If you have high blood pressure (hypertension), you are one of the many American’s dealing with this dangerous health condition. High blood pressure means that a person’s blood is hitting the walls of veins and arteries harder than it should. This is now the number one cause of death in developed lands.
High Blood Pressure A Growing Problem
Despite its prevalence, many in the US continue to underestimate the dangers of hypertension. Life expectancy is on the rise, perhaps giving some a feeling of invincibility. But the nation is also plagued with poor health practices. This leads to more chronic health conditions like high blood pressure. More than 70 million people suffer from hypertension in the US (age 21 and over). That is about one-third of adults.
What can high blood pressure lead to? Related conditions include:

Natural Hypertension Relief
The standard of care in the US for hypertension is the same as with most other conditions. Medication is prescribed. The side effects are often nearly as bad as the health condition itself. However, since side effects are better than death, most just deal with it. But is there a natural alternative?
Researchers have demonstrated that a C1 or C2 subluxation can result in all sorts of health problems. Could this be the underlying cause of your high blood pressure? The only way to find out is to have your upper cervical spine examined by a specialist. Dr. Kyrie Kleinfelter of St. Charles, Illinois has the training and imaging technology to identify such a problem.
The position of the C1 and C2 vertebrae can affect the flow of blood throughout a person’s body. Once a misalignment has been corrected, blood flow can return to normal. This often affects blood pressure as well. Dr. Kelinfelter can identify if a misalignment is the potential cause of your condition. Then a treatment plan can be set up that meets your unique needs.
If you want to find a natural solution to your hypertension, upper cervical chiropractic is the place to start.
