My mother's blood pressure will not come down no matter what. We have tried many medications over the last several months. Her heart 'stress test' and her kidney function tests are OK, but the blood pressure stays around 180/110. Do you have any suggestions?
Have you tried any homeopathic remedies? There are certain natural companies that have herbal remedies for hypertension or high blood pressure. Try checking out a website called Botanical-Wisdom.com. They have a number of homeopathic remedies, specifically one called blood pressure control. This herbal supplement has been clinically tested to lower the bp of men and women from ages 30-70's. Not saying this is a cure to your problem, but it may definitely be a good way of controlling your bp without a heavy medication, or by just adding to it. Since it is natural, there are no side effects to this. There are studies for this nutraceutical under a different name, Hypertril, on their manufacturer's website unapproved link removed. Myself, I do research on mostly everything before I put it in my body. I hope this helps. Good luck to you and I wish you and your mother well.
Has she had a blood catecholamines test to rule out a pheochromocytoma? My husband had one, and they call it the 10% tumor because at least 10% of people will have a heart attack or stroke before they get diagnosed. Hard to control bp is one symptom.
