Headaches, itchy eyes, congestion, facial pain, and a host of other annoying, uncomfortable symptoms are making your life miserable. It's that time of year and trying to do anything while you are suffering feels almost impossible.

57,356 victims died in 2005 according to The American Heart Association. It is now estimated that 70 million people in the U.S. now have hypertension or high blood pressure. That is about one-fourth of the population. Minorities, such as Puerto Ricans, Cuban Americans, Mexican Americans, and African Americans are said to be at greater risk than others. Men seem to have high blood pressure at younger ages than women, but after age 65, more women have the disease. Sobering information, isn't it?
