Why is it that my blood pressure goes up when I rest or sleep, and it goes down when I do strenuous activity. None of the Dr's I have been to can explain this. I have difficulty sleeping at night because my BP goes up an hour or so after I have gone to sleep.
These are the facts that causes of high blood pressure
Being overweight or obese
Lack of physical activity
Too much salt in the diet
Too much alcohol consumption (more than 1 to 2 drinks per day)
Family history of high blood pressure
Chronic kidney disease
Adrenal and thyroid disorders
I don't smoke- I get plenty of phisical activity- I don't use salt- I don't drink- I don't have any stress except the HBP- I've had my Adrenal & thyroid check- Had kidneys checked-I can't comment on genetics- I am older (71 )- Idon't know about family history. The HBP didn't start until 2 years ago. I have been trying to find out why ever since. So none of this hehps. I have allready covered all of it. I was hoping for something off the wall that normally wouldn't be thought of. Thanks for trying though.
Follow these natural techniques everyday and you will get the BP under control and sleep better. Try and do anulom vilom for more than 10 minutes.This works gradually so allow weeks, but you will notice the difference in days.
Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
Anulom Vilom pranayam –

then – close left nostril with two fingers and breath-out through right nostril
then -keeping the left nostril closed deep breath-in through right nostril
then - close your right nostril with thumb and breath-out through left nostril.
This is one cycle of anulom vilom.
Repeat this cycle for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day.
Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed.
