8 Reasons for High Blood Pressure | Hypertension Prevention and Control Tips| Swami Mukundananda


the heart is a muscle that pumps blood
around the body the pumping of blood creates pressure blood pressure is the
amount of force exerted against the walls of the arteries as the blood flows
through them if a person has high blood pressure it means that the walls of the
arteries are receiving too much pressure on a constant basis
high blood pressure is also known as hypertension in the United States
according to the American Heart Association about one in every three
adults over 20 years of age has high blood pressure
the National Institute of Health estimates that about two-thirds of
people over the age of 65 in USA have high blood pressure some of the reasons
for high BP are first age the older you are the higher your risk of having high
BP to family history if you have close family members with hypertension your
chances of development are significantly higher 3 weight overweight people are
more likely to develop high BP compared to people of normal weight for smoking
smoking reduces the blood oxygen content so the heart has to pump faster in order
to compensate causing a rise and bb5 alcohol intake people who drink
regularly have high systolic blood pressure compared to those who do not
researchers have found that systolic blood pressure levels are about seven
millimeters of mercury higher in people who drink compared to
those who do not number six physical inactivity lack of
exercise as well as having a sedentary lifestyle raises the risk of
hypertension 7th mental stress especially if it continues over a long
term it can have a serious impact on blood pressure eight diabetes people
with diabetes are at a higher risk of developing hypertension there could be
many other causes such as weak kidneys that stopped removing waste and extra
fluid from the blood now treating it if hypertension is left untreated or
uncontrolled it can cause many health problems these conditions include heart
failure vision loss stroke and kidney problems let me suggest to you some tips for
lowering the blood pressure over the years research reveals that several
habit and lifestyle changes can greatly increase your odds of preventing high
blood pressure and maintaining a healthy blood pressure range
these include 1 reduce your weight and watch your baseline weight loss is one
of the most effective lifestyle changes for controlling BP losing even a small
amount of weight if you are overweight or obese can help reduce your BP
tremendously besides shedding pounds you should also keep an eye on your
waistline carrying too much weight around your face can put you at a
greater risk of high blood pressure to exercise regularly regular physical
activity about 30 minutes a day six days a week can lower your BP by about five
to eight mmm some examples of aerobic exercises you may try to lower your BP
include yoga walking jogging cycling swimming
you can also try the Sun Salutations or Surya Namaskar do a few rounds until
your heart is pumping hard and then take a break again do a few rounds and take a
break you can repeat this in cycles this is the yogic way of high-intensity
interval training which involves alternating short bursts of intense
activity with subsequent recovery periods of lighter activity
antigravity yoga CIL’s that result in strength training can also help reduce
blood pressure three Iza on salt it’s a prime offender in raising blood pressure
check your food labels to see how much you’re getting seventy five percent of
your sodium intake comes from eating out of packaged foods so keep your diet as
unprocessed as possible consuming less things that come in packages avoiding
takeout restaurant food and really limiting fast food so cook more at home
cooking at home is an important part of lowering your BP making your homemade
meals from fresh nutrient-dense foods helps you lower your sodium and sugar
intake while boosting your intake of powerful BP lowering nutrients like
potassium antioxidants and fiber for increase fiber consumption
consuming plenty of fiber has been shown to help prevent hypertension plus it can
manage our appetite and avoid the blood sugar rollercoaster that results in
cravings fatigue poor digestion and various health problems fiber is found
in nearly all unprocessed plant foods so eating fresh vegetables aids in lowering
your BP five quick alcohol drinking alcohol can
raise your blood pressure by several points it can also reduce the
effectiveness of blood pressure medications six quit smoking each
cigarette you smoke increases your BP for many minutes after you finish
stopping smoking helps your blood pressure return to normal
quitting smoking can reduce your risk of heart disease and improve your overall
health 7 reduce your stress chronic stress may contribute to high
blood pressure lowering your stress helps keep your BP normal try mind-body
exercises like yoga and Tai Chi listen to or create calming music and if you
