High Blood Pressure

It is common to hear high blood pressure nowadays, however, some does not really know what is high blood pressure, why causes it or how we have it. High Blood Pressure is otherwise known as Hypertension. It is a chronic medical condition where the blood pressure of a certain individual is elevated or raised. It strains the blood vessel which results to blood vessel clogging that will lead to narrowing or clotting of said vessel causing damage to the heart or brain.

Some causes of hypertension may be kidney diseases, tumors or fatty liver. High blood pressure is usually symptom or indication to strokes, heart attacks, heart failure and even arterial aneurysm.

As they say "prevention is better than cure", so we have to be aware or we need to monitor our blood pressure for us to be equip and start to live a healthy lifestyle. We have to control our blood pressure to stay healthy. To better monitor our blood pressure we need to have sphygmomanometer and stethoscope at home.
Sphygmomanometer is define by a certain dictionary as " an instrument for measuring blood pressure in the arteries, especially one consisting of a pressure gauge and a rubber gauge and a rubber cuff that wraps around the arm and inflates to constrict the arteries." Stethoscope is a medical device to listen to internal sound of the body such as the heart sounds. On the other hand, many people does not know how to use it. Thank goodness to modern technology, digital and more accurate blood pressure monitor are available. We do not have to be an expert or a medical professional to monitor our blood pressure.

Also we need to choose our food we eat. We should eat the right kind of foods such as vegetables and fruits. It would be better if we eat organically grown vegetables and fruits. Let us be aware, know our blood pressure, eat more vegetables and fruits and be healthy!
