Don't Let High Blood Pressure Get You Down!
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), about 70 million American adults suffer from high blood pressure. That is one in every three adults. We’ll say it again: one third of America’s adult population suffers from high blood pressure. The statistics are endless and the data is manifold about the effects of high blood pressure and the harm it does to your body. But, what causes high blood pressure and are there more effective ways to address it than just popping a pill? Your heart is the epicenter of blood flow throughout your body. It pumps blood from your head to your feet all day seemingly without any effort. But your heart is not the only mechanism in your body responsible for blood flow- this is where your muscles come in.
In fact, you would need twenty five hearts to pump all the blood through the vast network of arteries and capillaries in your body. To assist your heart, permanent micro-vibrations throughout your muscles activate small backflow valve-like structures in the over sixty-two miles of capillaries in your body. Movement of your muscles ensures that fresh, oxygenated blood is transported to your organs, your extremities, and your brain. Over time, sedentary lifestyles can cause these micro-vibrations to lessen. This is why we often see high blood pressure in paralyzed or bedridden people. Their muscles simply don’t move enough to help their blood stay healthy and oxygenated. This causes the heart to have to work harder. The same is true for those with sedentary lifestyles, and those who do not stay active throughout the day. Constant sitting and lack of movement discourages micro-vibrations in your muscles and causes your heart to have to pick up the slack. This can lead to high blood pressure and the sometimes fatal side effects such as heart attack and stroke. While regular exercise and diet can help encourage proper blood flow and micro-vibrations in your muscles, the Rikian Exerciser™ will put your muscles into action. The Rikian Exerciser moves your muscles helping them pump your blood, and improves the supply of nutrients and oxygen that reach your cells. This increased blood flow is beneficial to every organ that is directly connected to the circulatory system. Over time, with regular sessions, the Rikian Exerciser™ can increase the blood flow of the overall capillary network inside your body. The Rikian effect, as we call it, will help distribute blood flow more evenly throughout the body, which can help to lower your blood pressure and cause less stress to your heart. Routine use of the Rikian Exerciser™ is a safe and effective way to improve blood flow and help your muscles function, similar to the way a very intense workout would. Within a few ten-minute sessions, you will notice an overall improvement in flexibility; you’ll be more energetic and just feel better. With continued sessions, like with regular exercise, you may find that you have improved circulation and blood flow, and increased quality of life!
