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.

I am very surprised to find the warning to not take curcumin, ginger, cayenne pepper or cinnamon for hypertension. All 4 of these foods are frequently recommended to have anti-hypertension properties. Just using search words like: 'ginger and hypertension' will bring up so much information. Do your own research to support your health. Blessings to all.

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

Hello Buffy,

Re the high blood pressure issue...

Even though you two are eating good food sources and largely vegetarian, even a vegetarian diet might not be getting enough natural (not synthetic) vitamin E.

So if me, to unclog marginal blockage I'd get on Natural E (d alpha tocopherol) for two months. Also I'd add on Magnesium and Potassium.

I'd start at 200 IUs per day for two weeks and increase to 400 and then in two more weeks increase to 600. Vitamin E will slick down blood platelets and veins and arteries so plaque will not build so readily and E is an oxygenator and natural blood thinner. So if on aspirin, I'd get off the aspirin after a few weeks on E.

If my blood pressure did not start coming down with those three then I'd start up on Arginine.

In none of these work I'd think that perhaps a fungal infection was at work. A Live Cell Microscopy would tell if fungus was in the blood stream beyond the norm...Fungus can give off a by product that forms a plaque and that plaque might be overcoming the Vitamin E and all the good vegetable consumption you are doing.

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 Hilkil, My Aunt has parsley tea first thing in the morning. She cuts the parsley and the stalks with scissors and then pours boiling water over them and steeps for a few mins. Her readings were about 145-155 over 90-95, now it's 120-130 over 80-90.

My BP crept up to 150/95.Then was in a building with mould and it was at 180 to 190 over 95 to 105. It would also react to stress and/or allergies and would sky rockert anywhere up to 229/126. Was put on Micardis. Got side effects. No more contact with the mouldy building but it was still to high and would still spike to high, 180/110. Found Himalaya Herbal Serpina so took myself off the meds and went on the natural alternative 1 tab twice a day for about 6 months, plus an extra tab for any spikes. At which time the BP was 120/80 to 130/88. Then added the lemon, bi-carb soda mix with magnesium and potassium added twice a day. My pulse is also now regular and very strong, which it had not been for many years. I now only take the serpina when it spikes (not very often) but I still take the lemon, bi-carb, magnessiun & potassium. I used to monitor twice a day but now only monitor every few days or so. All the best in finding your own path to health.

Do a liver flush. Then juice fresh beets (root and top) and drink. May want to juice with carrots. It may turn your stool red... You are not bleeding.

For high bp, one word: Beets. Eat fresh beets--roasted, on salad, juiced, or "refrigerator pickled". There is an easy recipe for making refrigerator beets on the Food Network website (Alton Brown recipe). I omit the thyme, use ACV or red wine in place of the flavored vinegar, and use cane sugar in place of sugar (I also use about half the sugar he calls for... ). Does not require heat canning or pressure canning. Delicious, ready in 3 days, great on salads or just straight out of the jar. Also, fresh beet juice--plain or mixed with carrot, apple, celery, ginger... Any number of other fresh juices... There are a number of articles on the web about studies proving that beets lower BP.

I know that beetroots lower blood pressure and I do drink fresh beet juice regularly but I wonder about the sugar as they seem to contain a lot.

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.

Hi Hillary - both my husband and I keep our blood pressure under control with Q10 and liquid Olive Leaf. The Olive Leaf especially is amazing, it brings our blood pressure down without any problems. Q10 requires LCarnitine (an amino acid) and MSM powder to lock it in. Because Q10 is fat soluble I take it with whole milk. All of these are easily obtainable, at least they are here in Australia. We also use Strauss Heart Drops which are produced in Canada. Strangely you can buy them in NZ but not here. I have no idea why, so I'm not sure whether you can buy them or not. Just google them for more info. They really are wonderful although they taste foul. Good luck Marlane Ellis

Hilary, would you believe this... I also got stung by a bee and took benedryl. I didn't put two and two together until I read your post. I went to a massage therapist and she took my blood pressure. It was 176/103. I couldn't believe it so when I got home I took it on my machine and it was 156/95 which was better but still way too high and had me worried. It stayed pretty high like that so I came to Earth Clinic and read about taking Lemon Juice with Cream of Tarter. You will have to look it up for the exact instructions but I used the juice of 1/2 lemon and instead of using 2 teaspoons of cream of tarter, I only used one. It tastes fine. I did add a little honey to sweeten it and threw in a shake of red pepper. My blood pressure dropped like a rock! I did that for about three days and then my blood pressure was so good I just stopped. My blood pressure this morning is 116/70. I'm happy with that. A big thanks to whoever posted that remedy. After reading your post, I'm wondering if the Benedryl is what caused it to get so high. It has been getting a little bit higher this year and the Doc has been threatening me with medication so I am very grateful this remedy is working.

In response to Hilary... It sounds like anxiety symptoms. If you're having anxiety it would make sense your blood pressure would be high. I'm seeing a kinesiologist, she is wonderful. I was asking her if she can detect things like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, etc. She said yes, most definitely. She said the kidneys control blood pressure, it's the amount of rennin in the kidneys. Conventional wisdom will tell you high blood pressure can damage kidneys if not treated, but it appears it's the other way around. I would look for an alternative practitioner. Doctors today only know drugs and surgery. Blood pressure to them is called "essential" which means they are clueless as to what causes it. At least I got an explanation from a very good kinesiologist which is more than I ever got from a doctor.

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.

Hello Hoax. Your high blood pressure could be related to build up of plaque in your arteries and not due to kidney toxicity... If this is the case you may want to check into ORAL CHELATION. This might clear your arteries and may result in lowering your blood pressure.

Phil, can you tell me which oral chelation product you used to lower your blood pressure? Like many other people, I've tried everything also to lower my BP with no luck. I would really appreciate your feedback.

Thanks, Tony

Hello Tony. I actually don't use an oral chelation. My High blood pressure issues are due to sodium and sugars. Which is why anything that will flush my kidneys seems to work... I drink Asparagus Extract every day to help maintain normal kidney function.

You can google Asparagus extract and usally Dr. Chi comes up, that is what I use. As far as oral chelation, there are many on the market. One that comes to mind is Nutralife laboratories. You may also want to check out herbalhealer.com, she has some great testimonials and she will send you a free catalog that details alot of information. And the only other one I can think of is oralchelation.com. I used, breifly the one from Nutralife laboratories and did see lower readings, but I also was drinking Asparagus Extract at the same time, so I really can't tell you for sure if it worked.

There are many people that have said oral chelation worked for them, I guess you just have to find the one that works best for you...

Vinager and garlic never helped me, only the Asparagus drink helped.

Sorry, I could not help more. But everything I learn and study comes from me making good use of google and reading several websites.

Thanks Phil, this was actually very helpful I appreciate it. Oddly enough, my BP was perfect today, but that was after a long run this morning. I've noticed that after a 30 minute jog my BP goes down significately.

Good luck to you.
Thanks again.

Hi Tony. I glad this may help you. I should have also mentioned the instructions for the asparagus extract is one cup of hot water added to packet, let sit for 5 minutes, stir and drink... Once a day is recommended for maintaining normal blood pressure range....However if you kidneys are clogged and toxic you can drink up to 3 packs a day and only use half a cup of hot water. If you order the free catalog from herbalhealer.com it has tons of information about ALL kinds of diseases and the instructions on the asparagus is in the book in serveral different places. I find it works btter for me at half cup of water taken twice daily.

If your pressure does not come down, after a few weeks , then you might consider oral chelation...But you would be suprised at the people who simply just have toxic kidneys and they need to be flushed.

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.
