Qi Gong for Hypertension

Hypertension (high blood pressure) is one of the most common serious health problems in the United States. The American Heart Association estimates that about 73 million Americans have high blood pressure. In 2004 (the last year for which data is available), hypertension was responsible for 54,707 deaths. Qi Gong may be an effective method for treating hypertension as an alternative to prescription drugs and other allopathic medicine.
