In Reply to: Will high blood pressure go down after an ENEMA? posted by Moon on September 09, 2000 at 11:02:43:
I hve noticed that after eating one of those meals high in salt (chips, velveeta, dips, etc.) blood pressure tends to go and stay at the higher levels for several days. But if the digestive cycle is interrupted, with a laxative or enemas, the pressure seems to come down and stabilize.
I want to know if anyone else has noticed this reaction? Lets remember that HBP is caused by unknown reasons in a large percentage of the cases. And when you go to the doctor, the first thing he tells you is to loose the salt and cafeine. So a big part what they know, is that HBP is diet related! So, is it possible there are other things in your diet that may be causing HBP. (did you know that in Rheumatoid Arthritis, there is a line of thinking that links the desease to food allergies. and food allergies are responsible for many more ailments. you can read more at this site on RA http://www.topcities.com/science/jhackett/index.html --nothing to buy!)
Now then, if the cause of HBP in most cases is unknown, then it's up to the suferer to find out what it is.
If you take your blood pressure on a consistent basis and have noticed a change to the lower after you have done something different, please let me know. If you have coincidentally have taken an enema or a laxative and have noticed a change to lower blood pressure please share (the results only not the experience!) If you have donated blood and found that your blood pressure went down for a few days, let me know please.
I am not a doctor, nor am I qualified to give any type of medical advice. Please consider this question as a sharing of experiences that could ultimately help someone be a better detective, and find what makes the darn thing go up and down.
PS. to Mr. NO!!, thank you for your enlightning contribution.
: Are there any benefits to lowering high blood pressure if an enema is taken.
: Theory: (mine) If high blood pressure is a result of something in your digestive tract. (salt, etc) then if you remove the offending substance with a couple of enemas or a laxative, blood pressure should come down. Right?
