How to Control Your Blood Pressure

By Dakota Caudilla

People with high blood pressure should take precautionary measures to not only control their blood pressure, but they should take steps to lowering their blood pressure through fitness programs, nutrition and dietary schedules and taking proper medication throughout a certain period of time.

The medical term for high blood pressure is "hypertension and high blood pressure is a result of the force of blood pressing against artery walls. In actual fact, everyone's blood pressure goes up and down throughout the day. But in people with high blood pressure, the blood pressure stays consistently high throughout the day.

Although high blood pressure is what doctors consider to be a hereditary condition that can be passed down from generation to generation, there are lots of high blood pressure factors that you CAN control easily, for example, cholesterol level in food, smoking, diabetes, weight and physical activity. In order to control your blood pressure, the first thing you MUST control is your food intake because the type of food that you take has a direct relation to the high blood pressure that you're experiencing. The more cholesterol you consume, the more uncontrollable your high blood pressure condition will become.

One thing that you can do at home is to learn how to monitor your own blood pressure at home. The doctor, of course, has all the equipment needed to measure and monitor your blood pressure, but if you want to lower your blood pressure, you'll need to learn how to monitor your own blood pressure at home.

The more obese and overweight you are, the higher your blood pressure will be, therefore, develop a weight-loss program that you can stick to. But we're not talking about a crash diet. We're referring to a consistent weight-loss program that can help you lower your blood pressure.

The second thing you need to do if you want to lower your blood pressure is to engage in physical activities for at least 30 minutes 3-5 times a week. It need not be strenuous exercise, but moving around actively will help lower your blood pressure. And if you are serious about lowering your blood pressure, you should monitor what you eat too.
