Blood pressure that is too high is known as arterial hypertension. Blood pressure that is too low is known as hypotension.
Blood Pressure
If you often feel exhausted for no reason or become woozy after standing for long periods, feel dizzy while taking a nice hot shower, experience the nausea or lightheadedness, have a physician evaluate your blood pressure.

Any level of blood pressure puts mechanical stress on the arterial walls. The higher the pressure, the more stress that is present. At branch points in blood vessels, this stress becomes a shearing force, capable of injuring the tender lining of the blood vessels, the endothelium. Elevated shearing force on the endothelium, along with other factors (nutritional, inflammatory, toxic) may contribute to the development of atherosclerosis.

How Dead is Your Diet?
Dead foods are foods that have been cooked. They have lost their highly beneficial enzymes, nutrients, and their life energy. They have been stripped of the majority of their vitamins, minerals, and cancer preventing phytonutrients. It is well known that heat causes unfavourable chemical changes in food. Many naturopathic doctors even state that "cooking food creates a host of compounds that the body is not designed to metabolize." More>

Healthy Oranges
ORANGES are a great way to get your vitamin C, which may reduce risk of many disease, but you may be tossing away some of the fruit's most healthful parts-flavonoids cluster in the orange's peel and white, pithy part underneath.

A smear of orange marmalade, made with jellied orange peel can give you some of these healthful chemicals, which may reduce risk of lung, stomach and cervical cancers. 

A compound formed naturally in the stomach's juices during digestion is believed to be a factor in gastric cancers. This is especially true among people who eat processed rather than fresh foods. In a Chinese study, researchers gave people two grams of a powder made from dried orange peel after  each meal. The powder lowered the amount of these toxic compounds by 53 % in those with healthy stomachs and by 62 % in those who already had gastric cancer.
