NUTHERA® Rx Hypertension Meal Plan

According to Mayo Clinic, hypertension or high blood pressure is a common condition in which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease.

Blood pressure is determined both by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure.

You can have high blood pressure (hypertension) for years without any symptoms. Even without symptoms, damage to blood vessels and your heart continues and can be detected. Uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of serious health problems, including heart attack and stroke.

High blood pressure generally develops over many years, and it affects nearly everyone eventually. Fortunately, high blood pressure can be easily detected. And once you know you have high blood pressure, you can work with your doctor to control it.

High blood pressure has many risk factors, including:

  • Age. The risk of high blood pressure increases as you age. Until about age 64, high blood pressure is more common in men. Women are more likely to develop high blood pressure after age 65.
  • Race. High blood pressure is particularly common among people of African heritage, often developing at an earlier age than it does in whites. Serious complications, such as stroke, heart attack and kidney failure, also are more common in people of African heritage.
  • Family history. High blood pressure tends to run in families.
  • Being overweight or obese. The more you weigh the more blood you need to supply oxygen and nutrients to your tissues. As the volume of blood circulated through your blood vessels increases, so does the pressure on your artery walls.
  • Not being physically active. People who are inactive tend to have higher heart rates. The higher your heart rate, the harder your heart must work with each contraction and the stronger the force on your arteries. Lack of physical activity also increases the risk of being overweight.
  • Using tobacco. Not only does smoking or chewing tobacco immediately raise your blood pressure temporarily, but the chemicals in tobacco can damage the lining of your artery walls. This can cause your arteries to narrow and increase your risk of heart disease. Secondhand smoke also can increase your heart disease risk.
  • Too much salt (sodium) in your diet. Too much sodium in your diet can cause your body to retain fluid, which increases blood pressure.
  • Too little potassium in your diet. Potassium helps balance the amount of sodium in your cells. If you don't get enough potassium in your diet or retain enough potassium, you may accumulate too much sodium in your blood.
  • Drinking too much alcohol. Over time, heavy drinking can damage your heart. Having more than one drink a day for women and more than two drinks a day for men may affect your blood pressure.
  • If you drink alcohol, do so in moderation. For healthy adults, that means up to one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men. One drink equals 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor.
  • Stress. High levels of stress can lead to a temporary increase in blood pressure. If you try to relax by eating more, using tobacco or drinking alcohol, you may only increase problems with high blood pressure.
  • Certain chronic conditions. Certain chronic conditions also may increase your risk of high blood pressure, such as kidney disease, diabetes and sleep apnea.

A blood pressure reading, given in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg), has two numbers. The first, or upper, number measures the pressure in your arteries when your heart beats (systolic pressure). The second, or lower, number measures the pressure in your arteries between beats (diastolic pressure).

Blood pressure measurements fall into four general categories:

  • Normal blood pressure. Your blood pressure is normal if it's below 120/80 mm Hg.
  • Elevated blood pressure. Elevated blood pressure is a systolic pressure ranging from 120 to 129 mm Hg and a diastolic pressure below 80 mm Hg. Elevated blood pressure tends to get worse over time unless steps are taken to control blood pressure.
  • Stage 1 hypertension. Stage 1 hypertension is a systolic pressure ranging from 130 to 139 mm Hg or a diastolic pressure ranging from 80 to 89 mm Hg.
  • Stage 2 hypertension. More severe hypertension, stage 2 hypertension is a systolic pressure of 140 mm Hg or higher or a diastolic pressure of 90 mm Hg or higher.

Changing your lifestyle can go a long way toward controlling high blood pressure. Your doctor may recommend you make lifestyle changes including:

When you eat too much salt, which contains sodium, your body holds extra water to "wash" the salt from your body. In some people, this may cause blood pressure to rise. The added water puts stress on your heart and blood vessels.

To lessen the sodium in your diet, refrain from consuming the following food.

  • Processed foods such as lunch meats, sausage, bacon, and ham.
  • Canned soups, bouillon, dried soup mixes.
  • Deli meats.
  • Condiments (catsup, soy sauce, salad dressings).
  • Frozen and boxed mixes for potatoes, rice, and pasta.
  • Snack foods (pretzels, popcorn, peanuts, chips).
  • Pickled or marinated food in brine. (Vinegar- and lemon juice-based marinades are ok.)

Avoiding foods high in added sugars, saturated fat & cholesterol, as well as beverages containing alcohol will also contribute to the improvement of any health condition.

