Says sunlight will reduce blood pressure more than blood pressure pills. Get out in the sun.
I had not checked my blood pressure for three months while down south. Been checking it the last few nights and this morning. Three months ago (off of all BP medications) it was "ok" or in other words at about the level where the side effects become equal with the benefits (about 140/80) for my age. After three months of sunshine, losing another 5 pounds, exercising daily with diving, by blood pressure over several readings is down around what it considered "normal" at 120/70. My heart rate is always low (which also is related to BP) at 45-50 at rest. One thing pointed out in research is that when BP medicines lower BP they often increase the heart rate, which can be just as bad. In other words when the pill artificially lowers the pressure, the body reacts and ups the heart rate to make up for it. Pretty amazing.........the body actually knows what it is doing.
