If you have high blood pressure and you live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, you have a new advocate in Desert Health Acupuncture because they are now offering a treatment regimen for people with hypertension or high blood pressure. Going back several 1000 years acupuncture was known to be a great treatment option for people suffering from high blood pressure. Hypertension is where the blood in the walls of the human body’s circulatory system exerts pressure. If left unchecked or untreated this pressure will cause harm to the lining of the blood vessels in the circulatory system which in turn can lead to arteriosclerosis.
High blood pressure sufferers are symptomatic meaning they show signs of health issues including red face, dizziness, bad headaches, depression, nervousness, insomnia and difficulty breathing. The way high blood pressure is diagnosed besides the obvious physical signs is repeated blood pressure measurements that read above the normal range for the person’s age, weight and height. Other signals in the human body indicating high blood pressure are reduced muscle strength, constant urination and problems with eyesight.
High blood pressure can be lowered with acupuncture treatments that included electric stimulation. There have been studies done where acupuncture needles with low levels of electrical current were inserted into the arm around the wrist area of body. When this method was used and the patient blood pressure was checked after the acupuncture with electrical current was started the readings were lower than before. To treat high blood pressure successfully using acupuncture several needles need to be employed throughout the body including the forearm, writs and legs. Doing this triggers the body’s opioid chemicals and reduces the cardiovascular system excitatory levels. Doing this decreases the body’s heart activities and increases the need body’s need for oxygen which can reduce blood pressure. Acupuncture is also helpful in treating other health issues like myocardial ischemia.
