Small ways in life help stabilize blood pressure
Medical experts at the University of Maryland in the United States, after more than 20 years of intensive research, have found that any interaction between people will affect the body to varying degrees, and even a casual chat about the weather will affect the cardiovascular system, especially blood pressure.
Method 1: Sunburn and lower blood pressure. The Health Times reported that Professor Du Fenghe, director of the Department of Cardiology, Beijing Tiantan Hospital suggested that patients with hypertension and high-risk groups should actively participate in outdoor sports.
Because 10 minutes in the sun, blood pressure can drop by 6 mmHg.
Reason: The ultraviolet radiation of sunlight can make the body produce a nutrient-vitamin D3, and the interaction between vitamin D3 and calcium can control arterial blood pressure, so proper sun exposure can reduce blood pressure.
Comments: The sun can expand the skin and blood vessels of the extremities, and indeed has a mild hypotensive effect.
Care should be taken not to expose to the sun, especially the elderly, to avoid heat stroke.
方法2：少说多听 《中国医药报》曾报道，美国马里兰大学的医学专家们经过20多年潜心研究发现，人们之间任何交往对身体都会产生不同程度的影响，即使关于天气的轻松闲谈也Can affect the cardiovascular system, especially blood pressure.
Comments: Makes sense.
Studies have shown that blood pressure rises when speaking, and drops rapidly when listening.
Another experiment also measured blood pressure in three activities: reading aloud; staring at an empty wall; watching fish in the water.
Recording results: The blood pressure is highest when reading aloud; the blood pressure is lower when watching fish in the pool.
It can be seen that patients with hypertension should always maintain a peaceful mood, and talk and listen during the conversation, focusing on listening to avoid emotional excitement and speaking loudly.
Method 3: Blue-green peace and mood The Health Times once reported that the Care magazine published in the United States suggested that patients with hypertension may wish to use more blue-green decorations at home, which has a certain effect on regulating blood pressure.
Comments: Makes sense.
Blue is reminiscent of the blue sky and the ocean, and makes people feel peaceful.
And blood pressure fluctuations are largely related to nervousness.
In fact, the color that has a good suggestion for relaxing mood is green first. Green can calm and relax and help restore energy.
Therefore, it is a good idea to put some green plants indoors.
In addition, there are some non-pharmacological antihypertensive methods often seen in the media. Is it scientific?
Eating 2-3 cloves of garlic daily is the easiest way to lower blood pressure.
Research surveys have shown that consuming 600-900 mg of garlic puree reduces blood pressure by an average of 11 mm Hg.
Comments: There may be a mild hypotensive effect, but it is not credible to reduce 11 mm Hg, and the mechanism is unknown.
In bananas, melon, and yogurt, potassium is high. Potassium can buffer sodium in the body and help control blood pressure.
Potassium-rich foods include soy beans, adzuki beans, tomatoes, zucchini, celery, fresh mushrooms, and various green leafy vegetables; fruits include oranges, apples, bananas, pears, kiwis, persimmons, pineapples, walnuts, watermelons and so on.
Comments: Foods rich in potassium do have a hypotensive effect, but it should be noted that those with renal dysfunction should be cautious to avoid causing hyperkalemia.
Eat more calcium-rich foods, such as dairy products, soy products, sesame sauce, shrimp skins, kelp, bone soup, black fungus, walnuts, sardines, eggs and so on.
Comments: Eggs (especially egg yolks), bone soup, etc. contain more cholesterol and should be eaten in moderation to avoid hypercholesterolemia and easy to cause arteriosclerosis. In fact, the calcium in bone soup is mainly organic calcium, which is difficult to absorb.
Hot and cold bath method.
First take a bath in cold water for 3 minutes, then take a bath in hot water for 3 minutes. Repeat 7 times a day.
Helps to enhance blood vessel elasticity and blood circulation, and has curative effect on hypertension caused by arteriosclerosis.
Comments: This method mainly causes the blood vessels to contract and then expand, which will help improve the vasomotor function, but it should be noted that the heat and cold should be moderate, especially for elderly patients, to avoid blood pressure due to vasomotor contraction.
It must be pointed out that the above non-pharmacological treatment methods are very important for mild or severe hypertension, but those with high blood pressure that cannot be controlled by the above methods, especially those with moderate to severe hypertension, must ask a doctor for treatment and take the medication as prescribed.Press medicine.
For patients with hypertension, controlling blood pressure within the target blood pressure range (generally patients should be controlled at <140/90 mm Hg, chronic kidney disease and diabetes patients should be controlled at <130/80 mm Hg) is to treat hypertensionThe key is to reduce damage to target organs such as heart, brain and kidney.
