Managing Hypertension the Natural Way.
If you suddenly find yourself battling with headaches or nosebleeds, blurred vision, chest pain, difficulty breathing, blood in the urine, irregular heartbeat, confusion, or pounding in the neck, chest, or ears you could be suffering from hypertension. This could in turn be the cause for more fatal complications as heart attack, heart failure, sudden death, stroke, and kidney failure. Therefore the doctors try to bring down the blood pressure.
They work towards bringing down the systolic blood pressure to 140 mm Hg or less and the diastolic blood pressure below 90 mm Hg. The recommended systolic blood pressure for diabetic patients is 130 mm Hg and a diastolic pressure below 85 mm Hg.
Treatment for high blood pressure involves lifestyle modification and drug therapy (or pharmacological therapy).

Some patients are able to control their BP with better lifestyle changes. This also in many cases reduces the pharmacological medication. The following aspects must be discussed with your naturopathic Doctor to control your BP.
Should Losing Weight be your concern?
You can check the BMI Body Mass Index for whether you are in suitable weight range. If your BMI falls within 18.5 to24.9, then your weight is considered normal. If the BMI falls in the range of 25.0 to 29.9 then you are in the overweight category. If your BMI is above 30.0 then you fall in the obese category.
The naturopathic doctor will devise the appropriate diet plan for your condition.
Do you need to be more physically active?

Taking a brisk walk for 20 to 30 minutes each day is recommended. You can ask your doctor to create an exercise program for you.
