my blood pressure improved after losing the excess weight.

give up sugar and grain products to lose 44 pounds at age 61.

my sister lost 105 pounds by walking 15000 steps a day at age 63.

neither one of us have gained a pound back in over a year.

I am shocked at the sodium content of raw foods too

Keeping your sodium intake low is a good way to help maintain a lower blood pressure. Its hard when most processed foods are loaded with sodium. look at sodium content on labels. Drink lots of water, and look for foods that help to maintain a good bp level.

I was asked about my salt intake which I do not think is high but am going to monitor it on here till I go back to Doc in March. Trying to lose a bit and reduce my coffee intake

Hello.

I've been a member of SP for a few years now, though I haven't been an active member lately. Recently, my visit with my doctor brought up a discussion of high blood pressure. It runs on both sides of my families, so I know that it is likely I will have to be on meds at some point, but the fact that we were talking about it...and I'm only 32 years old...really depressed me.

I'm not ready to be on meds. I really, REALLY want to find a healthy, natural way to manage my blood pressure. So...I logged into SP...for the first time in probably close to a year...to see if there was a group I could join...for help. For ideas. For support.

I'm so, so discouraged, guys.
