Dealing With Impossible Hypertension

Mar 13, 2008
Over and over again I receive emails from people who have tried everything to lower their - up to 210/140 high - blood pressure. They've been on medications for years and take every supplements known to man.

Like that wasn't enough, they also tell me their father, mother, grandfather and grandfather plus several aunts and uncles suffered soaring blood pressure. So it must be in their genes, right?

Most often, their question is pretty much the same...

"Is this program really going to help me in this critical condition?"

I have decided to answer this question in this blog, in view of the fact that it is so common.

You see, hypertension is of course partly caused by genetic factors or wrong bad modern days diet. But that is only a small part of the problem. Emotions and thinking patterns plays much bigger part.

We're reacting to stimulation around us almost 24 hours a day. At least the 16 hours we're awake, we're constantly under some kind of pressure. Either internal or external. And our body is not fit to deal with this stimulation. After all, the technology world is only a few decades old.

We do not realize how irresistible this constant stimulation is as we are very much used to it.

Let me take a little example from the simple world I grew up in.

When I was a young boy, my father and mother lived in the city but had a farm in the country side. My grandmother took care of the farm.

I loved spending all summers on the farm. And more than anything, I loved the horses.

In the farm we could ride for a long period without requiring to cross a road. There are only a few tractors present and we did had a few cars but were far between.

When the youngsters were four years old, we began training them in the summers, though they were calm and easy to handle we took it slowly. By the second or third year in training we brought them to the stable in the city during the winters.

Now here comes the important part...

Perhaps you won't believe, as to how frightened these young horses were when they faced the city. These fast cars, screaming people and big houses all over the places. Even in their quiet stable area, The stimulation was overpowering them. They use to run away or freeze or just shook all over when we use to take them out for riding.

How did we help them in overcoming this ?

On the first hand, we took them out with an older horse who was very much relaxed and unaffected by the static. The youngster became more confident that everything after this.

But more essentially...

During evenings after feeding them with hays and when everything was quiet we use to spent hours brushing and combing them. The youngsters use to enjoy his treatment so much that he use to close his eyes and even stopped eating even if the hay was right in front of him and we saw that we were making progress.

Soon, the traffic and static didn't seem to bother the youngster as much. He had his focused brake in the evening and that gave his nerve system enough soothing so he could deal with the difficult tasks during the day. The tension in their back disappeared and you could feel them relax.

Nowadays it is much different. The horses are more used to the fast world. Even if they come straight from the countryside. But they still benefit a lot from getting their long quiet brushing in the evening. And I think I benefit just as much from them.

Similar to the youngsters in training, we not only have to deal with the fast world around us. But we do need to tackle the difficult tasks and people every day. This is the reason why our nerve system is on high gear and is tense since morning till night.

Even when everything is quiet and there is no external stimulation for a short while, our brains won't let go. It keeps spinning either with all the worries we're facing or resentment about something "somebody did to us" during the day. Our system is still in the high gear. And our blood pressure may be worse than ever.

Even to the last moment before we fall asleep, the mind keeps on going.

Hypertension might be genetic for some of us, blood pressure might be temporarily flared up due to our diet. But the main reason is our head like our own emotions and mind, which actively bugs us from morning to night.

Meditation has been shown to be somewhat effective for hypertension. But I don't know many people who have the discipline to sit and quiet their mind for 30-60 minutes a day. The mind often begins spinning with more force than ever.

There is totally no efforts required for my focused break exercises. All you need to do is to follow the direction on the audio. The second exercise is little bit like the feeling in the stable when we groom the horses when everything is quiet. The first exercise is more like a technique which I learned from one of the famous horse whisperer, who is still alive.

Everyone can start following these exercises and benefit very quickly. You don't require to learn anything and no skills to practice. It works only because you want to work and it doesn't matters how bad your situation may look.

And the best part is, it gives you a little time off from the world. A time with no worries and no pressure. That's what I like the most about them. So enjoy.
