Motion is life.Hypotonics are highly undesirable to maintain immobility for a long time( especially since the decline of forces most often occurs in mental workers who move little).Morning gymnastics, outdoor walks, outdoor games, fitness, jogging - all this trains the heart and increases the tone of the vessels.Improving the condition of the arteries is facilitated by a contrast shower.Take it should be for 5-7 minutes, alternating hot and cold water.

Reduced pressure during pregnancy
Pregnant women may want a loving and caring husband who will not demand from them strict fulfillment of all household duties.This is not a joke, the only effective way to keep the blood pressure within normal limits for a pregnant woman is to lie on your back, putting your feet on the pillow so that they are above your head.The intake of herbal preparations is highly undesirable, since no one knows how the fetus will react to them.Some of these drugs have a stimulating effect and can increase the tone of the uterus, provoking complications of pregnancy. Low blood pressure is not a disease.In some cases, it is a symptom of a disease that can be detected by a thorough examination.However, most often this is a variant of the norm, an individual feature of the organism, with which one simply has to learn how to live.
