Blood Pressure Management

What are some common ways to naturally lower blood pressure in order to get a fair assessment from a doctor. I went for a physical today for a job i applied for and everything went good except for my blood pressure which some of it is due from anxiety. But i also say that im probably not staying properly hydrated either. Online says about 96 ounces of water for the average person. But i dont think i drink anywhere near that and that is an honest answer. So im trying to figure out small things that might not be thought of that can contribute to it. I know eatting is definitely not one of them though i have never had high blood pressure because of what i ate i don't eat to much salt. I understand that anxiety can make blood pressure sky rocket but trying to find out other common ways to lower blood pressure, im not expecting a huge drop because of anxiety but maybe i can get it lower. I have seen my blood pressure 120 on a rare occasion but usually somewhere at 140ish but today it was at 158/100 so the doctors were concerned.

Re: Blood Pressure Management

Body conditioning helps with blood flow and blood pressure. Regular exercise will help also.

Re: Blood Pressure Management

Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 11 mm Hg if you have high blood pressure. This eating plan is known as the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet.

Re: Blood Pressure Management

It makes sense: a good diet will help reduce blood pressure. You have been given brilliant advice.

Re: Blood Pressure Management

If you want to lower blood pressure, try relaxation and meditation methods. The heart causes blood pressure so if you put your heart at ease, it will work in your favour.
