I go into detail on the implications and interpretations of Blood Pressure readings in all of my videos on blood pressure. First, you must understand that a blood pressure reading is merely a snapshot in time of what your body is doing to regulate itself. So high or low blood pressure readings are not really important when taken in context… meaning that high blood pressure isn’t necessarily bad and low blood pressure or even “normal blood pressure” (120/80) isn’t necessarily good. Even if blood pressure is taken properly such as several readings taken in one day throughout the day won’t be an accurate measurement of blood pressure because so many factors are involved in regulation.
If you’re concerned about your blood pressure and you wish to monitor it on a regular basis, a great alternative to traditional blood pressure measurement is measuring the Pulse Pressure. Pulse pressure is the difference of Systolic and Diastolic, so the pulse pressure of 100/60 would be 40. Blood pressure will raise and lower constantly throughout the day, but pulse pressure should remain the same. A pulse pressure of 40 is considered normal so 120/80 or 200/160 would both be considered normal because they both have the same pulse pressure. If you have an increase or decrease in pulse pressure such as (180/100) this is a sign that the blood is toxic and there could be a neurological problem with the cardiovascular system.
To help the body regulate itself without the use of medications you must first look to the nervous system. Any nerve interference especially in the upper thoracic region which controls heart and lung function will directly affect blood pressure. Through proper chiropractic treatments this area of nerves can be stimulated and normal function can be restored to your system and the body will be able to regulate itself accordingly. This is what I do everyday in my office and as a result we’re able to get all my patients off their blood pressure medications.

Your diet and lifestyle will also dramatically affect blood pressure readings. Here’s a video that explains all the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes to promote healthy blood pressure regulation:
I also suggest juicing vegetables and blending fruits on a daily basis. Juicing and blending are fantastic because the soluble fiber in veggie juice can be absorbed directly into your bloodstream and bind to toxins which may be affecting the health of your body. Juicing/blending also pre-digests the food so the nutrients/minerals are more easily absorbed by your body. There are also enzymes and natural probiotics in the veggie juice/blended fruit that will radically improve your digestive system.
These dietary changes combined with the proper lifestyle changes such as proper deep sleep every night and exercising regularly will greatly improve the quality of your blood as well as pulse pressure.
Always keep in mind, that blood pressure is constantly changing, for example, in the morning it’s perfectly normal to have really high blood pressure readings because your body naturally has higher blood pressure in the morning in order to get the day started. If we all had low blood pressure in the morning, we would never get out of bed. At in the evenings our blood pressure should be lower to allow us to sleep through the night. These natural changes are all regulated by the nervous system which is why it’s so important to stimulate proper function of the nervous system. The best method of doing this is through chiropractic care, however, if you don’t have access to a chiropractor, the next best solution would be regular exercise and spinal exercises.
