Hypertension? It’s called the silent killer, and for good reason. Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, has no symptoms.


One in every 3 American adults has hypertension and half aren’t’ even aware they have the condition. Blood pressures is the measure of blood flow pushing against the artery walls; when this pressure stays elevated over time, it can lead to serious long term damage.

Ideally it should range from 90/60 to 120/80 mm Hg. The upper number (systolic) measures the pressure in the heart when the heart contracts. The bottom number (diastolic) measures pressure between heartbeats, when heart is briefly at rest.

High blood pressure is anything consistently over 140/90 mm Hg. Causes: too many processed foods, trans fats, added sugars and general lack of nutrition, little or no exercise, and living with too much stress.
