Natural Hypertension Remedies - Reduce Blood Pressure Naturally
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Natural hypertension remedies are useful for those suffering from pre-hypertension, hypertension or just wishing to avoid developing this chronic problem that affects over 50 million Americans. It is estimated that the condition is not properly controlled in two thirds of these sufferers.

Your chance of having a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease or premature death increases with high blood pressure and certain groups are at higher risk including those that are:

- African Americans
- obese
- stressed or anxious
- overeating
- from a family with a history of hypertension
- diabetic
- smokers

Physicians and health care providers are often quick to prescribe medication for this condition without fully considering other options. These medications can interfere with treatment of pre-existing conditions and often more than one drug will be required. Whilst natural hypertension remedies may not totally reduce blood pressure to acceptable limits, they will potentially offset the medication otherwise required to control this chronic condition.

Natural hypertension remedies focus on lifestyle changes but may also use herbs and supplements to reduce blood pressure. The recommended natural methods to reduce blood pressure involve diet and weight management, exercise, not smoking, reducing stress and limiting salt and alcohol intake.

Avoiding processed foods and eating more fresh fruit and vegetables will help with weight control. It is also important to get thirty minutes exercise on most days, quit smoking and limit alcohol to one drink per day for women and two for men. Daily salt intake should be limited to 1,500 mg per day and you should look at ways to manage stress. Drinking plenty of water is also beneficial.

Various plans are available to help with losing weight, reducing stress, exercising and stopping smoking and these should be researched further.
