12 Ways To Lower Blood Pressure Naturally Without Drugs

So, you’ve found out that you have high blood pressure.  You’re doomed to a lifetime of pills and nasty side-effects, right?  Wrong.
There are many natural ways to lower blood pressure.  Here’s a handy action plan for natural blood pressure control:

1. Stop smoking. Tobacco hardens your arteries and the walls of your blood vessels. If you can’t quit cold turkey, ask your doctor for help in developing a plan. Plus, let’s face it… smoking is so… last century.

2. Time to get some exercise – normally an average of at least 30 minutes a day. You don’t have to join a health club and start grunting in the weight room – even moderate walking is great. Ask your doctor to help you develop a plan that’s right for your needs. Exercise is a habit just like any other, once you get in the swing, you’ll get addicted to feeling great.

3. Watch the salt (sodium). You’ve probably heard this advice before, and it’s true, but not for everyone. Around 58% of people with high blood pressure are “salt sensitive.” If you are salt sensitive, it’s best to keep sodium intake to no more than 2,400 milligrams a day, or ideally under 1,500 mg a day. Processed and fast foods are packed with sodium. If you keep a “salt log” for a single day you’ll be amazed at just how much is in our diets. You can easily exceed the entire days recommended amount in a single fast food meal.

4. Get your potassium. Most people eat a sodium to potassium ratio of 2:1 – we eat twice as much sodium as we do potassium. The ideal ratio for blood pressure control is 1:5 – we should be eating five times more potassium than sodium. Excellent dietary sources of potassium are: apricots, avocado, bananas, cantaloupe, honeydew, kiwis, lima beans, milk, oranges and OJ, potatoes, prunes, spinach, tomatoes and squash. Another way to reduce sodium and get more potassium is by switching your table salt to potassium-salt products like ‘NoSalt’ and ‘NuSalt’ – both are available at most supermarkets.

5. No more “Heavy Metal”. Now, we’re not talking about the music here – we’re talking about lead, cadmium and mercury – all of which are linked to hypertension. For example, if you live in an old house with lead pipes, you might have lead poisoning – which can impair the liver and cause high blood pressure. Smoker? Cigarette smoke contains cadmium. Dental fillings? Many, but not all, contain mercury. You can find out if you have unhealthy levels of heavy metals in your body through a simple test called ‘hair mineral analysis.’

6. Time to get your weight on target. Do you know what your ideal weight is? Most people don’t. Simple solution: ask your doctor. Added pounds make your heart work overtime. In nearly all cases, high blood pressure is reduced or eliminated along with unwanted weight. Losing weight isn’t one size fits all (no pun intended), everyone is different. Ask your doctor to help you develop a custom plan that’s right for you.

7. Avoid refined carbohydrates (sugar). Sugar is a key factor in atherosclerosis (a condition in which fatty material collects along the walls of the arteries). Sugar causes spikes of the hormone insulin. Elevated insulin, in turn, is associated with increased triglycerides, cholesterol, higher risk of cardiovascular disease, type II diabetes and… high blood pressure.

8. Time to watch that alcohol. No more than one drink per day for women and two for men. Watching your alcohol is also clinically proven to prevent cocktail party gaffes.

9. Avoid Caffeine. In some, but not all people, caffeine triggers blood pressure spikes.

10. Eat fresh, eat healthy. Check out the DASH Diet (DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) for an overview of the fruits, veggies, whole grains and “low-fat, high-protein” smart options. You can get a free copy at www.HowTo.LowerBloodPressureDrugFree.com. People who followed this diet in a clinical study had average blood pressure reductions of 11.4 systolic and 5.5 diastolic. You know the all too true old cliché: You are what you eat.

11. Get enough sleep. Emerging research suggests that sleep deprivation and high blood pressure are linked. What’s more important – that last hour of late night TV or waking refreshed and feeling great?

12. Manage your stress. We live in a time when people are exposed to more stress than frankly our bodies were designed to handle. Just like you wouldn’t skip a shower, or brushing your teeth, or not eat for a whole day, you need to make time every day for deep relaxation. TV time and surfing the net don’t count – those are the potato chips of the relaxation world. Guided Breathing, through techniques such as the Breathtaking Nature Method, is one of the easiest, fastest and most powerful ways to get your daily dose of deep relaxation.

