Hi Sunnyarizona,
Thanks for your quick answer.She's from the old school ,but she 's done it I'll have the results at the end of the week.Since 2001 I've tried so many drugs but nothing has really helped or they had a lot of side effects.That's why I want to try something else.Thank God I've found this forum...
Regards

Wow, sorry your Dr. was not willing to do a blood level for Vitamin D. Obviously she is from the "old school" belief in medicines. Toss a drug at you for what ailes you, rather than try alternative ideas.

You may have to PAY for the test, but INSIST she do it!

The problem with drugs to lower our pressure, is that they don't always work, and you end up on more and more. That is crazy. Those drugs don't always make you feel so great either!

Good luck on your quest!

KINGDOMHEIR, your Dr. will know what your blood level for Vitamin D should be.

They are finding amoung MANY people , that low levels of D are responsible for MANY MANY of our health problems.

Strange, considering where I live, but people even in the SUNSHINE states suffer from this problem.

I am sure D will be found to be the MIRACLE viatmin one day soon!

I took my BP before giving blood last month, it was up, an hour before I took 2,000 units of D. Pressure at the RED CROSS was 110/64. FLOORED me, never was that low at the RC.

I just went to my doc & they were going to run some blood tests, I will call and ask for that one. Is there a certain level that would indicate you are not getting enough Vit D? Will it let you know how much Vit D you need to take? I take a multi-vitamin every day but am not sure what amount of Vit D is included -- will check that.

In response to a couple of the other posts - a couple of years ago I quit eating red meat for awhile and lost about 30 pounds & am thinking of do that again to help with the pounds & blood pressure. I was following the guidelines in the book "What Would Jesus Eat" and used several recipies from the cookbook with the same name. I agree with the balanced eating, which is my hardest thing to do. t I'm working in more fruits & vegies now so it's getting better.

but isn't it funny how it's mostly the countries that consume meat and dairy that have most of the nutritional health problems.

That is just a fad diet.You are suppose to have a balanced diet of fats,fruits and vegs, lean meats,grains and dairy. Also you should drink plenty of water and exercise too.

Nutrition plays a BIG part in lowering your blood pressure. If you watch the salt, and make sure you get in 4700 mg. of potassium a day, that can make a difference.

The biggest help for me has been to take Vitamin D. Though I started it for my bones, turns out the SIDE effect has been to lower my pressure.

I recommend everyone with HBP, go to the Dr. and ask for a BLOOD level of Vitamin D. This is NOT a common test, and I wish it was!

Maybe the drug companies have a hand in that. If we could decrease our pressure with such a simple thing as more Vit. D, then they would loose a LOT of money.

SO, we have to be our OWN advocates, and take the BULL BY THE HORN, and find out where we stand with regards to this important nutrient!

Nutrition MATTERS!!!

i don't think nutrition is what you call a fad diet. i'm not a vegetarian but humans were not meant to eat meat. if we were we would have teeth made for eating meat. our teeth are made for vegetation. the eating of more fruits and veggies and less meat has always been how people should eat. i don't think you would be able to find a nutritionist or a dentist that would disagree

This is a fad diet, no one should not do any diet that forbids or limits to much of any food group. You need to eat a balanced diet with grains, whole if you can eat them; fruits and vegetables; and meat, eggs, protien rich beans.
