Blood Pressure continued….

I emailed Dr. Fisel Friday night about my whacked out blood pressure readings this past week and received an answer late last night.  Here is what he suggested:


I would recommend consulting with a cardiologist, who can make sure no heart or kidney irregularities are contributing to your hypertension.

In the meantime, the following treatments may help to get your blood pressure under control: The DASH diet, which has been proven effective for treating hypertension-detailed information can be found at http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/public/heart/hbp/dash/new_dash.pdf


The herbs Hawthorn, Motherwort, Arjuna, and/or Tilia europa (which may sometimes be found in combination formulas); The herb Rauwolfia is a potent herb that can be very effective for lowering blood pressure, but should only be taken under the guidance of an experienced practitioner; Vitamin E, preferably in a natural, mixed-tocopherol form; The mineral magnesium, at a dosage of 500 mg per day; The nutrient CoQ10, at a dosage of 300 mg/day.

Sincerely,

Dr. Matthew Fisel

This is the first time that I have ever had a doctor suggest natural remedies instead of a prescription pill to fix a symptom.  I'll be researching the DASH diet today.  I'll also stop by somewhere to get today's reading.

I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
