Malignant Hypertension

My doctors have watched my high BP go up and up for the past 8 years and finally I have been sent to a cardiologist for testing. I got the diagnosis of Malignant Hypertension and they started me on yet another heart medicine (that makes two heart meds and two BP meds daily and I'm 57 yrs old.). My BP is still staying around 165/102 most of the time. My 90 yr old neighbor is doing better. It doesn't take much for my BP to spike to well over 200 on the top number. The highest that I recorded was when I went into the hospital feeling horrible and they said it was 225/120. I constantly feel horrible. They have now said that my heart muscle is hardening and not flexible like it needs to be. The more I don't feel good, the more sedentary I become and the more weight I gain. That just starts the cycle again as you can imagine.

I don't know what state you are in but you sound like a strong canidate for CAN (Cardiovascular Autonomic Neurapthy). I work for a company called Ansar and we have a device called the ANX 3.0 and what this does patients in your case we will test your ANS( Autonomic Nervous System) A patient with your condition will show signs of dysfunction. Our machine helps the dr maintain your balance to avoid CAN and if not and you get CAN you will not serve it. We currently have units in dr's offices all over the unit states and 52 in Puerto Rico. Some dr's say oh I have a machine that does that but ours tell you the results in 15 min. and it is non invasive( no Needles ) its just a blood pressure cuff and 3 lead EKG and a few breathing exercises on your end. And you will see your health correcting it self as little as 3-6 months. We recommend you get the test every 6 months. This unit is FDA approved and it is hippa compliant and medicare and all major insurances pay for it to be done. If you are interested look on our website to learn more.
