which by the way measures the force of Blood against your Artery Walls. When it's consistenly high, it can WAKEN YOUR BLOOD VESSELS and significantly increase your risk of HEART ATTACK, STROKE and KIDNEY FAILURE.
I'm Thankful I got passed all those mentioned above by taking control and making Lifestyle Changes.
*Cut Down On SALT

Limit Salt by Buy fresh, plain frozen or canned vgegies that say " NO SALT ADDED" Use Fresh meat and FIsh. Use Herbs, Spices and Salt-Free seasoning blends, Cut back on Instant Rice, Pasta, or Cereal which tends to have added Salt.
Rinse canned foods, such as Tuna look for low- or reduced-Sodium, or NO SALT -ADDED.
Remember, Kosher Salt and Sea Salt are just that- SALT !
