High Blood Pressure is typically caused by stress, nutrient deficiencies and lack of hydration at a deeper level. High Blood Pressure can be combated by leading a ketogenic lifestyle, introducing healthy fats into your diet, and systematically reducing your stress levels.
If not treated with the right kind of nutrition (low carb high fat, LCHF), High Blood Pressure may lead to blood thickening, thus cause the heart to work harder in order to get the blood flow at acceptable levels. Also, strokes are typically caused by blood thickening.
Water hydrates at a surface level, add a few drops of organic lemon and it will penetrate the cells at a deeper level and provide more hydration for the cells.
Daily regime must consist of meals that do NOT contain industrially produced fats (margarine, canola oil, vegetable oil), refined sugars, and any chemicals (dyes, flavoring, preservatives, etc.). We suggest that you consume as much as possible pesticide-free non-GMO local grown vegetables.
Have MORE antioxidants, vitamins, minerals which help with brain function. Below is a few more dietary suggestions to combat issues resulting from High Blood Pressure.
NATURAL BLOOD THINNERS
Turmeric (curcumin, the active ingredient, is anti-inflammatory and blood thinning)
Ginger (also anti-inflammatory, natural occurring acid salicylate which is a potent blood thinner)
Vitamin E (400-800 IU per day, also found in almonds and sunflower oil, will aid in SKIN health)
Garlic (natural anti-biotic and antithrombotic that reduces blood clot formation, also boosts the immune system.)
Cinnamon (toxic if not organic as it [just like stevia] absorbs toxins and pesticides which is why it is such an amazing plant as it absorbs toxins in the body and flushes them out, thus best had organic. It contains coumarin, powerful for blood-thinning.)
Grape Seed Extract (Contains antioxidants to protect blood vessels and prevent high blood pressure as well as aiding overall blood health)
Avoid trans fats or saturated fats. Instead: Monounsaturated Fats and Polyunsaturated Fats (Olive oil, Olives, Tree nuts, Avocados, Omega 3s)
Eat Soluble Fiber
Avoid refined sugars and grains
The number one cause of high blood pressure is stress. Stress creates nutrition deficiency just by existing. Whatever stresses you have from the past memories or so forth may be a part of the health issues.
Some meditation techniques can help your blood pressure decrease. It may take only 5 minutes every few hours, quick and just to calm the mind and aid any stresses you might be having.
