bloodpressurepump 220x137 Home Remedies for High Blood Pressure 6 Natural Solutions

High blood pressure is experienced by nearly 68 million adults in the United States alone — that’s 1 in 3 adults. Often accompanied by excess weight, high blood pressure is a major risk factor for stroke, congestive heart failure, kidney disease, and the leading killer — heart disease. If you are someone who has high blood pressure, the mainstream medical industry wants nothing more than your eternal business, buying their pharmaceutical drugs that never really cure anything. But instead of doing that, try utilizing one of these home remedies for high blood pressure.

Natural Alternative – Home Remedies for High Blood Pressure

Drink Coconut Water to Combat High Blood Pressure

Coconut water is a tasty and nutritious beverage which has also been shown to be effective at lowering blood pressure. In one study where authors investigated the effects of coconut water when regularly consumed, they found that coconut water was able to significantly lower blood pressure in 71 percent of the study participants. This refreshing beverage has also been shown to rise above sports drinks in hydration while causing not nearly as many stomach pains. This is only one of many coconut water benefits.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Effectively helping thousands of health ailments such as strep throat and acid reflux, the benefits of apple cider vinegar also extend to treating high blood pressure. Just a few tablespoons a day for one month could have a dramatic impact. I have seen people’s blood pressure go from 150/80 to 130/80 in just a month while taking 2 tablespoons of ACV a day. Many others have experienced the same scenario, and blood pressure medications are often chucked. This is one of many home remedies for high blood pressure that could help you too.

Vitamin D

Research points out that vitamin D can be an effective solution to lower blood pressure, promote vascular health by helping blood vessels, and contribute to healthy arteries. While helping to lower blood pressure, this powerful cancer fighter can also protect you from the flu 800% better than any flu vaccine.

Aloe Vera, Hibiscus Tea, Cayenne Pepper

To add to the home remedies for high blood pressure, aloe, cayenne pepper, honey, and tea are all fabulous for helping with a whole host of health problems. They are often used in combination to treat anything from strep throat to lowering insulin levels to boosting overall health. Not surprisingly, some individuals have also found this combination to effectively lower blood pressure.

An edited statement from EarthClinic:

“One year ago I started having headaches and my Dr. found that I had high blood pressure – 187/100. Yikes. I was told I needed to take meds for life. I refused to believe that and have been searching for a natural cure since then. I have found it drinking fresh Aloe every morning. I take a medium leaf wash and remove thorns, put it in the blender, with one lemon and one tablespoon raw honey. Strain and drink on an empty stomach after one month I am off meds and my readings are 109/65! I also drink one cup of hibiscus tea a day and eat cayenne pepper with meals. My friend also tried this and she is a diabetic her blood sugar is now an average 80, and off insulin.”

In addition to all of these solutions, living an overall healthy lifestyle with some exercise will also help greatly. This means avoiding fructose, which has been shown to up the risk of having blood pressure levels of 160/100 mmHg by 77 percent with the consumption of 74 grams (2.5 sugary drinks). Maintaining a healthy weight while reducing fructose intake to no more than 20g per day are excellent preventative measures. Although there are many home remedies for high blood pressure, start with these and measure the results!

    this is so lame

  • Ashley

    I used to King of Bitters http://www.regenerativenutrition.com/king-of-bitt… when I had high blood pressure. I swear by it.

  • David

    If you are on BP meds,and you try eating better,taking megnesium,when do you stop taking meds to see if your bp is were it should be?

    • Anonymous

      i really dont care what you think dude like get a life.

  • Herman the frog&#039

    Celery and celery juice lowers blood pressure. I juice everyday with a Vita Mix which is worth every penny.

  • Herman the frog

    All you guys missed the boat. Excercising EVERY day for at least 30 minutes will significantly help lowering BP.

    There is also a device that was confirmed helpful by the University of Illinios in Chicago for meditative repetetive breathing using musical tones called Resperate.

    • roberta

      No not alway……, ive been a nurse for 13 yrs, if you have genetic hypertension, simple excercise may not do it, being over weight, doesnt mean all will have it either, thin people have hypertension, you just need to find out what works for that individual.

  • Stardust on the Sage

    I couldn't agree more about the fact that meats and cholesterol are NOT the problem, in fact, they are the answer to high BP. But don't expect people to believe it, no matter how many links you provide or how much evidence. Until a god-like doctor says so, it's simply not ever going to make sense to people who don't WANT it to make sense. i.e., vegetarians, vegans, pescatarians, etc.

    Nevertheless, I provide web site information and links:

    Read the book Know Your Fats by Mary Enig, Ph.D.

    Following a nutrient dense way of eating is the best thing for proper health, and blood pressure is an indicator of overall health, determined most of the time by nutrition. Proper nutrition is nutrient dense. No ifs ands or buts.

    • johnny

      grass fed beef is good for you regardless, you'll lose weight and lower blood pressure, must be organic grass fed though. the bs saturated fat myth the biggest con job perpetrated on the public in 60 years, that and low fat / no fat diet , too much refined sugar and carbs is whats doing it, go raw, go basic whole foods, water, exercise and sleep you will be healthier no doubt.

  • Eyes of Horus

    One of the major reasons there is so much high blood pressure is because of the blood pressure being taken incorrectly in the first place. In order to take the BP correctly the patient must be totally relaxed, that means no talking and no tension in any way, from 5 to 15 minutes before the first reading. Then, there must be a wait of several minutes before the 2nd reading. And a few minute wait before the 3rd reading. Then, all 3 are averaged together. This way the pressure is closer to what it actually is. This is never done. You can also blame the drug companies. They changed 120/80 to "pre-hypertension" — anything to sell drugs. If you want to get the best knowledge of one's blood pressure wearing the portable cuff is the only way to do it. That is rarely done. The fact of the matter is that when the sphygmomanometer was invented the idea that 120/80 was the standard came from testing the blood pressure of 8 people off the streets of New York. That is the standard that is still used. There is no such thing as normal blood pressure.

