If you go to a doctor he will put you on medication. Once on medication you may need it forever to control the High blood Pressure. Sometimes they take you off when you ask if you can prove you are controlling it without meds. It is a vicious circle once you start meds.
So the best way to control it is naturally. Here are some ways:
1. Regular exercise. Walking is excellant so is swimming.
2. Better Diet. Eat more fruits and veggies and less fat, meat, and sugar. Eatting too much regularly is also a contributer.
3. More Quality Sleep. Your body needs 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep per night. If you are not getting adequate sleep your body suffers along with your blood pressure.
4. Reduce Stress. Stress is one of the biggest factors in High Blood Pressure. Your body produces too much adrenaline and cortisol (the flight or fight syndrome) which affect your whole body. Meditation will help or nature walks or reading or just sitting in your backyard relaxing.
5. Vitamin, Mineral Supplements and some Herbs. If your body is not getting the right combo of these you will not be in the best of health and the blood pressure is one of the first indicators. Talk to a Nutritionist and Herbalist. Some common Herbs (natural) can lower blood pressure. I highly recommend taking Liquid supplements and green food and mangesium and calcium.
6. Reduce Salt / Sodium intake. Salt is in most everything. Read the labels and dont add salt. If you eat out often you are getting triple the salt you would get if fixing food at home.
7. Drink more Water. You must get 8-10 glasses a day in normal weather. More in hot weather. This flushes the body.
All of these in combination will lower the Blood Pressure. If you genes make you prone to high readings it may take a bit more work but you can still do it naturally. If you take meds the Drug companies make money and they along with the doctors do not want you to get well. That is how they make a living.

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.
