This is really excellent stuff on here. I've used cayenne pepper for 15 years plus now along with a few other practices and be live it helps maintain my blood pressure within the normal range without having to alter my diet and life style to much. Can't wait to try out apple cider vinegar at least it wont be as pungent taken in a tea form like the cayenne. having said that, do not be put off cayenne as you can use capsules. It's great stuff!
I have tried the Cayenne Pepper and Golden Seal capsules. I would generally take two in the morning and 2 in the evening. Worked pretty good. I also have tried the apple cider vinegar and that works well too. 2 to 3 tsp 3 times a day did it for me.
I luv to share this. I was told as a 40-something Af. Amer women, that I was borderline hypertensive and put on meds. Not good. I was falling asleep. Also no good to cut the dose -- comatose. A friend told me about a folk remedy - cayenne pepper. She said it needed to be organic cayenne- it's stronger, I guess. I am now over 50 and my pressure is usually in the range of 110/70. I do take a 12mg. water pill to keep me from retaining water also. I started with @1/4 tsp (of cayenne) in any liquid you want 2x a day. If needed, you can up this to 1/2 tsp but do this slowly so your body can adjust to the increase. Now I do watch my salt intake but I only use the cayenne when I have had a particularly salty dish.
I take once daily, 1500 mg off garlic soft gel and two capsules of cayenne, 450mg ginger, 200mg hawthorn berry, 50mg of lecithin the last are all in one capsule keeps my BP in check Good luck.
for further help with high blood pressure you should eat celery... At least 4 stalks a day for 7 days and you will see your blood pressure come down!! its true
To lower your blood pressure safely juice 4 celery sticks every day. This will lower your blood pressure at least 10 percent. My blood pressure went from 120 over 80 to 90 over 60. Doctor was dumbfounded. Yeah imagine that. I have a condition called aquagenic urticaria and am unable to drink pure water, researched and found celery juice to be the most non allergenic juice available. The blood pressure thing was just a side effect that I have since confirmed through further research.
Celery Seed Extract for high blood pressure
I am a 27 year old male and have had high blood pressure ever since my first physical for high school sports, otherwise healthy and in great shape. About 6 months ago my blood pressure reading at the doctor was 155/98. This was the highest it has ever been and the doctor recommended going on medication which I didn't want to do.
I started taking celery seed extract which can be bought at any health store or online for under $10. I took two capsules two or three times a day. The next time I had my blood pressure taken was 3 weeks later when donating blood.
I was extremely surprised to find my BP at 124/78
I now take 1 capsule twice a day and take a week off about every six weeks and maybe miss a day here and there.
high blood pressure neglect resulted in a stroke for me 2yrs ago. for 2 yrs i survived on meds, but side effects were undesirable, and depending on what i ate there was a tendency for hbp spikes and the resulting weakness and nausea.i was basically sick and weak daily. a co-worker shared a snack of celery and apples with me.i noticed it gave me energy, offset the effects of my meds and stabilized my hbp. i used to check my bp daily, sometimes 2-3 times due to nausea and weakness. now i check it 1x mo just to smile. Raw celery, apples, and red grapes daily- 2times a day at first. after 3 weeks my hbp is no longer an issue. I am strong, nausea free. i stopped anti-coag drug and replaced w 81mg adult aspirin, plus cinnamon caplets,and policosinol( all anti-coag)
I also take garlic, and am researching ginger and tumeric as daily supplmts if doctor consents. i now thinks meds are unnecessary but no doctor consent on this. I usually use, 2-3 celery stalks, one juicy red apple, and as many grapes i desire. Now i do this just once a day. Never tried ACV. My cure has to get to the root of my problem and has to be something i can do for life with no side effects. Celery, apples and grapes daily is the bomb!!!
Doc put me on lisinopril ("You don't want a stake, do you?" asked he). after about a month of minor improvement I took myself off because don't believe in all the addicting meds US docs prescribe that don't get at underlying cause.
