Hi
SALT (Sodium chloride) is the most important point to consider. A salt free diet is difficult to maintain for long. Avoid high salt foods - pickles, chips, many preserved items. Avoid salt while serving. Reduce the salt in cooking, if possible
The other things that helps is to RELAX! - physical and mental relaxation - Yoga helps
Avoid tension - No 'HYPER"tension!
Regular exercise helps in the long run
Good luck

Hallo,
Drink 200 ml cold water at an empty stomach immediately wake -up from bed. Other beverages should be avoided next an hour period. 10 minutes later, do gentle walking exercise on open surface.
Then take your breakfast asusual tlme and menu with salt, tomarind, chilli free food.
At night , 10 minutes Meditation may apply every day before going to bed.
Think positively and relax the mind without tension.
Follow this advice and check your BP after 15 days .
GOOD DAY .

You are most likely mineral deficient and this is typically caused by low stomach acid. If you take antacids, this will deplete your minerals, especially calcium, magnesium, and zinc. Natto (fermented soy product) has Nattokynase that definitely lowers your blood pressure. Eat a little each day and within a few days you will notice a big difference. DO AVOID all soy products that are NOT fermented. The unfermented soy products are very bad for the body. Don't listen to the lunatics that tell you to eat low salt. That is just dumb and NOT good science. The key to salt is to eat "air dried sea salt" that contains potassium. It is the sodium - potassium balance that is key, not abstaining from salt. Don't eat the typical Morton table salt though, it contains lots of other harmful things, including sugar and the heavy metal aluminum that definitely affects your thyroid gland negatively. Don't stop eating good fats either. That is equally as dumb as eating low salt diet. Fats are required by the body and people eating low fat diets are suffering endocrine issues big time. The endocrine cells cannot be produced if you are deficient in fats. AVOID ALL VEGETABLE oils like soybean, canola, cottonseed, and corn oils. Those are very inflammatory and cause many problems with your arteries. EAT LOTS OF REAL BUTTER made from raw cream that comes from cows fed grass and NOT GRAINS. It nourishes your large intestines and is very good for you. Coconut oil is excellent source of good fats. Both Butter and Coconut oil do not require bile to break them down in the body. These medium chain fatty acids are excellent sources of energy. People who tell you not to eat them have been indoctrinated by the lunatics that still tell you to eat margarine. Margarines are made from hydrogenated oils and cause heart disease! Avoid eating SUGAR, GRAINS, and CORNSTARCH. These three things produce lots of Pattern 2 LDL cholesterol that produce plaque in the arteries. Pattern 1 LDL cholesterol is necessary and important to have in your blood stream. Don't let the doctors tell you that ALL LDL cholesterol is bad. That is BAD SCIENCE and advice from the ignorant that have been indoctrinated by drug companies making billions on bad advice. good luck to you

In addition to GERS, he suffers from COPD & uses a nebulizer with a regimine of Brovna, Sodium Chloride, followed by an Accapella device to elosen & cough up phlem. The pre-procedure instructions say to stop all meds 48 hrs before the procedure. But say inhalers are ok. My queation is this; Are the nebulizer medications OK to continue prior to this procedure or maybe just then sodium chloride. or Should he stop all together. Thank You, Dori

HI At my last appointment with my heart specialist the doctor increased my dose of Carvidilol (Coureg) to 12.5mg twice per day in the hope that this would decrease the chances of an AFIB event, in fact he said I can eat anything now. Unfortunately over Christmas I had two or three AFIB events each of which subsided after a few hours and where my pulse fortunately never reached over 124 ppm ( at least when I checked it ). The reason for the events was probably due to over indulgence in foods that may have had higher levels of sodium chloride at the same time as drinking a lot of wine and on one occasion brandy. On a normal day my pulse is 49 to 52 in the morning and seldom gets above 65 even after some fairly heavy physical activity. It does go up to mid to high 60 s if I have two or three glasses of wine. Normally of course I am on a very low salt diet as my wife and I make almost everything from scratch ourselves without adding sodium chloride. The reason I am writing is that early March we are traveling to Australia for a month followed by a month cruising back to the US. I don t know whether I will be able to get low or no salt food on board the ship. I m wondering whether an even higher dose of coureg might be advisable during the trip to counter the unknown levels of salt I will encounter on the voyage. Thanx Keith Jones

Can soaking in a hot bath with bath salts raise a person's blood pressure? I'm not talking about using it as a drug. I'm concerned about my elderly mother who had hypertension already but likes to soak in the smelly bath salts a couple times a week. Can the sodium chloride be absorbed through the skin enough to cause any significance?