How To Lower Your Blood Pressure With A Towel

Another simple and clinically proven technique for lowering blood pressure without drugs is called “hand grip isometrics.” Isometrics are when a muscle is tensed but without moving. For example, if you make a fist with your hand and squeeze – that’s an example of an isometric exercise.

In the late 60’s, the US Air Force commissioned studies to find ways to combat the “tunnel vision” and “blackout” experienced by pilots during high G-force maneuvers. One technique researched was the use of isometric hand-grips. When the test subjects squeezed a control stick, their blood pressure would spike, thereby increasing blood flow to the brain and preventing loss of vision and consciousness.

One of the researchers, Dr. Ronald Wiley, a cardiopulmonary physiologist at Miami University (Oxford, OH), made a very unexpected observation when looking over the data after the study: While blood pressure spiked during the isometric exercises themselves – overall resting blood pressure went down.

In research published in the American College of Sports Medicine, people that did hand-grip isometrics had average blood pressure reductions of 12.5 systolic and 14.9 diastolic.

Science aside, isometric hand-grip exercises are also really relaxing – and so easy to do. One trick is to take a face cloth or hand towel and roll it into a “jelly roll.” Make two of them, one for each hand.

Next, squeeze hard on them for a second and get a feel for your “100% squeeze pressure.” Now, try squeezing at about 30% of that 100% pressure – that’s the “sweet spot” for best results – 30% of your “max squeeze pressure.” The goal here is to allow your forearm muscles to work – but not to overdo it to the degree that your blood pressure spikes.

Now, you simply alternate squeezing (always at no more than 30% of your full strength) and relaxing, squeezing and relaxing. There are many variations on how long to “squeeze” and how long to “relax.” In the study cited above, the participants would: squeeze for 2 minutes; rest for 3 minutes; and repeat this four times, for a total of 20 minutes per session; 3 days a week.

In most people, it takes a few weeks to get the deepest benefits from isometrics. Also, when you quit doing them, your overall blood pressure will tend to creep back up to where you were before – you have to stick with it for it to work.

Another powerful technique is to mix Guided Breathing with these isometric exercises. For example, you can slowly squeeze as you inhale, hold the squeeze while you hold your breath, and then slowly release your grip during your exhale.

You can get free Guided Breathing audio samples to try this right now at: www.HowTo.LowerBloodPressureDrugFree.com.

Beyond lowering blood pressure permanently in the majority of people, this technique is also great for cutting stress, migraines, and more. I can’t resist the chance for a pun here: The secret to natural blood pressure control is… in the palm of your hands.

As always, check with your physician before doing this or any other form of exercise – especially if you have any cardiovascular issues.

9 Herbs and Supplements That Might Lower Your Blood Pressure

What 9 herbs and supplements might lower your blood pressure (*and which common candy can make it go up)?

1. Garlic. A few smaller studies seem to suggest that garlic might help lower your blood pressure. Larger, more clinically sound studies are needed to establish a definite connection.

2. Cocoa. Cocoa is packed with antioxidants known as polyphenols. Some studies have shown people who eat chocolate have median blood pressure reductions of 4.7 points systolic and 2.8 points diastolic. Results like this are in line with what you might expect from some common blood pressure medications. There are some catches though…
a) Chocolate also contains oxalate, which binds to calcium and inhibits its absorption into our bodies. b) Further complicating the picture, sugar might be linked with blocking calcium too. c) Chocolate is also very high in saturated fat. Maybe you might want to consider some other foods that are rich in polyphenols like: apples, blackberries, blueberries, cantaloupe, cherries, cranberries, grapes, pears, plums, raspberries, strawberries, broccoli, cabbage, celery, onions and parsley.

3. Blond psyllium. The research is inconclusive, but 12 grams of soluble fiber per day might help reduce your blood pressure. A good source of soluble fiber is blond psyllium husk. Other top sources of fiber are beans (pinto, lima, kidney, etc.), peas (black-eyed, etc.) and lentils.

4. Calcium. Diets low in calcium have been linked to an increased incidence of high blood pressure. But… taking calcium supplements has not been associated with preventing high blood pressure. Excellent natural sources of calcium include: Milk; yogurt; cheese; sunflower seeds; sesame seeds; dark green leafy veggies; fortified tofu; and fish with small edible bones (like sardines and salmon).

5. Vitamin D. Recent research shows some promise that Vitamin D might help protect against high blood pressure by helping maintain healthy levels of calcium and phosphorous in the blood. Excellent food sources include: cod liver oil, salmon, mackerel, milk, egg yolks, beef liver, cheese and dairy, and tuna or sardines canned in oil. Plus, ten minutes a day of sunshine helps your body make its own natural Vitamin D.

