High Blood Pressure And You

High Blood Pressure And You

Many people are aware that high blood pressure (hypertension) can cause heart disease and damage the body over time. Yet there are a number of health problems for which high blood pressure can be a risk factor that are less widely recognized. The more you know about the health risks of hypertension, the more likely you are to seek treatment and make the kinds of lifestyle adjustments that will lower your risks of complications from hypertension.

To discover how to lower your blood pressure naturally without expensive medication, be sure to check out the Blood Pressure Solution     

Some common complications from high blood pressure include:

Heart Damage

Hypertension requires your heart to work harder than normal to get sufficient blood to all areas of the body. Your heart is a muscle, and like all your muscles it can get tired and become less effective. The constant strain of hypertension can cause the heart to permanently weaken over time and become more prone to heart attacks and strokes.

Solution: Losing weight through diet and exercise  is one way you can help out your heart and lower blood pressure.

Arterial Damage

Damage to the vast network of arteries flowing to and from the heart that supply the body with oxygen and nutrients can create many complications. High blood pressure can cause a narrowing of the arteries that over time worsen with hardening of the arteries. The result is that arteries become stiff and lose their strength and elasticity. Hardening of the arteries blood flow to the heart can be reduced, resulting in chest pain, stroke, aneurysms and other forms of organ dysfunction and failure.

Solution: Us the proper supplements and lifestyle choices that can help improve circulation and decrease the chance of deposits building up in arteries. It is difficult to fix damaged arteries so prevention is key.

Brain Damage

Another major organ in addition to the heart that is susceptible to injury from high blood pressure is the brain. It too needs a steady supply of blood for proper functioning but hypertension tends to undermine the brain by reducing the blood flow and encouraging the forming of blood clots that can cause a stroke, resulting in problems ranging from impaired speech, memory loss and difficulty with normal body movement. Brain damage from hypertension can also lead to memory problems and even full-blown dementia.

Solution: If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with hypertension it is important to begin managing high blood pressure immediately. Being proactive and taking steps to reduce high blood pressure will help prevent negative side effects such as brain damage.

Kidney Damage

The kidneys are heavily dependent on adequate blood flow to function; therefore, any damage done by high blood pressure on blood vessels and the heart can also threaten the kidneys, making it difficult for them to properly filter the blood. Over time hypertension can contribute to kidney problems that may ultimately result in the need for dialysis or even a complete kidney transplant. All these problems become even more severe if they are further complicated by diabetes.

Solution: Work to manage your high blood pressure by lowering your stress, changing diet, and using proper supplements. Keeping your blood pressure regulated will reduce the risk of further damage to vital organs and help you live a healthier life.

Whether it is the heart, the circulatory system or the kidneys, all of these essential body organs can be seriously damaged by untreated hypertension. Therefore be sure to have your blood pressure checked regularly in order that hypertension can be quickly identified and treatment can begin early, before any serious damage is done. High blood pressure can be controlled as long as you are willing to make the changes to keep your body in its best condition.
