How to prevent Hypertension? Know about Causes and Symptoms

High blood pressure or hypertension is also known as ‘silent killer’ because it often comes with no symptoms but tops the list in the most common cardiovascular problem. If hypertension is left untreated, it can cause severe strain to heart, blood vessels and also increase the risk of stroke, chest pain and even kidney related disorders.

When the pressure of blood on the artery walls is higher than the normal values (120mmHg systolic and 80mmHg diastolic), then the person is diagnosed with hypertension. Anyone can get high blood pressure; however, gender, age, lifestyle habits, family history, being overweight, and ethnicity can increase your risk.

Causes and Hypertension Symptoms

Controlling your lifestyle habits through physical activities, limiting alcohol consumption, eating a healthy diet, and maintaining a healthy weight helps to reduce the risk of getting hypertension, reducing stress, and controlling body weight. There are many other factors that contribute to blood pressure, and it is not obvious what the cause may be.

Causes of high blood pressure include

  • Smoking,
  • Being overweight,
  • Lack of exercise,
  • Intake of alcohol and caffeine,
  • Intake of too much salty food, and
  • Medications like SSRIs and hormonal birth control can also lead to hypertension,
  • Thyroid problem,
  • Diabetes,
  • Stress,
  • Lupus, and
  • Kidney problem.

People experience many complications from the hardening of the artery walls that cause high blood pressure. Identifying these symptoms can be tricky, as many people with this disorder won’t experience any noticeable signs. Some of the possible complications of hypertension include:

  • Stroke,
  • Blurry vision,
  • Headaches,
  • Chest pain,
  • Memory loss,
  • Dizziness,
  • Shortness of breath, and
  • Nosebleed.

Knowing your complications is the key to prevention

If you leave your hypertension problem untreated, the complications may get worsen. The pressure on arteries can lead to severe damage to organs and blood vessels. Over time, this damage will result in serious health problems like stroke, chest pain etc; meaning leaving blood pressure untreated for a longer period will worsen its condition.

Being diagnosed with hypertension can be stressful, but with early diagnosing it can be treated effectively. Treatment for blood pressure depends on the stage of the condition, and your medical history. For early stage, change in healthy lifestyle habit is enough, but for advanced hypertension condition, more extensive treatment is needed.

Unlike other medical practices, cupping therapy is the only effectual treatment that focuses on the root cause of this disease that helps to improve the chance of recurrence of high blood pressure. This treatment helps to reduce stress, eliminate toxins from the body, relaxes mind and body, and lower hypertension.

By undergoing cupping treatment, we at Halina Cupping Clinic pride ourselves on successfully reducing the recurrence rate and offering people a new direction to live a healthy life both physically and emotionally.
