Washington: People who want non-drug options for managing their high blood pressure are in for some good news: there are indeed some promising natural treatments to chose from.“Right now we’re seeing a cultural shift where an increasing number of people want to avoid standard pharmaceuticals,” said John Bisognano, professor of Medicine and director of Outpatient Cardiology at the University of Rochester Medical Center.“We’re also seeing a growing number of patients who require a large number of drugs to control their blood pressure and are looking for something else to help manage it.”Bisognano and Kevin Woolf, M.D., a cardiology fellow at the Medical Center, emphasize that all patients with hypertension should adhere to the low-salt DASH diet, which is high in fiber, low in fats and incorporates lots of fruits and vegetables, and follow an exercise and weight loss regimen.Beyond these lifestyle modifications, a dietary supplement to help lower blood pressure is the antioxidant coenzyme Q10, which is also involved in energy production.Woolf also found that potassium helps lower blood pressure, and there is evidence that increasing the amount of potassium we get through the foods we eat could carry some of the same mild benefits as taking supplements.
