Lose weight if you are overweight, cut down on salt and saturated fats, do half an hour moderate exercise every day, not too much, just so that you feel warm and a bit sweaty, porridge and green veg are good, broccoli and cabbage, not too nice i know, but i would stay away from herbs, make sure you have regular check ups to measure it and if it goes above 140/85 on a regular basis then see the doctor. The treatment level is 162 for the systolic or top line so you have to be quite ill with it to get medication.

Hi,
thanks for query,
I do not think herbs or herbal medicine has any value to lower blood pressure.
Take low salt diet.
You have to go for antihypertensive medicines.
Ok and bye.

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
