The Importance of Blood Pressure Monitoring

Why blood pressure monitoring is important and when and how to do it.

Even if you’re not worried about developing high blood pressure, blood pressure monitoring is extremely important to your health. I’m Heart Healthy Henry and I’m going to explain why blood pressure monitoring is so important.

The Silent Killer

High blood pressure isn’t called the silent killer for no reason. Even if you’re not experiencing any prior symptoms, you can suddenly experience a heart attack or stroke due to high blood pressure. That’s why blood pressure monitoring is so important. It may be the only way you can catch your high blood pressure before it is too late.

Monitoring Your Blood Pressure

There are different ways blood pressure monitoring can occur. If you can afford one, you should probably buy a quality blood pressure monitor from your local drug store. This way you will be able to monitor your blood pressure on a regular basis from the comfort of your own home.

If you can’t afford a blood pressure monitor, you’ll need to stop by your local drug store to see if they have a blood pressure machine that you can use. Many stores have these machines available by the prescription area and they are there for customers to use free of charge.

If you do not wish to buy a blood pressure monitor and your local drug store does not have a machine for you to use for your blood pressure monitoring, you’ll want to make regular appointments with your doctor (every six months to a year) to have your blood pressure monitored.

Managing Your Blood Pressure

In addition to blood pressure monitoring, blood pressure management is also important. By managing your blood pressure, you’ll be less likely to suffer the deadly complications caused by high blood pressure.

Managing your blood pressure includes eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly and taking dietary supplements like the one located at

With the right combination of blood pressure monitoring and blood pressure management you’ll be more likely to catch high blood pressure before damage can be done, should it occur.
