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

In a recent medical exam, my BP was 142/92 and my pulse rate was 63. My SpO2 was measured twice (three minutes apart) and went from 96% to 93%. I had no medical history to report to the doctor. I was basically starting fresh with my healthcare. She said my vitals were normal and stable. She said my BP was likely due to my back pain (that led to the visit in the first place). But if my pressure was high, why was my rate low?? And, what is the significance of the drop in SpO2? Thanks.

I have a rash in my groin and my body is always itchy. For about 2 years I had rashes on both my feet. It seems to have cleared now but I still have to apply dipresone everyday. I take medication for high blood pressure - Micardi Plus, Zanidip and Spiractin. Are any of these causing my rash problems?

I feel kind of silly asking this, but my heart rate (resting) has been elevated all day -- ranging from 107 early am, up and down from 130 - 180 most of the day. I've been having episodes like this for several months, but not this bad or long lasting. I guess I'm just not sure what to do. Bp avgs 120/78 - 130/88.
