Why These 3 Simple Exercises Can Normalize Your Blood Pressure
You may have heard about how to lower high blood pressure by doing exercises like swimming, stair climbing, and other aerobic activities. But how about 3 easy exercises without breaking a sweat?
Yes, those 3 exercises exist. In fact, people have been able to cure their hypertension naturally with such exercises, without having to take medications that can cause various side effects. But first of all, let me stress that if you’re already on medication, you can’t stop taking it right away. You need to consult your doctor beforehand.
Alright, let’s move on.
Oh, before I forget, did I mention that they can work regardless of the cause of your hypertension?
If you’re starting to get curious, here are the exercises:
The first exercise is called walking in a rhythm. When you practice it, your mind will synchronize with the body in a calm state (it can also be practiced sitting down).
The second exercise is called releasing emotions. The exercise is meant to release the tensions that have built up inside of you.
The last exercise, but not the least, is called a relaxation exercise. Yes, it is a traditional relaxation technique, but it will be powerful when combined with the other two exercises.
But it seems that they only work if the hypertension is stress related, right? Mistaken. As mentioned above, they can work even if your hypertension is genetically caused.
Let me explain a bit.
Everyone can have high blood pressure at certain times (like when you have a fight with your partner), and that’s normal. The heart will respond by pumping more blood to give more energy. When the body is normal, blood pressure will return to normal. But when it’s not, your blood pressure can stay high all day.
Now, for example, what if your high blood pressure is caused by cholesterol and not stress? How will those exercises help?
If you have cholesterol built up in your body, your arteries will narrow more than normal, so your heart will have to pump harder and your blood pressure will be higher. To protect themselves from this high pressure, the arteries will harden, but they will also tend to crack (because of the pressure). When there are cracks, cholesterol can build up there and make the pressure worse. Under normal conditions, the heart should be able to normalize blood pressure, but due to hardened arteries it “gets used” to high blood pressure.
Now, what if you get a “focus break” from the exercises?
Your body and mind will relax and your blood pressure will drop for several minutes. If this happens, the arteries will not have to be protected from high pressure. Little by little, when you practice the exercises, the heart will “get used” to lowering the pressure again, and the cracks will begin to heal little by little.
So, that was a little explanation of how they work.
If you’re still skeptical, that’s understandable. Once upon a time there was a man who doubted the exercises because his high blood pressure was genetically caused. However, he later changed his mind after practicing them. When he continued to practice regularly, his blood pressure became healthy again, even though he swore it was 100% genetically caused.
The gentleman met Christian Goodman, the creator of the exercise program, on a plane. Mr. Goodman lent him his iPod so the gentleman could listen to the exercises. After the flight, Mr. Goodman gave him his card in case he wanted to get his own exercises in MP3 format. The gentleman went online and ordered the program right after getting up from his nap.
