Today I thought I would touch on a medical condition that I personally struggle with: high blood pressure. High blood pressure can be caused by many factors, such as stress, diet, lack of exercise, and more. Left untreated, it can be lead to a stroke, or even death. Fortunately, there are several ways to lower your blood pressure and live a healthy, normal life.
#1: Relax! Sometimes, a rise in blood pressure could be the result of a stressful situation in your life. When you take the time to cool down and relax, n ot only will you feel better mentally, it could have a positive effect on your blood pressure as well. However, if those numbers still look a bit high, you may want to consider a change in your diet, which leads us to number 2.
#2: Watch what you eat. High intakes of table salt have been linked to increased blood pressure, and sometimes, cutting table salt out of your diet may be enough to bring your blood pressure into normal range. So, instead of adding salt, consider adding broccoli, berries, and whole grain oats to your diet.
#3: Get moving! Exercise is a great way to help combat high blood pressure. Walking the dog or going for a jog are not only great options, but can also be fun!
#4: Consider supplementation. I personally take Cardio-Juvenate by Erase Disease to help control my blood pressure. Its benefits are many, and is great tasting too! For more information, please see Cardio-Juvenate, Classic Berry.
#5: See a doctor. A physician is the only person who can diagnose high blood pressure, and may even be able to prescribe medication to help to control the issue. Do not replace the advice of your physician with any of the activities listed in this blog.
Thanks for reading, and stay healthy!
