Homeopathic medicine is based on the premise that substances that produce symptoms of sickness in healthy people will have a curative effect when given in reduced quantities to sick people exhibiting those same symptoms. These remedies are believed to stimulate the body’s own healing processes. Besides making lifestyle changes to lower one’s blood pressure, such as to quit smoking, excessive drinking and taking drugs, there are many homeopathic remedies that are effective in treating this disorder.
Argentum nitricum (silver nitrate) has demonstrated to be effective with high blood pressure brought about by anxiety and nervousness. Individuals who are very impulsive, always in a hurry but accomplish nothing, worry about being late when there is plenty of time, or easily angered or excited can benefit by using this product.
Aurum metallicum (gold) can be recommended for individuals displaying symptoms of suicide, hopelessness and self-destruction. Serious individuals who are strongly focused on career and accomplishment can develop high blood pressure through stress and anxiety. Aurum helps calm the worry, depression or anger individuals may feel when they believe they have made a mistake or failed.
Natrum muriaticum (sodium chloride) can help individuals who are dealing with emotional excitement, trauma, bad news, grief, disappointment, suppressed emotions, fear of misfortune, headaches, palpitations or depression, all precursors to high blood pressure. This can be an effective treatment for those who tend to be quiet, withdrawn and overly responsible.
Nux vomica can be prescribed for someone who can be defined as an impatient, driven, on-the-go type individual. Someone who may be living life in the fast lane who has a strong propensity for overeating, overdrinking and not living a healthy lifestyle can benefit from this medicinal remedy, which is used to quell hypertension and anxiety.
Spartium sulphate can increase the strength of the heart and reduce blood pressure. This homeopathic remedy has been known to reduce heart arrhythmia and pulse rate and bring about a lowering of the systolic and diastolic blood pressures.
Besides using homeopathic remedies to lower blood pressure, adding fiber, vegetables, fruit and physical activity to your lifestyle can be very beneficial in controlling this disorder. Also eating foods high in potassium and magnesium, such as bananas, molasses, watermelon and grapes, are good choices for lowering blood pressure and improving your overall health.
