Blood pressure. We all have it and for the majority of us it’s something that we don’t even think of. Our blood pressure’s normal and we live our lives as we want to.

However, for a significant majority, this is not the case. According to the World Heart Federation 970 million people suffer from high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. About 330 million of these live in the developed world, with 80 million living in the USA.

And the problem is predicted to get worse, with sufferers of hypertension rising to a staggering 1.56 billion in 2025.

And it’s not just high blood pressure people suffer from. Although nowhere near as prevalent, a significant minority of people suffer from low blood pressure.

Abnormal blood pressure can manifest itself a number of ways ranging from dizziness and fatigue to serious heart problems and ultimately death.

Despite the severe consequences of this disease, there are some simply and easy things that can be done to prevent or manage it.
