Okay, give me a few minutes and I'll try finding the active ingredient in lemons as opposed to oranges, but I have only found information regarding lemons.

Can you add some honey to the water/lemon juice or are you like me, I don't like honey.

Research Wheatbelly by Dr. Davis. Try what he says and see if that helps, it can't hurt, and you might be surprised by the outcome. I was.

Got it. I just read that drinking 2 glasses of orange juice daily, helps lower bp but as I was searching I found this on google

"Natural hypertension remedies that quickly lower blood pressure"

I'm sorry I don't have a clue on how to add a link, if you can't find the site, I will ask my son to add a link but tht won't be for few hours.

If it's so bad I wonder if you have an ulcer. Did you notice I replied to you, and by the way, no apology needed.

Have you spoken to your gp. I used to get awful reflux, but soon became aware of certain food triggers, which I now avoid.

Please keep us informed. I hope you get it sorted out.

The swollen feet can be a big problem from meds. People do not think it is related to the medications but it often is. They can lead to a lot of problems.

Lemon, garlic, and ginger are all sulfur foods. Sulfur takes the charge off of the platelets and keeps them from sticking together sort of like aspirin does. The lemon, garlic, and ginger are also seed products so they contain molybdenum that is necessary for some coenzymes to help us to process the extra sulfur. Sulfur plants also use molybdenum to process the sulfur and they stick some in the seed or fruit most times. I could go a lot farther on how these three work but it would be off topic.

Celery is a diuretic but it has some bad properties too if eaten too frequently. Some people also can't eat celery or celeriac

Oranges and lemons do share some properties but are actually really different in their chemistry. I wouldn't actually think the properties of oranges would be as good as lemons for BP reduction.

S&F just for switching to natural medicine.

Garlic is so great for many problems. I eat it raw and use it every time I cook.

The smell of garlic roasting in olive oil is sexy for women and I don't know why. Brush your teeth.

Right now I'm on 10mg Amlodipine Besylate (Norvasc) and 100mg Losartan-HCTZ (Hyzarr). They started me on 50mg Losartan, but my activity level went way down after I had to recover from an accident and was down for about 6 months. That's when he added the Amlodipine, and other than some occasional dizzy spells with energy loss (not often) I never had any other symptoms.

Without really any hard physical labor and cardio exercise on a regular basis like I used to do a few years back, I can only see getting stronger meds from the doctor. Diet and exercise seems to be the "cure", but it has to be maintained or it's back to high BP and the meds.

I just took my reading and it's at 150/100, but I smoke, a lot in the morning, and I've had a few cups of coffee and didn't take the meds yet.

Ricky, I like your knowledge concerning nutrition. I pay attention to your posts about that.

Hi everyone,

I have high blood pressure and have done or about 20 years - and I'm 39 now.

I never really worried about it as I was only young and didn't really have that mentality to worry about it.

However, what I've found personally which helped was cycling - and I love it!!! I'll never forget telling my G.P that cycling was killing me - I was knackered but he said and I quote "on the contrary cycling is not killing you - the complete opposite infact", and I've never really stopped doing it.

So my advice - keep cycling and try not to worry about it!!!!!

I had this pamphlet that I got from my doctor's office pinned to my cork board for over a year before I finally got around to reading it. Essentially, it says you can lower high blood pressure by decreasing sodium and increasing potassium.

So cut out salt, lunch meats, canned soups and other canned foods, frozen dinners, and condiments like soy sauce. As a bachelor, lunch meats, canned soup, and frozen dinners are about 80% of my diet.


Foods to add to your diet would be oranges, low fat yogurt, sweet potatoes, spinach, bananas, cantaloupe, mushrooms, and low-fat milk. I'm working on it, but I'm not going out of my way to eat yogurt, sweet potatoes, and cantaloupe. I'm trying to eat more bananas, oranges, and mushrooms.

I could always tell when my blood pressure was getting high because I would get headaches. Modifying my diet a little has really cut down on the headaches.

Great thread! I'm sure you are already aware but just in case, Garlic comes in a pill form also. Many benefits and a great natural cleanser.

I had the same problem with Atenelol. The pain got so bad that walking was difficult, lying in bed with my legs elevated provided no relief. My doctor's response was to add HCTZ, and a lecture on how it was a common side effect of the medication, so I had to live with it.

I dumped the medication and the doctor. Will try the celery and beet root, maybe occasionally the garlic. Not a garlic fan.

Beware of Lisinopril. My mother took it for years, and one morning after taking it, her face, eyes, and lips swelled to the size of Shrek. Just recently my sister's doctor switched her to Lisinopril and the same thing happened. I don't know why they keep Lisinopril on the market.

Thank you Ricky. You seem to know your stuff, but I never considered celery could be harmful, so, needless to say I will be checking things out with Dr Google.

Wow! scary stuff.

I know a lot of people don't like the taste of garlic, but there are garlic pills on the market. Lots of them. Just make sure you buy one that is for lowering bp.

Right now I am taking fresh garlic, simply because it's in my fridge, but come Thursday I will go into town and hit the health food store after I have satisfied myself by researching on the net which is the best pill for my needs.

Celery problem www.foxnews.com...

also whatallergy.com...

Also celery is in the Balsam of peru allergy list which is the fifth most common allergy. It is not a typical allergy in the balsam allergy, it is a benzene related issue.

I wouldn't be afraid of celery but if you eat it and notice issues around the time, then investigate if you have one of these problems. Celery is a medicine of a sort. Don't juice celery and drink a lot of straight celery juice. It is all right when needed but it has powerful properties.

Diet is a huge factor if you have high blood pressure - obviously, and I'm sure we all know that!!!!!

I currently weigh 280lbs and have lost 30lbs just by switching my diet - it took me 3 months but I did it. (Slimming World)

Unfortunately I was hit with the fat stick as a kid and have always struggled with weight. However weight is not only the issue - it could be lifestyle - genetics - etc....

My only advice if you don't mind me saying is the old text - a good diet, as much exercise as you can - keep stress to a minimum - positive mental thoughts... all common sense things I guess.

I hope this advice helps....

Thanks for your input. There is so much garlic supplement on the market, but people really must educate themselves s to what they really want the supplement for.

For lowering the bp, the supplement must have a high aliin count. That's what I am researching before I buy.

I know alicin in garlic lowers bp, but so far, there is no supplement available purely for alicin, so supplements high in aliin is a must.

I will check to see if alicin is available, but I'm pretty sure it's not.

Of all the bp lowering foods I take, garlic is number one.

I agree with what you say. I have really changes my diet. In one of my replies I jokingly said that if I was munching on celery, I wasn't eating a cookie. It's true though.

Now, since the swelling has gone down, I am able to walk without pain.

I was turning into a blob. I would drive to the local shop before I ditched the meds, now I walk and I feel so much better.

Yes....that book can be a lifesaver.
I found out I do NOT digest wheat properly.
I'm not celiac, but I am intolerant.
Wheat consumption caused bloat and reflux issues.

Stopped wheat, lost the bloat and stomach issues.....and no longer even have Prilosec [omeprozole] in the house.....it's been two years.

ETA
We also almost totally eliminated sugar from our diet.
Dessert is now half an apple.
Sugar is an inflammatory....not to mention what it does to your insulin.
