Hypertension remedies …..
Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a condition caused when constricted arteries decrease blood flow and makes it more difficult for the heart to pump blood and nutrients throughout the body.
In most cases, hypertension has no known cause, though it may be triggered by factors such as obesity, excess alcohol consumption, high sodium intake or stress. In about 5% of cases, high blood pressure is caused by kidney or liver diseases or as a side effect of certain medications.
Blood pressure is measured by taking the pressure in the arteries when the heart contracts (systolic blood pressure) and the pressure in the arteries when the heart relaxes (diastolic blood pressure).
Normal blood pressure is below 120 (systolic)/80 (diastolic). Blood pressure between 120/80 and 139/89 is considered borderline high (known as pre-hypertension), and high blood pressure is any measure greater than 140/90.
Initially, there are almost no hypertension symptoms. In some cases, symptoms such as dizziness, headaches or blurred vision may signal hypertension, but usually it is only discovered when blood pressure is measured. Over time, hypertension can cause the heart and kidneys to become damaged.
People with high blood pressure are also at higher risk for developing hardening of the arteries, eye damage and stroke. Hypertension remedies include medications, diet modifications and lifestyle changes.
ACE inhibitors are medications used to regulate blood pressure by blocking enzymes that take part in chemical reactions that constrict blood vessels. Beta-blockers are used to slow heart rate and lessen the impact on constricted arteries.
Diuretics are medications used to remove salt and fluid from the body in order to reduce swelling which can put pressure on blood vessels. Calcium channel blockers and alpha-blockers are other hypertension medications that prevent the contraction of blood vessels by preventing parts of the chemical reactions that control this process.
Changes in diet and lifestyle are also effective hypertension remedies. Lowering salt intake can lower blood pressure in sodium sensitive people. Decreasing caffeine intake is effective as well, since caffeine constricts blood vessels.
Lowering fat intake can help people with hypertension lose weight, which is linked to a decrease in blood pressure.
Relaxation techniques, such as yoga and meditation can reduce stress-related hypertension. People with stress-related hypertension can also learn stress management techniques that may help lower blood pressure.
A variety of nutritional and herbal supplements have been found useful for treating hypertension as well. In particular, garlic, hawthorn, and coenzyme Q-10 supplements are widely used by herbalists to treat hypertension.
Antioxidant vitamins, the minerals calcium, magnesium and potassium, and omega-3 fatty acids are also linked to lower blood pressure. These nutrients should be abundant in a healthy diet, especially for people with hypertension.
