Breakout Session A

Part 2

The Far-Reaching Grasp of High Blood Pressure



1. Articulate at least four fundamental aspects of hypertension epidemiology in the United States.

2. Provide an explanation for the relatively poor compliance with blood pressure management approaches.

3. Describe a ten-step approach to controlling blood pressure utilizing non-pharmacological strategies.

4. List three key dietary strategies that can help individuals control blood pressure.

5. Enumerate three common classes of beverages that tend to foster high blood pressure-- along with the mechanisms responsible for their blood-pressure-raising effects.

Approximately 90% of Americans are destined to have hypertension, “the leading risk factor globally for mortality” according to the WHO. Nonetheless, conflicting guidelines and issues with medication side effects and non-compliance have left many clinicians searching for better strategies. In this presentation we’ll cover data supporting optimal guidelines and lifestyle and strategies for non-pharmacologic blood pressure optimization, suitable for clinical practices and church-based health ministry.
