There is this news at Science Daily http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/03/070312160937.htm Here's a copy of what it says at the beginning. This is very interesting, I think:
According to a first-of-its-kind randomized study conducted by researchers from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, a widely practiced, stress-reducing meditation technique can significantly reduce the severity of congestive heart failure. The study appears in the Winter 2007 issue of Ethnicity & Disease. "The results of this study indicate that transcendental meditation can be effective in improving the functional capacity and quality of life of congestive heart failure patients

I had been running a high blood pressure for two days! I usually have borderline blood pressure which is about 130/90. Anyways I had tried acv, bicarbonate, sea salt, and lemon juice.
FINALLY! I wasreading about dehydration so I decided to try mineral water! And then I decided to add some blackstrap molasses to it for the extra added minerals. And voila! Went from 150:110 to 132/94 in 2 hours! I plan on consuming this every day to see how it works and makes me feel! Just wanted to share for others in case it would work for someone else!
Recipe : 1/2 tbsp in 12oz of mineral water ( I used gerolsteiner because it has a lot of mag bicarb and calcium bicarb )
Using Aloe Vera for High blood pressure. You can buy Aloe Vera juice (99.8%) by the gallon at Walmart to drink. The bottle recommends 4-8 ounces with a meal.
Apple Cider Vinegar. Try drinking 2 tablespoons of ACV diluted in 8 ounces of water every day.
Lowering blood pressure means you are dilating constricted arterys that relieve pressure. With that in mind search for products that can dilate and look at which ones are incompatible with your medications.
Any one (1) of these is beneficial to lower BP.
Omega3 Fish oil, Ginkgo Biloba, Garlic, Celery, Taurine, Arginine, Hawthorn, Niacin Vitamin B-3, vitamin D, Vitamin E, Zinc, Ginseng, Citrulline, Alpha-Linolenic Acid, COQ10, VITAMIN B6. Follow doses as directed.
Don't use salt/sodium. Turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, and pepper raise blood pressure. Avoid foods that constrict arteries.
My boyfriend has had high blood pressure for a long long time. Recently, his medication is making him light headed and have adverse effects. He works out daily (military man), we eat an almost vegetarian diet (Only meat is chicken, rarely), we always eat garlic, very healthy foods and spices, basically everything I've read on websites he has done and his lifestyle is as healthy as can be. This man hardly had any fat on him, and theres no major stressors in his life right now. Are there any other remedies someone can think of for him to try? It seems his meds aren't helping but are in fact making him feel worse and it's worrying me. I always tell him about holistic medicine and I want him to try something new. Thanks

This is kinda long, but, three years ago I started the leptin diet. I have started using coconut oil (3 tbsp per day) as well as cooking, ACV at night with honey, 1 tbsp molasses per day. Before I started doing this I had just cleaned up my diet, my bp ran 100 or lower/60. Now that I have incorporated the above regimen, my blood pressure is running 136/73. What is up with this? I thought getting healthier was good for me.
As a truck driver, I have to keep my blood pressure below 140/90. to get my 2 year med card. My last physical I was way high 180/110. Had to take some time off. Went to doctor got on blood prs pills 20 mg of lisinopril plus a water pill hctz 12.5mg. This worked, and got it down to about 136/86. but he would only give me the pills for three months. The story is longer, but I'll end it here.
Have got it down to 122/76 using apple cid vin. and aloe vera drink. Hibiscus tea. Garlic. Cayenne pepper. My son is in the med field and when he took my blood prs, he wanted to take it again becuse he could not believe I got it down that low without the meds. I drink the aloe vera out of the one gallon jug I got from walgreens. The apple cid vin, I pour into some apple drink. Neither of these tastes good, but if you can get it down its worked for me. Good luck. I will be donating to this site, beats paying the rip off doctor.
High Blood Pressure Remedy: Try drinking two 12oz glasses of Hibiscus Tea. Try finding the organic flowers as this is more potent. In addition to the tea, watch your diet and cook with plenty garlic, cayenne pepper, and curry. All of these herbs are excellent for maintaining normal BP levels. Potassium and Magnesium are good too, you can eat a banana every morning with a cup of oatmeal and take the magnesium supplement right before bed. Last but not least, a brisk 30 minute walk 4 days a week will help as well.
To all who have high blood pressure and have questions regarding magnesium - I improved my high blood pressure dramatically by taking different type of magnesium, but found that mixed form of different types (citrate, chloride and else) works the best. I take 2 pills (400mg) in a morning and 1-2 in the evening. Also - vitamin B6, fist 3 weeks 200mg per day, after that - 100mg per day. Plus - parsley and garlic oil in capsules - 1 cap in the morning (diuretic). If your liver does not work properly - it can lead to high blood pressure.
Also found some info online regarding natural remedies for high blood presure - "Start your day with a cup of cayenne tea - 1 teaspoon in a cup of hot water (I personally think it's too strong, maybe 1/2 tsp?). Plus garlic pill and hawthorn berry 565 mg. Do it 3 times per day. Also 2 tablespoons of organic vinegar in water sometime during the day. Add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to plain yogurt and eat, it will reduce blood pressure instantly."

