Tip of the Day: Ways to Lower High Blood Pressure
Generally, there are no real symptoms of high blood pressure (also known as hypertension). This makes this condition a risky one, especially when it is difficult to identify if this is affecting you. Therefore it’s important to see your doctor for a definite diagnosis.
Routine checkups with your doctor is really important, especially if you know any of your close relatives have had a history of hypertension, heart attacks, or strokes.
Hypertension risk factors include obesity, drinking too much alcohol, smoking and family history.
There are several things you can do naturally to lower your blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease, and prevent the likelihood of causing damage to your arteries, heart, brain, and kidneys.

Gaining control of your heart’s health will significantly reduce your risks, and not only will an improved diet and exercise lower high blood pressure, it can help make medications work more efficiently when taken.
