Naturally ways to treat Blood Pressure
Diuretics are sometimes called “water pills,” because they make you urinate more than usual thus they keep the blood amount lower thus lowering the blood pressure. Some examples of diuretics include chlorthalidone, indapamide, hydrochlorothiazide (also known as HCTZ), and furosemide (brand name: Lasix). These are generally cheap and effective, they are not prescribed as often as some newer drugs. This is because some such as the thiazide diuretics can be ssociated with increased risk of new-onset diabetes and as such are recommended for use in patients over 65 where the risk of new-onset diabetes is outweighed by the benefits of controlling systolic blood pressure.
2 – ACE inhibitors and ARBs
ACE inhibitors and ARBs are often grouped together, because they work in similar n ifor people with diabetes, because people with diabetes have a higher-than-average risk of kidney disease and they have been shown to slow the worsening of kidney disease in diabetes patients. Also, people with heart failure who take ACE inhibitors and ARBs live longer than people with heart failure who don’t.
Some examples of ACE inhibitors include enalapril, captopril, and lisinopril. Some examples of ARBs include candesartan (brand name: Atacand) and valsartan (brand name: Diovan).

4 – Beta blockers
Besides lowering blood pressure, beta blockers help reduce the amount of work the heart has to do. Studies show that people who take a beta blocker after a heart attack are less likely to have another heart attack or die than people who don’t take a beta blocker. Studies also show that people with heart failure who take beta blockers live longer than people with heart failure who don’t.
5 – Vasodilators
