High blood pressure is most common after the age of 35. It is especially common in African Americans, middle-aged and older people, overweight people, alcoholics, and women taking hormonal contraception. High blood pressure can also be hereditary - but not always. Some individuals do not suffer from high blood pressure despite strong presence of the condition in their family. Diabetics with gout or kidney disease are also prone to high blood pressure.
Many potentially serious medical conditions are associated with high blood pressure, such as:
Atherosclerosis: artery disease caused by accumulation of plaque on the internal walls of blood vessels. Hypertension further contributes to accumulation, which strains the walls of the arteries even more.
Heart diseases: cardiac failure (the heart is unable to pump blood efficiently), ischemia (the heart tissue does not receive enough blood), and hypertensive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart).
Problems with kidneys: hypertension can damage blood vessels and filtering portions of the kidneys, making them unable to properly secrete waste materials.
Stroke: hypertension can cause a stroke due to atherosclerosis, which can lead to blockages and/or clots, or due to the breaking of weakened arterial walls.
Eye diseases: hypertension can cause the growth of very small blood vessels in the retina.
Our BIORESONA centres help improve the results of regular drug therapies by stabilizing the body's own self-regulation systems, which in turn helps adjusting the psychophysical states caused by high blood pressure. Our data shows that blood pressure can be regulated effectively in such a way. In cases where drugs prove insufficient to regulate blood pressure, BICOM bioresonance helps to improve the effect of antihypertensive drugs on the body.
