Why do some people weather stressful storms without so much as an increase in their heart rate while others have what seem to be stubbornly persistent high blood pressure reactions?
When the stressful stimuli are the same for both and both live similar lifestyles, the answer may lie deep within the brain.
Researchers in Sweden recently released the results of a study they had done on the brains of mice; specifically as neural activity affects blood pressure and other involuntary function.
They found that a certain kind of nerve bundle in the brain that is located in the hypothalamus, which is affected by thyroid function, can have mutations effect on the cell receptors.
These mutations cause the hypothalamus to have atypical reactions to stimuli that affect involuntary body functions such as the regulation of body temperature hunger/cravings and blood pressure.
The discovery underscores what many dozens of scientists have already discovered, which is that stress in any form will have a great effect on the body’s ability to regulate blood pressure.
Some people are better at resisting the stress reactions, and this discovery shows potentially why others are much more susceptible to negative reactions and hypertension.
