Natural Ways To Help Lower Your Blood Pressure

Sep 3, 2008
More and more people are now looking for natural ways to lower their blood pressure ( hypertension ) because of the side effects of long-term drug care. This article is going to show you some natural ways you can lower your hypertension so you have the chance of getting off of the medication you're taking.

High blood pressure is a health problem that carries no physical symptoms that you'll know of. A blood pressure test is needed to determine whether you are a sufferer or not.

As with most health problems the biggest natural weapon you have is a healthy diet. A poor diet is one of the leading contributors to hypertension so it's only natural that a healthy diet can help to reverse the effects of high blood pressure.

When you're doctor discovers that you're suffering from hypertension he/she will probably talk about your diet first to see what foods make up a big part of what you eat.

A healthy diet that is high in fruits and vegetables, and one that is low in saturated fat will help to lower your blood pressure. Overall your whole body, and your health and fitness will benefit from a diet that is filled with nutritious food. You'll live longer as well.

Being overweight is another major cause of high blood pressure. Being overweight puts more pressure on all of your internal organs so they have to work harder. If you're eating a poor diet that is causing your weight to be above average then a healthier diet will definitely help you lose a few pounds. Once you have lost some weight then you're blood pressure could normalise.

Stress and anxiety can also cause hypertension, and/or can have an effect on your already existing poor blood pressure readings. Learning to relax more will help you.

If it's other family members that cause problems then a few hours away from them at the times they're causing the most stress in your life will help you a lot. You could get a hobby that forces you to leave the house every evening. You could also make some new friends which will bring some more happiness into your life.

Sodium is an important part of your diet, but too much of it will raise your blood pressure. Sodium which is mainly found in salt raises the amount of fluid in your body, and this in turn increases your blood volume which raises your blood pressure.

Watching how much salt you ingest will help you cut down on your sodium intake. Sodium/salt is found in many repacked foods so reading the labels will help you get a guide as to how much you consume every day.

These tips to naturally cure your high blood pressure will help you lead a healthier lifestyle. In the end you could eventually come off of your medication providing your doctor allows you to.
