Does anyone know how to lower you blood pressure (no meds)?

I have to wait till Thursday to see the Dr again... I'm 25 and have really high blood pressure. I know when it spikes... I get a really bad headache, I'm really irritable and feel very floaty & dizzy. I need some tips for how to lower it when it spikes till I go in again to see what is causing it.

  • I don't know if you believe in herbs or not but they have been working for my family. I taught my brother how to make garlic tea. You just take a garlic clove and stick it in some water cut for about a minute and then drink the water. You can add honey if that makes it more tolerable for you. There are also capsules! Cayanne is also a good one to use with the garlic. check out my home page for my web site info. God Bless!
