HOME REMEDIES FOR HYPERTENSION
Hypertension can be effectively treated with lifestyle modifications, medications, and natural remedies. Most people with hypertension experience improvement with prescription treatment such as diuretics, or other options, and some may require more than one prescription medication to reach optimal blood pressure.
Furthermore, If your hypertension has a medical cause, you may also need treatment for medical issues that are contributing to your high blood pressure.
There are some natural remedies that may lower blood pressure, particularly if you have pre-hypertension.
Garlic is a very good remedy to reduce hypertension. Studies show that garlic extract can lower blood pressure, although the optimal dose, frequency, and form are not well established. Garlic may produce this effect by acting directly on the kidneys to eliminate excess salt. We consider a safe spice to consume, although it can cause some stomach upset.
Magnesium, which is present in nuts, seeds, avocado, and green leafy vegetables, has also been proposed as a natural way to reduce blood pressure. Supplements are also available in pill form. Studies show that higher levels of magnesium are associate with lower blood pressure, but it is still not completely clear whether there is a cause-and-effect relationship.
Eating fish regularly associates with lower high blood pressure. The use of fish oil pills has also been studied, and it is not clear whether consuming pills has the same effect as consuming fish.
Stress control and relaxation:
Stress and anxiety raise blood pressure temporarily. We believe that methods of stress control are lowering hypertension in the short-term, and studies suggest that this effect may also work to reduce hypertension in the long-term as well.
Smoking is one of the leading factors that causes and worsens hypertension. If you smoke and have hypertension, you may experience a substantial improvement in your blood pressure if you quit.
If you are overweight, losing weight can help reduce your hypertension. With some persistence, most people can do so using a combination of diet and exercise.
It’s not just the number on your scale that matters. Watching your waistline is also critical for controlling blood pressure.
The extra fat around your waist, called visceral fat, is troublesome. It tends to surround various organs in the abdomen. This can lead to serious health problems, including hypertension.
Drinking a glass of red wine with your dinner is perfectly fine. It might even offer heart health benefits when done in moderation. But drinking excessive amounts of alcohol can lead to lots of health issues, including hypertension.
Excessive drinking can also reduce the effectiveness of certain blood pressure medications. Furthermore, men should limit their consumption to two alcoholic drinks per day. Women should limit their intake to one alcoholic drink per day.
While some of the numerous herbal remedies out there may reduce blood pressure, some can raise it. If you are using herbal remedies, be sure to familiarize yourself with side effects and medication interactions and discuss them with your doctor.
