SIMPLE NATURAL WAYS TO LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE
There are 3 spots in the neck and head area you need to massage in order to lower blood pressure. There is one right below the ear, another one in the same line at the base of the neck and the third from the ear to the face. Slowly massage them with low pressure for about 2-3 minutes. This regulates blood circulation through the head, controlling the amount of blood that gets to the brain, in the same time lowering the blood pressure.
Breathing through left nostril
If you breathe through left side of the nose you will relieve your organism from stress and relax the blood vessels. Block the right side of the nose with a hand and breathe deep through the left. When you breathe in hold your breath for few seconds and then breathe out. Keep one hand on your stomach and sit straight on a chair with your back on the stool. Breathe this way for 3-5 minutes.
Relax by putting your body in special position so that your pulse lowers and blood pressure regulates. Lie on your back, relax the muscles and lay your arms beside the body. This method will not only help you lower the blood pressure but also calm your nerves down and give you mental balance. You will feel much better after this.
