Breathing to Quickly Drop Blood Pressure

While I don't know if this is capable of causing a lasting effect or long-term cure, I know it works for me to drop my BP, at least for a little while. Its something that I do, when I see my BP is a little too high for comfort. I, of course, closely monitor my BP to make sure it's staying in check and don't blindly trust anything.

Deep heavy breathing. Exhale everything from the lungs, then sharply/quickly inhale til lungs are full, quickly exhale til the lungs are empty, Do this a few more times, then on an inhale, hold it. It usually causes me to get lightheaded when I hold it, this is the feeling I'm aiming for. I Hold it for a good little bit. Then do it again. When I do this, I'm trying to completely saturate my blood with oxygen as much as I possibly can. I usually quickly feel very relaxed.

In my experience this is a good quick way to drop my BP a good 15-20 points off the top and at least 5 off the bottom and usually more than enough to get my BP in a safe range. Last time I did it, I was around 155/91 and dropped it to 131/84 before I stopped monitoring it, took me about 10 minutes to get there from the 155/91. May have went lower, I'm not sure.

Mukta Vati
Posted by dlwimages (Chapala, Mexico) on 01/08/2024

I have been getting very good results in lowering my BP with Ayurvedic Herbs, particularly Mukta Vati, a combination of Herbs which I ordered directly from India at a very low price. Last time I took my bp today it was114/75. I am delighted and am so glad I didn't listen to my doctor who suggested I take the drug Lisinopril.

Vera, You do sound healthy. And no, I am not trying to make it sound like there is something wrong you.

But I am also 73, and if I were you, and if I had your blood pressure, I would look into the possibility of hypothyroidism, as some day this info might save your life.

FYI, the greatest book on this subject is titled "Solved, The Riddle of Heart Attacks", Copyright 1976 by Broda O.Barnes, MD., published by Robinson Press Inc., Fort Collins, Colorado 80522.

I hope this will help.

Hello RB,

The blood pressure level for hypertension was lowered so that more people could be called "hypertensive" and be eligible for pharmaceutical intervention. This is another example of excellent marketing by pharmaceutical companies. Most of the researchers on expert panels determining the level of blood pressure considered hypertensive receive money from pharmaceutical companies. Medical journals are also dependent on pharmaceutical companies for their funding (advertising), so, they don't publish studies that show a lack of benefit. Traditionally, treatment was limited to people with blood pressure over 140/90 mm Hg. Now that the standards are lower, about half of the adult population is considered "hypertensive."

Warm regards,

I have never heard that blood pressure "normally" increases. I am 73 and my blood pressure fluctuates between normal 120 and low. As it always did.

Posted by RB (Somewhere in Europe) on 11/10/2023 68 posts

"The blood pressure increases every two years about one degree. The normal blood at thirty is approximately 125, and at sixty, it is 140."

This is a quote is from page 448 of the book titled Back to Eden, copyright 1937 by Jethro Kloss. He was herbalist, author, inventor, teacher, food scientist and lecturer. And I keep finding his book is well-researched and accurate in every little detail.

Fast forward 88 years, and when the blood pressure is between 120 to 129, it is called "prehypertension" and "elevated blood pressure" by the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association. Why?

Hot Cocoa

Samlaunch has stated:

"Hot Cocoa...will fix high blood pressure. I checked my resting pulse rate at 82-beats per minute resting last night. After drinking the hot chocolate, my pulse dropped to 62-beats per minute resting heart rate."

Since heart beats are *NOT* equivalent to blood pressure ... the number of heart beats does *NOT* indicate one's blood pressure.

In fact, Caffeine is actually known to *restrict* blood vessels (& thus the blood flow through blood vessels) & thus to *raise* blood pressure....

"Caffeine may cause a short...dramatic *increase* in...[BP], even if you don't have [HBP]. It's unclear what causes this spike.... The [BP] response to caffeine differs from person to person....

"Some...who regularly drink caffeinated beverages have a higher average [BP] than...those who drink none. Others who regularly drink caffeinated beverages develop a tolerance.... As a result, caffeine doesn't have a long-term effect on their [BP]...."

