High Blood Pressure Demo Newsletter
This week we have interesting info: Did you know that a small cluster of cells is responsible for controlling blood pressure? Also, sleep apnea has negative effects on blood pressure, lowering the risk of heart attack by walking or cycling, ways to reduce salt intake, magnesium shortage related to hypertension, poor sleep related to heart disease, neutralizing the effects of excess drinking through exercise (not for abuse), sound-based therapy for treating hypertension, how beta-blockers control heart attacks and hypertension, tinnitus treatment can lead to high blood pressure, and more.
Negative Effects Of Sleep Apnea On Blood Pressure
Sleep apnea occurs when the air passage in the body is interrupted when sleeping, resulting in a loud snoring and in breathing interruptions which can last from ten seconds to one minute. This leads to poor sleeping and a sense of fatigue on the next day. Among its consequences are high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and a high risk of heart attack, depression and diabetes. Check the full list. More here.
Lower The Risk Of Heart Attack By 50% By Walking Or Cycling
A study has shown that people with moderate activity, such as walking or bicycling reduces the risk of a heart attack in almost 50%. It is suggested to increase the activity in a progressive way, limiting it to 150 minutes of weekly activity. More here.
Check These Ways To Reduce Salt Intake
It is well known that excess salt intake is related to high blood pressure. The main component of salt is sodium, which together with potassium, are necessary for the body processes. The danger occurs when there is excess sodium. There are ways to control this, such as eating fruits and vegetables rich in potassium to balance the sodium. Also, replace the salt with herbs when cooking. More details here.
Magnesium Shortage Leads To High Blood Pressure
Magnesium is a fundamental mineral for the proper functioning of the body. It is necessary for the operation of more than 300 enzymes. Also it is essential for the activity of muscles and nerves, hormones, immune system, and food processing. Low magnesium intake has serious consequences. Among them are high blood pressure, diabetes, migraine headache. Also there are fatigue, confusion, anxiety, muscle cramps, nausea, among others. Check all the list. More here.
Study: Small Cluster Of Cells Responsible For Controlling Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is usually treated with medicines and a change of habits. However, it has been discovered that a small cluster of cells located near the carotid artery can cause high blood pressure. Researches removed this body the size of a rice grain and it resulted in an immediate drop in blood pressure. Apparently, this body monitors the oxygen level in the blood, informing the brain to increase the blood pressure, and this monitoring can give false readings. More details here.
Poor Sleeping Related To Heart Disease
Heart disease can be detected if the patient has chest pain and breathing difficulty. Researchers have found another sign, the desire to go to bed early, and these patients have poor sleeping due to tossing and turning in bed. Other signs are severe headaches, fatigue and vision problems, among others. More here.
Exercise Can Neutralize The Effects Of Excessive Drinking… But Do Not Abuse
Drinking has many health hazards, including liver disease, heart problems, high blood pressure, among others. However, a recent study suggest that exercise can counteract the effects of alcohol. It showed that heavy drinkers that exercised were healthier that those that did not exercise. What would be the correct amount of exercise? More here.
Hypertension Treatment Though Sound-Based Therapy
There is a new therapy based on sound that is showing positive effects on controlling high blood pressure and migraine. It reads brain activity using sensors in the scalp. This activity is transformed in audible tones and immediately reflected into the brain. The treatment has also proved effective for insomnia. More details here.
This Is How Panic Attacks And Heart Attacks Are Controlled By Beta-Blockers
Beta-blockers are drugs that block the effect of the chemicals adrenaline and norepinephrine. These substances are responsible for changes in the cardiovascular system as a reaction to stress or danger. However, in some people, these changes are frequent, leading to high blood pressure and increasing the risk of heart attacks. More here.
Tinnitus Alleviated By ‘Love Hormone’, But It Increases Blood Pressure
Recent studies have shown that spraying oxytocin in the nose can provide relief from tinnitus. Oxytocin is called the “love hormone” because it promotes social interactions. However, there are side effects that have been identified, such as variations in blood pressure, and nausea, among others. More details here.
