low heart rate and high blood pressure-help please
what does it mean exactly when a person has low heart rate and severe hypertension? i have a minor in biology and a major in biopsych and i have never heard of this combination before.
my dad's rating is 190/90, and will soon be put on meds if his condition does not improve, however, most meds, and in fact, most natural remedies for blood pressure will reduce heart rate as well as blood pressure. i am not into the idea of using medication either (i don't believe in changing your body functioning if you can lose weight or do natural remedies to fix problems), so the almost-certainty that he will be on some bothers me. He is now on a diet (he is 5'11 and weighs 230lbs, so he could stand to lose about 50lbs), is fairly active and does not deal with alot of stress.
but i am hesitent to recommend natural remedies that will conflict with his heart rate. any suggestions?
