Discover some effective natural hypertension remedies for dealing with your high blood pressure!

Almost one in three adults in the U.S. has hypertension (high blood pressure), but since sometimes there are no symptoms, almost a third of them don?t even know they have it.

So no matter how healthy you feel...always have your blood pressure checked often.

I have suffered from? diagnosed? hypertension for over ten years now...probably had it many years before I was diagnosed. I have the kind that can be perfectly normal one minute and sky rocket up the next.

This year through watching what I eat (most of the time) and using some of these herbal and hypertension home remedies listed below...I have finally got my blood pressure under control and am off my Altace (Ramipril).

I still check my blood pressure often and monitor it closely....but so far so good!

Traditional Home Remedies and Natural Solutions

    garlic used to lower blood pressure
  • GARLIC: The best home remedy you can take for high and low pressure alike! Can take in capsules or just eat plenty of fresh raw garlic, which acts as a tonic to the circulatory system and maintains its health. Tends to normalize blood pressure to the level it should be. (Note: Do not take if you are on blood thinning medication without consulting your doctor first. Garlic is a natural blood thinner)
  • CONCORD GRAPE JUICE: Studies show drinking the juice regularly may help lower blood pressure.
  • Berries: Berries are full of antioxidants and other phytonutrients that make them a wise choice.
  • AVOID SALT: This is essential for lowering blood pressure. Read the labels: Many foods contain sodium. Look for "salt," "sodium," "soda," or "Na" on the label. Also avoid MSG (monosodium glutamate), baking soda, saccharin, soy sauce, diet soft drinks, preservatives, and meat tenderizers. (I struggle with this one....I love my salt!....I use a salt substitute most of the time...but there are times I just have to have my salt).
