Integrative Healthcare Approaches for Hypertension

According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), there are a number of complementary health approaches that may help with hypertension (high blood pressure) as part of a lifestyle change program. Some of these involve mind and body practices including yoga, qi gong, biofeedback, and Transcendental Meditation. Others approaches include dietary supplements including cocoa, coenzyme Q10, garlic, and fish oil (omega-3 fatty acids); it’s important to note the evidence for dietary supplements for hypertension is very limited and sometimes conflicting.
