For some people, hypertension (high blood pressure) can be curable as long as a they are willing to commit to a substantial lifestyle change, which could include the following.
- Achieving and Maintaining a Healthy Weight
- Limiting Salt Intake
- Eating Plenty of Fruits, Veggies and Non-Fat Dairy
- Exercising Regularly
- Moderating Alcohol Consumption
- Quitting Smoking
Other things you could do include alternative therapies like yoga or tai chi or even taking certain vitamins like Vitamin D, calcium and/or potassium. Always consult with your doctor if you decide to take or do anything in conjunction with any current medications you are taking.
Unfortunately, even with having made these changes, it’s sometimes not enough to get one’s blood pressure to fall in normal changes. Simply, this means that you may have to take medicine for the rest of your life. Those who have a family history of blood pressure or have high blood pressure as a secondary cause for another disease like kidney disease may also not respond well to lifestyle changes and may be required to take medicines as well.
In the end, make a plan with your doctor as to the best course of action or actions to take to help lower your blood pressure for a longer and healthier life.
