High Blood Pressure Remedies Do Exist

By Kathy Forcey

Many people are affected by high blood pressure (hypertension) but do not even know that they have it. There are no apparent symptoms in the beginning stages of hypertension so if it goes unchecked, it may cause complications in the long term. For this reason, high blood pressure is frequently referred to as the “silent killer.”

There are a range of symptoms that are associated with high blood pressure in the later stages such as nausea, headaches and dizzy spells. The nature of these symptoms are mostly vague and suggestive of other health problems. As a result, many people overlook the possibility that they may suffer from high blood pressure.

There is no one identifiable cause of high blood pressure. It is normally a result of a combination of factors. Weight is one of them. A greater body mass increases the pressure on the walls of the arteries as more blood is needed to supply nutrients and oxygen to the body.

A sedentary lifestyle with physical inactivity is closely linked to high blood pressure. Lack of exercise is usually associated with obesity. Another factor that has been identified to result in high blood pressure is the use of tobacco. Studies conducted on smokers have shown that the majority of smokers have a higher blood pressure than non-smokers. Nicotine levels in the blood were found to be directly proportional to the blood pressure.

The main factors that contribute to high blood pressure are by most accounts things that may be changed. It is important to see your doctor promptly if you believe you may suffer from high blood pressure. Leaving high blood pressure untreated can cause many complications. High blood pressure can leads to strokes, heart attacks and kidney failure.

For those who have mildly high blood pressure, garlic powder supplements, which come in the form of capsules, should be used under the supervision of a doctor. Garlic can thin the blood, similar to aspirin, therefore reducing the risk of blood clots. It can slow down the heart rate and can boost immunity.

It is most important to change to a healthier and more balanced diet that cuts out the majority of your sodium intake. Fresh vegetables and fruits are naturally high sources of potassium which is recognized as reducing high blood pressure. A well balanced diet and a more physically active lifestyle rank as the most effective high blood pressure remedies.

The causes of sleep apnea vary but increased blood pressure is definitely one of them. Another one is carrying to much fat and either can ruin your life insurance coverage so they need to be thought about seriously.
