High Blood Pressure Control Remedy

When the heart pumps the blood through the arteries, the blood presses against the walls of the blood vessels. Those who suffer from hypertension have abnormally high blood pressure. Arteriosclerosis or atherosclerosis are common precursors of hypertension. Because the arteries are obstructed with cholesterol plaque in atherosclerosis, circulation of blood through the vessels becomes difficult. When the arteries harden and constrict in arteriosclerosis, the blood is forced through a narrower passageway. As a result, blood pressure becomes elevated.
    In addition to arteriosclerosis, hypertension is often precipitated by cigarette smoking, stress, obesity, excessive use of stimulants such as coffee or tea, drug abuse, high sodium intake, and use of contraceptives. Because too much water retention can exert pressure on the blood vessels, those who consume foods high in sodium are at a greater risk for high blood pressure. Elevated blood pressure is also common in those who are overweight. Blood pressure can rise due to stress as well, which causes the walls of the arteries to constrict. In addition, those with a family history of hypertension may be more likely to suffer from high blood pressure.
    Using a sphygmomanometer, the physician will take two types of blood pressure readings. The systolic pressure refers to the pressure exerted by the blood while the heart is pumping; this reading will indicate blood pressure at its highest. The diastolic pressure reads the blood pressure when the heart is at rest in between beats, when the blood pressure is at its lowest. Blood pressure readings are written in a ratio of systolic blood pressure to diastolic blood pressure. Both figures refer to the height that a column of mercury (Hg) reaches under the pressure exerted by the blood. Both the systolic and diastolic readings are important; neither should be high. A normal blood pressure reads 120 over 80 (120/80), wit the systolic pressure measuring 120 mm Hg and the diastolic pressure measuring 80 mm Hg. Normal blood pressure readings can vary from 110/70 to 140/90, while readings of 140/90 to 160/95 indicate borderline hypertension. Any pressure over 180/115 is severely elevated. See the self-test and inset for how to take blood pressure.
    An estimated 40 million Americans have high blood pressure. The heart must work harder to pump blood in those with high blood pressure, often leading to heart failure and stroke. High blood pressure is often associated with coronary heart disease, arteriosclerosis, kidney disorders, obesity, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, and adrenal tumors.
    Hypertension often is asymptomatic. Advanced warning signs include headache, sweating, rapid pulse, shortness of breath, dizziness, and vision disturbances. because hypertension often shows no signs, regular visits to your physician to check blood pressure are important, especially for those individuals in high risk categories. Have your blood pressure checked every four to six months.


It is impossible to make a correct diagnosis of high blood pressure in a doctor's office with a single reading. The test needs to be repeated throughout the day to be accurate. Home testing is best because it enables the person to periodically monitor the condition. To take your blood pressure at home, purchase a sphygmomanometer-a device with an inflatable bladder inside a hollow sleeve that fits around the arm and is pumped up. There are electronic models available that are very easy to use.
    The arm must be relaxed, supported, and held at chest level. The reading will be excessively high if the arm is too low. Do not speak while the pressure is being measured. Blood pressure usually rises when one talks. Slip the cuff on the upper arm and tighten. Pump up the bulb. Some units beep to indicate the systolic pressure (measured when the heart muscle contracts) and the diastolic pressure (measured when the heart muscle relaxes). Other sphygmomanometer units inflate and deflate the cuff automatically and either provide a digital read-out or give information in a computerized voice.
    The sphygmomanometer measures the distance that mercury would move given the amount of pressure that the blood is exerting on it. A normal blood pressure reading is 120 mm Hg systolic over 80 mm Hg diastolic (120/80). It can vary from a normal of 110/70 to 140/90. Borderline hypertension reads 140/90 to 160/90 or 160/95. Any pressure over 180/115 is severely elevated.
