Blood Pressure is the force in the arteries both when heart beats and at rest. And when this force became abnormal it is usually called hypertension or high blood pressure. It is defined in an adult as a blood pressure greater than or equal to 140 mm Hg systolic pressure or greater than or equal to 90 mm Hg diastolic pressure.
High blood pressure may occur in both children and adults but mostly in adults. And having this condition increases the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke.
And according to Dr. Mercola in his Natural Health Newsletter, you can lower blood pressure naturally. Here are common ways to quickly lower blood pressure without taking drugs:
- Eliminate grains and sugars as described in my nutrition plan. This will lower insulin levels and normalize blood pressure in about 75 percent of people.
- Address the common stresses in your life that tend to elevate blood pressure. EFT is a simple, effective, and inexpensive tool that you can use to help in this area.
- Getting one hour of exercise a day seems to be an important contributor to the long-term benefits of those currently suffering from high blood pressure.
