"Physicians think they are doing something for you by labeling -what you have as a disease." Immanuel Kant

High blood pressure (essential hypertension) is the result of an adaptive process to a gross body water deficiency.
The vessels of the body have been designed to cope with the fluctuation of their blood volume and tissue requirements by opening and closing different vessels. When the total fluid volume in the body is decreased, the main vessels also have to decrease their aperture (close their lumen); otherwise there would not be enough fluid to fill all the space allocated to blood volume in the design of that particular body. Failing a capacity adjustment to the "water volume" by the blood vessels, gases would separate from the blood and fill the space/causing "gas locks."
This property of lumen regulation for fluid circulation is a most advanced design within the principle of hydraulics and after which the blood circulation of the body is modeled.

Shunting of blood circulations a normal routine. When we eat, most of the circulation is directed into the intestinal tract by closing some capillary circulation elsewhere. When we eat, more capillaries are opened in the gastrointestinal tract and fewer are open in the major muscle systems. Only areas where activity places a more urgent demand on the circulatory systems will be kept fully open for the passage of blood. In other words, it is the blood-holding capacity of the capillary bed that determines the direction and rate of flow to any site at a given time.
This process is naturally designed to cope with any priority work without the burden of maintaining an excess fluid volume in the body. When the act of digestion has taken place and less blood is needed in the gastrointestinal region, circulation to other areas will open more easily. In a most indirect way, this is why we feel less active immediately after a meal and ready for action after some time has passed. In short, there is a mechanism for establishment of priority for circulating blood to any given area—some capillaries open and some others close. The order is predetermined according to a scale of importance of function. The brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, and glands take priority over muscles, bones, and skin in blood distribution—unless a different priority is programmed into the system. This will happen if a continued demand on any part of the body will influence the extent of blood circulation to the area, such as muscle development through regular exercise. WALKING IS BEST exercise.
