I’m Krista’s Hubby. I’m looking for some ideas on how to lower Blood Pressure. I was lucky enough to have inherited genetic hypertension. **roll eyes** With a lot of help from Krista, starting Jan 1 of this year I am dedicated to changing my outlook to become a happy and positive person, after all, life is too short so live every day to its fullest, right?. I also have to admit…. I am Krista’s hubby and I am a salt-a-holic! LOL. I guess that admitting you have a problem is the first step in being better. :)
Krista has helped me notice that my medication, what I was eating, and my portion sizes were not doing me any favours as far as my blood pressure was concerned and how I was feeling. So, saying that with a lot work and support from Krista I have gotten off my blood pressure medication and to my surprise dropped 18lbs and some inches! Let’s just say that the blood pressure medication does help level your blood pressure; however there are so many really awful side effects. I am not sure which is worse the high blood pressure or the side effects of the medication I was on. If I can help it at all I am going to try to NEVER EVER go back on that medication!!
I would like to know if anyone would have ideas on how to reduce blood pressure, or natural foods etc that can help to lower my blood pressure even more? If you do have ideas or ways to lower stress / blood pressure I would love to hear about it.
I would like to say thank you so much to my beautiful wife for all her patience, help, and support!!
Love you Babe!
