Do you need help with Hypertension or High Blood Pressure?
Your blood pressure is a measure of the pressure in your arteries as your heart pumps blood around your body. It naturally changes throughout the day, depending on your emotional state and physical activity levels, but when it stays consistently too high over time it is known as high blood pressure or ‘hypertension’, which literally means ‘over pressure’.
A certain amount of pressure is needed to pump the blood around your body. The pressure is highest as the heart pumps blood into the arteries, and lowest when the heart is resting in-between beats. A typical normal blood pressure reading is under 120/80 mmHg, and high blood pressure is defined as a reading of 140/90 or higher over a period of several weeks. Remember that many things can affect your blood pressure reading, so one high reading does not necessarily mean high blood pressure.
If you have been diagnosed with hypertension or high blood pressure, I can work with you while you continue to be treated by your GP. We will address the emotional and lifestyle factors that maybe contributing to your hypertension so that you can take back control and reduce your blood pressure naturally.
