High Blood Pressure and Anxiety


High blood pressure and anxiety are often found together, but does this mean that anxiety causes high blood pressure?

Studies have not shown any long term direct link between high blood pressure and anxiety. However, even though anxiety does not cause persistent high blood pressure, it can and often does cause temporary spikes in your blood pressure. Even though the high blood pressure is not persistent, in these cases, these spikes have the potential to do a lot of damage to your vascular system. The more frequent these episodes occur, the more damage your system absorbs.

If your episodes of anxiety are frequent, the combination of high blood pressure and anxiety together can do damage to the blood vessels, kidneys and your heart.  If the blood vessels in your kidney are damaged, they become less efficient in removing waste and fluids from your body - causing your blood pressure to raise even more. Uncontrolled high blood pressure and anxiety can lead to stroke, heart attack, and congestive heart failure.

The Body Back Buddy is by far the best hook massage tool in my collection for a number of reasons.

First off, I also own the standard S-Hook as well as the Theracane and from my experience with all three, this one is the winner by a long shot.

The S-Hook's main advantage is the ability to take it apart, which makes it very compact for travel purposes. But even still, I like to take the BBB with me unless compact space is absolutely critical.

The Thera-Cane's main advantage is its simplicity. It is one-sided and fairly light-weight compared to the BBB.

Now for the real review, the Body Back Buddy has many advantages over the above mentioned tools.

- 11 knobs in assorted sizes and shapes from small to round to pointy
- Large enough to command and control comfortably
- Handles are angled for better leverage compared to other tools
- Can use on practically every muscle group from abs, chest, shoulders, whole back, quads, hams, feet, neck, etc...
- Great conversation

I am a Chiropractor and I recommend to every patient.

I have practiced chiropractic for 28 years and truly wished I had invented the Real Ease. I personally use the device and I have recommended it for practically all of my patients for the last 5 years. At first it may not feel "good" for the first few sessions, but that doesn't concern me. There are times that braces on teeth don't feel "good" either. The device is designed to help properly restore the normal curve in the neck. I wouldn't recommend using it for anymore than 10 -15 minutes a day.

Even though illustrations on the box show it being used while sitting upright, like in an airline seat, as well as while reclining in bed, I feel the device is useful only while reclining on a firm surface (like the floor). I tell my patients to lay on the floor with their calves up in a chair and relax. It is a great way to spend time in prayer, or meditation or to just catch up on some sleep. But, be sure to set a timer for 10 to 15 minutes.

The Answer to my back pain!

For most of my life I've been practicing all sorts of sports, from football (high school), lacrosse and now Jiu Jitsu (for the last couple of years). Consistently putting my body under intense stress without breaks (I thought I was superman) resulted in severe muscle tension and lower back pain. I travel a lot for amateur competitions and I kept coming across people who would carry a mat with little spikes on it. This mat got me really interested, so when I asked about it I heard nothing but good things. Obviously I was skeptical but thought I had nothing to lose. When I researched acupuncture mats I came across Nayoya and thought I'd give it a try because of the low price.

Within a few days of use (2 times a day; after training & at night for 25 minutes each session), I've felt results that I doubted I would ever have. I actually started going to an acupuncturist recently, but after trying the Nayoya mat I decided to save my money and use it exclusively to test its b

I have a long time, twice-a-day meditation practice which includes breathing techniques, but was curious about this device anyway. So, I bought it on impulse. It is impressive, but simple and easy to use. I'd recommend it to anyone who doesn't have some sort of regular (2-3 times daily) stress-relief practice in place. It's function is simple - you simply breath in, then exhale when the device prompts you to. The tool sort of "teaches" you how to breath based on feedback on the screen, and as you learn to focus on the breath...poof, you stop worrying about other stuff.

After you learn the "how to" part and get regular with your breathing sessions, the additional personal benefit may be more limited. Since I'm already very familiar with using the breath to center myself, this item could become a glorified "breath counter": The ancillary good stuff is that it records a history of how many sessions of breathing I've done and details about same, and the device will always give me feedback on my current sta

In addition to high blood pressure and anxiety being linked, anxiety can also cause negative physical symptoms such as heart palpitation, sweating, stomach pains, and dizziness.

I bought a stress eraser last year and liked it a lot, so I gave it to my son who was stressed out in law school. Instead of replacing it I decided to give EM Wave a try. I think many people have trouble choosing between these two similar items. Maybe I can help. First, I can tell you that both are useful. You probably won't go wrong with either. However, they are quite different and you may prefer one.

Stress Eraser- strengths
Stress Eraser provides true biofeedback in the form of a continuous graph that you can influence by changing your breathing or even thinking. If you follow their instructions you can learn to control the graph and doing so you learn to relax. The unit is solid. It is scientifically valid and it seems like it due to the accurate feedback.

Stress Eraser- weaknesses
To use the stress eraser you must look at the graph that forms on the unit. I can't see it without my glasses. You must also have your finger in the correct position on the unit. That makes it hard to posit

Bought this for my girlfriend for Christmas, despite my family and friends ridicule for it being a stupid gift, it ended up being the best thing I could get her. She always has bad back pains (something on her moms side genetics.) She was really excited about it and said her family tried it out too and loved it. Went from stupid gift idea to being the best gift I've gotten her yet.

I work in a call center and my hands always have to be doing something. I love this silly little stress ball. It's squishy and you can't put it down. It's not foam filled, but gel filled which gives it a great texture to squeeze and fidget with.

Unfortunately, people with high blood pressure and anxiety also tend to gravitate towards unhealthy lifestyle habits such as high fat and high salt foods, alcohol, and  smoking. High cholesterol diets and high blood pressure have been linked beyond dispute. The same is true for smoking and alcohol.

