    high bp -- what to do

    i have been on a cycle for 3 weeks and it is going good. the problem is i just got this sinus cold that is kicking my ass(kids brought it home). i am taking all kinds of sinus meds
    i went to the dr today and my bp was 160/90-HOLY SHIT-- he was not greatly concearned cause all the sinus meds but i have to go back to get it checked in july
    i know my bp is usually 140/80 average(on store machines) and it goes up at drs office cause worrying about it,also being on cycle and on sinus meds.
    my question is is there a natural suppliment or herb or a way to bring it down without bp meds
    also if go on bp meds is it a for life thing or as needed(like when on cycle)
    thanks bros

    #1 thats not bad bp being on a cycle(from what ive heard).#2 how big is your arm? the bp machines in the store are to damn small if your arm is over 16" it wont give you a good reading.always have your doc check it with the large cuff. when your bp gets up to like 160/108 then you better do something.you might try some garlic tabs,it should help you.advice from a newbie again.

    Thats your problem bro.you need a large cuff.also bigger bro's like yourself are going to have a highier bp then smaller guys and thats normal.

    Cool Speaking of inches . . .

    Good feedback here, but one note is in order: The criterion for usnig a large B/P cuff is a bicep over 12" (not 16").

    sinus meds don't most have effadrine in them? plus if your bloated a bit BP will go up 160 is nothing to worry about, but don't want your lower one mush over 90 for very long peroids of time.

    I understand your concern but 160/90 is still borderline on the distolic side. If you on a cycle and your BP is like that you should feel blessed. Mine has been MUCH higher than that for the last 12 years, I have had to work my ass of to try to get it to about that level without meds.

    In my opinion, that is nothing to worry about. It's a very good thing to keep an eye on regardless.

    Take care,

    DMX

    What no advice.....
    garlic bro, if you can stand eating it do a clove or even 2 a day if you are really concerned. Plus hawthorne berry extract is proven to lower bp as well. You could also go with the garlic extract tabs found in sup stores if you don't want to eat the real thing. This should drop you atleast 10-15 points if not more.
