Lifestyle Changes That Can Help Lower Your Blood Pressure
About Dr. May
Dr. Nathalie May, a primary care physician at Drexel Medicine, explains how you can reduce high blood pressure through exercise and diet modifications.
So I talk about this every day. A lot of it is easier said than done, but when it comes to blood pressure, exercise is something everyone should do. 30 minutes every day is what’s recommended to lower the blood pressure. They should also try not to eat foods that are high in salt. One of the things we often, well, forget is high in salt, are soups. Especially canned soups, they’re loaded with salt. Pizza. A lot of Chinese food can have a lot of salt. But another one, that’s really, really popular with young people is noodles, Ramen noodles. Those packaged noodles are loaded with salt, so if you’re a young person with high blood pressure, stay away from those things.
