Blood Pressure Solution. The Blood Pressure Solution, The Step-By-Step Guide to Lowering High Blood Pressure the Natural Way in 30 Days! Natural Remedies to Reduce Hypertension Without Medication

According to the World Health Organization, high blood pressure or hypertension affects approximately 22% of adults worldwide. In the United States alone, around 70% of adults have high or raised blood pressure – that is one in every three American adults.


Generally speaking, the higher the blood pressure, the higher the risk of damage to the heart and the blood vessels. High blood pressure is a chronic disease. If left untreated, hypertension can cause an array of health problems, including heart attack, cardiomegaly (an abnormal enlargement of the heart), heart failure, kidney failure, blindness, and cognitive impairment.

Thankfully, high blood pressure is treatable, and taking preventative measures to control your blood pressure is the best way to protect your health. After all, prevention is better than cure and there is a lot that you can do to prevent and control your blood pressure.

In most cases, lifestyle changes are completely effective in controlling blood pressure. We will cover all of the different natural hypertension prevention strategies available to you in Section 3 of this guide. With an emphasis on prevention, we will provide you with all of the knowledge and strategies you need to prevent high blood pressure – permanently! If you already have high blood pressure, the same methods can also be used to control and lower your blood pressure to a healthy level.

Section 1: Blood Pressure Explained

High blood pressure or hypertension, often referred to as the ‘silent killer’, is typically asymptomatic – meaning no symptoms are shown. Some people with high blood pressure will experience symptoms, including chest pain, dizziness,
headaches, shortness of breath, palpitations, and heart and nose bleeds. Most people, however, will experience no symptoms as all – until the damage has been done which is often after several years of living with high blood pressure.

The first step to preventing and managing high blood pressure is to understand high blood pressure, its causes, effects, and long-term consequences. All of this will be covered in this section.

1.   Understanding High Blood Pressure and Blood Pressure Readings

Blood pressure is a measurement of the force of blood that pushes against the walls of the arteries. The arteries are the large blood vessels that carry blood from the heart muscle to all of the other organs and muscles inside the body. As the blood is transported around the body, it pushes against the inside of the artery walls. The force of this ‘push’ is what we measure as blood pressure.

High blood pressure or hypertension is a medical condition in which the arteries are persistently subjected to elevated blood pressure. This increased pressure is caused by a rise in the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries. The increased pressure can be caused by the arteries becoming thicker or hardening due to the build-up of plaque. Thicker artery walls mean that there is less space for the blood to flow through the arteries.  This thickening  (or narrowing of the artery) results in abnormal blood flow whereby the blood pushes harder against the walls of the arteries. This raises blood pressure.

The Blood Pressure Solution

The higher the pressure, the greater the stress the arteries are under, and the more difficult it is for the heart to pump and deliver blood to the body. When blood pressure is high, this places stress on the body, which in turn can cause damage to the heart, kidneys, brain, and eyes.

The Blood Pressure Solution

How Is Blood Pressure Measured?

Blood pressure is expressed using two numbers – the systolic pressure (as the heart beats) over the diastolic pressure (as the heart relaxes). The normal systolic pressure is 120 mm Hg and the normal diastolic pressure is 80 mm Hg. Normal blood pressure is therefore written as 120 over 80, or 120/80.

Your pulse pressure is the difference between the systolic pressure reading and the diastolic pressure reading. Pulse pressure indicates the force that your heart muscle generates each time it contracts. Therefore, provided your blood pressure is normal, that is 120/80 mm Hg, then your pulse pressure is 40 (120 – 80 = 40).

As per the JNC7 report and guidelines, the following are the current blood pressure categories and their respective systolic and diastolic pressure values:

Category Systolic Pressure Diastolic Pressure
Optimal 115 or less 75 or less
Normal 120 or less 80 or less
Prehypertension 121 – 139 81 – 89
Stage 1 140-159 90-99
Stage 2 160 or more 100 or more
  Stage                           1   140 – 159   90 – 99
Stage                           2 160 or more 100 or more

When systolic blood pressure is equal to or greater than 140 mm Hg and/or the diastolic blood pressure is equal to or greater than 90 mm Hg, the blood pressure is considered to be high (140/90). If anyone’s value (systolic or diastolic) is in one of the elevated blood pressure categories, the patient is considered to be in that specific ‘stage’ of high blood pressure.


