If your parents are hypertensive then you will have to be watchful. Otherwise less of salt keeping abdomen free from gas and mind free from tension is must. Without internal medicine I have seen instant good results with shirodhara and meditation and shav asan.

Following are some home remedies to deal with high blood pressure -

· Bananas, dry apricots, orange juice, raisins, spinach, winter squash and boiled potatoes (with skin) help in reducing blood pressure. Add 3-4 servings of vegetables and potassium rich fruits to your diet.

· Add more Vitamin B folate to your diet. You can find it in cereals, whole grain breads and sprouts.

· Maintain the cholesterol level in your blood. Always use good mustard seeds or canola oil.

· Consume fat free dairy foods. The calcium present in the skimmed milk prevents high blood pressure. Drink at least 2 cups of skimmed milk daily.

· Papaya is very good for controlling blood pressure. Eat at least half papaya on empty stomach. Don’t eat anything for two hours after that.

welcome to HealthcareMagic
A person is said to be hypertensive when the blood pressure recorded in morning as well as evening for consecutive at least 3-4 days or even a week is seen to be high;then you need to start medicine which the doctor does.There are factors which can give rise to BP temporarily like:-mental or physical stress;loss of sleepand keeping up late overnight;type-A personality (drinking ;smoking;excessive fat rich food or junk food and sedentary lifestyle);fear ;anxiety;being few causative factors.
Get examined and check your BP regularly twice a day for a couple of days and consult a Physician.In the mean time see if there is any disturbing factor as listed here and try to control all habits which can cause problem.If the BP is constantly high then you will need to take madicine and do regular exercise to control BP.
Hope this answer is helpful.Take care.

HCM forum welcomes you,
you did not mention your blood pressure values here. still believing you its a high blood pressure. you should immediately consult good physician around you and start treatment(that your doctor will decide). this early step will help you to stay away from future heart and other hypertension related complications. so take it as an alarm signal and do it right now.
other things you can follow: you should minimize your salt intake in diet, try to avoid stress in your life and be relax, get rid of obesity if you have and don't have sedentary life style, keep your body moving and fit.
hope it will help you

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?

I am 74 years old and have experienced hot flushes since menopause (at age 54). I experience moderate to high blood pressure and most medications for this make my symptoms worse. I have heart palpitations during these uncomfortable symptoms, experience fatigue and have night sweats which wake me up. I have Sjoegren's Syndrome with Sicca, and Peripehral neuropathy and most other aging symptoms. I don't have dementia, thankfully, but I am curious as to whether hot flushes are impacting on my blood pressure and contributing to my anxieties or could it be caused by my thyroid? My tests show a normal reading for my thyroid. I also had cancer of the uterus, grade 1, and had everything removed nine years ago and have remained cancer free to date. I hope you can help me find a way to improve the situation as I don't have any blocked arteries or heart problems so it is a mystery to me. I am worried about the impact it may eventually have on my heart. Sincerely yours,

I'm male.
I'm 45 years old and I got high pressure blood since 17. I am currently taking 5 drugs to control (not at all) my high pressure blood.
In a recent Renal Angiography was discovered that I have my left kidney hypotrophic with important loss of parenchyma in the middle and lower thirds.
Analyses of plasma renin revealed that is high.

This hypotrophic kidney (left) is working by 37% and 63% right according to a renal scintigraphy.
The recommendation of my doctor(nephrology) is to get me out my hypotrophic kidney to control the high pressure blood and avoid having to take so many drugs.

What is your opinion on this?
