What are the needed vitamins for high blood pressure?

Two that have a major effect on the cardiovascular system are:

Vitamin C will help strengthen the arteries by promoting collagen production. It is also known to be one of the strongest and abundant anti-oxidants found in healthy diets.

Vitamin E is for the heart. Once you have found what is causing your arteries to be blocked or constricted and start rectifying the condition so blood can flow easily then an increase in vitamin E will strengthen your heart to be more powerful.

I considered this again in my life. When I was in my 20’s, I maintained a diet full of fruits and veggies, coupled with daily exercise, I was healthy.
Now, nearing 50, and having recently been diagnosed with HBP, and told to go on a diuretic. Never again. My blood pressure came down some, but there are other underlying factors. I quit the meds and took my life in my own hands. My bp is very high. I always believed that this is the way to go, not pills, which mask the problems and create new ones so you can get more pills. Other than vitamins, I hate pills.

One tooth has been addressed, finishing root canal tomorrow, the other tooth, jammed into my sinus’, it’s coming out the next day. With the help of antibiotics, …

My husband and I like the benefits of hot tubs as well as enjoying the sensation so we look out for them while on vacation. It leaves you feeling relaxed and lightly massaged, and is always fun to do if you go with friends. You could sit and chat all day in them, sipping cool drinks.

Hydrothermal therapy works by manipulating the body’s sense of hot and cold. We are interested in the hot aspect of the therapy. Nerves beneath the surface of our skin are stimulated with the hot water and the water pressure from the jets, relieve stress, aid circulation, sooth aching body parts and help systems that we don’t think about, such as the immune system, digestion, and even hormone production which we could do with as we age.

High blood pressure and alcohol? Does drinking help or cause more problems? An elderly friend of mine once told me that her doctor said she should taking a glass of red wine every day because it was good for her heart.

That delighted her a great deal resulting in her establishing a routine in no time for taking her daily elixir. On the other hand, however, patients have been told by their doctors not to consume alcohol because it is one of the common high blood pressure causes that will not only elevate it but do all sorts of other underlying damage.Are you confused? Why is such widely contradictory advice given to patients. What are we to believe? Most of us would like to choose the former, but fear the latter. A brief look at some facts should do the trick, dispel any fears, or at least help us to get things into perspective.

Have you ever had a colon flush? There are several benefits of a colon cleanse if you have high blood pressure and want to treat it by natural methods.

Presuming that you would also want to clean the colon naturally too, I will discuss briefly the benefits of a colon cleanse and what herbs you can use in combination to do that.

To begin with, our intestines which include the colon is where we absorb the minerals and other nutrients from our food. As food passes through and is processed, some of it may get trapped in pockets of the colon. At this stage the moisture has been removed turning it into a sticky mucous.

Waist processing, transfer of nutrients, metabolic functions, etc, all can be enhanced when the colon is cleansed.

One of the most important benefits of a colon cleanse is that it prepares the body for other organ cleanses such as a liver detox. If you perform this detox before a colon cleanse, you risk major toxins entering right back …

I have 4 more vegetables for you as potassium food sources. They are –

High blood pressure sufferers on potassium wasting diuretics must find the majority of lists, vague sources of information, and useless …

There are 3 main problems that are caused by poor leg circulation.

  1. Swollen legs and ankles
  2. Pain in the legs and calves
  3. Cold and numb feet

Which one do you suffer from? Swollen legs and ankles? Or do you suffer from all three or more?

But drugs are probably the last measure you want to take and especially when they often present their own set of problems.
