3 Feng Shui Tips To Improve Your Blood Pressure
May is High Blood Pressure Awareness Month and in addition to a healthy diet, exercising regularly, reducing sodium and alcohol intake, Feng Shui could help you toward better health.
What is High Blood Pressure?
High Blood Pressure or HBP is when your blood pressure, the force of the blood flowing through your blood vessels and arteries, is consistently too high. According to American Heart Association, “about 85 million Americans – one out of every three adults over age 20 – have high blood pressure. Nearly 20% don’t even know they have it” because often there is no symptom.
The best way to know if you have high blood pressure is to have it checked! “Usually hypertension is defined as blood pressure above 140/90, and is considered severe above 180/120.”
High Blood Pressure and Feng Shui
Classical Feng Shui takes in consideration and analyzes the exterior as well as the interior of your home since both can strongly impact your wellbeing. Whether or not your blood pressure is elevated, check around if your home and workplace are conducive to keep you healthy.
In The Kitchen
The location of the stove is essential due to its Fire Element. It could impact all occupants of the home, and in some cases mostly the man, with various health problems including High Blood Pressure and heart conditions.
The kitchen, stove and oven(s) should be located based on the Gua number, the facing direction, time period and chart of the house.
As a rule of thumb, avoid:
- Placing a stove next to a sink
- Having a cooking range on the island
- Having the kitchen in the center of the home.
If your stove happens to not be well located but you don’t cook or don’t use it, then, no worry, it won’t affect you.
A kitchen with good Feng Shui is source of wealth, harmony and good health.
In The Bedroom
The Bedroom plays an important role in regard to health, especially since we spend about 1/3 of our life in bed. So let’s maximize all these hours spent sleeping or trying to sleep by simply following these basic rules:
Have a solid headboard to provide energetic support
Increase the Sheng Qi (positive energy flow) in your home to influence your well-being by sleeping with your head preferably to your Tien Yi (+80) or to one of your 3 other positive directions.
Do the same if you sit for a long period of time, for example working, reading, or watching TV.
Find your Gua number and your favorable directions to maximize your health Qi.
Everything has its own electromagnetic field and radiates some safe and/or harmful waves to your body. Long exposure to high levels of EMFs can be detrimental as
it can change your body’s natural frequencies to unhealthy ones causing tissue damage, disease, and high stress leading to HBP.
It is almost impossible to get away from electromagnetic pollution as we live among technology devices, telephone poles, high power lines, electricity, appliances, computers, TVs, cameras, videos, cell and cordless phones, Wi-Fi, cell towers, power lines, and smart meters. They all can affect your central nervous system, create stress to your body and, over time, cause high blood pressure.
Our often overly busy life can increase our blood pressure and so do EMFs. I recommend investing in a high quality EMF protection device to protect the health of your loved ones at home and of those at work.
