Channel what are the dangers of low blood
pressure blood pressure is the force that blood exerts on the walls of
arteries there are two numbers associated with blood pressure the first
number is the systolic pressure which is the pressure as the heart is pumping the
blood the second number is the diastolic pressure which is the pressure when the
heart is between beats normal blood pressure is that which has a systolic
reading of 120 millimeters of mercury 120 millimeters Hg or lower the normal
diastolic reading is 80 millimeters Hg or lower the two numbers are typically
represented as 120 ATF’s millimeter Hg low blood pressure also called
hypertension is the condition when blood pressure falls below 90 sixtieths
millimeter Hg although some people have low blood pressure all of the time and
have no problems hypertension carries risks and could be
an indication of a more serious condition alertness dangers low blood
pressure can cause dizziness blurred vision and confusion these are dangerous
conditions when focus is needed for the sake of safety such as while driving a
motor vehicle these symptoms of low blood pressure can cause loss of
concentration while driving and result in loss of control of the vehicle full
dangers the onset of dizziness can occur quickly especially when standing
suddenly the resulting dizziness could result in a fool that could injure you
also fainting is a danger of low blood pressure fainting can result in serious
bodily harm resulting from a fall when going unconscious shock shock occurs
when there is not enough blood reaching major organs including the brain the
early signs of shock are lightheadedness confusion and sleepiness as the
condition progresses it will be difficult to sit up and not pass out
shock can be fatal and should be treated immediately other conditions low blood
pressure could be an indicator of a more serious problem problems that result in
low blood pressure include blood loss severe
infection severe dehydration heart problems such as heart attack heart
failure and faulty heart valves severe allergic reaction and endocrine problems
such as overactive or underactive thyroid Addison’s disease low blood

10 Signs of Low Blood Pressure. Hypotension, or low blood pressure, is when
systolic pressure is below 90, and diastolic pressure is below 60. Low blood pressure is a red flag because it
indicates inadequate blood flow to the vital organs including the heart and brain. For healthy people, low blood pressure may
be of no consequence. Sometimes, however, it can be life-threatening. Causes of low blood pressure may include loss
of blood due to bleeding, low body temperature, sepsis, heart disease, medication, dehydration,
or an anaphylactic allergic reaction. The following signs and symptoms may indicate
low blood pressure. 1. Dizziness/lightheadedness. Have you ever felt dizzy or lightheaded when
standing up too quickly? The reason was due to a sudden drop in blood
pressure. Low blood pressure means that not enough oxygen
is reaching your vital organs. When you feel dizzy or lightheaded, there
is a (sometimes brief) lack of oxygen supply to the brain. When the brain is cut off from its oxygen
supply, it cannot function properly. A brief feeling of dizziness or lightheadedness
when standing up is called orthostatic hypotension, or postural hypotension. If the lightheaded feeling is ongoing, it
is recommended to see a doctor. 2. Blurred vision. Another symptom of orthostatic hypotension,
a person may experience blurred vision when going from a sitting to a standing position,
or during or after strenuous activity. This is especially common among the elderly
and raises concern for a traumatic fall. Pregnant women also commonly experience symptoms
of low blood pressure including blurred vision, especially when standing. 3. Weakness. Weakness in the entire body is an indication
that the organs and limbs are not receiving adequate oxygen supply—this is one of the
signs of low blood pressure. A person who experiences blood loss accompanied
by weakness most likely has low blood pressure and may be in danger of going into shock. Shock is considered a medical emergency, and
it is a condition in which a person has dangerously low blood pressure, and the vital organs are
not receiving enough oxygen. Shock may result in permanent damage or even
death. 4. Nausea. One of the symptoms of low blood pressure
and low blood supply to the vital organs and periphery is nausea. A person may experience a brief feeling of
