High Resting Heart Rate and Blood Pressure Linked to Later Mental Health Disorders

A new study is showing that a high resting heart rate and blood pressure in youth predict an increased susceptibility for anxiety disorders, schizophrenia and obsessive-compulsive disorder later in life, according to a news release from the University of Helsinki (Finland).

The results indicate that men whose resting heart rate was higher than 82 beats per minute during their youth were 69 percent more likely to later be diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder than men whose resting heart rate was lower than 62 bpm, the news release said. The risk for schizophrenia increased by 21 percent and for anxiety disorders, 18 percent. This highlights the growing problem of mental health disorders around the world, especially with children.

Statistics show that as many as 1 in 5 children between the ages of 3 and 17 suffer some form of mental disorder, loosely defined as “serious changes in the ways children handle their emotions, learn, or behave.” While there are a number of speculative reasons for the cause, some of the most prevalent explanations include toxic exposures to substances such as aluminum, mercury and lead, as well as electromagnetic fields, poor gut health, vitamin D deficiency and hidden infections such as Lyme Disease.

Clearly, the toxic overload now rampant in our children is in part due to the toxic burden of the mother (and perhaps the father as well). So, ideally, you really want to start considering and addressing the contributing factors listed above BEFORE you get pregnant.

Check your home and especially your sleeping quarters for EMFs, for example. Clean up your diet and complete a detox protocol if deemed necessary.
