20 Ways To Lower Blood Pressure
#1 Learn to relax
Clinical studies have shown that
if not the most important and immediate methods
of reducing blood pressure in humans.
such as I use for
Sunset Relaxation Therapy Groups
are a 100% natural way to lower blood pressure and instantly
improve your health in the privacy of your own home.
Relaxation Video Tapes
are a true virtual reality experience and the perfect high blood pressure treatment.
This relaxation video offers blood pressure control without complications.
Just like changing or creating any old or new habits…
it must begin with a conscious effort to make the change happen.
To lower blood pressure it is imperative that you find a way to
make the stress stop controlling you and allow your body to totally relax
for a few minutes every single day!
An easy way to begin is by using some tools to help you.
I suggest purchasing a relaxation video such as a
Sunset Relaxation Video
to begin your new undertaking.
It is one of the best tools I have ever used to help hundreds
of my patients to relax. My clinical studies show an average decrease
in blood pressure of 15 points, with some as high as 50 points,
in only one viewing for those in my Sunset Relaxation Therapy groups.
I have seen many other relaxation videos,
many claiming to be the most relaxing time of my life.
Only to learn that one persons idea of relaxing is actually quite annoying to another.
So I won't point you towards anything I wouldn't use myself.
If perhaps you do find a better relaxation video that works for you…
that you think may help others… please drop me a note at:
and I’ll check it myself and add it to my list
if I'm impressed with the results of my tests.
What I do know is that Sunset Relaxation Videos offer
100% natural way that I have clinically proven to help the body relax
long enough and completely enough to lower blood pressure
and promote the bodies natural relaxation response.
And since Sunset Relaxation Video is 100% natural,
there are no adverse side effects. No harmful drugs to complicate your
system… just a 100% pure pleasure and relaxation that you can get instantly
with very little effort on your part.
19 more ways to lower blood pressure
We are basically lazy creatures.
We would most likely choose to sit if we have no reason to stand.
We walk when we have no reason to run.
We relax when we have no reason to work or worry or be entertained.
The problem is… we always seem to have a reason to work,
or worry or keep our mind occupied with mundane entertainment
and other “negative influences” such as negative people and stressful TV shows.
Here are some more alternatives.
Laughter is a proven form of relaxation
Check out the humor section of your local video rental
Watch one funny movie every night for a week.
Buy a home blood pressure device and use it often to check your blood pressure
before and after watching a funny movie and again in the morning when you wake up.
Compare these results with your pre funny movie statistics to see
how they may be affecting you.
You may be pleasantly surprised!
Go on a news fast
Avoid reading the newspaper or watching the news for a
week and see how
much better you feel without all that extra stress being injected into your mind.
Make a note of it on your personal blood pressure chart, and check
your blood pressure every day for a week to see how well it's working for you.
a joke club on the internet
They'll send you a new joke every day. It will give
you a reason to laugh.
Laughing is very physically and psychologically stress reducing. Test it for yourself.
Laugh. Go ahead laugh our loud. Think of something funny and just laugh.
The convulsions your body makes to laugh are very good for you physically, (honestly)
and the psychological side effects of laughter can make you (and the people around you)
“feel better” and lower everyone's blood pressure instantly.
Movement is a powerful cure for stress and a mandatory
if you want to stay healthy and lower your blood pressure. Find some physical
activity you are willing to do at least once every day… even if it only begins
with learning to do some deep breathing exercises every day until you find a better way.

Avoid lifting heavy objects.
Lifting heavy weights can cause blood pressure to increase dramatically
Eat foods that reduce stress and provide a calming effect
turkey, chicken, seafood, nuts, chocolate and red wine.
Eat foods rich in magnesium to fortify the nervous system.
Whole-wheat bread, raisins and spinach are just a few.
Buy a book (a tool) about eating healthy foods.
Not a FAD diet.
Remember this is a tool to help you lower blood pressure…
not a diet that adds stress to your life.
The first three letters of diet are DIE.
Just start cutting down on the foods that you know are
harming you or making you fat.
Begin a high blood pressure diet
People who are over weight are much more likely to suffer
from high blood pressure.
Reduce your intake of sodium (salt), and carbohydrates
such as potatoes, rice, white bread and sugar.
Over eating can be a stress
related illness and could cause or compound
high blood pressure. Many overweight people tend to over-eat
because of stress. Try our dieting suggestions and try to make them
part of your new high blood pressure diet.
