Low Blood Pressure | Hypo-tension | Dr. Jack Wolfson


Hey. It’s Dr. Jack Wolfson, a world certified cardiologist and the author of the Amazon bestseller ‘The Paleo Cardiologist’. Today, I want to talk to you about Low Blood Pressure or Hypotension. I got a lot of people who ask me
about low blood pressure and should they be concerned or not. First of all, low blood pressure is definitely a concern and we need to figure out why. Some people, when their blood pressure is low, don’t have symptoms. But other people do. The typical symptoms of low blood pressure are lightheadedness, dizziness, wooziness. It could even be fatigue and it can be passing out. So if you have low blood pressure, let’s figure out why. The most common causes for sudden low blood pressure would be if you are dehydrated if you have fever if you have some form of anemia when you are losing blood. Those are the most common causes
of low blood pressure. Of course, taking a pharmaceutical for high blood pressure can also
lead to low blood pressure. Now otherwise, people have low blood pressure and maybe they don’t have those conditions. But again, there is something that is causing their body and their blood vessels to be too open and therefore, have too low of blood pressure. I think what we need to do is to figure out why. And it goes back to the causes of everything
that leads to ill-health, whether it is cancer, coronary disease, dementia strokes, and kidney failure. You name it. So the things that can cause low blood pressure, I believe, are poor nutrition, lack of sunshine, lack of sleep. Environmental stress can do it. What we need to do is get a good sleep, sunshine and get adjusted by the doctor of chiropractic because that can help reset the autonomic tone and therefore, the blood vessels will function better than normal. Now when your blood pressure is low, easier strategies are, of course, stay well hydrated, drink quality mineral water, add a little sea salt to diet your as well, avoid getting up too fast, and then finally, the best thing you can do is get tested. Get tested to find out other
minerals and vitamins deficiencies that could be leading to your low blood pressure. So, hopefully, this was helpful.
I’m open to any of your questions. Shoot me in the email [email protected], if you have more questions about
what to do about low blood pressure.

    I would like to know how a BP reading which takes about 1 minute when you are calm and relaxed can represent the other 23 hours and 59 minutes of unknown BP that is surely higher with activity. If there was a continuously measuring BP meter, what would the reading be then with normal activity? Would that be consider High BP or Normal BP?
