Hypertension or high blood pressure is the most prevalent medical condition among a large number of people. A disease which was known about 2600 years ago, it has been a known major health hazard since the early Egyptian civilization. Blood pressure varies throughout one's life on a minute-to-minute basis - it fluctuates and is likely to be higher in response to stress, pain, hormone levels, meals and exercise. This interrupts the circulatory system and makes the heart work harder than usual; the heart walls thicken affecting muscle relaxation.
