Most chronic conditions are an imbalance within the body and the same is true for high blood pressure. The symptoms associated with hypertension are seen as an attempt by the body to maintain its balance. With this in mind, hypertension is viewed not as an isolated illness but as a sign of underlying disharmony within the body. Hypertension is not only a physical ailment but an emotional, mental and even spiritual element that causes this disease.
People with hypertension should make an effort to reduce their blood pressure by initially making reasonable and usually simple changes to the way they live.
Some of these lifestyle changes include:
• Stopping or reducing smoking
• Cutting down on the amount of salt added to food. If you find this difficult then chose a healthier alternative like Himalaya salt instead of table salt
• Reducing weight gradually by following a healthy diet
• Reducing alcohol intake and especially avoiding ‘binge’ drinking
• Reduce caffeine intake so that your blood pressure does not spike
• Get light, regular physical exercise appropriate to body size and weight
• Take time to relax and reduce stress

What is Hypertension?
Hypertension is defined as any elevation in systolic or diastolic blood pressure above normal. Blood pressure is stated as a measure of 2 numbers obtained manually using a sphygmamometer and a stethoscope. Systolic pressure, is the highest reading. The second, or diastolic pressure, is the second lower reading. The systolic pressure is the maximum force of the heart and the diastolic pressure is the minimum or the relaxation of the heart between beats.
What is a normal blood pressure?
Normal blood pressure is generally seen as being 120/80 mmHg but varies from person to person with the normal blood pressure of an individual getting higher as we get older.
Reasons causing high blood pressure
A number of reasons which cause our heart rates to fluctuate on a daily basis such as;
Increased physical activity,
Our emotional state,
An awareness of these factors particularly if you are prone to or already have high blood pressure can greatly influence your control of the condition.
What is Primary and Secondary Hypertension?
Hypertension is classified as either primary or secondary.
Is generally due to an unknown cause. Heredity is a predisposing factor and environmental influences only seem to act in genetically susceptible people.
Is considered a lifestyle illness and is associated with systemic disease aggravated by many factors. Some of these factors are poor lifestyle, stress, diets high in sugars and fats, excessive alcohol intake, oral contraceptives and substance use, among others. Obesity may also predispose a person to developing hypertension.
Some of the symptoms associated with hypertension include;
Lack of energy
Bleeding from the nose and gums
Numbness and tingling of the fingers and
Shortness of breath.
Unfortunately because many of these symptoms are also linked to other illnesses they can often be overlooked or ignored.
