    After many years trying to control my hypertension with diet without success, I recently discovered an old Indian herb. It works wonders for me. The name of the herb is Rauwolfia Serpentina. I am not saying it will work for you...We are all different and our Hypertension are caused by different things. Doctors did all tests on me and everything was fine, I eat clean and I have a perfect weight for my height with perfect BMI. I excercise a lot. I knew that my BP has to do with nerves or adrenaline glands even though the doctors just said it's essential BP with no known causes. Don't try this remedy while on drugs. Please involve your Doctor before trying anything.

      SBO...You're so right!!!! 

      There has been a forum lately (not on here) whereby some medical professional has said that he wishes physicians would study hypertension more before they prescribed medications to lower it. He went on to say, that the rise in bp is caused by something going on in the body...it just doesn't rise for no reason. Yes, he was referring to the term "Essential Hypertension". He also went on to say that they should conduct an investigation as to what's going on..treat that (IF they find something), & that would very likely eliminate the necessity for someone to take bp lowering medications. I've often wondered about medicine...we seem to treat the problem,not the cause. We take anti-inflammatories to lower the inflamation, but to me, the cause of the inflamation should be treated. If someone is smoking...& a fire results each time., why do we keep putting out the fire? Stop the person from smoking!!!! Get my point???

      Thank you for letting me know, I have a very similar history to you. I am an active female ( gym 3-4x week) I eat well, mostly organic and rarely fast food but i do have a family history of high BP. I just seem to react to every drug they've tried I'm trying to find a way to deal naturally with this. I have been taking Hawthorn Root Tincture and I'm having fairly good results from that.

      Thanks for your imput

    Hi darlene88042...I would suspect a lot of people have experienced some kind of side effect from whatever bp med they may be taking. Some don't experience any side effects at all, while others live in a hell with them. Every person is different.

    I know a few people who don't have any problems at all with Amlodipine (Norvasc), yet I know some who can't take it at all. 

    Not all meds react with people in the same way. It's best to find one that's right for you..through your doctor. If natural remedies were extremely reliable at reducing high bp, then the pharmaceutical companies would go out of business. Remember  too, that because it's 'natural',doesn't mean it's safe.

    Hi Darline and all..

    You will note that a previous post by me has been deemed unsuitable by the modorators and deleted. I am using a natural Food Supplyment that has medical evidence to back up the claims and has reduced ny BP from 132 over 77 to 125 over 75 in two months. I now intend to start reducing my medication and hopfully the side effects

     

    I can give you the website address if you are interested but you will have to email me on karl at karlgarcedesign dot co.dot uk. I am not selling the produce you can do your own resurch and buy it direct from the company if you decide to do so. All I can say itis working for me and 2 other friend of mine.

    My wfe's bp was always on the high side (140-160/80-100) eventhough on medication of losartan potassium/COZAAR 100mg

    2 months ago she started drinking lettuce juice not less than 3 times a day around 250ml each time

    This seems to work for her as her bp now is 100-120/70-90

    As the saying goes, one's medicine/food is another person's poison

    But its quite save to have a go at this :-) nothing venture nothing gain :-)

    Dear SBO, wrong dietery lifestyle i believe is the the root cause of most health problems. My wife was diagnosed having high bp ten years ago and is still taking medications. The doctor didn't say what type of hypertensionsion hers was. By the way what is essential hpertension?

      There are many causes of hypertension. Mine is hereditary both parents had it, I am 53 125 lbs I go to the gym 4 x weekly, eat a mostly organic diet i don't smoke and I've been doing this since I was 25 and told that I'm am genetically prone to HP, still I have to be on medication to control, some things are just out of our hands. I have been told that 135/80 is a good blood pressure reading these days, it is said that you do not have to be 120/70 as previously thought.
