In recent years, rates of cardiovascular disease have been rising in younger people. This disease is no longer a health danger only for the middle-aged and the elderly. Unhealthy diets, unhealthy living habits, obesity, stress, overwork, lack of exercise, and hereditary tendencies are all playing roles in this concerning trend[1]. Cardiovascular disease has now become a primary health concern for all ages.

What Is Cardiovascular Disease (CVD)?

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) generally refers to heart and vascular-related diseases. In other words, any disease that affects the heart and vascular tissue can be categorized as cardiovascular disease. The World Health Organization (WHO) considers cardiovascular disease to be the leading cause of death globally. Even so, most cardiovascular diseases can be prevented through healthy diets, good work-life balance, regular exercise, and stress-relief activities[2].

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD), High Blood Pressure (Hypertension), High Blood Glucose (Hyperglycemia) and High Blood Cholesterol (Hyperlipidemia)

Cardiovascular disease patients often have high blood pressure (hypertension), high blood glucose (hyperglycemia) and high blood cholesterol (hyperlipidemia), which are the most critical factors for cardiovascular disease. These risk factors combined are called “Three Highs.” Professor Yuande Li is a well-known cardiac physician and former president of National Taiwan University Hospital. He conducted a long-term community survey, and the results indicate that “Three Highs” raises the risk of developing coronary heart disease. Therefore, getting away from “Three Highs” plays a vital role in preventing cardiovascular disease[3].

What Are The Risk Factors For Cardiovascular Disease (CVD)?

Unhealthy diets, work-life imbalance, negative emotions, conditions such as hypertension, and hereditary tendencies are all risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Today’s fast-paced lifestyle, high work pressure, lack of exercise, eating out, etc. are why almost everyone is at risk. Pay attention to the following lifestyle factors which strongly connect with cardiovascular disease[4]:

• Unhealthy diets: overconsumption of oil, salt and sugar.

• Bad habits: smoking, excessive drinking, staying up late, lack of exercise, obesity.

• Related conditions: people with hypertension, hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia are at high risk of cardiovascular disease. Gout and kidney disease also increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.

• Challenging emotions: depression, anxiety, stress.

• Family history.

How To Prevent Cardiovascular Disease (CVD)?

Prevention is better than treatment. After understanding the risk factors, we know that excellent self-care helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and its recurrence rate. Based on the above risk factors, here are four tips to help you prevent cardiovascular disease:


● Preventing Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) – Tip 1: Healthy Diet

To prevent cardiovascular disease, we can start by changing our eating habits. A healthy diet keeps cardiovascular disease away. A healthy diet should be “three less and one more,” less oil, salt and sugar but more fiber. Adopting this eating habit can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and promote physical and mental comfort.

Develop healthy eating habits, including: make unrefined whole grains your staple; reduce intake of refined starch and artificially sweetened drinks or drinks with a lot of sugar; eat more fresh fruit and avoid drinking too much fruit juice; use healthy cooking methods, such as steaming, boiling, cold and dressed with sauce, roasting, burning, stewing, bittern, etc. Cook using healthy vegetable oils and avoid lard, beef tallow, butter, and other animal oils. Eat fewer cakes and pastries, and less fast food; avoid salted, fried and barbecued food, as well as pig skin, chicken skin, duck skin, fish skin, etc.; consume fermented dairy products such as cheese and yogurt in moderation; reduce red meat intake; consume beans and nuts in moderation[5].

Preventing Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) – Tip 2: Develop a Healthy Lifestyle

A healthy diet, regular exercise, and avoiding smoking and alcohol are the best ways to prevent cardiovascular disease. According to WHO statistics, in 2016, the number of alcohol-related deaths worldwide exceeded three million, of which 19 percent were cardiovascular diseases [6]. Smoking is also one of the main risk factors for cardiovascular disease, including myocardial infarction, angina pectoris and stroke[7]. In addition, people with “Three Highs” should proactively adopt a healthy lifestyle, adjust their daily routines, regularly measure blood pressure and blood sugar, and get periodic health checkups.


● Preventing Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) – Tip 3: Control Your Emotions and Learn To Relax Through Meditation

“All diseases link to the heart, so to treat diseases one must treat the heart first.” People often develop diseases if they have lived under high pressure with negative emotions for a long time. Many medical studies also confirm that “diseases result from the heart,” and emotions can trigger diseases. According to these studies, life pressure increases the secretion of adrenaline, causing blood pressure to rise and heartrate to accelerate. It also activates platelets and makes platelets over-agglutinated to form blood clots, causing thrombosis and cardiovascular disease[8].

In 1972, study results from Harvard University showed that the meditation process could reduce blood pressure. The reason is straightforward: during meditation, the body and mind are calm as the blood flows slowly. Some countries have even introduced meditation into psychotherapy, using meditative practices to relieve people of negative emotions.

