Keeping your blood pressure at an optimum level is one of the most important factors when it comes to supporting your good health. Blood pressure indicates how much force your circulating blood is putting on the walls of your blood vessels, specifically those in your heart.
Valhalla Wellness & Medical Centers closely monitors the blood pressure of all of his patients because it’s such a vital component of their overall wellbeing. If necessary, Dr. Nye will help you take steps to make sure it’s at its best level.
Many people aren’t even aware that they have high blood pressure (also known as hypertension). Knowing if it’s elevated is crucial because you’re then conscious that extra strain is being put on your arteries and heart.

Blood pressure is measured by its systolic pressure (when the heart beats) and its diastolic pressure (when the heart relaxes). Those figures are imperative when examining your overall health. When recorded, the systolic number is above or before the diastolic number; for example, 120/80, which is considered a healthy level.

Some of these actions can lower your pressure in just weeks, while others can take a bit longer.
