1 in 5 Adults suffer from High Blood Pressure
There are a number of extremely common disorders that take a very heavy effect on the lives of many adults and High Blood Pressure ranks high on the list.
According to the World Health Organization, more than 1 in 5 adults suffer from High Blood Pressure; and, according to the American Chiropractic Association, in the US alone, 31 million people experience lower-back pain at any given time.
High Blood Pressure, or Hypertension, happens when the blood that the heart pumps pushes against the walls of the arteries with high pressure. As the blood pressure goes higher, the heart must go along with it, pumping blood into the arteries at increased levels. This can cause severe damage to the heart, or even heart failure. Also, blood clogging and forming aneurysms can lead to strokes.
Hypertension is caused by several factors, including poor eating habits (with an abuse of sodium and sugars) that induce it, and lack of cardiovascular exercise, among others. While there are many Allopathic methods to treat this disease, it is always recommended that you seek the help of a Board Certified naturopathic professional who uses natural integrative methods. Diet for example may focus only on one area of our system and exercise may help to reverse many of the adverse effects, but do any of these treat the root cause of the health problem? For too long our society has focused on treating the symptoms but the key to living free from these ailments is in addressing what causes them.
Obviously, when seeking professional help you want to find a naturopathic doctor that focuses on eliminating your high blood pressure rather than simply treating it. If you are suffering from any signs of high blood pressure we invite you to call Dr. Gail Ravello a naturopathic and integrative doctor (PhD IMD ND MH) for an appointment at (770) 674-6311 at Natural Medical Solutions Wellness Center, where we will be more than happy to help you with natural medical solutions for high blood pressure, adrenal fatigue, thyroid, hormonal, allergies, or any other health issues that are weighing on you.
