How I lowered my dad's blood pressure, without drugs or diets ►►http://drsam.co/yt/SeeItYourself ======================================= Top 10 Causes Of High Blood Pressure ======================================= 1. AGE Most people don’t realize that AGE is one of the BIGGEST factors for high blood pressure. I discuss this in my very important article, but what’s important to note is that after the age of 40, 33% of the population has high blood pressure and after the age of 60, over 71% of the population has hypertension! So, if you’re over the age of 40 and have high blood pressure, it may not be your fault. But it IS your responsibility to fix it right away and here is how I lowered my dad’s blood pressure naturally, in just 30 days. 2. GENETICS & FAMILY HISTORY Well, not much can be done here. This is in fact my own problem because I have a family history (on my dad’s side) of hypertension, heart attacks and especially strokes. You can read more about it, include my personal favorite solution that my dad, my family and I use to promote healthy blood pressure levels, naturally! 3. SMOKING Come on people, smoking has NO health benefits. STOP smoking! 4. ALCOHOL A little bit of alcohol is okay, especially if it’s organic red wine. But drinking every night will cause damage to your heart, arteries and liver. Alcohol is a toxic and it’s acidic, both being bad for your body. 5. BEING OVERWEIGHT Similar to smoking, being overweight has no health benefits. And the older you get, the harder it is to lose that unwanted fat. 6. SODIUM Salt has its benefits actually. Regular table salt or salt found in processed foods and packages is BAD for you. However, “natural” salts such as Himalayan rock or Celtic sea salt is GOOD for you and can actually help LOWER blood pressure. I’ll discuss this in a future article. 7. STRESS Well know stress is bad. However, you can’t get rid of it. What’s important is the MEANING you give to stressful situations. If you freak out, get negative and focus on the problem the entire time … you put your body under extra stress. The secret is to focus on the SOLUTION and to know that “this too shall pass” and worrying about the problem isn’t going to help anything… Especially our blood pressure or heart. 8. LACK OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY We sit too much these days. Just get outside and walk daily, even if it’s just for 15-20 minutes. It’ll do wonders for your physical AND mental health! 9. MEDICAL CONDITIONS This goes back to “genetics”. And if you know you have a genetic “problem”, which is making things worse, then you MUST make changes to your life-style because your body is more sensitive than the average person. This is a similar problem with my dad and why he had a stroke. 10. MEDICATION Ironically, many “heart” medications actually cause more heart PROBLEMS in the long run. They can increase your cholesterol, blood sugar or blood pressure levels. They can decrease blood flow and circulation. And they all cause extra stress on your liver and kidneys, which then cause more problems for your heart.

What Causes Hypertension [2018] High Blood Pressure Symptoms
 
13:20
What Causes Hypertension? I'm Dr. Frita. Did you know that high blood pressure is a leading cause of heart disease and heart failure, and the number two cause of kidney failure? __________ Subscribe so you’ll never miss my latest videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBve_ppCNE67fs3MsIocitg?sub_confirmation=1 Be sure to follow me on: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dr.frita/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Dr.Frita Twitter: https://twitter.com/DrFrita __________ Do you know why they call hypertension the silent killer? Blood pressure. Don't let it get high off your own supply. Today, I will give a general overview of hypertension or high blood pressure. I will discuss the definition of hypertension, which actually just changed in 2017 based on the recommendations of the American College of Cardiologist and the American Heart Association. I will also talk about the consequences of poorly controlled blood pressure. And I will talk about how to prevent hypertension by not letting your blood pressure get high off your own supply. Don't let it get high off your own supply. So what is hypertension or high blood pressure? Hypertension or high blood pressure is when you have an elevated pressure in the blood vessels. We measure blood pressure with two numbers. There is that top number, or the systolic blood pressure and the bottom number, or the diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure, that top number, measures the pressure in your blood vessels while the heart is contracting or squeezing. That bottom number, the diastolic blood pressure measures the pressure within your blood vessels while the heart is relaxed. Normal blood pressure is when the systolic blood pressure is less than 120, and when the diastolic blood pressure is less than 80. You have elevated blood pressure when the systolic blood pressure is between 120 and 129, and when the diastolic blood pressure is still less than 80. So yes, with the new definitions you have elevated blood pressure when your systolic blood pressure, that top number, is between 120 and 129. So now, what is the definition of hypertension? It's when the systolic blood pressure is 130 or greater, and when the diastolic blood pressure is 90 or greater. What are the consequences of poorly controlled blood pressure? Well, heart disease, heart failure, stroke. And again, poorly controlled hypertension can lead to kidney failure. Hypertension is the second most common cause of kidney failure in the United States. What are the symptoms of hypertension? Well sure, you can get headaches. Some people will even get shortness of breath. There are different symptoms that you can get with severe high blood pressure. But the most common symptom of hypertension is nothing. So you could be walking around here with dangerously elevated blood pressures with no symptoms whatsoever, and that's why they call hypertension the silent killer. What can you do to prevent high blood pressure? Well, you can prevent it by not letting your blood pressure get high off your own supply. Don't let your blood pressure get high off your own supply. What is your own supply? Your own supply refers to the foods and the habits you have, which may be putting you at risk for hypertension. For example, if you sat down at the breakfast table and had five slices of bacon this morning, and then you checked your blood pressure and found out that it was elevated. Well, your blood pressure might be high off your own supply of bacon. What are some other things you may be supplying to your blood pressure to make it high? Number one, salt, or sodium. Don't let your blood pressure get high off your own supply of salt. Now when I ask most of my patients if they have a low salt diet, they immediately respond, "Oh yes, Dr. Frita. I never add salt to my food. I don't even pick up the salt shaker. And they're usually very proud of themselves. But once I delve a little deeper into their diet history I find that most of them have high sodium diets. So now I've given you a general overview of hypertension. We talked about the definition of hypertension. What causes Hypertension. When that top number is 130 or greater, or when that bottom number is 90 or greater. We talked about the consequences of hypertension, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure. We also talked about the most common high blood pressure symptoms. Nothing. We talked about how to prevent high blood pressure by not letting your blood pressure get high off your own supply. I want you to please comment down below. Please like my video. Share my video. And let me know whatever else you want me to discuss. I love hearing from you. Remember, prioritize yourself. Go to your doctor. Find out if you have high blood pressure, or if you're at risk. Strive to be a healthier, happier you. I'm Dr. Frita.