6. DHA and EPA. These are Omega-3 fatty acids, most often associated with fish and fish oil capsules. Some research shows a small reduction in blood pressure with these fish-derived Omega-3 fatty acids. There are some risks associated with the higher doses that might be needed to get any benefit though, including internal bleeding.

7. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Alpha-linolenic acid is the veggie-derived precursor to Omega-3. One study suggested that flaxseed (high in ALA) might reduce blood pressure, but right now the evidence is less compelling than that with fish-derived Omegas. Excellent sources include: flaxseed oil, linseed oil, soybean oil, olive oil, canola oil and walnut oil.

8. Coenzyme Q-10. This vitamin-like coenzyme with antioxidant properties is a key part of cellular energy production. Low levels have been linked with high blood pressure, but it’s not clear if this is a cause or effect. More studies are needed before a conclusive connection can be made.

9. Anti-ACE peptides. This all-natural supplement is derived from the ‘bonito’ fish. Three clinical studies have shown that two thirds of people with high blood pressure respond significantly to it. Better yet, not a single person in safety studies has reported any negative side effects.

*Now, which common candy can make your blood pressure go up? Licorice. It contains glycyrrhetinic acid (say that three times fast) which is linked to sodium and water retention – and therefore increased blood pressure. Of course in today’s world of artificial flavorings, you might be hard pressed to find real licorice. Good news – the fake stuff isn’t linked to blood pressure issues. [As yet another interesting side note: DGL – which is licorice which has had that (glycyrrhetinic) acid removed, is clinically proven for treating peptic ulcers and reflux disease. In double-blind tests, it beats Zantac and Tagamet.]

So, getting back to the main question of what herbs and supplements might lower your blood pressure… Does this mean that you can eat things like a sesame seed encrusted piece of salmon, drizzled in garlic infused olive oil, served on a bed of leafy greens with a side of lentil soup and your blood pressure will go down? Yes, and it’s been clinically proven through studies such as the DASH diet.

[Your needs are unique. Overdoing one thing can create unforeseen issues elsewhere, especially with drug interactions. Vitamins and supplements are dangerous in high doses. The best place to start is to meet with your doctor and see what dietary changes make the most sense for your whole health picture.]

3 Ways To Tell if You Have High Blood Pressure Symptoms

That irritating “Type A” supervisor at work is exactly the type of person to have high blood pressure, right? Actually, not necessarily. In nearly all cases, high blood pressure has no symptoms whatsoever.

So how can you tell? Have a test:

Option #1) Get one done for free. You can go to your supermarket or pharmacy and use one of their “Free Test” machines. Unfortunately, these machines often haven’t been serviced in years. Ask the pharmacist when the last service was. If you get a confused look with a shrugged shoulder, it’s not a good sign.

Option #2) Visit your doctor. The one catch with this is called “white coat hypertension.” Some people are just naturally edgy at the doctor and this can temporarily drive up your blood pressure. It’s no excuse not to go though – The Mayo Clinic recommends that everybody over 20 years old get a professional blood pressure check at least every two years.

Option #3) Do-it-yourself. One of the best ways to get a really accurate overview of your blood pressure is to get in a home monitor. Some people have “morning hypertension,” for example, which might never be caught except if you do a test right when you roll out of bed. Prices on home-test machines have really come down in recent years. “Omron,” for example, makes some excellent models. It’s a wise investment.

Now, with all of this said, there are indeed some symptoms of high blood pressure. Calling high blood pressure, “The Silent Killer because it has no symptoms,” isn’t entirely true.

Headaches, dizziness and nosebleeds are all potential warning signs. But, they typically only occur in cases of dangerously high blood pressure. Plus, because these symptoms are so common and easily ignored, they usually pass unnoticed as “It’s nothing, I just have a headache,” etc.

Another indicator of high blood pressure is ‘sleep apnea.’ Sleep apnea is when people stop breathing briefly while they sleep, often associated with heavy snoring. [As an interesting side note, snoring is also an indicator of type II diabetes.]

Blood pressure frequently increases gradually as we age. Especially as we get older, it’s increasingly important to stay vigilant about knowing where our blood pressure is. How long has it been since your last blood pressure check? Not to be overly melodramatic but your life depends on it. Time to get tested today.
