Got A Tip?


The Language of the Heart


You're probably being pelted with a whole new vocabulary related to your condition. Don't let it intimidate you. The language of hypertension is pretty straightforward when you're clear on a few definitions.

Hypertension—Just a fancy word for high blood pressure.

Essential hypertension
—Also known as "primary high blood pressure, " this is the most common form of hypertension and it exhibits no direct causes. This form is treatable but not curable.

Secondary hypertension
—This is usually linked to another factor such as medications, pregnancy, kidney disease or adrenal disease (among other conditions). This form can usually be reversed when the primary medical issue is addressed.

Sphygmomanometer—A fancy word for a blood pressure monitor.

Your Numbers—This refers to your average blood pressure, which is written as a fraction. 120/60 is spoken as "one-twenty over sixty."

Systolic pressure—The top number of your blood pressure numbers, refers to the amount of pressure in the arteries during a heart beat.

Diastolic pressure—The bottom number in your blood pressure numbers, refers to the amount of pressure that remains in the arteries between heart beats.

My name is Collien Wilson from South Africa i am here to thank Prophet Ayelala the powerful spell caster that rescue me from HIV AIDS. I was diagnosed of this disease in the year 2012, and because of this, i was very unhappy with my life, and i went into research on how i can get cured, i contacted a lot of spell casters and none of them could help me rather they scammed me and took away my money without helping me. All this period of my life, i was sad and unhappy so one day as i was in the INTERNET i decided to sign in a friend guest book, only for me to see a testimony of a lady on how she was helped by Prophet Ayelala so i was confused to contact him at the moment because i didn't want to be scammed again but after one week, i decided to contact him, so when i contacted him, he assured me that he will help me and i told him that many spell casters has also told me this but they all scammed me, he told me not to worry that he is going to help me, So i believed in him because all i wanted was to be cured, so he prepared a healing spell for me and told me to wait for just 24 hours, after 24 hours, i went to the hospital for test and to my happiness the test stated that i was cured from the disease.. This gladdens my heart and everybody in the hospital was surprised even the Medical Doctor, So viewers Prophet Ayelala is a God Gifted man and can help you to cure all types of sickness like HIV AIDS, CANCER, PILE, Kidney problem, Syphilis and lot's more.
