I inherited high BP from both of my parents, but do not like what the BP meds do to me...I tried several for years, none of them worked and the side affects were terrible.
I now take garlic pills (or cook with fresh garlic) and a habanero tincture, which my herbalist taught me to make at home. I also put a teaspoon of fresh ground cinnamon in yogurt daily. I'm happy to say that I no longer have high BP! I have always followed low sodium eating because I grew up that way...but yes, cutting back on anything in a box, bag or can (which all contain high levels of sodium) will help.
Drink lots of water...the more water you drink, the less water you retain. I also sometimes drink Dandelion tea, which is great in helping you to not retain water, but to be honest, the tea tastes like butt!!! Not that I know what butt tastes like LOL If you want to try it, add honey to sweeten it. Honey is natural and your body process it better than artificial sweeteners.
Hope the above info helps! Let me know if you want the easy and inexpensive recipe for the habanero.

When I was diagnosed with high blood pressure, the doctor could not tell me why I developed it. I am in great shape, exercise every other day, I don t smoke or drink. I have a very good diet and have never been big on salt, yet I developed it anyway. I am on medication which is not currently working, I don t know what the problem is.
Hi, it had been few years since i had my presusre taken. I did it last month with a reading showing 144 over 92. I felt that it wa snoy good hence have been jogging/excercising to reduce this naturally including reducing salt intake. Today the reading was 170 over 82. I can see that my resting pressure has decreased but the sys pressure has gone up. What else can i do that does involve medications?

Dear colleaggues, I'm Ingrid Hilman, MD, 58 years. had my stenting on 17 Feb, 3 stents in LAD and RCA.
Since 2 weeks ago, I develop severe headaches, esp during the iningt or when I wake up in the morning and also palpitation (heart rate > 90). I feel weak during palpitation. I do not have hypertension (my BP is between 90-110 and 70-80). I do not have obesity, smoking habits, my lab is pretty good only LDL 100.
Is this because of the herbresser that I take 3 times a day?
Other drug that I take;
- Aspirin 1 x 100 mg
- Plavix 1 x 75 mg
- Lipitor 1 x 10 mg.
Appreciate your inputs on my above complaints. Thank you very much

I am a 25 yr old female that has recently lost 70 pounds and suffers from pcos. I am off all the bp medicines I was taking, and have been on a gluten free diet since 4/21/11 b/c I am allergic to wheat. I have been getting dizzy, lightheaded, and have a fast heart rate and low blood pressure when standing or sitting up. my heart rate is usually in the 60 -70 range when resting, and it's been in the high 90 - 100 range while resting. The dizziness started Sunday 6/19/11 all of a sudden, and I have kept track of my BP and symptoms since Sunday. I get this intense pressure in my head, and the get dizzy, and my heart will race when I start to feel yucky, I have trouble breathing, when my heart rate is up this high for no apparent reason. My BP will be 93/62 and HR 101 standing, or it can be 114/65 and HR 80 a few minutes later.. but if I go from lying down to sitting, it will be elevated, then it elevates when I stand, if I lay down everything is fine.. the pressure in my head goes away, the dizzyness goes away, and the HR goes back to normal... I have a shunt in place for hydrocephalus, my first shunt was placed at the age of two weeks, and first revision was done 4/5/2010. I want to know what is causing this fluctuation in BP and the dizziness, and fast HR...thanks
