14. High Blood Pressure
Why It Happens: Nose bleeds can be a symptom of high blood pressure. Although there’s little scientific proof, it seems that the increased pressure can cause the blood vessels in the nose to rupture and the nose to bleed.
Additional Info: High blood pressure is often called the ‘silent killer,’ as there are generally no symptoms. If you find that you’re having nosebleeds for no obvious reason, it may be a good idea to have your blood pressure monitored.
What To Do: Drink plenty of liquids, especially good quality water. Studies show that increasing water intake can lower blood pressure. Supplementing with omega 3, garlic and vitamin E can also help.
