How To Become Better With LOW BLOOD PRESSURE

Recent research emphasizes the importance of a healthy lifestyle, including a fitness regimen, for both the prevention and treatment of high blood pressure. Often, changes in diet and exercise habits are enough to control blood pressure without medication, especially for people with mild to moderate high blood pressure. Sometimes diet and exercise can even reduce the need for medication and thus reduce side effects and lower costs.

If you are already taking medication for high blood pressure, it is important that you discuss lifestyle changes with your doctor and continue taking your prescribed medication. If lifestyle changes improve blood pressure, your doctor will want to work with you to safely and effectively reduce your dose. Here are some important things you can do to prevent and control high blood pressure.

One major factor is reducing your sodium intake. Many people with high blood pressure find that reducing their sodium intake also lowers blood pressure. Know which foods are high in sodium and avoid them as much as possible.

Regular exercise is the single most important habit to prevent high blood pressure for three reasons:

Firstly, it helps prevent and control high blood pressure. Previously sedentary individuals who began regular exercise experienced an average drop of six or seven points in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

Second, active people have lower mortality rates than their sedentary peers, even when they have the same blood pressure. Studies have shown that exercise reduces the risk of heart and other diseases. Exercise also helps prevent obesity, which is another risk factor for high blood pressure.

Third, regular exercise provides the foundation for successful behaviour change programs. Exercise makes you feel good and feel positive about yourself. Stress reduction is one of the biggest benefits of exercise. Stress not only raises blood pressure, but it also makes you less inclined to stick to your positive diet plan.

A smoking cessation program or a decision to reduce your alcohol intake.

Eating more fruits, vegetables and whole grains boosts your intake of important minerals like calcium and potassium, not to mention vitamins and fibre. One study found that volunteers who consumed foods high in these foods and low in fat (such as those prepared by our on-staff nutritionist) lowered systolic blood pressure by four points and diastolic by three points. . This small but significant shortfall was met only by diet. Add exercise, stress management, and weight loss for people who are overweight, and the reduction in blood pressure often improves significantly.

Eating well and getting regular exercise are the cornerstones.

Absence program out! Don't focus on losing weight; Pay attention to healthy lifestyle. Weight loss can be achieved by cutting down on "junk food", eating more fruits, vegetables and grains, and increasing physical activity. Even a relatively small loss, such as 5 to 10 pounds, can lower blood pressure. The most important goal is to develop healthy habits that stick with you.

Lifelong, to keep the weight off. Weight cycling (gaining and losing weight repeatedly) can raise your blood pressure and be harmful to your health.

Reducing stress is another lifelong task. Take stress management workshops, develop your sense of humour and read some good books. Develop coping strategies that increase your resistance to stress-related illnesses. And don't forget the importance of exercise to reduce stress.

Limiting your intake of alcohol and caffeine will have a profound effect on your health. You should try to reduce your intake of alcohol and caffeine, if at all.
