4 ways to avoid high blood pressure in menopausal women

When the menstrual cycle ends, the blood pressure of the woman usually rises and the exact reason behind this is still unknown. Increase in Bodymass Index (BMI) or fall in estrogen levels is thought to be the main reason behind this and although physicians have different thoughts, none has been able to provide solid justification for his/her arguments. Real link between menopause and high blood pressure is one of the problems faced by the researchers and concerned medical people nowadays, and more in-depth study might be required as the case appears to be a convoluted one.

Here are presented some tips that can be followed to avoid high blood pressure in menopause and after that:

Tip 1: Eliminate the excess weight in your body

To see a huge improvement in your health and reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure, you have to reduce the weight which is unnecessarily high in your body and bring it down to the recommended level according to your age and height.

Tip 2: Exercise regularly

If you do simple exercises, like walking and other simple aerobics for at least 30 minutes for a minimum of three times a week, you can lower down your blood pressure dramatically and make your blood flow smooth.

Tip 3: Lessen your intake of sweet and salty food

To avoid going through menopause with high blood pressure, avoid eating red meat and processed foods as these can significantly raise the blood pressure. Avoid consuming too much sodium especially when its healthier substitute is available in form of potassium chloride. To help the kidneys get rid of all the excess sodium in your body, it is recommended to consume potassium.

Tip 4: Choose a healthier eating plan

A healthy diet plan is the most important thing if one has to lower her blood pressure. Low-fat or fat-free dairy items, fish oil, fruits, tuna fish, whole grains, and fresh vegetables must be consumed. There is a special diet plan called Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) for lowering blood pressure if followed properly. It is highly recommended by physicians as it has been shown to reduce the blood pressure by up to 14 mm of Hg. Sometimes tea is also very beneficial as well as the other herbal medicines.

To avoid menopause and high blood pressure simultaneously, you have to have self-control and determination in the first place. Avoid all those things that are harmful and adapt every possible thing that is beneficial to the health and start a healthy lifestyle and with the passage of time, improve upon it. To keep your blood pressure stable, it is required that you keep a track of your progress and visit the doctor regularly.
