The main causes of high blood pressure are weight, poor habits, and stress. Lifestyle differences, environment,and poorer access to quality health care are also factors. In conclusion, high blood pressure is a chain reaction. It starts out as a silent killer and ends with many health problems.
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force put on the walls of the arteries by the blood (About High Blood Pressure, 2011). The higher the pressure put on the walls of the arteries when the heart pumps the higher then individuals blood pressure will be. The pressure of the blood maybe be high (hypertensive) because of plaque build-up in the arteries, also known as atherosclerosis (Hoeger, 2009, p. 339). This plaque build-up causes the arteries to be narrow and in turn the heart has to pump with more forces to get the needed blood throughout the body. Plaque build-up in the arteries because of many factors such as nutrition, lack of physical activity, and or being overweight or obese.
High Blood Pressure is major health problem affecting the lives of many people. Most people are not aware of the many causes or solutions of high blood pressure. Causes can range from high sodium diets to high amounts of stress. In modern society, many people live a fast paced lifestyle, which puts them in a position to be more exposed to fast foods loaded with large quantities of sodium and stressful situations within their careers. Having high blood pressure means that there is a strong force of blood pushing against the artery walls throughout the circulation of the body.
The heart pumps blood into the arteries and the force of the blood pushing against blood vessel walls is called blood pressure. Arteries carry the blood throughout the body. High blood pressure is also know as hypertension and is very dangerous in many different ways. One way is that it makes the heart have to work harder in order to pump the blood to the body. Secondly it contributes to hardening of the arteries and lastly, it also contributes to heart failure.
Home Remedies for High Blood Pressure High blood pressure or hypertension is one of the chronic medical conditions that cause the pressure of the blood to go high. It has become a silent killer and a common disease of the modern age. The physical and mental pressure of the fast pace of life can be in way responsible to increase the adrenaline in the blood stream that causes the pressure to elevate. The heart exerts a force as it pumps blood into the large arteries and as such creates a pressure within them which is known as blood pressure. Blood pressure is important for the blood to circulate throughout the body.
The British Hypertension Society (BHS) and National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) have provided national guideline and recommendations for primary care to manage hypertension in community. This audit is going to look at the management and treatment of hypertension in the community practice by referring to latest BHS and NICE guideline for hypertension.

Another type of cardiovascular disease is High Blood Pressure, which is when there the arteries are too small because there is a build up of cholesterol. When the blood is trying to run through the arteries the pressure is too high. Which can lead to damage to the body.
Over time, however, too much pressure in your arteries can make the walls thick and stiff — sometimes restricting blood flow to your organs and tissues. This process is called arteriosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. *How arthrosclerosis causes a heart attack CAN BE MODIFIED: Cigarette smoking High blood pressure High blood cholesterol Overweight/obesity Physical inactiv... ... middle of paper ... ...vity and Obesity, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. “Overweight and Obesity.” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 22 May 2007.
Renovascular hypertension, also known as renal hypertension, is a condition in which chronically elevated high blood pressure is caused by a narrowing of the renal arteries. The renal arteries are the arteries that bring blood to the kidneys (9). This blood is processed by which the kidneys filter the blood, removing some substances and sometimes adding others. The kidneys also have several functions, which can be negatively affected by renovascular hypertension. One function is the regulation of water and ion balances within the body.
