Re: How to bring down b/p right away.
The most effective tool for bringing down High Blood Pressure is a small meal, low calorie, low carb, frequent eating Diet, IMHO. It started working for me quite quickly, but the longer I was on the diet, the lower my readings.
My chronically high blood pressure came down to very constant and healthy levels through healthy diet, but I've also lowered my blood pressure through exercise, avoiding many things, like caffeine, and taking the most effective blood pressure medications.
For all of 2003, my average blood pressure averaged 151.2 / 95.7, based on 1032 readings. As a result of diet, exercise, etc., my average blood pressure for all of 2008 was 122.1 / 72.1 based on 2543 readings.
That means that, for every day, every hour, every minute of the entire year of 2003, my blood pressure was around 151.2 / 95.7; or one step in the grave.
Diet, exercise, lifestyle changes and taking effective medication obviously worked quite well for me, but diet is the most important.
