Low Blood Pressure Remedies and Prevention

Fatigue and exhaustion, feeling faint or even actually fainting, especially just after getting up from a lying or sitting position, are typical symptoms of extremely low blood pressure. Make sure you get your blood pressure checked regularly by your doctor or at a pharmacy.

Low Blood Pressure
Low Blood Pressure Remedies –
  • Pump up the fluids. Dehydration reduces blood volume, which can lead to low blood pressure.
  • Drink black tea; it is a stimulant. But do not let it steep for longer than 3–5 minutes.
  • Sleep with your upper body slightly elevated to stimulate circulation and make it easier to bounce out of bed in the morning.
  • Have a shot glass of rosemary wine with a meal at midday and in the evening to help boost blood circulation. To make it, pour about 3 cups (750 ml) white wine over a heaping tablespoon (20 g) fresh rosemary leaves. Strain and bottle after 5 days.
  • Indulge a sweet tooth with licorice. Eat one small piece a day, no more than 1 tablespoon (15 g). The active ingredient in it, glycyrrhizin, can have undesirable side effects if consumed in large quantities.
  • Soak 30 raisins in water overnight. Raisins may help to regulate blood pressure. Eat the raisins in the morning and drink the raisin water.
  • Alternate cold and hot water during your morning shower. This practice has long been a tradition in some parts of Europe. It forces blood vessels to contract then expand and helps blood pressure to return to normal.
  • Begin with warm water. Then after 2 minutes, turn the temperature to cold for 15 seconds. Repeat the procedure three times, always ending with cold water.
  • Get moving. Physical activity increases blood pressure, so try a regime of light exercises such as walking, swimming, or cycling.
  • Remember to first clear any exercise program with your doctor.
Brush Massage –
  • Massage may help those with high blood pressure to cope with stress.
  • Start with a natural-bristle brush on the back of your right foot and brush your right leg up to the buttock using a circular motion, first on the outside, then the inside.
  • Repeat on the left leg.
  • Brush your buttocks, upper body, and arms, again using a circular motion.
  • Finally, ask your partner to massage your back using the same technique.
