Transform Your High Blood Pressure
It is estimated that one adult in every three Americans, or approximately 65 million people have high blood pressure, or hypertension. Those most at risk are smokers, obese adults, those who drink alcohol in excess, or have a family history of high blood pressure.
High blood pressure is when the blood that pumps through the circulatory system is under pressure, or when the force against the walls in your arteries is too great. This “force” can lead to an array of problems such as heart failure, kidney failure, aneurysms, and vision problems, which can lead to blindness.
Hypertension can be caused by a number of circumstances. Diet, excessive salt intake, stress, too little exercise, obesity, smoking, and drinking alcohol excessively can all be contributors. Family history is also a factor which is why examining your lifestyle is absolutely crucial. (Be sure to add potassium to your diet. This is easily done by eating a banana each day).
A compromise to the health and integrity of nervous system communication begins, most commonly, at the brainstem and spinal cord. A misalignment of the top two bones in your neck, from injury or stress can interfere with the proper function of the central nervous system. As these bones misalign it can interrupt communication in the body, blood flow to the brain, and ultimately damage the integrity of the neurological tissues. All of these, contribute to high blood pressure symptoms and in some cases the demylination of the nerves. Upper cervical chiropractic care reinstates the alignment and proper movement of these bones which surround the brainstem and spinal cord, allowing your nervous system to perform at 100%, restore the integrity of the nerves, and heal your body from the inside out.

“I’ve been on High Blood Pressure medicine since I was 26 – over 25 years. Taking all my pills still would only drop my pressure to about 140/95 – many times 150+/100+.
In only 2 months of working with Andrea, my blood pressure has been steady at 130/78. Better yet, I’m off my blood pressure medicine. On my own, I stopped taking it. Now it’s no medicine and it is still that low.” -Mark K., Pleasanton
“I use to suffer from allergies and asthma. I haven’t had an asthma attack at all and my allergies have diminished since I’ve been under Dr. Andrea’s care. I was also on high blood pressure meds along with allergy meds and I am off the blood pressure meds and at an as needed basis with the allergy meds!” -Shelley B., Livermore
