Blood pressure and excess weight

Researchers find that blood pressure is often related to weight: two-thirds of patients with high blood pressure were overweight.

According to Chinese medicine, high blood pressure can be of two types. One type is caused by what is called “Excessive Water” in the Law of Five Elements.

Chinese medicine also considers excess weight to be a case of Excessive Water. This is why high blood pressure and excess weight often go hand in hand.
