If you’ve been diagnosed with high blood pressure, you may know the importance of making every effort to reduce it to prevent serious heart and health conditions. While many medications are available to help, there are natural ways, that when incorporated as part of your normal routine, can make a long-lasting impact on reducing high blood pressure.
Join us for an evening of meditation, light movement and nutrition tips that have been shown to help you better cope with stress and reduce high blood pressure. Including:
Taking regular time throughout your day to be mindful of thoughts and actions can help quiet the mind or body. Our Zen evening will spend approximately 90 minutes discussing and experiencing various meditation practices. Bring your favorite seat cushion for added comfort if you wish.
Not just for the gurus anymore, some simple yoga movements and breathing techniques help distribute blood and tone muscles while improving overall circulation to help you better manage stress. During this event, you can expect to have beginner yoga demonstrations with time to practice. Wear loose clothes and comfortable shoes.
Certain foods can promote or cause high blood pressure. Learn about the DASH diet (dietary approaches to stop hypertension), a practical diet that harnesses the blood-pressure-lowering potential of healthful foods. Learn what they are and get tips on how to better make them a part of your daily meals and snacks.
Seminars are presented in Hudson Hospital's Conference Center located just inside
the hospital main entrance. All seminars are free and open to the public.
