Low blood pressure, also known as hypotentsion, is a very common medical ailment. In order to properly understand the effects of the condition, it is imperative to understand the concept of blood pressure. The human heart beats in order to generate enough force to be able to push the blood through the veins in the body. In turn, when the blood moves through the veins, it will exert some amount of force on the walls of the veins - a phenomenon that is the basis of a pulse rate - one of the principal vital signs of life.

Blood pressure is expressed as systolic / diastolic pressures where the first measurement is captured when the heart muscle is in a state of contraction and the second number represents the diastolic reading which is taken at the time the heart muscle is in a state of relaxation. The normal readings of blood pressure are around 120 / 80 and anything above 130 / 80 is considered to be high blood pressure while anything below 90 / 60 is considered to be low blood pressure - as in your case. The biggest concern when affected by low blood pressure is the fact that the condition is unlikely to cause any symptoms until it reaches very serious levels. In most cases, early diagnoses of the condition happen by chance during a routine medical test or a medical test undertaken to find out the primary cause of another illness. When the condition is allowed to develop, it can have very serious consequences. This is primarily because there is not enough blood flow to deliver consistent amounts of oxygen and nutrients to some of the body's more vital organs such as the brain and kidney. This will cause a slow destruction of the affected organs. Some of the primary causes of low blood pressure include a faulty nutrition, a significant loss of blood from the body as well as a slow but consistent bleeding around the gastrointestinal tract or bladder.

There are a number of effective home remedy options that help in the treatment of low blood pressure. A daily intake of raw beetroot juice is known to be very effective in the treatment of low blood pressure. You could also try soaking 30 raisins in a bowl of water over the course of the night and chewing on them one at a time, first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Increase your intake of foods that are rich in proteins, vitamin C and Vitamin B.
