Alternatives in Cardiology for Treating Blood Pressure

 

Today, treatment of a disease can be done not with just conventional medicines but also with alternative ways. This is because such forms of treatments usually do not have any side effects. High blood pressure is also one such disease for which people look for alternative treatment rather than taking regular medicines. Some of these ways are:

1.Mineral control: Nutritionists will tell you that leafy, green vegetables and whole grain cereals are good for lowering blood pressure because they contain magnesium, potassium and folic acid. These minerals can be made a regular feature of a hypertensive’s meal to control his blood pressure.

2.Vitamin therapy: The use of vitamins such as B, C, D and E for the treatment of blood pressure is not a new practice. Many people prefer taking them because of their easy availability as supplements are readily available in the market. Taking vitamins is also easy as they come in delicious parcels, that is, in the form of fruits.

3.Physical therapy: Stress and anxiety are important causes of high blood pressure. Hence, one way of lowering blood pressure is to decrease stress from one’s daily routine. This can be done through physical therapy like yoga which is a proven and ancient form of exercise in mental relaxation. Deep practitioners of yoga have also been known to cure hypertension. Physical therapy also helps in improving the overall health of the body.

4.Homeopathy or herbal medication: The latest trend in treating health problems leans towards homeopathy and herbalism. Nux-vomica, belladonna and glonoine are few examples of homeopathic medicines that help in reducing high blood pressure.

5.    Flower therapy: Everyone loves flowers! However, according to the latest trend, people not only use flowers to decorate their homes but also for medicinal purposes. Hawthorn, beech and passion flower have certain chemical compositions that have a beneficial affect on hypertension.

All these above therapies should be tried after taking a clear analysis of the patient’s health and needs. Some patients would respond more to one type of treatment than others. Another important thing to keep in mind is to check your blood pressure every day. This would help in telling you how effective your chosen form of treatment is.
