In this video you'll learn seven simple steps to lower high blood pressure naturally and quickly.

If you don't lower your blood pressure, you're increasing your risk for a stroke, heart attack, or heart failure.

As a geriatric physical therapist I've seen these more times than I care to count. It's so much better to prevent them in the first place.

So lowering high blood pressure is an important problem to solve.

Your blood pressure is high if it's anything greater than 130/80. Anything greater than 120/80 should be a flag to make some lifestyle changes.

If you're taking medication like metoprolol, lisinopril, even if your doctor says it's for something else like your kidneys, you likely would have high blood pressure without it.

So we consider that also a flag for lifestyle changes to lower blood pressure.
