How to deal with arterial hypotension( hypotension)

There is a widespread view that hypertensive people live brightly, but little, and hypotension "sluggish," but for a long time. However, I want to live brightly and long for everyone! But hypotension - a common phenomenon, especially in young women, does not make you feel full of life. In women, blood pressure is slightly lower than that of men, and in case of weather whims and with monthly hormonal races, its decrease can be significant. What is this diagnosis - "arterial hypotension" - and whether it is possible to somehow adjust this state of nutrition?

So, persistently low blood pressure - arterial hypotension( hypotension) consider stable values โ€‹โ€‹of systolic blood pressure below 90 mmHg. Art.and diastolic blood pressure below 60 mm Hg. Art. Isolate physiological and pathological( painful) arterial hypotension. Physiological hypotension can be an individual variant of the norm, the result of increased fitness( sports hypotension), compensatory hypotension in high altitude inhabitants, etc.

pathological hypotension as: neurocirculatory( primary) with reversible or persistent course and secondary( symptomatic)with pulmonary tuberculosis, rheumatism, osteochondrosis of the cervical spine and other diseases.
Symptoms of hypotension - drowsiness, weakness, fatigue, darkening in the eyes when getting up, headache and dizziness, until the loss of consciousness due to a sharp drop in blood pressure.

About 80% of people with low blood pressure suffer from neurocirculatory dystonia of the hypotensive type, resulting from hereditary inferiority of higher vasomotor centers, peculiar vascular constitution, long psychoemotional and psychosocial stresses, mental overstrain, craniocerebral injuries, etc.

Many people with loweredArterial pressure feel good, i.e.do not feel arterial hypotension. In some cases, to improve well-being, it is enough to change the way of life: normalize sleep, the nature of work and rest, go swimming or other sports. With secondary( symptomatic) arterial hypotension is directed to the underlying disease.

There is no special for people with arterial hypotension, there are no restrictions on products or methods for cooking food. One thing is important: adherence to the principles of healthy eating. It is necessary to abandon the attempt to "strengthen" health at the expense of inadequate food rations of various types of non-traditional food( raw , macrobiotics, blood groups, etc.) or "preventive" fasting. It is known that even with short-term fasting, secondary arterial hypotension is possible in people who have normal blood pressure.

Theoretically, nutrition with primary arterial hypotension should be the opposite of a with primary arterial hypertension, where the main thing is to reduce excess body weight with obesity, limit sodium intake( table salt) and increase potassium intake. It would be absurd to achieve with arterial hypotension with the help of increased nutrition of the appearance of obesity, especially since lowered arterial blood pressure occurs with obesity, or restrict consumption of vegetables, fruits and berries to reduce the intake of potassium in the body. However, the attempt to use one food opposite may make sense: it is a question of a moderate increase in the intake of table salt( 15-20 g per day) in the absence of concomitant diseases in which excess sodium in food is contraindicated. Data on the effectiveness of the sodium load are contradictory;a positive result can be expected only in a small part of persons with arterial hypotension.

Some people suffering from hypotension, with a sense of heaviness in the head, headaches, general weakness and apathy, a quick but short-term effect gives the use of strong tea or black coffee, to a lesser extent - Coca-Cola, cocoa, strong low-fat broth, dark chocolate. However, often not only there is no positive effect of all the drinks listed, but there is a "reverse" effect, in particular from coffee, when drowsiness appears instead of vivacity. And therefore, the first and foremost thing that a person prone to hypotension should do is, strangely enough, completely stop using stimulating substances: alcohol, tobacco, coffee, tea, coca-cola, ephedrine, ginseng and other stimulants. All these substances deplete the body, returning the forces for a while, and then increasing fatigue and weakness. With sugar, too, one should be very cautious, although it does not have a direct effect on pressure - against the background of weakness, a constant need for sweet can develop, as the very much wants to increase the level of energy in this way. After the sweet, as you know, the forces temporarily increase, but soon disappear completely, so dependence on him is fraught with even greater weakness.

Food for hypotension should be just healthy, without special restrictions, and include vegetables, especially fresh green, in large quantities, whole grains, legumes, quality fats, sea fish, organic eggs, some organic chicken, some unpasteurized goat's milk productsmilk, fruit, uncalcined nuts and seeds.

Any hydrogenated fats, synthetic additives, and in particular, sugar substitutes for hypotension are excluded categorically;sugar and peeled grains are highly discouraged. A suffering from low blood pressure should drink plenty of fluids, at least 30 ml per kilogram of body weight per day.

With hypotension, it makes sense to pay special attention to spices, especially spicy: cayenne pepper, chili. The food should be generally warming, that is, there should be quite a lot of root vegetables, legumes, spicy and hot, and as little sweet, dairy and wheat as possible. Soya under reduced pressure is not recommended at all.

To diversify your and help the body to tolerate hypotension more easily, adding spices such as cinnamon to the will help. Its medicinal properties are not limited only to the control of blood pressure. This spice also helps to control everything that is important for those who have hypotension associated with adherence to restrictive for weight loss.

One of the most unpleasant symptoms of hypotension is orthostatic hypotension. With a sharp rise from a horizontal or even a sitting position in the eyes of the hypotonic darkens, the legs become wadded. Sometimes orthostatic hypotension leads even to a loss of consciousness.

How to cope with hypotension

The simplest means for hypotension is regular exercise. It must be remembered that the effect from them will not come earlier than on the 7-10th day of classes. However, when hypotension exercises often cause dizziness. That's why there are exercise complexes that you can perform lying down.

Gym for hypotension

Lie down on the back, raise and lower the straight legs, holding them in the raised position for a while.
Lie down on your back, raise your legs and rotate them with imaginary bicycle pedals.
Lie down on the back, perform scissors with raised arms and legs, that is, cross movements.
Lie down on your back, gently lift up and lower your hands. You can do this exercise with burdening - pick up two half-liter plastic bottles filled with water( if there are no dumbbells or weighting agents).
Lie down on the back, sharply box up and forward.
Raise your hands up, and then quickly and sharply "drop" them.
Knees to pull their knees to their stomachs, clasping them with their hands. Now press that there are forces, knees forward, trying to "break" the closed hands.
Not only physical activity, but rest in hypotension should be full and long-lasting. Often people around consider hypotonia "sleepy and lazy," but this is completely untrue - they really need more time to sleep. If a healthy person, according to , usually has 6-8 hours of continuous sleep, then for hypotonic sleep less than 10-12 hours may be inadequate. This is especially noticeable during cold, wet weather at low atmospheric pressure, when many people with hypotension can literally "fall asleep".This is the defensive reaction of the body .and this should be known not only to the themselves, but also to their closest associates.

For many hypotonic , problems can arise during the morning's waking process. A person wakes up, as always, a little sleepy, jumps out of bed and loses consciousness .This, of course, does not happen often, but it is impossible to name such an image. However, much more often there is nausea.dizziness and other unpleasant symptoms, which are really close to the syncope .Often after this, a person for quite a long time feels broken and sick. This is due to the fact that the blood concentrates in the region of the stomach ( in the liver , intestine, spleen) in the sleeper, especially the low head, and there is a relative lack of blood supply to the brain. In order to avoid this situation, hypotensive have to learn how to get up correctly. Having woken up, it is better to get up not immediately, but lie down. It is useful to do at least a few unsharp movements with your hands and feet, you can stretch, bend, that is, make an easy "gymnastics", the purpose of which is to disperse blood through the vessels. Get out of bed better slowly, first moving to the sitting position, it is even easier to first climb to all fours, and then slowly turn up. Only after this, you can stand on the floor, too, without making sudden movements.
