High Blood Pressure that has been so common these days, is a product of tension and pressures in life that a person is not able to handle. Definitely, pills can give a person relief and enable him to live life normally away from headache, giddiness and palpitations, but it not a good idea when one has a very aromatic and natural way to feel relaxed, that’s through Aromatherapy.
Blood pressure depends on the amount of blood the heart pumps and the restriction of blood flowing through arteries that depends on the diameter of arteries. What happens is that heart pumps blood and the blood flows through the arteries, smaller the arteries higher the blood pressure. Our kidneys regulates our flow of water and salt in the body, more salt means that water is retained in circulation and the blood vessels tend to narrow, which increases blood pressure and on the other hand lower the level of salt makes blood pressure low.
Circulation of blood in the brain is the most tedious job; when sensitive nervous system is active it brings in more blood to the brain raising blood pressure. Hypertension is nothing but a nervous system reacting to unreal fear that stays forever.
Symptoms could be irritability, to much tension, low diet, anxiety, insomnia, not getting social, avoid loud sounds, and headache.
