High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a major chronic disease that affect many adults and unfortunately some adolescents but it doesn't have to happen. This disease can lead to organ damage which in turn can cause cardiovascular diseases, blindness, or even stroke. If you are affected with this disease it is not the end of the road because you have the power to reverse it without going to the Pharmacy. Start by exercising regularly, reduce and manage your stress level.

Lower your sodium intake, use sea salt instead of the regular table salt, eat a lot of fruits and vegetable which is rich in potassium and magnesium.
Vegetables that are good to reduce high blood pressure are those that are high in nitrate lettuce, spinach and beetroot.

All these vegetables can be juiced and having 8 ounces each day will give quick results. Remember that beetroot is sweet but the sugar it produce is good sugar and will not affect you if you are diabetic. You can also add granny smith apple, carrot or ginger to your drink to change the flavor.

Why do I always feel better after I have read one of Trevor's posts? Why is this smart and knowledgeable man not a Doctor? T-MAN- did you miss your calling?

Connie said...

Thanks, Trevor. I haven't bought my juicer yet but I plan to get one. As always, you have given me some great advice!

Victoria said...

Thanks Trevor:
I was shopping around for a good juicer, but am afraid that I won't have the time to use it during the week. I am swamped, but do really need to try these remedies since I am on meds for HBP.

Okay, I surrender. Trevor - Help. My bp is fine, but my cholesterol is ... not good. I don't eat fried foods, I run and lift weights. I take Red Yeast Rice, Policosnal, and Flax Oil caps. Is there anything else?