With the Nuthera® Hypetension meal plan, no salt food is still top-notch delicious! Here are some strategies we use to make flavourful low salt dishes:

  • Using black pepper as seasoning instead of salt.
  • Adding fresh herbs and spices to vegetables and meat.
  • Making our own stock and gravy instead of using cubes or granules.
  • Looking out for reduced-salt products.
  • Baking or roasting vegetables to bring out their natural flavour.
  • Making sauces using ripe tomatoes and garlic.

Avoiding foods high in added sugars, saturated fat & cholesterol, as well as beverages containing alcohol will also contribute to the improvement of any health condition.

The Nuthera® Rx Meal Plan for Hypertension is based on the DASH Diet otherwise known as the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension.

The DASH diet aims to provide nutrients that can help reduce blood pressure. It is based on dietary patterns, rather than single nutrients. It also contains a high proportion of foods rich in antioxidants. These are thought to help prevent or delay the development of several chronic health problems, such as heart disease, stroke and cancer.

Reduce Blood Pressure

The DASH diet helps to lower blood pressure related to its composition of potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Each key nutrient plays a role in the lowering of blood pressure. Since the DASH diet innately limits salt and sodium intake, some individuals may see further reductions. Although sodium is needed for critical body functions, too much can cause fluid build-up. Additional fluid can put extra strain and pressure on the heart, thus increasing blood pressure.

Lowered Cholesterol

With the inclusion of whole grains, comes the natural addition of fiber. Whole wheat products, brown rice, and oats are excellent fiber sources. Adequate fiber has been shown to reduce cholesterol levels. Men should aim for 38 grams per day while women should obtain 25 grams per day. Interestingly enough, new research found the addition of higher fat dairy products actually reduced triglyceride and "bad" cholesterol levels in comparison to individuals consuming the standard low-fat DASH plan. Additionally, blood pressure levels were reduced similarly following both diet plans. The compelling new findings offer DASH with additional flexibility.

Weight Loss

Weight loss comes with a calorie deficit. Although the DASH diet does not stress calorie reduction, filling the diet with nutrient-dense foods rather than calorie-rich foods can shed off pounds in a sustaining manner. Diets rich in fiber have also been shown to contribute to weight loss.

Again, the DASH diet is a well-balanced diet filled with nutrients, an important key in the optimization of health. It provides success and sustainability due to its flexibility and its semi-unrestrictive nature. Even if blood pressure levels are normal and healthy, the DASH diet is worth embracing. Reducing processed fats and sweets with rising amounts of fruits, veggies, and low-fat dairy products can ultimately provide the body with abundant nutrients without feeling deprived or hungry.

In prehypertension, the systolic (top number) reading is 120 mmHg-139 mmHg, or the diastolic (bottom number) reading is 80 mmHg-89 mmHg.

Prehypertension is a warning sign that you may get high blood pressure in the future. High blood pressure increases your risk of heart attack, stroke, coronary heart disease, heart failure, and kidney failure. There's no cure for high blood pressure, but while in the prehypertensive stage, you have a chance to reverse it.

This is the best time to subscribe to the Nuthera® Rx Meal Plan for Hypertension as there is still a chance to prevent it from transitioning into a full-blown hypertension

Subscribing to the NUTHERA® Rx Hypertensive Meal Plan is highly recommended as untreated or uncontrolled blood pressure can cause problems for you and your baby.

What to book?

  • If you are on your 1st or 2nd Trimester, book the 1500-1700 calorie meal plan.
  • If you are on your 3rd Trimester, book the 1800-2000 calorie meal plan.

There are several possible causes of high blood pressure during pregnancy which includes:

  • being overweight or obese
  • not getting enough physical activity
  • smoking
  • drinking alcohol
  • first-time pregnancy
  • a family history of pregnancy-related hypertension
  • carrying more than one child
  • age (over 35)
  • assistive reproductive technology (such as in vitro fertilization)
  • having diabetes or certain autoimmune diseases

Women with gestational hypertension have high blood pressure that develops after 20 weeks of pregnancy. There is no excess protein in the urine or other signs of organ damage. Some women with gestational hypertension eventually develop preeclampsia which can cause serious damage to your organs, including your brain and kidneys.

When we eat, carbohydrates in our food are broken down to glucose, the main fuel for all metabolic processes of the body. In healthy individuals, the hormone insulin is well-regulated to allow glucose to enter the cells, powering millions of chemical reactions that keep us thriving.

With diabetes, there is faulty metabolism of glucose in the body, due to the lack of insulin or lack of sensitivity to it, resulting to increased levels of blood sugar and a domino effect of adverse health outcomes.