💓 #1 Cause Of High Blood Pressure - Shocking Facts!

How I Lowered My Dad’s Blood Pressure In Just A Few days - NO Drugs or Diets: 👉 http://drsam.co/yt/HBPFormula Or the best foods for loweing hypertension: 👉 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGnVNS63NdU Refferences: Sprint Research Group, Wright JT, Jr., Williamson JD, et al. A Randomized Trial of Intensive versus Standard Blood-Pressure Control. N Engl J Med. 2015;373(22):2103-16. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/products/databriefs/db289.htm https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/products/databriefs/db263.htm =============================================== 💓 #1 Cause Of High Blood Pressure - Shocking Facts! =============================================== I’ve talked a lot about high blood pressure in the past - causes and solutions. I’ve done this because hypertension is called the “silent killer” because there are no symptoms for it. And of course, high blood pressure can lead to a heart attack or stroke and it’s more of a problem in my opinion, than having “high” cholesterol. Additionally, going from a high blood pressure (over 140/90 mmHg) to normal levels (120/80 mmHG ), let alone to ideal blood pressure levels (115/75 mmHG) dramatically improves your life by1 38% lower risk of heart failure; 43% lower risk of cardiovascular death; 27% lower risk of mortality overall. However, today I’m going to reveal the #1 cause of high blood pressure and NO, it’s not your diet, lack of exercise or stress! It’s because of the negative changes in your hormones, due to AGING! First, take a look at the stats and chart from the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) of high blood pressure among adults2 over the age of 18 between 2015-2016 The first bar on the left that’s kinda black, shows the TOTAL number of people who have high blood pressure. Basically, it’s 30% of the population over the age of 18. That’s a lot. What’s worse is that this does NOT take into account PRE-hypertension numbers, which means even more people have “almost” high blood pressure and don’t even know it. The second, gray bar, shows the % from age 18-39. Men are 9.2% and women 5.6%. It’s not much, but the numbers are higher by 2% compared to 2013, just 2-3 years before and their even high in 2018.3 The third, green bar, shows the % for age 40-59. Men are at 37.2% and women 29.4%. This is a MASSIVE jump, up 420% for men and a whopping 525% for women!!! Why such a huge jump all of a sudden?... Because men’s testosterone starts to declined in his late 20’s and even more so in his 30’s. However, there’s a huge drop starting in his 40’s and it’s called “andropause”. And women, they start “menopause” in their 40’s as well, which causes massive negative changes in all their hormones - estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, adrenal and thyroid hormones Finally, the forth, lighter-green bar, shows the % for age 60 and over. Men are 58.5% and women 66.8%. Both age groups are significantly worse. But the women are much worse because the negative changes in hormones because of menopause is more dramatic than men’s “andropause” So What Does This Mean For You? Well, you’re probably thinking “great, there’s nothing I can do. I can’t turn back time, so I guess this is it?!!” No, this just means you have to be more proactive about monitoring and improving your blood pressure levels as you age, especially after the age of 40. Now, the best way to find solutions to problems, is to know the CAUSE of it. So what you need to do is make some simple lifestyle changes and utilize specific nutrients that a more “mature” body needs, because of the changes in hormones, ... so your body can help heal itself naturally, from within. This is the ONLY long-term, safe solution for improving your blood pressure and overall health… and I think you’d agree with this. In fact, this is why there are over 75 different blood pressure drugs with over a dozen different mechanism. This is also why most people with hypertension end up taking on average 2 drugs AT THE SAME TIME, to make improvements. Of course, if you have extremely high blood pressure, such as 180/120, then you MUST take a drug right away to lower it fast and get it under control immediately. YES, lifestyle matters because DIET - what you put in your body (food and liquids), EXERCISE - How much, how often and what kind. STRESS MANAGEMENT - emotional and physical SUPPLEMENTS - herbs, plant extracts, vitamins, minerals and amino acids ========================================­ Thank you for watching.

What are the Risks of Not Treating High Blood Pressure? -  Hypertension Effects Animation HT Dangers
 
