I honestly believe that taking those 3 different medications for 1 condition is a 'prescription overkill' as I like to call it. There are many natural alternatives for Blood Pressure control that in my opinion can be just as effective as prescription medication, with little to no side effects.

I personally had high blood pressure, but was able to control it by controlling my eating habits and exercising. What works for me may not work for everyone, but my initial advice is to look into natural ways such as: Low sodium foods to help reduce inflammation; supplementation of garlic, fish oils, as well as calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

Other dietary and non dietary options include, but are not limited to the following list:
Coenzyme Q10
Garlic
Hawthorn
Fish oil
Folic acid
Consistently getting enough fruits and vegetables in your diet
Yoga
Autogenic training
Aerobic exercise
Ayurvedic medicine
Marijuana
Lavender essential oil
Clary sage essential oil
Marjoram essential oil
Melissa essential oil
Ylang-ylang essential oil

In conjunction, I know many people who have benefited from incorporating some of these alternatives into their everyday lives and don't need to take drugs to control it.

Please post back if you have any other questions or concerns regarding the information above...