There are 2 types of diabetes:

Type 1 diabetes occurs when your immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas. This is usually diagnosed in young people, hence it is also referred to as juvenile diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is developed over time due to the combination of genetic and lifestyle factors such as excessive eating and lack of physical activity that cause the receptors of insulin to lose their sensitivity so that even if insulin is available, glucose is still unable to enter the cell.

The observable symptoms of diabetes include polyuria, polydipsia and polyphagia.

Patients are considered diabetic if they get the following numbers from diagnostic tests:

  • a random venous plasma glucose concentration ≥ 11.1 mmol/l or
  • a fasting plasma glucose concentration ≥ 7.0 mmol/l (whole blood ≥ 6.1 mmol/l) or
  • two hour plasma glucose concentration ≥ 11.1 mmol/l two hours after 75g anhydrous glucose in an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT).

According to Mayo Clinic, the following risk factors increase your risk for diabetes:

  • Weight. The more fatty tissue you have, the more resistant your cells become to insulin.
  • Inactivity. The less active you are, the greater your risk. Physical activity helps you control your weight, uses up glucose as energy and makes your cells more sensitive to insulin.
  • Family history. Your risk increases if a parent or sibling has type 2 diabetes.
  • Race. Although it's unclear why, people of certain races — including black people, Hispanics, American Indians and Asian-Americans — are at higher risk.
  • Age. Your risk increases as you get older. This may be because you tend to exercise less, lose muscle mass and gain weight as you age. But type 2 diabetes is also increasing among children, adolescents and younger adults.
  • Gestational diabetes. If you developed gestational diabetes when you were pregnant, your risk of developing prediabetes and type 2 diabetes later increases. If you gave birth to a baby weighing more than 9 pounds (4 kilograms), you're also at risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome. For women, having polycystic ovary syndrome — a common condition characterized by irregular menstrual periods, excess hair growth and obesity — increases the risk of diabetes.
  • High blood pressure. Having blood pressure over 140/90 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) is linked to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.
  • Abnormal cholesterol and triglyceride levels. If you have low levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or "good," cholesterol, your risk of type 2 diabetes is higher. Triglycerides are another type of fat carried in the blood. People with high levels of triglycerides have an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. Your doctor can let you know what your cholesterol and triglyceride levels are.

The following are the top three recommended lifestyle interventions for managing diabetes:

  • Eat healthy foods. Choose foods lower in fat and calories and higher in fiber. Focus on fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Strive for variety to prevent boredom.
  • Get more physical activity. Aim for 30 minutes of moderate physical activity a day. Take a brisk daily walk. Ride your bike. Swim laps. If you can't fit in a long workout, break it up into smaller sessions spread throughout the day.
  • Lose excess pounds. If you're overweight, losing even 7 percent of your body weight — for example, 14 pounds (6.4 kilograms) if you weigh 200 pounds (90.7 kilograms) — can reduce the risk of diabetes.

Notes:

  • Don't try to lose weight during pregnancy. Talk to your doctor about how much weight is healthy for you to gain during pregnancy.
  • To keep your weight in a healthy range, focus on permanent changes to your eating and exercise habits. Motivate yourself by remembering the benefits of losing weight, such as a healthier heart, more energy, and improved self-esteem.

Among the macronutrients, carbohydrates have the greatest effect on your blood sugar because they are broken down into sugar, or glucose, and absorbed into your bloodstream.

Processed carbohydrates are those carbs which are broken down to their simplest forms, starch and sugar. These are easily absorbed into the body, abruptly raising blood glucose levels.

Examples of these food are sugary beverages, white bread, regular pasta, polished rice, sweetened breakfast cereals, dried fruit, syrups, packaged snack food, fruit juice, and french fries.

Figuring out what to cook for dinner can be a hassle, especially if you’re trying to manage your blood sugar and keep type 2 diabetes under control. Indeed, counting carbs can often be a full-time job in and of itself.

Processed carbohydrates are those carbs which are broken down to their simplest forms, starch and sugar. These are easily absorbed into the body, abruptly raising blood glucose levels.

The NUTHERA® Rx Diabetes Meal Plan focus on high-fiber ingredients and lower sugar and salt to help people with diabetes with managing their blood sugar. All of the meals served under NUTHERA® Rx Diabetes Meal Plan are under 700 calories and have at least 15 g of protein. Less than 10 percent of each meal’s calories are from added sugar, and each meal contains between 20 and 100 g of carbohydrates per serving. Saturated fat consists of less than 10 percent of total calories, and meals contain no more than 700 mg of sodium

People with diabetes should eat 4-5 small meals during the day instead of three larger meals, says the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Everyone needs to eat about every four to six hours during the day to keep energy levels up but people with type 2 diabetes usually have better blood glucose control if their meals and carbohydrates are spaced evenly throughout the day.

