Natural Substitutes For Beta Blocker drugs

Beta-Adrenergic Blockers like propranolol, carveda, atenolol, concor, etc are drugs that are used for patients with high blood pressure (Hypertension). But like any other drug even these have various unwanted adverse effects and that is why people as well the doctors and researchers are now looking for natural replacements and alternatives for these beta blockers. For instance, Asthma patients are contraindicated for beta blockers as beta blockers may aggeravate bronchial constriction and so those with asthma definitely need a drug that is made up of natural products and do not have side effects or at least effects that are life-threatening or the ones that get far too serious. If a patient is taking some other drugs along with the beta blocker then chances are that the beta blocker will interact with the other drugs and may have side effects due to drug interaction.

Mechanism of action of beta blockers is blocking adrenaline effects and thus keeps the blood pressure in control.


What are Natural Substitutes For Beta Blocker drugs

Passionflower is an herbal plant that works as a strong and effective relaxation as well. It certainly has no side effects. It is as good as many other anxiety cure drugs and this is medially proved. The capsules and tinctures of passionflower can be found in the health food stores.

Chamomile tea is also a very popular relaxation remedy. It has been used by people all over the world for a long time now. Just one cup is sufficient to keep the blood pressure in our body in control. The tea needs to be fragrant and fresh in order to show its efficiency and so the person who gets it should check that out.

There are herbal drugs that claim to be natural and also a substitute of the beta blockers are not safe to use. These drugs are not approved by the doctors or the scientists and are not prescribed by them either. These herbal remedies are known as over-the-counter drugs and can not be fully trusted. Very few of the natural drugs are proved to be effective at all to stop heart failure or even to be able to control blood pressure.

There are some breathing exercises that cures anxiety and therefore they help control the blood pressure hypertension and thus block the harmful effects of the adrenalin, our sympathetic system. While keeping the back straight and thus sitting in an upright position one has to place the tip of the tongue just behind the upper front teeth and then exhale through the mouth. After emptying the lungs the air is to be taken in through the nose while counting four mentally. Then the breath is to be hold until you count seven. This entire cycle needs to be repeated for about fifteen minutes atleast.

Pomegranate juice is another health drink that is a natural remedy for a heart conditions. It basically acts as an anti-oxidants. But it is been said that relying solely on this juice as a cure for a heart problem or for controlling hypertension is not a very good idea. This juice is natural and healthy and therefore safe but needs to be assisted by other medication to cure cardiovascular conditions.

There are a few natural remedies that are prescribed and promoted for various cardiovascular diseases. Like, L-arginine which is among the best known of all the natural substitutes for a heart condition. This drug is quite effective but the real effect of it is still not clear. The theory in which is works shows that it should work wonderfully. The long term benefits are almost known but as it is natural and therefore safe to use, patients do select it to try out for themselves.

Those are only a few strategies of many to help you lower and even successfully take control of your high blood pressure (Hypertension).
