Causes, Symptoms, Types, and Homeopathic Treatment for Blood Pressure
Blood Pressure or BP is one of the most common and a long-term condition observed in many specifically, affecting the elderly. Blood pressure is a condition that refers to the force of your blood thrusting against your artery walls, which can even cause other health problems like heart conditions which can vary from minor heart attacks to major cardiac arrests which are life-threatening and strokes which can sometimes paralyze you or at times could even kill you. In this article we will be knowing about the causes, symptoms, types and Homeopathy treatment for Blood Pressure.
You would be aware of people saying that they have got a low BP or high BP, which is nothing but referring to the blood pressure level. BP refers to the pressure of blood circulating within the large arteries. This is a significant factor related to the heartbeat and the proper functioning of the heart.
Blood pressure is commonly measured using two numbers referring to the First number (Systolic Blood Pressure) and Second number (Diastolic Blood Pressure). The normal blood pressure level of an individual should be less than 120/80. The values are known as Systole and Diastole. If your blood pressure measurement reads 120/80, where 120 refers to Systole and 80 refers to Diastole.
First Number: First Number, also known as Systolic Blood Pressure, measures the pressure in the arteries when the heart beats. Blood is pumped through the arteries and to the rest of the body and this force creates pressure on the walls of these arteries when your heart beats.
Second Number: Second Number, also known as Diastolic Blood pressure, refers to the measures of the pressure in the arteries when the heart rests between the beats. It is at this time our heart fills with blood and gets oxygen that is necessary for the bodily functions.
Not every individual reads the normal blood pressure. Some people would be having more or less than the normal, which refers to Hypertension commonly known as High Blood Pressure, or Hypotension commonly known as Low Blood Pressure.
This distinguishing between high and low Blood pressure is based on the expected level of Blood Pressure.
Hypertension is commonly referred to as high BP. It is called high BP or Hypertension when the normal level turns high, i.e., the normal BP, which is 120/80 changes to over 140/over 90.
Hypertension shows symptoms only when it is severe. This is the reason why many people with hypertension or high BP don’t know that they have the condition, until and unless they go for the check-ups.
