Natural Therapies for treating Hypertension - High Blood Pressure

Hypertension, commonly called High Blood Pressure seems to sneak up on us. Most people would be unaware of having High Blood pressure, unless they have been tested.
Signs and symptoms of early onset Hypertension are virtually none. Headaches, dizziness, blurred vision or shortness of breath are some symptoms attributed to Hypertension, but most of the time you would have found out about your problems before those symptoms manifest.

Hypertension has been with us forever, but it may have become worse.
Possible reasons are our hectic lifestyle, stress, fast food, and being overweight.
90–95% of Hypertension cases are categorised as "primary hypertension," which means high blood pressure with no obvious medical cause. This is an indication, that lifestyle may have caused your problem, and a "Lifestyle Change" may be able to get you down into a healthy range once again.


Medical treatment is a quick option, usually some form or combination of Blood pressure related drugs will quickly bring down your blood pressure to a normal level. However, it is not a cure, you are more or less condemned to stay on it for the rest of your life.

Definition

Hypertension is defined as an average or sustained systolic blood pressure (SBP) over 140 mmHg and/or a diastolic blood pressure (DBP) over 90 mmHg.

Systolic blood pressure is the blood pressure in vessels during a heart beat. (the higher reading)
Diastolic blood pressure is the pressure between heartbeats. (the lower reading )

Persons with hypertension are four times more likely to experience a major cardiovascular event (e.g., myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular accident, congestive heart failure) and high blood pressure is believed to contribute to 75% of all strokes and heart attacks. - Chronic Hypertension is attributed to a shorted life span.


Research suggests, that it is beneficial to keep blood pressure in it's normal range of systolic 115-120 - diastolic 70-80.

Secondary Hypertension (Non-Essential) is caused by conditions that affect the kidneys, arteries, heart or endocrine system.

Before you do anything else, make sure you get a proper diagnosis by a Medical Practitioner.
