High blood pressure is an interesting thing, and many things can effect blood pressure which can result in a high reading.
Over the last couple of months, my blood pressure had risen a bit, which I didn’t know, until I had it checked, and so I went on about a 2 month work in bringing it down.
The change hasn’t been one single thing, it’s been a multi faceted targeted approach, including:
Drastically Reduced Refined Sugar
Change Breathing Pattern

And results will vary for everyone, though with the combination of the above, over a period of 2 months, it has worked for myself.
Hypertension Doesn’t Require Medication
One thing I would recommend, especially if one deals with anxiety, and subsequently white coat syndrome, is a home blood pressure monitor, for with that, one can begin to see the changes taking place, as one puts in steps to bring their high blood pressure down.
How To Measure Blood Pressure Using An Automatic Monitor
The monitors don’t have to be expensive, as long as they work, and as the readings begin to change over time, one can instantly see the benefits of the work being done, rather than just merely guessing and hoping and waiting for the next visit to the doctors.
Also, it’s also a bit of a backup, for if one goes and gets their blood pressure checked and it’s spiked due to your anxiety, one then can say that the readings you’ve had at home have been these.
The thing is not to become obsessed by taking lots of readings during the day, for blood pressure varies during the day, what one is actually looking at, and for, is a pattern that occurs over time, and as long as one’s overall progress is downwards rather than upwards, then one is working along the right path.
I’ve learnt a lot over the last 2 months, and it’s something else to add to one’s knowledge bank about the workings of one’s own body, and the changes than happen as time goes by, and how in what one does can greatly effect the body
