Natural Remedies for Blood Pressure
by Oswald P
I found your page interesting because 2 years ago I had hypertension and my physician said if I did not lose weight and get my blood pressure down soon I was heading for a stroke or a heart attack so he would be forced to medicate me which I did not want.
That scared me and so I went on a diet and I started Salsa dancing classes (dont laugh) to get fitter because the gym and I do not get on and I am not a jogger.
A friend of mine at work who is really into natural remedies said that my physician should have talked to me about stress because she could tell that I was feeling pressure at work and that was probably contributing to my high blood pressure. I knew she was right about being stressed and she offered to give me some thing to help (she is not a qualified person but has a strong interest)
Next day she brought me a dropper bottle with liquid in and told me to take 4 drops in water three times a day. Apparently it contained a mix of Bach flower essences though I had never heard of them at the time. I was sceptical but had nothing to lose and she assured me they cannot harm me so I took them.
Its hard to be sure it was not coinicdence but in a couple of weeks ago I was definately feeling less stressed and when I admitted that when she asked she laughed and told me she already knew it because people had commented how much of a better frame of mind I was in and how less irritable I was. I hadnt realised I was that bad.
Anyway when I went back to my physician my blood pressure had started to come down and I had already lost some weight so he was really pleased.
two years later it is still down and I am ok. I did keep up with the weight loss and I do still dance which I reallly love so thats all part of it but whenever I feel myself getting a bit stressed out, I go back to my "magic bottle" and in a few days or so I feel ok again. The earlier I take it, the qicker the effect.
I still dont know which bach flowers are in the mix but soon I will need more so maybe I will ask her but whatever they are, I would definately recommend them as well as all the other sensible measures you talk about. I am fitter and happier now than in a long while, and my stress levels dont get anywhere near as high. I cope better I guess.
I hope people take heed of your advice.
