Some doctors recommend the following alternative treatment for high blood pressure;
• Fish oil for arteries
One of the most important steps in lowering high blood pressure is to cut down on saturated fat – the kind found in red meats and dairy products. It is recommended that fish be eaten daily, even twice daily if possible. Alternatively omega-3 fatty acids can be taken as a supplement to help lower high blood pressure.
• Eat potassium rich foods
It is recommended that at least two bananas be eaten a day, since high potassium intake can prevent high blood pressure, and lower existing high blood pressure. Other fruits rich in potassium include: dates, apricots, kiwifruit, honeydew melons, nectarines, mangoes, avocados, watermelons, etc.
Some of the potassium-rich vegetable sources include: celery, Swiss chard, parsley, spinach, watercress, cucumbers, broccoli, tomato juice, sweet potatoes and winter squash.
Warning: High intake of potassium could be dangerous for those suffering from kidney disease. Check with your doctor before increasing your intake of potassium.
• Drink 15 glasses of water.
