The Holistic Way of Treating High Blood Pressure

A Holistic Doctor thinks of blood pressure drastically different from a Conventional medical doctor.

A Natural Care Doctor will advise you to,

  • drink extra glasses of water, besides, your regular 64 ounces
  • eat crushed cloves of raw garlic every day
  • use bananas to lower your elevated Blood Pressure
  • take fish oil
  • drink 1/2 lemon with water twice a day
  • drink coconut water and use coconut oil when cooking
  • add a bit of Cayenne pepper sprinkled on your food
  • drink onion juice
  • use cinnamon powder along with some honey mixed with water

He'll make sure you lower your blood pressure to an average reading by eating sensibly and create a food plan which includes a variety of vegetables in every meal.

And, moderating your sodium intake does help too, but not as much as you're conditioned to think!

Your abnormal Blood Pressure reading is usually a sign that your bowels aren't working properly. You should have a complete bowel movement after every meal! If you don't have a bowel movement after every meal, your blood pressure will naturally increase.

Lack of bowel movements causes your Low-Density Lipoprotein to rise since the extra cholesterol in your cells are not being removed fast enough. It begins to accumulate in your blood vessels, restricting your blood flow, which creates pressure on your pumping heart. Hence the term high cholesterol comes into play!

Exercise and Eat Fresh Oranges to Regulate High Blood Pressure

Regularly exercising and staying hydrated with half your body weight in ounces does dramatically help to lower your blood pressure. You must eat food with heaps of fiber and healthy fats like olive oil, nuts, avocado and seeds, Omit unhealthy foods (empty calories, high-sodium foods, added sugar, refined grains, and unhealthy fats).

Choose fermented dairy foods and consume not more than 2 to 3 servings a day, limit animal protein in lean cuts to 6 ounces per day, and eat 8 to 10 servings of vegetables and fruits.

Produce like bananas, green veggies, potatoes, organic dairy products, beans, and avocados are high in potassium which helps to lessen the effects of sodium.

Remember to eat plenty of fish every week too, and don't smoke. Do your utmost to avoid highly processed foods and refined sugar.

Unhealthy food choices are foods that contain heaps of sugar and artificial colors, preservatives, especially hydrogenated fat. This type of fake fat is regular oil that's zapped with hydrogen atoms in order to preserve the shelf life of packaged foods.

A diet low in calcium, magnesium, and potassium can raise blood pressure, increase fluid retention, narrow arteries and interfere with heart palpitations, and so can a diet high in saturated fat and caffeine.

If you're stressed, your blood pressure will naturally rise temporarily, because, stress causes your arteries to constrict and forces your heart to work harder. Your Blood Pressure will also rise if you are overweight and live a couch potato life. It is necessary to live an active lifestyle and feel happy overall and practice mindful eating.

Stay within normal weight for your height, decide to eat healthy whole foods, omit alcohol and drink lots of quality water. This will permit you to live a healthier life without feeling flushed with high-blood pressure or low blood pressure.

Oranges have been proven effective in the treatment of High Blood Pressure; eat it whole with the seeds for optimal results

The Conventional Way of Treating Blood Pressure

A General Doctor will typically shock you about your blood pressure if your blood pressure reading in not within normal limits. A standard reading is between 110/70 to 120/80. If you are consistently not within this range for three or more months, he will probably require you take medication. There are many medications to lower blood pressure. They all essentially do the same thing; that is they are dialectics. They make you urinate excessively.

These medications work quickly and many have unpleasant side effects. I would much rather be on a health kick. I would fancy exercise, drinking jolly old-fashion water, and eating sensibly, then be deemed to ingest horrible medications with detrimental side effects.

It's all up to you! However, if, you put your mind to living a healthy life, you will not have an issue of High Blood Pressure.

In my opinion, fast options don't work satisfactorily. It's best to do things slowly, and take a deep cleansing breath in the midst of it all.

    Great hub! Holistic docs truly look at the body as one unit, instead of a separate piece that they specialize in. You bring out great points about the too easy to take medications.

    "Blood Pressure, true or false?"

    The hub is informative and excellent.

    Human being is combination of body and soul. Both need natural growth in a balanced way. The things in the environment do have effect on both the body and the soul. Pleasure and Anger exhibit it often. Every thing in human beings is in a system and both way conrtrolled by the Creator and yet the liberty and choice is there for human beings.Nature takes care of the defects and most of the defects are healed by taking some time and where defects are diagnosed human intelligence and faculties have been blessed with vision to findout the deffect and repair it by external counter acting material available in the environment called medicines or other processes. ignorance, negligence, arrogance, over or under indulgence or nourishment, imbalance and unnatural way of living all have their impact which is adverse. Nature is so kind and merciful to human beings that even in the worst situation helps assists to recoup the deficienceies and excrete the excesses by variou means.

    Beware! In the Remembrance of God there lies the satisfaction of hearts.

    For every sickness there is a remedy.

    Real health is the Divine Grant.

    May God bless us all.
