Blood pressure measures the force of blood as it moves throughout your body. When the pressure of your blood is too high, it not only causes stress on your heart but also stress on other organs of your body. In the long run, it can lead to heart disease, stroke, chronic fatigue, and other health problems. In the United States alone, over 50 million Americans have high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. Nearly half of them are over the age of 65. Worldwide this common health condition affects nearly one billion people.

Most of the time high blood pressure goes unnoticed due to the fact that its symptoms are often invisible until it is too late. This is why it is vital to have your blood pressure checked regularly. The good news is that there are many different ways to naturally relieve high blood pressure.

Here are some of the most common natural ways to lower high blood pressure to increase energy and prevent chronic fatigue:

1. Eat healthy foods high in fiber, essential fatty acids, calcium, and potassium

Diets high in fiber, essential fatty acids (EFAs), calcium, and potassium are recommended by doctors and nutritionists to treat hypertension. Foods high in fiber include raw vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, and fruits. Foods rich in potassium include apples, bananas, kelp, asparagus, cabbage, oranges, tomatoes, and alfalfa. For EFAs, nuts and seeds are often high in them. As for calcium, sesame seeds, chia seeds, dark leafy greens, beans, and oranges are great sources of calcium. For best results, consume foods that are organically grown. Onions, garlic, and parsley have also been shown to lower blood pressure.

Dehydration and high sodium intake are also linked to hypertension. Doctors often recommend drinking six to eight cups of fresh filtered water every day to keep your internal organs and blood flow moving smoothly. To lower your high blood pressure, reduce your refined salt intake and cut out most or all processed foods, as they are often high in table salt and refined sugar.

2. Detox your body using raw foods

A detox diet is the perfect way to cleanse your body as you move through the process of balancing your health. Juicing organic plant foods is one of the best ways to detoxify your body of toxins, because it gives your body the necessary energy vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to help it remove toxins from your organs, cells, and bloodstream. These essential energy nutrients are also important for increasing energy and preventing chronic fatigue.

Drinking homemade organic juice is one of the fastest and healthiest methods for getting nutrients into your blood. Just a few days of drinking mostly organic fresh juice will usually increase your energy and decrease your blood pressure levels. Juicing not only reverse certain diseases, it can also slow the aging process. Another great method to naturally lower your blood pressure is to go on a raw organic food diet consisting of mostly raw fruits and vegetables.

3. Dietary supplements

When it comes to taking in nutrients, it is always preferable to get your nutrients from the foods you are eating. However, during an illness or extreme nutrient deficiency, supplements can provide your body with more nutrients, allowing it to recover faster. For best results, consume dietary supplements that are extracted from organic and raw food sources. The following supplements have been recommended for lowering high blood pressure and preventing chronic fatigue:

  • Hawthorn
  • Calcium
  • Magnesium
  • Coenzyme Q10
  • Garlic
  • Potassium

4. Reduce or stop smoking cigarette and drinking alcohol

Cigarette and alcohol contain chemicals that are great for causing damages to your circulatory system. These chemicals can help assist plaque buildup in your arteries and thus increase your risk of hypertension. When you have too much toxins in your body, they can dramatically increase the numbers of free radicals in your blood. Free radicals are unstable molecules. In high levels, they are very harmful to cells. When the cells of your arteries are damaged, your body produces plaque to seal the damage before it creates a leak in your arteries, causing you to bleed internally.

These four health tips to prevent high blood pressure and chronic fatigue are just a few examples of the many things you can do to prevent high blood pressure and chronic fatigue. By implementing these four health tips into your life, you will quickly notice an improvement in your health and energy.
