You or someone you know will experience blood pressure problems at some point in your lifetime. Unfortunately, the symptoms aren’t always obvious.
There may be no headache, no fever, no flushing about the face or difficulty sleeping. Many may experience this condition, also known as hypertension, without ever realizing what the problem is. Until it’s too late.
Forget What You’ve Heard about Hypertension
Hypertension can come in many forms other than the ones you’ve been told to traditionally watch out for. It can be a nosebleed, a slight headache, or just a general feeling of disharmony. Every year it leads to diabetes, strokes, heart attacks, and other illnesses, all of which are life threatening.
There’s good reason why doctors call it “the silent killer.”
And the real tragedy with hypertension-caused fatalities is they are highly avoidable with a few lifestyle changes and other blood pressure natural remedies. Here are a few tips to help out.
A running joke around our house, especially at Thanksgiving, is that to eat right, all you have to do is avoid everything on the table and eat a box of Melba Snacks instead.
But in all seriousness, food isn’t the problem. The amount of food is. Instead of avoiding everything that tastes good like its contaminated, consider reducing portion sizes. Try to eat limited portions of all the major food groups–yes, meat included–in a given day.
One suggestion you may find particularly helpful: When it comes to meat, reduce the size of your portion to the palm of your hand for beef and pork; the middle knuckle of your index finger for chicken; and the entire hand for fish.
This is one of the best natural remedies for blood pressure problems that there is, but you have to place emphasis on the word “routine.” Sustained exercise routines–think three or four times per week for a minimum of 30 minutes–can help you lose weight, tone up and feel better in the process.
In a previous post–The Best Supplements for Promoting Healthy Blood Pressure–BioSynergy emphasized the importance of magnesium and potassium in avoiding hypertension. While these properties can be found in vegetables and fruits, such as spinach and should be incorporated into your daily routine, health supplements that specifically target magnesium and potassium can help ensure that you’re getting the required daily amount.
