Hello Water Friend,

As you probably know, people who have high blood pressure are at higher risk for serious illness with coronavirus.

High blood pressure is often a consequence of one or more of the following controllable factors:

• Chronic dehydration

• Unhealthy diet

• Physical inactivity

• Obesity

• Tobacco use

• Excess alcohol.

According to the Mayo Clinic, high blood pressure can lead to complications including:

• Heart attack or stroke

• Aneurysm

• Heart failure

• Weakened and narrowed blood vessels in your kidneys

• Thickened or torn blood vessels in the eyes

• Metabolic syndrome

• Dementia.

When high blood pressure is diagnosed, doctors often prescribe medications such as blood thinners.

As a natural health consultant, I know from experience that many people can improve blood circulation and overall heart health with diet and lifestyle changes.

Thus, our feature article is titled “Natural Therapies for Blood Pressure Normalization.”

However, if you have elevated blood pressure or are already taking blood pressure medication, talk to your doctor, of course, before making any dietary changes.

Many of the recommendations in these articles are common sense and can be used as complimentary therapies to traditional medicine.

Natural Therapies for Blood Pressure Normalization

Natural therapies for blood pressure normalization include proper hydration, plant-based diet, moderate exercise, and specific herbs and vitamin supplements.

Whether blood pressure is low, high or normal depends on a number of factors, including the output from the heart, the resistance to blood flow through the blood vessels, and the volume of blood flow throughout the circulatory system.

The most prevalent health concern with blood pressure involves high blood pressure, or hypertension.

Medical doctors often prescribe medications for high blood pressure, most of which tend to have unhealthy side effects. In fact, many people come to the health food store where I work looking for alternatives because they can't stand the side effects.

A number of alternative or natural therapies have been proven to help normalize blood pressure.

However, it is essential that you work with a health care practitioner for monitoring blood pressure if you decide to try alternative therapies.
