definitions. People often wonder what’s the difference between “high blood pressure
and “hypertension”? The truth is, They’re just different names
for the same thing. Now, You might have seen that blood pressure
always has two numbers, for example, 120 over 80. The bigger number is called “systolic”
and the smaller number is called “diastolic.” “Systolic” is the maximum pressure when
your heart contracts. “Diastolic” is the lowest pressure when
your heart relaxes. For example, if your blood pressure is: “120
over 80” This means that the highest pressure when
your heart beats is 120 and the lowest when it relaxes is 80. Sometimes you might see “mmHg” next to
a blood pressure reading – this stands for millimeters of Mercury – it’s just the
scientific way to measure pressure. So, please take a moment to look at this blood
pressure definition chart: For example, if your blood pressure is:
115 over 75, that’s “normal.” 125 over 85, “pre-hypertension”
145 over 95, “hypertension” High blood pressure is a key risk factor for
heart attacks and heart failure, aneurisms and strokes, kidney failure and more… Even blood pressure that’s moderately high
shortens your life expectancy. Because High Blood Pressure usually has no
symptoms, millions of people have high blood pressure and don’t know it – that’s
why it’s often called “The Silent Killer.” The only way to check for high blood pressure
is to have a test done – now don’t worry it’s simple, fast & painless and there’s
no needles involved. If you do have high blood pressure, there
are many natural, clinically proven ways to get it down without medications. Plus, you should know that taking blood pressure
medications doesn’t “cure” high blood pressure. The pills might lower your blood
pressure, but they just cover up the actual true cause of the high blood pressure and
have many side effects. To learn more about natural ways to lower

  1. what does the word essential mean, in the term essential high blood pressure? do you need your pressure high for an underlying condition? if so could lowering it cause a stroke or heart attack? im thinking narrowing arteries and the extra pressure gives the extra push to get the blood through,then add the drugs and now no extra push.?essential?
