Do you have high blood pressure or a high heart rate?
High blood pressure, known as hypertension, has no symptoms. The disease damages blood vessels, and leads to serious health threats.
Even though there is no cure, using medications as prescribed and making positive lifestyle changes can improve your life. Positive lifestyle changes reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and more.
Doctors recommend eating a well-balanced and low-salt diet. Other ways to reduce high blood pressure include limiting alcohol, having regular physical activity, and maintaining a healthy weight.
The best way to know if your blood pressure is in a healthy or unhealthy range is to get it checked. High heart rate is also another health condition to look out for.
To reduce a high heart rate, Mayo Clinic recommends running, sleeping better, and getting a massage. A British study found that people who received massages actually had lower heart rates.
So, book your next massage, or possibly go to your doctor and talk with them to see how you can avoid high blood pressure or a high heart rate.
