How to Reduce High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)
Hypertension, otherwise known as high blood pressure, is a medical diagnosis of increased blood pressure, that is made when the systolic (the top) and the diastolic (the lower) numbers stay abnormally high for a prolonged period of time, usually for over a month.
In such a case, the cardiovascular system must pump more strongly to push blood to the rest of the body, causing additional strain to the heart muscle and arteries. Hypertension can be caused by
- Excessive drinking alcohol
- Using drugs
- Having a poor diet
Hypertension is usually a hereditary problem, and it may also be aggravated by stress, poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle. Hypertension, especially if left untreated, may cause many complications. It can result in heart attack, stroke and heart failure.
If hypertension left untreated, it can lead to Type 2 diabetes, kidney stones, or coronary artery disease, especially if one has a family history of these ailments. Hypertension has been found to have an effect on the immune system of diabetics.
The best way to treat hypertension is through controlling it with medication, monitoring the blood pressure and performing regular exercise. However, some people with hypertension may find it difficult to control their blood pressure.
This may be because they are overweight or obese, or because they have poor eating habits and consume large amounts of alcohol. A good idea is to talk to your doctor about medication that can be used to treat your hypertension. Your doctor can also advise you on weight loss and better eating habits that will help you control hypertension.

Here’s what you need to know about reversing Hypertension
A very common symptom of reversing hypertension is weight gain. Your body naturally produces more fluid when you become overweight, but if you have been exercising, burning fat, or consuming enough water, your body produces far less water.
When this happens, you’re left with excess fluid in your blood that accumulates in your extremities, legs, ankles, toes, and feet (usually at the ankles and feet). The extra fluid in your body has many health benefits.
It reduces swelling, which can lower the chance of infections and ulcers and help heal cuts and scrapes. If you’ve been putting on weight lately, reverse Hypertension is to blame: Excess fluid makes it harder for your body to remove the excess fluid from your extremities, leaving them prone to bacteria and infection.
There are other health advantages to excess fluid in your body
Extra fluid gives your muscles more room to expand and contract, increasing blood circulation and the amount of nutrients circulating in your blood. This increased blood flow allows you to exercise harder, burn more calories, and build stronger bones.
In addition, the excess fluid causes more urine to be flushed out of your kidneys, which can reduce your chances of kidney failure and urinary tract infections. But the extra fluid isn’t the only benefit to being overweight.
As your body becomes overloaded with too much fluid, it starts storing more of it in your extremities. This excess fluid can cause swelling and even oedema, a condition in which fluid gathers under your skin and constricts the arteries surrounding your body.
Oedema can also lead to serious health risks, including heart disease and high blood pressure. and kidney damage to the bladder and urethra. Oedema is caused by fluid buildup.
To reverse Hypertension, losing weight will help you eliminate excess fluid because the extra fluids are stored in your extremities is a good thing. And it’s a great way to lose weight because you’ll also be removing some of the extra fluids that might be building up in your kidneys.
Reversing Hypertension doesn’t have to mean diet and exercise
If you’ve been exercising regularly, drinking plenty of water, and are healthy, your body will naturally flush the fluid you consume from your system by urinating it out. If you’re overweight, however, exercising and drinking water regularly won’t be enough to help the fluid flow.
If you haven’t been drinking enough water, drink more water to increase the volume of your urine. Water and exercise are both important in reducing fluid retention. In extreme cases, you might want to consider surgery to remove the excess fluid from your body.
- Drinking more water is just the first step. Exercise will give your body additional help in flushing your body of the fluids you don’t need, but you’ll also need to start eating healthier foods and cutting back on unhealthy foods.
- A healthy diet is the second step. Eating foods that have plenty of fibre and are low in calories and fat will help improve your overall health. A healthy diet is basically one which helps to improve or maintain overall good health. A healthy diet provides a body with the right amount of
- Proper calories
A diet which is low on fibre and high on red meats and sweets is not necessarily a good diet. This type of diet often leads to unhealthy weight gain and malnutrition. One should always eat foods that have good amounts of fibre in them.
Foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and nuts contain good amounts of fibre in them. Also, they help to eliminate harmful toxins from the body as well as preventing diseases like
- Heart disease
- Cancer, and more
When it comes to foods, there are many things that you can eat and plenty that you should not eat. You should not consume large amounts of sugar or carbohydrates. Your body needs these nutrients in order to function properly.
Sugars and carbohydrates give your body a quick way to fuel the day and your brain. However, if you are using these nutrients for other purposes and not fueling your body with them then you are not giving it the proper nutrients it needs.
Sugary and carb-rich foods make it harder for the body to burn off calories and fat and causes the system to store excess calories and fat for future use. Eating healthy does not mean that you only eat healthy foods.
Instead, you should eat foods that are in their most natural state. If you eat too much or too little of any food, then your body will lose its ability to process and absorb it. Your body does not want to be constantly exposed to foreign and potentially dangerous chemicals and substances. This is why it is important to eat nutritious foods that contain all the right types of vitamins and minerals.
Finally, exercise will help reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, high cholesterol levels, and kidney problems. When you have diabetes or high blood pressure, getting regular exercise will increase your blood pressure and lower your cholesterol levels.
If you follow these simple tips, you can have a healthier life. Reducing your risk of Hypertension will be easy and will result in lots of extra pounds lost.
