High blood pressure can be a result from stress, anxiety, smoking, and other stimulants. High blood pressure can be very common if it runs in your family as well. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, one method of reducing high blood pressure is by putting pressure on your foot. In the graphic above, you can see two pressure points, number one and number two. By using your hands, try putting pressure on those two pressure points for about 10 minutes. After that, check your blood pressure by using a blood pressure monitor. High blood pressure is considered to be at 140/90mm and a normal blood pressure would be around 120/80mm.
Here are other ways to maintain your blood pressure:
Acupuncture – Acupuncture is very popular in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture is “a complementary medical practice that entails stimulating certain points on the body, most often with a needle penetrating the skin, to alleviate pain or to help treat various health conditions” . It looks painful, but the needles in acupuncture are used to release energy!
Eating right – Maintaining a healthy diet, and also reducing the amount of salt and sodium. In TCM, one way of reducing high blood pressure would be eating ‘cold foods’ and staying away from ‘hot foods’. Cold foods are referred to as things such as vegetables and fruits and hot foods would be considered food items that make your stomach heath like spices or hot plates.
Exercise – Exercise plays a key role in ones’ everyday life. Body movement will help keep constant blood flow and reduce the risk of heart disease.
