Natural High Blood Pressure Cures
In today's world we have to be very careful when discussing cures, treatments, and management of high blood pressure. Nature provides many natural things we can use to help manage blood pressure, but can we use these things to cure high blood pressure?
Treating vs Curing
Modern medicine creates drugs to save lives and treat, not cure. It's said that the last disease cured was Polio, back in 1955. The decision was said to be a "money thing," there were no long-term profits in curing; treating is where the monies at.
Having said that, modern medicine saves lives and this can't be denied. But we also know there are side-effects that come with these drugs, and this is one reason to at least look at natural remedies for long-term solutions.
Curing is a Combination of Mental and Physical Rejuvenation
It's scientifically proven that your brain can create and release certain chemicals that help in the recovery of some diseases.
It's also known that diet, lifestyle, and the environment play important roles in our physical well being. It's a combination of all these elements that contributes to the possibility of curing a condition such as high blood pressure.
You see we use the word "possibility." Since each person is different, it's impossible to say each and every person who uses natural ways will be guaranteed a cure - it's just not realistic.
Some people have weight problems, genetics can be a factor, while stress can also be a contributor; it's quite a smorgasbord of issues.

Now with a few ideas about what nature has provided, lets look at some of the signs and symptoms associated with high blood pressure.
Signs of High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is know as the "Silent Killer," the pressure put on your arterial walls can create other health issues, even fatal. The worse being heart damage.
It's easy to get mixed messages when you have high blood pressure. You may feel fatigued or light headed; these signs can easily be contributed to stress or a bug, but it can also be the start of high blood pressure.
These days you have access to blood pressure monitors at your local drug store, or a quick visit to your doctor will also tell you if you're at risk. So it's highly recommended, to at the very least - check your blood pressure.
Genetics: If your family has a history of high blood pressure, then you should be extra sensitive to the fact that you could be at risk to have high blood pressure.
Having said all that, lets look at some of the signs associated with high blood pressure:
- Tests - 120/80 is normal. Tests are easy and available to take.
- Blurred Vision
- Nose Bleeds
It's not uncommon for people to go for years without a hint that they have this condition; periodically have your blood pressure taken.
Are You Ignoring the Signs?
As mentioned, people go for years without knowing they have high blood pressure, or do they?
We, people, are famous for ignoring health signals because we're to busy. Or we hope the problems will just go away by themselves. There's something called "prehypertension," which gives us an added opportunity to nip this problem in the bud before it gets worse, So there are signs, there are warnings we get if we don't ignore them.
Remember: Not everything is a cure, but natural alternatives exist and they are here for all of us to use. It will be up to you to decide how you will treat your body in its time of need.
