How I reduced my blood pressure.

March 26, 2017

I am not qualified to give advice on blood pressure as a psychologist, may be as a nurse, but probably not. So, I will only tell you what I did tonight to lower the BP and it worked to reduce it from 180/120 to 120/80 and get rid of my tension headache in one hour. I took my blood pressure an hour ago. It was 178/115. I exercise breathing deep and relaxing for half an hour. I took 25 mg Metoprolol from my family doctor and 81 mg coated Aspirin. I took a very warm shower for half and hour and¬†completed my breathing exercise for the other half. My BP is now 120/80 and I am somewhat surprised how easy it was to lower it to normal. I know that I have to do a lot more to regulate my BP, but for tonight that is what I did so I don’t have to go to Emergency¬†Room in the hospital at 10 PM. Again, I was a bit surprised how easy it was to lower my BP with a hot shower. I welcome responses. Eli
