Home Remedies For Hypertension
More than 20 million Americans have been diagnosed with hypertension (high blood pressure). If you're one of those people, obviously you're not alone
We urge you to take a look at your lifestyle and, once and for all, do something to change whatever is causing the blood pressure problem.
The most important dietary recommendation for lowering blood pressure is to increase the consumption of plant foods in the diet, according to Jade Beutler, RRT, RCP, San Diego-based CEO of Lignan Research LLC and a licensed health care practitioner. A primarily vegetarian diet typically contains less saturated fat and refined carbohydrates, and more potassium, complex carbohydrates, fiber, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C and essential fatty acids.
Double-blind studies have demonstrated that either fish oil supplements or flaxseed oil, both rich in omega- 3 fatty acids, are very effective in lowering blood pressure.
When blood pressure is measured, there are two numbers reported. The first and higher number is the systolic. It measures the pressure inside the arteries when the heart beats (constricts). The diastolic is the lower number and measures the pressure in the arteries when the heart is at rest in between beats.
Hypertension is ranked in stages. . .
If Your Blood Pressure Is High...
If caring for a tank of fish isn't for you, check the Internet or your local video store for tapes of aquariums and fish swimming in their natural habitats.
Don't Spit Out the Seeds
Repeat the procedure before each meal, three times a day. After taking the tea for a few days, have your pressure checked and see if it has improved. Watermelon-seed tea can be bought at health food stores.
NOTE: Watermelon seeds are known to strengthen kidney function. Be prepared to use bathroom facilities often.
The bottom line here is that if you talk slowly, you should need to take bigger and better breaths, giving you more oxygen and preventing your blood pressure from climbing.
If Your Blood Pressure Is Low...
Just as there are people with high blood pressure, there are people (not as many) with low blood pressure. These remedies are said to be effective blood pressure regulators and stabilizers.
Let all the air out of your lungs-exhale, squeezing all the air out-then let the air in through your nostrils, slowly to the count of seven. When no more air will fit in your lungs, hold tight for the count of 14. Next, gently let the air out through your mouth to the count of seven-all the way out. Inhale and exhale this way 10 times.
Even when your blood pressure is normal, continue this breathing exercise for all kinds of physical benefits.
CAUTION: Do not take licorice root if you have high blood pressure or kidney problems. It can cause renal failure.
Nausea And Vomiting
Pruritis And Hives
