Monitor Hypertension Blood Pressure

You can control high blood pressure naturally. Don't let anyone tell you, you can't. Just because you take high blood pressure medication now, doesn't mean you have to do it for the rest of your life. No matter what medication you take it will have side effects that cause harm. In fact, the longer you take it the higher the risk.

To control high blood pressure and do it naturally all you need to do is make a few changes in lifestyle. It's not that difficult, especially if you do it at your own pace. When you make changes at your own pace with small doable goals then they will be permanent. This way you're not stressed out over what you think you have to give up.

Speaking of stress this is one of those things that can elevate high blood pressure. Therefore, if you want to control high blood pressure you need to control stress levels. You can do this by making note of triggers and avoid those triggers. It may be a person, place or thing, whatever it is avoid it. Instead, remain calm and do activities that are relaxing and enjoyable.

Exercise is another way to help control high blood pressure and is also a known stress reliever. Choose any form of exercise you like and do it on a consistent basis, which is about 3-5 days a week for 30-60 minutes according to fitness level.

Are you overweight? This also elevates blood pressure, so if you're overweight then you need to get down to a healthy weight. The best way to do this is to educate yourself on calories and how they work. Use the internet to help you calculate calories needed to lose weight. Fitday.com and sparkpeople.com are both great weight loss tools and are free.

Cut back or cut out foods that are high in sodium by reading the labels. Salt is a problem for those who want to control high blood pressure. As mentioned earlier, you don't need to do it all at once, but set small doable goals to make progress.

Here are some examples of small doable goals: Eat only foods without salt for a day then 2 days, then 3 and so forth. Exercise 2 days a week for 20 minutes then add 5 minute increments and a third day when you feel ready. Eat only 1500 calories 3 days out of the week and drink water with meals.

These small doable goals anyone can do and in time create a healthy lifestyle. It may take several months to control high blood pressure, but that's okay. In the meantime take medication if needed and gradually taper off as you get healthier.
