Diuretics almost put me in the hospital from dehydration. It worked just a little too well, hence why I am only on an ACE Inhibitor which is working wonderfully.

I love my water, and my green tea.
I make a pot of green tea with my Mr. Coffee tea maker, by using 7 pkts. of green tean bags. THEN at the end I add on large bottle of SOBE LITE Green tea, one pkt. of my favorite Pink Lemonade koolaide, and 3/4 cup splenda. YUM. BTW, I am RARELY EVER ill!!!

Hibiscus is a poison, hence the kidney damage ~smiles~. Leave it to the Asians to find some way to make a poison beneficial and yummy ~chuckles~.

I personally don't drink Hibiscus or Belladonna, but that's just me ~smiles~. I love water!

Looking thru my newsletters from inspire.com, I saw one a woman had posted saying she'd been drinking hibiscus tea to help w/her HBP. So I did a search.
www.hibiscus.org/toeat.php

It looks to me like it *does* have anti hypertensive actions, BUT..can interfere w/a variety of medicines, like diuretics (which many of us are on) and there may be a danger of kidney damage.
Thought I'd pass it on! emoticon
