I am a spiritual mentor, teaching yoga and meditation. My life style is calm, cool, connected, centered..but my blood pressure is still going up, despite medicines etc. It is normally 150/90 but sometimes 160/100. So tell me what could be the reason? Is it genetic? My mother also has high blood pressure.
Unfortunately medicine does not yet know the cause of most high blood pressure. Genetics certainly plays a role. Having relatives with high blood pressure is a risk factor for developing the disease. It is known that lowering stress, regular exercise, and maintaining a healthy weight all help with blood pressure control. I am sure your blood pressure would be worse if you weren’t a spiritual mentor.
