In ‘natural ways to to lower blood pressure fast without medication’ you’ll discover 3 natural tips on how to address some of the underlying risk factors that can cause the clinical condition known as ‘high blood pressure’ or ‘hypertension.’

But first, let’s go over some fundamentals so that you’ll have a better understanding of how to decrease your blood pressure naturally…



What is High Blood Pressure?



It is estimated that 1 in 3 people have high blood pressure (hypertension), many of them unaware that they have it because it does not always have recognisable symptoms. This, coupled with the fact that it can lead to sometimes fatal outcomes, is why it is often referred to as the ‘silent killer.’

Blood pressure is the the force exerted by the blood against the walls of our arteries as it gets pumped by the heart around our body.

As we get on with our daily routines it’s natural that this pressure rises as we walk, do work, get excited, become stressed and so on. But it will then reduce back down to a healthy level as we rest and cease exerting ourselves.

However, when blood pressure remains at consistently high levels, even when at rest, then this is the condition called ‘high blood pressure’ or ‘hypertension.’

The problem with this is that the heart has to work very much harder which can lead to organ damage and other serious health issues such as:-

heart attack
heart failure
irregular heart beat
kidney damage
accelerated hardening of the arteries
sight impairment

So you can clearly see why, if you have high blood pressure, it’s vital to reduce it to a healthy level and maintain it there.



Diagnosing High Blood Pressure

Hypertension is diagnosed by a medical professional who measures your blood pressure as shown in the video opposite. Two distinct pressures are recorded:-

systolic (arterial pressure when the heart is contracted to pump the blood)
diastolic (arterial pressure when the heart is relaxed to fill with blood ready for the next contraction)

It is usually written in the form ‘systolic reading/diastolic reading’, for example 140/80, and spoken as ‘one hundred and forty over eighty.’ The readings are in mm Hg (millimetres of mercury).

The following table shows the different categories of hypertension with their associated systolic and diastolic ranges.




140 to 159

90 to 99

Stage 1 Hypertension
160 +

100 +

Stage 2 Hypertension
Note that If your reading falls within 2 categories, for example 122/91, then your category is the highest of the two. In this example this would put you into Stage 1 Hypertension.

When diagnosed with hypertension your doctor will wish to monitor your blood pressure on a regular basis, the frequency based on the severity of your case.

But you can also monitor progress at home, in between visits to the clinic, using a monitor you can purchase from the pharmacy or online. Many folks do this because it gives them a greater sense of security.

If you do it at home your doctor will advise how often you need to check your levels. You will need to keep a record of the readings to show to your physician on your next visit.

And for folks who suffer from ‘white coat syndrome‘ (where your blood pressure rises inexplicably when the doctor or nurse takes the test so it’s difficult to get true readings) a home testing kit is particularly useful…
