How to control high blood pressure without medication
If you’ve been diagnosed with high blood pressure (a systolic pressure — the top number — of 140 or above or a diastolic pressure — the bottom number — of 90 or above), you might be worried about taking medication to bring your numbers down.
Lifestyle plays an important role in treating your high blood pressure. If you successfully control your blood pressure with a healthy lifestyle, you may avoid, delay or reduce the need for medication. A lot of people don’t pay attention to their diet, and thus because victims of such diseases. To my knowledge, there are a lot of people who don’t eat breakfast, they just drink tea and eat a stomach full of food for of lunch. Just like this, they have dinner in the same way and then complain, “ I only eat twice and my weight is still increasing”, and obesity is the mother of many diseases.
Here are few things you can make to lower your blood pressure and keep it down.
Blood pressure often increases as weight increases. Losing just 10 pounds can help reduce your blood pressure. In general, the more weight you lose, the lower your blood pressure. Losing weight also makes any blood pressure medications you’re taking more effective. You and your doctor can determine your target weight and the best way to achieve it.
Regular physical activity — at least 30 to 60 minutes most days of the week — can lower your blood pressure by 4 to 9 millimetres of mercury (mm Hg). And it doesn’t take long to see a difference. If you haven’t been active, increasing your exercise level can lower your blood pressure within just a few weeks.
But avoid being a “weekend warrior.” Trying to squeeze all your exercise in on the weekends to make up for weekday inactivity isn’t a good strategy. Those sudden bursts of activity could actually be risky.
Eat a healthy diet
You could start by looking at your daily diet. Cut down fat! Eating too much fat is bad for you, and because it contains a lot of calories, could make you overweight. Try to eat variety of foods. Eat less fried food, choose lean meat or try to avoid meat and add vegetables and lentils in your diet, choose low fat milk and yogurt, choose low fat ice cream, and eat baked or grilled meat dishes. You also need to reduce salt in your diet. Too much salt in your diet can give you high blood pressure.
Also add carrots, apples, lemon, ginger, garlic and egg plant in your diet. Drink pomegranate juice, it will reduce your cholesterol level.
Make a drink for High blood Pressure
Water – 8 glasses
Green tea – 6 tsp
Jamun vinegar – 1 tbsp
Kalwanji – ½ tsp
Green cardamoms – 2
In 8 glass of water add all above ingredients and cook until 6 glasses left. Take whole day gradually with lemon juice and cinnamon.
Reduce sodium in your diet
Even a small reduction in the sodium in your diet can reduce blood pressure by 2 to 8 mm Hg. Most healthy adults need only between 1,500 and 2,400 milligrams (mg) of sodium a day. But if you have high blood pressure, aim for less than 1,500 mg of sodium a day.
