   Home      High Blood Pressure
According to recent estimates, about one in three U.S. adults has high blood pressure, but because there are no symptoms, nearly one-third of these people don't know they have it. In fact, many people have high blood pressure for years without knowing it. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure. This is why high blood pressure is often called the "silent killer."
High blood pressure symptoms are often acute in human beings. They include sudden dizziness, flushed faces, nervousness, severe headaches, restlessness, difficult breathing, nose bleeding, insomnia, intestinal complaints, depression, short temper and emotional instability. The diagnosis of high blood pressure is done when the normal pressure tends to repeatedly rise. The other physical symptoms of high blood pressure includes constant tendency to urinate, decrease in eye vision and muscle weakness.
There are many treatments for high blood pressure. The most common form of treatment, which is highly effective for most patients, is that of a drug regimen. Pharmacological intervention can reduce blood pressure quickly and effectively, however it should be known that some patients do not tolerate medications designed to treat high blood pressure well, or would prefer to avoid prescription drugs when possible, and for these people, acupuncture for high blood pressure may be one avenue to consider. It is proved that acupuncture can effectively bring your blood pressure down to the normal levels. Apart from curing your hypertension (HPN) problem, acupuncture also promotes the healing of other problems related to your heart. With acupuncture you can keep healthy for a longer life.
