Low Blood Pressure Natural Remedies

Low blood pressure causes a complex set of symptoms when pressure stays below 100/65. It is more common in young women and tall thin people, accounting for 5% of the population; y in people with varicose veins are more likely to have low blood pressure. Symptoms include:

  • Waking up feeling tired
  • Depression
  • Nervousness, irritability
  • Concentration weak
  • Sensitivity to weather change
  • Headache or pressure
  • Vertigo
  • Black floaters in the eyes
  • Pale face
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Heart pains, palpitations
  • Tinnitus – ringing in ears
  • Deafness
  • Faintness upon standing (adrenal involvement)

Causes of low blood pressure for our sake of discussion are circulatory weakness, diet and lifestyle, or nervous system problems. These are the major causes. If not, less common causes of low blood pressure may be insomnia, diabetes, digestive, hormonal disturbances, thyroid, and adrenal problems, blood poisoning or allergic reactions.

The medical community is not certain that this is a condition or disease. Drugs such as high blood pressure meds, circulation meds (including blood thinners), and anti-depressants may contribute to low blood pressure. They may utilize stimulating drugs to raise blood pressure (always with side effects and are short-term fixes). Make sure you are tested for more serious problems.

The natural perspective here will discuss the 3 common causes:

First is poor diet and fast foods, tobacco, alcohol, coffee, black tea, caffeine can contribute in a susceptible person. Why not change your lifestyle now? Second, nervous conditions often are the cause of low blood pressure. This is due to long-term stress or extreme stress condition, and not enough B Vitamins (B-Complex). Third, a more serious condition may be heart and circulatory weakness, usually caused from an illness or chronic weakness.

Be sure of your cause and the following natural solutions may be helpful. Also, moderate physical exercise is helpful as well as alternating hot and cold showers. Be patient as it may take a couple of weeks to notice change and several months or longer to turn around a chronic low blood pressure condition.

Natural Remedies for Stress & Exhaustion

Tired of feeling stressed and exhausted? You can have more energy, think clearly, and feel overall motivated by becoming aware of the cycle you are in, and following 3 simple ideas.

The Cycle

The cycle begins when we take on too many projects, or do more thanour bodies and minds are capable. So, we rely on stimulants to help us meet our extra obligations. This stresses the exhaustionadrenals whichcauses exhaustion, so we take more stimulants to feel energetic and get caught up in the cycle of increasing our intake of stimulants, taking on more projects, getting less sleep, getting more stressed, etc, etc, until we are completely exhausted.

The real problem is, then it starts working on other weak points in our body (organs or tissues), producing the possibility of conditions or diseases as a result of too much stress. Then our immune reserves start tapping not only our adrenals, but from other organs, depending upon personal weaknesses.

Adrenal Fatigue is seen as exhaustion, and increasing amounts of caffeine only leaves you more exhausted as the drug (caffeine) wears off. Other symptoms include dark circles under the eyes. If it progresses much further we see the person feel faint when standing up quickly. Another symptom is the inability to fall asleep. It actually takes energy to sleep. (Many sleep medications force you to sleep while creating dependence.)

Breaking the Cycle of Exhaustion

First, consider your work and life situations. Are you taking breaks at work and actually eating lunch? Are you avoiding fast foods that rob you of nutrition and further exhaust your energy? This is a good start. What do you do for fun? Are you having enough fun in life or are you at the daily grind? Sometimes it takes an attitude to have fun and see the humorous side of life. Also, learn when to say no, to keep your “full plate” from overflowing.

Second, make sure you are getting the nutrition you need by going to your local health food store where you can find whole-food vitamins. New Chapter Whole-food vitamins are different; they are made from whole foods that your body recognizes the nutrients and knows what to do with them. Available in one-a-day, men’s and women’s formulas.

Third, certain herbs are tonics and can restore the adrenal functioning and help you have the energy you need. As your mineral reserve is probably low, use cell salts to fill the void. Use other homeopathics for emotional and physical support.


Herbs for Stress & Exhaustion

Herbs are plants valued for their specific strengthening/ tonifying properties.

Lavender – feeds the nerves, strengthens the adrenals and improves digestion.

Siberian Ginseng, now called Eleutherococcus as an adaptogen. Adaptogens help to reduce stress, increase energy, and feed the adrenals so they can function at a higher level, without stimulant effects.

(Remember, with stimulants what goes up must come crashing down.) These two herbs may take a couple of weeks for maximum effects.

If your sleep is affected, add the herb Melissa (Lemon balm). This herb feeds the nerves and allows the person to relax and sleep better.

Cell Salts to Help with Stress & Exhaustion

To make a cell salt solution, put up to 10 tablets of each cell salt in a 16- to 24-ounce bottle; fill with water and swirl to dissolve tablets. Sip throughout the day.
