Lifestyle first : start with restricting dietary sodium intake to 2,000 mg per day. Next, begin a daily fitness program of aerobic exercise minimum 30-40 min daily. If these measures don't stabilize BP then time to see a doctor about it. ...Read more

I am a 20 year old female and my blood pressure was 135/125 when i checked it yesterday. Is there anything i can do at home to help bring it down?

BP 135/125: Probably an incorrect reading. Try another BP cuff or ask a friend who has one to check you. If your second number is above 85 you should call your doctor for an exam. ...Read more

Is it true that if u take a teaspoon of vinegar a day it would bring your blood pressure down?

Is it true that if u take a teaspoon of vinegar a day it would bring your blood pressure down?

Best foods to lower down hypertension or high blood pressure. Thanks?

Best foods to lower down hypertension or high blood pressure. Thanks?

Simple is better: Fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grain, and less salt. The more processed the food is, the more likelihood is that it will contain salt and other preservatives that may adversely affect bp. Also, increasing exercise and weight loss help. If there is any question of sleep apnea, get tested. That, too, can increase bp. ...Read more
