Electro Acupuncture Lowers Blood Pressure

Acupuncture is a unique treatment that is effective at reducing blood pressure. High blood pressure refers to a situation where blood starts exerting pressure against the wall of the arteries, veins and the chambers of the heart. Over time, this pressure can damage the lining of the blood vessel and can also lead to arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).

Some acute symptoms of high blood pressure include sudden dizziness, flushed face, nervousness, severe headaches, difficult breathing, nose bleeds and insomnia. Many times, people are unaware they have elevated blood pressure because they do not experience symptoms. Uncontrolled high blood pressure is a very serious health concern that can lead to heart disease and increased risk for stroke.

The good news is, by optimizing your dietary intake, exercising, managing your stress and getting electro acupuncture the odds of lowering your blood pressure is greatly in your favor. Acupuncture combined with electrical stimulation can lower blood pressure according to multiple research studies. Needles are inserted on certain points on the wrist, forearm and hand, which are hooked up to a low frequency electro current. This procedure excites the opioid chemicals in the brain and reduces excitatory responses of the cardiovascular systems. This eventual decrease in heart activity and need for oxygen can lower blood pressure to a great extent.
