What is Blood Pressure?
Understanding the blood pressure in a layman's language
Normal human blood pressure is 120 / 80 mm of Hg. Blood pressure is the force exerted by blood on the walls of the arteries and if it goes beyond certain limit, it starts to damage the inner walls of the arteries. The age of a man is known by the Age of his arteries. When the arteries harden and loose their elasticity, they become more prone to rupture or blockage or handle pressure.
This leads to minor leakages here and there leading to irregular blood supply to vital cells of brain, eyes, heart causing hemorrhage. This hemorrhage can lead to blindness, stroke, heart attack, erectile dysfunction and so many diseases.
Just imagine a rubber pipe carrying water for irrigation to a big field. The rubber pipe is elastic when new. When it gets older, it gets hardened and starts to leak from various places and if it leaks, the excess water will destroy the plants around the leakage area and the plants which were going to get the water supply, also get destroyed because they did not get any water. Similarly if the arteries bleed, the tissues get damaged in the area where bleeding happens. This is called – Hemorrhage in medical terminology. The area which does not get blood supply because of hemorrhage or blockage in the artery leads to a situation called "ischemia" in medical terms. Therefore the leakage or bleeding from the arteries can lead to damage in 2 ways
Hemorrhagic (Stroke can be due to hemorrhage or can be due to Ischemia)
Ischemia (Usually Myocardial Ischemia is the medical term used for heart attack)
After effects of Prolonged blood pressure
- Heart Size Enlargement leading to Congestive heart failure (Left ventricular failure)
- Heart Attacks
- Blindness and retinopathy
- Tinnitis – ringing in the ears
- Facial paralysis
- Feeling of heat inside the body – especially behind the eyes
- Restlessness, Anxiety and Sleeplessness
Causes of Blood pressure
- Stress and Anxiety - Major cause of Blood Pressure now a days
- Adrenaline / Catchecholamines secreting tumors - Pheochromocytoma etc.
- Smoking - The smoke damages the inner walls of arteries and causes blockages and reduction in elasticity of arteries.
- Obesity - The field which the pipes have to irrigate becomes bigger in this case, therefore the pressure on the heart and arteries increases. Heart size enlarges and finally fails
- Alcohol - Chronic alcohol consumption can also lead to blood pressure along with too much consumption of Non-Veg diet.
- How Non-Veg diet can cause blood pressure - Here is an analogy to explain you the feelings of Chicken before getting slaughtered.
Imagine yourself caged along with 50 more humans (The chickens are in this situation before getting slaughtered) and a giant about 45 feet comes to your cage (Human size is almost 7 times bigger than a chicken) and catches someone from the cage and slaughters him in front of your eyes.
How you will feel?
Fearful, Revengeful, Full of Anger, frustration, stressful and anxious.
These feelings are generated in humans by a bunch of chemicals released during stressful situations. The chickens are full of such chemicals and we ingest those chemicals causing the same feelings in us. By eating non-veg diet, We are giving the raw material of these chemicals to our body to make these chemicals in abundance, which leads to feelings like fear, revenge, anger, frustration and stress. These chemicals are also responsible for blood pressure.