00:27
If left untreated, hypertension can lead to the thickening of arterial walls causing its lumen, or blood passage way, to narrow in diameter. As a result, the heart must work harder to pump blood through the narrowed arterial openings. In addition, people with hypertension may be more susceptible to stroke. High blood pressure dangers: Hypertension's effects on your body High blood pressure is a risk factor for more than heart disease. Discover what complications high blood pressure can cause. High blood pressure (hypertension) can quietly damage your body for years before symptoms develop. Left uncontrolled, you may wind up with a disability, a poor quality of life or even a fatal heart attack. Fortunately, with treatment and lifestyle changes, you can control your high blood pressure to reduce your risk of life-threatening complications. Here's a look at the complications high blood pressure can cause when it's not effectively controlled. Damage to your arteries Healthy arteries are flexible, strong and elastic. Their inner lining is smooth so that blood flows freely, supplying vital organs and tissues with adequate nutrients and oxygen. If you have high blood pressure, the increased pressure of blood flowing through your arteries gradually can cause a variety of problems, including: Artery damage and narrowing. High blood pressure can damage the cells of your arteries' inner lining. That launches a cascade of events that make artery walls thick and stiff, a disease called arteriosclerosis (ahr-teer-e-o-skluh-ROE-sis), or hardening of the arteries. Fats from your diet enter your bloodstream, pass through the damaged cells and collect to start atherosclerosis (ath-ur-o-skluh-ROE-sis). These changes can affect arteries throughout your body, blocking blood flow to your heart, kidneys, brain, arms and legs. The damage can cause many problems, including chest pain (angina), heart attack, heart failure, kidney failure, stroke, blocked arteries in your legs or arms (peripheral artery disease), eye damage, and aneurysms. Aneurysm. Over time, the constant pressure of blood moving through a weakened artery can cause a section of its wall to enlarge and form a bulge (aneurysm). An aneurysm (AN-yoo-riz-um) can potentially rupture and cause life-threatening internal bleeding. Aneurysms can form in any artery throughout your body, but they're most common in the aorta, your body's largest artery. Damage to your heart Your heart pumps blood to your entire body. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can damage your heart in a number of ways, such as: Coronary artery disease. Coronary artery disease affects the arteries that supply blood to your heart muscle. Arteries narrowed by coronary artery disease don't allow blood to flow freely through your arteries. When blood can't flow freely to your heart, you can experience chest pain, a heart attack or irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias). Enlarged left heart. High blood pressure forces your heart to work harder than necessary in order to pump blood to the rest of your body. This causes the left ventricle to thicken or stiffen (left ventricular hypertrophy). These changes limit the ventricle's ability to pump blood to your body. This condition increases your risk of heart attack, heart failure and sudden cardiac death. Heart failure. Over time, the strain on your heart caused by high blood pressure can cause your heart muscle to weaken and work less efficiently. Eventually, your overwhelmed heart simply begins to wear out and fail. Damage from heart attacks adds to this problem. Damage to your brain Just like your heart, your brain depends on a nourishing blood supply to work properly and survive. But high blood pressure can cause several problems, including: Transient ischemic attack (TIA). Sometimes called a ministroke, a transient ischemic (is-KEE-mik) attack is a brief, temporary disruption of blood supply to your brain. It's often caused by atherosclerosis or a blood clot — both of which can arise from high blood pressure. A transient ischemic attack is often a warning that you're at risk of a full-blown stroke. Stroke. A stroke occurs when part of your brain is deprived of oxygen and nutrients, causing brain cells to die. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to stroke by damaging and weakening your brain's blood vessels, causing them to narrow, rupture or leak. High blood pressure can also cause blood clots to form in the arteries leading to your brain, blocking blood flow and potentially causing a stroke.

Causes of High Blood Pressure
 
02:53
http://bit.ly/bloodPressureNow Causes of High Blood Pressure What are the Causes of High Blood Pressure? The causes of high blood pressure include too much salt consumption and cholesterol interrupting the flow of blood through the arteries. In some people, the causes of high blood pressure include the normal process of aging or genetics. A person’s elevated blood pressure level may also be due to a phenomenon known as white coat hypertension. Too much salt in the diet is one of the most common causes of high blood pressure. Although most people use it every day to flavor food and it is added to several different beverages, salt can be a potentially dangerous spice. The human body relies on the sodium in salt to retain water in the blood and also help properly maintain the body’s fluid balance. When too much salt is present in the body, however, the amount of blood flow rises, which creates hypertension. Cholesterol is also both good and bad for the body. As a necessary part of cell membranes, the body uses cholesterol to create hormones and vitamins. Too much of it, however, can build up on the walls of the arteries, which then causes the pathways that blood uses to pass through the arteries to narrow. Too much cholesterol is, therefore, among the most common causes of high blood pressure since it slows the passing of blood through the body and ultimately causes the pressure inside of the arteries to rise. The aging process is also counted among the causes of high blood pressure in individuals. As a person ages, blood cells sometimes become damaged. When this occurs, there is a greater risk for a pigment, known as lipofuscin, to be deposited into the heart. These extra deposits cause healthy cells in the heart muscle to slowly deteriorate as the heart’s valves also thicken. Genetics is one of the primary causes of high blood pressure in some individuals. A family history of hypertension automatically raises a person’s risk level for developing this condition, as do similar lifestyle factors, which lead to hypertension. Individuals who ignore their own risk factor for high blood pressure place themselves in danger of developing this potentially deadly condition. For some individuals, one of the main causes of high blood pressure is due to a phenomenon known as white coat hypertension. People with this diagnosis will have normal blood pressure levels most of the time, but will test for high blood pressure when it is taken by a health care professional. While not everyone with this type of hypertension ever develops full hypertension, scientists believe it may be one of the leading causes of high blood pressure later in a person’s life. http://bit.ly/bloodPressureNow Causes of High Blood Pressure https://youtu.be/GcTkgFJ9fj4
How Does Salt (Sodium) Raise Your Blood Pressure?