nausea due to orthostatic hypotension, or it can accompany long-term hypotension along
with fatigue. When a person experiences nausea and vomiting
or diarrhea together, he may have hypotension due to loss of fluids. Severe nausea that is accompanied by other
symptoms (and not due to a known cause such as pregnancy) requires immediate medical attention. Make sure to drink plenty of fluids with electrolytes
to stay hydrated. 5. Fatigue. When low blood pressure is consistent rather
than sudden, one of the signs may be fatigue or constant tiredness. Studies show that systemic hypotension is
associated with persistent tiredness—but they are not mutually exclusive. Long-term hypotension that is accompanied
by symptoms like fatigue may indicate a more serious underlying problem. If you are experiencing constant fatigue or
tiredness, make an appointment with your general practitioner to rule out a more serious health
issue. 6. Fainting (syncope). When blood pressure drops rapidly resulting
in the sudden onset of symptoms, a person may faint. Fainting is a loss of consciousness due to
inadequate blood flow to the brain. When there is reduced oxygen supply to the
brain, however brief, it can result in symptoms like dizziness, lightheadedness and even loss
of consciousness. One example of this is due to a severe case
of orthostatic hypotension. People may lose consciousness because of reduced
blood volume, or hypovolemia—one of the most common causes of hypotension. This may be a result of hemorrhage, dehydration/starvation,
or excess fluid loss due to vomiting or diarrhea. 7. Confusion. Confusion or disorientation are signs that
a person is not receiving enough oxygen to the brain. Any time a person is experiencing confusion,
it indicates a medical problem. If you or a loved one is experiencing confusion
or disorientation, seek immediate medical attention. 8. Cold, clammy, pale skin. This is one indication that a person has gone
into shock. When blood pressure is dangerously low, the
body compensates by constricting blood vessels in the periphery to maintain normal blood
pressure in the vital organs. This results in loss of blood to the arms
and legs—the reason for cold, pale, or clammy skin. 9. Rapid, shallow breathing. Rapid, shallow breathing is considered a medical
emergency. It is one sign that a person may be going
into shock. Low blood pressure is an indication that a
person is not receiving the proper oxygen supply throughout the body—and when a person
is breathing quickly and unnaturally, it is a sure sign that they are struggling to get
more oxygen. 10. Weak pulse
A weak pulse is considered a medical emergency. It indicates that the pressure of the heartbeat
is weak—meaning the person has low blood pressure. A weak pulse is one indication that a person
has gone into shock. Often this happens after blood loss due to
bleeding, but anytime a person has a weak pulse, immediate medical attention is required. Some people live with low blood pressure their
entire lives, and they are perfectly healthy. Other times, low blood pressure may indicate
a more serious underlying medical condition or a medical emergency. Talk to a health professional if you have
signs of low blood pressure.
Hi everyone, it’s Dr Sam Robbins, Today I want to discuss How Blood Pressure
Causes Erectile Dysfunction & Impotency Over the years, I’ve had a lot of guys tell
me that the solutions I gave to them to lower their blood pressure naturally, has also resulted
in a “side-benefit” of better erections. They’ve asked if there’s any correlation…
or if it’s just “coincidence”? And yes, there is a direct correlation and
I’m making this video for all the guys who do have some kind of erectile “issues”
that they’re concerned about, want to fix or just want to prevent in the future. Also, high blood pressure also negatively
affects a woman’s libido as well. So, this isn’t just for men. And I bring this up because ⅓ of adults
have high blood pressure and about 75% don’t even know it. Sadly, the older you get, the worse the problem
… and these numbers are also similarly correlated with erectile dysfunction. Two Primary Causes Of Erectile Dysfunction There are 2 main reasons for having erectile
problems: The primary one is a hormonal imbalance and
the numbers and ratios are NOT optimized. I’ve covered this in the past. But basically,
this means that: Total and free testosterone levels are down.
