Warning: Your Blood Pressure Could be the Cause of Your FatiguePosted at November 29, 2016 by Ava Wynne on category Health
The American Heart Association estimates that 1 in 3 Americans have high blood pressure. That’s over 75 million people.
And at least 16 million of those people don’t know they have it.
High blood pressure also known as hypertension is often called the “silent killer” because it can have no symptoms.
Most of us know that high blood pressure is bad for us but some of us may not be fully aware of how bad. So let me take a moment to list some of the life threatening complications it can cause.
- Heart disease
- Kidney disease (also known as renal)
- Stroke which can result in brain damage
- Hardening of the arteries which can cause a heart attack or stroke
It’s important to remember that most times people don’t have symptoms of high blood pressure.
There are a few symptoms that can be obvious if you’re blood pressure is very high.
- Light headed
- Shortness of breath
There are numerous natural ways to get your blood pressure down and what you put in you’re pie hole is where we should start (Oops sorry. I said pie).
Here are 3 things to do in order to make sure you’re blood pressure stays healthy and your energy stays up.
- Cut down on salt
- Cut down on white starches like potatoes and pasta and replace with sweet potatoes or yams
- Increase your vegetables and herbs (think spinach, kale, turnip or mustard greens, cilantro, and parsley)
This is just a start as there are many natural ways to improve blood pressure.
Think about it. We need our blood to flow and to flow well throughout our bodies.
And if the blood isn’t getting to where it needs to or is having to fight an uphill battle to do so high blood pressure could be the culprit in feeling tired all the time.
So let’s get to the doctor or your local drugstore many of which have blood pressure machines and get your blood pressure checked out pronto!
Until next time,
