Hello.Welcome.Isolated systolic hypertension occurs frequently in the elderly(beginning after the fifth decade and increasing with age).This results from stiffening of large arteries.It should be treated with proper medications as it doubles the risk of MI and triples the risk of CVA.Treatment reduces this excess risk.Good luck.

Hi There Here are some ideas on how to heal the heart. Causes of Heart Disease There are numerous causes of heart disease. These include poor diet, nutritional deficiencies, lack of exercise, smoking, genetic predisposition, chronic infection, chronic inflammation, anxiety, depression, diabetes, high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, obesity, stress, gum (periodontal) disease, mercury and other environmental toxins, poverty, and oxidized cholesterol. But the most important and usually undiagnosed cause of most types of heart disease is vulnerable plaque. Quick Action Plan for Preventing and Treating Heart Disease 1. Since up to 50 percent of heart disease cases can strike without any warning symptoms, it’s important to regularly be screened for signs of heart disease. In addition to conventional heart disease signals, such as high blood pressure and cholesterol and triglyceride levels, have your health care provider also screen you for markers such as C-reactive protein, homocysteine, fibrinogen, lipoprotein(a), glucose, insulin, and iron. 2. Also be sure to be screened for vulnerable plaque, which is the primary cause of 85 percent of all cases of heart disease. Effective screening tools for vulnerable plaque include ultra-high-speed magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and darkfield microscropy. 3. You should also be screened for infectious agents such as Chlamydia, Helicobacter pylori, cytomegalovirus (CMV), and the herpes family of retroviruses 4. Oxidized cholesterol, rather than elevated cholesterol levels by themselves, is another primary factor in most cases of heart disease, and therefore should also be screened for. 5. A healthy diet is essential for a healthy heart. Emphasize a diet rich in organic whole foods, especially plenty of fresh, raw fruits and vegetables, oats, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and organic, free-range poultry and wild-caught, cold water fish, such as halibut, mackerel, orange roughy, and salmon (avoid farm raised salmon). Beans and legumes are also advisable due to their high fiber content. Throughout the day, drink plenty of pure, filtered water, and avoid drinking—as well as bathing, and showering in—unfiltered tap water, because tap water contains heavy metals and pesticide residues that can contribute to and worsen heart disease. Also be sure to regularly use healthy oils such as extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, flaxseed oil, and fish oils for the essential fatty acids they contain. 6. Useful nutritional supplements for protecting your heart include beta carotene; vitamins B3 (niacin), B6, B12, C, and E; folic acid; the minerals calcium, chromium, magnesium, potassium, and selenium; the amino acids L-arginine, L-lysine, L-proline, and L-carnitine; coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10); and proanthrocyanidin (PCA). 7. Useful herbs include foxglove, garlic, ginkgo biloba, ginger, hawthorn berry, linden flower, and motherwort. 8. Be sure to engage in a regular exercise program that combines aerobic exercise and strength training. For best result, devote 30 minutes three times per week to aerobic exercise, and 45 minutes twice a week for strength training. 9. Learn how to properly manage stress. Useful stress reduction techniques include biofeedback training, meditation, and yoga. 10. If you smoke, stop immediately. Also avoid all exposure to secondhand cigarette smoke, and minimize your exposure to environmental pollutants. Best of health to you Cheers