SUBSCRIBE: https://www.youtube.com/user/DrJohnKiel FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/medicinelifestyle TWITTER: https://twitter.com/LifestyleMedYou I wanted to take a moment to talk about salt and it's effects on your body. Specifically, I wanted to talk about how it can raise your blood pressure. By better understanding the effects of salt on your blood pressure, you may be better able to manage that aspect of your health moving forward. Before I get started, I want to mention that salt has many roles in the human body and I'm going to specifically focus on blood pressure in this lecture. In a nutshell, sodium (or Na+), which I'll just refer to as salt ( NaCl) for now, helps your kidneys retain water. This serves a very essential function to our overall health and well being. The salt circulating in our bloodstream, and in the rest of our body, helps keep our circulatory system filled and allows the heart to do its job of delivering oxygen around the body. It is the job of your kidneys to regulate the amount of salt in your circulatory system. If total salt goes up, your kidneys will filter more out. If total salt goes down, those filters will close and your body will try to retain salt. This affects your blood pressure directly because the water "follows" the salt if you will. It does this through a physical process called osmosis. According to the American Heart Association, we require about 1500 mgs of salt per day. As Americans, we consume about 3,400 mg/day, more than twice what we need. Furthermore, 75% of the salt we consume comes from processed food and restaurant, and less than 25% from what we add ourselves. It's also worth noting that some people are more sensitive to salt intake than others. So if you have no heart or kidney problems, you're most likely able to filter out the excess salt. However, if you have heart or kidney issues, or you are particularly sensitive, then the excess salt can start causing problems and potentially damage some of your organ systems. Salt has several names including sodium, Na, Na+, NaCl, KCl and low sodium. Unsalted, no salt added, sodium free are terms you should look for on a nutrition facts label. Elevated sodium levels are associated with heart disease, heart attack, myocardial infarction, CAD or coronary artery disease, embolisms and blood clots, brain disease, stroke, dementia, vascular disease, atherosclerosis, arteriosclerosis, arteriostenosis, kidney disease, kidney failure, osteoporosis, stomach cancer, kidney stones and headaches. Symptoms of too much salt include dehydration, bloating, puffiness, weight gain, increased thirst, and excessive thirst. There are many ways to lower, decrease salt intake. One example is DASH diet or dietary approaches to stop hypertension (high blood pressure).

Why Diabetics Get High Blood Pressure

It's free and very enlightening. Dr. Berg talks about why diabetics tend to get higher blood pressure. This is because they have higher amounts of insulin. So insulin is not working in the cell, and the body makes more (5-7 more). Insulin causes the retention of sodium. This then causes the retention of fluid, which then raises the blood pressure. Most people then cut out the salt but they do not fix the high insulin. This creates a sodium deficiency. Sodium is needed to prevent muscle and nerve weakness. Side effects include muscle weakness, fatigue and even cramping. To top it off - people take a diuretic, which has a side-effect of causing potassium loss, which worsens the sodium-potassium ratio. Also it has a side-effect of causing insulin resistance, which worsens things. KETO: https://www.drberg.com/how-to-do-ketosis INTERMITTENT FASTING: https://www.drberg.com/how-to-do-inte...

No diet, lifestyle changes or medication required: http://hibloodpressure.stream/ Answers from: Rui Chang Angela Punus Yolanda Smith Ronald Vincent Ma Caixia 2 1Now i will popularize some knowledge about hypertension to all of you.^^1. we should know that the common sense about kidney, an essential organ of our body, so i find this photo. From this picture1, we can understand the structure of kidney.2. Now, let us amplify the nephron(you can find it on the picture1), as the basic structural and functional unit of the kidney, which filters the blood in order to regulate chemical concentrations, and thereby produces urine. OK, this is what it look like. the two arteriole(show on the top) is the key to this question.3. i talk about blood vessel and hypertension. Do you know what is blood pressure and how hypertension make an effect on vessels? show you another picture( i draw it *^_^*): 3hypertension make vessels narrow and blood flow weaken, therefore nephrons shrink without function. 4. Kidney has a great number of vessels, just as picture 4because impaired vessels, as a result of hypertension, weaken blood flow(the two artiole become narrower), nephrons fail, which means renal failure. This process is an outcome of long term. More: https://youtu.be/O1_FVXv8eP8 Subscribe to our channel!

Alcohol and High Blood Pressure - Effects, Treatment, Management
 
03:00
Alcohol and High Blood Pressure - Effects, Treatment, Management What is High Blood Pressure? http://alcoholmastery.com/alcohol-and-high-blood-pressure-effects-treatment-management/ High blood pressure has many causes, this post is primarily concerned with the relationship between alcohol and high blood pressure. Blood Pressure is the measurement of the pressure of the blood against the walls of your blood vessels. A BP monitor calculates the force of the blood from both the beating heart and the resting heart. Alcohol can cause high blood pressure (HBP) while you’re drinking, and long term heavy drinking can cause chronic high blood pressure. HBP can lead to a heart attack or heart failure, stroke, and kidney failure. Dr Brian Silver of Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, says "Somehow the binge drinking compounds [HPB] -- and more than just a little bit." Men with really HBP are at even greater risk. 6 or more drinks consumed in one sitting can quadruple the risk of having a heart attack or stroke. Dr Silver, who is also a spokesman for the American Heart Association, says “There have been studies that alcohol [consumption] can increase blood pressure 15 to 20 points. And if you start off hypertensive, raising your blood pressure 15 or 20 points probably does as much as double your risk of stroke, so this certainly fits with things we already know." What are the Symptoms of High Blood Pressure? There are really no symptoms of high blood pressure, other than it registering on a blood pressure monitor. So it is vitally important that you know this reading. High blood pressure can cause aneurysms, narrowing of the blood vessels and arteries, kidney failure, stroke, heart attack, blindness, and amputations. Treatment for High Blood Pressure The best way of controlling your blood pressure is to live a healthy life. Here’s 7 ways that you can lower your blood pressure and keep it down. Reduce alcohol intake Lose weight Exercise regularly Eat a healthy diet Reduce salt intake Reduce caffeine Stop smoking The more of these you choose to implement in your life, the better your blood pressure will be, and you’ll get the other benefits that come with a healthy lifestyle. There are also medications that can be prescribed in emergencies. Outlook The outlook for this condition depends on how much personal responsibility you take. If you go all out to change what you’re putting into your body, eliminate all the drinking and smoking, all the crappy foods and food additives, the outlook for a long and healthy life is very positive.