I had sciatica and my blood pressure was also elevated. I'm 38 and pretty healthy. I noticed my blood pressure was 125/80 which is pre-hypertension. I read potassium and calcium deficiency could be the cause. I started drinking coconut water daily and one day a week, I drink apple cider vinegar water. I went to the doctor today and my blood pressure was 119/80. My diet of meat and vegetables and carbs was the same. I got the happy belly brand.

Hi Joan,

Potassium chloride and sodium bicarbonate won't react to give you potassium bicarbonate.

I buy food grade potassium bicarbonate from a local source "The Sourcery" which is much cheaper than suppliers I find on eBay or Amazon.

The Sourcery - Potassium Bicarbonate

Every morning I mix 8 gm of potassium bicarbonate and 9 gm of vit C powder with more than half cup of water, and drink the whole lot in one go.

9 grams of vitamin C is my "bowel tolerance", to me about 15 minutes after consuming I will have to use the toilet once, and twice at most within the whole morning.

Posted by Joan (Vancouver, Cda) on 09/11/2023

Hi Tom,

Do you buy potassium bicarbonate powder from a healthfood store, or do you mix it yourself with potassium chloride and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda)?

How much potassium bicarbonate and how much vit C do you mix?

Posted by Tom 70 (Auckland, New Zealand) on 09/11/2023

Hi Vera,

I use food grade potassium bicarbonate powder and ascorbic acid (vitamin C) powder, spoon them in a cup and add some water (about 100 ml). It will fizz up, the amount of ascorbic acid is such that the 2 are just enough to neutralize each other. Add more water if not totally dissolve. I drink the whole lot in one go early in the morning empty stomach.

My heart beat rate and blood pressure are both normal at my age now 70. Years ago before that my heart rate was quite fast and blood pressure a little bit high, doctor did nothing for that maybe my case not too serious. BTW haven't seen doctor for nearly 10 years.

Posted by Vera (Beulah. CO) on 09/10/2023

Tom, that is excellent news. In what form do you take it? Do you space the dose over the course of the day?

Posted by Vera (Beulah, CO ) on 09/09/2023

Yes, I understand about potassium being safe at high dosages (meaning much higher than 99 mg). But eating it or drinking it is one thing, and popping dry pills all at once another. They say to sip the liquid potassium or sip with food. It could disturb the heart rhythm is what I have heard.

My friend wanted pills, so he is trying 2 99mg capsules, one enteric coated garlic pill, and a squirt of hawthorn tincture. Will report how he does in a few weeks. He is hoping to be able to go off Losartan.

Posted by Tom 70 (Auckland, New Zealand) on 09/09/2023

I have been taking 8 grams of potassium bicarbonate (3,200 mg elemental potassium) everyday to buffer ascorbic acid for over a decade, no any side effect I notice of. BTW I have also been taking blood test every 3 months for over 6 years and everytime test results came back ok. For me, even such high supplemental potassium did no harm at all.

Posted by Art (California) on 09/08/2023 2073 posts


The reason given for limiting potassium to 99 mg is discussed here :

https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Potassium-HealthProfessional/#:~:text=The use of potassium salts, be labeled with a warning.

Here is a relevant quote from the link :

' The use of potassium salts in certain medications has been associated with small-bowel lesions, causing obstruction, hemorrhage, and perforation [20, 74]. For this reason, the FDA requires some oral drugs providing more than 99 mg of potassium to be labeled with a warning. '

Regarding taking more than one 99 mg capsule of potassium at a time being safe or not, consider that one medium sized banana has 422 mg of potassium or more than 4 capsules of potassium. I don't think anyone has had a health issue from eating one medium sized banana unless it happened to be attached to a banana split and you ate it everyday as a supplement!

If you really want go for food with potassium, one medium baked potato has 940 mg of potassium and people eat those all the time.


