Effects of High Blood Pressure
Chronic elevations of blood pressure impact your heart, kidneys, eyes, brain and every other organ in your body.
This causes you to age much faster and puts you at higher risks for strokes and heart attack.
At Interactive Health Clinic, we look at every aspect of your health to determine the causes of your high blood pressure and then develop a functional approach to treating your condition. This includes lifestyle changes, medication changes, functional foods such as ground flaxseeds, hibicus tea and celery and a comprehensive analysis of your hormones, and environmental exposures which all contribute to the cause of your blood pressure elevations.
