Blood Pressure Normal Range - Are You In It
You would think your blood pressure normal range would depend on the person. You know, like your height, weight, and how tall you are. However it just doesn’t work like that.
Truth be told, your normal blood pressure range should be between 110 over 75 to 120 over 80. If your Systolic and Diastolic numbers are out of the normal range you may ask, "What can I do to get my blood pressure in the normal range?" The very first thing you should do is beat a hasty track to your doctor to determine if there is a health problem causing the high numbers. However there a few things you can do on your own.
Cut Out Fried Foods
You know the foods I’m talking about, like fried chicken, or, well anything fried for that matter. I know for some of us, that will be like cutting off our right arm. However, it’s not nearly as painful and it can save your life.
Get Rid Of The Salt Salt
I would say cut back the amount of salt you use, however we both know if you don’t stop using it all together, then you won’t stop at all. You know it, and I know it, so cut it all out. But to make it easier for you use other healthy spices to enhance the flavor of your food.
Limit Soft Drink Intake
Here is one that I think would be the toughest for most us. We have been doing it since we were old enough to pick up a can of it. That is our wonderful soda pop. I know nothing is finer than drinking an ice cold Pepsi or Coke.
However, take a look at the label and see the sodium in each can or bottle. It can be staggering the amount we put in our body.
Eat Healthy Suggestions
Now for some of the good foods that are out there that we can eat to replace some of the bad stuff. Apples are great, and you know that old saying “an apple a day will keep the doctor away” Well its true. Try an apple instead of those chips. For that matter any fruit will do.
Now here is one that may affect some, however not all. For smokers out there that have high blood pressure, YOU HAVE TO STOP!!! There is no way around it, if you stop now then you can lower your blood pressure plus your lungs would be very thankful.
Exercise is a very vital part to getting your blood pressure to the normal level. This is more about will power then it is about some physical ailment. It is very important for you to pick regimen and stick to it.
Not only will you get your blood pressure to a normal level. You can get your cholesterol down, it helps fight depression and overall you will just feel great.
What it boils down to, is making a choice to do something which will benefit you, and the people who care about you. If you want your blood pressure to be in the normal range then I say go for it!!
