A recognized and very effective tool for raising blood pressure is considered hot Cup of strong sweet black tea, drunk in small SIPS. Doctors believe that tea is more effective than coffee. By the way, if to speak about the consumption of coffee in order to increase the pressure, it should be borne in mind that only a drink, brewed from ground beans can have a quick positive effect. Instant coffee does not have this property, i.e., it will have to drink more volume and longer to see results over time.

- on the big toes in contact with the second fingers, close to nail plate;
on little fingers of hands near the nail from the side of the ring finger.
These three points in turn must massage wooden stick with a rounded end, or just your finger in a clockwise direction.
