Your high blood pressure could kill you. With high blood pressure, your risk of having a heart attack or stroke skyrockets. So you need to make every attempt to control your high blood pressure! Here are five natural ways you can control your high blood pressure in the comfort of your own home.

High blood pressure is a serious condition and it’s a gateway to other types of illnesses. Many people who didn’t even know they had high blood pressure die of heart attacks and strokes every year worldwide!
If you know you have high blood pressure, you already have the upper hand on the disease. So take advantage of that and control your blood pressure to the best of your ability!
Here are five natural remedies you can use to help control your high blood pressure.
Controlling your high blood pressure the natural way
Fixing your underlying problem is the first step to controlling your high blood pressure. 
So what helps you treat the underlying problem?
Start with calcium!
Your heart needs calcium to function properly! But make sure you’re adding magnesium and vitamin D so the calcium is able to function properly. 
Next, get some more potassium into your diet. Researchers say there’s too much sodium and too little potassium in your western diet. And the trick to keeping your blood pressure stable is the balance between sodium and potassium. Add bananas, potatoes, milk and tomatoes to your diet to get your daily dose of potassium. 
Listen to your mom and eat more fruit and vegetables! They’re great for your overall health and help your heart in many ways. And it’s exactly why vegetarians have a lower risk of having high blood pressure!
And lastly, but most importantly, ditch the salt. The food you’re eating generally has salt in it already, so resist the urge to add salt to your meal before tasting. 
Stop snacking on salty items and go for fresh fruit and vegetables instead. Salt doesn’t only mess with your blood pressure; it causes havoc for your kidneys too. 
So remember these five natural ways you can take control of your blood pressure right in the comfort of your own home!
