What are natural remedies for high blood pressure?
I would like some advice please on how to lower blood pressure without having to take medicine.
There are several ways to reduce blood pressure such as cutting out smoking, reducing salt intake and eating less foods which contain saturated fat (which can increase cholesterol), Reducing your weight to normal levels and taking lots of regular exercise (half an hour brisk walk each day should suffice) will also help. Learning to chill out, and removing yourself from stressful situations is beneficial also. Unfortunately some of us are just genetically pre-disposed to having high blood pressure (me included, and just like you I want to avoid medication!) and there is nothing we can do about it except trying to do all the stuff I mentioned above and going on medication if it doesn't result in a lowering of blood pressure.
Thank you , eugbug for your reply. Do you think if it is genetic there is nothing we can do? My father has high blood pressure too and I want to help him as well. Thank you for the suggestions above.
Maybe some of these natural remedies work. I haven't heard of using olive leaf extract, so even if the benefits are just due to the placibo effect, its probably worth trying.
Exercise though is essential for keeping the body and mind healthy!
Just ran across another recent study on high blood pressure, and herbs. Some of the others to try are celery, hawthorn, mistletoe, among others. Hope it helps! Combined with the dietary changes http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3210006/
There are quite a few natural remedies, that have recently been under clinical trails and proven. Among the most effective seems to be olive leaf extract. It was proven to lower blood pressure in the subjects treated. The dosage amount was 500mg twice a day.
For other helpful advice, and where to order, read my article about heart health http://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/Heart … irculation
I hope it helps. Olive leaf is an extraordinary supplement it has anti viral, anti biotic, as well as anti fungal properties. It is so gentle it can be applied topically in liquid form, yet powerful enough to treat hiv, as well as herpes. Awesome
artist101, thank you for your reply. I will give it a go and I will read your hub about natural remedies. I will have a look at olive leaf extract, too.
You are very welcome. Olive leaf helped my Mother with fibromyalgia, I hope it helps you as well ~
On top of no smoking, healthy diet and regular exercise, do some reading on using fresh ground flax seed to lower blood pressure, and changing from table salt to Celtic Sea Salt. Remember, just because parents had high blood pressure does not mean that a patient has genetically induced high blood pressure, unless we count unhealthy lifestyles as hereditary, which, in a sense, they can be.
