We hear frequently from people who are desperately trying to get their high blood pressure down and find that despite their healthy-eating, exercise-filled, non-toxic lives that their hypertension is just too stubborn.
Not all hypertension is created equal. Depending upon the kind of stress that is causing this high blood pressure, it can be seemingly impossible to treat. This kind of high blood pressure is called resistant hypertension.
Researchers in Italy at the University of Pisa looked at the effects of lack of sleep, or chronic insomnia in a study recently published. What they found was that for people with the poorest sleep quality, their high blood pressure was the most resistant to almost every kind of therapy, including drugs and lifestyle changes.
Poor sleep quality adds an enormous amount of stress on the body in almost every system, as it is the critical time when the body’s restorative powers are the most active. If the body isn’t allowed to repair and heal itself over time, this stress causes chronically high blood pressure that then perpetuates the cycle.
Which came first, though…the chicken or the egg? Either way, fixing the issue with sleep will make solving the blood pressure problem much easier to resolve.
