The effort that the heart spends to pump the blood is called Blood Pressure or, in other words, the pressure made by blood on the arterial walls is called the blood pressure. We call the power that our heart uses when it gushes into the veins on the left side of the blood vessels systolic pressure. When the process of blood drawing from the heart to the vessel is completed, the remaining press is also called diastolic pressure
In the context of today’s information, the normal accepted blood pressure is 120/80 mmHg. Exceeding 140/90 mmHg is considered Hypertension. The intervening values are called Pre-Hypertension or Masked Tension.
Blood pressure depends on several factors:
- The amount of blood circulating in the gutter
- The diameter of the vessel veins
- The power of our heart
- Resistance to the flow of the river
- It depends on the darkness / visibility of the blood.
Again, we need to pressure on a certain level so that the blood can circulate in the veins. Veins have the ability to flex. When the circulating blood’s physical volume decreases (for example, the amount of water in it), the width of the veins shrinks in the name of conservation of the circulating fluid. The most important factor in preserving the pressure is the diameter of the vein, as you see it depends on the amount of blood circulating in the vein in this factor. As the diameter decreases, the pressure increases. As the vessel expands, the pressure decreases.
How is pressure maintained when the volume of blood in the veins does not change?
When the body is faced with such a situation, it reacts by increasing the speed of the heart and maintaining the pressure in the circulation.
Now let’s take a look at the physiological process that takes place in the organism in the light of the information we now know. When we do not take the water to our body, 8% water is drawn from our body, along with the other sacrificial organs to protect the brain and other vital organs. In other words, the physical volume of the blood forming the circulating fluid drops by 8%, resulting in a natural physiological response that reduces the radius of the veins and narrows the veins. As the life goes on, even if the body does not take enough water, that is, even if the physical volume of the blood falls, the nutrients, oxygen, etc. have to go to the cells. The only thing to do in this case is to increase the heart rate.
The body slowly comes to a deadlock. Because of the decrease in blood volume, the decrease of the radius of the vein in response to this, the blood flow becomes difficult due to the friction against the blood flow due to the vessel narrowing. The power that our heart needs, which is vigorous with blood pumping around and the pressure in the veins increases. Because of this, we feel a tightness in the chest especially in oxygen-free environments.
Reasons for High Tension
- Decreased water consumption
- Overweight or obesity
- Physical activity deficiency,
- Too much refined salt in the diet
- Alcohol consumption
- Advanced age
- Family history of hypertension
- Chronic kidney disease
- Adrenal and thyroid disorders
We can generally review hypertension under two headings:
-Essential Hypertension (etiology not evident at 95%)
-Secondary Hypertension: There is an underlying cause (kidney disease, excessive amount of hormones that increase the blood pressure due to tumor of the adrenal gland, birth control pills (especially estrogen), increase pregnancy blood pressure).
Blood pressure increases with age together. The only reason for the decrease in age rate in the last few years is due to not drinking enough water. Of course, there are a number of side effects besides this actual cause. These include nutritional errors, inactivity, stress, environmental pollution, overweight, diabetes, and smoking.
If we want to increase the amount of water in blood, we need to drink water first. We need to consume unrefined salt in order for water to reach the water cells and to protect the osmosis phenomenon. However, some medicines that lower blood pressure try to urinate to reduce the rate of water and salt in the organism.
Hypertension drugs and their effects?
- Beta blockers: They aim to lower the blood pressure by lowering the heart rate. Remember, life is ongoing and our hearts feel the need to increase in speed to meet the needs of the body. What happens if we lower the heart rate, since the body’s oxygen and matter needs cannot be met adequately, there will be a constant fatigue. It also causes bronchitis to swell in the lungs, which provide blood oxygenation and work according to the heart rhythm.
- Thiazide diuretics: By increasing urine production through the kidneys, the blood tries to reduce the amount of water that makes up the physical volume. As the amount of water decreases, the blood pressure falls. Remember, of course, the decrease in the physical volume of the blood means shrink of the radius of the vessel, and the resultant increase in blood pressure, because the tissues are waiting for the nutrient / oxygen. In this case, the drug will be increased continuously, until the body gets stuck. The medicine pulls down the curious water, the diameter decreases as the water decreases, the blood pressure increases as the diameter decreases, the amount of the medicine increases as the blood pressure increases etc. this goes on till the body is completely dry.
- Calcium antagonists: A group of drugs that aim to expand blood vessels and also to lower blood pressure by lowering heart rate.
- ACE-I: The drug group acting in two directions weakens the resistance of the veins, while on the other side it tries to lower the blood pressure by discharging the amount of water and salt with urine. The process is again the same, the devil circle is getting smaller and smaller.
Does it solve the problem of numerically lowering the blood pressure level, or does depriving the tissues of the nutrients / oxygen they need in the long run lead to problems in the metabolism of those tissues?
NO WE DO NOT DO THIS
How do we get rid of high tension?
-The first thing we need to do is give the body water and the real (unrefined) salt to him
-With the sportive action, the radius of the veins widens and the resistance against the blood circulation is removed and our heart does not need to exert more pressure to ensure blood circulation.
-Smoking causes arterial sclerosis (atherosclerosis), which means that the elasticity of the artery is disappearing and consequently the blood pressure adjustment is impaired, think about the rest!
In fact, all diseases begin as a consequence of the inability to send blood, oxygen, water, minerals and other essential substances, which are needed by a single cell, to be delivered to that cell, and remove the waste matter (allergen, toxins). A number of signals are emitted from the body as a result of the errors that occur in metabolism (E.g. fever, excessive sweating, fetor oris, nausea, constant fatigue, bowel problems etc.) The mistake starts here. We suppress these distress calls with pain killers, antifebriles, antiallergens etc. assuming them as illnesses. However, what needs to be done is to help the body through healing by activating its inner mechanisms. We believe that the healing of the patient will only result in the treatment of body, emotion, thought / subconscious and spirit as a whole. Hypertension is such kind of disease and in our clinic, not a single treatment, but a lot of methods together is the goal of success.