Grandmaster JinBodhi once said, “A quiet and peaceful heart is the cornerstone of health, and a quiet mind helps create emotional stability. When a person can control emotions, he will naturally overcome the pressure from family, feelings, life, work, and career.” The meditation process helps us become more peaceful and mentally purified. It is akin to a bucket of muddy water which is allowed to settle; the sediment falls to the bottom and the water becomes clear. Meditation makes our hearts more relaxed and confident. We will calm down, and the function of our organs will be smoother[9].


● Preventing Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) – Tip 4: Exercise Regularly

Regular exercise is a great way to prevent cardiovascular disease. According to the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), developing the habit of daily exercise can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. When exercise is combined with a healthy diet and weight control, the risk of cardiovascular disease can be further reduced[10].

To effectively prevent cardiovascular disease, appropriate fitness activities should be carried out every day to boost your body’s metabolism and enhance your immunity. It should be noted that the middle-aged and the elderly should do relatively mild exercises based on their physical conditions, such as light aerobics, walking, jogging, cycling, performing prostration, practicing Energy Bagua, and so on. Fitness sessions should not be excessive in duration. Your exercise routine should be tailored to your physical condition. In addition, the middle-aged and the elderly must avoid exercising during the coldest time of winter; exercise when the temperature rises to prevent chill-induced health issues.

Energy Bagua Is The Most Effective Way To Prevent Cardiovascular Disease (CVD)

Energy Bagua has gained popularity among people with cardiovascular disease. Thousands of people worldwide are living proof that Energy Bagua can help improve cardiovascular disease and “Three Highs.” Many Energy Bagua practitioners have said that after walking Energy Bagua for a period of time, their high blood sugar, blood pressure or cholesterol decreased significantly. Many people’s levels have even returned to normal through practicing Energy Bagua regularly. Energy Bagua helps people who have suffered from cardiovascular disease for years gain benefits quickly and recover their health.

Now, let’s read the experiences of some Energy Bagua practitioners.


High Blood Sugar | Joshua Rosen (United States)

I am Joshua Rosen from the United States. I’m a lawyer. After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2005, I relied on drugs to control my blood sugar. However, the drugs didn’t improve the disease, so my doctor gradually increased the dosage. My blood-sugar level still didn’t come down. After I attended my first Energy Bagua course in November 2015, my blood-sugar level came under control and no longer increased. Since then, I have kept walking Energy Bagua every day. Not only has my blood sugar been stable, but my weight dropped from 190 to 170 pounds. I feel relaxed and happy. Before I started practicing Energy Bagua, my work and the pressures of life often exhausted me. I had no extra strength to talk to my family after work. Through my practice of Energy Bagua, my energy and spirit are much better, and my mind is clearer. When I have problems at work, I can sort out the key tasks more quickly and complete them effectively. I also have enough energy to enjoy time with my family. I thank Grandmaster JinBodhi and Energy Bagua. I’ve promised myself that I will walk Energy Bagua every day of my life!

(Note: The effects of practicing Energy Bagua will vary from person to person.)



Diabetes and Hypertension | Yongping Wang (United States)

My name is Yongping Wang. I had diabetes and hypertension; both conditions run in my family. My blood-sugar level once peaked at 14.3 mmol/L. My blood pressure record is 159 mmHg/120 mmHg (Note: Adults with systolic blood pressure ≥ 140 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure ≥ 90 mmHg can be diagnosed with hypertension). Over the years, although I was cautious about my diet, my blood sugar had remained high. I often felt dizzy, and I had to refrain from bowing my head when picking up things because of my high blood pressure. Since I started walking Bagua in 2013, my body has been better day by day, and my blood-sugar level has dropped to about 6.3 mmol/L. I changed from relying on insulin to drugs, and then to being drug-free now. My blood pressure has also stabilized at about 119 mmHg/60 mmHg, and my body has gained a lot of benefits overall. That’s thanks to the magic tool: Energy Bagua, taught by Grandmaster JinBodhi. After seeing my health improvements, my husband Lei Xu also joined to experience the magic of Energy Bagua.

(Note: The effects of practicing Energy Bagua will vary from person to person.)



Hyperglycemia and High Blood Sugar | Lei Xu (United States)

My name is Lei Xu. I had suffered from hyperglycemia for nearly 20 years and had fatty liver disease for about 15 years. My fatty liver caused type 2 diabetes. My blood-sugar level once peaked at 8.8 mmol/L. I began to practice Energy Bagua in January 2015. In the beginning, I was still in a wait-and-see attitude, so I didn’t walk it every day. After walking Energy Bagua for a while, I had a health examination in August 2016, where I took two B-ultrasound tests. The results showed that my fatty liver was back to normal! In September 2017, I underwent another health checkup, and my blood-sugar level had dropped to 6.0 mmol/L (Note: When fasting, a blood-sugar level from 3.9 mmol/L to 6.1 mmol/L is normal). Also, I lost weight, dropping from 80 to 70 kilograms, and my waistline slimmed by nearly three inches. I feel very happy. Now I walk Energy Bagua with my wife every day.
