High systolic blood pressure
In general, high systolic blood pressure usually occurs because of age-related changes in the body. Moreover, atherosclerosis is also the main cause of high systolic blood pressure. However, it is enough to be nervous sometimes to experience this problem. High systolic blood pressure contributes to poor circulation in the brain and kidneys.
Certainly, high systolic blood pressure has negative consequences on different organs. Sometimes it constitutes a life-threatening situation.
If a patient has high systolic blood pressure, the doctor should prescribe the treatment. The doctor identifies the causes, examines the body and decides on the tactics of treatment.
Nevertheless, there are cases when a person uses a strong drug without doctor’s prescription, and the problem becomes even worse. If a doctor diagnosed high systolic blood pressure and prescribed the scheme of treatment, the patient must observe it. For example, some hypertensive patients need to take pills for life. In cases where the pressure has risen for the first time, then there are a number of simple but effective measures:
- To take contrast footbaths
- To make acetic compress. For instance, with vinegar, ideally apple mixed in equal parts with water.
- To make head massage. It is better to entrust massage to an experienced specialist.
- To take calendula tincture: 30 drops three times a day. The course should be long enough.
- To make a cold compress. It is necessary to attach an ice cube, which should melt, to the protruding cervical vertebra. You can make such a compress no more than once within three days.
First thing to remember, in case if you have high systolic blood pressure, you should simply relax and listen to soothing music.
Surprisingly scientists have proven that a person can reduce blood pressure with the power of thought. For this, he needs to relax and give the brain an impulse that everything will be fine.
In the event that none of the proposed measures provide relief and do not help to reduce high systolic blood pressure, call for emergency help.
