Hypertension

Disease description:

Blood pressure is the force that a person’s blood exerts against the walls of their blood vessels. The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure (Hypertension). Currently, blood pressure values up to 139/89 mmHg are considered normal or high normal, while 120/80 mmHg are classified as optimal. Often, with no warning signs at first and developing insidiously, hypertension damages organs after a short time, because the small blood vessels are particularly affected. Later on, general symptoms may occur at first, such as dizziness, headaches, palpitations, shortness of breath on exertion, nervousness and sometimes even sleep disturbances.

Explanation according to the Traditional Chinese Medicine:

The causes of hypertension in Chinese Medicine are:

  1. Long-term stress, depression, worrying cause Liver Qi stagnation and further turns into Liver Fire, which consumes Yin fluid.
  2. When getting older, Kidneys become weaker, causing Yin deficiency and Yin & Yang imbalance, which can lead to rising Yang.
  3. Overeating, fat and sweet food and too much drinking can lead to Stomach and Spleen Qi deficiency, gathering dampness and producing phlegm which disturbs and blocks the head, causing phlegm-type hypertension.