Instead: deep breathing (10 slow breaths ) brought my blood pressure down 30 points!
Last two days I've been drinking a concentrated Chaga drink from Chaga off a friend's dying birches. BP 120/71 this am and this pm an almost too low of 82/41. But I feel fine. I am a 77 year old female. I'll take a break from Chaga for a few days and see and then if BP climbs back up, will have some more in mornings.
I wanted to share with everyone a remedy that worked for me. I have always had high blood pressure and now that I'm in my 50's my doctor was trying to get me on meds ... no way I thought there has to be something natural that will get it under control ... I tried cider vinegar and actually make my own but it just never worked ... I then discovered birch tree 'Chaga' in fact it grows on trees all over our property ... what an impact it has made on my life ... My blood pressure is the lowest it's ever been, I've also lost 30 lbs in 5 months, I have more energy and sleep better and even my skin feels better ... I don't drink coffee anymore, only Chaga tea that I make from the mushrooms harvested off my property ... It's a well kept secret ... and I'm telling everyone, try it.

My dad (a scientist/atheist) had extremely high blood pressure that was not being controlled with prescription meds (even though he was taking 3 different kinds of blood pressure meds! )
I read on webMD that meditation with a mantra helps reduce blood pressure. I asked my dad to do an experiment. First, to take his blood pressure. He did. It was 179/76. Then I asked him to chant "Nam-myoho-renge-kyo" with me for 15 minutes (it is a Buddhist chant that means "dedication to the mystical/inexplicable Law of Cause and Effect through sound/vibration"). He only chanted for 7 minutes and then wanted to take his blood pressure again, immediately. He did, and his blood pressure was 105/67.
We tried this experiment every day for a week. Every time, it worked to lower his blood pressure.
Chanting definitely reduces blood pressure. I have also used chanting to relieve anxiety, reduce depression and to access the subconscious mind. Try it and see!!! It's free and it works.

CINNAMON. S'posed to be an end to HBP and Diabetes.
I was having uncomfortable time during past 7 days when my BP rose to 140 /90 from my 'normal' 130/80. It was quite a sudden thing and that leaves me clueless - hmm what was wrong?
So since then I tried water, garlic and ACV/BS without significant result while keep reading EC for more things to try out. I came across virgin coconut oil VCO so I did take it just 1tsp last night. 2 hrs later I was seeing the readings were on the way down. Early this morning I had another 1 tsp. Well, I did take coconut water drink too as the same time. So I'm not sure who did the work or was it both?
To my total surprise when I checked the BP this morning it was 120/80, a number I was striving to achieve for a very long time.
Let see how long it will last - I pray for the best.
I'm 58 yrs old and with HBP for the last 30yrs. I've been taking Coconut oil and Virgin palm oil (1 tbl spn ea. in the late afternoon or evening) for approx 6 mos. My BP has been reduced drastically whereas I plan to get off it completely (I take one pill in the morning and another one in the evening). I haven't discussed this with my Dr. and I'll get off both of them about a month before my next visit with him to actually see the results. If my pressure is normal I don't think I'll tell him what I've been doing though to keep things simple. He'll re-prescribe my medicine but I no longer plan on taking them as long as my BP remains normal.
I began using VCO on doctor's orders to help combat hypothyroid. My skin, hair, energy levels were all positive results. I also used VCO as a deodorant. However, after a few days I began gaining weight, got dizzy spells and some diarrhea. My blood pressure soared! After continued trials for a couple of weeks, my doctor advised me to stop using it. This was disappointment as I got good results in other areas; however, every attempt made to try it again caused my BP to go higher. I do full body cleanses once or twice a year. Possibly it might help if I did just liver cleanse? I'm 60 years old, exercise daily, eat healthy foods, do drink 1.5 cups coffee in morning and am Blood Type A. Disappointed as not being able to use coconut oil due to HBP. Would appreciate any comments on my HBP problem to be answered on this site. Any insight would be beneficial. Thanks, a CA gal
