For the past year I have been investing in myself and making minute changes that have a profound effect on my well being. I am not a technological guru but I have watched a progression of positive influences in my health through the assistance of our local higi stations. You may not recognize the term but this is what they look like with a breakdown of what they comprise and what they do.
I look at as a mini-checkup machine that handles the basics for you and keeps track of where you've been and where you're heading health-wise. It reads your weight, pulse, blood pressure and body mass (BMI).
In Florida we have higi stations in almost all of our Publix Markets and they're also in Alabama, Georgia, North and South Carolina and in Tennessee too. There's a higi station at my disposal just about anywhere I go.
Once you set up your FREE account your results will be emailed to you every time you sit down and take your tests. There are over 9,000 higi stations across the U.S., a few in Canada and there are even some in Alaska. Here's the locator map just for you!
High blood pressure is what keeps me in this loop but only my nephrologist seems to find it high. For the life of me, literally, I would not have known or felt the symptoms of high blood pressure. This is generally because they go unnoticed by many Americans until it's too late. Diabetes and kidney problems are exacerbated by uncontrolled high blood pressure. They are like uninvited guests to your party, barely noticed until they start to get out of hand.
