It carries with it a mishmash of health risks, many of them serious, like tripling the risk of dying from a heart attack, quadrupling the risk of dying from a stroke, doubling the risk of congestive heart failure and tripling the risk of developing kidney disease.
There are always two numbers given in blood pressure ranges, the systolic and the diastolic pressure. The systolic number is usually written above or before the diastolic number, such as 112/64 mmHg (which is generally considered a 'normal' range), whenever blood pressure ranges are quoted. A blood pressure calculator can quickly assess the systolic and diastolic blood pressure ranges for men, women, the elderly, and for children. They vary widely, even within an individual.
But if our very lives weren't enough for high blood pressure to be in the top five of our "Health Issues to Be Concerned About" lists, then how about the lives of our marriages and relationships?
High blood pressure - anything outside the normal blood pressure ranges for men - has a significant impact on a couple's sexlife. Sex is a crucial part of any relationship, and when a loving couple is not having it at least on a semi-regular basis, more often than not, the relationship sours faster than curdled milk.
The reason high blood pressure affects the average sexlife all boils down to blood flow. Due to the narrowing of the arteries that high blood pressure creates, it diminishes a man's ability to have an erection -- never mind maintain one -- as there's less blood flowing to the penis.
To rectify this situation, the average guy heads to his doctor, reluctantly tells him or her about his issues "down there," and the doctor prescribes him with some form of hypertension med -- usually an alpha or beta-blocker.
BP Problem solved, right? Not exactly.
While your blood pressure levels might lower incrementally, your sex drive will lower incrementally as well -- the very opposite of what you want to have happen.
This isn't some theory concocted by so-called natural health "whack jobs," mind you. Well-respected news organizations and medical information outlets -- like ABC News and the Mayo Clinic -- corroborate this. In an ABC News webcast on Feb. 7 of last year, Dr. Domenic Sica, chairman for Clinical Pharmacology and Hypertension at the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, said this:
"When you look at it, a number of the blood pressure medications we use are associated with the onset of male dysfunction. Now, that can be a diuretic, a beta-blocker, or so-called peripheral alpha beta-blocker -- those are three drugs commonly linked to male dysfunction."
I'm not sure the link can be made any clearer; you name the hypertension drug, and it will adversely affect your sexlife.
Given this, if you'll pardon the cliche, how does one kill two birds with one stone? How does one lower their blood pressure into safe blood pressure ranges and improve their lovelife at the same time? Or is that even possible?
Absolutely it's possible, and you can learn how to do it all-naturally.
Bestselling authors Frank Mangano and Jon Benson have developed an easy, all-natural way to lower your blood pressure into the normal blood pressure ranges and improve your sexlife at the same time. They weren't sure this was possible, but after months of research and hordes of emails from people on how their system worked for them, they don't just think it's possible, they know it's possible!
Let me prove it to you.
I recommend you visit their website immediately, where you'll get a crash course on how ignoring the blood pressure ranges has affected me personally; more information on the links between what's 'down there' and hypertension; and most important of all, how you can improve the health of your body and your relationship... all-naturally.
