TIP: Control HYPERTENSION with Natural Remedies and Good Habits

High blood pressure is often called "The Silent Killer" due to the fact that so many people don’t realize they have high blood pressure before it is too late. In other words "You feel fine until suddenly you don't."

Blood pressure, perhaps more than any other health concern, is all about the numbers. The numbers that can make you dread going to your doctor.

The numbers that can have your spouse "reminding" you at every meal about what is at stake.

Here are some basic facts to consider. • Pre-hypertension is 120–139 over 80–89. • Hypertension is 140 over 90 or higher. • Hypotension is anything under 110 over 70 or lower.

The most common causes are: • Genetic factors • Ethnic background • Low level of physical activity • Excess salt intake • Obesity • Build up of plaque • Excess alcohol • Smoking • Poor nutrition

Persistently high blood pressure can lead to kidney disease, dementia, heart disease, stroke, arterial disease and vision problems.

Conventional medicine uses medications for high blood pressure, on the other hand, alternative medicine uses herbs, vitamins, and other natural substances for the same reason. Natural is always better for the body because of the lack of chemicals or other elements that can cause harm. While medications can be effective for treating high blood pressure, they can have serious side effects or harm other areas of the body like the liver. That’s not ideal because that is like trading one evil for another.

The treatment of high blood pressure should start with eating a heart-healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and try to avoid things that cause you stress. Staying at a healthy body weight can also make a big difference.

In 1998, three scientists stepped to the podium in Stockholm, Sweden, and accepted the Nobel Prize for Medicine. They had discovered a special molecule in the human body called nitric oxide. It was soon called the “miracle molecule” for its amazing effect on blood pressure and circulation.

Nitric oxide helps expand blood vessels so more blood, oxygen, and nutrients can flow to every tiny capillary in the body. Doctors call this “vasodilation” but everybody else call it amazing. But we can’t just go out and consume nitric oxide to get the benefits. Instead, the body produces a “precursor” — an amino acid called L arginine — that kick-starts this process.

L arginine is converted into nitric oxide, which helps dilate the blood vessels. This, in turn, means the heart doesn’t have to pump as hard, which promotes normal blood pressure, circulation, and control blood pressure. There also are other nutrients that support healthy blood pressure and circulation. They include:

  • Alpha Lipoic acid (ALA) - fights free radicals that can damage the walls of the blood vessels

  • Folic acid - promotes a healthy inflammation response and supports arterial health

  • Vitamin B12 - gets more oxygen-rich blood to every cell in the body and boosts nitric oxide and energy

  • Vitamon C - another major antioxidant that helps fight free radicals and prevent damage of blood vessel walls

  • Vitamin D - plays a key role in cardiovascular and immunity health

  • Magnesium - affects the conduction of nerve impulses, muscle contraction, normal heart rhythm, and helps in lowering blood pressure.

Eating a balanced diet that focuses around fresh fruits and veggies, complex carbohydrates like whole grains, lean protein, and low-fat dairy while banishing refined sugar, excess salt, and saturated fat and cholesterol will help keep blood pressure levels safe.

  • Sip Hibiscus tea - it can help lower blood pressure in people with mild hypertension. Three cups of the tea daily lower blood pressure significantly.

  • Avoid salt - remember - this is crucial!!!

  • Say yes to yogurt - The probiotics in yogurt and other fermented foods can help lower blood pressure

  • Think potatoes - Fruits and veggies are loaded with potassium, a crucial mineral the body needs to maintain a healthy blood pressure level. Plenty of our favorite foods are high in potassium: potatoes - both - sweet and regular, tomatoes, bananas, orange juice, beans, avocados, cantaloupe, raisins, and nuts.

  • Indulge in dark chocolate - a square of dark chocolate a day - the kind that's 50-70% cocoa - can help lower blood pressure

  • Switch to decaff - caffeine is known to cause a spike in blood pressure

  • Take Omega 3 supplements

  • Do not forget vitamin K - Calcium is a basis for plaque formation. Vitamin K2 daily will help redirect that calcium to the bone and thereby help with reducing atherosclerotic plaque and reverse osteoporosis.

  • Do yoga - keeping muscles flexible and pliant, e.g. through regular yoga stretches, may also help keep the arteries pliable and thereby lower blood pressure naturally.

  • Shed pounds - Blood pressure raises with weight, which means we can reduce the numbers by simply losing a few excess pounds.

  • De-Stress - Taking a breather from stressful work, family, social obligations, or financial obligations will also help lower blood pressure. And if you can’t eliminate stress completely, learn to cope with de-stressing methods—like exercise, massage, and meditation.
