another remedy for blood pressure is this: mix 4 cups of apple juice, 2 cups of white grape juice and 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar. drink a 1/2 cup before you go to bed. I accidentally discovered it lowered my blood pressure also. I was using this tonic to lower my cholesterol which was not high. Most people I told bout this remedy said it helped their arthritis and gave them a lot f energy. It worked for ma and others. I don't know what this combo does for the body, but it DOES work.

Several years ago I developed hypertension. I was overweight and needed a good motivation got lose - this was it.

I was initially controlled on Losartan 160mg. Over the next 2 years I lost 60 lbs, increased my exercise level a bit, and have not regained any weight in the past 10 years. After 3 or 4 years I have needed no BP medication! My BP is now 130/77, pulse 65. I am 74 years old.
It can be done, you just have to want to.
