is_your_circulatory_system_in_harmonyOne of the key indicators in homeostasis – the body’s ability to maintain harmony – is blood pressure. The benchmark for blood pressure is usually considered to be 120/80. The higher reading (systolic) is when the heart is beating and should be 120mg. The lower reading (diastolic) is when the heart is at rest and should be 80mg.
Obviously, not everyone fits this criteria, like everything else in life there are variations, sometimes the range is quite considerable. The problem facing all practitioners, whether medical or alternative, is determining the correct level on an individual basis. Too high causes Hypertensive situations and the risk of a heart attack or a stroke are more likely, leading doctors to prescribe medication to artificially lower the blood pressure.

But what if the person taking the medication actually needed higher blood pressure than is considered normal? If given medication to lower the blood pressure the body may struggle to maintain a balance. When blood pressure is lowered much below the ideal level several symptoms become apparent. The most frequent symptoms experienced are due to cerebral ischemia – a lack of blood to the brain – causing loss of short term memory, lethargy and sometimes dizziness and a distinct lack of enthusiasm for life in general. There are of course other effects on the circulatory system when it becomes Hypotensive – too low – the kidneys in particular which require a large blood supply to operate effectively become compromised. However the symptoms are not always immediately obvious.

If you are concerned in any way about your blood pressure whether you are on medication or not, we would like to offer a brief overview for you, using the method we employ in Chirokinetic Therapy where we consider the blood pressure/pulse ratio. For this we will need both your high and low blood pressure reading and also the pulse beats per minute taken whilst you are at rest.
