Natural ways to lower blodd pressure
There is lot of material on net on how to lower high blood pressure.
I am, however, interested in personal experiences.
Are there any members who have been able to lower blood pressure through diet change / exercise / life style change etc. And how?

100% Lifestyle change
I was in an extremely stressful job and had not taken sufficient time off work to recover from surgery and over a few months, my blood pressure which had been around 140/90 rose to around 170/120 and my resting pulse rose around 100 and skipping heartbeats. My doctor gave me blood pressure tablets but they made me feel so ill that I threw them away after 3 days.
I quit work and moved abroad. Within 2 months of moving here and with NO diet or exercise or medications, my blood pressure was normalised (120-123 / 80) and my resting pulse had reduced to high 70s.
Now, following diet this year and reducing my weight (I'm now around 30kg less than 1 year ago), my resting pulse is around 60-64 and I haven't had my blood pressure tested recently, but last time I did (before I lost weight) it was still normal.
Lifestyle, lifestyle, lifestyle all the way.
