Is there a natural way to lower my blood pressure?

1 MIN READ • 3rd June 2018

Naturopath Gemma Hurditch, lecturer at CNM College of Naturopathic Medicine says:

Don’t smoke, and reserve alcohol for special occasions, in very limited amounts. If you are overweight, even a slight weight loss (5lbs) can significantly reduce your blood pressure.
It’s essential to tackle what’s causing you any stress. Physical activity lowers blood pressure so get out into the fresh air and daylight for some exercise! Start slowly if you are unused to it.
Opt for a cook from scratch diet loaded with fresh vegetables, whole grains and fruits, legumes and nuts (all organic if possible). Fats are essential for health but be picky! Stick to lean and unprocessed meats. Good oils, such as olive oil or flaxseed oil should be added at the dinner table, not cooked with. When you must cook with fats, try a little coconut oil.  Eliminate white flour/sugar and processed foods. Use minimal salt, and from only plant based sources or Himalayan Crystal Salt.
