Low Blood Pressure and AK

          Many patients (as well as physicians) do not recognize that low blood pressure can be a problem. Of course, if blood pressure becomes too low, physicians will recognize it as a problem. One of the components of shock is extremely low blood pressure. In this case, it is a medical emergency. Here we are talking about people who have blood pressure that is a bit below normal, but not life-threatening.

The fact of the matter is that if your blood pressure is too low, you probably don’t feel very good. You may experience fatigue, dizziness or even headaches. If a chiropractor practicing applied kinesiology balances your nervous system and nutrition, it can help normalize low blood pressure. Patients suffering from chronic fatigue and other symptoms often begin to feel much better.

Blood pressure can be too low for a variety of reasons. Thiamine deficiency (a B vitamin) is one possible cause. People who are low in thiamin often wake up in the middle of the night, unable to fall back to sleep.

Poor adrenal function can also cause low blood pressure. It can also cause othostatichypotension. Orthostatichypotension exists when a person’s blood pressure does not rise as it should when he or she stands up. Is severe enough, the individual may experience dizziness when he or she first stands up. If the blood pressure is taken with the patient lying down and again immediately when they stand up, it is easy to see if orthostatichypotensionis a problem.

Ordinarily blood pressure increases while exercising, to meet the body’s needs. Sometimes there is a lack of this cardiovascular response to exercise. This can cause fatigue that develops as the exercise progresses.

Balancing the body’s structure and chemistry utilizing applied kinesiology and chiropractic can solve many health problems by addressing the cause. Please feel free to call our office to schedule a consultation to discuss this or any other health issues you may have.
