Hypertension For Healthier Heart


Understanding Hypertension For A Healthier Heart

High blood pressure in medical terms is known as hypertension. When you have hypertension a variety of things happens in the body: shortness of breath, fatigue, less endurance and stamina, and the beginnings of arterial damage, too.

For those with high blood pressure, there are ways to control it, to reduce it and improve how your heart works and pumps so the body is healthier. Basically, living with hypertension means that your heart becomes weaker over time.

With high blood pressure, the heart pumps and works harder to circulate oxygenated blood to the entire body. It also works and pumps harder to clean the blood and have a high throughput with good blood velocity of blood flow.

Risk Factors Contribute to Hypertension

Maybe you’re tired of hearing about your lifestyle choices. Honestly, everyone stands to improve lifestyle choices. Do you smoke? Are you obese? Do you lead a sedentary lifestyle? How is your nutrition planning and what types of food do you eat daily?

The answers to these questions go hand in hand with lifestyle risk factors. If you are a smoker, if you are overweight, if you do not exercise, and if you drink excessive amounts of alcohol, your numbers will indicate an issue with your heart health.

Each of these factors add an extra dimension of negativity on the heart’s ability to work healthfully. Lowering risk factors ensures that you’re contributing to a healthier heart over time and improving your chances of reducing the potential for cardiovascular disease.

Understand Your Body’s Blood Pressure Numbers

Several years ago, physicians changed the range of blood pressure numbers considered to be normal. Now, it’s healthier to have a blood pressure less than 120/80 mmHg. The more elevated either number is, the more in range you are being hypertensive.

Long-term hypertension contributes to advanced cardiovascular disease, especially when it goes unchecked. If you do nothing to make lifestyle changes, continue to eat a diet high in saturated fats and salt, and conduct yourself in ways that inhibit your health overall, then you can rest assured that you are on the way to damaging arteries.

Heart disease is a silent killer. One day you can be mowing the lawn and the next your body suffers a massive heart attack. Having high blood pressure over time contributes to the damage of blood vessels. When the arterial system becomes clogged with cholesterol and fatty tissue, blood is unable to circulate through the arterial system.

Soulaire Circulation Therapy Helps Open Pathways for Blood Flow

Soulaire Circulation is EECP, a decades-old therapy that is clinically proven to help those living with angina pectoris. When there is pain in the chest, around the heart, this means the heart is overworking and the arteries are becoming clogged. Painful exertion becomes the norm.

When you schedule a free trial at Soulaire, a company in Santa Monica, California, you lie on a comfortable bed (one that Soulaire manufactures, actually) and relax. A technician wraps cuffs around your lower extremities and when your heart is at rest, the cuffs inflate. When your heart pumps, the cuffs deflate. The cuffs that wrap around your calves, thighs and buttocks squeeze your legs and push blood upwards to the heart like two hearts pumping. This passive exercise helps the heart’s workload and also helps reduce blood pressure.

Reduce Blood Pressure and Risk Factors

  • Choose foods that are low in fat and low in sodium
  • Eliminate caffeine especially in soda and coffee beverages
  • Make exercise part of your daily routine
  • Stop smoking
  • Keep weight under control
  • Hydrate on a regular basis; drink 8 glasses of water every day
  • Choose to drink limited alcohol and eliminate drugs

Heart disease is the number-one killer in the world. You don’t need to be worried about it if you keep your blood pressure within normal ranges for a healthy heart.
