  • you can reduce the blood pressure by a. mediction b. meditation. medication everybody tells about it. let me tell u about meditation meditation need to be purpose ful. Couple it with the breathing exercise. we call it as PRANAYAMA in sanskrit. controll your breath. blood preasure increases/ decreased because of your diet, mental stability and your environment. have he healthy food that just satisfy your half hunger and sit for breathing exercise. inhale for 10 continous seconds, hold it for 40 seconds and exhale for 10 seconds. while inhaling in hale through the left of your nose and while exhale, exhale through right of the nose. and in the next time do it the other way round. inhale through right and exhale through left. practice this for 15 continous times in morning before taking food, afternoon after taking food and in the night before going to sleep after taking food. While taking food the main crieteria is that you have to chew the food as if the digestion takes place only in mouth. This continious practice will reduce blood preassure. Pl. Note. when ever there is an emotional feeling do not forget to do PRANAYAMA for at least two times. it wil immediately reduce blood preasure. no medication is required no diet. Also remember to take food which will at maximum satisfy 3/4th of your hunger. never take for full stomach.
  • Increases in blood pressure are caused by build up of fat in the blood vessels. So diet and exercise should do the trick. If that does not fully solve your problem, consult your doctor. He may perscribe you with medication.
  • As mentioned in other answers, diet and exercise are the main tools for decreasing blood pressure; meditation and stress reduction are also very helpful. Another primary factor is your weight. If you are overweight or obese, losing weight will also decrease your blood pressure.
  • being on the atkins diet absolutley not a fad diet! my dad has lost over 120 pounds! and lowered his blood pressur signifacantly!
  • I never had high blood pressure, then for a 3 year period it suddenly started rising. I am not overweight, overly stressed, and semi lead a healthy life., & young... Doctors automatically put me on pills a year later. this helped some, but didn't correct problem. 3yrs. later after changing to a Cardiovascular Specialist (Wisconsin Heart Association - Madison). They knew right where to take this! I Had a chemical stress test and Renal Artery Test. found out , I had a kidney blockage in Renal canals. What caused it? Research has not done enough of this, sometimes it is not found until they do an autopsy, if they have cause to look for that. They think it is from birth, and takes many years for the fiber-muscular tissues to grow together and flap around to inter twine and cause the kidneys to slowly dis funtion, thus: Hypertion Hope this helps to tell your doctor of this, if pills are not the answer. I have not been on pills now for 2 yrs., I have gained some weight (136# @ 5'3"ft.) and my pressure has been normal or below !
  • Another way to lower blood pressure is to exercise, I use a treadmill daily for 1/2 hour and it works for me.
  • I am on a low-sodium diet for another medical reason, but have lost many pounds and have a low blood pressure. Several friends and relatives have gone to the low-sodium diet to lose weight, and have found that their blood pressure has decreased also. Two of them have been relieved of their high blood pressure medications since being on the low sodium diet. The low sodium diet promotes good eating habits, and weight loss is a bonus! It's a good start. See your doctor for a good low-so plan.
  • What DID HER DOCTOR TELL HER???? We cannot in good conscience (I will speak for myself) give medical advice, especially on medical issues like that which are potentially deadly. If her doctor did not give her medication, he apparently doesn't feel it is high enough. But he should have given her some guidance. If he did not have her call his/her office and ask for some or have her go in for another appointment. To say anything else to you on this would be negligent of me, even though I know alot about medicine, especially heart and vascular issues. Get a doctors opinion and advice. An online Q & A forum is not appropriate for this kind of question unless it is run by or answered by doctors. Even then they qualify their answers and tell you to see your own doctor in person.
  • There are many ways to lower your blood pressure and what is most effective depends on the cause of your high blood pressure. Obviously, medication is the easiest answer but I want to offer something different. Medication is NOT really the easy answer because it means lots of expense, unpleasant side effects and the possibility of being dependent on them for life. My alternative is called slow breathing. Breathing slowly and in a specific pattern is clinically proven to lower blood pressure. It's as well-proven as drugs are. There is an expensive device for doing this that has been heavily advertised. But there is also a very expensive and easy to use alternative called slow breathing with music that is extremely effective on almost all types of high blood pressure using just 15 minutes a day. At the website listed below you can get a complete explanation as well as free detailed instructions and an online demo: http://www.control-your-blood-pressure.com
  • I would say watch salt and salty foods - don't add salt at the table. Avoid lots of red meats, junk foods and eat more fruits and vegetables. Also, Chinese medicine indicates there is a connection between the kidneys and high blood pressure, so you would want to drink plenty of water and avoid hard liquor and lots of coffee.
  • Definitely watch Salty foods. avoid salt at all costs. also, make sure you have plenty to drink (stay hydrated) and have the proper amount of meals for the day.
  • Maintain a low-fat, low calorie diet. Include plenty of fruits and vegetables every day. Cut down on sodium. Many processed foods contain high amounts of sodium. Read the labels before buying. Keep your weight within a healthy range, and exercise for at least 30 minutes, 5 days a week. If you smoke, quit smoking and drink alcoholic beverages in moderatation. In addition, taking nutritional supplements, like Blood Pressure Matrix, is a good way to aid the body’s natural functions for regulating normal blood pressure. http://www.newvitality.com/shop/blood-pressure-matrix.aspx
  • Stop smoking if you are a smoker, have gentle exercise, keep yourself hydrated with water, meditate if you are stressed, take your medication that the doctor prescribed for you.
  • Diet, excercise, and a regular, daily dose of comedy!
  • Stop answering tough AB questions! :D
  • Laugh! Come on, Laugh! NOW!!
  • lower your salt intake and take a brisk walk every day
  • Get a companion pet. Seriously, I've heard it can help.
  • There are pills for high blood pressure. I have low blood pressure. The weather causes my low blood pressure. I'd say if you get some sun then you would be fine. Just go to a doctor for some medicine recommendation.
  • Lose weight, avoid salt, and exercise.
  • Weight loss, exercise, and a sensible diet. I also sit out on the swing at night for relaxztion, and pet my dog often - I think both of those help.
  • marijuana
  • Does it need to be decreased? In general, eat healthy and limit salt. Most of the time people will need a medication for this condition.
  • Take fish oils, or flax seed oil capsules..and reduce salt intake
  • Eat alot vegetables and fruit all day.
  • Avoid taking more salt, oil.
  • Slash your wrists.
  • There are a hundred things you can do but you might be able to figure out what you're doing wrong. Decrease the sodium and processed foods, get off your butt and exercise, stop smoking, get a less stressful job or find a way to make yours better, find a stress reliever like meditation, etc. You DON'T need drugs...it's all natural.
