Natural Remedies for High Blood Pressure with IgA NephropathyHi, my husband has been diagnosed with IgA nephropathy. His blood pressure is 140/80. Doctors want to put him on blood pressure tablets but I would like to try natural therapies first. It would be great to get any advice on how to approach to treat him with natural remedies.

IgA Nephropathy is an auto-immune disease which is caused by immunoglobulin A depositing in kidneys. People with IgA Nephropathy run a high risk of high blood pressure. If the blood pressure can not be brought under controlled in time, it will cause further damage to kidneys.


Western medicines, such as ACE inhibitors and ARBs, are often prescribed to lower blood pressure. They also help reduce proteinuria and preserve kidney function. But the only shortcoming is that they have side effects over time. Therefore, more and more patients turn to natural remedies for high blood pressure.

Natural remedies


Some herbs are becoming favored, because they take effect and have few side effects. For example, dandelion is a powerful diuretic which removes excess fluid from body so as to lower blood pressure. Ginkgo biloba is also a herb that enhances blood circulation by expanding blood vessels and reducing the stickiness of blood platelets. Some other herbs for high blood pressure include garlic, hawthorn, fish oil, folic acid,celery and so on.

Low sodium diet and low fluid intake are also helpful for controlling blood pressure. Fresh vegetables and fruits are high in antioxidant, which can protect you from many patients, so you can eat moderately.
