High Blood Pressure / Hypertension

To my friends only,

I assume you are now still pretty young but the ppl surrounding you may not.

Are you one of the relatives to those hypertension, or more commonly known as high blood pressure(HBP)'s victims?

Have you been one of those suffering the change in your family members who unknowingly became the pre-hypertension victims, in terms of like their living habits, attitude change & etc? Did you take note of their earlier symptoms, physically and mentally?

I wanna share with you as I WAS once the sufferer. I emphasized here, I WAS. Luckily everything has been in control now, so lucky that it was actually not too long ago.

I tried to recall the beginning onset on this disease, which at that time it was actually the 'changes' that were not noticed by us.

They always felt HOT like steaming pot. They tend to sweat a lot. Anywhere, anytime. Slightly moving a bit already sweating like hell.

They were very 'mang zhang', temperamental or easily throwing temper. Stress, anxiety, tension.

They couldn't sleep at night or have diffculty in sleeping. Insomnia.

They tend to get tired easily. Fatigue. Easily get headache. Easily sicked.

Some organs like eyes might be not able to focus properly during driving. Blurred vision.

Luckily it's a normal flu that revealed the disease. If not we still thought that it was due to some other environmental factors or changes in hormone, sort of.

Once a person started medication under a doctor's prescription, then you and I should 'common sense-ly' know that it will be a 'forever' tag until ....*you know, touchwood*.

Most of the time those who suffered from HBP are also suffereing from high cholesterol. It's pretty hard to lower down the blood pressure (target <120/80mmhg)>, even by enforcing yourself to become a vegetarian.

The medication provided by doctor will be the most helping you to maintain the blood pressure to a controllable stage. Once you stop taking it, it rises. Most often the number of pills that you need to take are getting more and more as time goes on.

Morover, all drug treatments have side effects. Now is hypertension. Years later on? kidney failure?

OK lah, I dah kena, takkan it's too late? Wouldn't it be some ways for us to 'rescue' ourselves since we dah 'INSAF'?!

Case 1:
"OMG! I've been diagnosed to be in a pre-hypertension group and do I still have chance to 'rescue' myself from taking medication life long?"

Case 2:
"I've been suffering hypertension for so many f* years. Is there any ways to help me get rid of it? (sound ridiculously!) or at least reducing my dosage on those 'western' drugs?"

I am writing for the welfare of everybody. I am not attached with any direct sales bodies. I don't sell nor collect points. It's not for charity either. You need to pay by yourself. No money no need to consider also loh.

Oh ya, it doesn't involve any spiritual bodies too. Not asking you to go ang kong keng lah, don't worry. Not traditional sinseh either.

Not forcing you to go tai chi or whatever gong(1) or exercise, although it's a MUST lah ok, come on! for the sake of you health.

It's pretty hard to pursuade or convince a person with HBP or diabetes. Only those with open heart, who has the 'why not have a try?' attitude will benefit from it.

如果你曾經是高血壓家族的一份子, 那將心比心, 若你的家庭成員有幸'根除' 了它, 你難道不想分享你的'空頭'? 施比受來得更幸福! (If you were once a family member of the hypertension victims, and by all means they have successfully combating it, don't you wanna share your kang tao? To give is more blissful than to receive!)

p/s: I only wanna share this with my friends or someone whom I know.
