Learn the three ways you can lower blood pressure without medication
If you've been diagnosed with hypertension, I recommend trying natural treatments to lower your blood pressure before using any type of costly (and potentially dangerous) prescription medication.
There are three general ways to lower blood pressure naturally:
- Diet—Foods that Lower Blood Pressure
- Lifestyle Habits that Lower Blood Pressure Naturally
- Vitamins and minerals that complement blood pressure–lowering programs
While you may be able to lower your blood pressure by following the recommendations in just one category, you will get the best results if you combine strategies from all three approaches.
Finally, as you implement these natural treatments for lowering blood pressure, monitor your pressure closely and work with your doctor. If you’re already taking a prescription blood pressure medication, you may need to adjust (or even eliminate) your dosage as the natural treatment takes hold.
