5 Reasons For Elevated Blood Pressure

risk!

Elevated Blood Pressure Reason #1: Weight & Bad Diet. It is important to note
that what you currently eat (and ate in your childhood) can have a massive
difference on blood pressure. A poor diet has consistently been linked to
hypertension. Excess weight - is another major contributor to high BP. If you are
overweight- then losing weight is a sensible first step in treating high blood pressure.
Reduce the amount of fats, oils, sugar and salt in your diet and increase the amount
of fruit and vegetables, cereal and fish.

Elevated Blood Pressure Reason # 2: Stress. This is very often mentioned as a
risk factor for high BP. If you are in a highly stressful environment at home or at
work your BP will suffer. You need to find methods that help you relax and switch off
which will help lower your BP. This can be a hobby such as photography, writing,
gardening. Consider Yoga, Tai Chi, meditation or other stress-reducing techniques.

Elevated Blood Pressure Reason #3: Alcohol. Heavy or regular use of alcohol is
another known cause for elevated blood pressure. Reducing alcohol intake can often
reduce high BP without the need for any drug treatment, that is how powerful
reducing or eliminating alcohol from our lives is.

Elevated Blood Pressure Reason # 4: Lack of Physical Activity. An inactive
lifestyle is one of the reasons for obesity which results in increased BP. Physical
Activity will also reduce your stress and lower your BP.

Elevated Blood Pressure Reason # 5: Genes. High BP seems to run in families
and accounts for about half of High Blood Pressure Sufferers. Knowing how to
prevent high BP is therefore important. By keeping an eye on all of the above
mentioned risks, it will help reduce the risk of developing high BP.

These are just the basics you need to know about the causes of high BP and to
better educate yourself to a more healthier life. However I hope that you are
interested enough to know more and how to treat it successfully. Just as family
doctors can't look after you 100% all the time if they are completely unaware of
your everyday living, so you can't interpret their advice properly if you are completely
ignorant of the nature of your high BP and what can and cannot be done about it
with natural remedies or drug treatments. If not, your alternative is to let doctors
make the decisions for you without your help or informed consent for the rest of
your life.
