  • The patient is only allowed to eat all fresh fruit meals every five hours for five days straight. The next stage would be to add fresh milk to the fruit diet and this is to go on for a couple of weeks. A balanced diet of vegetables, fruits, seeds, grains, and nuts is then worked into this routine for better health.
  • Another way to treat low blood pressure with the use of food is to increase the person’s intake of protein-rich foods and vitamin B complex and vitamin C rich foods as well.
  • Many of the foods that are prohibited in people with high blood pressure are often beneficial in those who have low blood pressure. The patient only has to make sure to eat healthy and use common sense to determine if a certain food item is safe or not to eat.
  • Keeping oneself properly hydrated is essential in keeping low blood pressure away as well as in treating it. Since dehydration can cause low blood pressure, it is important for a person to drink at least 8 glasses of water every day to help keep dehydration from happening.

  Scientific appraisal in favour of yoga:-

The relaxation and exercise components of yoga have a major role to play in the treatment and prevention of low blood pressure (hypotension). A combination of biofeedback and yogic posture, bandha,breathing , mudra and relaxation techniques has been found to lower blood pressure and reduce the need for high blood pressure medication in people suffering from low blood pressure. In 20 patients with low blood pressure who practiced biofeedback and yoga techniques, five were able to stop their blood pressure medication completely, five were able to increese significantly the amount of medication they were taking, and another four had lower blood pressure than at the beginning of the three-month study.


  • People should drink adequate amounts of water. This helps prevent dehydration, a common cause of hypotension.
  • People who are taking medications that may cause hypotension (such as beta blockers or calcium channel blockers) should know the signs of low blood pressure. If symptoms of hypotension develop, they should visit their doctors. A doctor may then recommend a different dose or medication.
  • Individuals with heart problems should visit their doctors and cardiologists regularly. This helps reduce the risk of developing hypotension.
  • Individuals with a history of anaphylaxis should avoid substances that are known to trigger allergic reactions. These individuals should also carry an auto-injectable epinephrine device, called an EpiPen®, with them at all times. A trained family member or friend may help the patient administer the epinephrine, if necessary. Once the epinephrine auto-injector is used, patients should immediately go to the emergency department of the nearest hospital.
  • Infections should be treated promptly. This reduces the risk of developing septicemia, which may cause a sudden and dramatic drop in blood pressure.