You need to have a regular check up or get yourself a Bp Monitor to give yourself a ballpark figure. If you drink, or smoke, or eat shit foods, you can be sure it's not doing your blood pressure any good. Alcohol and high blood pressure is just another risk you're taking with heavy drinking.

How to  lower blood pressure quickly and naturally
 
03:12
Learning how to lower blood pressure quickly and naturally comes very handy, especially in times when medicines are hardly accessible. (Important : I don't own the background music) High blood pressure or hypertension is one of the most common diseases among adults. Studies show that out of every three adults around the world there is one who suffers from high blood pressure. High blood pressure should not be underestimated; it is a highly dangerous condition, with complications that may lead to death if not controlled, as it is closely linked to cardiovascular diseases, kidney failure, and diabetes and retina damage. If you are suffering from high blood pressure, these factors can increase your blood pressure: 1. Salt intake rates (more than 6 grams per day), sodium in salt causes high blood pressure. 2. Drinking Too Much Caffeine 3. Obesity can hinder the capacity of the heart to pump blood to the organs, which increases the blood pressure. 4. Lack of exercise, especially aerobic exercises such as walking, swimming, and cycling. 5. Anxiety and stress 6. Smoking. 7. high-fat diet, especially saturated fat, eating fast food Garlic may be the best treatment for high blood pressure, according to studies, garlic help to reduce blood pressure, cholesterol, and strengthen the heart. How To Lower Blood pressure quickly and naturally using garlic Eat 2 to 3 cloves of garlic throughout the day You don't have to eat them all at once. You can simply add the garlic to the foods you eat throughout the day to get up to 2 to 3 cloves you need to treat high blood pressure. Tips and warnings Be sure to brush your teeth in the morning and after every meal to get rid of garlic smell. You can also chew parsley leaves and ingested them to eliminate the smell.

Does alcohol cause high blood pressure?
 
04:43
http://www.stopdrinkingexpert.com Does alcohol cause high blood pressure? Many drinkers have high blood pressure and often wonder if alcohol is the root cause. The answer I am afraid is; most likely yes. It is so common that the medical industry has a term for it. Alcohol induced hyper tension. You may expect the problem to be the result of alcohol affecting blood vessels but it is a little more complex and dangerous than that. Your body is an amazing machine, breathtaking in it’s power and complexity. Even while you are sleeping there is a part of your being that constantly keeps watch on all your vital functions. Your heart beats without any conscious desire or input. Your breathing is always at the correct rate. Your body temperature is kept to an optimum level. The central nervous system is responsible for doing all this and much more. does alcohol cause high blood pressureAlcohol badly interferes with the way your central nervous system operates. It becomes over energetic and starts to make mistakes. I am sure you can see how bad a mistake it is to allow this part of your body to make mistakes. Essentially your central nervous system is drunk. You probably wouldn’t want a drunk surgeon to operate on you and it is just as crazy to allow a drunk to control your heart and respiratory system. Back when I was a drinker I always had borderline hypertension. I was shocked when I stopped drinking alcohol because within one month. My blood pressure had not only improved but returned to a perfectly normal level. I was so surprised I asked the doctor to take my blood pressure three times. Alcohol induced hypertension causes strokes, heart attacks and a whole heap of health problems you don’t want!

10 Signs And Symptoms Of Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
 
04:02
Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is defined as high pressure in the arteries, that are the vessels which carry blood from the heart to the body. It’s easy to tell whether an adult has high blood pressure because there’s a standard set of measurements: Normal blood pressure—systolic under 120 mmHg and diastolic under 80 mm Hg; Pre-hypertension—systolic 120-139 mmHg or diastolic 80-89 mmHg; Stage 1 hypertension—systolic 140-159 mmHg or diastolic 90-99 mmHg; Stage 2 hypertension—systolic ≥160 or diastolic ≥100 mmHg. Approximately 86 million adults (about 1 out of every 3) in the United States have hypertension. Many factors can affect blood pressure, including - smoking, leading a sedentary lifestyle, a diet with a high salt intake, being overweight or obese, long-term sleep deprivation, a diet focused on meat, dairy products, and eggs, high LDL cholesterol, alcohol abuse or chronic alcohol use, or a family history of high blood pressure. If high blood pressure remains untreated, it can cause kidney failure, heart disease, and increases the risk of stroke. High blood pressure commonly has no symptoms and is often labeled "the silent killer." However, a few people with high blood pressure may experience: #1 Vision problems - hypertension can damage the vessels supplying blood to your retina, causing retinopathy. This serious condition can lead to blurred vision, bleeding in the eye, and complete loss of vision. #2 Nausea - a sensation of unease and discomfort in the stomach with an urge to vomit. #3 Headaches - some individuals with hypertension may experience headaches, but they usually don't occur unless the pressure is notably raised. #4 Erectile Dysfunction - the inability to have and maintain an erection becomes increasingly common in men as they reach age 50. But high blood pressure damages the lining of blood vessels and causes atherosclerosis, limiting blood flow to the penis. #5 Kidney Damage - a high blood pressure can cause damage to the filters and blood vessels in the kidney, making removal of waste from the body difficult. #6 Fatigue - feeling tired all the time and experiencing difficulty with everyday activities, such as climbing stairs, shopping, walking, or carrying groceries. #7 Mental function can also change as a result of hypertension with many experiencing difficulties finding words, memory loss, and an inability to focus. #8 Heart palpitations - to "make up for" the loss in pumping capacity, the heart beats faster. #9 Chest pain which may radiate to the back, arms, neck or jaw. #10 Ringing in the ear - considering the immense amounts of blood flowing in and out of the head and this area, it is no surprise that hypertension can affect one’s hearing. Note - According to various studies, foods or beverages that may help reduce hypertension include - whole grains, legumes, flax seeds, beets, dark green leafy vegetables, sweet potatoes, potatoes, hibiscus tea, and foods high in potassium (such as pistachios, bananas, raisins, almonds, dates).

