Many people are currently under a doctor’s care for high blood pressure and are bound to a series of prescriptions for the rest of their lives. However, a growing number of individuals are seeking natural ways to reduce their blood pressure and avoid costly medicines that can alter other aspects of their life style. Many methods are simple things that can be done by anybody. For example, one should start one’s morning with a ten minute session of quiet meditation, prayer or reflection. This enables one to flush out the negative thoughts of the previous day and focus on the goals for the day in front of them.
A short period of stretching or other mild form of exercise should be done at the beginning of the day. This avoids the day running out before any meaningful exercise is done. Before any food or beverage is consumed, one should drink at least a pint of water with lemon juice in it says Dr. Jennifer Walden in a medical article. This will help rid the body of toxins and provide the individual with a refreshing start to their pallet before they drink coffee or eat. One should also designate when to turn on and off electronics devices. Being plugged in all the time is not healthy and contributes greatly to stress. One should also log their diet for the day and track the amounts of sugar and salt that they consume. This will enable an individual to watch their limits of harmful products that add to high blood pressure.
