What would you like to do?
Generally, excessive saliva is found among people who are suffering with high blood pressure. To control salivation and blood pressure, please remember some important things which are mentioned below,
- Visit your primary care physician.

Your heart is an organ that is mostly muscle tissue. It is a pump. In very simple terms its job is to receive incoming blood from the body that is low in oxygen and pump it to… the lungs. As it passes through the lungs the blood gets rid of carbon dioxide and picks up oxygen. Then the blood goes back to the heart and the heart pumps the oxygen rich blood out to the entire body. Blood flows through arteries going out from the heart to various parts of the body, and through veins on the way back to the heart. The heart pumps blood by the rhythmic contraction of the four chambers in the heart. It is the strong contractions of the lower two chambers (called ventricles) that pumps the blood out of and away from the heart to the various parts of the body. There is a great deal of pressure created by the contraction of the ventricles. and it is this pressure that pushes the blood through the miles of arteries within the body. It is the pressure, the force of the blood pushing against the inside walls of your arteries, that is being discussed when we talk about blood "pressure."What do the numbers mean? You've probably heard the sound of a heart beating at some time. It sounds sort of like: lub-DUB, lub-DUB, lub-DUB, lub-DUB. The "lub" is the sound of the auricles beating and pumping the blood into the bigger, more powerful chambers, the ventricles. The "DUB" is the sound of the ventricles beating, and pumping the blood away from the heart (see the above illustration). When the powerful ventricles contract (the "DUB"), that is the moment of greatest pressure called the "systolic pressure." Between one "lub-DUB" and the next "lub-DUB" is a moment when the heart is not beating at all, that is the moment of lowest pressure called the "diastolic pressure." When doctors or nurses measure your blood pressure, they usually give it to you as two numbers, the "systolic" over the "diastolic" or the high over the low measurements. These numbers fall into certain ranges: What controls blood pressure? Blood pressure is controlled by tiny muscles that line the inside of your blood vessels. These muscles allow your arteries to operate like soft rubber tubes, that expand with each beat of your heart. When these muscles throughout the vascular system [the arteries and veins that carry blood] expand, blood pressure drops. When these muscles throughout the vascular system tense up, blood pressure rises. When these muscles get tense, the arteries become narrower, more rigid, less flexible, and the heart has to beat harder to keep the blood flowing through these narrower tubes. If the muscles that line your arteries are tense all the time, the blood pressure will remain high. This is called hypertension! Continuous high blood pressure puts extra strain, wear and tear on your heart and arteries, that can eventually lead to heart attacks and strokes.What Causes High Blood Pressure? What is it that makes the muscles that line your blood vessels tense all the time? What are the things that can actually drive your blood pressure up? * Poor diet * Nutritional deficiencies * Being overweight * Alcohol and caffeine in excess * Emotional and physical stress * Being diabetic Each of the above can cause the loss of vital minerals from the body. These minerals are essential to the natural and effective control of blood pressure. "Magnesium is essential for cells to maintain proper balances of other minerals such as potassium, sodium, and calcium." "When cells are deficient in magnesium, this balance is disrupted, and cells lose potassium and are flooded with calcium and sodium." "In the smooth muscle cells of the blood vessels, this sets the stage for constriction and elevation of blood pressure." excerpted from The Magnesium Solution by Jay S. Cohen, M.D. Not having enough magnesium is one of the main causes of high blood pressure. "As many as half of us in the United States are magnesium deficient." "Our soils are becoming depleted of magnesium, which eliminates the natural opportunity to receive magnesium from fruits, vegetables, and water." excerpted from The Sinatra Solution by Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D.
The flow (volume) of blood [i.e. the output of the heart] times the resistance of the arterial system ... most of which is found at the arteriole level. Arterioles… are the muscular vessels located between arteries and capillaries; how tight they are is controlled by both nerves and hormones.
Our body will try to control blood pressure by slowing or speeding up heart rate.

don't get angry
no the cerebrum controls blood pressure.!.!
Yes, it can be controlled with medication. Some people can also control it with weight loss and moderately increased exercise, although some medication may still be needed. …High blood pressure can result in heart and kidney disease as well as stokes. You can't feel high blood pressure and many people do not know they have it until damage is done. In the US you can check your blood pressure routinely (for free) at an automated meter at the drugstore to be sure it is kept well under control. Medication can have reduced affect after long term use, so be sure to check it often and inform your health care professional if you are on medication but your blood pressure is not well controlled.
Heart & brain functions effects blood pressure.
There is a guy by the name of Christian Goodman on the internet that sells relaxation exercises for lowering blood pressure.which I purchased, anyhow he said that stress… is monitored by the hypothalmus. The hypothalmus controls both your emotions as well as your automatic body functions such as the heart. So you see, hypertension and stress are closely related- the hypothalmus monitors both.. " when one goes up, the other follows "
The heart. All blood pressure is controlled by the heart.
diet ,more fruit and vegetable sport minimum 30 minutes/day
The best way to control blood pressure is through a good low salt diet that is high in fruits and vegetables combined with weight loss and exercise. For many people this wil…l not be enough and medication will be required. The blood pressure targets can vary depending on situation but for most people we would like it to be below 120/80 and would give medications if it is above 140/90 despite the lifestyle modifications above.
You usually need to have a doctor monitor your vitals while trying different pills to try to lower your numbers. Also, you probably need a kidney scan every few months to comp…are progress. Hopefully, you'll get a competent doctor that will find your magic dosage. Some pills are only effective when taken in conjunction with other pills. also, you can't stop taking the pills while doing this. Exercise and lower stress is also recommended, along with diet of low salt foods and vitamins including B12 and potassium.
Eating healthy, exercising, and relaxing is a good way to keep your blood pressure down.
The mineral elements sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium play a central role in the normal regulation of blood pressure. In particular, these mineral elements have import…ant interrelationships in the control of arterial resistance. These elements, especially sodium and potassium, also regulate the fluid balance of the body and, hence, influence the cardiac output. Evidence shows that the present levels of intake of mineral elements are not optimum for maintaining normal blood pressure but predispose to the development of arterial hypertension. Research results suggest that without sodium chloride (common salt) and other sodium compounds being added to the diet arterial hypertension would be virtually non existent. Moreover, blood pressure would not rise with age. In communities with a high consumption of added sodium, a high intake of potassium and, possibly, magnesium seem to protect against the development of arterial hypertension and the rise of blood pressure with age. A marked reduction of sodium intake is effective in treating even severe hypertension. A moderate restriction of sodium intake or an increase in potassium intake exert remarkable antihypertensive effects, at least in some hypertensive patients. Magnesium and possibly also calcium supplements may be effective in reducing blood pressure in some hypertensives. In hypertensive patients treated with drugs sodium restriction and potassium and magnesium supplementation enhance the therapeutic effect, reduce the number and dosage, and lessen the adverse effects of prescribed antihypertensive drugs. Hence, a fall in sodium consumption and increases in potassium and magnesium consumption are useful in preventing and treating arterial hypertension.
