More often than not we hear about all the medical concerns regarding high blood pressure (aka Hypertension). But what about those who suffer from LOW blood pressure? Is it a concern? Should we address it? The answer is YES.

We need our blood pressure to be within an optimal range for overall health. General guidelines for blood pressure are usually 120/80, however we always want to consider bio-individuality. If your blood pressure is below 90/60, talk to your doctor to find the root cause.

Symptoms of Low Blood Pressure

Not everyone experiences symptoms, but check your blood pressure if you are experiencing the following:

  • Lightheadedness
  • Dizziness
  • Feeling woozy
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Fainting (may occur if you get up too fast)

Causes of Hypotension

Some general causes of low blood pressure are:

  • Dehydration
  • Fever/Infection
  • Anemia
  • Adrenal or Thyroid Abnormalities
  • Medication for High Blood Pressure (if these types of pharmaceuticals are not closely monitored)

Getting to the Origin of the Problem

Your body wants you to LIVE.

Unfortunately, the Standard American Diet (SAD) cannot provide it with the nutrients it requires to function properly. Your body can compensate for a significant portion of your life, but eventually, dysfunction (disease) will occur whether that be cancer, coronary heart disease, dementia, strokes, etc…symptoms like abnormal blood pressure are your body’s cry for help.

Take Action: Change your Lifestyle

  1. Drink more (clean) water (maybe add a pinch of sea salt to help low blood pressure).
  2. Eat Paleo
  3. Get outside in the Sunshine
  4. Increase sleep (at least 8-9 hours each night)
  5. Chiropractic Adjustments (can help reset the autonomic tone which will assist blood vessel function).
  6. Get tested to evaluate vitamin and mineral levels. Nutrient deficiencies could have an effect on blood pressure levels.
