5 Tricks that Control Your Blood Pressure, Naturally

5 Tricks that Control Your Blood Pressure, Naturally

5 natural ways to control your blood pressure

Blood pressure rises with each heartbeat and falls as your heart relaxes. The normal blood pressure should be less than 120/80 mm hg. An increase or decrease on either end can cause various problems.

Here are some of the natural ways to control your blood pressure.

1. Having a diet low in sodium


In the event of a high blood pressure, curtail the consumption of foods that are rich in sodium. However, research reveals that sometimes it is not just enough to cut down on sodium in your diet. A person suffering from high bp should consume foods rich in minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium as well to keep his/her bp in check.

2. Drink plenty of water and curtail the consumption of alcohol

In case a person suffers from low blood pressure, it is advisable to drink plenty of water as low blood pressure is usually accompanied by bouts of dehydration, and consumption of water can help increase your blood pressure. Also, health drinks, which are rich in electrolytes, help your raise blood pressure. But one should avoid drinks that are high in sugar, and abating your alcohol consumption also helps to quite an extent.

3. Burn extra calories and exercise regularly

Blood pressure usually increases with weight. Being overweight can lead to sleep apnea, which is marked by disruptive breathing while you sleep, which in turn condition can lead to increased blood pressure. Studies have found that weight loss is one of the most effective ways to control high bp. Regular physical activity is also advised to maintain a stable blood pressure.

4. Avoid long, hot showers

The hot water in showers and spas can expand your blood vessels, which can often lead to a drop in blood pressure. A common sign of this would be dizziness and fainting while taking a bath. Therefore, for people suffering from this condition, using warm water rather than hot water is advisable.

5. Completely avoid stress

One of the contributing factors of high blood pressure is chronic stress. Stress tends to affect blood pressure in indirect ways. Many react to stress by overeating, consumption of alcohol and smoking, all of which can increase your blood pressure. Try to know what triggers your stress and take steps to avoid it.

Reasons For High Blood Pressure - उच्च रक्तचाप के कारण

MBBS, M.Sc - Dietitics / Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Reasons For High Blood Pressure - उच्च रक्तचाप के कारण

रक्त, आर्टरीस की दीवारों पर जो बल डालता है, उससे ब्लड प्रेशर कहते हैं। इस बल की शम्मता, दिल के रक्त छोड़ने के प्रेशर और रक्त वाहिकाओं द्वारा लगाए गए प्रतिरोध पे निर्भर करती है। उच्च रक्तचाप, जिसे हाइपरटेंशन भी कहते हैं, तब होता है जब यह बल बहुत अधिक हो जाता है। 
रक्तचाप रीडिंग दो नंबरों में दिया जाता है। पहला, सिस्टल रक्तचाप, जो हृदय अनुबंध के कारण धमनियों में दबाव है। दूसरा डायस्टोलिक रक्तचाप, जो दिल के वापस विस्तार के कारण धमनियों में दबाव है। वयस्कों के लिए सिस्टोलिक दबाव 120 एमएमएचजी के नीचे और डायस्टोलिक दबाव 80 एमएमएचजी के नीचे, सामान्य रक्तचाप होता है। जब आप उत्साहित होते हैं या घबराते हैं, तो रक्त के दबाव में परिवर्तन सामान्य होता है। हालांकि, गतिविधि बंद हो जाने पर, आपका ब्लड प्रेशर आपकी सामान्य बेसलाइन रेंज में वापस आ जाता है। 
रक्तचाप सामान्य रूप से उम्र और शरीर के आकार के साथ बढ़ जाता है। संकीर्ण धमनियां प्रतिरोध को बढ़ाती हैं, जो रक्तचाप में वृद्धि का कारण बनता है। जब सिस्टोलिक दबाव 120 - 139 के बीच हो या डायस्टोलिक दबाव 80 - 89 के बीच हो, तो उस स्थिति को प्रीहाइपरटेंशन। 140/90 एमएमएचजी या उससे ऊपर का रक्तचाप उच्च माना जाता है, यानी के, यदि आपके सिस्टोलिक दबाव 140 से अधिक या डायस्टॉलिक दबाव 90 से ऊपर है। 
 

उच्च रक्तचाप के कारण
1. उम्र:

उम्र के साथ उच्च रक्तचाप का खतरा बढ़ जाता है। जैसे जैसे हम उम्र में बढ़ते है, हमारा रक्तचाप स्वाभाविक रूप से बढ़ जाता है। वास्तव में, 50 से 60 वर्ष से अधिक आयु के लोगों को हृदय रोगों का अधिक खतरा होता है। 
2. जेनेटिक:
कुछ लोग जेनेटिकली उच्च रक्तचाप के लिए अधिक संवेदनशील होते हैं। यह जीन म्यूटेशन या जेनेटिक असामान्यताओं से हो सकता है।
3. व्यायाम की कमी और पुअर डाइट:
उच्च रक्तचाप अक्सर एक लंबे समय तक गतिहीन जीवन शैली के कारण होता है। व्यायाम की कमी, अतिरिक्त आहार के लवण का सेवन मोटापे का कारण बनता है और उच्च रक्तचाप का खतरा बढ़ा देता है। सोडियम संवेदनशीलता के अलावा, उच्च रक्तचाप और हृदय की स्थितियां भी, चीनी और वसा से भरी हुई आहार से जुड़ी हुई है।
4. शराब, ड्रग्स और धूम्रपान:
अत्यधिक मात्रा में शराब पीना या मनोरंजक दवाओं जैसे कोकीन, मेथ आदि का उपयोग करना धमनियों पर तनाव डाल सकता है और हृदय को नुकसान पहुंचा सकता है। धूम्रपान संकीर्ण धमनियों का कारण बनता है, जिसके कारण दिल को अधिक काम करना पड़ता है। यह भी दिल के दौरे और हृदय रोगों के जोखिम को बढ़ा सकता है।
5. हार्मोनल स्थितियां:
एल्दोस्टरोनिस्म, एक एल्दोस्टरोनिस्म, एक हार्मोन विकार जो पोटेशियम और सोडियम स्तरों के बीच असंतुलन पैदा करता है, उच्च रक्तचाप का एक सामान्य कारण है। मेनोपॉज के लिए हार्मोन थेरेपी भी रक्तचाप में वृद्धि का कारण हो सकती है। 
6. स्लीप एप्निया:
स्लीप एपनिया एक ऐसा विकार है जो नींद के दौरान सांस को रोकने या बहुत उथले बनने का कारण बनता है। इससे ऑक्सीजन का स्तर कम हो सकता है और कार्डियोवास्कुलर सिस्टम पर तनाव बढ़ सकता है।
7. गुर्दे की बीमारियां:
उच्च रक्तचाप का सबसे आम कारणों मे से एक गुर्दे की बीमारी है। गुर्दे सामान्य रूप से, सोडियम और पानी को बनाए रख कर और पोटेशियम निकल कर, शरीर के नमक संतुलन को विनियमित करते हैं। इसमें असंतुलन खून की मात्रा बढ़ा सकता है, जिससे उच्च रक्तचाप पैदा हो सकता है।

You must be aware diabetes and hypertension are diseases which can only be controlled by proper medication, diet and exercise, there is cure for both these. Acidity and gas trouble are related conditions, you are aware of some foods increasing acidity as well as gaseousness. It is essential that those foods are avoided. To reduce acidity you should eat at specific intervals, avoid high spicy and oily foods. Also reduce tea/coffee and aerated drinks, practice some aasanas such as pawan muktasan, manduk asana, these should help.

CHOLESTEROL leave is 343.50 as per new reports and she is taking a medicine name crestor rosuvastatin 20 mg.

CHOLESTEROL leave is 343.50 as per new reports and she is taking a medicine name crestor rosuvastatin 20 mg.
Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that occurs naturally in all parts of the body. Your body needs some cholesterol to work properly. But if you have too much in your blood, it can combine with other substances in the blood and stick to the walls of your arteries. This is called plaque. Plaque can narrow your arteries or even block them. High levels of cholesterol in the blood can increase your risk of heart disease. Your cholesterol levels tend to rise as you get older. There are usually no signs or symptoms that you have high blood cholesterol, but it can be detected with a blood test. You are likely to have high cholesterol if members of your family have it, if you are overweight or if you eat a lot of fatty foods. You can lower your cholesterol by exercising more and eating more fruits and vegetables. You also may need to take medicine to lower your cholesterol. High LDL cholesterol put you on a higher risk of atherosclerotic diseases and heart attacks especially if you have other is factors including hypertension diabetes or a history of smoking. I would advise you to increase your medication dose to 40 mg. Once a day also you need to start changing your dietary habits and include a regular physical exercise at least 45 minutes a day 5 days a week into your schedule nonetheless you have to stop taking fatty and junk food good luck.

Dear lybrateuser, chestpain is due to multiple reasons like acidity, heart problems, lung problems, muscular pain. Get yourself thoroughly investigated if not done yet so that the exact cause of pain can be known. Avoid eating spicy, fried & junk food. Do deep breathing 5-10 min every morning. Take antacid tablet 1 tab after every meal, continue if you get some relief.

Dear Lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Reduce salt to minimum. Reduce fats like transfats. Take some good fats like a spoon of desi ghee or butter and a katori of assorted nuts everyday to get protein and good fats. Take medicine but do exercise in moderation. Eat lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits plus eating according to constitution. Take more proteins like milk and curds. If no relief with the group of medicines you are taking your doctor might change the medicines and give you a trial with another group of medicine.