Reducing sodium intake
There are many low salt and no salt substitutes on the
people who are salt sensitive.
Learn more about the salt content of the foods you eat.
Read the labels before you buy them!
Reduce alcohol intake
Consider a plan to cut down on your alcohol consumption.
Heavy alcohol use usually increases blood pressure.
Also avoid stressful situations whenever possible
Don't go looking for stressful situations. Walk
away whenever possible
until you're healthy enough to be fighting about things that could quickly stress you out.
Take a vacation from stressful situations by not allowing them into your life.
Just walk away.
I use the phrase… “It just doesn't matter”.
Avoid negative people, places and things
Or at least limit the amount of time you spend with them.
Remember... An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
If there is someone who seems to be adding undue stress to your life…
try to take a vacation from him or her for a week. Keep an eye on your blood pressure,
and see how much of a difference it makes.
Make a note on your Personal Blood Pressure Chart for future reference.
Tell them about the results if you think they will understand…
ask them for their assistance in your quest for lower blood pressure…
but don't go looking for trouble.
While it is not surprising that fighting with someone
can make your blood pressure
increase, research has shown that virtually any kind of negative feedback can raise
your blood pressure. Stop fighting for a while. You don't have to agree…
just don't take the time and energy to disagree. It could change your life.
Can they really make a difference?
Surround yourself with colors that relax.
Color Therapy does seem to help
some people to relax.
Pick the ones that suit your tastes.
Blue and green have been clinically
proven to help people
relax and reduce blood pressure.
Pink is considered soft and innocent – without stress
Gray is considered peaceful,
quiet - without making any statement
White is clean, pure – and healthy
Brown is Earthy, warm and relaxing
Here is an interesting link to Color
Read… be inspired… let it help you if it can.
I will soon add a Color therapy info / link
Music can be a wonderful source of relaxation
Listen to your favorite relaxation
or while watching a Sunset Relaxation Video.
Put the Sunset Relaxation Video into the VCR and your favorite
relaxation CD or cassette into the stereo…
Adjust the music to compliment the waves on the video and
produce your very own personal, relaxation music video.
Good relaxation music is hard to find. But here is a link to a company that I believe
makes some of the best relaxation music I have ever heard.

Get a massage
Full body, upper body or a foot
are all great ways to reduce stress and blood pressure.
The physical massage will help to reduce stress immediately, while helping the
lymphatic system to remove dead cells, cholesterol, and fat from your system.
A full body massage will assist the lymph system in cleaning up your entire
system. Check the yellow pages for a massage therapist near you.
Visit at least 3 places before deciding where you want to go.
It's important that you feel comfortable with whomever is giving the massage.
Any human touch will normally help
to reduce stress…
including things like holding hands, kissing, and intimacy.
Fortune 500 companies use massage as part of their benefits package.
“The way to a long life and
is to have an aromatic bath and scented massage every day.”
Hippocrates – 400 BC
Seek healthy pleasures
Such as reading, talking with family
or friends, a long distance phone call
to someone you miss, enjoying your pet, pruning a plants,
or a casual walk around the block or around the mall.
Buy a bird feeder and some bird
seed, hang it right outside your window
on a branch or on a tall plant hanger… and make some new feathered friends…
and they'll come and visit you every day.
Feeling helpful and useful (even
to a flock of birds)
will help you feel useful and relaxed.
Use the scents of essential oils
such as jasmine, rose, geranium,
or lavender to help you relax. Find a pleasant aroma that works for you
and use it often.
It can be found in stores that carry
massage oils and lotions
or any stores that carry scented candles etc.
It has been proven that pet owners
normally have less stress and a
lower blood pressure. Pet therapy has been used in hospitals and
nursing homes around the world to help people to relax.
If you don't have a pet… but want one... choose something that is small,
quiet and doesn't need too much care to begin.
Some animals can become more dependent (and stressful)
than you could ever imagine.
Whether watering, transplanting
or pruning plants,
studies have shown plant therapy to be a stress reducing activity.
Plants take peoples' minds off their troubles as they focus
on another living thing that really needs their attention.
While this subject is enough to
give you high blood pressure all by itself,
it is a very sensible alternative. You've been smoking all your life.
It's just now catching up to you… Maybe it's time for a change.
