Home remedies to Control high BP:-1. Bananas are one fruit that people with high blood pressure can eat regularly to control it. Bananas are a rich source of potassium, which lessens the effect of sodium.So, try to eat one or two bananas daily. Along with bananas, you can try dried apricots, raisins, orange juice, spinach, baked sweet potatoes. 2. Eat one or two crushed garlic cloves daily. You can simply crush them with your hands. Crushing garlic cloves creates hydrogen sulfide, a compound that promotes good blood flow, removes gas and reduces the pressure on the heart.If you do not like eating raw garlic or if it causes a burning sensation, then take it along with a cup of milk. You can also mix five or six drops of garlic juice in four teaspoons of water and take it twice a day. Drink plenty of liquids and cut down your fat, salt and sugar intake. go for a morning walk daily at least for 30 minutes. Take a sound sleep and try to avoid anger.

If you are also suffering for high blood pressure then you have to leave pickle, papad and pouring extra salt. Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. Use sufficient amount of ginger, onion, garlic, coriander, lemon, greenchilli, black paper, fenugreek seeds, cinnamon, bay leaves, in food iteams. Complex carbohydrates and fibre should be included in diet. No long gapes and skipping of meals. Never miss out breakfast. Junk food should be avoided. You should avoid fasting and feasting. Chapattis of bran flour (unrefined) is given to diabetes patients and to increase the nutrition value add gram and soyabean flour to it. Take small and frequent meals. You can consult me privately online on Lybrate i" ll give you some more suggestions.

Dear lybrateuser, to perform well in sports you have to have a proper nutritious diet. -have your meals on time -have milk, eggs, fruits, vegetables, fish, chicken, whole grain foods like pasta, bread, chapatti. -to boost your iron levels have green leafy veg like spinach, methi, non veg, jiggery. -also sleep well 7-8 hrs at night -keep yourself well hydrated throughout the day -have a snack like bread & cheese, a banana or biscuit one hour before playling a sport.

What type of medicine I should try when high blood pressure? I am 32 year old guy and some I feel high blood pressure.
Dear, To control & maintan BP normal these are best methods to follow:.• Do physical exercise like jogging, running or brisk walk for atleast 20-30 minutes. • Maintain your cholesterol level to normal & eat least amount of butter, cream or fatty things. • Eat less amount of pickle, salt and fast food as they contain high sodium levels. • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking. • Take less amount of caffine containing coffee, tea or cold drinks because caffine causes increase BP. • Drink 8 to 10 glass of water daily • Take 6 to 8 hrs of sleep daily. Do not take too much stress. • Do long breathing pranayams (Anulom- Vilom, Bhramari) daily for 10 - 15 minutes. It will reduce your stress level in your body. • Eat healthy diet such as green leafy vegetables, fruits. • Take 5 ml of GULAB Jal added in a glass of water daily once a day.

Creat upto 1.4 is considered normal. But you need to be careful about the protein intake as excess might increase the creat inine level. Focus on quality proteins from milk or egg white and measure the salt added to the food. This is very important because there are hidden sources of sodium in our daily foods. Keep a watch on fluid intake as ef is low. Give him small frequent nutrient dense foods throughout the day.

Hi, r you taking any medicine for hypertension under supervision of a physician? avoid, junk food, fried, spicy, irritant junk food, this will raise the cholesterol level to raise bp level. Go for a brisk walk in d morning. Go for meditation to calm down your stress level to ease bp. Take balanced, simple, easily digestible diet on time, maintaining calorie value from 1300-1600. Homoeo medicine: @ rauwalfiaq 10 drops, thrice with little water. @ arjuna q10 drops, thrice with little water. All d best.
