You can restrict your salt (sodium chloride) intake by eating out less frequently.  Use salt-free condiments in your cooking.  Coenzyme Q10 has been shown to lower blood pressure and improve kidney function.  Google "coenzyme Q10" for more information.  Use natural diuretics to remove excess fluid from your body.  Grapefruit juice is a natural diuretic.  Regular exercise can lower blood pressure.  Stress reduction techniques such as yoga, massage therapy, biofeedback, meditation also can lower blood pressure.

Raw garlic!

Don't worry. You will get use to it.


Oh- regular exercise can be construed as at least two miles a day, the faster the better.

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.

There is some evidence that the supplement CoQ10 may help to reduce high blood pressure. A 12 week double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 83 people with systolic hypertension examined the effect of CoQ10 supplements (60 mg twice daily). After the 12 weeks, there was a mean reduction in systolic blood pressure of 17.8 mm Hg in the Coq10-treated group. Another study conducted at the University of Western Australia looked at the effect of CoQ10 on blood pressure and glycemic control in 74 people with type 2 diabetes. Participants were randomly assigned to receive either 100mg CoQ10 twice daily, 200mg of the drug fenfibrate, both, or neither for 12 weeks. CoQ10 significantly reduced systolic and diastolic blood pressure(mean reduction 6.1 mm Hg and 2.9 mm Hg respectively). There was also a reduction in HbA1C, a marker for long-term glycemic control. To learn more about CoQ10, read the Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) fact sheet.

I recently went to a new doctor and noticed he was located in something called the Professional Building. I felt better right away.

I'm on 4 different BP meds, I've discovered in the last 6 months that the cinnamon stick tea and the cinnamon oat-meal I have nearly day, has helped me a  little bit more. I've had oat-meal & tea  every day but 3 for, the last 23 months. I'm a 53 year old male and a brain stem stroke survivor. My last cholesterol test(6 mo. ago) showed a bad chol. of 71 and I'm currently averaging @ 115/68 BP, in the morning.

Garlic lowers blood press, the capsules are good. Also has parsley with it if you notice your breath changing. Fish oil capsules also are good for blood pressure, but be sure to tell your doctor about it, since it will lower the blood pressure. Good luck.


The best natural method of lowering your blood pressure is to reduce the amount of sodium you consume to 2300mg per day. You can track this by checking food labels when purchasing home supplies. Also eat lots of fruits and veggies including general foods that lower blood pressure . Exercise will also help lower your blood pressure. It must not be heavy exercise but simple light aerobic exercise that benefits your muscles, arteries and heart.

Yes!  Hibiscus tea is a good, safe, natural way to lower your blood pressure.  If you read that page that I link to, you will find more explanation of how / why it works: there is solid scientific evidence behind its use.

I would also recommend doing other things to reduce your blood pressure.  A few simple changes in diet, such as cutting out processed foods high in salt and refined carbs, can have very positive effects.  Exercise and reducing your general stress level are also both very important.  If interested, you can read about what I would recommend on this matter in more depth on my page about lowering blood pressure naturally.

Good luck!  Most people can lower their blood pressure to safe levels without the use of prescription drugs!  You will have better luck if you tackle this problem from multiple angles too.
