Control blood pressure and restrain hypertension

We mean by “Blood pressure” the pressure that our blood is exerting inside arteries and vessels and how it is pushing their walls when driving through them in the body.
Blood pressure is high when the heart beats and pumps the blood, and that is the systolic pressure phase. And when the heart rests, between two pumps, the pressure falls down and that’s the diastolic pressure phase.
Blood pressure may rise and falls during the time you live, and this is according to your daily statement. Pressure is at low level when sleeping, but raise when you wake up, it also raise when you get nervous, exited or when you make extra body efforts.
Blood pressure when high is called hypertension and Hypotension when is down under the normal. Both of hyper and hypo tensions are an illness and a risk for the health.
Uncontrolled hypertension can lead to major complications through the body, especially tire the heart and damage the kidney and small blood vessels throughout the body; it can also generate strokes and death. Those facts are mainly due to the excessive pressure that the blood is exerting on the walls of the arteries.
You can easily buy a digital or electronic stethoscope to control your blood pressure at home and it’s really easy to learn and to know how to use it. For any abnormal pressure, it will be safer to ask assistance from your nearest Doctor.
