Lower Your High Blood Pressure In 5 Minutes With Zero Medication

The vast majority of American adults are diagnosed with high blood pressure and if you are one among them, you are not alone. If not sure, consult your doctor and know the risk factors to see if you are at the risk:
  • sleep deprivation
  • high stress levels
  • excessive consumption of fatty or acidic foods
  • obesity
  • smoking
  • consumption of alcohol.
High blood pressure may lead to serious conditions concerning heart diseases, chronic stress and other medical problems.

The Easy Trick You Can Use to Lower Your Blood Pressure:
If you suffer from chronic high blood pressure you know how uneasy you sometimes feel when the pressure rises. There is a way to lower high blood pressure without using medications. By simply massaging your neck, you may help yourself in just 5 minutes.

Find a spot using your two fingers that is just below your earlobe. Then trace your fingers straight down until you hit your clavicle. Remember this position during your massage. Starting at the clavicle, gently press, moving your fingers straight up until you hit your jaw line. Repeat this 10 times on each side of your neck.

Then, place your fingers next to your earlobes on your cheekbones. Gently massage, moving your fingers in a clockwise direction. Slowly and gently massage for about one minute. You don’t want to press hard, as this can increase pain in your neck and make your blood pressure worse.

The process should take less than five minutes. By the time you’re done, you should feel your stress levels decrease and notice the symptoms of high blood pressure dropping down from your body.

Other Ways to Stabilize Your Blood Pressure:
Breathe deeply: practice your breathing, in a yoga-like way and concentrate on thinking happy thoughts.

Avoid salt: salt is very important for your health but increased amount of salt intake can be unhealthy for you.

Minimize caffeine: switch to decaf coffee or even better, switch to herbal teas.

If you manage to keep your blood pressure under control, you can still enjoy quality life even if you have this chronic condition. If you have a history of high blood pressure, practice these techniques in your everyday life and we hope you feel better.
