I gave up..

Thursday, October 12, 2017

For about 5 years I have been self medicating (doctor was notified) for high blood pressure.
I drank 3 cups of 'Zinger' or hibiscus tea each day. This is a natural ACE inhibitor and dropped my BP 30-40 points.

However in the last two weeks I have been having numbers like 162/94 and the final straw was 176/111. emoticon My kidneys are important and I definitely do not want a stroke.

So I went to the walk in clinic and started on a pharmacy produced tablet ACE inhibitor.

On the first morning.... emoticon 132/83
