Your Heart And High Blood Pressure

To understand the link between your heart and high blood pressure disorder, we first need to know what blood pressure is and how it can affect the function of body organs including your heart.

Abnormal pressure of blood in your blood vessels is called hypertension or high blood pressure.

It is known as a silent killer since most of the time it does not show any symptoms and silently damages your body.

Understanding Your Heart

Your heart is a muscular organ like any other organs in your body and is responsible for pumping blood to every part of your body.

Blood contains essential substances which are needed by different parts of your body to work successfully.

Your heart can only perform its job when it has sufficient supply of energy, oxygen and nutrients.

When supply of any of these is interrupted a heart stroke or heart attack happens.

How Hypertension Causes Heart Troubles

Types of blood vessels called coronary vessels are responsible for bringing oxygen and nutrients to your heart in order for it to function properly. Your heart is covered with these arteries and any clot or shrinkage in them can bring permanent damage to your heart.

With hypertension, blood arteries cannot pass blood easily and as a result your heart has to work harder to pump your blood.

With more effort required for pumping blood, the size of your heart becomes larger than usual and thus needs more energy to continue its job. As blood vessels, including coronary vessels are unable to conduct proper blood flow it gets narrower with high blood pressure, your heart runs out of oxygen-rich blood which results in a heart attack.

Tips Of The Month - Protective Measures

Your heart and high blood pressure treatment are highly proportional as with each blood pressure elevation your heart is getting dangerously affected.

In order to prevent serious damage to your heart, essential measures need to be taken, include:

  • Monitor your blood pressure regularly which is highly important.
  • Change eating habits as high carbohydrate, high sodium and high fat diets are extremely dangerous for your heart.
  • Try natural remedies to cure high blood pressure naturally.
  • If advised medication, always take it as prescribed by your physician.
  • Arm yourself with plenty of water, raw vegetables, roots, herbs and fruits.
  • Smoking can be fatal in high blood pressure.
  • If there is any difficulty breathing or a moderately high pain in your chest, immediately consult your doctor.
  • Avoid stress and indulge yourself in healthy physical and mental activities.
