Blood pressure reflects the power with which the blood pumps from heart to the arteries. The normal parameters are 120/80 mmHg. However, sometimes they can be higher. In this case, the blood moves through the arteries with more force, causing damage at the tissue and blood vessel levels. Even worse, high blood pressure can determine other health problems – heart attack, kidney damage or strokes.
The recommended medication usually regulates the blood pressure, but most of the times it can cause other complications that in the beginning the patient is not aware of. Fortunately, there are some natural methods that can help you control your high blood pressure.
First of all, you need to change your alimentation. Along with a healthy diet, you should perform some exercises, for at least half an hour every day. Then you can use these remedies to regulate your blood pressure.
Drink some apple cider vinegar
Prepare a drink by mixing 1 tbsp of honey, 1 glass of water and 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar. Consume this mixture two times a day. Alternatively, you can opt for apple cider vinegar instead of coffee. It will boost your energy and lower your blood pressure.
Honey and apple cider vinegar are rich in potassium, a mineral that controls the sodium levels in your body, lowering hypertension.
Did you know that smoking, apart from damaging your lungs, also increases your blood pressure? Now that you know, you should think twice before smoking another cigarette.
Reduce salt consumption
Sometimes, people forget that an excessive consumption of salt can be dangerous. Why? Because salt determines your body to retain fluid and implicitly increase the blood pressure. You can do a favor to your body and cut salt for good. You can still have taste in your meals by using other ingredients.
Consume baking soda
Pour 1/8 tsp of baking soda in a glass with water. Consume the resulting composition twice a day on an empty stomach. Follow this remedy on a daily basis for about 14 days, then take a 2-week break. If your pressure is still high, you can start the treatment again.
