Symptoms of High Blood Pressure By James Meschino, DC, MS, ND What are the symptoms of high blood pressure?Usually there are no symptoms; that’s the problem. That’s why high blood pressureis often labeled â€˜the silent killer’. People who have high blood pressure typicallydon’t even know that they have until they get an annual physical exam and it’s discoveredthen. That’s why it’s important to have an annual physical examination from your physician.Sometimes when you r blood pressure is markedly
high, I mean really elevated, people willbegin to notice headaches, dizziness or blurred vision, they might get some nausea or vomiting,or even some chest pains or shortness of breath. When you have high blood pressure, what’shappening behind the scenes is what’s most dangerous. It’s increasing your risk fora premature heart attack, heart failure, a stroke, kidney failure, eye damage that couldlead to blindness and damage of the peripheral blood vessels that can lead to decreased bloodflow to your feet, hands and possibly even leading to amputation at some point, especiallyif the person is a diabetic. Also, the pressure on the vessels can causeout pouching or serious aneurisms that can
rupture. About one percent of people who havehigh blood pressure have what’s known as malignant hypertension and malignant highblood pressure. This is when the lower number in your blood pressure reading is as highas say 140; that diastolic pressure would be considered malignant hypertension, being140 or higher. And with that there are often headaches, nausea, vomiting and strokelikesymptoms. The big risk is if there is bleeding in the brain you could have a stroke or somekind of hemorrhage in the brain, which has got to be controlled.The bottom line is high blood pressure is often unrecognized for years and it producesno symptoms. But behind the scenes, it’s
causing damage to the heart and other organs,to the eyes and to the blood vessels that can really lead to some serious problems downthe road.

How To Overcome High Blood Pressure Naturally
Hey guys, Axe here, founder of DrAxe and of Functional Medicine. Today I’m going to be sharing with you my top foodsand supplements for overcoming high blood pressure. Believe it or not, blood pressureis something that can be easily balanced out if you follow the steps here that I’m goingto talk about in this tutorial. First, let’s talk about what causes high bloodpressure. Most of the time when you’re reading online or in the media today, you’re goingto see things like excess sodium consumption, emotional stress, poor diet, and lack of exercise.Those are four of the big ones that people say may be causing high blood pressure.
Let’s start off talking about diet. What isthe best diet for blood pressure? There are three specific nutrients you want to makesure that you’re getting in your diet if you have high blood pressure. Those include potassium,antioxidants, as well as omega3 fatty acids. In fact, if I had to throw a fourth one inthere I would say magnesium. If you can add those four nutrients into your diet and eatfoods that are high in those substances, you’re going to see your blood pressure really balanceout there very quickly. That’s going to be a diet that’s high in fruits, vegetables,sprouted nuts and seeds, and organic, wildcaught meats.
One of the things you may do after watchingthis tutorial is go to my site, DrAxe , do a search for potassium rich foods, magnesiumrich foods, and omega3 rich foods. If you go and look at those food lists, you’ll seethings like avocados are packed with magnesium and potassium. Doing guacamole would be greatfor you or consuming chia seeds or wildcaught salmon or other foods like that. Figs aresuper high in potassium as well. Again, I would go online and look up foods that arereally high in potassium, magnesium, omega3 fatty acids, and antioxidants as well. Wehave actually all of those top ten lists there on DrAxe . That should be diet.
Some things you want to avoid, diet wise,when you’re following a healthy blood pressure diet is avoid excess sodium intake. You don’twant to overdo the salt. A little bit of sea salt is fine, but definitely stay away fromthe processed iodized salt. Really eliminating processed sugar. Processed sugar will definitelycause your blood pressure to spike. Then, of course, processed and fast foods that containhydrogenated oils, we know those are inflammatory to the body. That inflammation in the arterieswill cause blood pressure to rise and actually will cause high cholesterol as well. Again,you get those foods out, add in those mineral and vitamin rich foods, and you’re going tosee immediate results in your blood pressure.
Then in terms of the best supplements to naturallytreat blood pressure, I want to go over the top ones here. The first one would be fishoil. Fish oil is high in omega3 fatty acids. Those omega3 fatty acids, called EPA andDHA, are highly antiinflammatory. We know that high blood pressure is in part causedby inflammation. If you can start adding in wildcaught fish into your diet and takinga good quality fish oil supplement at about 1000 milligrams a day, you will see resultsvery quickly in your blood pressure. The second most important supplement to takefor blood pressure is magnesium. Magnesium helps relax your blood vessel walls and improvescirculation and reduces stress in your body.
All of those things are benefits of takingmagnesium which will naturally lower blood pressure. Typically, you want to take 250milligrams of magnesium 2 times a day. I recommend a magnesium chelate supplement when you takethat. The third supplement you may want to considertaking if you have high blood pressure is Coenzyme Q10. This is absolutely essentialas well if you’ve ever taken a cholesterol lowering medication. Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidantthat supports heart health and circulation. It also acts as an antioxidant. Again, CoenzymeQ10, about 200 milligrams a day is a great supplement for helping blood pressure issues.
