Beta-Adrenergic Blockers are medicines that are used for patients with high blood pressure. But like any other medicine even these have various adverse effects and that is why people as well the doctors and scientists are now looking for
natural replacements and substitutes of these beta blockers. For instance, people who have asthma are not given beta blockers and so those with asthma definitely need a medicine that is made up of natural products and do not have side effects or at least effects that are life-threatening or the ones that get far too serious. If a patient is taking some other medicines along with the beta blocker then chances are that the beta blocker will interact with the other drugs and thus cause side effects.

Now what the beta blockers do is it blocks some the adrenalin effects and thus keeps the blood pressure in control. Passionflower is an herbal plant that works as a strong and effective relaxation as well. It certainly has no side effects. It is as good as many other anxiety cure medicines and this is medially proved. The capsules and tinctures of passionflower can be found in the health food stores.

Chamomile tea is also a very famous relaxation remedy. It has been used by people all over the world for a long time now. Just one cup suffices to keep the blood pressure in our body in control. The tea needs to be fragrant and fresh in order to work effectively and so the person who buys it should check that out.

The right breathing exercises always work as anxiety cures and therefore they help
control the blood pressure and thus block the harmful effects of the adrenalin. While keeping the back straight and thus sitting in an upright position one has to place the tip of the tongue just behind the upper front teeth and then exhale through the mouth. After emptying the lungs the air is to be taken in through the nose while counting four mentally. Then the breath is to be hold until you count seven. This enter cycle needs to be repeated for about fifteen minutes.

But there are herbal medications that claim to be natural and also a substitute of the beta blockers are not safe to use. These drugs are not approved by the doctors or the scientists and are not prescribed by them either. These herbal remedies are known as over-the-counter drugs and can not be fully trusted. Very few of the natural medicines are proved to be effective at all to stop heart failure or even to be able to keep the blood pressure in control.

There are a few natural remedies that are prescribed and promoted for various cardiovascular conditions. Like, L-arginine which is among the best known of all the natural substitutes for a heart condition. This medicine is quite promising but the real effect of it is still not clear. The theory in which is works shows that it should work wonderfully. The long term benefits are almost known but as it is natural and therefore safe to use, patients do choose to try it out for themselves.

Pomegranate juice is another health drink that is a natural remedy for a heart condition. It has got a lot of polyphenols that work as anti-oxidants. But it is been said that relying solely on this juice as a cure for a heart problem or for controlling high blood pressure is not a very good idea. This juice is natural and healthy and therefore safe but needs to be assisted by other medication to cure cardiovascular problems.

Those are only a few strategies of many to help you lower and even successfully take control of your high blood pressure.
