natural alternatives to blood pressure drugs??? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread

My partner has been taking prinivil for high blood pressure. Was planning to get 3 month mail order prescription written at last Dr's visit. Doc decided to switch medicines and monitor to see if that made any difference. Now we can't get 3 month supply because the doctor is experimenting with changing medicines. Any suggestions as to natural remedies to use if we can't get prescriptions filled? This really put a kink in our prep plans...

Garlic pills have worked for many people I know. They regulate blood pressure... if it's low garlic raises it, and if it's high garlic lowers it. (How do it know?)

Do a search for apple cider vinegar. I read a lot of articles about vinegar being a great medicine.

An Iranian Doctor who was put in prison during the Kohmeiny days discovered a natural way to lower blood pressure. He advised all prisoners who had high blood pressure to drink at least 3 quarts of water per day. It lowered all their blood pressure. The Doc believes that we do not drink enough water and the body compensates by shrinking the arteries, which causes high blood pressure. He claims that when you are thirsty, you are really dehydrated. Drink more water during Y2K and get off your high blood pressure medicine!
