The heart has small vessels, which carries blood to different parts of the body. The pumping of the heart creates resistance to the blood flow, which is needed for proper blood circulation. The normal blood pressure is around 130/80. However, if it’s above 160/100, then this is considered high blood pressure. High blood pressure or hypertension is a serious medical condition, which can lead to heart attack or death. One factor that causes this is genes. If someone in your family has this, there’s a possibility that you can also have this. Other factors that may cause this condition are obesity, lack of exercise, aging and too much intake of salt. If you have high blood pressure, make sure to consult with your doctor so he can give you the right medicines as well as teach you on ways on how to treat this.
Aside from medicines, supplements are usually given to a person with this condition. There are also other alternatives, which are used to treat hypertension. One of these is magnetic therapy. Magnetic therapy has been used for many years to treat different diseases and remove pain using different sizes and strengths of magnets. The magnets are placed on different parts of the body for healing. Though this is still not a proven method to treat hypertension, there are some people who claim that this treated their hypertension. However, before trying magnetic therapy or even other remedies, make sure to consult with your doctor first. There are several things that you can purchase which are used for magnetic therapy. It is believed that if you use these, your blood circulation will be better and toxins will be removed as well.
Here are the steps on how to treat high blood pressure with magnetic therapy.
- Diuretics. These are water tablets used to eliminate excess fluid from the body that puts pressure in the heart resulting to high blood pressure. When diuretics are dissolved in the water, the water becomes magnetized.
- Wrist magnet. It’s also believed that wearing this will lower blood pressure. This is because one of the main arteries of the body is located in the wrist, which is called the radial artery. The wrist magnet will make the blood flow better thus lowering blood pressure.
- Magnetic strips. These are placed on the forearm for healing as well as for good circulation of the blood. You can buy a box of these and these can be easily applied on your forearm.
- Magnetic mattress pad. You can find several of these sold in the market. You don’t have to worry about any discomfort that you might feel because these are like ordinary pads, which can be made of cotton or foam. These were just specifically designed with magnets for magnetic therapy. This works best when you sleep, because your blood pressure is normally lower.
Though magnetic therapy has not been scientifically proven to treat high blood pressure, you can still give it a try as long as your doctor approves of it. Furthermore, make sure that what you’re eating is healthy and get proper exercise too.