Estrogens (estradiol) levels are higher. Prolactin (another female hormone) is also
higher. Cortisol and other stress hormones are elevated
Elevated insulin levels Additionally, an imbalance in hormones, will
also eventually lead to the secondary cause, which is poor blood flow circulation. And
I’ve also covered this in the past. However, what’s interesting is that high
blood pressure or hypertension, is one of the symptoms or resulting consequences, of
both hormonal imbalances and/or poor blood flow. So either way, the end result is higher blood
pressure, which also happens to accelerate aging. Viagra & Cialis Lower Blood Pressure Now, what most people don’t know is that
PDE5 inhibiting drugs, such as Viagra and Cialis, help lower blood pressure, in addition
to improving blood flow, the end result being stronger erections. In fact, Sildenafil – the active ingredient
in Viagra, was originally developed for high blood pressure. However, a side-effect … or,
side-BENEFIT of it, was better erections. What’s interesting is that Pfizer has TWO
drugs that contain Sildenafil: Viagra for erections
and Revatio for hypertension. What’s super interesting is that Revatio
costs less than Viagra, even though it’s the same exact drug and dosage. High Blood Pressure=Erectile Dysfunction So, getting back to high blood pressure and
erectile problems. One study1 showed that about 50% of men ages
40 to 79 with high blood pressure, also had erectile dysfunction. Another study2 showed that almost 70% of men
with high blood pressure, had some degree of erectile dysfunction. And for 45% of the
men, it was considered “very severe”. Why Hypertension Causes Erectile Dysfunction High blood pressure keeps the arteries that
carry blood into the penis, from dilating the way they’re supposed to. It also makes
the smooth muscle in the penis lose its ability to relax. As a result, not enough blood flows into the
penis to make it erect or stay erect. Ironically, hypertension drugs that help lower
blood pressure, ALSO lead to erectile dysfunction. So, the best way to treat hypertension is
to do it naturally, especially if you’re concerned about erectile dysfunction — whether
it’s because you want to reverse it now or prevent it in the future. With that said, below I’ve got two links. One being to another YouTube video entitled,
“5 clinically proven solutions for lowering High Blood Pressure” The other link is to a scientifically researched
remedy for lowering your blood pressure in 30 days or less. It’s basically a natural
alternative to hypertension drugs. And it’s actually what my own father uses. So please take scroll down below, to the description
area now, while it’s fresh on your mind and improve your blood pressure naturally,
and help fix any potential erectile problems you may have or want to avoid in the future. Well, that’s it for today! I hope this video gave you more clarity. If you found it helpful please give it a thumbs
up. As always, thanks for listening and have a
happy and healthy day.
High blood pressure is about as common today
as it was a decade ago, a new study finds. But patients with high blood pressure who
visited their doctor more often and kept their high cholesterol in check were more likely
to have lower blood pressure. I’m Miranda Savioli with your latest health news. A recent large study found that people with
high blood pressure who saw their doctor at least twice a year were 3 point 2 times more
likely to keep their blood pressure lower than people who saw their doctor less often.
Patients with health insurance and those being treated for high cholesterol were also more
likely to have their blood pressure under control. High blood pressure can lead to life-threatening
conditions like stroke or heart disease. According to the American Heart Association,
an ideal blood pressure reading is 120 over 80, so talk to your doctor if you’re concerned
about your numbers.
Hi, my name is Usuff and I had pretty high
blood pressure yesterday morning. It rose to 171/113, which was pretty high
for me. It was that high because I was experimenting
with some B vitamins. And that experiment went disastrously wrong.
In the evening my blood pressure was still high, although it had dropped a little bit
to about 170/100. Not good, remaining high for so long the whole
day. I remembered a technique for bringing down
high blood pressure quickly that I read in an ebook.
And I applied the technique and I brought it down fairly successfully.
How To Lower Blood Pressure Quickly. If you’ve ever lost control of your blood
pressure, and it rises way too high,
here’s a technique you can use to bring it down quickly.
This technique is taken from Virginia Sturm’s ebook entitled
Natural Solutions to High Blood Pressure. In this ebook Virginia explains the causes
and dangers of high blood pressure. And outlines thirty natural ways to lower
it. One of the ways she gives is “soaking feet
in hot water”. When my blood pressure rose dangerously high,
in desperation, I tried this technique. And it did drop my BP down to a safer level
within an hour. Much to my relief.
Here’s my story. One morning my BP hit the roof.
It was 171/113. I reacted badly to a supplement I was taking.
After coming home from work my BP was still dangerously high.
I needed to bring my BP down quickly. In desperation I tried Virginia Sturm’s technique
of my soaking my feet in warm water. I improvised and found a plastic recyling
bin and emptied it. I then filled it with very warm water.