I put this in the microwave (do not exceed two minutes) every night, and take it to bed with me. It keeps me warm and helps my tight neck muscles relax.

I had a buckwheat pillow before. The buckwheat is quite a bit lighter weight, but it doesn't retain heat as well. This flax seed pillow also allows the stuffing to shift around quite a lot so it can go flat in the back of your neck and heavy at the ends of the "u" shape when you're sitting up. So if you want light weight, get the buckwheat. If you want good lasting heat, get this.

I do wish they'd used a darker colored cover.

I was given some exercise balls a few years ago as a gift but they were too large for my hands. I have arthritis in both hands and needed the exercise but the ones I had made it worse. I thought I'd give another try with a smaller size. These looked nice on my computer and the price was good so I thought I'd give them a try. I'm glad I did.

I ordered them on a Sunday and the seller shipped the same day by USPS. I received them Thursday. The little box is just like the picture and the exercise balls are as pictured too. What the seller doesn't mention is that they have a tiny chime. My big #4 exercise balls have a loud chime but this seems much better to me as it is mildly entertaining and doesn't interfere.

The stainless steel is smooth and slick so the balls roll easily against each other and my hands are getting the exercise I need.

I've been using Panicyl for a little over 2 months. I needed something to lesson my fear and anxiety in my general life .. .especially around groups of people.

I started with the 2 capsules but that seemed a little too much as I felt rather disconnected and with low energy. 1 capsule has been better actually giving me somewhat more awareness of my feelings in general without the "panicky" mind stuff.

I had been given Citalophram (10mg) but I could hardly go about my daily life...so I searched on-line and found Panicyl. It cuts the edge off my fear and anxiety while giving me more awareness of my feelings and thoughts...and not hyper.

I have had no side effects.

I was on Paxil for 4 years for anxiety and social agoraphobia. I went off of the paxil when I was pregnant. After my baby was born i decided i didn't want to go back on prescription medicine. Although it did help my anxiety most days, it made me made me very unmotivated. I didn't do house chores and my productivity at work was getting worse every day.

My acupuncturist recommended that I try Anxiety Control, the natural herbal medicine. It is working really well for me. I've been on it for almost a month.

I have been taking the supplement for 4 years and it really works. I find I sleep better, wake up better, and have more balance in my day. When I am stressed, driving long distances, or over-tired, I take 2 capsules a day, and normally I take one. If you go to their website, you can get 6 bottles for $20 a bottle, which is about a year supply.

I do not think Amoryn is the only supplement you should take, but it is the only one I won't miss each day. It has never upset my stomach and I take it in the morning with water. Some people say it is too stimulating to take at night. Taking a good C and B Complex, along with magnesium and iron is important. I have always been pleased with the company and its' product. You need to take it for at least 2-3 weeks before you notice a difference. It may be so subtle that you don't realize it. I become calmer and more rested soon after taking it.

I have suffered from Anxiety for over 15 years, having tried medication, cognitive behavioural therapy etc etc made a decision about 10 years ago to go medication free and to try and balance myself naturally. I have tried a lot of natural supplements including St John's Wort, Valerian and they either don't work or have cumulative side effects which make me go off them.

I'm happy to say A2X works! And it works the first time! There are no side effects! I don't feel dopey or strung out. I usually wake up early in the morning before sunrise feeling anxious, which make me feel like it is a chemical thing, and with A2X I know that I can calmly get up, take the A2X and go back to bed with confidence that I am going to feel OK, my anxiety will be gone and I might even get back to sleep! Now I don't even have to be anxious about my anxiety as I have a tool to deal with it. I have found I have been much more relaxed and less worried about myself because now I have help.

Measures such as diet change and adding more exercise to your daily routine are other ways you can effectively deal with high blood pressure and anxiety.  It is not easy to turn off anxiety, and doing strenuous exercise such as riding a bicycle, running, or any other sport that will get the good endorphins pumping can help you manage episodes of anxiety.

This product is great in that it is very subtle. The night formula has the effect of making you tired so you can fall asleep without the groggy headed feeling in the morning. The daytime formula does not produce noticeable changes right away. However, I noticed a difference after taking on a regular basis that I felt more relaxed overall.

I imagine that if you have serious issues this may not be the right thing for you and something on a prescription strength may be what you need. For those who are suffering from the normal extra stresses in life, it is worth a shot. I've really liked it.

I have horrible anxiety during the day and have always had trouble sleeping at night. I bought this product as a trial run and wasn't too impressed. I usually take Melatonin or Tylonal PM at night and that usually works way better.

Don't let any of these reviews discourage you from buying the product though! Everyone's body is different and reacts to the products differently. What works for me may not work for you. If you really do have anxiety, I would buy this product and see how it works for you.

Eating foods that are fresh and minimally processed can help manage symptoms of both high blood pressure and anxiety.  You should also cut out as much sodium in your diet as possible as well.  If you stay away from packaged foods, and stick to foods that are real and recognizable, you may find yourself feeling better than you ever have in regards to your high blood pressure and anxiety.

When you are under stress, your hormones go into overdrive, as stress can be defined as the flight or fight instinct.  Having this reaction was helpful to our ancestors who lived in caves so that they could find the courage and the ability to fight or run from large predators.  We still react to perceived or real danger the same way, but instead of large predators, we fear public speaking and rejection.

Managing your high blood pressure and anxiety can help you live a longer life, and can make your personal life flourish as well.  When you are not feeling anxious all the time, you can learn to enjoy the simple joys in life again that having high blood pressure and anxiety may have robbed you of.
