Just finished two weeks of trying the a ACV with garlic and V-8 and experienced zero difference in my blood pressure.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Apple Cider Vinegar
I'm a 45 year old male. Slim, excercise 2-3 times/week, eat healthy, no alcohol. I've had primary hypertension since my mid 30's (150/95 or so w/o medication). Cholesterol has always been perfect. Have been taking Licinopril/HCTZ successfully for many years (BP=130/75). Have tried many non-drug cures. Decided to try to come off the medication using ACV. Bought the "natural" kind with mother and all that. Used it for 2 weeks. 2 Tablespoons with honey and water, 2 times per day. At end of 2 weeks tried to begin coming off of medication but pressure had shot to 160/95. Resumed medication and discontinued ACV. Didn't work for me. Any other suggestions? Higher dosage? I've tried all the homeopathic cures for my HBP. Nothing but medication has worked. I've kept my Dr. informed of my escapades and the only thing he told me to continue is my fish oil pill I take daily. I also continue to take a calcium suppliment and glucosamine (for joint pain) and a multivitamin every other day. I was able to cut my medication pill in half over two years ago by adhearing loosely to the DASH diet. I eat a bananna every day and normally either an orange and sometimes an apple. Eating much more leafy green veggies too. Baked salmon at least once/week. A fairly healthy eater but I still eat red meat 1-2 times per week. Tried years ago cutting down on red meat but was later found to be borderline anemic. Started eating more veggies after that as well as a little more red meat. Would like something like ACV to work. Any other ideas about dosage, etc.?
