Hypertension

hypertensionWhat is Hypertension?
Hypertension, or high blood pressure, consists of persistent elevated blood pressure and is the force of blood pushing against blood vessel walls. Its danger lies in the fact that it causes the heart to work harder leading to hardening of the arteries and heart failure.

Reading Blood Pressure Measurements
• Normal Blood Pressure: Less than 120 over 80
• Prehypertension: 120-139 over 80-89
• Stage 1 High Blood Pressure: 140-159 over 90-99
• Stage 2 High Blood Pressure: 160 and above and over 100 and above

Probably the best treatment for hypertension comes out of the 1998 Nobel Prize in Medicine which said when the muscles surrounding an artery have enough protein they can make a gas called nitrous oxide. When nitrous oxide is created, it causes the blood vessel to expand when the blood vessel is expanded, blood pressure drops. Most doctors attempt to get the patient’s blood pressure to drop to the normal 120/80 range regardless of the age and condition of the individual patient. Studies have actually shown an increase in heart attacks, strokes and death in people over 50 when pressure was lowered to 120/80.

The 5-year, nine thousand patient, Cochran study, released in October, 2012, noted no increase in heart attacks, strokes or deaths in those with blood pressure in the 140-160 over 90-99 when not treated. Because we are aiming at the route of the problem, Young Foundational Health Center’s practice for many years has been to get the muscles to produce the nitrous oxide necessary to eliminate hypertension naturally.
