My BP is 160/100 how can i control my bp by simple natural way?

A disease of the modern age and lifestyle, high blood pressure is a silent killer that claims many lives every year. The pressure that the heart has to exert to pump the blood into the vessels is known as blood pressure. The highest pressure that the heart reaches is known as systolic pressure, and the lowest pressure between two heart beats is known as diastolic pressure.

High blood pressure is best prevented from occurring by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. High blood pressure is one condition that cannot be cured completely, and therefore adequate precautions have to be taken for the rest of your life. It puts your heart in a great danger and exposes you to the risk of many heart diseases. However, if you do suffer from high blood pressure, you can try any of these following remedies.

  • Garlic helps in reducing the pulse rate and regulating the rhythm of the heart beat. In addition, it also alleviates symptoms like dizziness, shortness of breath, and excessive gas. Consuming garlic in its raw form by eating the cloves or crushing it and drinking with warm water, has the maximum benefits.
  • You may grate a few Indian gooseberries and squeeze the juice out of them. Add some honey to this juice, and drink it every morning. This will help lower your blood pressure.
  • Lemon contains good amounts of bioflavonoid in its juice and rind. The bioflavonoid strengthens the walls of the capillaries.
  • Grapefruit is also a rich source of bioflavonoid and therefore helps in toning up the blood vessels.
  • The juice of parsley is a great remedy for high blood pressure. The basic constituents of parsley juice help in keeping the blood vessels healthy. You can also brew a tea using a few sprigs of parsley. Boil these in water, strain, and then drink the brew several times every day.
  • Juices of raw vegetables like spinach and carrot juice have many vitamins and minerals that are essential for the maintenance of the blood vessels. These juices, when consumed, combined with each other, can help in the treatment of high blood pressure.
  • Calcium and potassium that we get from our regular diet have been studied in connection with high blood pressure. It has recently been established that a potassium rich diet can help in decreasing the incidence of high blood pressure. At the same time, calcium also helps to reduce blood pressure. Both calcium and potassium help in controlling the amount of sodium in our diet.
