It is very common as we advance in age, we are affected by blood pressure. The high blood prssure is very common. It depends upon heredity, using tobacco sedentary life pattern, lack of sleep diabetes and high cholesterol. Many suffer from hyper tension. The negative anxity, failure in life may cause blood pressure. One has to be careful when he is affected by high blood pressure We can use some preventive measures to control high blood pressure. Garlic rduces cholesterol and high blood pressure. It prevents blood from clotting. Beetroot juice, Cocoa, banana and artichokes are very powerful food items to fight high blood pressure. Some wear the copper bangle. They say by wearing this metal the pressure gets reduced.

It seems more and more people will have the high blood pressure when they grow old. Probably it is because they seldom do exercises and have the unhealthy diet. There is no a solution to totally get rid of this problem. But you can still do some exercise and try to have the light diet. Do not take a lot of salty food. Your blood pressure shall remain stable and this problem will not get worse. I love China

Wearing copper bangle reduces blood pressure ? That's very interesting. I have also heard people say wearing pearls controls blood pressure. Well, I have high blood pressure, and I have to be very careful with foods that aggravares blood pressure. The two things I am very careful with are salty foods and coconut, any thing that has coconut in it, fruit flesh or juice.

Lowering the blood pressure is just a matter on how we handle our daily life activities.Stress is really a risk factor that can contribute to hypertension as well so its better to manage the way of living as well.Minimize exposure to heat also eat balance diet and exercise too.

Wow! this a great news thanks for sharing this with us. And here I have some more advises: Use more salt. Experts usually recommend limiting the amount of salt in your diet because sodium can raise blood pressure, sometimes dramatically. For people with low blood pressure, that can be a good thing. But because excess sodium can lead to heart failure, especially in older adults, it's important to check with your doctor before increasing the salt in your diet.Drink more water. Although nearly everyone can benefit from drinking enough water, this is especially true if you have low blood pressure. Fluids increase blood volume and help prevent dehydration, both of which are important in treating hypotension.Wear compression stockings. The same elastic stockings commonly used to relieve the pain and swelling of varicose veins may help reduce the pooling of blood in your legs.

My gf has issues with high blood pressure. It runs in her family. Her brother had a heart attack and luckily was to the hospital before anything bad happened. Now he is doing well. Thank you for this information. I will have to let me gf know about the different options to help fight high blood pressure. I, myself, have never had a problem with it, but know how scary it can be. What is the copper bangle? I haven't heard of this yet.
