Hypertension and Psychological Health in the 21st Century

Hypertension is also known as high blood pressure. A high systolic blood pressure indicates patient’s arteries are experiencing stress. A high diastolic pressure indicates there are stressors that cause cortisol to increase resulting in faster heart rates. Doctor’s treatment plan for patients with HBP includes medication, diet and exercise. The treatment plan for patients who have HBP resulting from life stress should include psychiatric care. The treatment plan for HBP requires a holistic lifelong healthy lifestyle. The mind, body and soul can have a positive or negative effect on a patient’s BP.
