We all have "Blood Pressure" - our heart beats, it pumps blood round our body to give it the energy and oxygen it needs. As the blood moves, it pushes against the sides of the blood vessels. The strength of this pushing is known as blood pressure. Blood Pressure doesn't need treatment unless it is too high, in which case it will require medication and some lifestyle changes.

I'm told the following helps in reducing BP immensely. Take a glass of water and immerse 2 or 3 Five Mukhi Rudraksha beads over night. Drink the water first thing in the morning, after removing the beads. Repeat this every day. You can keep your BP in control amazingly. Apart from this, other remedies would be 1) Yoga and meditation 2) Appropriate medication prescribed by the doctor.

The food you eat can significantly affect your blood chemistry and blood pressure. Fortunately, a diet that's good for your heart doesn't have to be agony for your taste buds. Here are some suggestions for making the right food choices for high blood pressure:Do the DASH: Research supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute led to the development of an eating plan that can prevent and help treat high blood pressure.The eating plan, known as the DASH -- named after a key study called Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension -- is low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and total fat and emphasizes fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy foods. It also includes whole-grain products, fish, poultry, and nuts, and it limits meat, sweets, and sugary beverages. This makes for a diet rich in magnesium, potassium, and calcium, as well as protein and fiber -- a winning combination for lowering blood pressure.Alpha-blockers relax certain muscles in the body that can constrict or tighten bl ...more

Blood pressure is only a symptom and the cause for BP has to be diaognised. Blockages, if any, have to be removed.
If health is normal, then BP may be temporary due to stress,tension, etc. If we are prone to BP due to hereditory reasons, then proper medication and diet control will keep BP within permissible limits. BP is a silent havoc-master. Hence doctor has to be consultesd once in 6 months.

First and foremost , consult a doctor for immediate control if u have a high blood pressure . Apart from that these facts with following natural remedies are extremely helpful.

Weight. The greater your body mass, the more pressure there is on your artery walls. That's because more blood is produced to supply oxygen and nutrients to tissues in your body.
Activity level. Lack of physical activity tends to increase heart rate, which forces your heart to work harder with each contraction.
Tobacco use. Chemicals in cigarettes and tobacco can damage artery walls.
Sodium intake. Excessive sodium in the diet can result in fluid retention and high blood pressure, especially in people sensitive to sodium.
Potassium intake. Low potassium can result in elevated sodium in cells, because the two balance one another.
Stress. Stress can raise blood pressure.
Alcohol consumption. Excessive alcohol intake can, over time, increase the risk of heart disease.
Age. The risk of high blood ...more
