The Surprising Dangers of Low Blood Pressure: Why You Need to Monitor Your Numbers



Low Blood Sugar: Can it be a Problem?

If you're monitoring your health, you may be getting congratulated for having low blood pressure. However, did you know that having too low blood pressure can also be a significant problem? In this article, we'll explore the implications of low blood pressure and how it can affect your body's ability to function optimally.


Your blood pressure plays a crucial role in ensuring that your body functions properly. It's responsible for delivering essential nutrients to your organs and tissues. When your blood pressure is too low, blood may not be getting deep enough into your tissues to deliver these necessary nutrients. This can lead to a range of issues, including fatigue, brain fog, and even poor mitochondrial function.


Polytherapy Approach

When it comes to improving your health, taking a polytherapy approach is often the best course of action. This approach involves tackling multiple issues simultaneously to achieve optimal results. One of the key principles of polytherapy is to focus on the low-hanging fruit. In other words, you want to address the most straightforward issues first before moving on to more complex ones.


Sweet Spot for Blood Pressure

While it's essential to maintain a healthy blood pressure, what exactly is considered healthy? The sweet spot for blood pressure is around 120 over 80. You can monitor your blood pressure in the morning and then again after standing up. If your blood pressure is consistently low, it's important to monitor it for an extended period until it normalizes.


Live Case Study

Let's take a look at a real-life case study. One of my clients is a 71-year-old female who lives outside of the country. On October 19th, her blood pressure went up, and we found a problem that no one else had detected. She was slightly anemic, which was causing her low blood pressure. This anemia was also leading to other issues such as fatigue and brain fog. By addressing her anemia, we were able to improve her blood pressure and overall health significantly.


Conclusion

Low blood pressure can be just as problematic as high blood pressure. It's essential to monitor your blood pressure and take action if it's consistently low. Focus on the low-hanging fruit first and take a polytherapy approach to ensure optimal results. By doing so, you'll be well on your way to achieving optimal health and wellness.
