You can check my blog under the "Nutrition" link for healthy eating habits although key points to lower blood pressure include:
- eat more fruits and vegetables
- eat low-fat or nonfat dairy foods
- consume less salt (eat less processed foods, avoid soy sauce, eat less cottage cheese and bagels)
- consume more potassium (eat more yogurt, orange juice and broccoli)
If you have high blood pressure it may be because your body feels deprived of adequate sleep to be optimally healthy. Strive to get at least six hours of sleep by getting to bed at about the same time each night and waking up at about the same time in the morning. Your body has its own unique biorhythms and ensuring you hit the pillow at the same time each night is what the body "likes". Sweet dreams!
