A note about using High Blood Pressure Herbs - Herbal Remedies for Hypertension
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Best High Blood Pressure Herbs / Herbs For Hypertension
Garlic is the number one high blood pressure herb. Numero uno. It is so powerful that natural healers have even used it in emergency situations involving high blood pressure.
Unlike man-made drugs, garlic has the ability to lower high blood pressure, as well as raise low blood pressure. In other words, it is more than just herbal remedies for hypertension, but in fact herbal remedies for blood pressure in general, as it acts as a blood pressure balancer or regulator. Unfortunately, most of the garlic preparations or products which are available on the shelves are inferior, or almost completely ineffective.
To get results, you have to use fresh, quality, and ideally organic garlic. Quality garlic bulbs are of a strong white color, and contain no more than 8-12 cloves. Garlic that has a yellowish color, or has 30-50 small cloves indicates inferior quality. The ideal starting dosage for garlic is 3-5 cloves per day. You need to use raw garlic, but raw honey can be used to alleviate some of the strong taste.
Cayenne, on the other hand, is the number one herb for circulation, and is second only to garlic as a high blood pressure herb. To get results with cayenne, the pepper needs to be hot. You need to use hot Mexican or Thai peppers such as Serranos, Habeneros, or African Bird Peppers. These are far hotter than Jalapenos, and much, much hotter than most cayenne products found in health food stores.
Red Clover is one of the very best herbs for thinning the blood. Having thick, fatty blood will obviously result in poor circulation and high blood pressure. With the average lifestyle of today, having thick blood is quite common. For many people, red clover can be an effective high blood pressure herb, and using red clover can aid in decreasing blood pressure.
Of course, taking a few high blood pressure herbs will not do much good if you are still gulping down Big Macs and milkshakes. The use of herbs for hypertension needs to be accompanied by lifestyle and dietary changes. Click here to read about lowering blood pressure naturally.
Red clover is one of the best herbs for high blood pressure, but the quality of the herb makes all the difference. The blossoms need to be used when they are still a rich purple. Many herb companies use or sell blossoms that are brown. This means that they were picked when they were dead, or almost dead.
To have good circulation and blood quality, you have to have enough water in your body. Having a sufficient flow of water through the body is absolutely essential for flushing excess minerals and inorganic salts out of the body. It is a well known fact that excess salt will have a negative effect on blood pressure. To start restoring normal blood pressure, it is imperative to be drinking at least 8 cups of water per day.
Most of the salt that we eat today is refined table salt. Natural sea salt contains over 70 trace minerals used by the body. Refined salt has virtually all of the minerals stripped out except for the sodium chloride. Good natural healers know that when you consume imbalanced table salt, it will be less usable by the body and much more likely to build up in the body as inorganic salts. This in turn negatively affects blood pressure.
To regain healthy blood pressure, you need to start replacing the refined, inorganic salts with natural, balanced salt. Unrefined sea salt has a grayish tint to it. If the sea salt is bleached white, it has been heavily refined, regardless of what it says on the package. One of the best brands of natural sea salt is called Celtic Salt.
Natural salt will help to flush the inorganic salts out of the body, and will also provide essential trace minerals. To start regaining a healthy balance of salts in the body, add ¼ - ½ a teaspoon of unrefined salt to each cup of water. You will also need to, as much as possible, reduce your intake of unnatural salts, including high sodium products.