Medical nutrition therapy is meant to complement and not replace the medical intervention provided by doctors in the form of maintenance medicines and other medical procedures. NUTHERA® Rx is meant to care for you, the patient, outside the hospital setting to foster discipline and increased awareness for a healthier way of life.

NUTHERA® highly values working with allied health professionals hence though significant improvement with medical prognosis is expected within 2-3 months of subscription to the NUTHERA® Rx Diabetes Meal Plan, you must still consult with your physician regarding any adjustment with your medications, as well as future steps for managing your condition.

Intermittent Fasting is discouraged for people with diabetes as it is recommended that they eat 4-5 small evenly spaced meals during the day instead of 2-3 larger meals. Failure to follow this might put a diabetic person at risk for hypoglycemia or very low blood sugar levels that may cause clumsiness, speech troubles, confusion, loss of consciousness, seizures or death.

People with diabetes are more likely to develop multiple risk factors for heart disease, stroke, and cancer; The risk factors include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity and a sedentary lifestyle.

For diabetes, a healthy diet may just be the best medicine. In fact, a diabetes diet can go beyond helping you achieve blood sugar control. Since it is designed to provide properly controlled portions of whole foods rich in fiber and antioxidants, it can greatly lower your risk for other serious health conditions and can potentially prevent the development of further health complications.

Additional information:

  • Diabetes significantly increases your risk for heart disease and stroke — creating up to a four times greater risk than for someone without diabetes. In fact, heart disease and stroke are the cause of death for at least 65 percent of people with diabetes, according to the American Heart Association.
  • According to the Japanese Cancer Association, diabetes, particularly type 2 diabetes, significantly increases the risk for liver, colorectal, biliary tract, pancreatic, stomach, bladder, breast, and endometrial cancers, though not prostate cancer. Though the exact relationship between cancer and diabetes is still not understood, researchers have are looking at the theory that insulin may encourage tumor growth.

The Paleo lifestyle adheres to consume an all-natural Paleo diet for both men and women, so you're ensured your nutrition requirements are met. It prescribes a pattern of eating that mirrors the way your ancestors ate back (way back!) in the day. It is all about choosing quality foods, saying NO to GMO, food additives and chemicals. It brings us back to a pre-civilization, hunter-gatherer diet of meat, fish, fruits and vegetables.

That means all gains from the agrarian revolution -- grains, dairy, legumes, salt and sugars are off the menu.

For more information about the do’s and dont’s of the Paleo lifestyle, you may view an instructional video below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoQICONAQAU&feature=youtu.be

At first, it can feel like there are restrictions especially for someone whose daily nutrition depends on fast food, canned goods and processed goods, but as they get more familiar on the principles and actually feel the benefits of the Paleo diet in their system, they’re going to be the very ones who’ll clean out their pantry of unhealthy foods. Challenge accepted.

You'll see that the benefits outweigh the intricacies of the program. Once you allow your body to get the nutrients it truly deserves, you’ll notice the big difference in yourself. You will realize that you can still enjoy eating out, enjoying desserts, and even enjoy buffets - it's all about the food choices you make.

Common Paleo approved foods

Aside from being All-Natural, Paleo Diet is also Gluten-free diet.

A gluten-free diet is diet that excludes the protein gluten which is found in some grains like wheat, rye and barley. Eating a gluten-free diet helps people with celiac disease control their signs and symptoms and prevent complications.

Gluten makes bread products chewy and gives them an elastic quality, so it is important to the making of baked goods like your favorite breads and doughnuts. There are some studies suggesting that gluten may have addictive properties making you crave for this products that contribute a lot on your weight gain.

The Ketogenic Diet is a low carbohydrate, moderate protein, high fat diet that involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and an increase on the good fat intake of an individual. It aims to put the body in theketosis state – a metabolic state of using ketones (fatty acids) as sources of energy vs the usual glucose as a source of energy.

The Paleo-Ketogenic Diet is almost the same as the usual Ketogenic Diet except that it follows the Paleo Diet Template: Dairy / Soy / Gluten / Grain / GMO Free – the usual items causing inflammation to our bodies.

NOTE: You may also refer to our instructional video below.
