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
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
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

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
* 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
Foods that help lower blood pressure

* Food containing essential unsaturated fatty acids such as Omega 3. This helps
