Just read a study on BP wrist monitors. They regularly read 6 mmhg higher than what's real.
Is it ok to combine 2 teaspoons of ACV in 8 oz of water with 2 tbs. of Blackstrap Molasses (instead of Honey) 3 times a day for my High Blood Pressure?
Hello sir, actually i am a 15 year old male. actually i have a problem of medium blood pressure. 1st when i went to a doctor my blood pressure was around 154/70. my lower blood pressure always remains normal.but my upper bp always remains high. then i started having medicines of haelopathy. but there was no reduction in my blood pressure.after few days i started having homeopathy medicines and after that my blood pressure was around 130/67. when i go to a doctor my blood pressure suddenly rise up to 135/74. so i just wanted to know how to make a control of it. and when it remains in control do i have to take medicines again and again????
If I decide to try a remedy for, say, high blood pressure and I am already taking prescription medicine, do I stop taking my meds when I start trying the remedies?

My very simple way to lower blood pressure that works remarkably well for me is to drink Ginger water every day.
Be sure to monitor your BP because it might get too low.
You simply make ginger tea by putting a few slices of raw ginger in your teapot, add boiling water and let it steep. Drink whenever you feel like either hot or cold. That's it! No more beta-blockers for me.
I would like to try the Budwig Diet. I've had success with the The Grape Cure I used it for high blood pressure, but was unable to last longer than 3 weeks. It really worked and reduced my blood pressure from 180/140 down to 120/80 in three weeks, but shortly thereafter I faltered and began eating a regular American Diet again which has caused it to rise once again. Please send me the specific protocol so that I may give this regime a try and see if it can help with my blood pressure. Thank you ever so much. Stay well, Charles
High Blood Pressure cured with Grape Seed Oil!
Have been using GSO now for about 2 years & must report that both my HBP & bad CHOLESTEROL have been excellent in the past 6 months of lab work! Though nothing would ever make them normal again and from using it to cook and as a moisturizer. My mom's as well. She was at 260/150 and now 105/59 just like me! Truly amazing!!!
I can recommend Hawthorn drops as a great help with high blood pressure. I tried beetroot, which also worked, but could not take the taste for long, whereas these Hawthorn drops are virtually tasteless. It has brought my high BP down successfully, but I need to take it every day, once or twice a day.
I've been using hawthorn supreme for high blood pressure. I take two caps and bite them then let the hawthorn liquid dissolve under my tongue. About ten minutes after I check my blood pressure with a home digital monitor. It always goes down. Mostly the top number. If still too high, I take two more the same way. It's worked so far. Both numbers go down about 10 if I take 4 caps. I've stopped my bp medicine by tapering. I'm off it now. Only use the hawthorn.
You should do this with a blood pressure monitor and take notes. Did you eat? After exercise? After the Hawthorn extract or the capsules like I used them. By keeping this journal I can see what happens to make it rise. For me, the Methylene Blue made it rise quite a bit. Smaller dose shows it doesn't rise as much. I can take the hawthorn to balance it. In the process of trying lower doses I'm checking my pressure so its stable. You should check with all your medication and keep a BP journal. Its so important to have a journal and take it all day. Its a hassle but once you figure it out, its worth it.
As an herbalist I have recommended Hawthorn Blend with positive results to 8 different people. All 8 had a drop in their blood pressure after using a tincture (30 drops AM, and PM) for about 2 weeks. I would recommend anybody with blood pressure issues to research this herb. It also corrects low blood pressure.
Hello, my mother in law ( 80) was recently in the ER twice for low sodium issues. The 2nd time a nurse nearly killed her when they switched her heart pressure medication in the afternoon and then the nurse gave her a sleeping pill that night without checking with her daughter, who had just gone home. Her blood pressure dropped so low she ended up in the ICU for 5 days. She is now back at home, but extremely fatigued and experiencing dry mouth. Her meds are:
For High BP: Norvasc (new)
For High BP: Lisinopril (new)
For Thyroid: Lovastatin (taken this for years)
For High Cholesterol - Ledothyroxin (taken this for years)
Does anyone have any supplement recommendations to help with the medication side effects? Do you think the fatigue is related to her blood pressure dropping so low after the sleeping pill fiasco? She cannot go off the meds for various reasons, so supplements to replace the nutrients the meds are zapping her system is the current goal.
Many many thanks in advance to anyone who can advise.

I was having a small success w/ACV for my high blood pressure, but the hibiscus tea gave me amazing results! From 160/89 to 130/79 in less than 24 hrs - taking the tea 3x/day.
Hibiscus Tea will lower your blood pressure. I didn't believe it til I went to the local health food store and bought some loose tea. My BP was 139/80 and after consuming a cup of tea. I took my pressure and it drop to 113/68. Google for Hibiscus Tea and Blood Pressure. There's a lot of research on it.
Found this article yesterday. Haven't tried it yet. Hope it works for you. A recent article in the Internal Medical Journal titled "Treatment of high blood pressure with hibiscus tea" really caught my eye. The article originated from the American Heart Association meeting, and the research was done at the prestigious Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University. The incredible finding of this simple nutraceutical, a food that acts like a medicine - was that drinking 3 cups of hibiscus tea a day for 6 weeks had a significant effect on participants' blood pressure. In fact, the higher the person's blood pressure, the more it lowered it. In those with normal blood pressure it didn't drop too low, but it appeared to keep it from getting higher. Here are a few amazing statements from the article:
"Regularly incorporating hibiscus tea into their diet may help control blood pressure in people at risk of high blood pressure and those already diagnosed with high blood pressure. "
"The public health implications of a blood pressure reduction of this magnitude, if extended to a larger population, could be profound. "
And, from a president of the American Heart Association, "The blood pressure reduction seen with the tea is equal in size to the typical effect of a prescription anti-hypertensive medication. "
Isn't it amazing that drinking tea made from something in God's nature is equal to our most potent hypertensive medication? Wouldn't you rather take something that God provided for us naturally, rather than a costly prescription medication that could have many side effects?
Why hibiscus tea? Apparently, researchers had observed in randomized trials with animals that it had anti-hypertensive and anti-atherosclerotic (hardening of the arteries) effects, and it was promising enough to continue into studies with humans. The compounds identified in the hibiscus tea were flavonoids and phenolic acids, which have potent antioxidant properties. Medicine is catching up with the natural world that God created for us. A reader of this article responded in part:
The dried hibiscus flowers are sold in most grocery stores - bulk and packaged. I have found it takes SO much sweetening that I experimented around and found that using either white grape juice or apple juice for the sweetener that it works very well. Just open a bottle of room temperature juice, pour it in a large bowl, add a handful of dried hibiscus flowers and let it steep for a 2-3 hrs. It tastes very similar to cranberry juice - sugar free hibiscus tea. It is served as a cold beverage in Mexico.

Hibiscus tea lowers high blood pressure. Just Google it - lots of references, including a recent study that produced very impressive results.
