Introduction:Hypertension or High Blood Pressure is the result of the constricted arteries. If blood has a harder time pumping through your arteries, there are reasons for it, usually attributed to diet, however,there are other causes............
Salt and Sodium converts into fluid in the body and blood stream. Blood wants to pump through naturally and freely and an overload of salt/sodium, can impede the movement and cause elevated pressures.
Eating the right foods become very important as we age. Foods High in fat, processed foods, too many carbohydrates just begin the list of weight gain possibilities. As you gain weight, your vessels constrict which results in elevated numbers.
You lose 20 pounds, it is more than likely that you will lose less high blood pressure levels. Weight gain contributes to Hypertension and Diabetes and often occur in tandem.
Exercising is an excellent way of opening your arteries and vessels so that they can let the blood flow freer through the body. It is one of the best methods of lowering blood pressure levels, along with diet.
Getting the right amount of rest is important to your blood pressure. Finding things to relax your mind such as reading or working simple puzzles or games that you like also frees up the mind so that your vessels are no so constricted.
If you are ever diagnosed with Hypertension, begin to listen to the doctor. If he just gives you diuretics (water pills), do not neglect to take them. Peace.
