When your body is suffering from a serious condition
(like a High Blood Pressure/Hypertension), you need to take extra special
care of yourself. Fail to do so and you most likely will cause a
AFTER CARE: Here are some general rules of thumb that will help you to reduce your High Blood Pressure/Hypertension:
* * Special Instructions to Promote Circulatory Health * About HTN: Hypertension, better known as High Blood Pressure, is when a person's blood pressure is chronically elevated. Persistent HTN puts a person at risk for heart attacks, heart failure, strokes , aneurysms, and kidney failure.
* Risk Factors: People put themselves at risk for contracting Hypertension if they are routinely stressed, if their family members have had this condition, if they are obese, if their body has problems with processing salt or sugar, if they are over age 50, if they have chronic sleep disruptions, or if their kidneys are weak.* Spiritual Cause: Your high blood pressure is begging you to SLOW DOWN and loosen up! Take time to focus on enjoying life! Stop beating yourself up: the symptoms of Hypertension (HTN) were first described in the 6th century BCE! Doing the following things can help you RELAX and avoid circulatory failure!
* Forgive-Love-Live Happy: Unforgiveness of others and life's challenges is what fuels HTN. Do the "Three Part Harmony" exercise which helps you to let go of all that stresses you out and to focus on finding joy and experiencing harmony in your life.* Do a "Relaxation Process": Do this practice daily for an hour a day.
- Remember a time when you were the most relaxed (maybe on vacation, getting a massage, or spending time with a loved one).* Have "Predictability Time": Set aside time just for you where you...
- Do something you love without any interruptions from others.
- Get Vitamins "L" (Love) and "J" (Joy) every day.
* "Safe Space": Make a spot in your home which relaxes you...
- Spend as much time in that "home field energy" as possible.
* Internalize Compliments: Write down compliments others give you...
- Make a list of great things about yourself and review it daily.
* Dietary Restrictions: If you have HTN, eliminate sugar and salt from your diet.
Be on the lookout for "High Fructose Corn Syrup" which is in many processed foods. Remember that Sucrose and Fructose are other names for sugar and are very common food/drink additives. "Licorice Extracts" inside cough syrups, throat lozenges, and peptic ulcer tonics are also sugary. Monosodium glutamate (MSG) contains salt and is a very common food additive. Avoid alcohol at all costs.* Helpful Natural Supplements: These are: Vitamins B & C, Coleus Forskohlii, Hawthorne Berry, Garlic, Ginger, Olive Leaf Extract, and Valerian Root.
* Be On the Lookout for Warning Signs of High Blood Pressure
These are the same warning signs as for a Heart Attack.
