LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE Naturally - 5 Ways

If you are one of the millions of people who are suffering from high blood pressure you may be shocked at the thought of taking medication for the rest of your life to keep it within normal limits.

At one time the general consensus was to immediately prescribe medication for anyone no matter what their age if they had high blood pressure as it was thought this would prevent a rise the already high rates of stroke and cardiovascular disease in western society.

Now it is realized that prescribing medication for millions of people who could quite possibly treat their high blood pressure without medication is very much a better and much more sensible option.

Now there is a move amongst most health care professionals to try if possible to lower blood pressure naturally before prescribing pills and potions. Very often the shock of finding you have high blood pressure is the wakeup call many people need to help themselves lower it via more natural means.

* Lifestyle changes are a major factor you probably need to look at if you want to reduce your blood pressure via more natural means than taking medication. If you're living a stressful caffeine filled life with too little sleep and too much fast food then it's obvious something is going to have to give and usually it's your health. Slow down, cut the caffeine out and start thinking about yourself for a change.

* A proper diet filled with nutrition rather than empty carbs is something you really need to consider before it's too late and you don't have any option but to take that medication. Cut down on the fast food and start eating fresh fruit and vegetables. A high potassium low sodium diet is best so think about foods such as tomatoes, bananas, orange juice, honey dew melon etc.

A high sodium diet can cause the body to retain fluid which makes your heart work harder to push it round your body so make sure you cut your sodium intake right down.

* Stop smoking, yes it's difficult especially if you've been smoking for a number of years, but it's either give up cigarettes or watch your health decline even further. Your health care provider will be only too happy to give you advice on how to stop and there are plenty of aids and devices such as nicotine patches on the market to help you get through the tough stages. 

* Get more exercise, most of us don't take nearly enough exercise and it shows in our declining health. Get yourself a dog so it gives you an excuse to go for a walk, join the gym, start swimming, you'll soon feel the benefits.

* Get plenty of fresh air, and I'm not particularly talking about exercise here. So many people remain cooped up inside their homes sat at computers or games consoles instead of getting out into the yard or garden and getting some fresh air. And talking about gardens, gardening can be a huge stress buster if you can get interested which all contributes to lowering your blood pressure.

Foods that help lower blood pressure naturally

* Artichokes contain natural diuretics which assist in flushing excess sodium from your body

* Food containing essential unsaturated fatty acids such as Omega 3. This helps boost your immune system and protect your body against certain diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. Oily fish is a good source of omega 3.

* Nibbling on sunflower seeds is a more healthy option than nibbling on chocolate or donuts as they are rich in minerals such as potassium and magnesium. For More Information Click this: The Blood Pressure Solution
