Shedding Light on Hypertension
Hypertension (also more known as high blood pressure) is quickly becoming one of the most serious medical epidemics that humanity has ever had to face. Literally responsible for a wide range of serious medical conditions – including some deadly ones – you’re going to want to get a handle on your hypertension just as soon as possible.
Ideally, you’ll want to get out in front of hypertension before it has a chance to set in – but that may not always be possible. In those instances, you want to follow all of the insider information provided below (pulled from resources provided by the doctors and other sources) to change your life around and become healthier, happier, and more in touch with your body.
What exactly is hypertension?
Hypertension is basically an umbrella term, if you will, that describes what happens when your body’s cardiovascular system needs to pump harder and harder to push blood to all of your essential bodily systems.
Think of your heart as the pumping system, and your veins, arteries, and other blood delivery systems as the piping. Because of genetic predisposition (as well as a whole host of not so healthy living choices), are cardiovascular system can get gummed up with plaque and other debris – creating smaller and smaller pathways for our blood to travel through.
At this means that the blood needs to be pushed harder and harder to go through those pathways, which puts an incredible amount of stress and strain across the board (not only on your heart but also on the pathways themselves). This is similar to pinching a garden hose just as tightly as you can between your hands, skyrocketing the pressure but also doing some real damage to everything else.
Why is hypertension so dangerous?
There are a couple of reasons that hypertension is so dangerous, and some of them aren’t what you would think.
For one (and most obviously), hypertension will put a ridiculous amount of strain on all of your major bodily systems – beginning with your heart. Without your heart it’s impossible to stay alive, and any major failures will surely result in a fatality. Extra stress and strain will shave years off of your life, unnecessarily especially when you consider how easy it is to reverse hypertension in the first place.
Secondly, doctors (as well as off-line doctors) have been talking about the “hidden dangers” of hypertension for years and years. Because it’s so difficult to diagnose until it is almost too late, hypertension is able to wreak havoc on your body undiscovered and undeterred for undetermined amount of time – really messing up the place and putting you in harm’s way.
Finally, hypertension is incredibly dangerous because most people believe it will never happen to them – or that by the time it happens to them they’ll be too old to care. Once believed to be a medical condition that only plagued the elderly, we’re starting to discover (thanks to much of the collaborative research provided by doctors all over the world) that almost anyone at any age can suffer from hypertension. The last thing that you’re going to want to do is underestimate the severity of this situation, putting yourself in harm’s way for no reason whatsoever.
What can I do to reverse or cure hypertension?
This is where the overwhelming majority of the focus should be, especially if you’re serious about getting yourself into the very best health possible.
The first thing that you’re going to want to do (after being properly diagnosed with pre-hypertension or full-blown hypertension) is to adjust your eating and exercise habits as much as you can. On a case-by-case basis of the specifics of your workout and eating program will vary from anyone else’s, but as a general rule of thumb you’ll want to eat less processed foods and workout as frequently as you can – making sure to get in some relatively strenuous exercise at least a 3 to 5 times a week.
Secondly (and especially if your hypertension has developed to dangerous levels) you’re going to want to look into medical intervention. Sometimes this may require surgical procedures to alleviate the stress and pressure on your cardiovascular system, but more often than not you’ll have to take some form of drug or supplement. There are online specifically designed to cater to people who are living with full-blown hypertension – but you only want to move forward with them after speaking with your medical professional.
Another key to reducing hypertension’s impact (and one that is often overlooked) is reducing the amount of stress and pressure that you place upon yourself on a regular basis. While it’s almost impossible to alleviate all of the friction in our lives completely, trying to get to a better place mentally and emotionally will help you to “clear up” many of the more problematic issues.
