A sphygmomanometer or blood pressure meter is a device used to measure blood pressure, composed of an inflatable cuff to restrict blood flow, and a mercury or mechanical manometer to measure the pressure. It is always used in conjunction with a means to determine at what pressure blood flow is just starting, and at what pressure it is unimpeded. Manual sphygmomanometers are used in conjunction with a stethoscope.
The word comes from the Greek sphygmós (pulse), plus the scientific term manometer (pressure meter). The device was invented by Samuel Siegfried Karl Ritter von Basch in 1881. Scipione Riva-Rocci introduced a more easily used version in 1896. In 1901, Harvey Cushing modernized the device and popularized it within the medical community.
A sphygmomanometer consists of an inflatable cuff, a measuring unit (the mercury manometer, or aneroid gauge), and inflation bulb and valve, for manual instruments.
Modern medical devices are also able to monitor your blood pressure, or they can also actually tell you your blood pressure (not just display it).

That’s good advice from Rednail.
Keep it less than 48 hours and don’t have that supreme pizza with extra anchovies and jalapenos when you resumed eating. Make is something light.
Question: How much does fasting benefit you? | 2017-03-17
Fasting is a spiritual discipline.
It doesn’t need to be utilized in the setting of yoga to be beneficial.
Spend part of the time that you are fasting communing with GOD, or whatever you recognize as your own god.
And drink lots of water while you are fasting. Take a multivit.
Life is no perfection, so just let it go.
