Using Blood Pressure Guidelines To Enhance A Healthier Lifestyles

By Betty Dawson

People who have a history of suffering from hypertension or high blood pressure are advised to follow the blood pressure guidelines given to them. The reason that people suffer from high blood pressure is that the arteries become stiff causing the overall flexibility of them to be reduced.

When the arteries become constricted the blood cannot flow as freely through them so the heart has to work at a higher rate to achieve this which can then leave the heart open to the chance of cardiac arrest. Factors influencing blood pressure can vary but two of the major causes are genetic and environmental. It can be a combination of both.

The genetic factors that may be responsible for the high blood pressure are mutations of the genes or hereditary conditions, but there may also be environmental reasons for the condition. These conditions may include a bad diet, a lifestyle without exercise, and a Body Mass Index (BMI) which is too high.

When a person has their blood pressure reading taken if it is normal the reading should show the systolic reading at 120mm/Hg and the diastolic reading at 80mm/Hg. A reading above 129mmHg systolic and 91mm/Hg diastolic is reason for concern as it indicates that there is a primary or secondary degree of hypertension. Because hypertension does not show any visible signs, the symptoms are generally discovered when the vital organs have already had the damage done to them

The damage that can be done to the vital organs is extensive and includes the heart, kidneys, and eyes and all this can be done without the patient knowing they have an illness. There is a chance of heart attack, heart and/or kidney failure, permanent blindness, and coma. To help in reducing hypertension a change of lifestyle is required which includes among other things, a healthy diet.

Physical activity, including exercises and aerobics, should be carried out on a weekly or monthly basis. Consumption of fatty foods should be minimized, and consumption of fruits and vegetables should be increased. Reducing the intake of hypertension increasing factors such as salt or alcoholic beverages, and refraining from smoking, can be some of the primary changes one can make.

Increasing water intake helps eliminate salt, as well as other toxins, from the body, thus helping in maintenance of normal blood pressure. Depression, stress and anxiety are the main causes of secondary hypertension and they need to be reduced by undertaking yoga exercises, laughter sessions and other techniques for mood elevation.

Hypertension is an illness that needs to be closely controlled and apart from the treatment some measures to prevent it should be carried out. Taking anti-hypertensive medicines may cause some side effects which can be harmful, so it is good to use home remedies to prevent this. There are a variety of home remedies in the normal household kitchen such as garlic, and onion that will help to control the side effects. If these blood pressure guidelines are followed then there is a good chance that the hypertension will be reduced and this will improve the standard of life.
