I too am always looking for natural ways to lower my high blood pressure. I'm a 50 year old man, and it is really frustrating having to take all these medications. I have had some success with exercise and cutting back on salt, but I really could use some more ideas.
Hey guys! Have either of you tried increasing your whole grains? Oatmeal is amazing for this from what I understand..I have been doing a lot of research because I'm worried about my kiddo...and there was a 12 week study of people who ate oatmeal every morning for breakfast and 73% supposedly no longer needed their bp meds..which is amazing! Fish is also very good for you for many reasons, but is known to lower bp because of the omega 3 fats and anti-inflammatories naturally found inside of them. (FDA recommends 2 six ounce servings per week of cold water fish per week, and of course that you try to keep it organic if possible.) Broccoli and legumes are very good for your heart...oh and for snacks things like fresh berries, and pistachios are great. Docs recommend 1/3 cup pistachios per day. Good luck!!
Thanks for your answers, I have now lost 23 lbs. and lowered my bp. I sought the help of a hypnotist to release the wieght and it worked and is still working. It's so exciting to get back into my clothes and lose the belly.I'm eating healthy and exercising, and I feel great.
This is very interesting. I did not know that pistachios could lower blood pressure. I have started doing 1 tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar a day. I dont know if will help but I read that it did.
