Natural Remedies for common medical conditions
A healthy, well-balanced, low fat diet is extremely important for hypertension patients. Fresh fruits and vegetables are a must ( garlic should be included ) as the potassium present in them counters the effect of salt taken which in turn is a blood pressure increasing agent. Kidney patients, though, should keep a watch over their potassium intake. This diet of fruits and vegetables will also provide you with anti-oxidants, so very important for your general well being. This diet gets rid of the toxins in the body as well.
There are many different prescription drugs for high blood pressure including vasodilators, alpha-blockers, beta-blockers, diuretics, etc. Each has a different way of working and different drugs may work for different people. You may need to try a variety before you find the right drug or combination of drugs suitable for you. Some examples of medication that your doctor may recommend are: enalapril (Vasotec), losartan (Cozaar), atenolol (Tenormin), and furosemide (Lasix).
Like many synthetic drugs, anti-hypertensive medication has a risk of causing side effects, which depend on the person as well as the type of drug being taken. These can include dizziness, nausea, stomach problems, fatigue, impotence, insomnia, loss of appetite, and low blood pressure among others. Always speak to your doctor if you are having problems.
Extremely high blood pressure (malignant hypertension) or rapidly worsening hypertension (accelerated hypertension) most definitely requires treatment using conventional medicine. Remember, as blood pressure requires monitoring and in some cases the use of blood pressure-lowering drugs, alternative treatment for even moderate hypertension must be strictly taken under medical supervision only
There are a number of herbal and homeopathic remedies that are well known for their ability to control high blood pressure with great success. Unlike conventional medicines, which do not always address the root cause, natural remedies can do this without the risk of side effects or addiction.
In keeping with a holistic approach to health, Naturopaths recognize that high blood pressure may be a sign or symptom of imbalance in the body and thus recommend a combination of lifestyle changes and natural remedies to remove the causes of the high blood pressure, rather than simply just treating the symptoms.
Remember to always source your natural remedies from a reputable company in order to ensure safety, efficacy, and correct therapeutic dosage.
