One of the healthiest people I know exercises regularly, is a vegetarian, and maintains low salt intake. She does everything right, right?
Well, sure. But her blood pressure drops dramatically when she stands up.
This is a minor health problem, easily corrected, but still a problem.
It is interesting how our bodies work. The vast majority of Americans are nowhere near as healthy as she is, and yet, she still has a potentially dangerous condition.
Most people would be lucky to have her problem, however.
Life is about balance. That is what holistic and Eastern medicine have been teaching for a long time. Everything in moderation, including exercise.
Most of us, however, would do well to tip our exercise quotient more toward her direction.
So I need to exercise more like her. A lot more like her. And she needs to eat pizza, a little bit more like me.
