Strap it on and watch the figures soar as you get infuriated by stupid comments on HUK.

I was told a while back that the best time to take a reading is as soon as you wake up in the morning.

This will give you a baseline value, as your heart rate won't be increased due to movement or caffeine etc.

Can't beat a visit to see the nurse for your yearly check up .

No, your blood pressure varies through the day so its important to take it at various times to get a good overall benchmark. Yes, you you should always avoid taking shortly after food/caffein/a fag etc. Home monitoring is the best way to understand your blood pressure throughly, as a one off reading at with the nurse can be misleading. Plus, some suffer 'white coat syndrome' (only high readings at GP's). If anyone has concerns over BP, get your own clinically validated monitor like the one in this post by the OP and monitor at home, reporting readings to your GP.

Drink some decent quality beetroot juice everyday, change your diet to a healthy one, exercise at least 3 times a week and stop worrying which includes indulging yourself in the worry of concerning yourself over your blood pressure and whether it's too high.

Ah yes, because if you don't check it then it cannot be high can it??

Absolutely but these are worthless if you've a condition that effects the regularity of your Heat Rate (such as AF) as the BP reading will be inaccurate.

Do they do the large cuffs for these?

Ignorance is bliss.

I was diagnosed with high blood pressure when I was 18 years old. I cycled about 50km a day to uni and back at that time. My blood pressure was still high. So no, simply doing sports and dieting won't fix it. It will improve it, but not fix it.

Guess what: I have seen quite a few people in rehab with a stroke. Age? 30-40 years old. High blood pressure is a risk factor, as is alcohol and smoking. I don't say you should obsess about it, but if you have high blood pressure you better get it treated and check it regularly.

