High blood pressure?

Do you have Primary or Essential Hypertension?

Over 90% of cases of high blood pressure are called Primary or Essential hypertension because there is no identifiable medical cause. And because the lifestyle and emotional factors which cause this form. of high blood pressure need motivation and action on your part to change, doctors can usually only work to manage your symptoms. For many people, this means a lifetime of medication, constant uncertainty and worry about their future.
For those who are willing to take action to help themselves, however, there is an alternative.

Some may want to improve their memory, concentration or self-confidence. Others to manage chronic pain or dental nerves, or have a painless childbirth. Clients often say they have tried using will-power or other methods, but have not achieved the changes wanted.
