I worked pretty hard on my high blood pressure given that my bad reading at my brand-new doctors workplace recently. Steps I took included:
cut down on workout volume and strength a bit (possible overtraining) stop taking phenylephrineremember to drink more water (being slightly dehydrated can drive up blood pressure) do a much better job at quality of yoga and meditation
This combination helped a lot. This is the most affordable reading I got each day, the last one before bedtime. The numbers on the chart are just the days because the last go to:
It boiled down from a worst day of 164/88, extremely high (phase II high blood pressure) to a best of 120/64, typical. However here is the chart for the greatest reading of the day, on developing in the morning:
This boiled down substantially too, from a high of 171/91 to 131/67. The diastolic is now normal but the systolic is still “prehypertension”. Its not ok that just the systolic is high, I simply learnt that is called “Isolated systolic hypertension” and is the most common kind of high blood pressure ins folks overs 65. As an evaluation, the high number, systolic, is while the heart is beating, the low number, diastolic, is while it is resting in between beats. The fluid characteristics of all this is interesting, it is pulses traveling in elastic tubes. The tubes arent just elastic, they are active: they can dilate or constrict due to the action of smooth muscles in their lining. Im going to go into a lot of detail about that in future posts because it is essential and intriguing.

Now as far as the doctor is concerned, yes I enhanced a bit from a high of 170/90 on my last visit, however here is a client that simply presented, in her office, with significant high blood pressure. What would probably 99% or more of the physicians in the United States a minimum of, if not the world, do? “Im going to start you on a dose of xxx and see if that repairs it”, heres your little white piece of paper, see me again if that doesnt fix it. Instead, Dr. Moayed offers me a list of foods that improve vasodilation, and motivated me to keep operating at my lifestyle interventions. If that does not work well try supplements or other plant-derived remedies (nutraceuticals). If I do not respond to that will we try drugs, just. She then gave me a fascinating examples of why a BP drug (lisinopril. one I utilized to be on) triggers adverse effects.
I think youre getting a concept of why I so much like working with Dr. Moayed. Ill go into why in more information in my next post.

Yes my gait is ok now, however I have to show I am doing enough to avoid it weakening in the future as it typically does with age, such as gait-related muscle strength and flexibility training, and balance. My post about my gait eval was a little superficial, in retrospection.
Sneak peek( opens in a brand-new tab).
Ok, Ive improved a lot, but still some work to do. I go to my physicians office for my followup, and the reading is 155/78 in the office! Even if that is real, that condition is not benign, so I still have some work to do.
She advised sticking to simple things like yoga and meditation on emerging, and workout out more vigorously later on. Thats where I am on my blood pressure adventure.

Rather, Dr. Moayed offers me a list of foods that boost vasodilation, and encouraged me to keep working at my way of life interventions. If that does not work well attempt supplements or other plant-derived treatments (nutraceuticals). I think youre getting an idea of why I so much like working with Dr. Moayed.
