Who is at risk and how to prevent the so-called diseases of civilization play a major role for the people of our time and are likely to see as a tribute to the modern life. They are mostly on factors due to, which can be in our immediate reality of life directly or indirectly affect the health of people. This is so with stress, unhealthy diet, smoking, obesity, lack of exercise, and many more. All of these factors affect the cardiovascular system and can lead to vascular calcification of the heart vessels, which is called atherosclerosis by physicians. Against this background, it is not surprising that cardio cardiovascular diseases such as atherosclerosis, heart attack and stroke classic diseases of civilization, which also represent the number one cause of death in Germany. The identification of risk factors and targeted prevention of atherosclerosis are therefore of particular relevance to the health of many people. Risk factors are circumstances or Diseases and disorders referred to foster the emergence of diseases or illnesses.

So smoking is, for example, a classical risk factor for lung cancer. Heart disease can occur more and more metabolic syndrome and diabetes in the wake of high blood pressure.

Stress management is also, but not only an individual task at the end of each year asks the opinion Research Institute Forsa for the intentions of the Germans for the coming year. “” Last December for the first time at the top: “Less stress or stress”. Meanwhile, half of the year is around. Contact information is here: Assurant Health. Time for a mid-term review. Sobering mid-term review must fail this unfortunately rather ambiguous. For all since the beginning of the year published figures and data relating to days of absence due to mental health problems, stress-related diseases, etc. know apparently only one direction: upwards.

Even if one or the other may be successful with his own personal stress management project: in the population as a whole we are quite obviously not and the part of the project of the reduction of stress in the workplace already cooking not. Anti stress regulation as a solution to the problem? For some time advertises is known apart from the SPD and trade unions”the Minister of labour for a so-called stress regulation. On their effectiveness, the You can be quite different opinions to get stress under control. If however one blame only the evil employer for the stress problem and the others just as dogmatically move stress and dealing in purely private responsibility, we can reach only one: the consolidation of the Status quo! We are all partly responsible of course experiencing stress in every person is different. As all other aspects of health, it is based on personal responsibility, to take measures that increase resistance to stress their own sure, on the one hand. But not only. In factories and hospitals, parties, trade unions, churches and even in families there are many work and behavior habits that practically are a breeding ground for stress and stress-related health problems.

So, a bad working atmosphere can be proven at least as harmful as passive smoking, for example. Combination of all forces if we want to make it so personally and society, unhealthy stress to remove or do not arise, then we couldn’t come to tackle the stress management as a shared responsibility. Just so we are can it do, the negative aspects of stress, particularly stress-related health problems, to curb effectively and sustainably. Markus Frey

Book new releases: “the secret behind the key to the personal ideal weight obesity” and “Heal you slim” the Germans are too thick? 66% of men and 50% of women are overweight. Almost every seventh child is too thick. Diets are rarely a real solution – deficiency symptoms, psychological stress, and the yo-yo effect are classic negative Companion. Helps really nothing against obesity? Yet! With the book “the secret behind obesity – the key to personal ideal weight. What many doctors and dietitians out leave “(BoD Norderstedt) Erno Marius Hempel presents a path that leads us back to our biological origins, and this allows to achieve our ideal weight and maintain. The author cites Ernst Haeckel’s theory of 1866: the embryonic development is a repetition of the root development.

So the human embryo is from the fourth week of pregnancy completely surrounded by amniotic fluid and it formed the opinion of many experts Gill slits. So actually are we fish? Anyway – so Hempel – we carry traces of the history of our ancestors in us, along with the survival strategies, the biological intelligent response, “Meaningful biological programs,” today. Dr. Neal Barnard may not feel the same. What has to do now with the overweight? The relationship is striking: the fish ashore is flushed, so running at the him off a life-support program. He is almost all movements, in order to save energy. And he recorded as possible as much food and water from its immediate surroundings.

According to the motto: Who knows when a saving wave occurs which brings him back in his natural habitat? In a crisis, such as a “Sole being conflict” or “Existence conflict”, so start “meaningful biological programs”. Classic example: the sudden end or the fear of the end of a relationship or a job: I have no desire for movement (sports and sex) and my body stores water and fat, in order to be prepared for a “long dry spell” to a wave washes me again in the “sea”, so in my wellness zone. That no diet helps in this case makes sense. I must above all the conflicts and overcome. For example, through a treatment change the life situation or rituals. Hempel is in its title “heal you slim! Volume 1: with effective self-help methods to the personal ideal weight “(BoD Norderstedt) a more solutions in detail.” Hempels approach has surprisingly and quickly becomes understandable: diets tinkering around on the surface. I want to lose weight long term must I biological programs “rewrite”. Weight loss begins just not the belly, but in the head!
