Let’s face it. Many of us have come to accept high blood pressure as an eventual part of our lives. What we hear from our doctors and prescription ads all sound good, but we’ve heard all of that before. Yet still, many of us still suffer from the many symptoms of high blood pressure that weigh down on our daily activities. Some of you may be taking medication that may be suppressing some of the symptoms, but that’s the issue. It’s only temporary.
If you’re long time sufferer of high blood pressure or even if you’re blood tests results show you’re at risk for it, these steps will help alleviate your ailment.
Your body produces a surge of hormones when you’re in a stressful situation. These hormones temporarily increase your blood pressure by causing your heart to beat faster and your blood vessels to narrow. There’s no proof that stress by itself causes long-term high blood pressure.
When upset, take a deep breath, hold for 3 seconds, and breath out from your mouth as slowly as you can. Repeat 3-5 times.
Meditate for 5 minutes.
Listen to soothing music where you are.
Massage your feet to bring tension and heat away from the head.
Not too difficult, was it? Relieving your stress dramatically changes your blood pressure to bring it down to healthy levels. Doing this daily or even more than once a day will improve your condition.
