Symptoms of High Blood Pressure

The symptoms of high blood pressure often times may be no symptoms at all. Yes, for the most part, high blood pressure has no symptoms. Some occasionally get symptoms but the vast majority of people have no symptoms. The only way to know is to have the blood pressure reading.

Most people do not have noticeable symptoms that they are experiencing high blood pressure.

Symptoms of High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure levels in what some call the Stroke Zone is when your systolic BP is 180 or higher or your diastolic of 110 or higher.

When your blood pressure is this high for either number, you have what is called a hypertensive crisis. Emergency medical treatment is needed.

However, as far as the dangers, this is not totally accurate. Why is it so high? What is the age? What are the health concerns. A more critical number is the pulse pressure. This is the difference between the top and bottom number.

If you are an adult older than 60 years, a pulse pressure greater than 60 may be a predictor of heart attacks. It may also be a sign of other cardiovascular disease, more so for men than women. Sometimes a low pulse pressure (less than 40) could be an indicator of poor heart function.

In adults and especially for those over 60, in our experience, when emergency medical help is not available, and for those with normal kidney function and no problems with using unprocessed sea salt, the water cures protocol has brought down the blood pressure.

It may take drinking two or three 8 ounce glasses of water spaced out over 15 minutes, each with 1/16th tsp of unprocessed sea salt dissolved in the mouth before drinking the water. The key to this working is the salt being absorbed in the mouth so it can get into the blood stream along with the trace minerals found in the salt.

What about the so-called high blood pressure symptoms?

May or May Not Be Symptoms List

When blood pressure gets sky high, some of these symptoms may occur or not. Because they do not occur for everyone, it is not a good idea to wait for them. Also, it is age, sex, health and activity dependent.

  • Severe headaches
  • Severe anxiety
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nosebleeds
  • Tinnitus noise may intensify
Experts say, the only safe sign to depend on is the one you read from a blood pressure cuff.

We all should know our blood pressure numbers. We should know our normal. When we have any health problems, then we know what our baseline is.

High Blood Pressure Symptom Fiction

Many of the assumed high blood pressure symptoms do not hold up to the science. They are fiction but are still believed to be real signs. Since they occasionally occur, this does not mean that for some, they are not real either. The only way to know for sure, have your blood pressure taken.

High blood pressure or hypertension symptom fiction include

  • nervousness
  • headaches
  • difficulty sleeping
  • facial flushing
  • sweating
  • nose bleeds (exception: hypertensive crisis may result in nose bleeds but it is a small percentage)

Since these do not really warn us of high blood pressure, it is dangerous to think that they are a warning sign of high blood pressure. Your pressure could be through the roof and with out the signs, you are none the wiser.

We all need to know our blood pressure and normal vital signs. By knowing our bodies, we can.

Everybody needs to know their blood pressure numbers, and everyone needs to prevent high blood pressure from developing.

Headaches, although not necessarily a sign of high blood pressure, can be signs of other serious conditions. If you have headaches, you need to find out why.

Example: acute CNS toxicity related to NSAID use presents as headaches. If you use NSAIDS, this should be considered.

One Possible Solution We C

Note: High pulse pressure (greater than 60) may indicate a leaky heart valves which causes valve regurgitation, which is caused by loss of aortic elasticity. In other words, the stiffness of the aorta, the largest artery in the body could be the cause.

Role of Vitamin C in the Function of the Vascular Endothelium

When looking at some of the numerous conditions and diseases where there is also depleted ascorbate levels, there is an interesting finding. Included in the conditions/diseases are metabolic syndrome, diabetes with poor glycemic control, atherosclerosis, smoking, poor dietary intake of vitamin C, inflammatory neurodegenerative diseases, and sepsis.

Our Grandparents Knew About Mixing Hydration and Eating!

It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...

"Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

The Great Salt Debate
Here is the Science

We are not promoting increased salt intake. We are suggesting taking salt in amounts appropriate to your bodies needs, based on water needs. Our needs are not one size fits all.

Note: Do you have CHF or Kidney Disease? Then.....

There is more to Water Cures than just salt and water. Diet, 50 to 80% raw food is best and exercise play an important part. And we believe the science is important too. Below is some of the research we found as to why Water Cures is the solution for better health.

Heal Your Headache It Worked For Me

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.

As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.

From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.

Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.

Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.

Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.

Why not give it a try yourself.
