Hypertension

What is hypertension?

Hypertension is the medical term for raised blood pressure. Blood pressure is the force needed to maintain circulation around your body. If your blood pressure is too high, it increases your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

Doctors have estimated that around a third of people in England have high blood pressure, although many may be unaware of it as there are not always obvious signs or symptoms.

Whilst hypertension may result from disease, over 90% of cases of high blood pressure have no clear medical cause - doctors call this "primary" or "essential" hypertension.

There are many emotional and lifestyle factors that may increase the risk of developing primary hypertension. For example:

  • feelings of anger, lack of control, conflict or stress
  • obesity, excess salt or alcohol, smoking, or insufficient exercise

In today's busy world, some doctors may not have the time to find and address the unique combination of factors for each patient. They may focus on managing the symptoms, rather than tackling the underlying issue(s).

The Hypnotension™ programme

Hypnotension™ is a unique programme that aims to help you to identify the emotional and lifestyle factors that may be causing your hypertension, and find ways to lower your blood pressure naturally.

This programme is not meant to replace any treatment or guidance given by GPs – you should continue to follow your GP's advice.

Hypnotension™ is used alongside any medication, helping you back to better health.
