I've was VLC for about 7 weeks to jump-start my 50+ body into fat-burning mode. I've lost 18 lbs since 6/4/14, and I was hoping to improve my 153/90 BP. I've been tracking my food intake periodically with CronOmeter, and I'm getting enough of my... (more)

@CDone, Good point about being outside the averages to begin with. I'll cut back on the sodium. My exercise varies. Some days it's just a 25 minute walk and some back exercises. Today, though, I worked 8:00–10:00 in the community garden I... (more)

My blood pressure has always been that low or lower. It's genetic--got it from my mom, and her father before her. I've asked docs over the years, and none have ever been concerned. The only time I get light-headed is when it's related to allergies. (more)

I would at least rule out electrolyte imbalance. Eat more salt, bone or beef broth and take a Magnesium chelate supplement. Bananas or avocados for potassium. More seafood.

I, too, had blood pressure issues. It was recommended to me to eat more foods with potassium (prunes, avocados, etc.) on a daily basis. This small change for me has helped a lot (I now completely off BP meds!) Good luck!

Eat beetroot, or drink beetroot juice. It contains Nitrate which will lower your blood pressure. It works pretty much straight away and you don't need to drink much.

Is it mainly through diet, exercise, stress free living, not being anxious, etc...? What are some foods to help with blood pressure? Is there a quick way of lowering it if one ate something to spike the high blood pressure?

Eating a clean diet, improving digestion, reducing stress, increasing sleep, supplementing fish oils and GABA...that's a good start down the right road.
