The Drug-Free Cure for Heart Disease and Diabetes (AMAZING!)
The older you get, the harder it can be to stay active.
And the current coronavirus pandemic isn’t helping matters.
With so many gyms, parks, and other recreational areas closed, you might have found yourself turning into a couch potato.
But there’s a simple technique you can do – from the comfort of your own home – to can lower your risk of heart disease and diabetes.
And you won’t even need to break a sweat.
A few weeks ago, I told you about a newly discovered danger of sitting too much: It can send your risk of cancer skyrocketing.
But you don’t have to be a gym rat or run marathons to get the benefits of more movement.
A recent study found that something much simpler can lower your risk of two other major killers: heart disease and diabetes.
Researchers assigned 39 healthy people to one of two groups: one that performed passive leg stretches five times a week for 12 weeks, and one that didn’t.
Passive stretching involves using an external force—such as another person or gravity—to help encourage a deeper stretch than you could get on your own (inactive stretching).
Those who stretched regularly experienced decreased stiffness.
That was the predictable part. But check this out…
Stretching also increased blood flow in the arteries in the lower leg and upper arm.
This could have a major impact on your risk for disease because all the major diseases—heart disease, stroke, and diabetes—are characterized by changes in blood flow because of an impaired vascular system.
These benefits were seen in people who were healthy from the get-go, so it remains to be seen if stretching would produce these kinds of improvements in people already suffering from a vascular disease.
But I guarantee you it won’t hurt to try!
Stretching—when done properly—can release tension, prevent injury, improve your posture, and increase your energy.
And as we’ve seen from this most recent study, it could stave off some of the biggest health threats of our time.
When it comes to staying healthy, I’m all about simplicity. And it doesn’t get any easier than this.
You can find simple stretches by searching for “passive stretches” on YouTube.com.
