Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic

The basic food item to be restricted for a hypertensive patient is to restrict the amount of sodium intake. Sodium is used if various forms in food stuff, all sodium rich foods to be restricted to maintainthe normal blood pressure. Sodium bicarbonate ( soda ) used in idli, dosa batter, preservatives used in all processed foods , ready made foods, pickles, pappads, sauces, ketups,oily fried foods and packed fruit and vegetable juices.Try to use low sodium salt in cooking and no extra salt on table.Go in only for low sodium products which are easily available in the markets.Daily walking and avioding too much of stress also help in the control of blood pressure values.

hi, i am still having heart papiltations since last Thurday. I was diagnosed with tachycardia in March. What can i do? i tried drinking some baking soda and water a few minutes ago, but I read that baking soda can be dangerous, so I didn't drink all of it. This (heart palp.) is a bit scary for me. I am only 21. I have been drinking a lot of water though. I also took some apple cider approx 3 times today and yesterday. I had alot of dirrhea yesterday (mainly last night). I have been having a bunch of gas trapped inside of me too. I think it's a digestion (indigestion) and dehydration problem. Please help me.

my son was stung by a wasp on his index finger and another on his chest. almost 48 hours later his index finger is still red almost purple looking and very swollen and the spot on his chest is red and swollen about the size of a baseball. he says they hurt, but displays no other reactions. I have used Benadryl cream, Epsom salts, vinegar,. and baking soda past so far. the color seemed to lighten slightly on the chest but nothing else improved. should I see a doctor or is this normal. he is 7 and I don t recall him being stung by a wasp only a yellow jacket once but it was much better within 24 hours.
