Q:I’ve had a high blood pressure problem for years and can not keep it under control. I take Diovan 320 mg 1 time/ day, atenolol 50 mg 2 times a day and diazepam to help, but it still goes up to 165 over 95 and sometimes more. And then sometimes it bottoms out at 85 over 55. I’m so tired of taking medication, is there something I can get to help besides pills?
A:Regular exercise, eating blood pressure lowering foods and maintaining a normal weight really helps with blood pressure control. Many people don’t get enough exercise and eat too much or they eat all the wring foods: salt, red meat, processed foods, fried foods, etc. All of this is hard on the body. You also may want to consider trying Resperate. It is a non-pill option that has been clinically proven to lower blood pressure in about 4 – 6 weeks. Many people have successfully lowered their blood pressure through exercise, diet and Resperate. Speak with your doctor about incorporating these lifestyle changes to see if it helps your blood pressure.
