Home Remedies from south India: Blood Pressure

This is a continuation of the series which started with Hair Care. The other posts covered Eye care, Coughs, Digestive disorders, Head aches, and Skin care among other topics. The information in this series is the knowledge of my grandmother, which I documented as part of a project on medicinal plants and home remedies.

  1. Olive oil and celery lowers blood pressure.
  2. Kuttlu pasalai (spinach) is eaten to lower high blood pressure.
  3. Monounsaturated fat in avocados lowers cholesterol and unclogs arteries
  4. A paste of honey and cinnamon powder is applied on bread or chappati and eaten as breakfast regularly. This relieves loss of breath and strengthens heartbeat.


The pictures used in this series are inserted from other websites. I have used them only to illustrate the ingredients used in the remedies.
