Naturopathic Hypertension Treatment
Hypertension is the medical terminology used to describe high blood pressure. It is a very common condition that develops over the course of many years. In fact, it is estimated that about 30 percent of Americans have high blood pressure. Your blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries as it courses through your body. The more blood being pumped and the narrower your arteries, the higher blood pressure you will have. Over time, high blood pressure can cause serious damage to the arteries and to the heart itself.
Hypertension affects millions of people, yet it often progresses without showing any outward signs or symptoms. High blood pressure left untreated can cause damage to the eyes, kidneys, and blood vessels and can cause strokes and heart attacks. Although it often goes unnoticed until it’s too late, high blood pressure can be quickly and easily measured. It is good practice to have your blood pressure checked about every two years. Being obese or overweight, not exercising, smoking and eating a diet high in salt can all contribute to having high blood pressure.