Posted by Vera (Beulah, CO) on 09/08/2023

Art, I realized one more thing. I went to the health food store yesterday to find the right potassium for my friend, and they were all 99 mg. Except for one small bottle of liquid. At the price, it would be cheaper to get a prescription.

They tell you to dilute and and slowly sip liquid potassium. Which means that taking several (more than 2?) capsules at a time might be unsafe (could cause a heart disturbance). So maybe there is a good reason for not selling larger doses in a pill.

Posted by Bill (Philippines) on 09/07/2023

Concerning the correct dose of potassium, here is an article by a health professional(a qualified nutritionalist ) who recommends a standard per diem dose of potassium(RDA) of between 3,500 mgs and 4,700 mgs for adults. And yet the FDA still recommends selling paltry doses of only 99 mgs per day for adults where some people are led to mistakenly believe that 99 mgs of potassium citrate is the daily recommended dose. Something is very wrong here here, don't you think?

It's a research fact that a healthy body should always be able to easily regulate the intake and excretion of all the major electrolytes in your body -- that's calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium -- by controlling their absorption into the blood from your intestines as well as by regulating and controlling the excretion of any excess electrolyte minerals from your body. As long as your intestines (colon area) and kidneys are healthy your body should have no problems properly and safely regulating any excess potassium, sodium, magnesium or calcium in your body.

As a testament to the above, I've been regularly supplementing potassium citrate in amounts varying from 500 mgs to 1000 mgs per dose(as recommended by Ted) without any problems at all and I'm 73 y.o. And I usually always balance my potassium intake by also taking healthy and equivalent amounts sodium bicarbonate or sodium citrate as per Ted's alkaline advice. And it's pretty easy to buy the powdered form of potassium citrate in the US:

Potassium Citrate Powder -- from Purebulk

And from Ted's advice remember that 1/8 tspn of powder is approx 500 mg and 1/4 tspn is approx 1000 mgs. Easy peasy!

In my own experience, I've also found that alot of the so-called advice from the FDA and even from drugs-funded research can be deliberately misleading or even grossly inaccurate. If anyone really thinks that our bodies only require 99 mgs potassium citrate per day then I wish you alot of luck because you are going to need it if you believe every single piece of advice that comes from the FDA.

I've known for well over 20 years that the FDA is the main rep and sales agent for all the drugs and vaccines sold on the market today. And guess what?? -- The drugs companies own US law as well. And why is that? Two reasons really. First, most middle and high level management personnel in the FDA come directly from the drug companies. Any bias there, ya think? Second reason -- the FDA outright owns the law -- heck, why mess around? -- The FDA own the US govt as well! That's why all FDA policies are so heavily protected by US law and have been for decades now.

And concerning the purchase of potassium citrate at 1000 mg or greater per dose, for the last 17 years or so I've purchased my potassium carbonate or potassium citrate as bulk powder direct from two certified US chemical companies that are based in the Philippines, whereby I'm able to purchase 500 mgs potassium citrate(USP Grade) for about $10.00. I usually take 1/4 tspn of both potassium citrate and sodium bicarbonate dissolved and mixed in a glass of water. And sometimes I also add 1/8 tspn Sodium Carbonate -- as Ted's Carbicarb remedy -- for higher alkalinity. Been doing that regularly for about 17 years now and it's kept me healthy.

Ted's Alkaline Remedies

So please bear in mind and remember that if you purchase the tablet form of potassium citrate then it has to be 99 mg per tablet as per FDA inspired US law, but if you purchase the powdered form of potassium citrate in bulk then you can happily buy it in tons with no dose restrictions at all .. .

Thank you for the helpful reply, Vera!

Hi Art. I believe he got one tablet from a family member who has a prescription. I have heard there are also potassium citrate liquids, but by prescription also. He's planning to try the supplements available for the time being. If it turns out to be too many pills, he'll ask for a scrip.

Posted by Art (California) on 09/06/2023 2073 posts


Could you ask your friend where they got potassium citrate (PC) in 1000 mgs? I ask because I have only ever seen PC in 99 mg capsules as that is all the FDA allows manufacturers to use.


