Lower Blood Pressure Naturally
How do we lower our blood pressure without pills and what are the dangers of hypertension? In today's world, everything can make your blood pressure rise. Your job, your children, your spouse, driving in traffic, being overweight, waiting in line, worrying about money, stressing over your health, and many other things.
What are the symptoms of high blood pressure? The symptoms are usually silent in the early stages. That is why it is so dangerous because it can do a lot of damage before you even know that you have it. Some symptoms are headaches, bloody nose, and dizziness. Stroke, heart attack or kidney failure can occur if blood pressure is not lowered.
The best way is to have your doctor or health provider monitor your blood pressure or get your own blood pressure monitor to check it at home.

Celery - Eat four stalks of celery a day until your blood pressure goes down. I learned many years ago that eating celery is an excellent way to reduce your blood pressure. It has a natural form of Valium. I have tried this and have recommend it to many people with much success.
Exercise for at least 30 minutes 3 or 4 times a week. Walking is still the best way to exercise without much effort. If you live in an area that has cold winters, you might think about getting a stationary bike or a treadmill so you can exercise all year round. Most health problems occur in the winter when we are not able to get outdoors as much. Another good way is go to the mall where you can walk all around without a weather problem. Â
Ginkgo biloba is an herb that has been used for many years. We take it ourselves to keep our arteries clear and blood flow normal. When our arteries get clogged, blood cannot flow easily and sometimes causes the blood pressure to elevate.
