Most of the time, high blood pressure (HBP, or hypertension) has no obvious symptoms. Many people with high blood pressure don’t even know they have it.
The best way to protect yourself is being aware of the risks and making changes that matter.
High blood pressure develops slowly over time and can be related to many dietary and lifestyle mistakes people are making unknowingly or may be knowingly!
There is not much that can be done about your genetics but you can certainly take your health in your own hands by controlling your environment, i.e. your diet and lifestyle.
High blood pressure can be managed effectively through lifestyle changes in conjunction with medical intervention. We need an integrative approach.
I would urge all of you to do all what you can to avoid this serious health condition that can be playing the role of a silent killer in your life!
In this blog, I will be demystifying some of the common myths and facts about blood pressure!
Let’s dive in…
High blood pressure runs in my family. There is nothing I can do about it!
I don’t have any symptoms I feel fine. I don’t have to worry about high blood pressure! I’m good.
High blood pressure is over 140/90 mm Hg
I have hypertension and I get my BP checked at the doctor’s office every month. I don’t need to worry about checking it every day at home.
My blood pressure is in the normal range today, so I don’t need to take my BP lowering medications today.
I don’t need to worry about blood pressure, if I’m young.
High blood pressure is more common in men. I don’t need to worry!
If I’m on blood pressure medication, I don’t have to be too worried about exercise or watch what I eat.
I don’t use table salt, so I’m in control of my sodium intake and my blood pressure.
Wine is good for the heart, which means I should drink wine every day, as much as I want, no worries!!!!
Fats and lipids clog the arteries and lead to atherosclerosis & CVD but there is no connection between sugar and heart disease!
It’s ok to use sea salt instead of regular table salt if you have hypertension.
