Like cholesterol, high blood pressure is considered a silent killer, as many people exhibit no symptoms of what can be a deadly condition. In fact, high blood pressure is one of the most common contributors to heart disease.
The higher your blood pressure, the harder your heart must work to pump the blood through your body. This strains the blood vessels and the heart itself, which can actually become enlarged if over-worked for an extended period of time.
Although the cause of high blood pressure can be challenging to find, the best way to normalize blood pressure is to correct the cause. Diet, exercise, and normalizing weight can play a large part in the cause. Sleep and vitamin deficiencies can play a huge role in cause as well. And as with the management of cholesterol, acupuncture, IV nutrient therapy, and vitamin injections can help.
