Could you please tell me what are some natural remedies for low Blood pressure?
I have repeatedly low blood pressure and I would like to have some home or natural remedies to improve this. It is usually anywhere from 105/ 75 to 85 / 60 and I often get dizzy patches when it drops.
I'm very keen to bring my Blood pressure up without it continually dropping.
Thanks for any advice you can offer?
Hi there and thanks for your enquiry. There may be a number of reasons and many layers in the body as to why you have this issue and each person may be different from the next. NESProvision is a great way to start the process of finding out why you have low blood pressure. NESProvision is a scanning program that assesses the body fields and prioritizes what your body requires to start correcting the processes within the body. You may require a number of scans over a number of months with recommended remedies being taken inbetween.

In Chinese Medicine they say "not enough blood"! So things that increase blood volume may be useful - ensure your fluid intake each day is adequate (minimum 1.5L) but also make sure you have adequate eletrolytes which are vital for fluid regulation in the body. Sodium is the most important in this regard for low BP. There are herbal medicines that are also beneficial and this is best established under the care and guidance of a registered medical herbalist, as you will need monitoring. If its any compensation to you, low BP is inredibly common and can make you feel quite lethargic, especially in hot weather. Practical tips: in cold weather you will be more prone to cold feet and chilblains (use possum-marino socks and drink ginger tea); to prevent fainting - avoid hot spas, saunas and overly hot showers (end with a blast of cold water), and always stand up slowly - rest half way with your upper body stooped to give your BP a chance to increase to prevent dizzy spells. All the best, Sharon Erdrich
As a Practitioner of Homotoxicology I would reccomend the product of Organo Cor. This remedy works on the heart to stablise function and helps to maintain normal heart rate and blood pressure. It has the potency for establishing blance. I would also balance the heart meridian so that this system in the body can return to normal statis

Aromatherapy can offer relief using oils that increase blood pressure (hypertensive) ie Rosemary (and many others!). A Registered Aromatherapist can help.

-A potassium deficiency is often at the forefront of low blood pressure & I highly recommend that you have your blood presuure monitored closely with a sphygmanometer & with guidance from your doctor.
-Some remedies such as doing deep breathing exercises at least once a day can also assist. Concentrate on inhaling slowly for 3 to 5 seconds. Hold your breath for 3 seconds. Exhale slowly.
-Doing these exercises while taking a brisk walk is recommended.
Walking and breathing exercises promotes healthy blood flow, essential for proper blood pressure. Take a brisk walk once a day for 20 minutes if you can.

Meditate for 30 minutes at least once a day. Meditation is wonderful way to allow the body to rest while awake. By resting and meditating, you give your body the opportunity to naturally recharge itself for optimum function.
Do you have your own sphygmanometer ? The only way to tell for sure whether a treatment has succeeded in increasing your blood pressure is to measure it.
Have you seen a doctor ?
It would be best to see a doctor and/or naturopath - it's not possible to prescribe safely and accurately just on the information you've provided but you might be deficient in protein and/or sodium, in which case increasing these would help.
There are some conditions for which increasing protein and/or sodium could be harmful however so you really should see someone.
