    I measured my blood pressure and it was 135-140 over 80-85. Surprisingly I am taking medical cannabis for spasticity and I measured my blood pressure and it dropped to 115 over 65. I did the experiment several times and the results were the same.

    Great informative video. My BP goes up and down. I just took it and its 183/92. My doctor prescribed Amlodipine Besylate 5 MG tablets. Is that an Ace Inhibitor? If not can you recommend an ace inhibitor? I take CoQ10, nattokase, 3,000 mg Twin Labs Fish Oil, D, K2, cucumin, multi and more. I really do not want to take BP medication but my doctor said have you ever seen a person who had a stroke. I want to lower it naturally. I walk my cavalier everyday 1.5 miles. Eat right. I have scleraderma. Thank you! Look forward to all your emails. I am 78, 123 lbs and active. It’s just the darn blood pressure. Pauline. Los Gatos, CA

    How to lower BP naturally and not take amlodipine besylate 5 mg tablets. Prefer your recommendation to take ace inhibitor.

    What if High Blood Pressure is hereditary in your family as it in mine? I take 20 mg Lisinopril. I cut it in half and take half in the morning and half in the evening.

    Hi Pauline,

    Amlodipine besylate is a calcium channel blocker and is used for the treatment of high blood pressure. We can’t recommend an ACE inhibitor as you would have to discuss your options with your doctor. You can learn more about lowering blood pressure naturally in Dr. Sinatra’s book: Lower Your Blood Pressure in Eight Weeks. You can discuss the recommendations in the book with your doctor to see if a more natural approach is suitable for you. If you would like to consult with an integrative cardiologist, please refer to Dr. Sinatra’s Top Docs List. Some doctors on the list are able to do phone consultations if they are not in your area.

    Hi my blood pressure varies it goes up to 142/89 and the lowest is130/80. I get headaches that is when I know my BP has gone up. I have been drinking habuscus and green tea which has helped.i was wondering if this normal for a 53 yr old. When I go to my doctors office my BP rises 149/90.

    Hi Houry,
    Unfortunately, this is not normal and it is possible you may have labile hypertension, a mild form of hypertension. You may want to consider taking targeted nutritional supplements. Dr. Sinatra discusses supplements for blood pressure in this article. Additionally see more on blood pressure here. You can also refer to his book: Lower Your Blood Pressure in Eight Weeks. Please discuss adding supplements with your doctor.

    Thanks for your extensive video on blood pressure. My mother is 90 +. Has b.p ranging from 210/110 to 137/83. Was on amlodipine 5mg. Does not want to take medicine. With amlodipine 5 mg she had swelling on her feet. Now the Dr has prescribed clindipin 10 mg and olmesartan medoxomil 20 mg and hydrochlorthazide 12.5 mg. She is reluctant to take 30mg. Night before last she had severe palpitation without any sweating or breathing difficulty. During these attacks, her jaws tightens up. It gets relieved after taking antacid like ranitidine. As she did not start taking the medicine, I could not take her to the doctor prescribing the medicine. Then I came across with your article.
    We live in India. Delhi. My mother is otherwise active., very social and always ready to help people. Reads a lot. We are from Bengal., India
    Thanks doctor

    Hi I’m on ramipril 2.5mg.
    I’ve only started checking my own bp and it’s now 151/101 . I’ve checked it numerous times and it’s not gone below 148/99. I’m having awful palpitations and think I need to increase my medication but would rather do it naturally . I’m 58 , do you think it’s possible to do this without raising my tablets ?

    I take 20 mgs of Lisinopril and I was just diagnosed with fatty liver and gallstones.
    I have been on basically, a vegetarian diet and list 20 lbs.
    My BP, at the moment, is 120/69/66.
    The highest, early in the day, was 149/90/66.
    I was having shaking, tremors, when asleep and my hands turned red like sunburn and swell then it goes away when I get up , BP goes down .
    I discovered I need to eat carbs. The shaking went away.
    The BP is lower.
    I think I had been eating and drinking too many things that were high in potassium.
    I did this for my liver and galladder.
    I cut them out.
    What is a good diet?
    Can I reduce the Lisinopril to 15 mgs?
    Thank you.

    Thank very much Dr Sinatra for your excellent suggestions.
    I follow your advice since years and feel very good.
    I have various health issues, but do not make an issue of them. I have good doctors, but do not take any medicines.
    I would appreciate your opinion on a few supplements.
    For instance: Clinical Glutathione? or N-Acetyl-Cystine?

    Much obliged to you and your team.
