The amount of people being seen in emergency rooms daily or even worse, in morgues from heart attacks is astronomical.
And if we were to examine these people’s medical charts before the heart attack, we would probably find a large percentage suffered from high blood pressure.
Simply defined, high blood pressure is when the heart has to pump harder to deliver blood from the arteries to various parts of the body.
When measured, there are 2 numbers given. The top number is the pressure when the heart contracts and the bottom number is when the heart relaxes. Normal blood pressure is 120/80.
Statistics show that around 1 in 5 humans has high blood pressure.
But there are natural ways to lower your blood pressure and maintain it in a healthy state. I am going to give you 7 ways to do so.
Maintain Or Lower Blood Pressure Way #1: Walk
Just get up, out and walk!
So many people have chosen to drive the car or ride a train or bus, just to sit in an office chair for hours and then go home and sit on the couch.
It is no wonder that blood pressure is elevated.
Just make a point of walking more and your heart will benefit greatly.
Maintain Or Lower Blood Pressure Way #2: More Omegas
The Omegas found in fish and fish oils are great for maintaining a normal blood pressure. But so many people do not eat enough fish to get these Omegas.
But, there are many supplements available to help you get the recommended daily allowance of Omegas.
One of my favorites is Blu-Lina Organic Spirulina. Not only does this water plant provide you with Omegas, there are other nutritional needs too. You can get the Blu-Lina Spirulina here.
Maintain Or Lower Blood Pressure Way #3: Deep Breathing
Simple morning and evening deep breathing exercises are an excellent way to both lower high blood pressure and keep it maintained at a safe level.
Each morning for 5 minutes just breath deeply in and expand your gut. Now exhale slowly and release all the stress. Use an egg timer and keep doing it for the 5 minutes.
Do the same formula in the evening.
Maintain Or Lower Blood Pressure Way #4: Eat More Garlic
Not only will garlic keep those dreaded vampires away, studies also show that it is a great spice for lower blood pressure.
Garlic increases nitric oxide in our bodies which creates a relaxation for blood vessels. This allows them to dilate and more blood flows through lowering blood pressure.
So add some more garlic to your dishes.
Maintain Or Lower Blood Pressure Way #5: Lower Your Salt Intake
It has been scientifically proven that less salt means lower blood pressure.
Tempted to sprinkle salt on that food? Try adding some other spices that do not contain salt.
Maintain Or Lower Blood Pressure Way #6: Drink Coconut Water
I’m not telling you to make a trip to the Caribbean just to get your blood pressure down. You can find coconut water at many health stores and even some grocery stores. But do read the ingredients. Some of them are no different than soda pop with a bunch of sugar added.
Look for true, organic coconut water and the potassium in it will help to level the sodium content in your system and helps maintain a level blood pressure reading.
Maintain Or Lower Blood Pressure Way #7: Less Alcohol
Alcohol and high blood pressure are directly related.
And while a small portion of alcohol can actually be good for you, we ask, what is a small portion?
Experts say that 1 alcoholic beverage for women per day and 2 for men is in the range of small.
There are many other ways to lower blood pressure… Grapefruit and Passion fruit juices are both known to help.
I will probably write more at a later time, but for now, use these and get that blood pressure at an optimum level.
If you have any questions, post them below.
Now I must say… Just Keep On Movin!
