Diet, exercise, and removing stress are key ways of reducing BP. At a friendís recommendation I read a book called ďLies my Dr told meĒ by Dr. Ken Barry. He reviews the research that most people take as gospel. basicly everything the government has ever said about diet is wrong and is slowly making you sick. Big pharma wants you fat and sick so they can sell you more drugs. why did they lower the ďAcceptableď blood pressure levels some years back? Maybe to save lives, or to sell more drugs, you have to decide for yourself. Here is a link to a YouTube video where Dr Barry talks about high BP.
I would recommend reading up on the Keto diet, increase your exercising, and reducing stress.
Basics of Keto
High good fats protein and veggies, low carb. Avoid sugar, wheat, corn, rice, Hydrogenated vegetable oil, fruit. Eat grass fed meats With lots of fats and veggies. You plate should be 70% veggies, and the rest meat.
I would also get a home device for checking your BP. My BP normally read at the low end of the new level to be considered high. When I check my BP at home is is rock solid in the normal level. Seems I have White coat syndrome. It is actually a real thing
Iím 5í 5Ē and 53 years old with a very stressful job that keeps me on the road constantly. I used to weigh 175 with my 34 inch pants getting really tight. I started the Keto diet, and a body weight exercise program. I stopped bringing work home, and internalizing all of the issues at work. Iím still a work in progress, but Iím down to 153lbs wearing 30 inch pants fixing to drop down to 28 inch. I went from not being able to do any pull-ups to doing 3 set of 5. If I can do it anyone can do it.
