All About Low Blood Pressure

We get a lot of questions on low blood pressure. Here's what you need to know:

lowbloodpressure-resized-600Even though we hear less about low blood pressure, it’s also a threat to good health. Low blood pressure is generally recognized as 100/60 or below, an abnormal reading that registers malfunction of the circulatory system’s systole/diastol action.

What Brings About Low Blood Pressure?

Causes are wide ranging, from a reaction to drug medication (a common problem for the elderly who over-use drugs that lower immunity), to an electrolyte-loss response to a disease, or an endocrine or nerve disorder. LBP is also a sign of weak arterial system walls, where blood and fluid can leak and abnormally distend tissues, preventing good circulation. A poor diet that lacks vitamin C and bioflavonoids can cause this type of “run-down”  condition, along with weak adrenal action from emotional stress, and weak kidney action which may cause system toxemia. Natural treatment works well for symptoms like dizziness or light-headedness upon standing up, indicating a reduction of cerebral flow.

Do you have signs of low blood pressure? Great fatigue after even mild exercise, and low energy are primary signals, sometimes dizziness and lightheadedness, especially on standing quickly. Intolerance to heat and cold, nervousness, low immunity and high susceptibility to allergies and infections, particularly opportunistic disease like candida yeast overgrowth.
