Low blood pressure, hypotension, is not an independent disease. The old saying "Hypotonic live long and bad, hypertonic short and sweet" is still statistically true. In hypotension, the blood does not get into the required amount fast enough where it is needed. Organs and brain receive too little oxygen and therefore can not work optimally. Colds, changes in weather, too low fluid intake and lack of exercise can further reduce blood pressure.
However, the causes of low blood pressure are mostly unknown. To clarify the individual cause of the doctor should be consulted. However, many people suffer from the symptoms that cause low blood pressure.
Typical complaints with low blood pressure
- Dizziness, memory weakness
- Drive weakness and easy fatigue
- Blackening in front of the eyes
- Tinnitus and eyelashes
- Cold feeling in hands and feet
Recommendations for the treatment of hypotension
- Water applications can get your circulation going. These include, among other things, morning showers, brush massages or Kneipp treatments.
- Practice gymnastics or sports regularly. Suitable sports include tennis, table tennis, gymnastics, cycling, ball sports and swimming.
- Coffee or other caffeinated drinks can increase your blood pressure in the short term.
- Sleep well and take your time getting up. Lolling and stretching immediately after waking up will bring the circulation slowly into motion.
- If you are severely impaired by the symptoms in your performance, it is advisable to take a blood pressure-increasing drug in the short term.
- Also helpful are cardiovascular preparations based on plants.
