					High blood pressure is called the silent disease. Even though it is
one of the most common diseases in America and affects 33% of
the population, many don’t know they have it. This is because high
blood pressure shows little to no symptoms.

Normal blood pressure vs. high blood pressure

According to the American Heart Association, normal blood
pressure is less than 120/80. If your blood pressure reading is
120-139/80-89, you’re in the pre-hypertension stage. If it reads
140-159/90-99, you have stage 1 high blood pressure. If it reads
160+/100+, you have stage 2 hypertension.

If your blood pressure is beyond the normal blood pressure range, you should immediately seek help.
High blood pressure is a potentially fatal disease. It makes the heart pump harder to supply blood to the
body and also causes arteries to harden. If you don’t address it immediately, it can lead to more serious
problems such as stroke, heart failure, and kidney failure.

Causes of high blood pressure

95% of high blood pressure cases have no identifiable cause. However, there are several factors that
may contribute to its development, including:

      Lack of physical activity: Inactivity increases your heart rate. This, in turn, makes your heart
       work harder in order to contract your muscles.

      Overweight: The greater your body mass, the more blood is required to transport oxygen and
       nutrients to your cells, tissues, muscles, and organs. Increase in blood flow puts more pressure
       on your arterial walls.

      Stress: Medical researchers believe that stress contributes to high blood pressure. Stress
       increases the amount of stress hormones released by the body to an unhealthy level.

      Smoking: Nicotine and other chemicals found in cigarettes damage arterial walls.

      Genetics: If someone in your family has high blood pressure, you are at risk for high blood
       pressure.

Other risk factors for high blood pressure are sodium intake, alcohol consumption, and old age. If you
believe you are at risk for high blood pressure, you should consult your physician. If you have been
diagnosed with the disease, consider natural high blood pressure help to improve your blood pressure.
