HERBS THAT help lower high blood pressure/hypertension

About High Blood Pressure and Herbs
Drug intervention need not be the only option to help lower your moderately high blood pressure. Herbal remedies such as garlic, arjuna, sarpagandha, and olive can help too.

Hypertension or high blood pressure is no doubt a lifestyle disorder except for minority cases in which the cause could be renal artery stenosis, chronic kidney disease, thyroid disorder, sleep disorders or coarctation of the aorta. These minority cases (less than 1%) form the secondary hypertension whereas the common form of high blood pressure is known as primary hypertension. Primary hypertension or the common high blood pressure may not be deadly in itself but it raises the risk of heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease that is the leading cause of death worldwide.

High Blood Pressure - The pressure or tension exerted by the blood on the arteries and the venous blood vessels is called blood pressure. Normal blood pressure is less than 120/80 mmHg, where 120 is the systolic blood pressure (SBP) and 80 is the diastolic blood pressure (DBP).

High blood pressure occurs when the blood is pumped by the heart through the system that is abnormally fast and powerful. This sustained greater than normal force and pressure can cause damage to the arteries.

Prehypertension or Borderline Hypertension is when the systolic pressure is between 120 to 139 and/or the diastolic pressure is between 80 and 89.

Stage 1 hypertension is when the systolic pressure is between 140 to 159 and/or the diastolic pressure is between 90 and 99.

Stage 2 hypertension is when the systolic blood pressure is around 160 to 179 and the diastolic blood pressure is from 100 till about 120.

Stage 3 Hypertension is increased blood pressure when the systolic blood pressure is more than 180 and the diastolic blood pressure is more than 120.

This ‘silent killer’ disease is linked with 70 percent of strokes and 60.5 percent of kidney disease. Statistics show that as many as one billion people worldwide are affected by high blood pressure and the number is growing by the day. Many health organizations including the American Society of Hypertension, Asian Hypertension League, World Stroke Organization, International Diabetes Federation, and others have endorsed the global call to action for recognizing high blood pressure as a major public health priority.

Fortunately, in most instances drug intervention may not be necessarily required, just a change in lifestyle can be sufficient to control or prevent mild or moderately high blood pressure. Stat shedding those extra pounds if you are overweight, include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, restrict salty food, give up tobacco, and exercise regularly – these measures can help keep your blood pressure at target levels.

An additional effort through herbal remedies can not only help you lower high blood pressure but also reduce stress and enhance metabolic health.

Among the many herbs that can serve the purpose, four herbs namely garlic, arjuna, sarpagandha, and olive can help to reduce hypertension, It must, however, be noted that none of these herbs are substitute for medical attention.

Ezekiel 47:12. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.
