My name is Dwan Kelsey, and I'm a Nurse Practitioner with wellLIFE, a diabetes clinic and educational resource center located in Raleigh, North Carolina and we will be discussing how to lower your blood pressure by walking. Just something as simple as walking can lower blood pressure. We have enough research to support that walking along with any other aerobic activity can lower your blood pressure and one thing that we have to remember it doesn't necessarily have to be in a 30 minute increment. You can do ten minutes in the morning, ten minutes in the evening, ten minutes whenever. You can do 15 minutes here, 15 minutes there. So it doesn't necessarily have to be this 30 minute set amount of time. It can be done throughout the way. Research actually states that we should be exercising and if walking is what you do for exercising, great. But we should be exercising about four to five times a week. Our recommendation is that we actually exercise seven days a week because it's just good for the general health. It's just good for the heart. It's good for every organ in our body to exercise. When we start seeing the lowering of blood pressure and even the lowering of blood sugar, that actually can happen very quickly when a patient is consistent, when a patient is consistent with whatever exercise they choose for exercise. That was basic information. Make sure to consult with your health care provider.
