May 17th is designated World Hypertension Day. Established to raise awareness of the conditions cause by high blood pressure such as stroke, heart and kidney diseases caused by high blood pressure levels, World Hypertension Day also aims to highlight solutions that can help people lead healthier lives.
What is Hypertension?
Your blood pressure level is a way of measuring the force that your heart uses to pump blood around your entire body. It is quite natural for your blood pressure to change as you go throughout the day. It is when it stays too high consistently when it is known as ‘hypertension’. Many people have high blood pressure without realising as there are no symptoms and are therefore at greater risk of heart disease and strokes. If you think you may be affected, please contact your doctor.
‘Hypertension causes almost 62% of all strokes’
High blood pressure affects in the region of one in three people around the world, causing heart disease, stroke and kidney disease and diabetes. It affects over sixteen million in the United Kingdom and over fifty million people across the United States. Unfortunately, in 90% of cases of ‘primary’ or ‘essential’ hypertension, doctors are unable to find a physical cause – and that’s where the Hypnotension™ programme may help.