As hot as my feet could tolerate. At 8:39pm, just before placing my feet in
the water, I measured my BP. I used a reliable Omron BP monitor.
Before soaking my feet, my BP was 169/99. In other words, my BP had been high the whole
day. Not good.
I placed both feet in the warm water. The water was actually a bit hot.
Over the next hour I watched it fall nicely, down from 169/99 to 140/82 in just an hour.
In other words, this technique lowered my blood pressure from around 170/100 to 140/80
in an hour. That’s a big drop in a short time.
And a huge relief. I kept soaking my feet the rest of that night.
My BP did rise back up, but not as high as before.
It stabilized around the 150/90 mark that evening.
Soaking my feet in hot water worked for me. I thank my lucky stars.
I made this video because others may be in a similar situation and want to know how to
lower blood pressure quickly. Obviously, it’s not a permanent fix.
But it buys time. Time to look at more permanent solutions.
Other BP lowering advice can be found in Virginia Sturm’s ebook.

High blood pressure is a serious medical issue.
Hey guys, Dr. Axe here from draxe.com and
Doctor of Functional Medicine. Hey, in this video I’m going to share with you the top
ways to lower blood pressure naturally. There are, literally, millions of people all
across North America who are struggling with high blood pressure, as well as Europe, in
Australia and all around the world. And so again, I’m going to go through my top
five things you can do to lower blood pressure naturally, and by the way, do this fast. Some
of these plans people have out there today can take months to see results. You can see
results in one day, 24 hours, by following the tips in this video. Your number one step to naturally lowering
your blood pressure is going to be consuming a Mediterranean-like diet. And a Mediterranean
diet is going to be very, very high in fruits, vegetables, sea foods, and healthy omega-3
rich fat oils from things like olives and flax seeds. And so, again, following a Mediterranean diet
and ideally would be considered more of a grain free or a lower grain consumption Mediterranean
diet is ideal. Some of the top foods you want to consume on this diet are going to be olive
oil, flax seeds, wild-caught fish, especially salmon. And then, lots of fruits and vegetables. If
you can do that, that is going to be step one in naturally lowering your blood pressure.
There are four more natural remedies that are going to be beneficial as well. The number one supplement and my number two
thing you can do to naturally lower blood pressure is start taking a fish oil supplement.
Study after study has shown consuming fish oil which is high in EPA and DHA forms of
omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation of the body. We know that one of the main causes of high
blood pressure is inflammation of the arteries overtime. So again, take a high quality fish
oil, a 1,000 milligrams every single day with your meals. The third natural remedy in naturally lowering
high blood pressure is going to be magnesium. Now, magnesium is great because this mineral
helps relax your blood vessels and it can have an immediate impact on naturally lowering
blood pressure. So again, magnesium, typically 500 milligrams
daily is a great dose to naturally start to lower blood pressure. The fourth natural remedy for lowering blood
pressure is going to be getting more potassium in your diet or taking even a potassium supplement. Potassium is essential and some of the best
potassium-rich foods includes coconut water and bananas. So coconut water is if you want
something a little bit sweet to drink through the day, you can do coconut water. Also doing a superfood smoothie in the morning,
doing coconut water as your actual liquid base but getting more potassium. Avocados are also high in potassium, but what
I would do is go online and look up potassium-rich foods and start getting more potassium in
your diet to naturally lower blood pressure. And my number five supplement for naturally
lowering blood pressure is going to be Coenzyme Q10. CoQ10 is also crucial if you’ve ever
been on a blood pressure or especially a cholesterol lowering medication, you must be taking Coenzyme
Q10. It’s antioxidant that is critical for supporting
your heart health. And so typically 200 to 300 milligrams a day of Coenzyme Q10 can absolutely
naturally help balance blood pressure in the body. So remember, if you’re going to lower your
blood pressure, number one, follow a Mediterranean-like diet that’s high in fruits, vegetables, sea
food especially wild-caught fish, and then again, healthy fats and oils like omega-3
fatty acids and olive oil. And then, again, magnesium, fish oil, potassium,
Coenzyme Q10, you do those things you are going to see great results in naturally lowering
your blood pressure. If you’d like to learn more, you can visit
