  • Hypertension could lead some of the health issues such as blood pressure, depression, anxiety. If one of these disorders get formed then they are harder to remove from your life. And that is one reason you need to do something about it.

    The problem with hypertension is that right now it is affecting studies. Later may affect your career and job too. So the habit of the hypertension needs to be broken as early as possible. And you have to focus on the long term solution of handling the stress and in turn tension. Here are some of the steps that you can take -

    1. Learn to do meditation twice a day. One during morning. And second before going to sleep.
    2. Write down what worries you. This reduces stress.
    3. Focus on present. And avoid thinking about the future and it's outcome.
    4. Always think about possibilities instead of problem.

    As far as studies are concerned, it's always better to talk to teachers and form a study group to get yourself off the tension. Also meet the doctor and ask them what can be done about hypertension. Whether you are religious or not, it helps to go into religious places like temple or church to get yourself off the tension. Those places are positive and calm. Your tension can be reduced this way.

  • Hypertension is the result of excess stress due to life - style disorder and in order to ensure a stress - free life style, you may include the following points in your day - to - day life.

    4) Garlic is known to relieve excess stress and hence two buds of Garlic should be consumed in the morning in the empty stomach and any food should be taken after half an hour after its consumption. Allicin present in the garlic is responsible for the thinning the blood thus helping easy circulation of the blood.
    5) Cut half a piece of lemon and pour the same in a glass of warm -water and consume the same early in the morning on a regular way for nearly three months. Lemon containing Vitamin -C would take care of your Hypertension.