The duty of the physical heart is to circulate blood - seemingly - but as … The duty of the physical heart is to circulate blood - seemingly - but as the blood is passing through the heart, it becomes "affected"/"influenced" by [the mood of] the heart. The Physical Heart "rules"/"presides" over The Left, oka Femininity, with The Liver "presiding" over The Right/Masculinity. The Heart is responsible for one's past thoughts or Subjectivity/Emotionality, which according to the traditions of Quackery & Handler, does not exist materially, whereas The Liver is responsible for one's physical and intellectual "thoughts"/activities - at least not according to Quackery & Handler, traditionally or scientifically.As for the totality of Blood Pressure, which is beyond what The Tag-Alongs of The Repetitive Tentacle of The Bookie, Quackery & Handler, could see/sense and instrument/detect, it is "presided-upon" by The Cervical, oka The Throat Area. Every human being dual-natured, The Left Cervical, oka Guilt or Electricity/Lightning, is The Nervous System HQ which promotes/alludes-to via Low Blood Pressure. Like it, believe it, realise it, or not, Guilt is responsible for afflictions of The Nervous System, which because it is behavioural in origin, is not material/of-materialism.On the other hand/side, The Right Cervical "presides" over High Blood Pressure, oka Anger, and such expressions, whilst not suffering from nervous dispositions, are the cause of nervousness in others. Magic or what but in any case, for that "sin", HBP is the message.There is a spiritual realm which not only "shadows" the material dimension, expressed via The Body, The Spiritual actually sustains and maintains The Body, all being the lifelong tenant [and not the owner] of their body which is why all treat their body as rented accomodation. This might sound fine and dandy should it not be mumbo-jumbo, but only should one be able to realise/be-a-part-thereof one's spirituality and not be subjected to/by The Spiritual which has only one reality but 2 expressions, namely The Evolutionary, oka The [Truly] Living or Light, and The Devolutionary, oka The Myth or The Stone Dead/Darkness. Darkness is a myth because this state happens only when Light is absent. As all know, when one is in, say, a totally darkened room, the imagination, oka Thoughts of The Past and/or The Future, will run riot, there being zero thought within The Present, "thought" within The Present being the realisation variously known as The Eureka Moment, Inspiration, Intelligence [Thoughts of The Past-Future lack intelligence, being either of conditioning, physical-prowess or intellect], Dreaming [the real one which most cannot "access" bcause when most dream, they are pushed/driven into their Past/Left or Future/Right], and so forth, the realm of Reality/Enlightened Thought being one of The True Moment, Time & Space merely being the allusions to there being such a thing as Infinity.The state/health of The Body is [finally] expressed as the state of The Immune System, manned and maintained by The Antibodies, oka The Angels Within. The state of the materialism of The Body is moderated by The Spiritual via The Body being "tethered" to its lifeline, The Refraction of Divinity [patiently awaiting, usually through many lifetimes, for its Moment of Reflection], which is called as The Tree of Life in The Bible or The Virat in Sanskrit. As such, all psychosomatic or "idiopathic" afflictions are merely the allusion to The Body being harmed/made sub-supra normal. The Tag-Alongs of Quackery & Handler know this but being denied their reality/true-source, not only do they hocus-pocus and airy-fairy but they also demand tributes of Fame, Fortune & Immortality, the joke being that they are also institutionalising their false/relative solutions via the excuse of controlling their equally expensive and mumbo-jumbo Alternatives. For example, "Acupuncture" should only be performed by those whose Spirituality is switched [back] on, Acupuncture not being some mechanised process for the greedy-fearful for augmenting their Fame, Fortune & Immortality. In reality, such mechanised practice of Acupuncture is harmful of which the harm will only be realised in the future. In any case, The Body being akin to a battery, re-charging The Body is the aim/reality and not merely to re-balance the energy, something which [real] Sleep does any way.Should "The Armageddon" be sidelined for The Apocalypse [of The Bookie, His Tentacles and Their Tag-Alongs], an era will arrive when those who have their Spirituality switched-back on will express/reflect the divinity within them if only because they are able then to communicate with Divinity bi-directionally. This is how Night will revert to Day and re-institute Reality from [the] Relativity [between The Past/Femininity and The Future/Masculinity]. Have no Anger, and Guilt will automatically disappear too and your BP will revert to normality. Within 2 weeks at the most. But how? Certainly not by being consumed by The Mesmeric Tentacle of The Bookie, Religion & Religiosity. Firstly by recognising that should one's cup being always brimmed to overflowing that one must ensure that said cup be filled with Benevolence and not Malevolence. To realise that one is the puppet desiring to be human. To relinquish The [constant and willy-nilly] Desire for Purity by being Pure within [the] Desire [first and last], there being no such thing as TDfP when there is no PwtD. Especially desiring Others' Purity like gadgetry, finger-pointing at others' "evil" [but never/seldom at the "evil" within one's duality] and other belief-systems. Afterall, should the above be mumbo-jumbo, that is fine because then, there is merely one cannon on the loose but what if the bulk of the comment is true? What then? As The Ancient translated to The Modern by Gandhi advises, We must be the change we seek. BP will revert to normality when "There is no Other", afflictions being the saving grace not not some punishment of sorts. Afterall, without being able to sense/see/instrument, there is no reality. The problem then is to add relativity/falsehood onto what is being sensed/imagined, a speciality of the dual-natured human, if only because the dual-natured human's senses are malleable and seldom, if at all, absolute, The Present being the sensibility which is absolute whereas The Past and The Future are the sensibilities that are relative [to one another]. You would when you are in a totally darkened room.The Science & Technology of modern medicine is excellent at what it is able to absolutely see but is absolutely useless for what it cannot. Then, should one be conscionable, Fame, Fortune & Immortality should be the last port of call as opposed to being the first [and last]. Hands up those who would like to disagree because "The UN", "EU" and other United Control Freaks kum Abandoned Nutters said so. Attend one of their "sessions" and you'll be amazed how lunacy could so easily be instituted as sanity - and accepted by "most" and the be-all, end-all. This is so, perhaps, when most are actually the insane posing as the sane.
