    Default Got High Blood Pressure? Try Yoga Instead Of Meds

    About 12 million Americans take medication for high blood pressure. In fact, there is probably someone close to you that is either on medication or struggling with their blood pressure levels. It’s a rampant issue.
    Blood pressure meds come with a host of unpleasant side effects, like cough, fatigue, headache, dizziness, and even diarrhea—not ideal. But it turns out there may be a way better solution that is as effective as drugs without all the unwanted side effects. It’s yoga.

    When I read the first sentence..."About 12 million Americans take medication for high blood pressure," I was reminded of a National Health Institute statistic. NHI estimates that 71 million American adults suffer from high blood pressure, but 13 million don't know it...they're undiagnosed. The American Heart Association states that 103 adult Americans have high blood pressure and millions don't know it. So, let's hear it for the 12 million taking their meds. IMHO, the worse place to take a blood pressure reading is at the doctor's office.

    Hmm. Mine's slightly variable at the doctor's office, but when I give blood, it's always about 112/62.

    I envy your excellent blood pressure!! But, given your hard-working, vivacious lifestyle, I wouldn't expect anything but.

    Truth? For most of my life I was overweight, 5'6" and 160, even though I was still farming and gardening every summer. BP was 140/something and I was on hypertension meds. When I retired and quit smoking (because I could no longer afford it), my weight ballooned to 237.
    I got up one morning, looked at the whale in the mirror and said, "This is coming to an end." I had already been diagnosed as diabetic and had eliminated grains and sugars. To this I added a homeopathic weight loss formula, although at the time I didn't know it was homeopathic and might not have tried it had I known. The fact is, it worked brilliantly — converting me into a believer. The weight melted off and with it went the BP med. I maintain a weight of 135-140 just by sticking to my diabetic food plan and getting routine exercise.

    Yeah, I remember the homeopathic weight loss; that was the time I visited you bringing wine and chocolate just when you were not to be eating such things. My bad! But you did it and it worked!

    Oh ho ho, you can be sure I enjoyed them later! And yes, it worked like magic. Several local friends were impressed with the change in me and ordered the formula too. The neighbor across the road dropped close to 100 pounds and looked terrific! Sadly, neither of them was able to maintain it; they gradually reverted to old eating habits and gained it all back. I was not about to let that happen!

    Indeed it was. Started out at $20/bottle, today they're asking for $100. That put off at least one friend. A shame...
