Calming Technique To Lower Your Blood Pressure
Dr. Oz said that the power of your mind is very powerful and can work as well as medications at lowering your blood pressure. The secret is to learn how to tune in to your mind body and soul. On the show they invited three guests to demonstrate how you can lower your blood pressure using the calming technique. The three women watched separate videos. Some of the videos were very relaxing and calming in nature. The other video was rather unnerving and anxietal. After watching one of the videos that was intended to increase their anxiety did the trick. One woman’s blood pressure was up high enough that Dr. Oz would recommend blood lowering medication if it was always in that state. However, when she watched a calming video her blood pressure went back down and she felt much more relaxed. When you learn how powerful your mind is, you can use it to put yourself in to a state of ease and relaxation. Your blood pressure will be lower and your stress will be significantly reduced.
