Blood Pressure Readings...Safe and Natural Control Of Stress

The Cruel Stages Of Hypertension
Your blood pressure is one of the principal vital signs. For those of you being monitored, diastolic blood pressure, represented by the bottom number in a blood pressure reading, is when your heart is resting. Most doctors agree that in adults the normal blood pressure range should be 120 over 80 (120/80 mmHg). The higher reading 120 or systolic pressure, is the force of the blood against the artery walls as your heart beats. Depending on your physical condition and life choices, you may suffer from either high or low blood pressure. As defined in Wikipedia, blood pressure (BP) is the pressure (force per unit area) exerted by circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels. The pressure of the circulating blood decreases as it moves away from the heart through arteries and capillaries, and toward the heart through veins. The name given to high and low blood pressure is Hypertension and Hypotension, respectively.
Hypertension, perhaps the most well known of the two, comes in three stages according to WebMD.
"Prehypertension" is systolic pressure of 120-139 or diastolic pressure of 80-89 mmHg
Stage 1 Hypertension is blood pressure greater than systolic pressure of 140-159 or diastolic pressure of 90-99 mmHg or greater.
Stage 2 Hypertension is systolic pressure of 160 or greater or diastolic pressure of 100 or greater.
If you are looking at this or any other literature for help, concerning whether or not you have high blood pressure, you are terribly misguided. Only a health care professional can diagnose hypertension. Although high blood pressure in and of itself, doesn’t show symptoms that can be felt, if extremely high it can lead to migraine headaches, chest pain, and even heart failure. If you have close relatives or you fall into a risk factor, you should always make sure you are checked out on a regular basis.
What Can Cause It What’s The Potential For Health Problems?
Cause, what cause? While a variety of conditions arise because of high blood pressure, for the most part, the cause of hypertension remains unclear. What we do know is that there are risk factor groups associated with these conditions such as, overweight, poor diet, insomnia, older age, and of course getting little or no exercise.
There are many serious and potentially serious health problems that are associated with high blood pressure. The most common are:
Atherosclerosis: a disease of the arteries caused by a buildup of plaque, or fatty material, on the inside walls of the blood vessels. Hypertension contributes to this buildup by putting added stress and force on the artery walls.
Heart Disease: heart failure (the heart can't adequately pump blood), ischemic heart disease (the heart tissue doesn't get enough blood), and hypertensive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart) are all associated with high blood pressure.
Kidney Disease: Hypertension can damage the blood vessels and filters in the kidneys, so that the kidneys cannot excrete waste properly.
Stroke: Hypertension can lead to stroke, by either contributing to the process of atherosclerosis (which can lead to blockages and/or clots), or by weakening the blood vessel wall and causing it to rupture.
Eye Disease: Hypertension can damage the very small blood vessels in the retina.
Your Lifestyle Might Be The Cause A Safe And Natural Way To Lower Readings
You can beat high blood pressure and reclaim your life with a totally relaxing and enjoyable process that takes just 15 minutes a day. My research brought me to an online solution that professes to safely lower your blood pressure, without the use of drugs. If you believe as I do that the pharmaceutical companies have gone too far, than this just might be what you’re looking for.
Don’t take my word for it because it was featured in the American Journal of Hypertension, June 2003. Doctors Prove 82% Of Even Resistant Hypertensives Can Achieve Lower Blood Pressure Through A Surprising New Discovery Hypertensives are people who were previously resistant to other forms of treatment. Does that sound familiar? Than you should look into this amazing treatment. If you can breathe, you can perform this exercise. You can control your blood pressure. Obviously, I can’t get into it in great detail, but I can say that this method was developed by medical doctors and has even won FDA approval. Please see for yourself at: My RecomMANNdations
