Secondary hypertension is much by urinary system diseases, caused by intracranial disease and endocrine disorders, etc. The symptoms of primary hypertension.

Whether primary or secondary, high blood pressure Why would it? Western medicine is now concluded: reasons not yet identified. Essential hypertension that there may be genetic factors, there may be individual factors. Doctors believe it now means not isolated in the end is what causes hypertension fact that they think high blood pressure can cause damage to the human heart, kidney function, so symptomatic treatment, taking dilation of blood vessels way to reduce blood pressure, reduce heart, lung, kidney burden. This is the method of Western medicine treatment of hypertension.
Its role is a single, high blood pressure because it makes your blood vessels pressure, and with the method of dilation of blood vessels, as long as the medication, blood vessels expand, the pressure is reduced, the blood pressure will come down, and you feel comfortable . It is because treatment for unity, determines the efficiency of Western medicine treatment of hypertension is very high, a lot of medicine to go down on the tubes.

Especially if you eat more, especially lipid thick, low pressure is particularly high, belonging sputum silt each knot, then we have to use Chinese medicine phlegm Stasis approach.
That is, the same was diagnosed with high blood pressure, Chinese medicine treatment is necessary according to each person’s situation, different treatment. Chinese medicine according to different clinical characteristics, different states. Traditional look, smell, and asked, checking the pulse mode manner, combine judgment, to be adjusted. If high blood pressure is caused by hyperactivity, up yin yang lowering blood pressure can be down. If it is the result of sputum silt each knot, it shows you where the blood vessels have become thick, the need to increase pressure on the blood vessels, the blood pressure to be able to restore the elasticity of blood vessels to be able to enter the normal state of the process.
There are many points of the human body, and patients with hypertension is often used acupuncturepoints: hegu, quchi, shenyu, qihai, guanyuan, zusanli, fenglong, jiexi, fengchi, yinlingquan, guangming, xiaxi,sanyinjiao, taixi, yumen,xingjian. In practice, the patient should be dialectical acupoints.
