Natural Hypertension Alternatives in Houston
In case you haven’t heard, hypertension is like a silent killer hiding in your body, making the blood vessels in your heart and brain harder, stiffer, and even narrower.
Hypertension is also referred to as high blood pressure. It is determined both by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries.
Blood pressure is determined both by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. Blood Pressure is a common condition in which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease.
Beta Blockers and Side Effects
Beta-blockers treat high blood pressure and other conditions, such as heart problems, and also reduce your blood pressure. The common drugs are Atenolol, metoprolol (Toprol and Lopressor), and propranolol, which all come with their share of side effects, some potentially dangerous.
In people who have high blood pressure, beta-blockers may reduce signs of blood pressure, such as rapid heartbeat. It’s important to check your hypertension regularly if you have high blood pressure and you’re taking a beta-blocker. Common side effects of beta-blockers can include cold hands or feet, depression, and weight gain.
Hypertension Factors and Symptoms
Hypertension is generally treated by altering lifestyle factors including diet, smoking, and exercise habits. Side effects of hypertension include: poor circulation, cold extremities, fatigue, dizziness, insomnia, nausea; sexual dysfunction, depression, and precipitation of asthma.
Your brain depends on a nourishing blood supply to work properly. But high blood pressure can cause several problems. Feeling tired may be connected to high blood pressure itself. It may also be a symptom of a coexisting condition. Your blood vessels and major arteries carry blood throughout the body and supply it to vital organs and tissue. Complications such as a heart attack can stop it from being able to pump blood through your body effectively. Hypertension has been shown to carry an increased risk not only for cerebrovascular morbidity and mortality but also for cognitive impairment and dementia. Other complications that arise include:
- Heart attack
- Heart failure
- Kidney complications
- Metabolic syndrome (diabetes, heart disease and stroke)
- Trouble with memory or understanding
Improving the management of hypertension can now offer new opportunities to reduce age-related disease in older people and to promote healthy aging.