Posted by Vera (Beulah, CO) on 09/06/2023

I have a friend who at times has very high BP readings, in the 190s. He heard that potassium can lower it. I came over the other day, his BP reading that afternoon was 143. He took a potassium citrate tablet that has just under a gram of potassium in it. It was a fizzy tablet, dissolved in a glass of water. Sipped it over about 20 minutes. Retested himself after an hour an a half, and his BP was 117! Amazing.

Here is a Harvard Health article that shows potassium works.

Ayurvedic Mukta Vati
Posted by Linden (Santa Fe, NM) on 07/26/2023

After awhile, Carditone did not work well for my HBP. I was lucky to find a reference to Mukta Vati online. It is an herbal Ayurvedic formula and very strong. It worked for me within a couple of days with BP about 150/100 going down to 120/80. I have been taking half of a half of the recommended dose for several years.

Ivy's Mukta Vati is the stronger product but Divya Mukta Vati, more or less the same herbs, also works for me in larger doses.

If you have mysterious high blood pressure even eating right and exercising etc. check your diet for foods that are MAOIs, even mild MAOIs. There is a link between certain genetic anomalies and MAOIs causing high blood pressure.


There is also research suggesting caffeine is dangerous to the heart and blood vessels during exercise, as well, because it constricts blood vessels when they need to be relaxed.

I prayed these past few nights that Father God would teach me what I needed to know to heal my husband's heart condition. My husband drinks tea of green tea, turmeric, meadowsweet, and ginger every single morning. They are all MAOIs. He has had high blood pressure for years. He resumed taking turmeric capsules the other day and his blood pressure went from 130/90 ish to over 200/100 again in just one day. He has not taken the turmeric capsules today and it is back below 200/100. Thank and praise to Jesus for answering my prayers.

Old post but my ankles got swollen when I was living on aspirin, antacids, and coffee. Quit that and they are no longe swollen. But a bit stiff and numb. Garlic and onion powder both do wonders for that. Peanuts and niacinamide (the flushing kind), too. Possibly too much aluminum or kidney damage from the aspirin? Dunno.

Thank you for the feedback on NAC, it is helpful!

I am glad to hear that NAC alone is helping to control your blood pressure. Unfortunately for me, NAC by itself was not enough and ultimately I needed both L-Arginine and L-Lysine to have good control of my blood pressure, but I hated to have to take all three supplements multiple times per day to control my blood pressure.

I have since found an herbal supplement (Carditone) that works even better for me and this one is working very well for me at just one caplet every third night instead of one caplet every night as recommended on the label.

I reported on Carditone here:


From reports and reviews, it doesn't work for everyone, but appears to work for the majority of people who have tested and or used it, but I don't think any supplement or medication works for everybody.


Posted by HisJewel (New York) on 09/20/2022

Hello, Art,

I was looking for something that I already had in the house to help lower my blood pressure (hypertension) when I saw your Arginine/NAC post. Thank you. I had no idea NAC regulated blood pressure. And it did so without the use of Arginine. I took two 600mg NAC before dinner (My blood pressure usually goes up when I eat). My blood pressure did not go up. I was surprised. As a matter of fact, I looked a the blood pressure machine and said, "you're beautiful." This has been war!

Last week my blood pressure was hitting around 179/100. I had tried everything that usually worked to lower blood pressure at least a few hours, but nothing would regulate it. My doctor has never prescribed blood pressure pills for me, a person's blood pressure had to be steadily high for her to put you on them.

A couple of nights, I wrestled with my blood pressure all night long. It would slowly creep back up. What has helped in the past better than anything was water-pills, that's all night work.

I have taken NAC before, I heard that NAC is the precursor of Glutathione. I have also heard that Glutathione was the fountain of youth. Therefore, I bought some and used it from time to time. I had no idea that it was affecting my blood pressure one way or the other.

During the last ten years, I have used up maybe three or four bottles of NAC. I never even realized it was doing anything until someone said it helps with COVD symptoms. When I Checked Earth Clinic for hypertension help, I saw where you said it helps lower blood pressure.

