Several studies throughout the years have proven that modern technology raises our blood pressure rather than lowering it.
A new, interesting study, however, reveals how receiving one surprising phone call may improve your blood pressure whopping 20%.
In a massive new study looking at people with high blood pressure, or hypertension, a simple phone call seems to make a huge difference in how well participants ended up faring.
The mega-study by Kaiser Permanente involved almost 65,000 adults with hypertension.
One group of participants received automatic phone calls (also known as robo-calls), prompting them to go to a walk-in clinic to have their blood pressure checked. The other group received no call.
At the conclusion of the 4-week study, the participants in the group receiving the calls were more than 20% more likely to have their blood pressure well-controlled versus the group that received no phone call.
The only problem with this approach is that “well-controlled” blood pressure usually means “highly medicated with bad side effect” blood pressure. I wonder how it would work if people got an automatic phone call reminding them to lower their blood pressure by eating healthy and exercising.
Usually, it doesn’t take much effort to lower blood pressure if the right natural approaches are used. Here is the three-step approach that thousands of readers have used to get their blood pressure under control in as little as a week…
