Most people with high blood pressure have no symptoms at all. According to the scientists at the International Society for Hypertension, globally only half of those with hypertension are aware they have high blood pressure and the other half are going about their daily life happily unaware.
High blood pressure is the number one contributing factor for global death, associated in strokes, heart attacks and other cardiovascular complications in around 10 million deaths worldwide. Our blood pressure increases as we age as the vessels become less elastic and stretchy, so there’s more resistance.
There’s two kinds Hypertension, one caused by lifestyle, the other is caused by physical problems, often caused by a problem within the brain which controls blood pressure, or in the kidneys. Hypertension caused by physical problems cannot be helped by hypnotherapy, so please make sure you know which type you have before progressing with therapy, as medication is the only treatment for this type.
What causes hypertension?
Many things can cause a rise in blood pressure which are out of our control such as age, ethnicity, gender, genetics to studies with twins have shown that up to 40% of the variability in our blood pressure is dictated by genetic factors.
Such things which are in our control are salt intake, alcohol intake, caffeinated drinks (especially energy drinks), low levels of physical activity, obesity, smoking and diabetes. Smoking and diabetes don’t cause hypertension directly, but they cause damage to the small blood vessels in the body’s extremities can increase the resistance to blood flowing around the body, raising the diastolic part of the blood pressure measurement.
No wonder your blood pressure is high!
The state of our mental health also contributes to hypertension, raised levels of stress hormones in our daily life, and using unhealthy coping mechanisms such as unhealthy food, drink and drugs all add to hypertension.
