While quitting smoking can be a challenge, natural support such as Dr. Gurgevich's CD "Hypnotic Tonic to Remove Tobacco Addiction" can help - find it in our Marketplace.
- Exercise. Research shows that regular aerobic activity, such as brisk walking, swimming, and cycling, can reduce blood pressure, possibly by keeping blood vessels flexible. Regular exercise can also help you lose weight and keep it off, which is crucial to the success of any high blood pressure treatment plan.
