Lifestyle Modifications with Blood Pressure

Dr. Moalemi explains lifestyle modifications when having blood pressure.

Your diet: must always be low in sodium. She introduces a dash diet, which is a two thousand milligram sodium restricted diet. You must read labels on ingredients to keep track of your sodium intake.

Exercise: You need to exercise 3-4 times a week. Nothing severe, but enough to keep your blood flow moving and to stay healthy.

Losing weight: Losing weight is a huge factor when having blood pressure issues. Changing eating habits and exercise will have a natural effect on your body losing weight. A lower calorie intake is highly recommended when trying to lose weight. Even if weight loss isn’t working, Dr. Moalemi will tell you ways to still lower your blood pressure.
