I do not know of any that do not carry a side effect. What I do know is that what ever treatment that the doctor gives to you, it is very important that you maintain a balanced diet so as to maintain minerals that might be lost as a result of the treatment. Also a balanced diet will help to regulate your blood pressure. It is noteworthy that salt, which is very important in your diet should be used in moderation. Your vegetables can be cooked without salt if done in very small amount of water. The following link will give you more information about a balanced diet:;_ylt=AkbB85dd3wrQDb13aW.lRfzty6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20090205090955AABLJ4B Exercise is also very important, even if it takes the form of brisk walking.
