Functional Medicine’s Approach to High Blood Pressure

Nearly half of adults in the United States (47%, or 116 million) have hypertension. Hypertension is defined as a systolic blood pressure greater than 130 mmHg or a diastolic blood pressure greater than 80 mmHg. Patients with hypertension are at increased risk for heart disease and stroke.
Stress is highly overlooked when it comes to blood pressure. Stress involves more than just the emotional demands that many of us feel. It includes all the demands placed on the body by eating poorly, not sleeping enough, exercising TOO much and too little. Many people do not understand that being deficient in even one major nutrient is enough to throw off the vascular system and create high blood pressure readings.
At Spire Health Pathways, we implement a functional medicine approach to ensure effective treatment of high blood pressure. We evaluate adrenal function and sleep. We use tools such as meditation and supplements that reduce adrenaline and cortisol to lower blood pressure.
We may also evaluate your genetics around salt and caffeine sensitivity, nutrient absorption, and toxin removal to further personalize your treatment.
Is Functional Medicine Right for You?
Patients who want a more comprehensive and in-depth approach to their high blood pressure treatment are excellent candidates for functional medicine.
Our approach is especially important for patients who are also suffering from other types of health conditions. Providers at Spire Health Pathways determine the root causes of high blood pressure, since it can often be impacted by other underlying health factors.
During your consultation, one of our providers will perform a physical examination. They will evaluate your complete medical history, including all current medications, pre-existing health conditions, and past treatments. They will also ask you questions about various lifestyle factors.
This will allow for a comprehensive evaluation of your state of wellbeing, helping your provider determine how to best treat your high blood pressure. They will then recommend the appropriate health solutions.
