Keeping your Blood Pressure Balanced


See if you can add more following to your daily activities:

Do regular, gentle aerobic exercise: reduces stress

Practice deep breathing:  combats tension

Try biofeedback training: teaches you how to relax

Meditate or pray every day:  elicits relaxation response

Eat sufficent potassium (found in fruits and vegetables):  regulates blood and volume

Practice yoga or tai chi:  aids relaxation

Maintain appropriate balance of fatty acids (omega-3’s & 6’s): promotes healthy arteries

Eat Shiitake mushrooms: they lower blood pressure and cholesterol

Change daily habits:

Reduce caffeine: stimulants make your heart work harder

Reduce smoking:  nicotine constricts your arteries

Consume less Sodium:  this reduces blood volume and relieves pressure

Lose some weight if you need to:  excess weight makes the heart work harder
