I have heard that both garlic and fish oil can help to lower blood pressure. I have also heard that eating potassium can have a positive effect in reducing high blood pressure, so along with your healthy diet, you may want to also try adding a little bit more potassium. Other than that, it looks like you have everything else covered. Good luck with lowering your blood pressure!

Has anyone heard of natural methods to lower blood pressure? Mine was recently taken as 170/117 !! This is abnormally high for a healthy, non-obese male and I've been told that: a. I may have underlying genetic problems. b. I have to get it down asap, & c. I will likely have to go on beta-blockers. Howevever, before I take drugs, I'd like to try some natural methods-- 1. I've eliminated extra salt. 2. I've increased my exercise 3. I've cut down my caffeine. 4. I'm trying to get more sleep. & 5. I'm trying to reduce stress (hardest of all!) I'm also looking into other approaches. Does anyone know if these work: a. meditiation (I'm heard that this works in some cases, esp. when linked to some biofeedback mechanism where you can measure your heart functions.) b. garlic pills c. green apple & celery juice These last two come from Eastern medicine and are reputed in that tradition to lower your blood pressure. Please post your insights here. Thanks, MCP