2.  The Causes, Types and Stages of High Blood Pressure

There are some unchangeable factors as well as some changeable factors that contribute to high blood pressure.

In general,  unchangeable factors that can be the root cause of high blood pressure include age, sex, ethnicity, family history, and the person’s medical history. Changeable factors which also have an impact on high blood pressure include diet, exercise routine, and stress management.

Essential Hypertension (Primary Blood Pressure)

Essential hypertension also referred to as primary high blood pressure, is where the exact cause of the high blood pressure is unknown. The causes of essential hypertension can be genetic, due to aging, or influenced by environmental factors.

Some of the most common environmental factors thought to have impacted high blood pressure include:

  1. Depression.
  2. Excess caffeine consumption.
  3. High salt intake – this raises the blood pressure in salt-sensitive individuals.
  4. Lack of physical activity.
  5. Obesity.
  6. Stress.

Secondary Hypertension

Secondary high blood pressure is blood pressure resulting from a disease, therefore there is an identifiable cause.

Secondary causes/conditions that can cause high blood pressure include but are not limited to:

  1. Acromegaly – abnormal enlargement or growth of the hands, feet, and face.
  2. Coarctation (narrowing) of the aorta.
  3. Conn’s syndrome.
  4. Cushing’s syndrome.
  5. Hyperaldosteronism   –   a   condition of excessive secretion of aldosterone leading to high blood pressure and low potassium levels.
  6. Hyperthyroidism – a condition characterized by a rapid heartbeat caused  by   the   abnormal   over-activity   of   a   thyroid   gland   or Hypothyroidism – a condition where the activity of the thyroid gland is abnormally low
  7. Kidney disease – kidney disease is the most common secondary cause of high blood pressure
  8. Obesity
  9. Pheochromocytoma – tumor of the adrenal medulla.
  10. Pregnancy – high blood pressure during pregnancy
  11. Sleep apnea

One of the most effective ways in which you can gain an understanding of your current health is to routinely measure your blood pressure using a home monitoring device.

Different Stages of High Blood Pressure:

Prehypertension:      Individuals     considered     to     fall     under                                         the

prehypertension classification is strongly encouraged to adapt

health-promoting lifestyle changes/modifications.

  • Stage 1 Hypertension: During this stage, defined by a constriction of arteries or an increase in blood volume, high blood pressure is reversible.
  • Stage 2 Hypertension:  During this stage, characterized by the permanent thickening of the blood vessels, high blood pressure is irreversible without the use of medication.
  • Stage 3 Hypertension: This is a hypertensive emergency.
Blood Pressure Category   Systolic (mm Hg)     Diastolic (mm Hg)
Normal Less than 120 And Less than 80
Prehypertension 120 – 139 Or 80 – 90
High          Blood Pressure Stage 1 140 – 159 Or 90 – 99
  High          Blood Pressure Stage 2   160 or higher  Or   100 or higher
Hypertensive Crisis (Emergency Care Needed) 180 or higher Or 110 or higher
    Normal     Less than 120     And     Less than 80
  Prehypertension   120 – 139   Or   80 – 90
High          Blood Pressure Stage 1   140 – 159   Or   90 – 99
High          Blood Pressure Stage 2   160 or higher   Or   100 or higher
Hypertensive Crisis (Emergency Care Needed)   180 or higher   Or   110 or higher

3.  Why is High Blood Pressure Dangerous?

High blood pressure is incredibly dangerous due to the associated health risks, including heart disease, blindness, cognitive impairment, and damage to the brain, kidneys, and blood vessels. If left uncontrolled and untreated, high blood pressure can lead to an enlargement of the heart, heart attack, and eventually to heart failure and death.

High blood pressure is in fact the most significant preventable cause of stroke and heart disease around the world.

The Blood Pressure Solution

The consequences of chronic high blood pressure can be worsened by other factors that increase the likeliness of stroke, heart attack, and kidney failure. These include alcohol abuse, tobacco use, persistent stress, obesity, high cholesterol, diabetes mellitus, an unhealthy diet, and a general lack of physical activity. The best thing to do is not worry if any of these habits apply to you and your current lifestyle.
