Natural Ways to Lower Your Blood Pressure

Although in most cases hypertension is symptomless, in severe cases it can cause headaches, shortness of breath, dizziness and visual disturbances. Anyone who experiences any of these symptoms should see their GP immediately.

WomanThere are plenty of non-pharmacological measures you can take to lower your blood pressure, or prevent it from becoming too high. The British Hypertensive Society recommends:

  • losing excess weight
  • taking regular dynamic physical exercise (such as a brisk 20-minute walk each day)
  • increasing your daily intake of fruit and vegetables (7 portions a day)
  • limiting your alcohol intake.
