  • Reduce your carb intake since the extra insulin caused by carb consumption actually has a detrimental effect on blood pressure:

    High levels of insulin in your blood will cause your kidneys to hold on to sodium. You've probably heard that sodium is what you're supposed to avoid if you have high blood pressure. But you may not have heard that for the vast majority of people, a low-sodium diet doesn't improve blood pressure at all. The problem is not that they're getting too much sodium in their diet, but rather that because of the insulin in their blood, their kidneys are hanging on to too much sodium, and thus hanging on to too much water, with high blood pressure as a result. You can take diuretics or you can control your insulin levels, lose the extra sodium and the extra water with it.

  • High blood pressure can be treated effectively and controlled with medications and lifestyle modifications. Treating high blood pressure should not be taken lightly however and your doctor’s instructions should be followed meticulously. Attempts at controlling high blood pressure naturally are ill advised. High blood pressure cannot be cured permanently and a reduction of high bloodpressure symptoms should not be taken as a sign to stop treating high blood pressure. Similarly, patients should not attemptself medication or high blood pressure treatment solely with natural treatments for high blood pressure and lifestyle changes. Medical attention is necessary and regular checkups are of great importance especially when detected with the condition. Uncontrolled or poorly treated high blood pressure can cause a variety of complications including heart attacks, kidney failure, strokes and peripheral artery disease among others.
