Healing QA How To Get Off High Blood Pressure Medications_113625757

Q: I have high blood pressure and take 13 pills through out the day. Can you help me get off some of these pills, if not all then at least some?
A: I commend your goal to get yourself off of these pills, for filling yourself up with such substances will take its toll on your body in the long-term. At the same time, though, it would be ill advised for me or anyone else to provide you with a precise regimen to wean yourself off of them without knowing more about your specific condition and working with you to determine the root cause of the imbalances in your circulatory system. I recommend seeking the services of a trained Ayurvedic practitioner to work with you and help you to create a lifestyle and a regimen that will help you to no longer need all of this medication over time. To learn more about Ayurvedic practitioners, you can go to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

With that said, there are more general things you can do to help balance issues related to your circulation and help you to feel better overall. Generally, Ayurveda teaches us that hypertension as well as other heart-related disorders can be caused by consuming too many indigestible foods, exerting oneself to the point of feeling excessive fatigue, feeling excessive emotions associated with stress like worry and fear, and suppressing one’s natural urges like urination and sneezing. To begin taking steps toward reducing your high blood pressure, refrain from eating packaged foods like chips, prepared and frozen meals, and canned goods, refrain from eating the last four or five hours before you go to bed, and refrain from doing too much work and unnecessary chores in any given week.
