[YEA]  For many years, I would wake up at night, with a rapidly beating heart, gasping for breathe, etc. I have tried many remedies and again, over the years had developed high blood pressure perhaps, as a result of poor respiration at night, kidney and gallstones. Minor surgery for an impacted kidney stone and then major infirmities probably as a result of the surgery, antibiotics, HBP meds, and infections. Found your site, and I have started using food-grade H2O2 again orally and through inhalation, also extra virgin coconut oil, iodine, and cider vinegar. Within 2 weeks, HBP gone, no liver/GB pain or distress, and a major increase in energy and a returning sense of well-being. Sleeping through the night like a baby. Please be aware that I tried EDT suppositories and ionic footbaths for relief from toxicity, with only an increase in distress. I credit my body's healing to the H202, cider vinegar, coconut oil, iodine, and coffee enemas to eliminate the toxins. I truly appreciate this website and my return to health, after all these years of less than optimal functioning. I had had a normal body temp of 96.8 for years and after initiated Lugol's iodine footpainting, within this time period as well, my normal body temp is up to 98 from below 97, which is also a really good thing. Thanks to all of you for all your suggestions, and I wish this level of body optimization for all of you who suffer needlessly. God Bless You All.

Hi Jo An, How did you inhale H2O2, did you dilute it first and what kind of Iodine you take?

[YEA]  I use pharmacy strength hydrogen peroxide -- drops in glass of water twice a day (about 7 drops thus far). My moderately elevated blood pressure reduced to normal, according to my doctor's records, without use of drugs. How long should I continue to pursue this treatment? Should I continue longer or cycle on and off in some way?

[YEA]   I had an injury to my tongue from biting it. The dentist recommended using a product called Peroxyl, which is just a flavored 1.5% hydrogen peroxide solution. It helped the injury to heal, but as a by-product my blood pressure was lowered significantly. I did go beyond recommended usage. How much hydrogen peroxide is enough and how is dosage determined? It is easy to find food grade H2O2 at 3%.

Iodine

[YEA]  I started taking Lugol's Solution (10% Potassium Iodine and 5% Iodine) and within 4 weeks my blood sugar has gone from 7.1 to 4.9. I am not doing or taking anything else so it has to be the Lugol's. My blood pressure has also come down to the extent that I am seriously considering coming off my BP medication. It was routinely 145-155 over 90-96 and now is down to routinely 115-120 over 68-72.


Kefir

[YEA]  It is suspected that High Blood Pressure in many cases are associated with well below normal level of Nitric Oxide generating probiotic bacteria in the digestive system. Nitric oxide is generated by these bacterias from the food we eat. Nitric oxide will join blood stream and dilate all stiff blood vessels in the body. Kefir contains nitric oxide generating probiotic bacteria.

One lady in my town took one cup of Kefir in the moring on empty stomach for 8 weeks. The lady was suffering high blood pressure and was Diabetes 2. After this Kefir routine, her blood pressure is now normal and she is not diabete now. Another man who was suffering from high blood pressure did the same Kefir routine. His blood pressure is normal now.

Just because this Kefir routine cleared two people from high blood pressure problem, it will be hard to think it will work for everyone. But one can try this Kefir routine since there is nothing to loose.


Lemongrass Essential Oil

[YEA]  Hi, I started using lemongrass essential oil for my high blood pressure. I put a drop on my wrist and rub it on the other wrist and then I put a small bit of coconut oil on my heart area and one drop on lemongrass oil. The lemongrass oil may burn sensitive skin, but the coconut oil stops the burn. I have high blood pressure and I did this 1 hour before my Dr appt, my BP was 118/80. I am convinced that this is the reason my pressure was normal.


Low Carb Diet

[YEA]  I learned years ago that a low carb diet will dramatically lower high blood pressure quickly, usually within 12 hours! You will know it is working when you notice you are urinating more frequently. I know the low carb lifestyle has been controversial, but I have proven the benefits to myself for years. Also, acid reflux/heartburn will disappear while on a low carb diet!

Hi Miriam.

I have been posting here for years now. Somewhere on here, I said that I believed sugars ( Carbs ) contributed as much to Higher blood pressure as does sodium. I also find that diet effects my blood pressure by as much as 15 to 20 points.

So yea, I think you might be on the right track about those carbs.

I think the key is to stay hydrated, but keeping the kidneys flushed. Asparagus extract can help keep kidneys flushed also.


Lugol's Iodine

[YEA]  I began taking 2 drops daily of Lugol's iodine. Within 2 weeks my blood pressure dropped from 135/82 to normal ranges I.e. 120/72 and some days even lower. Also ingesting a tsp of diatemaceous earth but since I was inconsistent with the later, I must credit the iodine. PTL!


Lycopene

[YEA]  Lycopene for High Blood Pressure: Lycopene in cooked tomatoes is supposed to be very good for high blood pressure. Apparently you get the most benefit from cooked tomatoes and apparently that's why a Mediterranean diet is supposed to be so good for you. I wondered whether you can buy it in tablet form and found that these tablets are available from health food stores.


Magnesium

[YEA]  I've been fighting pre-hypertensive blood pressure for 2 years. I refuse to go on the "legal" drugs and have been trying Chinese medicine and herbs for the last two years.

