Hello Dear Friends...
Just an important message on the culprit thing called the silent killer!
High Blood Pressure
I have learned so many new things about Blood Pressure;
When I first started feeling really weird and I had no idea as to what was causing it!
I was very concerned and a little frightened...
When you have never felt a certain way before, and you can
I could hear a rushing sound in my ears when I laid down!
Thankfully, I was feeling a bit under the weather so I went
To my doctor, I think it was God's providence!
They took my blood pressure reading and it was very high!
Then by the weekend I was in the ER with an off the chart high reading.
They did nothing for me they just assured me I was not dying!
They just did not want me to stroke out (really)
And as it was on a Sunday, that was the only place to go!
They told me to go to see my physician in the morning;
So I went to my doctor first thing in the morning...
As I tend to believe that diet and lifestyle will cure anything!
I googled everything
I kid you not I was convinced eating celery would cure me.
Firstly, I want to mention that some high blood pressure;
Is completely from genetics...
Before we think that all blood pressure can be completely
Controlled by diet or supplements!
These things can help control it, but not make it go away, if it is genetics!
They gave me some medication for it!
I was never so glad to take a medication in my life.
Also, there are different kinds of medicines they give.
ll receptor blockers
Calcium channel blockers
Nervous system inhibitors
They put me on the ACE inhibitors
ACE stands for angiotensin-converting enzyme.
This class of drugs inhibits production of the hormone angiotensin
Which usually causes blood vessels to narrow,
Thereby increasing the pressure inside
Just another curve in the road called life...
Hope you are all doing well and learning new things,
And taking pleasure in your days...
I so appreciate all of you that come and visit me and leave a comment!
I realize we are all so very busy, and it does take time to respond!
