I have lowered my blood pressure in the past 5 months by eating low sodium. I used to take 5 prescription medications a day, now I just take one for blood pressure. I have taken meds for over 30 years and was even slim when I started having HBP problems! After having problems and even landing in the hospital with 220/110, I learned more about a low sodium diet and started. At first I was drastic, only up to 500 mg a day of sodium. Now I eat about 1,000 mg.
You can save your life too by eating less sodium!
Sometimes when things are tricky, we struggle to resolve the issue all by ourself. That takes a lot of energy, time and can lead to frustration when just asking someone can get you the answer right away. Ask somebody!! Here at SP, there are lots of people who will lend a hand.
This goes for many things in life and simply asking for help can save a lot of grief and worry as well.
