Having Success with Lowering BP

Please post your tips if you have successfully lowered your blood pressure. Right now I am working out, I cut out the salt, I don't drink coffee and I stopped smoking so things are looking pretty amazing!

If you're the type who stresses a lot or worries frequently, I highly, highly recommend something like yoga, Pilates, or mediation classes. They can go a really long way in keeping you calm, which will ultimately keep your blood pressure from spiking, too.

Well done - it seems like you've made some really healthy lifestyle choices. The DASH Diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension)has actually been formulated to help lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and it can also help you lose weight, which is another great way to lower blood pressure. There's a full explanation about how it works here:

Yes i am. My father is high blood pressure patient from last two years. So I told him to do yoga and exercise. I also reduced salt amount in his food.His diet contains full of green vegetables, fresh fruits. Red meat should be avoid.

RE: Having Success with Lowering BP

I have not yet had any success, but I am trying. I plan to start a diet and hopefully an exercise plan.
You say you are cutting down on coffee.. I actually had no idea that coffee affected high blood pressure. I drink it on a daily basis. I will let you know if the dieting helps.

Lowering your body weight will place less stress on your heart, which will help to lower your blood pressure. Coffee affects the heart rhythms if you drink too much, but a cup or two a day shouldn't be too bad. Exercise has long been known to reduce blood pressure - even a 20 minute walk every day should soon produce results. Another thing to remember is to keep yourself well hydrated. Dehydration can cause fluctuations in blood pressure.

RE: Having Success with Lowering BP

Guess I'm going against the grain on this one.
I have suffered from hypertension since my early forties.
The initial medication controlled it for some years before I experienced a big increase and medication was increased to compensate.
Since then it had remained stable, but on the high end of acceptable.
My lifestyle has always been fairly active from an occupation point of view, and I walk most places when I go out.
Other than that I'm afraid I do everthing wrong for a hypertension sufferer. I smoke, enjoy a few beers, and use salt, although I did cut the amount down some years ago.
Some months ago I decided on a lifestyle change, I'm getting to close to the wrong side of wrinkly and working the bars 'till three, four in the morning, with the (social) drinking this used to entail was getting to much.
I decided to go semi-retired, just doing the odd holiday/sickness cover.
With this came a more sedentary lifestyle, and an small increase of weight with it.
I now lead an extemely "laid back" lifestyle.
A couple of weeks ago I visited the doctors on an unrelated matter but as a matter of course she also took my BP.
I couldn't believe it 130/85, the lowest it had been for years. I asked her to re-check which she did, with the same result.
The only explanation I can think of is I have always been a person who has suffered from stress in almost all things, although to look at me you wouldn't think so. Now, with 90% of that stress factor removed my BP seems to have dropped significantly.
I intend to increase my activities with more exercise taken to try and maintain this low level.

RE: Having Success with Lowering BP

I was shocked to find out my blood pressure was elevated a few years ago. I'd never had any problem. I had put on some weight and I find that the second my weight goes up so does my blood pressure. I did not want to go on any meds so I read a lot and tried as many natural methods as I could. I saw a hypnotist and actually was very skeptical as these types of treatments seldom work for me but it was recommended by a friend that swore by it so I gave it a go. Not sure if I just had a very good teacher but with practice I learned to lower my blood pressure several points in just a few minutes. I also take Omega 3's and garlic daily plus I get more exercise. You need a varied plan of attack. Good luck!
