Is there a natural way to lower my blood pressure?

1 MIN READ • 24th September 2021
Health and Wellbeing by Health and Wellbeing

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).
