I don't think that high blood pressure
has anything to do with your weight. I have had it for apx. 7 years and I am not overweight
. I was very active when I developed it and when the doctor first said "your blood pressure is high" she also said "it is probably high because you are anxious today" and guess what it was high the next time I visited her.
I have a friend who is stick thin who has had it since she was in her 20s. It probably has more to do with heredity.
I was taking a medication that lowered it sometimes but since I have changed my medication, it has been consistently normal. I get it checked every three months.
I think that the most important thing to do is to get it under control even if you have to take medication. By not doing anything about it, you are damaging your organs. That is why they call it the "silent killer". Your doctor might tell you the same thing.
If you are still interested in going the natural route, you might want to get this guidebook that I have come across.