The NAC regulated my blood pressure the same day and hour, and it stayed good all night. I will not be taking NAC along with other supplements that might lower blood pressure; the pressure may go to low. Today I took it at the same time as yesterday, I also took Vanadyl Sulfate to help regulate blood sugar and my blood pressure dipped to 105/57. This has happened a few times in the past, but I never knew why.

It's just nice to know all about what you are taking. I have looked at several articles online about NAC. Most of them failed to mention that it helps lower blood pressure.


I am sure people should check with their doctor about this supplement because of possible side effects. But it is certainly a great help until you get there.


White Cumin Seeds, Fennel Seeds, Green Cardamom
Posted by Usman N. (Columbia, MD) on 09/18/2022

White Cumin seeds, Fennel Seeds, Green Cardamom for Hypertension (Blood Pressure)

Found this protocol highly effective. My age 65 yrs. had Cardiac arrest in April 2022. Given medications to regulate BP. As a result, my uric acid jumped, which I have normalized by taking daily 4 tablespoon of ACV in a glass of water 3 times a day.

For normalizing BP, I take 1 tsp of white cumin seeds, 1 tsp of fennel seeds and 2 whole cardamoms. Put them in 1 cup of water. Bring the water to boil. When about 1/2 cup of water is left. Drink it as tea with breakfast. You can drink it warm or cold and interestingly it is very tasty. My regular BP use to be 125-130/80-85 using 50mg of Metoprolol. In a matter of few days/1 week, BP dropped to 90's/60's. Dr reduced the dosage to 25 mg.

After reducing medication, BP is around 100/65. It is important that you have a good BP monitor machine to regularly checking your BP. I will experiment by taking this tea twice a day or eliminating my medicine and see the effect on my BP. As I said earlier, this protocol is highly effective. I hope this info helps.

BP Readings Over the Decades
Posted by RB (Somewhere in Europe) on 07/29/2022 68 posts

When my grandmother passed away in 1973, she was 83 years old. Remarkably, her (systolic) blood pressure was 180 (mm Hg), however she was not worried, because her doctors told her (in 1970) that her blood pressure was "normal for her age". In 1970 her medical doctors said, "Blood pressure increases every year, by about one degree. The normal (systolic) blood pressure at age 20 is approximately 120. At age 40 it is approximately 140. And at age 80 it is approximately 180. So, for her age 80, her blood pressure of 180 was normal.

Fast forward 50 years, and I wonder if you guys have noticed how today's medical schools and medical doctors want us to be on drugs, for the rest of our lives, if our systolic blood pressure is higher than 130. However, can we really rely on them, when they also keep making false claims like "Cholesterol is bad for you", and "Egg yolks are bad for you"... and, when they also misdiagnose many medical conditions, including cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, urinary tract infection, ear infection, and stroke?

1) I've always wondered why my grandmother was never medicated.

2) Further, how do we know for sure, that the lower limit of hypertension should be 140, as opposed to 180 mm Hg?

3) Further, are you guys convinced that the best tools for the management of hypertension are provided by Big Pharma?

4) Well, as to my body, it's going to be my choice, and I'm going to stick with natural remedies.

5) I hope this will help somebody!

Posted by RB (Somewhere in Europe) on 07/28/2022 68 posts

I started noticing my blood pressure was no longer an issue whenever all the following three statements were true: 1) I was on a low carb, high fat (Atkins) diet, 2) I ate up to 100 g of protein per meal, and 3) My protein was from at least 2 sources, e.g. eggs and cheeses.

Then I looked it up; https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/20554123/ says, "proteins... can lower blood pressure in persons with essential hypertension... Deficiency in consumption of crucial nutrients such as proteins from meat origins... may underlie the etiology of the clinical course of hypertension."

Further, https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/12544662/ says, "in epidemiological studies, an increased intake of protein has been associated with lower blood pressure."

I hope this will help!

