150/102. Yikes. Doc wants to prescribe meds, but I’m anti-drug and have always overcome issues on my own, so I Google how to lower blood pressure:
Here are 15 natural ways to combat high blood pressure.
Okay, I can do this. I already do. I can do it more. Sucks that winter is on the way though. The kids are older now and can be left alone which helps, and we have a doggo again which also helps.
I will start eating MORE less salty foods. I already do. Lots of fruit and veggies so....
Already do. will eat MORE.
This is a big one. I drink teas and sodas, so I will be cutting them out, and see how it goes.
Job isn’t that stressful, compared to others I have had. Home-wise we have been dealing with the basement flooding issue, and other new-homeowner issues, so hopefully that’s a factor that will ease over time.
FUCK YEA CHOCOLATE
This will go hand in hand with the increased exercise. I’m not like SUPER fat, but I have been around 220 (5"11') since high school.
I do not smoke, and am very rarely around second hand smoke.
Another diet change I can deal with.
I like berries. Again, diet.
I tried this in between BP measurements at the doctor just now. It didn’t help. LoL.
WIll try more maybe.
I have cut out milk since my oldest daughter is lactose intolerant, and now I have become as well. Will supplement it somehow.
