Hello. This is Hypertension Prevention Tuesdays! Today, we’ll talk about free blood pressure charts to monitor your blood pressure. Health problems related to blood pressure have become an increasing concern. In the recent past, patients have had to visit the medical centers in order to have their blood pressure levels monitored. However, now it is possible to monitor blood pressure right from the comfort of one’s home using a printable blood pressure chart. The printable blood pressure chart has a monitoring device that enables one to keep records of their blood pressure levels at any one point. The chart may be full size or in form of a handy wallet size, that one can carry around. This chart enables the physicians to monitor the patient’s condition.
Printable Blood Pressure Charts
The printable blood pressure chart has columns that bear details such as the name of medication, the amount of medication taken, the time of checking the blood pressure, the reactions to the medication, etc. There is also software that is available to offer printable blood pressure charts. The software also gives the patients reminders of the times to take note of their blood pressure level. In addition, the physician is able to get printed reports on their patient’s progress. The software may also offer the users simple calculation of the pressure levels.
The printable blood pressure chart is based on the readings of a blood pressure machine. The patient has to ensure that they make the correct readings from the machine in order to give reliable information. Unlike the printable blood pressure chart, the blood pressure machines have been proven more accurate, but are more costly than the charts. The printable blood pressure chart can also offers a list of filtering records as well as notes on the figures entered. In this way, the patient is able to tell when they need to see a physician for medical attention. This is also made possible by the measurement series included in the chart.
Sources Of The Printable Blood Pressure Chart
The patient can download the printable blood pressure chart directly from the internet on the website of the companies that offer them for free. They may also obtain others for which they have to pay a small amount of money. The charts can also be made at home so that all the relevant details are included to give comprehensive information and guidelines. However, the homemade chart is not as efficient as the charts that can be downloaded directly from the internet.

I’m excited to talk about this topic today because not only do I truly believe that you have the power to reverse heart disease and lower high blood pressure to improve your health, but the science also agrees! You can adopt healthy lifestyle practices that improve your health and enrich your life, which can in turn improve the lives of those close to you. You have the power to break the cycle of these chronic diseases so that you can leave a legacy of health to your loved ones.
As you may already know, I use lifestyle medicine as the first line of treatment, before medications, to treat lifestyle-related chronic diseases. Lifestyle-related chronic diseases include diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and some cancers, just to name a few. Lifestyle practices, such as eating a whole-food plant-based diet and regular physical activity, can help you improve blood pressure and reverse heart disease. In certain cases, these approaches may even outperform pharmaceutical therapy. But I always tell my patients that conventional medications may be appropriate at this time to prevent catastrophic illness, but over time, you can work to make the necessary lifestyle changes to possibly reduce and/or eliminate medications. Please remember to always consult your physician for your particular needs and circumstances prior to making any decisions whatsoever.
Tools to Improve Heart Health
Blood Pressure Monitoring
Since weight management is very important in blood pressure control, I recommend that you be mindful of your weight and its fluctuations, and that you monitor your weight AT LEAST on a weekly basis. I recommend a scale that includes a body composition monitor.
Remember, healthy lifestyle behaviors–like eating a whole-foods plant-based diet that is low in sodium, being physically active, and stress management are the best ways to prevent and control high blood pressure. Please talk with your doctor about any complementary health approaches, including supplements, you use.