I struggled for years with high blood pressure and medications were not very effective and I hated the side-effects. I found the solution in drinking plenty of water throughout the day (at least 1/2 my weight in ounces) and I take approx. 1000 mg of magnesium per day, 700 of it at bedtime and I also take hawthorn supplement, just one a day, and a low dose of melatonin at night--usually about 2.5 mg. I will vary the melatonin and not take it every single night but will skip a night now and then. Wonderfully successful results and I feel so much better!
S. O. S. Help. I've posted before. I have really high blood pressure 185/120. I am mid forties, thin and do not smoke. I've tried everything ACV, lemon and cream of tartar, hawthorne berry, cayenne pepper, magnesium, celery, chinese herbal teas, acupuncture and I have purchased multiple products from the healthfood store. Can you refer a product or something to me that works. I am currently on a beta blocker that barely works and is making me sick. I am a single working Mother with two kids and it's even difficult to work. Please help.

Hi Ted: Well, you are my last stop. 5 years ago I was stung by a bee. To make a long story short, I am not allergic to bees, however, was in the hospital for several days. A nurse gave me IV Benadryl and my blood pressure went to stroke level. They got it down to 150 over 90 where it stayed until now. I tried every pill the MD gave me. Nothing worked. I have tried ACV, hydrogen peroxide therapy, hawthorn berry, mukta vahti, beets, garlic, cayenne pepper, chinese herbal teas, cupping, acupuncture and even a Filipino faith healer. I have spent thousands of dollars. Now my blood pressure is spiking 187/119. I have migraine headaches, chills, confusion and I am scared to death. Is there anything you can do to help. I am desperate.

Driving a big rig around the country, my BP has to be 140/90,or they pull my license. I've taken it all:garlic, ACV, cayenne, bicarb, salt free diet, HBP pills, potassium, colloidal silver, magnesium, bananas and colloidal minerals. I'm sicker from your cures than HBP. I'm still running 200/100. The medicine has unwanted side effects,but overdosing for the test,I get it down without a doctor's or homeopath's approval and feel great the rest of the year.

Last OCT '08 my blood pressure went up after sudden death in the family,I went the the Dr.and my doc. prescribed low dose of CLONIDINE,after 2 wks i was off meds,thought it will go down since iwas in the state of shocked since then my BP has been 160/88 I found this website and I went to the health food store and and bought bragg ACV, I've been taking ACV for 10 days with 8 oz H2O with the following supplements: cal.1000 mg, magnesium 400 mg, zinc 10 mg (all in 1 pill) 3x a day, flaxseed 1000 mg 3x a day,Vit C 1000 mg 3 x a day garlic softgel 1000 mg 6x a day and 1 grapefruit a day and now my blood pressure is 110/70 after 10 days it is so unreal but today after taking a nap my BP was 96/62, is that too LOW?i forgot I've been eating celery too and use a lot of garlic..Anyway,TNX for the website and all the comments.
I though that the following might be of interest. I am a male of 57 years. I had a heart attack and subsequent angioplasty with stents when I was 45 and then until earlier in 2008 I was fine.
In June I had a series of heart attacks followed by bypass surgery. All went really fine but shortly after being released from hospital I developed very high blood pressure of 200+ over 100+. Despite various changes of medication by my doctor, my blood pressure would not stay under control and so I started my search for "other" remedies, which is what lead me to this site.
I tried the Apple Cider Vinigar cure, and although it did relieve the acid indigestion that I sometimes suffer from, it did not help with my blood pressure which despite continuing to take my medication would often read 210 over 118 or more (The ACV did not help me to lose any weight either.
It seemed as if a stroke was inevitable and I was beginining to despair when I read that L- Arganine helps to lower blod pressure. I tried the maximum recommended dose (as well as my meds) of 1 gram 3 times a day, and did see a little improvement, but still in the region of 170 over 95.
Then I made a break through. As you can imagine, I have spent a lot of time seaching the internet for help (hope) and I have read just about everything that has been published from the various research papers regarding high blood pressure. I read a report that natural progestorone cream - in addition to many other benefits - lowers blood pressure. Three weeks ago, I started to apply natural progesterone cream at the dose of 10 mgs morning and evening. I continued to take 1 gram L-Arganine 3 times a day as well as using my medication.
Yesterday morning I took my blood pressure reading and to my delight it was 127 over 89. It stayed around this figure with all of my daytime readings and this morning was 130 over 84. I know that this may not seem to be a great reading, but for me it is fantastic. I am not recommending any of what I have tried as being right for anyone else, but it may be something that others may want to research if they, like me, cannot get their BP under control.
