Hypertension and Stress

Hypertension is a condition in which symptoms are usually not present. In some cases, an individual may feel lethargic, headache, and increased urination. Hypertension does not have a specific cause, but rather many possible underlying health diagnoses, such as obesity, improper kidney function, hormonal imbalances, and heart disease. These symptoms combined are usually classified as metabolic syndrome. Other causes may included emotional stress, anxiety, and improper diet. In Chinese medicine, Hypertension can be easily preventative and regulated by laser acupuncture, acupuncture, and proper nutritional/lifestyle advice. 

Signs & Symptoms

Hypertension symptoms are difficult to diagnose because they usually do not appear. Possible signs include: 

  • High blood pressure (130-139 mm Hg/ 80-89 mm Hg) or higher
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Frequent urination
  • Headache

*It is best to prevent Hypertension by primarily decreasing the risk for the at-risk populations (120 – 129 mm Hg / 80 mm Hg). 


Each patient diagnosed with hypertension usually has similar causes:

  • Obesity
  • Hormonal imbalances (such as diabetes for example)
  • Kidney dysfunction
  • Heart disease 
  • Anxiety, and stress or emotional strains
  • Poor nutrition
