As practitioners of life cultivation, we are very concerned whether we have a high blood pressure condition. We will change our lifestyle to take on heart-healthy habits when that happens.
By definition, when our systolic pressure is between 120 and 129 mm Hg and our diastolic pressure is less than 80 mm Hg, it means we have elevated blood pressure. In other words, numbers higher than 120/80 mm Hg are a red flag that we need to take on heart-healthy habits.
Just out of curiosity, if we do not have the measuring instrument to measure our blood pressure, can we say that we do not have the disease called high blood pressure? The disease called high blood pressure did not exist before the invention of the measuring instrument, right?
In the United States, around 75 million people, or 29% of the population, have high blood pressure, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In this article, we look at the causes of high blood pressure and how to treat it.
In China, around 340 million people have high blood pressure, according to Chinese reports. It increased from 297 million people in 2016 to 326 million people in 2020. In particular, the incidence of high blood pressure in young and middle-aged patients has increased rapidly in the past decade, and its upward trend is more rapid and obvious than that in the elderly.
A man we know, under the age of thirty, was diagnosed with high blood pressure. After three years and hundreds of dollars in treatment, he was still taking medicine. By chance, he met a herbal doctor who judged that he was suffering from a cold at the fengchi acupoint.
Normal blood pressure under normal circumstances cannot send blood through that place, so the human body system must adjust the blood pressure by itself in order to send blood and nutrients through the point. The herbal doctor gave him a prescription. After taking six doses of herbal medicine, his blood pressure has returned to normal. Thus we share this doctor’s article about high blood pressure among practitioners like us. We hope that it will be helpful to the health of those who are predestined.
01 A disease was born
Western medicine calls high blood pressure (hypertension) a disease, and it believes that high blood pressure can cause many major diseases such as stroke, cardiovascular disease, renal failure and so on. It calls high blood pressure an invisible killer. So let us review how high blood pressure (hypertension) was born.
The modern industrial revolution brought about the invention of the sphygmomanometer, which can measure the diastolic and systolic blood pressure data of the blood vessels, and then set a standard based on the average blood pressure of the human body, and those higher than this standard are called hypertension.
The discovery of high blood pressure is due to the invention of the sphygmomanometer, which measures the diastolic and systolic blood pressure of blood vessels. However, western medicine seems to put the cart before the horses and start to regard the phenomenon as science and medical progress.
Since it is a new knowledge of medicine, how exactly does high blood pressure arise? In fact, patients don’t know it, and experts and authorities don’t know it. Still it does not prevent the higher authorities from giving them names like primary hypertension and secondary hypertension and start to treat them like a disease.
In fact, the so-called high blood pressure becomes a disease created for the launch of the sphygmomanometer. If the equipment is not invented, there will not be a disease called hypertension. It is just a certain data that exists objectively in our body detected by this instrument, and nothing else.
As practitioners of life cultivation with health knowledge, we know that physical exercise will cause blood pressure to rise, and no exercise will not raise blood pressure. We know that with food stimulation, blood pressure will rise, and when the stimulation stops, blood pressure will not rise again. We know that with the rise of noise, the blood pressure will rise, and with the elimination of noise, the blood pressure will return to normal.
In herbal medicine, the elderly and those with weak heart and kidney functions are susceptible to the six evils of wind, cold, heat, dampness, dryness, and fire. They enter the body by various means. When the six evils fail to be excreted with sweat due to a weak body condition, the heart and kidneys will take over. Their functions are self-regulated, and the heart will beat faster to strengthen blood circulation. After the internal and external pathogens are discharged, the blood pressure will return to normal.
However, western medicine does not take this view point. They do not distinguish among wind, cold, heat, dampness, dryness, and fire. It does not distinguish among wind-cold, wind-heat, surface symptoms, and internal symptoms in the treatment of colds. It just blindly uses antibiotics to reduce inflammation and fever.
Exogenous evils are then introduced into the body, causing weakening of the heart and kidney functions, unable to expel wind, cold, heat, dampness, dryness, and fire from the body through sweating. The so-called hypertensive patients are like a frail child who catches a cold every day. The body needs to increase blood pressure to accelerate blood circulation and expel external pathogens from the body. However, antihypertensive drugs do not allow blood pressure to rise, causing external pathogens to remain in the body for a long time.
Many patients have backaches. Symptoms such as back pain, palpitation, chest tightness, dizziness, shortness of breath, etc. are caused by the weakened heart and kidney function caused by long-term anti-inflammatory and blood pressure reduction, and the inability to expel colds caused by wind, cold, heat, dampness, dryness, and fire from the body.
At present, due to the advancement of science and technology, blood pressure measurement has become very simple and convenient. Those who sell medical examinations, medicines, and equipment can measure blood pressure at will. Instrument manufacturers, pharmaceutical manufacturers, hospitals, and distributors collaborate to plan. The tool that was supposed to serve the health of the masses has been turned into a means of creating business opportunities and selling medicine to make money.
In fact, people’s seven emotions such as joy, anger, worry, thinking, sadness, fear, and shock, and the six evils of wind, cold, heat, dampness, dryness, and fire may all increase blood pressure, and a sphygmomanometer cannot distinguish them.
What can a measurement without knowing the reasons behind the measurement explain to us?
However, a community of interests composed of equipment manufacturers, pharmaceutical manufacturers and hospitals colluded among them. They interpret our health at will, position some normal phenomena in our body as diseases, and use the data of blood pressure monitors to say that we have a disease that has to be treated.
Treating some normal reactions as diseases caused various side effects throughout the body and complications of the heart, brain, kidneys and other organs. It creates a good miracle that ranked first among the four major causes of death.
