Hypertension is high blood pressure.
If you are suffering from hypertension, your blood is circulating through your body at a rate that is higher than normal.
You might be wondering why hypertension should matter to you.
Until you receive a test from a high pressure gauge, you might not realize that you even have hypertension. But you might notice the symptoms that come with severe hypertension.
If you are suffering from hypertension, you might be experiencing a variety of symptoms that are sometimes also related to other diseases and conditions. This is why hypertension is commonly called the “silent killer.”
Also, if you suffer from the beginning stages of hypertension, you might not experience any symptoms at all.
The symptoms that you might be experiencing if you have hypertension are: low energy, indisposition, weight gain, nose bleeds, blood in the urine, heart palpitations, headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, and difficulty breathing.
If you are suffering from these symptoms, you shouldn’t feel alone. High blood pressure is on the rise.
What are the side effects of hypertension medication?
ACE inhibitors cause coughing, dizziness, headache, fatigue, weakness, rash, and excessively low blood pressure
Angiotensin-II receptor antagonist causes a rapid swelling of cells, which can be life-threatening. This medicine also causes nausea, headache, back pain, fatigue, nasal congestion, diarrhea, upper respiratory tract infection, abdominal pain, and sore throat.
Beta blockers cause dizziness, fatigue, weakness, trouble sleeping, and shortness of breath.
Alpha blockers initially cause dizziness. More long term side effects are headache, nausea, weight gain, and weakness.
Calcium-channel blockers cause headache, rash, drowsiness, flushing, nausea, constipation, and swelling feet and legs.
Diuretics cause increased urination, dizziness, weakness, and dehydration. Dehydration is an especially bad side effect because your body needs fluids in order to cleanse and rejuvenate itself.
Since hypertension often has no noticeable side effects at all, the cure is truly worse than the disease.
Is there a healthier natural way?
There is always a natural way to help your body reverse diseases and health problems that you are suffering from.
All you have to do is eliminate cooked foods, dangerous substances, excessive stress, and other causes of hypertension while giving your body the nutrients that it needs. By treating the root causes of hypertension, you can finally lower your blood pressure back to normal.
In order to cleanse your body, you must drink more purified water. Water is the only substance that can truly cleanse your body.
Though juices are often fantastic at cleansing and detoxifying your body, you must also drink plenty of water. Only purified water completely lacks the harmful toxins that cause hypertension in the first place.
You can get all your necessary oils, vitamins, and minerals by taking flaxseed oil, vegetable juices, seeds, yarrow, grape root, buckwheat, olive oil, dandelion, valerian root, and garlic.
Also try wheatgrass and bean sprouts. Both are fantastic sources of nutrients.
Also, spend plenty of time out in the sun in order to get more of the vitamins that you need. For hypertension, it is especially beneficial to get as much potassium as possible in your diet.
Leafy vegetables and certain other fruits and vegetables are very high in potassium and should be worked into your diet as much as possible.
Understand that your body needs time for cleansing and rejuvenation. Set plenty of time aside for rest and relaxation. Also, make sure that you are getting plenty of sleep a night.
The health problems and toxins caused by your lifestyle might be causing insomnia, which can further inhibit your body’s ability to heal and restore itself.
As you change your lifestyle and eating habits, you will notice how much easier it is to get the sleep you need. To aid in relaxation, consider treating yourself to a body massage (Chinese massage) .
Also, when cleansing the outside of your body, you can take hot, peroxide baths and foot baths. Try anything that can help your body relax and more effectively heal itself.
