I am trying to bring my BP down without a prescription medication. 2 weeks ago my BP was 164/104 last week it was 144/99 and today it is 138/98; I am vitamin D deficient so I am on a high dose of D2 and I take Garlic, Omega 3, 6, 9, and am drinking Aloe Vera gel 2 times per day, as well as relaxation and exercising daily I hope to get m BP down without having to take and unnatural medications. I am praying for a good outcome.
My hbp was much higher about a week ago. The doctor told me to increase my med. It is working but I don't like the idea of increasing my meds. I have been back and forth to this site and I am grateful because I have making some change like walking in the morning. I knew that it would pay off. It just takes me time to realize and to act upon it. So thank you to everyone.
So was mine. For the first time last week (and every day since!). Here I've lost almost 50 lbs and have become very active and my usual 100-110/60-70 BP now ranges 140-150's over 90's. I thought they had heard it wrong, but I've checked it at work everyday and at various pharmacies and it's consistently high. Keeping a log for 2 weeks and going back to my doctor.
Good luck getting yours down to an acceptable level :-)

"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Went to the doctor and my pressure was very high. Must get serious about no salt, and highly seasoned food. Stress also plays a part in elevating your pressure. I will learn to take one day at a time and remember that God will not give you more than you can bare.... and worrying does not help....Matthew 6:27.
