Tips -Lowering High Blood Pressure Naturally is Essential

By lowering your blood pressure naturally, you can improve many other aspects of your health.

Prescription medications are good at times, but for health issues such as hypertension and high cholesterol, sometimes natural remedies work best.
Why? Because they treat the underlying cause of your condition, and prescription drugs don't.

Most drugs the doctor prescribes aere synthetic, and can harm liver and other organs. They also cause many unpleasant side effects in many people. That is why learning how to lower your blood pressure using natural methods is best!

A few tips:

1. Drink lots of water!
Drinking half of your body weight in ounces every day helps flush toxins from your body and reduce blood pressure. Example: If you weight 140 pounds, drink 70 ounces of water. This is equivalent to 8 1/2 cups.

2. Eat healthy foods.
You already know you should do this, but adding certain foods to your diet such as bananas and other foods loaded with potassium is essential. Cut out the salt with salt substitutes , potassium iodide actually aids to reduce BP

3. Exercise moderately.
You don't really have to follow a prescribed plan, just exercise until it makes you feel better. You can tell the difference in how you feel, and you will know how much exercise it takes to work for you.

4. Reduce stress -
This is a BIG one. Stress is one of the leading causes of high blood pressure. Reduce stress by meditation, deep breathing, and getting plenty of sleep. If you can eliminate the source of your stress, doing so is a good idea.
Take a weekly destress bath, have some esential oil synergies at hand to destress, play with the kids, do a jigsaw!

These are just a sampling of steps to take when lowering blood pressure naturally.
There are hundreds of other things you can do, and when combined these actions will lower your readings dramatically in short time.
