When most of us think of someone with high blood pressure (hypertension), we automatically think of an overweight, middle aged executive, that is wound up really tight and explodes at the slightest provocation. So, anyone that doesn’t fit that image feels pretty safe. But unfortunately, hypertension can occur in anyone, even in children.

In this week’s show, I discuss what blood pressure is, why you should care what yours is and what you can do to prevent or combat high blood pressure.

Some references I used while researching this show are The New Wellness Encyclopedia, Mayo Clinic and American Heart Association.

This week, I was interviewed by iProng magazine. Here is the web version and a direct link to the even higher quality PDF version. So, go check it out and learn more about me!

The Blog Posts for this week are:
