No. But take precautions, so it remains well controlled in future also. Natural ways to lower blood pressure If you were diagnosed with high BP, what can you do to lower it naturally? Diet & exercise are key. Exercise, diet and losing weight can truly lower your blood pressure. Pills are not a substitute for treating high BP Diet Most people only need 1,500 mg of sodium a day. Did U know there are 2,300 mg of salt in one teaspoon? Before you add salt to your meal, think about that. The average person’s diet has 3,400 mg of sodium a day! People with BP issues should ideally get around 2,000 mg a day. A good diet to follow to lower your blood pressure is the DASH diet, which stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. It’s an eating plan that emphasizes vegetables, fruit and low-fat dairy, as well as whole grains, fish and reduced amounts of fat and red meat. If you want to make an impact on your BP , you also have to become a label reader. Remember to read serving size. Ignore the percent daily value, and focus on the amount of sodium per serving. Also, reduced sodium just means it’s 25 percent less sodium than the comparable food product. In general, use fresh and frozen ingredients, and choose low-sodium soups, meats, cheese and condiments — ketchup has a lot of salt! Bread, too, has a lot of sodium, so be careful. There are numerous salt-free seasonings, such as basil, cinnamon, chili powder, cumin, dill, ginger, marjoram, nutmeg, oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme and tumeric. Use those if you can. EXERCISE Finally, please exercise. Losing weight and exercising consistently can lower your blood pressure by 5 to 10 mmHg. Aim for 75 minutes of vigorous exercise a week or 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week to see a benefit. Find what you like to do, and do it consistently. There is no magic exercise; focus on what you like to do and don’t mind doing most days of the week. Finally Monitor your BP, Morning and Evening, and share the records with your cardiologist.
