I just had a physical today and the Dr. said my blood pressure was 170/? I cant remember the smaller number. I am recently down 45+ pounds, even the nurse after she weighed me said "dp you realize you lost over 40 lbs." I replied really?!? Of course I knew. As far as my diet goes I am strict, no cheats. Lean meats, veggies, no fruit yet, bacon 1 or 2 times during the week. I do not salt any of my meals because the taste is too much for me. Any ideas will help, I have to go in for a checkup again in 3 weeks. I told him I dont want to go on meds. Thank you

Mine is always high in the doctor's office but fine when I test at the pharmacy or grocery store. White coat syndrome is very common.
If I sit quietly and sort of meditate it always goes down.

It's surprisingly easy to regulate blood pressure using paleo.
Increase potassium intake. http://www.healthaliciousness.com/articles/high-potassium-vegetables.php
Increase niacin intake. http://nutritiondata.self.com/foods-000110000000000000000.html

Practice slowing your breaths down to 6 or 7 breaths a minute and do this for 15 minutes a day. If you use the second-hand on a watch or clock, that's about 5 seconds of inhaling followed by 5 seconds of exhaling (or 4 inhale, 6 exhale).
There's a device that helps you do this by monitoring your breaths and using a tone/music to guide your breathing, but it's pretty expensive ... doing it on your own is free!

My mom and dad, always preferred Herbal Medicines as it had helped them a lot and cured too. They went for both diet and meds. But i would suggest better go for diet and eat proper food, completely avoid salt.

I suffer from high blood pressure and use allopathic medications prescribed by my doctor. You have mentioned herbs for hypertension which don’t cause too many side effects. I would really like to try them and see if it does any good for my condition.

I've been on Altace for 6 years. I carefully analyze if I've noticed any changes in any organ system, as well as any type of side effect that didn't exist before I was on this drug. I honestly have never noticed any kind of side effect at all from day one. More importantly, my blood pressure is now routinely around 110/70...sometimes slightly lower still. Considering that I take one 10mg capsule daily, and that my blood pressure was usually 145/85-95, the results are quite impressive.
