Heartburn. It’s something that hardly needs an introduction. Most people have experienced it at least once in their lifetime. For some, it’s an occasional annoyance; for others, a serious medical problem. But what discerns one from the other? When and why should it be treated? And what exactly can be done about it? These are the questions that will be addressed today.
Perhaps you’ve been told you have “high blood pressure.” Or maybe you checked it yourself one day and noticed that it was 146/90. What now?
Today I will discuss some ways in which you can improve your own blood pressure without taking medications. But before I do, let’s first answer an important question: What is hypertension and what’s the big deal?
Yesterday, in response to the “Ask This Doc” Q & A, I received many excellent questions, a lot of which are common concerns that I frequently encounter.
Therefore, I am posting some of those questions here today, along with my responses. I hope you will find them helpful as well.
If you would like to ask me a health-related question, I am always glad to answer them. Just click below to go to the original post.