Nothing made sense of me having 140-135/90-85 blood pressure. I eat organic, I don't eat red meat, I avoid GMO and chemical foods I go to the gym and run 5 days a week.

By chance I came across Dr Carolyn Dean on youtube and after listening to her video, I bought elemental magnesium as well as magnesium oil.

I started taking about 600mg a day including using the spray I would say 400 pill 200 spray and within two weeks my Blood pressure went down to 120/80 for the first time in a few years.

I realized I had never been eating healthy, because eating healthy doesn't mean eating greens, juicing and avoiding red meats, eating healthy means eating greens & juicing food sources that are mineral'y rich and not depleted as well as avoiding red meats.

[YEA]  I have recently found myself with high blood pressure. In experimenting twice now, magnesium has done a bang up job in lowering my blood pressure.

One hour ago, it was 158/96. I immediately drank water with one heaping tsp of Calm magnesium powder. Now, it's 135/83. That's a huge decrease!

I have order Magnesium Glycinate, because if I keep using Calm (which is Magnesium Citrate), it will soften my stools too much.

[YEA]  I've recently been battling high blood pressure, and did all of the things that are recommended (lower salt, increased potassium) to balance my electrolytes.

Although my blood pressure improved, it still bounced around inconsistently. I finally figured out what was missing: increased magnesium.

The RDA for magnesium is 400mg/day and my diet wasn't providing me with anything even close to that number. As a result, my blood pressure has now stabilized at 120/80 (and below). Hope this helps someone!

My husband has high cholesterol and has been on Bezafibrate for about eighteen years. He could not tolerate statins. He had sleep problems for a number of years. We decided to come off the tablets and he has slept very well since.

His blood pressure has now gone up to around 150/94. His heart reate is irregular and very slow ranging from 38 to 50 beats a min. I know statins and fibarates deplete q10. I have given him supplements. Also Garlic, fish oils, Licethin and natural sterol supplements. I am not so concerned about cholesterol. However I am concerned about Blood pressure and low irregular heart rate. I am afraid of heart failure. Does anyone know whether magnesiun could help? I know some use it for rapid heart problems. Also would hawthorn help? I do not want to make things worse for him. Any suggestion much welcome.

Yes Magnesuim will help his heart and blood pressure. He needs to see a heart doctor for help. I speak from having same problems. Believe me he don't want to wait till his heart jumps out of rhythm.

Best of luck to you and your husband,

Geneva

Christine, to strengthen the heart, make sure you add Selenium and Vit-E to the CoQ10 as they work best together; and it's also recommended to swap the CoQ10 for the better form ---Ubiquinone, especially as one ages. *A note on Selenium, England is notorious for high Sel soil levels which have threatened cattle & sheep herds, and hastened tooth decay in humans, so I would take less than the recommended dose.

As for herbs, look for an herbal combination which contains as many of the fallowing as possible: Hawthorn, Cayenne, Ginger, Garlic, Ginko Biloba.

A dash of Sea Salt in 1/4-1/2 cup water 2 daily is good for HBP.

Hope this helps and good luck.

I believe the better form of CoQ10 is Ubiquinol, especially as one ages. Ubiquinone is the one you don't want.

[YEA]  Hi , I was just following up on Naturalone from Stillwater, Mn, Usa idea about Magnesium, and high blood pressure, as my HBP has rocket ted in the last few months.

Hi Dennis, I just wanted to comment on your post. You mentioned that at first, the ACV appeared to be helping, but then quickly took a turn for the worse. When you mentioned esophageal reflux and anxiety, I immediately thought Magnesium. In addition to the hypertension, both of these conditions can be directly related to low Mg. levels. Not to mention that your medications also contribute to Mg. wasting.

I'm not suggesting that you ditch your meds, but I would highly recommend that you consider adding Mg. into your daily routine.

I had changed my diet, cutting out alot of different foods (I went Paelo) to see what might be triggering my multiple inflammation problems. So I thought I would do a search on Magnesium rich foods, which turned out to be most of what foods I had cut out, such as beans and soy products! Within 24 hours my blood pressure had come down, just adding 1/4 teaspoon of Epsom salts to the cider vinegar bicarb mix, which I try to have three times a day. Also it has cured the constipation that has also been a problem recently. I have been trying to keep protein down to a minimum and it is very interesting how little you really need. Christina

i wanted to ask sally_oh from Escazu, San Jose, Costa Rica, what kind of magnesium (citrate, chloride, etc..) her husband takes for his high blood pressure. I am having some struggles with the same issue and i need some help. I am taking the acv (2Tablespoons x 3 daily) and am finding it beneficial but am still experiencing some elevated pressure.

Re: http://www.earthclinic.com/cures/blood_pressure.html#TED

10/10/2009: Sally_oh from Escaz˙, San JosÚ, Costa Rica replies: "Funny, in 2009 my husband has high blood pressure so we've been doing lots of research. There is a lot now written that salt is not the culprit and that the no-salt is actually harmful! We use real salt, great stuff.

And my husband manages his blood pressure with 1000mg of magnesium a day: 500 in the am, 500 before bed. Works like a charm."

What is the best and most absorbable magnesium supplement? If no one can list name, then what form is best to take: powder, liquid, tablet....?


EC: Magnesium Oil (aka Transdermal Magnesium Therapy) is our pick: http://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/transdermal-magnesium-therapy.html