Causes of High Blood Pressure
 
01:37
►► http://blueheronhealthnews.stvae.com ◄◄ THE MOST POWERFUL NATURAL SYSTEM TO CONTROL BLOOD PRESSURE THAT EXISTS & REALLY WORKS!!! Causes of High Blood Pressure High blood pressure can be caused by any number of factors in a person's life or by many factors all adding together. However, the hard truth is that if you don't control your blood pressure, it can lead to many serious medical conditions, including heart attack and stroke. By understanding the causes of high blood pressure, you can learn how to prevent your levels from exceeding the normal range and therefore promote in yourself and your family a healthier overall lifestyle. One of the major causes of high blood pressure is cholesterol. In most cases, a person with higher than normal cholesterol levels will also suffer from high blood pressure. This is due to the fatty deposits left on the artery walls from the cholesterol in your blood stream. The body actually needs no cholesterol, since it produces enough on its own, but the foods we eat often introduce more into our body. When no more can be absorbed into the blood stream, the cells deposit fat onto the walls of the arteries. This fat turns to a hard plaque, making our blood vessels smaller and smaller over time. The same amount of blood needs to flow through these smaller spaces, creating a higher blood pressure. An unhealthy diet also causes high blood pressure in another way. When there is too much sugar in the blood stream. Glucose, or blood sugar, increases due to diabetes, in which the body does not produce the chemical that regulates blood sugar. Ingesting food high in sugar, such as most desserts, can also cause your blood sugar to increase, as can stress, hormone levels, and infection. When there is more glucose in the blood stream, your blood is essentially thicker, and harder to push through your arteries and veins, creating a higher blood pressure. High blood pressure does not only come from an unhealthy diet, but can also occur due to drug intake as well. People who drink alcohol excessively, for example, increase their risk greatly of having high blood pressure. Caffeine is another drug that is proven to raise blood pressure, especially in combination with nicotine, which is found in cigarettes. Many other narcotics, especially those that are illegal in the United States, have also been show to increase your blood pressure. Genetics is a final factor in the high blood pressure battle. Some estimate that 30% of high blood pressure cases can be attributed, at least in part, to genetics. We do not have any control over our genes--genetics refers to the coding used in our bodies that produces everything from the color of our eyes to our height to the ability we have (or do not have) to curl our tongues. We get this genetic make-up from our parents, and so there is nothing we can do to stop ourselves from having a "high blood pressure" risk when we are born. However, we can prevent genetics from playing a major role be overall living a healthy life. By taking steps to reduce our high blood pressure, we can create a better future for our bodies, whether our parents suffered from high blood pressure or not. Living this healthier lifestyle, including eating a low-cholesterol diet, watching our sugar intake, and introducing less drugs into our bodies can help us overcome high blood pressure. low blood pressure heart problems heart disease blood pressure problems what is low blood pressure symptoms of heart disease what is heart disease low blood pressure numbers low blood pressure readings heart attack statistics hypertension high bp dangers of high blood pressure heart blood pressure blood pressure low dehydration and blood pressure blood pressure during heart attack blood pressure diseases high blood pressure and kidneys hi blood lowering blood pressure

Causes of Hypertension

Subscribe for the more videos. Hypertension: • Hypertension also is known as high blood pressure. • Blood pressure is expressed by two measurements, the systolic and diastolic pressures. • For most adults, normal blood pressure at rest is within the range of 100–140 millimeters mercury (mmHg) systolic and 60–90 mmHg diastolic. • High blood pressure is present if the resting blood pressure is persistently at or above 130/90 or 140/90 mmHg. Causes: 1) Stress : • Stress is a daily part our life which includes physical or mental stress. • Some studies shows, if we have any kind of stress then our body release stress hormone adrenalin and cortisol into the blood. • These hormones make the heart beat fast and constrict the blood vessel and constriction of a blood vessel causes high blood pressure. • Hypertension due to stress is temporal, when stress goes away the blood pressure comes to normal level. 2) Poor diet : • The food contains more amount of salt and fat are not good for the heart. • Fast food or package food has a large amount of salt. • Salt which has sodium hold more water in our body and this extra water creates pressure on our heart. • Unsaturated fat increases the risk of arteriosclerosis or hardening of the arteries. 3) Alcohol : • Chronic alcoholism damages the heart and leads to high blood pressure. • An excessive amount of alcohol drinking causes stress on heart and arteries. • Heavy drinking increases high lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides level in the blood. • This increased bad cholesterol deposits into blood vessel wall and they become narrow. 4) Smoking : • Chemical compounds of smoking cause both structural and functional alterations of heart and blood vessels. • Blood pressure and heart beat increases during smoking. • Nicotine has vasoconstriction effect. • Shor term smoking has temporary hypertension. 5) Obesity : • Obesity increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. • Also, fat waist and belly are the primary sign of hypertension. • In an obese person, thickening of arteries increased due to fat deposition. Hence, more pressure is required for flowing of blood which causes high blood pressure. 6) Older age : • Blood pressure is normally increased in older age. • In old age, arteries become hardens and narrow. • In old age, the elasticity of blood vessel wall is decreased. • Kidney function also decreases in old age. So, vessels are filled with extra fluid which leads to hypertension. 7) Diabetes : • In diabetes, blood vessels decrease the ability to stretch. • Arteries become narrowing called atherosclerosis in long-term diabetes. • Atherosclerosis causes high blood pressure and blood vessel damage. 8) Genetics : • If parents have hypertension then there is a chance to have hypertension in next generation. 9) Kidney disease : • Our kidneys filter blood to remove waste products from the blood. • If the blood vessel of the kidney is becoming narrow then hypertension occurs. • In kidney diseases, adrenal gland secretes a large amount of cortisol hormone. • These hormones are responsible for hypertension. 10) Sleep apnea : • It is a sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing or periods of shallow breathing during sleep. • When we do not take a breath then oxygen level in our body goes down. Hence brain gives the signal and our blood vessels become tighten. It gives more stress to cardiovascular system leads to hypertension. Symptom: 1) A severe headache : 2) Nasal bleeding : 3) Blurred vision : 4) Chest pain 5) Shortness of breath 6) Tiredness 7) Irregular heart beat 8) Fatigue 9) Blood in urine
The dangers of low blood pressure
 
