Sudden Anger Outbursts Can Spike BP: Experts at Paras Health Panchkula Raises Awareness on World Hypertension Day
In recognition of World Hypertension Day, experts at Paras Health Panchkula raises awareness about the dangers of sudden anger outbursts and their potential to significantly increase blood pressure.
“Uncontrolled anger can have a very real and negative impact on your cardiovascular system,” asserted Dr. H. K. Bali, Chairman, Cardiac Sciences, Paras Health Panchkula. “During anger, the body undergoes a physiological stress response. This hormonal cascade causes blood vessels to constrict, heart rate to escalate, and blood pressure to surge rapidly. These spikes in blood pressure put a tremendous strain on the heart. Over time, repeated episodes of uncontrolled anger can damage the delicate lining of blood vessels, leading to chronic hypertension, a major risk factor for a multitude of life-threatening conditions.”
“Many people don’t realize how intensely anger can affect their physical health,” said Dr. Vinay Verma, Director, Internal Medicine, Paras Health Panchkula. “When we get angry, our bodies go into fight-or-flight mode, releasing a flood of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones act like a double whammy on our blood pressure. While occasional spikes are normal, frequent anger outbursts can lead to chronically high blood pressure, a silent killer that significantly increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and even kidney failure. It’s crucial to manage your anger for the sake of your overall health by identifying the triggers, embracing relaxing techniques like deep breathing, meditation, and yoga which are proven to lower stress hormones. “
By managing anger and adopting healthy lifestyle practices, you can significantly reduce your risk of developing hypertension and its associated complications. If you find it challenging to manage anger on your own, consider seeking anger management therapy. A therapist can equip you with coping mechanisms and communication skills to address anger in a healthy way.
