A note about Reasons for High Blood Pressure or Hypertension
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
It is a common misconception that high blood pressure is something that affects only those who are older or obese, but the reality is that while our blood pressure does increase a little with age, high blood pressure can happen to anyone regardless of their age, sex or size. And high blood pressure can lead to heart attacks, stroke or kidney failure.
From a technical perspective, the reasons for high blood pressure are mostly unknown. Hypertension with no apparent cause is referred to as primary hypertension, while high blood pressure that is a result of an underlying condition like kidney disease is called secondary hypertension. The majority of hypertension cases are primary in nature.
Even though the reasons for high blood pressure are not always known, there are many controllable factors that can play a role in elevating your blood pressure, putting you at risk of the conditions mentioned above. Some of these include:
Many people who have high blood pressure are often unaware of it. While high blood pressure can cause symptoms such as headaches, dizziness and shortness of breath, it is often asymptomatic, meaning that many people have no symptoms at all. Confirming hypertension requires visiting your health practitioner or local pharmacy for a series of blood pressure readings, usually five.
Knowing the reasons for high blood pressure can help you to manage it naturally before it gets too out of hand. By opting to live a healthier lifestyle that is more active and free of unnecessary toxins and chemicals, you can take charge of your health and ultimately your own destiny and get your blood pressure in check.
