How to Treat High Blood Pressure
Controlling sodium in your diet is more challenging than most people realize. It is easy to assume you can simply add less salt at the table. The problem with that strategy is that most of the sodium in our diets is already in our food. In the U.S. most pre-packaged food is high in sodium. As a result, fresh produce is always a better choice than canned, and processed food should be far more limited. Two scrambled eggs with no salt added already contain over 120 mg of sodium. Better choices in what you eat and learning to use herbs and spices instead of salt are necessary components to treat high blood pressure.