    • mj

      So true!

    • Vb

      Yes very true and informative. I will try ur suggestion..Thanks

    • http://twitter.com/sgt3 @sgt3

      My findings are exactly like yours!!!

  • J.

    Why isn't magnesium mentioned?

    • Jeremy

      Agreed, magnesium is extremely critical for the heart and circulatory system. It is so critical in fact that many times a deficiency won't show up in a blood test because your body is pulling all of the magnesium it can get from your cells and pushing it to your circulatory system. Magnesium is also necessary for proper absorbtion of many other nutrients (calcium, vit C, etc.) A nice 20-30 minute salt bath with magnesium flakes 2 -3 times a week can work wonders for blood pressure, circulation, and overall stress reduction.

  • Ella

    Cristina is right and so are others. Most of the carbs today are made of genetically modified grains. Our bodies do not know what to do with GMO's. Sugar has been GMOed.

    We pay for water to be delivered to our homes. This water should be the best of all waters. But what do we get. Unless we add filters on our water lines, the water that we pay for is not good for our bodies. Most cities still add fluoride to our water.

    Most prepackaged products have fructose added to them. Even chips now have fructose. Metals have been added to prepackaged products also.

    My personal opinion is, since CHEMTRAILS started in about 1997, I have watched the health of the people go down. Cancer is at an all time high. I have 2 vegetarian friends with pancreatic cancer and have been told there is nothing that can be done. I have watched at least 4 people, close to me, die of brain cancer. Alzheimer is also at a all time high.

    Taking sample of CHEMTRAILS is second hand information. We the people need to hold the companies who make the product for CHEMTRAILS responsible, by demanding testing of their products.

    • graham watson

      I agree with you re chemtrails, but is is impossible to get people to pay attention to what is happening in the sky above them, in fact by now it would be a safe bet to assume that every child who has been in the education system would believe this spraying is actually a normal consequence of jet travel, and would argue that point with those of us who know that it is not, they would never have heard of welsbach seeding as advocated by Edward Teller the father of the H bomb to change the albedo of earth and allow further contamination of the atmosphere by corporations, we now even have scientists talking about geoengineering to achieve just what they have been doing for 15 years or more

      • Angela

        I am just finding about the chemtrails so I am constantly watching the sky

    • Anonymous

      AGREE!!

    • Anne

      agree 100% bravo

  • Brian

    In 21 years of practicing serious massage therapy I have never met anyone with high blood pressure who drank enough water. Straight AMA lymphology recommends half of your body weight of pounds in ounces every day. At first a person urinates like crazy for 10 days until the swamp clears. Veins and arteries weren't meant to circulate sludge. Rat poison blood thinners are not the answer. Young adults are over 70% fluid statistically. Elderly are 55%. Chronic dehydration is rampant in our society. Many of aging's aches and pains can be taken care of through rehydration.

  • Leland Raven

    Fresh beet juice is also very good for high blood pressure.

    • johnny

      yeah i agree with beet juice i took that and pomergrante juice and mine went down in days

  • Anonymous

    this stuff is bunkum …….were's the evidence?

  • SAM

    My blood pressure normalized after I started eating meat again and ate less carbs. I was not overweight but i dropped few pounds. I was on metoprolol 50mg a day but after i switched diet and increased meat and eggs intake and reduced carbs and sugars, my BP is normal now without meds.

    Carbs are a major cause of high BP.

  • jimmy legaro

    It's the sugar that does it. Cut out the sugar, packaged goods etc. and you will be back to normal in no time.

    Of course this is not easy in Amerika today..

    • salli

      I just read that high blood pressure is really a sugar problem.

      When we ingest fat the fat naturally coats our arteries and the sugar that we consume hardens the fat thus restricting the arteries. Makes sense to me.

  • T

    The article doesn't bring up ingestion of animal products as a main cause of developing hypertension. As only animal products contain cholesterol, eating less meat is a simple way to avoid high blood pressure.

    • http://www.thelivingspirits.net Cristina

      In reply to T

      I am vegetarian. I have been since 30 years. yet I have highblood pressure. All easy reasons and slogans for why we have a desease or not are not helping truth and consciousness for one's health. There are many factors for why we have or not a disease. I put enviromental toxins (i.e chemtrails and poisoned waters) and stress factors (psychic spiritual and emotional) on top.

      • joyce

        I agree. We don't know all the reasons high blood pressure happens so it's easy to blame diet – and especially meat. So to hear that a vegetarian also has high BP is affirming to me that it is more than diet. I think we're just not conditioned yet to the poisonous environment in which we live.

        I find my BP has been rising as I am aging. So I found Hawthorn Berry Extract and Olive Leaf Extract as supplements to be helpful to me. I also take magesium and am a big fan of coconut oil and water — so that might be helping me as well.

    • Jeremy

      Animal products are not the cause of high blood pressure. Cholesterol is not bad for you, it is a necessary component of every cell in your body. All you do by lowering your cholesterol intake is force your liver to work harder to make up the difference for what you actually need. Oxidized cholesterol is a bigger problem and it is generally reduced by cutting out polyunsaturated fats that oxidize at a low temperature when cooking. I've never had a struggle with high blood pressure, but it still went down when I began eating high quality grass fed meats and more saturated fats while cutting down on grains and sugars.

      • mj

        Yes!!!!

    • joyce

      cholesterol is NOT the culprit. New evidence is coming out every day on that. Animal products are not either — more evidence on that too that vegetarianism is not the way to go.

      • mj

        also true!
