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.
