Hypo tension cures

Hypo tension or low blood pressure is a dip in your blood pressure, below the normal range. The Normal range may varies from person to person. Normal blood pressure is defined as 120/80 .If a person’s blood pressure is below than the normal, we may say a person is suffering from this hypo tension. It makes your heart weak. You may feel Lethargic, weak, dizzy, fatigued lightheadedness and may also faint sometimes.

Improper diet and malnutrition are the most important causes of low blood pressure. Malnutrition occurs due to the inadequate intake of calories, proteins, vitamins B and vitamin C. Some additional cause of low blood pressure may include- loss of blood and emotional instability in a person.

Low blood pressure could be treated in different ways.

Beetroot:-By having a cup of beetroot juice or having one beet root as salad everyday without fail helps to control our low blood pressure. For better results,have it twice daily. Considerable blood pressure rise will be noticed soon.

Indian spikenard :--It is a very effective remedy for the treatment of low blood pressure.Each dose should be of thirty to forty grains at a time. Always add a pinch of camphor and cinnamon while having this herb.We can also make the concoction by boiling one table spoon of this herb in 250 ml water. Remove it from fire when it is half the content. take it 3 times a day.

The use of salt in low blood pressure show good results. Until and unless the blood pressure reaches to its normal levels through good diet and other home or medicinal remedies, it is necessary that the patient should consume salty foods and half a teaspoon of salt in water, daily or have electoral water.

Nutrients:
Low blood pressure is often caused by malnutrition,therefore intake of enough protein rich food , vitamins B complex and vitamin C helps in treating the low blood pressure.Pantothenic acid has been found very beneficial in taking care of low blood pressure.therefore sufficient consumption of all these vitamins and other nutrients helps in raising the blood pressure to normal..Low blood pressure is not considered as dangerous as high blood pressure.But hypo tension as a condition should not be taken too lightly.

Epsom Salts Bath:-- It is said to be the simplest remedy for treating low blood pressure. It is made to prepare in the ordinary bath of hot water by mixing nearly one and half kg of commercial Epsom Salt. The patient is advised to remain dipped in the bathtub for 10 to 20 minutes..Best results could be obtained if the bath is taken just before retiring to bed.

Fruit for low blood pressure:--- Fruits should be a main part of the treatment for low blood pressure.As it rejuvenate the whole system.Eat fruits as much as you can. They help you to raise your blood pressure.Drop of blood pressure is a common phenomenon during pregnancy and yet not much heed is paid to it,women should learn to look after themselves and have ample amount of fruits and salad to keep the pressure normal at the time of their pregnancy.
Exercise:-
Walking, cycling, swimming and breathing exercises are good at treating low blood pressure Spend some time in fresh air in the morning, you will feel relaxed and happy( as low blood pressure causes depression.)Keep your self engaged in some activity so that you will not suffer from emotional break down.
See that you have clear bowels every morning ,Have triphala every morning with warm water to get relief.never avoid visiting a doctor if you feel low,if medication is needed you must go for it and then latter use these home remedies to help yourself.

Homeopathic medicine like carbo veg,pulsatila and sepia helps to control hypo tension.

Thanks for this good review about low blood pressure. You've covered the ground really well and in a clear way. I'm interested in the way that foods and herbs can change blood pressure readings - both personally and as a doctor who sees a lot of blood pressure patients.

Low blood pressure is always a problem - partly I think because a lot less attention is given to it than to high blood pressure. But, of course, it can still be a nightmare to deal with for many people.

I've written about low blood pressure on my own site at http://www.bloodpressurehigh.com/lowBP.html but I think I'll now add a section about food and about how things like beetroot can help.

Well done again - this is good writing.

Hi there,

This article is very useful to low blodd pressure people.

However, what about high blood pressure or essential BP??

Can you give some health tips and herbals or veg foods for that too. It will be a good idea.

I have orthostatic hypotension. My bp goes low when I'm standing, walking, etc. and then at other times it goes way up. My dr is trying to regulate it by having bp on the high side using bp medicine. However, I feel fatigued all the time and now my legs are starting to feel heavy when I walk. Is that all that can be done for someone like me?
