The Good news: it has been estimated that three out of four women with high blood pressure know they have it
The Bad news: for women with high blood pressure is that fewer than one in three are doing anything about it. AND, it has been estimated that more than half of all the woman alive today will die of heart disease.
High Blood pressure, or hypertension, is one of the leading risk factors for heart attacks. Some experts consider it an indication that blockage of the arteries is already present.
Unfortunately, nearly half of all women over fifty-five have hypertension, by age sixty-five, that proportion rises to 60 percent. Controlling high blood pressure helps to lower the risk of heart attack and stroke by about 30 percent, but to do this, most patients need to be on blood pressure medication for life.
Vedic Meditation and Your Blood Pressure
There is some good news for women with high blood pressure, especially, those who want to avoid or reduce their dependence on medication. Vedic Meditation can be very effective at lowering blood pressure.
Vedic Meditation is good not only for your heart but for disease prevention in general.
The regular practice of Vedic Meditation strengthens the body’s inner intelligence in a holistic and integrated way, leading to healthier, more balanced functioning not only in the cardiovascular system but in the immune system, central nervous system, and probably other systems of the body as well.
