How To Lower Blood Pressure Using Ginger Tea
Hi, my name is Usuff.Actually, I’m Usuff’s voiceover guy but he likes my voice so much that I’m him forthis tutorial. I like to share how I brought my high bloodpressure down overnight in a natural way. I did it using fresh ginger root made intoa tea that I drank shortly before sleeping. The next morning my blood pressure had droppedsignificantly. And I made this tutorial just in case it helpsanyone else. By using fresh raw ginger as a tea, I wasable to drop my blood pressure overnight from 174/104 to the less scary figure of 132/82.Just as background information, my blood pressure
has been creeping up these past couple ofyears. A couple of weeks ago it was as high as 167/109.Just in case my trusty â€˜ol Omron BP monitor wasn’t working properly, I bought a secondone from Amazon, the series 10 model. Once it arrived I put it to quick use andmeasured my BP late at night. It was 174/104.When I see figures like these, I get a sense of my own mortality.And that my time on this planet may not be as long as I’d hope.I tried to bring my BP down by slow breathing, but it only nudged down a few points.Then I remembered that at my last visit to
my family she mentioned a Chinese patientof hers many years ago recommending ginger. And having seen the use and benefits of gingerexplained on the Oz show recently, I kicked into action.I made a tea from freshly grated ginger root, adding lemon and honey.The lemon juice and honey is my own idea, by the way.I just added it to make it taste good. It’s how I make my ginger tea.It’s quite simple, actually. First you take ginger root.Then you grate it finely with the grater. The grated ginger is then added to the teapot.Boiling hot water is then added.
And it’s set aside to infuse for a few minutes.During this time I squeezed some fresh lemon juice.And once the ginger has had time to infuse, I’ll pour it into a cup.A little honey is then added. Here it says quot;Australianquot; honey. There’s nothingspecial about it, I just happen to live in Australia.The lemon juice is added at the very end. And voila, your fresh ginger tea is ready.I drank it shortly before sleeping. Cheers.It tastes quite good, actually. It tastes pretty good actually, very good.In the morning, when I woke up, my blood pressure
was significantly lower.Here are the readings again from my new Omron blood pressure monitor.It was 174/104 shortly before midnight. I then resorted to ginger tea to see if thatwould help. And it did.The next morning, shortly after 8, it had fallen to 132/82.It was as if I was thrown a lifeline. As an afterthought, I can’t discount thepossibility my slow breathing helped lower my blood pressure overnight.I did some research into the subject. A study published in the year 2000 by Weidnerand Sigwart found ginger extract did not lower
the systolic blood pressure in rats.This study, as well as many others, didn’t use real ginger root but a patented commercialginger extract called EV.EXT 33. Another study conducted in 2005 by Ghayarand Gilani, and reported in the Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology, did use freshginger with rats. And found ginger did lower blood pressure.The report said : quot;…we report the BPlowering effect of thecrude extract of fresh ginger in anesthetized rats. The use of ginger in cardiovasculardiseases has long been known. Ginger is known to have a diuretic and blood pressure loweringeffect. In the traditional medicine practice
