Re: How many of these pills do I need?
Since my 1st post I have received a bp monitor ordered online from Walgreen's. It seems to be made very well. At first I was getting quite a variation in the readings but now that I've had more experience with it the measurements seem to be fairly close and believable. I had planned to go to Walmart and to Walgreen's to compare this machine to their blood pressure stations. When I went to town last night both places had removed their blood pressure stations so I'll either go to the fire station or go to a couple of drug stores while the pharmacist is on duty. For sure, when and if I do go back to a doctor I'll take it with me to compare their readings to my machine.
Now... after 2 weeks of supplements & walking 2 miles or other (paddling a canoe) my bp (according to this monitor) has come down to almost perfection. I've more or less done a lot of experimenting, a.k.a. played with my new toy! On the high side I get 130/83. This morning it was 117/79. Over the weekend girlfriend was here. After 3 martinis and some serious love making I took my blood pressure and wondered if I was having heart failure! 97/73... so, something and I'm quite sure the alcohol and exercise had a little to do with it along with some serious relaxation... but I'm apt to take shot at checking it after a couple of drinks out of curiosity. I do know that abuse of alcohol can cause a chronic rise in blood pressure but a drink now and then will lower it for a short period.... so, if I'm thinking that if this theory is correct then I might just have a couple of drinks before taking a blood pressure test to qualify for a CDL or anything else. On the rest of this subject it appears that the remedies I've employed have done a marvelous job as intended and the last addition was the PABA which seems to have brought about very stable blood pressure measurements. I'm on the lookout for any changes in mood, skin, etc. I plan on keeping up this regimen for at least 30 days then more or less experimenting with removing one supplement at a time while constantly monitoring bp and checking cholesterol at intervals. I don't know the cost of blood lab profiles but if they're affordable I'll do that too.
I just checked my bp after eating a couple of pineapple sandwiches 133/84.. UP! So, there's another clue. (had just finished smoking a cigarette which may skew the results).
