High Blood Pressure
What is blood pressure?
The heart is a small but very powerful pump that beats steadily throughout your life, circulating five litres (more than 10 pints of blood) around the body every minute. The smaller blood vessels through which the blood passes produce a resistance to blood flow. The pumping of the heart against this resistance creates the blood pressure necessary for the circulation of the blood. This circulation is essential for nutrition of the major organs, such as the heart, kidneys, liver and brain, providing the vital oxygen and nutrients necessary for life. So, everyone needs to have a blood pressure to maintain their circulation!
Understanding high blood pressure
Blood pressure is vital to life whilst high blood pressure can be a threat to it. A permanently raised blood pressure leads to an increased tendency to blood vessel damage, and blood clot formation which may result in heart attack, stroke, or kidney failure. High blood pressure affects one in six of us. High blood pressure tends to run in families. Ironically, you may be totally unaware that your blood pressure is high. Apart from rare exceptions, there is no cure for high blood pressure. Treatment lowers blood pressure, but when it is stopped the blood pressure rises again.
Causes of high blood pressure
In the vast majority of people with high blood pressure there is no single clear cut cause, and the condition is called hypertension. A number of factors combine to raise the blood pressure, of which heredity is most important - high blood pressure tends to run in families. Contrary to popular myth, high blood pressure is not a disease of the nervous/ highly-strung, or caused by a stressful lifestyle. If your blood pressure is high your doctor may arrange several measurements as the stress of seeing a doctor may initially cause blood pressure to rise! In a very few people there is a specific cause for high blood pressure, and removal of the cause can produce a 'cure'.
Magnetic treatment for high blood pressure
Although there is no known cure for the majority of people suffering with high blood pressure, it is possible to treat it very successfully. Mainstream treatments include water tablets (diuretics) and high blood pressure tablets ( anti hypertensives: beta blockers, ace inhibitors and calcium channel blockers).
