I saw everything gave a good and thorough answer, but I have to tell you, high blood pressure is called the silent killer for a reason. It kills you while you feel just fine. If you blood pressure is high enough to have been prescribed Lotensin, you will not be able to lower your blood pressure enough to avoid a stroke or heart attack with garlic. If you have high blood pressure, you should already have quit smoking and lost weight. You are playing Russian roulette with your life by not taking that medicine. You want to die, or end up as a vegetable in a nursing home for the rest of your life, because it was too inconvenient to take a pill? They'll be pouring pills down a tube surgically inserted into your stomach because you can't swallow, if you live. You won't be able to turn over in bed without someone helping you. Does that sound more convenient to you. You really don't realize the danger you are putting yourself in. Is this fair to your family to risk your life and health. If you don't like that blood pressure medicine, tell your doctor who can so easily try you on another.

plants and herbs can give long term effects and with nearly no side effects.

1. Ginseng: Ginseng normalizes high or low blood pressure by lowering blood sugar. (I usually take some in tea)

2. Oat Fiber: Lowers cholesterol by helping prevent re-absorption of bile acids from the small intestine.

3.Fenugreek: Reduces blood sugar. May inhibit the intestinal absorption of cholesterol.

1-2-3, introduce into your diet and your blood pressure should go down.

Blood pressure measurements are the result of the force of the blood produced by the heart and the size and condition of the arteries.
Many factors can affect blood pressure, including:
* How much water and salt you have in your body
* The condition of your kidneys, nervous system, or blood vessels
* The levels of different body hormones
High blood pressure can affect all types of people. You have a higher risk of high blood pressure if you have a family history of the disease. High blood pressure is more common in African Americans than Caucasians. Smoking, obesity, and diabetes are all risk factors for hypertension.
Most of the time, no cause is identified. This is called essential hypertension.
High blood pressure that results from a specific condition, habit, or medication is called secondary hypertension. Too much salt in your diet can lead to high blood pressure.
Benazepril is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. Benazepril is in a class of medications called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It works by decreasing certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly.
Benazepril controls high blood pressure but does not cure it. Continue to take benazepril even if you feel well. Do not stop taking benazepril without talking to your doctor.
The DASH diet (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) is a diet promoted by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (part of the NIH, a United States government organisation) to control hypertension. A major feature of the plan is limiting intake of sodium, and it also generally encourages the consumption of nuts, whole grains, fish, poultry, fruits and vegetables while lowering the consumption of red meats, sweets, and sugar. It is also "rich in potassium, magnesium, and calcium, as well as protein and fiber."
A healthy diet and lifestyle can reduce your risk of:
* Heart disease, heart attacks, and stroke
* Conditions that lead to heart disease, including high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obesity
* Other chronic health problems, including type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and some forms of cancer
Eat a low-cholesterol, low-fat diet, which includes cottage cheese, fat-free milk, fish, vegetables, poultry, and egg whites. Use monounsaturated oils such as olive, peanut, and canola oils or polyunsaturated oils such as corn, safflower, soy, sunflower, cottonseed, and soybean oils. Avoid foods with excess fat in them such as meat (especially liver and fatty meat), egg yolks, whole milk, cream, butter, shortening, pastries, cakes, cookies, gravy, peanut butter, chocolate, olives, potato chips, coconut, cheese (other than cottage cheese), coconut oil, palm oil, and fried foods.

before i give tips i want to say you are taking a risk doing this. i work in icu and see many people on the ventilator and unresponsive after a stroke from high blood pressure. i see many heart attacks as well. once you have had a heart attack, scar tissue replaces the cardiac tissue and is much less conductive causing heart blocks and dysrrhythmia's, increasing your chances of complications or another heart attack or stroke.

first off, quit smoking and begin an excersise program. decrease the amount of salt you eat and increase your fruits and vegetable (which are higher in potassium and will rid the body of excess salt to lower bp). magnesium is a mineral that will also lower blood pressure by relaxing the smooth muscles in the blood vessels. also limit your caffeine intake to one cup of coffee a day or none at all.
oh i almost forgot: in many studies they found dark chocolate have chemicals that relax the smooth muscle in the blood vessels as well and help lower bp. I think they sell a good one called chocovive or something. also like someone said above...lower stress and garlic (believe it or not) can help as well.

Celery is very good for high blood pressure 4 Celery Sticks a day and a lot of water can do wonders however if you are still smoking and you have high blood pressure I would recommend that you drink water after each cigarette it puts oxygen back in the blood since smoking constricts your blood vessels but seriously you need to take your medication high blood pressure can be deadly just work hard at it its hard but you can do it

Why do hate taking pills? Does it give you a bad side effect? If it does, consult your doctor. You should never stop taking your blood pressure medications without consulting your doctor. You could die from it.

Stress causes blood pressure to go higher and wait gain. Quitting smoking is a good idea if you take Chantix. This pill is a miracle for people. My girlfriend when she wasn't pregnant didn't smoke for a long time but she had to quit Chantix because she got pregnant.

try this health website www.realage.com

This is not spam and it's free, it is full of health information. I go there

all the time. It's run by dr. oz, the doctor that is on Oprah Winfrey all

the time.

I learned that cinnamon can help about 1/4 teaspoon a day.

Unfortunately once the disease of hypertension is established generally it is not possible to control your blood pressure without medication.


However being no more than your ideal weight, doing regular,vigorous exercise for ever, and reducing your salt intake may contribute to lowering BP.
