Blood pressure increased by stress and age

Q: My blood pressure has always been around 120/70. I am 70 years old and in great health, don’t take any medication and exercise moderately. Last year we lost our child and grandson in an automobile accident. My BP is now running around 140-150/80. Will this return to normal as time passes or is this rise a permanent one that needs attention and medication?

A: It is every parent’s worse nightmare to outlive their children. Please accept my condolences. Your blood pressure is in the range where treatment is recommended. Systolic pressure goes up as a natural part of aging so it is unlikely this will go away. I suggest you consult with your doctor about the best treatment for you. RESPeRATE is a drug-free option to consider.
