Depending on the nature of their work, it is not uncommon for some overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) to encounter stress and lack of sleep on a daily basis. This, however, could lead to serious health problems in the future.
Having a high blood pressure, for example, can get in the way of productivity and may reduce the quality of your life. Aside from the aforementioned factors, obesity, eating salty food, smoking, and drinking may also be associated with the disease.
In case you already have high blood pressure, regularly visiting the doctor and taking prescribed medications will be important. Aside from that, you may also want to try other effective ways to reduce the problem.
Lu Huns, doctor of the Moscow football club Spartak, shared some interesting tips about decreasing high blood pressure.
According to a post shared by Healthy Life Tricks, you should focus on these 2 points:
Point # 1:
“This is not even a point, but a line. It passes behind the earlobe to the middle of the clavicle. This line does not need to be pressed or massaged, it need to be very slowly pampered with almost unnoticeable movement of the hand from top to bottom, barely touching with the tips of the fingers. Repeat 10 times on one side, then 10 times on the other side..”
“This point is located on part of the face at the earlobe at a distance of half a centimeter for the ear in the direction towards the nose.
This point should be massaged with the fingertips for about 1 minute on each side of the face. Push hard, but to the point that you feel pain. It does not matter, clockwise or not. It is important that you feel pressure to a certain point.”
As Lu Huns have pointed out, proper blood flow is important for blood pressure to return to normal and so this can be very helpful.
As the blog post tells us:
“Chinese medicine believes that the most important thing is proper blood flow to the muscles and tissues. If somewhere in the body there’s a stagnation of blood, then the development of disease starts at the point. And vice versa – if you ensure adequate blood flow, the body will be able to quickly cure the disease. That’s why massaging key points helps healing.”
