avoid foods that are salty or spicy. i would stay away from processed foods and freezer foods as these tend to have lots of salt and trans fats. i have been told by my doctor that garlic helps to lower blood pressure as well. my brother and i both started eating garlic when we were told this and both of us now have normal blood pressure again.

I have been to my primary care physician and I have white coat syndrome. I monitor at home at its around 125/75 fluctuating just a little. I have been under a great deal of stress lately and it seems to spike every couple days and now since I am concerned about it the result of course is making it worse. I have had an anxiety disorder since my teens and now am in my late 40 s. I am started to walk on the treadmill again. This seems to help. My question I suppose is how dangerous are those spikes?