06:49
Most people worry about high blood pressure, and with good reason as it portends numerous health risks, such as the possibility of an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. But… Low blood pressure brings a different set of problems, such as reduced brain function and increased mortality risk. If the upper or lower number deviates by more than 10 from 120/80, it pays to be aware low blood pressure may be affecting your health. Think of it like this. The function of your blood pressure is to push the blood out of your blood vessels by permeating out of them to the rest of the body. High blood pressure is often a compensatory response to something that is going on in the body. If you cover up the end response of your body you can get other symptoms. Such as, a very common side effect of blood pressure medications is brain fog or mental “unclarity”. Which really makes perfect sense. Your brain is now not getting the blood (or oxygen) it needs to function, which equals……uhhhhhhhh? What? As a side note I often find that in the elderly, if they have not taken care of themselves and their arteries are already starting to harden, this will lead to decreased permeability of the blood vessels. As a result, blood pressure goes up to compensate and get blood to the brain. If you lower blood pressure too much, you no think too much! ;-) Blood pressure pushes blood through about 100,000 miles of veins, arteries, and capillaries in the body, carrying oxygen, nutrients, immune cells, hormones, neurotransmitters, and other vital compounds. High blood pressure strains blood vessels. However, low blood pressure means not enough blood is getting to capillaries and tissues, particularly in your hands, feet, and brain. This deprives those tissues of sufficient oxygen and nutrients. You may have chronic nail fungal infections and cold hands and feet if so. These can also be signs of an immune system that is deficient as well. So it pays to check both. Adrenal fatigue as a cause of low blood pressure The most common cause of low blood pressure (other than taking blood pressure medications) in a functional medicine model is poor adrenal function. The adrenals are two walnut-sized glands that sit atop the kidneys. They produce stress hormones and help regulate blood pressure. Many people today suffer from adrenal fatigue due to chronic stress. Other causes of adrenal fatigue are poor diets, low blood sugar, chronic infections, gut problems, inflammation, and unmanaged autoimmunity — all stressors.

Blood Pressure - What is Blood Pressure - How To Lower Blood Pressure
 
02:30
In this video I discuss what is blood pressure, what blood pressure readings mean, and what is hypertension. I cover some causes of high blood pressure, and how to lower blood pressure. Transcript What is blood pressure? As the heart beats, it pumps blood through blood vessels to and from all areas of the body. As blood is traveling through the arteries, which are blood vessels where oxygen rich blood travels to organs and tissues, it pushes on the sides of the artery walls. Blood pressure is a reading of the force of how hard blood is pushing on the sides of the artery walls. High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is when this force is too high. Health care professionals will measure your blood pressure, while you are sitting at rest, with a device, usually a blood pressure cuff, which will produce 2 numbers. The 1st number is called systolic pressure, and it gauges blood pressure when the heart beats, while it is pumping blood. The 2nd number is called diastolic pressure, and it gauges blood pressure in between heart beats, when the heart is at rest. So, an example reading might be 117 over 79, with the 1st number being systolic pressure and the 2nd number being diastolic pressure. Normal blood pressure is defined as lower than 120 for systolic, and lower than 80 for diastolic. Your blood pressure will change throughout the day, being higher when you are active or under stress, and lower when you are resting. The chart on the screen lists the different stages of high blood pressure along with the systolic and diastolic readings for them . High blood pressure can cause severe damage to the body over time. It can cause artery damage and narrowing by damaging the cells of interior artery walls, which can lead to atherosclerosis or hardening of arteries. It can damage the heart, making it work harder to pump blood. High blood pressure can also lead to damage to the brain, kidneys and even the eyes, as well as bone loss and trouble sleeping. Some of the risk factors of having high blood pressure include age, heredity, being overweight, smoking, having high cholesterol levels, consistently being under stress, physical inactivity, and poor diet, including over consumption of foods with a high salt/sodium content. You can do some things to help control blood pressure. Improve your diet, which may include reducing salt and increasing potassium, get more active, maintain a healthy weight, find ways to manage stress, avoid tobacco products, and limit alcohol consumption.

