PRACTICAL PRACTICE: The conditions are so commonplace that they’re known as Hypertension, which means elevated blood pressure.
Hypertension is the number one cause of death in the United States, according to the American Heart Association.
Symptoms include lightheadedness, fainting, sweating, nose blowing, dizziness, shortness of breath and fatigue. If untreated, it can lead to stroke, heart attack, blood clots, kidney failure and multiple other diseases and diseases.
High blood pressure is called “prehypertension” or “high blood pressure,” or “over blood pressure.”
Your blood pressure increases with age. Hypertension is commonly found in middle-aged people between the ages of 45 and 60 years old.
Hypertension accounts for two-thirds of all deaths from cardiovascular disease and stroke in the United States.
Once it’s known that you have elevated blood pressure, steps can be taken to lower it.
Good food and drink choices can help lower blood pressure (see the diagram below).
Bones and joints can be improved by bending over at the waist and moving your pelvis. That exercises will help bring your blood pressure down.
Cholesterol, excess sugar, fats, cholesterol and the sodium produced by your body is what causes your blood pressure to rise. Foods that help lower your blood pressure include low-fat and low-salt foods, which are known as good fat, low-salt foods, which are known as good fats, and low-sugar foods.
Check to see what type of blood pressure check your insurance company offers. Your doctor should check your blood pressure at least twice a year.
Perform these exercises regularly (and often). My new personal trainer recommends three to five minutes of normal exercise five days a week.
Stretching improves blood flow and reduce the stiffness that can make it harder to lower your blood pressure.
At least four to five hours of sleep, daily.
Ask your doctor about joining a CFP association. I have a CFP to help me keep track of my blood pressure readings. Having a CFP helps me ask questions. It helps me understand what is actually taking place in my body.
To contact a CFP for assistance or information about your life plan, contact David Giuffrida, RPT and provide information about your health and ask to speak with the CFP and ask about health, life and family.
