australian Bureau of Statistics 2018, National Health Survey 2017-18

** sometimes your doctor will measure your BP a few times if the reading is high or on separate occasions.

How will I know if my blood pressure is high?

Unfortunately, high blood pressure doesn’t give many warning signs. You may feel absolutely fine and when you go to your GP and they check your BP …. BAM oh you have high blood pressure.

What is the answer then?

Get regular checks even if you have no family history or risk factors! Ideally get a routine check every two years

What if I have risk factors or family history?

If your blood pressure is high-normal and you have other risk factors then it must be check more often. Every 6-12 months or upon your GPs advice.

 

How to measure your BP: sit down and relax first. Ideally, a clinician will use a machine called a sphygmomanometer with an inflatable cuff placed on the upper part of your arm. This will be reported as two number for example 120/80

I used to be an unhealthy party girl.

Most of you know me as a plant based foodie and fitness lover………and yes that is definitely who I am today and super proud of it. If you knew me in my early twenties I was not the picture of health.

Super Simple Stir Fry

This is a super simple meal that is perfect for those nights that you don’t have time but you want to ensure that you have a nutritious home cooked meal on the table in under 30mins.

Are you worried about your weight?

The truth is this…….. I am not here to talk about diets or even food for that matter. I am here to share with you the only weight I am really concerned about……..

Spaghetti & Mushroom Balls

I have managed to turn this family favourite into a nutritious plant based meal using mushrooms to replace meat.
Did you know that mushrooms are low in calories, fat-free, cholesterol-free, gluten-free, and very low in sodium, yet they provide nutrients such as selenium, potassium , riboflavin, niacin, vitamin D and more.

Why you’re not getting the results you want!

The season for floaty dresses and summer will be upon us soon (even though our hottest Autumn just finished), which means that most gals and guys are out there in the gym pumping weights and doing cardio to sculpt their figures and make themselves leaner. If you’ve...
