Like a lot of people, I have high blood pressure. Fortunately, we think it was diagnosed early enough to prevent major organ damage, but this isn’t always true. I’m very lucky in this aspect. Stage one high blood pressure begins at 140/99. Mine at diagnosis was 178/123.

Razones

Hay muchas razones por las que su presión arterial puede ser alta. Descubrirlas y mitigarlas forma parte de la lucha por reducirla y, a menudo, es posible que necesites medicación para reducirla hasta que seas capaz de mitigarlas. Puede que se sorprenda de algunas de ellas.

Cafeína

Here’s an experiment for you to try. Take your blood pressure before you have any caffeine and take it after swallowing some. You may be surprised by the results. This allegedly safe stimulant can pack a punch in raising BP. If you believe you are safe because you only drink decaffeinated coffee, think again. They’ve taken out half of the caffeine, but the other half is still there and still powerful.

Herencia

If one or both of your parents have it, you will likely develop it. It’s one of those few things you can not change when attempting prevent or get over the issue. However, the information is important when you would like to avoid organ damage. Have yours taken each time you see your physician. You might also need to invest in a barbell set of your own for home monitoring.

Lesión/Enfermedad

The body’s response to the kind of threat might have a increase in BP. This is partially because of “fight or flight” reactions. However, if the issue is due to whiplash or other neck issues, it might be a different issue. Some research shows that there’s a communication of sorts between portions of the neck and the area of the brain associated with involuntary muscle action.

Hierbas y medicamentos

Algunos medicamentos y hierbas pueden causar este problema y/o empeorarlo. Los medicamentos para perder peso, los analgésicos AINE y los fármacos para la tos y el resfriado ocupan un lugar destacado en la lista de infractores. Regaliz and rosemary may also be culprits. It’s very important to read the warning labels on drugs to be able to learn if they’re inclined to be a threat.

Obesidad

If you’re overweight whatsoever, your pressure will be higher. If you’re obese, it’ll be even worse. The more weight you lose, the greater your numbers will be.

Estrés

¿Quién no está estresado hoy en día? El mercado, los esfuerzos de la guerra, las tensiones del trabajo y varias otras cosas pueden causar definitivamente un problema en su vida. La presión arterial alta es sólo una de ellas.

¿Qué hacer?

Now that you might have the ability to determine how a lot of these offenders are working on your life, it is time to discover a solution. Some of it’s simple but not simple. Here are a few hints:

Reducir la cafeína

Really, it is significant in more ways than just your BP numbers. It’s hard on your heart and your mind. If you drink a whole lot of it, back of gradually or you’ll have an enormous headache brought on by the withdrawal. Once you’ve stopped the addiction, you will be amazed at how much better you feel and how it’s so much easier to fall asleep at night.

Perder peso

It’s one of those simple but not simple answers. There are a whole lot of methods to do it and do it safely. You’ll have to educate yourself about carbs, diet and workout plans. If I can do it, I know you can.

Estrés de combate

Identifica las causas del estrés y trabaja en torno a ellas. Es posible que no puedas eliminarlas, ya que pueden ser personas que conoces y quieres. Sin embargo, hay formas de evitarlas. Si hay cosas que te estresan y que puedes eliminar, hazlo.

Aromaterapia

Hay muchos métodos que utilizo para ayudar a reducir los niveles de estrés. Uno de ellos es la aromaterapia. El nervio olfativo es un atajo directo a la mente, y creo firmemente que algunos aromas pueden tener un enorme efecto sobre nosotros. Para la ansiedad, uso aceites esenciales de lavanda o manzanilla.

Té de hierbas

While you’re enjoying these scents, you might want a cup of herbal tea. I would recommend chamomile, jasmine, lavender or passionflower for this function. All of these have relaxing properties. Do be aware that they might make you drowsy.

Imágenes

If you are not at home or can not use the above suggestions, I also have discovered that imaging can be useful. You’ll want to select a passage that’s peaceful to you. I use Psalm 23. I see myself in the green pasture, I hear the still water and I smell the fantastic food on the table. I am aware that the Shepherd is there to guard me. I’ve dropped my BP over twenty points in ten minutes doing so.

Conclusión

La presión arterial alta es en gran medida silenciosa, pero no tiene por qué matarle. Trabaje con su médico y con un profesional cualificado en hierbas o en naturopatía para establecer un plan que le permita controlar sus cifras.
