London, UK (PRWEB UK) 15 February 2013
February is National Heart Month, organised by the British Heart Foundation.
It aims to highlight the importance of looking after heart health, and it promotes taking exercise, eating a healthy diet, and awareness of the dangers such as smoking, drinking, high blood pressure, and stress.
There are about 2.6 million people in the UK living with Coronary Heart Disease and high blood pressure is a leading cause of death worldwide.
According to WHO statistics, high blood pressure causes a fifth of all deaths around the globe, and is responsible for nearly two thirds of strokes and just under half of all heart disease.
Getting blood pressure under control in National Heart Month is one of the best things that people can do for heart health, and there is plenty of research that highlights the need for people with high blood pressure to change their lifestyles. However study after study has shown that for the majority of people that is easier said than done.
Paul Howard, from Hypnotension says, “We know that there are many emotional and lifestyle factors that affect high blood pressure but many people simply do not know where to start because the effects combine to create chronic stress. The hypertensive mind is effectively on red alert most of the time.”
“Our Hypnotension practitioners help their clients to identify and address the emotional and lifestyle factors that are unique to them. They use proven cognitive techniques and behavioural coaching to help them lower or in many cases even return their blood pressure to normal levels.”
The effects of lowering blood pressure naturally can be dramatic and studies have shown that even a reduction of 2.5/1.4mmHg would still slash the risk of dying from a stroke by 12-14% and heart disease by 9-10%.
The Hypnotension programme is an interesting, simple and natural approach to lower blood pressure that works alongside conventional medical treatment to offer hypertension suffers a chance to take control of the lifestyle factors affecting their blood pressure
The programme is delivered by a large network of qualified Hypnotension practitioners in the UK and it is growing rapidly around the globe. Certified Hypnotension Practitioners are listed on the Hypnotension website.
