Treating Your High Blood Pressure

Stroke or heart failure are the two most common consequences of blood pressure that’s too high. If you are one of the millions of Americans whose numbers are too high, high blood pressure treatment is available. However, there are also lifestyle changes you can easily make to get your blood pressure down. Taking just 30 minutes of exercise each day is one of the best things you can do for yourself to lower your numbers. Healthy eating on a regular basis is important too, which means limiting salty foods and high cholesterol foods, and eating plenty of low fat dairy, as well as fresh fruit and vegetables. Smoking can elevate your blood pressure too, so quitting is one of the best things you can do. And simply relaxing and trying to avoid stressful situations whenever possible is also one of the best steps you can take.
