Hi, I’m Dr. Terranella, a naturopathic physician,
and today we’re going to be talking about what blood pressure is, and how it relates
to your life and your health. Just a little disclaimer before we get started. This video
is not intended to treat or diagnose any condition. If you do have a health concern, make sure
you consult with your physician. This isn’t to replace an actual visit to your physician.
We’re going to be talking about what blood pressure is, and how it relates to your health,
and to do that we have several props here. We have the heart model, and we have two balloon
-like things, and a band. Those will come into the video a little bit later, along with
some other props that we’ll introduce as we go. Next, we want to talk about what blood
pressure actually is.
