If you find out that you have high blood pressure you can take positive steps to help reduce it in a natural way, long before it becomes a problem.
Wallington, Surrey (PRWEB UK) 6 April 2013
The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy is supporting The World Health Organisation (WHO) in their call for an intensified effort to prevent and control high blood pressure (hypertension).
Globally, high blood pressure is estimated to affect more than one in three adults aged 25 and over, which equates to about one billion people.
High blood pressure is thought to be a significant factor in causing heart disease and strokes, which together make up the world’s number one cause of premature death.
Researchers estimate that high blood pressure affects 30% of the adult UK population, nearly 16 million people, and worryingly it is estimated that up to 50% don’t know that they have high blood pressure. It also increases the risk of conditions such as kidney failure and blindness.
World Health Day is celebrated on 7th April every year to mark the anniversary of the founding of WHO in 1948. Each year, a theme is selected to highlight a priority area of public health concern in the world. This year their focus is on high blood pressure.
Detecting high blood pressure is the first step in preventing and controlling it. On this year’s World Health Day, the Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy is offering complimentary blood pressure checks at their clinics in Surrey. Local residents can simply call up and make an appointment and get their blood pressure measured.
When people know their blood pressure level, they can take steps to control it. The Surrey Institute has specialists trained specifically in dealing with hypertension.
The Hypertension specialists at the Surrey Institute use the Hypnotension programme looks at a variety of lifestyle factors to establish which is likely to be causing or maintaining high blood pressure. These lifestyle factors are then targeted using specific cognitive and hypnotherapeutic techniques to help reduce the client’s blood pressure towards more normal levels.
Paul Howard, Institute Director and Marketing Director for the National Council for Hypnotherapy, said “If you find out that you have high blood pressure you can take positive steps to help reduce it in a natural way, long before it becomes a problem. Over 90% of cases of hypertension have no underlying medical cause, and can be prevented, and even reversed, with a few simple lifestyle changes.”
As well as helping people to control high blood pressure, the Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy is renowned for helping clients to lose weight, stop smoking and remove anxiety and control problem behaviours such as alcohol and drugs.
They also provide high quality hypnotherapy training which is practical, simple and very effective, enabling hundreds of their graduates to leave the Institute with an internationally recognised qualification and the skills to set up in practice immediately after the course and many more people around the country.
They run intensive and weekend hypnotherapy diploma courses throughout the year. Their courses are always done in small groups and The National Council for Hypnotherapy, the première hypnotherapy governing body in the UK, externally accredits the diploma.
