Lowering Blood Pressure

4

This Sparked Me!

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.

MORE INFORMATION:
You can save your life too by eating less sodium!

    Good for you! I just removed the salt shaker from my table, desk at work and cabinets at the church! No more added salt for me. emoticon
