Tips To Reduce Pressure

Hi friends,
High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is a common problem and needs regular monitoring. Doctors identify high blood pressure when the Sphygmomanometer reading is 140/90 mmHg or more. This can lead to kidney failure, heart attacks and other draining health conditions. So I would like to write some points on lowering blood pressure.

* Find Out What Your Reading Says:
Find out the exact reading on the Sphygmomanometer by visiting a doctor at least once every month.

* Make Changes In Your Diet:
Get ready to make changes in your diet and lifestyle. Follow the advice of your doctor and take the prescribed medicines.

* Avoid Tobacco:
Avoid smoking or inhaling any tobacco products. Please Know that tobacco contracts your blood vessels and makes the heart beat faster resulting in the increasing of your blood pressure.
* Exercise A Lot:
Exercise regularly and lose weight in case you are obese and overweight.

Practice relaxation techniques such as proper breathing and meditation as these are proven stress-busters. Perform them at least once a day.

* Stop Consuming Fatty Foods:
Avoid fatty foods, especially non-vegetarian items. Eat plenty of fruits and green vegetables.

* Limit Your Intake Of Salt:
Limit your daily sodium intake(common salt intake) as it increases blood pressure.

* Get Feedback:
Get biofeedback from certified trainers. You may contact reliable trainers who are located closer to your home.
