How do you fix Low Blood Pressure ? 

Low Blood Pressure, also known as hypotension is a condition where the blood pressure against the walls of the main arteries is low enough to cause things like weak spells, dizziness (such as when standing up too quickly), fainting spells, headaches and lack of appetite. Reduced blood pressure means reduced blood flow to the brain, hence the dizzy spells. It can also occur as a result of shock, dehydration (lack of water), low thyroid function, anaemia, fatigue, palpitations, hypochondria, pregnancy and alcoholism.

Low blood pressure is often connected with low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia). They symptoms often overlap, and their root dietary cause is generally the same.

Dietary Deficiencies

The essential dietary cause for low blood pressure is almost always an inadequate balance of alkaline and acid forming foods, coupled with a lack of Vitamin B12, iron, digestive enzymes or protein, and, more often than not, a very low intake of clean filtrated water.

Most people are concerned about high blood pressure due to fear of heart attacks and strokes, but very few are aware of the problem of low blood pressure. Kids heading towards blood pressure problems in adulthood are usually on a forked road – one leading to low blood pressure, the other leading to high blood pressure, depending on their dietary backgrounds and their lifestyles.

The similarity between low and high blood pressure is that both conditions are encouraged and complicated by an inadequate diet. Often the difference between high and low blood pressure not surface until 20 to 30 years of age. The first symptoms, as mentioned, are things like headaches, dizziness, weak spells (low pressure), as well as angina pains in the legs, arms, chest (high pressure). Typically, the sufferer seeks medical help and is then chained to a life-long regimen of some king of drug medication.

What is lacking in this approach is a good dose of common sense. It would be wise for people with high blood pressure to lean towards a well though-out vegetarian diet. The diet needs special attention to protein and iron intake, as well as the abundance of fruit and vegetables.
