“Healthy Person High Blood Pressure” – That is what I google as I try to figure out how to lower my blood pressure. I eat lots of bananas, avocados and even pure dark chocolate as these are supposed to help. I try to do meditation, but can only sit still for around 5 minutes. My condition is part hereditary and perhaps part psychology – knowing you have high blood pressure certainly doesn’t lower your blood pressure. Every time I have gone to the doctor over the years my blood pressure has skyrocketed in anticipation of having the results show high blood pressure. I started taking my readings on a daily basis recently and find that the numbers are usually 10-20 above average. I drink more water, hearing this clears salt from the body. And its good for overall health. I am active, never sitting still and fairly young at 32 years old. I give lisinopril a try on Easter day. After two doses, this wreaks havoc – I have a case of digestive distress so severe I decide this is not the drug for me and am simply happy to be alive. Today I try bystolic, we will see if there are any severe side effects. It is $40 more expensive each month, but worth it based on the info I find through google.
