How to treat joint knee pain for osteoarthritis and high blood pressure?

Dec 9, 2016

Knee pain from osteoarthritis can respond well to acupuncture and to dietary supplements. Here’s a page listing the supplements that have been studied to support arthritis.

When it comes to lowering blood pressure normally, L-Arginine is a dietary supplement that can help. You can also use supplements like Vitamin C to improve the health of the arteries. Foods like aged garlic can also help reduce blood pressure. Making sure that you use the right kind of salt in your diet (sea salt, not table salt loaded with sodium) and getting moderate exercise can also help you move the needle on your blood pressure issues in a big way.

Just remember: when you are on medications, changing your diet and lifestyle for the better is a great step to take on your own. However, when introducing dietary supplements alongside medications, you should keep your medical practitioner involved.
