Effective Low Blood Pressure Home Remedies
What is low blood pressure or hypotension?
Low blood pressure (hypotension) is pressure so low it causes symptoms or signs due to the low flow of blood through the arteries and veins.
When the flow of blood is too low to deliver enough oxygen and nutrients to vital organs such as the brain, heart, and kidney, the organs do not function normally and may be permanently damaged.
Unlike high blood pressure, low blood pressure is defined primarily by signs and symptoms of low blood flow and not by a specific blood pressure number.
Some individuals may have a blood pressure of 90/50 with no symptoms of low blood pressure and therefore do not have low blood pressure. However, others who normally have high blood pressure may develop symptoms of low blood pressure if their blood pressure drops to 100/60.
Here are some natural hyptension remedies to help combat low blood pressure:
- BUTCHER'S BROOM: Supports the circulatory system. Contains important flavonoids (natural substances that strengthen capillary walls) such as rutin. It also contains saponins, which offer a variety of circulatory benefits.
- GINGER, HAWTHORN TOPS, and ROSEMARY: Stimulates and encourages circulation.
- BLACK PEPPER, LEMON, SAGE, or ROSEMARY: Regular massages with this combination of essential oils will stimulate and warm.
Traditional Home Remedies and Natural Solutions
- GARLIC: Take capsules or 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)
- VITAMIN C: Increase intake. Vitamin C, Time-Release allows more efficient use of this vitamin by slowly releasing it into the body. Each tablet is designed with a special coating to release its contents only after reaching the intestine.
*NOTE: If you are pregnant, please consult your doctor before trying any natural remedy.