Key Signs and Symptoms of Low Blood Pressure
 
08:12
Key Signs and Symptoms of Low Blood Pressure People frequently talk about high blood pressure, as it can lead to heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure. But low blood pressure, also known as hypotension, can also cause damage to your body. While a blood pressure reading of 140/90 mm Hg or above is considered high, a reading of less than 90/60 mm Hg is considered low. Everyone’s blood pressure drops at one time or another and doesn’t cause any noticeable symptoms. For instance, the transition from sitting or lying down to standing can cause a drop in blood pressure. Some people may experience low blood pressure right after eating or from prolonged standing. However, certain conditions can cause prolonged periods of hypotension that can be bad for your health. Such conditions include pregnancy, significant blood loss due to an injury, poor circulation caused by a heart condition, weakness that accompanies dehydration, dieting to lose weight, anaphylactic shock, infections of the bloodstream and endocrine disorders, such as diabetes, adrenal insufficiency and thyroid disease. Certain medications like beta-blockers, diuretics, tricyclic antidepressants and erectile dysfunction drugs can also cause hypotension. A deficiency of the essential vitamins B12 and folic acid can cause anemia, which in turn can lead to low blood pressure. Having persistent low blood pressure is not good. If the blood pressure gets severely low, your body will not receive enough oxygen to carry out its normal functions. A decreased oxygen level can lead to impaired functioning of the heart and brain as well as cause difficulty breathing. In certain cases, people with low blood pressure can lose consciousness or go into shock (when the organs shut down). This makes it more important to be aware of the signs and symptoms of low blood pressure, so that timely treatment can be provided. Here are the key signs and symptoms of low blood pressure. 1. Dizziness or Light-Headedness. One of the key symptoms of low blood pressure is dizziness and light-headedness. Low blood pressure causes poor blood flow to the brain. This reduces the oxygen supply to the brain and makes you feel dizzy and light-headed. This is often associated with a sudden position change, such as standing too quickly after waking up in the morning. If your blood pressure is severely low, dizziness can cause fainting, too. 2. Fatigue. Low blood pressure can affect your energy level and cause fatigue. The flow of blood plays a key role in the production of energy, as it provides the body with oxygen and necessary nutrients. The mitochondria within the cells need nutrients for energy production. When there is a disruption in the blood flow due to a drop in blood pressure, it disrupts the energy creation process, which in turn causes fatigue and tiredness. Even sleep disruptions caused by this change in blood volume can add to your fatigue. Having super low energy is never a good sign, so see your doctor. 3. Rapid Heart Rate. If you experience a rapid heart rate or palpitation, it may be due to a drop in your blood pressure level. Poor blood flow to the heart causes it to contract irregularly. If the heart is not getting filled with the right amount of blood, it compensates by beating faster. It can also cause your pulse and breathing to speed up. You may even notice frequent changes in body temperature. When it comes to your heart, any abnormal change should be checked by your doctor. 4. Cold, Clammy Skin. Having cold, clammy and pale skin (not due to strenuous physical activity) could be another sign of low blood pressure, especially when accompanied by rapid heartbeat and shallow breathing. This happens when there is not enough blood circulating in your body due to a drop in blood pressure.

Here Is How To Reduce Hypertension or High Blood Pressure At Home!

Here Is How To Reduce Hypertension or High Blood Pressure At Home! The hypertension or high blood pressure can be caused by genetics, thyroid disorders, toxic body burden, smoking, unhealthy diet, sedentary lifestyle, chronic stress, weight and age. People usually have combination of these factors. It is important to remember that it is one of the ‘silent killers’. That is why it is important to do the periodic blood pressure tests. A healthy blood pressure is 120 over 80. The 1st number measures the heart beating pressure and the 2nd measures the pressure of the resting heart. As there are numerous factors that can cause hypertension, there are many problems that can happen if it is left untreated. Hypertension increases the blood flow resistance in the vessels and forces the heart to work harder. High blood pressure contributes to hardening of the arteries. It is also associated with sexual dysfunction, blindness, aneurysms, dementia, kidney disease and cardiovascular disease. To control it, you need to make some changes in your lifestyle, diet and other contributing factors. If the blood pressure is reduces by 5-6 pints, the risk of stroke is cut by 40% and heart disease by 15%. There are numerous effective medications like ACE inhibitors, diuretics and beta blockers, but they can produce some side effects like rapid heartbeat, dizziness, headaches, fatigue, respiratory problems, depression, leg cramps and insomnia. The high blood pressure is profitable market for the drug companies as it is a common and chronic disease. Once a person starts on these drugs, they take them often for the long term. Drugs aren’t the only choice. There are numerous ways that it can be controlled naturally. If you have hypertension and you’re on medication, you shouldn’t stop taking them without medical advice from the health care provider. -For those who try to control the blood pressure, it is recommended to address potential weight issues. It is important to increase the physical activity and consume anti-inflammatory foods like lean proteins, healthy fats and fresh fruits and vegetables. You need to lower the intake of sodium as the salt retains body fluids and increases the blood volume. Reduce the salty snack like salted nuts, crackers and chips and choose mineral-rich and natural salt like Himalayan and Celtic. Smoking and consuming alcohol also affects the cardiovascular health. They can put a lot of stress on the heart and lead to hypertension and arterial hardening. The body evolved many mechanisms to respond to dangers. One of them is a rapid heartbeat to increase the blood flow and it is accompanied by increased blood pressure. But the real problem is the chronic stress and the background anxiety has huge physiological impact. The cortisol and the other stress hormones stay elevated wearing down the defenses and fueling chronic inflammation. The results are increased risk of cardiovascular disease and hypertension and many degenerative diseases. Meditation is a proven way to reduce the chronic stress. Another way to relieve stress is long walks. -The diet is one of the most critical approaches to high blood pressure controlling. The DASH diet is a specific diet that can lower the blood pressure. It means Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. It recommends whole grains, veggies and fruits. Also, part of this diet is the potassium-rich foods like bananas and green leafy veggies like kale and spinach. Reduce the trans fats and sugar because these foods fuel inflammation which can increase the risk of hypertension, damage heart health and harden the arteries. https://youtu.be/EQ9t3iPaj-0
