What’s your reaction when you’ve over-slept and late for work? Like many people, you might rush around the house to get ready pronto, grab a quick cup of coffee or tea if you come from this neck of the woods, and breakfast is usually forfeited. When you do happen to eat it`s usually from a fast food outlet.

The phone rings but you ignore it. You rush out the door, spot your neighbour in the garden, and pretend you haven’t seen her, and avoiding all eye contact you jump in your car, turn the ignition and you’re off. You love your neighbour, but no time to waist, you’re late!

On the way to work you get caught up in the usual traffic …

The normal blood pressure range of persons aged 20 – 40 years is 120mm Hg systolic pressure and 80mm Hg diastolic pressure.= 120/80mmHg. Anyone registering above this range is classed as having high blood pressure. See the charts below refined averages.

The Systolic pressure is when the heart`s ventricles contract and push the blood through the veins. It is called the systole, the pressure during heartbeat action. The Diastolic pressure is the lower pressure that results when air is released out of the cuff and no more sound is heard. This is called the diastole; the artery resting pressure.

To learn how to use an arm cuff, monitor, stethoscope and graph, see my chart page. Or if you prefer, you can use a Digital Monitor instead, but the stethoscope is much more fun.

The normal blood pressure range can vary depending on what age you are.

The normal blood pressure range of persons aged 20 – 40 years is 120mm Hg systolic pressure and 80mm Hg diastolic pressure.= 120/80mmHg. By using the term “normal”, we really mean the ideal figure. Anyone registering above this range is classed as being pre-hypertensive, and if not addressed can develop into high blood pressure. See the charts below refined averages.

Coronary Artery Disease and Elevated Blood Pressure.

Is there a connection between coffee and high blood pressure being elevated, leading to coronary artery disease? Many researchers say that they have found little evidence implicating caffeine to cardiovascular disease. Heart disturbances only occurred with high doses, or in sensitive individuals. They report that when administered acutely, moderate doses of caffeine can increase blood pressure and decrease heart rate. For most people, tolerance develops to these effects within a few days and there is no alteration in cardiovascular effects for habitual caffeine users.

Natural Diuretic and Laxative.

Do you wonder if there are any high blood pressure symptoms or warning signs? They call this malady “the silent killer” because any indications that one is suffering from it are either non existent or very mild that a sufferer would not think anything of them, nor make a connection that something more serious was brewing.

So in a way there are no obvious physical symptoms to indicate that something sinister was brewing, not at the early stages anyway, but as the problem increase the symptoms will be more noticeable.

Any signs of high blood pressure though, no matter how subtle need to be investigated.

If you are suffering from any persistent physical symptoms of high blood pressure, it would be wise to make an appointment with your GP as soon as possible.m Let him know your concerns and ask for tests to be carried out as well as a blood pressure reading to be taken.

Don’t think you are being a nuisance as some often do. If you notice any changes in your general health, get it checked out. You need to take it seriously. Try asking the doctor …

The Ideal pH Balance (This is part 2 of the 4 Definite Steps for Quick Results E-course. Here is Part 1, Part 3, and Part 4.)

The ideal pH of our body fluids is roughly 7.4, (7.365 to be precise). This is not hard to maintain but requires stick-ability using the pH balance diet, which may help in reducing high blood pressure.

You already started the ball rolling by drinking fruit juice in the morning before breakfast and plenty of water through the day. I want to encourage all to try and continue to make the changes and maintain the ideal pH balance. It is well worth it when you feel and see the results.

Some of you may not want to give up your eating habits. I encourage you to at least try and give it a go before you say you can`t. It`s not hard if you take it step by step. Then if you still decide that this is not for you, why not let a friend know about this e-Course so they may benefit from it.

This course also may not be the solution …
