Talk To Me About Hypertension

Hypertension, the medical term for high blood pressure, is a common condition when the blood vessels have persistently raised pressure. The vessels carry blood from the heart to all parts of the human body. Blood is pumped into the vessels every time the heartbeats. Blood pressure is created by the force of blood pushing against the walls of the blood vessels (arteries). To put it simply, the more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure. 

Blood pressure is determined by two numbers. The higher number (systolic pressure) is the strength at which your heart pumps blood all over your body, while the lower number (diastolic pressure) is the resistance to the blood flow in the blood vessels. Both of the pressure is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). The following is a general guide of blood pressure by the NHS:

  • Between 90/60mmHg and 120/8-mmHg are considered as the ideal blood pressure.
  • Between 140/90mmHg or higher (or 150/90mmHg or higher for anyone over 80 years old) are considered as high blood pressure.
  • Between 120/80mmHg and 140/90 usually means a person is at risk of developing high blood pressure.

Treating Asthma

Asthma is a chronic and long term disease of the airways. It is a condition when the airways in the lung get inflamed and narrowed, which restricts air supply. The inflammation causes the airways to be exceptionally sensitive to irritations and increases their vulnerability to an allergic reaction. The increased sensitivity will cause a reaction. The muscles in charge of controlling the airways tighten and trigger an overproduction of mucus. Asthma causes periods of chest tightness, coughing wheezing, and shortness of breath.

It affects everyone regardless of age and it often starts during childhood. It is the most chronic disease for children. People who have asthma may experience mild to severe symptoms that can happen every day or rarely. The severe symptom is known as asthma attacks, which happens when the symptoms are at their peak and might begin suddenly. 

Asthma is serious. It can even be dangerous and fatal. About 250,000 people around the world die every year because of it. If you have asthma, you need proper treatment to live well. Without the treatment, you might have to visit the emergency room frequently. The exact cause of asthma is unknown, and the cause may vary for

All Coughed Out Chronic Bronchitis

The body clears harmful things in your lungs by coughing, but if you cough way too much, you might have chronic bronchitis. It is a more serious type of bronchitis that occurs when the lining of your bronchial tubes is inflamed and irritated. Chronic bronchitis is a dangerous condition, but it will not suddenly happen to you. It’s characterized by bronchitis that goes on for a long time and does not go away. If you have coughed for at least three months over the course of 2 years, you might have it, and you need to call your doctor right away. Most people who have the disease are around 44 to 65 years old.

When the lining of your bronchial tubes experiences a constant inflammation, an excessive amount of sticky mucus will build up in your airways. That sticky mucus will limit the amount of airflow that goes in and out of your lungs. The blockage of the airflow will result in coughing and difficulty breathing. The inflammation may also damage the cilia, which are the hairs that help keep the airways clear of germs. If the cilia do not work properly, the airways become a breeding ground

My Knee Hurts

The Human knee is a complex joint that has plenty of components and is sensitive to injury. Most of those injuries can be successfully treated with rehabilitation exercises and bracing. However, most doesn’t mean all. If you have a severely torn meniscus, then that is an injury that will probably require surgery to correct. Here we will explain the common knee injuries and how to deal with them.

Common knee injuries


  • Dislocation


A dislocation happens when some or all of the bones in the knee are dislocated or out of place. For instance, the patella can swing from its position, or the tibia and the femur can be forcefully moved out of alignment. Dislocation is caused by a strong impact such as sports-related contact, motor crash, big fall, etc. In other cases, it can be because of the abnormal structure of a person’s knee.




This is a typical sports injury that occurs when pivoting, cutting, twisting or being tackled. Aging is another risk factor to meniscal tears. Sometimes a simple twist when getting up from bed or a chair can cause a tear.

And even self-conscious women hunch forward to hide their breasts leading to further exaggeration of pain. The weight of the breasts which is predominantly made up of glandular tissue and fat cells, too makes them sag and bend lower. The body
