Home Remedies for Hypotension (low blood pressure)

Increase Salt Intake

Gradually increase salt, but consult with a doctor first. Consider adding a pinch to your drinks or increasing it in meals, but be wary of going overboard.

Stay Hydrated

Aim for at least 8-10 glasses (2-2.5 liters) of water daily, especially in hot weather or after exercising. Infusing water with slices of cucumber or citrus can make it more palatable.

Compression Stockings

Wear compression stockings daily, especially if on your feet for extended periods. Ensure they fit properly, with snugness around the ankle gradually decreasing up the leg.

Small, Frequent Meals

Have 5-6 smaller meals throughout the day rather than 2-3 large ones. Include balanced portions of carbohydrates, proteins, and healthy fats.

Ginger

Incorporate ginger into daily meals or have a cup of ginger tea 1-2 times daily. Fresh ginger can be more potent than powdered.

Caffeine

A cup of coffee or tea can be beneficial, especially in the morning. However, avoid excessive intake, and monitor how your body reacts.

Rosemary

Add rosemary to meals or drink rosemary tea once a day. Alternatively, a few drops of rosemary essential oil can be diffused in living spaces for potential benefits.

Avoid Alcohol

Limit alcohol or avoid it altogether, especially before activities that might exacerbate symptoms of low blood pressure.

Adaptogenic Herbs

Consider taking adaptogenic herbs like ashwagandha, but always under the guidance of a healthcare provider. Dosage may vary based on the specific herb and individual needs.

Raisins

Soak 10-12 raisins overnight in water. Consume them first thing in the morning. Continue this practice daily for best results.

Holy Basil (Tulsi)

Consume 10-12 fresh holy basil leaves daily on an empty stomach. Alternatively, holy basil tea can be consumed.

Almonds and Milk

Soak 5-6 almonds overnight, peel them, and grind to make a paste. Mix with a cup (240 ml) of milk and drink in the morning.

Elevate Your Head

Elevate the head of your bed by about 10-15 degrees. This can be done using sturdy blocks under the bedposts or a wedge pillow.

Licorice Root

Licorice root tea can be consumed once daily, but it's essential to monitor blood pressure and consult with a doctor, especially if considering supplements.

Slow Positional Transitions

When moving from a lying to a standing position, do so in stages. First sit up, pause for a moment, then stand slowly. Holding onto something sturdy can help.

Pomegranate Juice

A daily glass (around 250 ml) of unsweetened pomegranate juice can be consumed, preferably in the morning with breakfast.

Lemon Juice

Mix the juice of 1 lemon with a pinch of salt and a teaspoon of sugar in a glass of water. Drink when feeling lightheaded, especially on hot days.

Beetroot Juice

Drink a glass (around 250 ml) of beetroot juice 2-3 times a week. It provides a nutrient boost that can support overall health and circulation.

Avoid Sudden Exertion

Gradually warm up before exercises and avoid sudden, intense bursts of activity, especially without a proper warm-up.

Stay Cool

During hot weather, stay in shaded or air-conditioned areas, wear light clothing, and ensure you're hydrated. Limit exposure to hot environments like saunas or steam rooms.
