Herbal Treatment for Low Blood Pressure
Due to their properties to regulate blood pressure, Shepherd's Purse and Mistletoe are prescribed both in case of hypertension, and hypotension.
1. Shepherd's Purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris) regulates and normalizes blood pressure.
Because of these properties, Shepherd's Purse is recommended as an aid in heart disease with arrhythmia, accompanied by hypertension, hypotension or labile blood pressure.
Shepherd's Purse is also recommended as an excellent treatment of Tachycardia (abnormal heartbeat acceleration due to exercise, emotions, a heart condition etc.).
Infusion: Put a spoon of dried Shepherd's Purse in a cup and pour boiling water. Drink 2 cups a day, in the morning and evening, before meals.
2. Mistletoe (Viscum album) is one of the most efficient high and low blood pressure herbs.
It regulates blood pressure (lowers blood pressure in hypertensive and raises it in hypotensive), but it also has a certain toxicity. Therefore, heart patients should be very careful when using mistletoe and, if cardiac arrhythmia occurs, the treatment should be discontinued.
Prepare it as cold macerate. Put 1 teaspoon of mistletoe in 0.25 l of cold water. Leave overnight and strain in the morning. Drink 2-3 cups per day.
These remedies should be prescribed only by a phytotheraphist after a cardiology check-up.