Posted by Art (California) on 06/12/2022 2073 posts


Sorry, I forgot to answer your question.

Low blood pressure or hypotension can be dangerous also.

https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/low-blood-pressure/symptoms-causes/syc-20355465#:~:text=Low blood pressure might cause, pressure can be life-threatening.

Keeping things in context is important also because there are some people who just have low blood pressure as their norm. For those people, it might serve them well to wear a bracelet that identifies them as normally hypotensive. The reason being is that if they were ever to end up in the emergency room unconscious, the attending physician may interpret the abnormally low blood pressure as a symptom of some other serious condition and use an inappropriate treatment on the patient.

As far as allowing or accepting higher blood pressure readings with age, my opinion would be to stay as close to the normal range as possible, within reason. I think Carditone or beet root powder can do that for the great majority of people with side effects that could be significantly less than some blood pressure medications.

Hi Michael,

The best supplement I have found for hypertension is Carditone which is working very well for myself and some friends. Like everything, it probably won't work for everyone, but I found, for my friends and myself, that it did better than NAC/Arginine/Lysine, prescription medication, beet root powder, magnesium/potassium and others.

Hello Art! Such wonderful work you have been doing on High Blood Pressure over a long time. So many people could benefit from your persistent research. A HUGE number of people around the world suffer from HBP and a BIG chunk of them don't even realize that they have it and are setting themselves up for BIG problems later in life. Their diets and lifestyle could probably do with considerable modification, thus hopefully avoiding the later use of the drugs you mention! The top THREE offending populations in the World are now (in descending order of seriousness): USA, Mexico and New Zealand!! WOW, we are members of a pretty, exclusive club! But, one theory I have heard espoused in "Medical Circles" is that a slight elevation of BP is permissible with each passing, successive decade as one gets older! Some of our doctors see patients with LOW blood pressure and, naturally, that is a concern also! I am just wondering what your thoughts are on this and whether you have written about this at some stage and I have missed it? Wishing you well. Cheers from Down Under

I should probably ask EC to take that post down.

It continued working for me for a long time but it also reduced my Lysine /Arginine ratio which can tend to make you more susceptible to certain viruses and that is not good for people who have herpes or shingles and in my case it caused me to catch one cold after another before I finally figured out what was going on. Then I started supplementing L-Lysine to rebalance the Lysine/Arginine ratio which resolved my cold issues and I kept taking that trio to maintain blood pressure in range, but eventually decided that it was not practical or efficient, imo, to take three supplements twice a day to control blood pressure.

So I stopped the trio and found something else that I only take one pill once a day and it works very well. As a matter of fact I will be writing about it as soon as my testing is done with two friends who are testing it themselves and then I can recommend it on EC. So far, I am impressed, but I want my friends to finish their testing before I recommend it on EC.


Arginine, NAC

Hi Art: just curious to know if your Nac/Arginine combo is still working for your high bp. I noticed on an old post since 2012 that you started using it. Thanks in advance for an early response .

I painted my wrists with Lugol's iodine and my blood pressure dropped almost immediately from 145/103 to 134/93. Thank you very much.

I am just wondering if you have to keep at this or does your blood pressure go to normal and stay that way?

Gloria, what a great response. I totally agree with it. People are so worried about natural remedies and overdosing -- not possible, but won't have a second thought about over-drinking, taking prescription drugs, eating too many fried foods, etc.

I have had hypertension for many years and am on medication.

I have Covid for the last 4 weeks and was recovering. I was put on oxygen as they believed I had pneumonia. As I started getting better I realized I didn't need the oxygen during the day but only at night.

I then started measuring my blood pressure in the morning and found that if I used a 1 liter setting and slept with that my blood pressure in the morning was lower than not using it. ( I stopped taking medication and monitored the blood pressure, ready to take medication again if it seemed to high.)

Also I started taking cinnamon with rolled oats for breakfast most days and it seems to be lower still. My normal is typically 153 / 94 but today it was 135/87.

So give a little oxygen (use less than 1.5 liters at night) a try.
