stressful and sedentary life is responsible for hypertension
so if u want to get rid of hypertension without medication you have to lead stress free life with daily atleast half an hour walking.
food which wil help you normalise high pressure is garlic..eat atleast 3 to 4 garlic in a day and include onion in your diet
Meat and eggs cause blood pressure to rise more than any other food,salt in diet should be resticted.
take fruits at five-hourly intervals, thrice a day.strawberry is best in lowering BP,orange,apple,mango,guavava,pear,pineapple,grapes.
Include raw salads in your diet as a snacks at evening time as
cucumber, carrot, tomato, onion, radish, cabbage and spinach are best.monitor your BP every week

Hello, my name is Dianne. I have suffered from hypertension for over 6 years. Several medications did not work. My right kidney was removed in November of last year. My bp came down. I am now on only 200 mg of labatalol 2 times daily. I has been increasing. About two weeks ago I experienced and was treated for bronchitis with Z-pack then started Cipro three days ago. However, I am extremely out of breathe now and have muscle pain from my upper neck to my lower back. It feels as though I am bruised to the point I cant even wear a bra. I have tightness in my chest just to the left side. I also feel very tired and have been unable to work because of this and have gained 6 pounds in just a weeks time. Could this possibly be from my kidney. The last test showed 74% function of the remaining kidney. That was in January, It took two er visits with the chest pain for them to say it was bronchitis.
