High blood pressure is sometimes called the “silent killer” and is feared by many. According to the 2017 American Heart Association guidelines, when blood pressure It is measured in a stable, unstable state and is read significantly more than three times in two consecutive weeks, a person is considered to be suffering from pain. High blood pressure (Increased blood pressure).

Once diagnosed, simply lowering blood pressure is not the only goal. Similarly, the important thing is to find the cause. When the cause is resolved, the “silent killer” is replaced by a “helper” to alert you to your health condition.

There are many causes of high blood pressure. Anger, nervousness, fear, shrugging shoulders and cold weather are all contributing factors.

1. Ways to resolve high blood pressure due to an angry or stressful environment

Some people get angry more easily than others – even when watching TV, their emotions can be heightened, resulting in outward expressions of anger such as a red face, neck swelling and anger. This phenomenon is caused by the hyperactivity of the sympathetic nerves, causing the peripheral blood vessels to dilate. In this condition, blood cannot deliver oxygen directly to all parts of the body, causing high blood pressure.

There was once a patient in her 50s, who was slightly overweight and whose blood pressure readings were consistently around 200. After trying six different Western antihypertensive drugs with no results, she came to me for treatment. After treatment, her blood pressure dropped to 140 or 150. She told the crowd that she was very happy, “Dr. Hu cured my high blood pressure problem.

At that time, I told her, “Your high blood pressure was cured by you, not by me.” why? “The medicine I have prescribed for you is a sedative. So you are adjusting your mood, and you will be happy every day. Once you reach the ‘don’t be angry, feel good’ state, the high blood pressure will go away on its own.

2 teas to relieve mood and lower blood pressure

The following two teas help to calm your mood, make you feel calm and happy.

Chrysanthemum tea

Put 10 pieces of chrysanthemum in a pot and boil it with hot water. Whether yellow, white or wild chrysanthemums, they are all good. Drink the tea after the chrysanthemums are fully absorbed, spread and emit a pleasant aroma. To make the drink more attractive and increase the desire to drink more, add a little lilly or wolf.

Licorice jujube decoction

This is one of the patients mentioned above.

Boil 1500 cc (about 3.2 pints) of water in a pot, four maqus (about 0.52 oz) of licorice, 1 tael (about 1.33 oz) of wheat, and 12 red dates to 1000 cc (about 2.1 pints). Drink it as tea every day.

Note: It is better to choose “floating wheat”, that is, wheat that has been stored for a long time.

Exercise daily to increase your happiness index

Exercise causes blood vessels to relax, and once the blood vessels are dilated, blood can flow more efficiently, flushing cholesterol out of the blood vessels at the same time. If the blood circulation in the large blood vessels is normal, the blood pressure will decrease. Moreover, during exercise, the brain produces hormones called endorphins – the so-called “happy hormones” that make people happier and lower blood pressure.

How do people who are so busy at home and work find time to exercise? The benefits of daily exercise can be cumulative. For example, while riding the bus on the way to work, get off one stop early and walk the rest of the way. Or spend five or six minutes walking up and down some stairs on your way to lunch. At the end of the working day and after dinner, take a walk. That way, at the end of the day, you’ve saved up about 30 minutes of exercise—and plenty of ways to get better.

You can also “ground” negative energy in the body by wearing soft, cloth shoes, socks, or going barefoot and walking on grass or dirt. In this way, in addition to doing some physical activity, the blood supply in the brain also increases. When there is enough oxygen, blood pressure naturally decreases.

2. Touch 3 acupoints to relieve high blood pressure with a stiff neck.

Neck and shoulder strain is another cause of increased blood pressure.

For example, many office workers spend their days in a “turtle-neck” position in front of a computer screen and have to sit for hours on end. When they get home, they lie on the couch – not moving – or with their heads bent over their phones, contributing to neck and shoulder stiffness, which in turn leads to high blood pressure.

I have another patient who goes to the hospital for a check-up and every time his blood pressure is around 200, he always feels uncomfortable after taking the cholesterol-lowering or blood-pressure-lowering drugs prescribed by the doctor. Blood vessel dilatation. Later, I helped him dilate the carotid artery, and the high blood pressure went away.

There is an acupoint for neck and shoulder strength, the Chize (LU 5) acupoint. Gently press the cheese point on the left and right hands for 3 to 5 minutes daily and shake and move the neck while pressing. In this way, the blood circulation in the neck is improved, and the blood in the carotid artery flows to the brain. If the blood supply is sufficient, the blood pressure will naturally decrease.

In addition to cheese, two other points can improve blood circulation. One is Zhuzanli (ST 36) and the other is Sanyingjiao (SP 6).

In addition, people who cannot press the acupuncture points properly can also use the touch method. By hitting the upper part of the acupoint and touching the lower part, you can sometimes hit the right acupoint, and the result is very good.

Note: Pregnant women should avoid massaging or touching the Sanyinjao point.

3. Cold Type Blood Pressure: Keep your body warm

Cold weather can cause high blood pressure.

During the cold season, in order to maintain the heat in the body, the blood vessels around the body shrink, that is, they become thinner and their size decreases. This reduces the flow of blood around the body, and because most of the blood stays in the large blood vessels, it keeps the blood pressure high.

what to do? Wear warm clothes and drink warm drinks. This helps narrow blood vessels to return to their normal width, then blood is sent equally to all blood vessels and lowers blood pressure without blood pressure drugs.
