Thank ye mum. We try to be in the competitive range. (I have some BP buds that we, being EX TYPE A's) weve rededicated our A'ness into external things. I dont interrupt people nearly as much any more. I dont cut people off and "bird them" whenever I had a bad day at the office or school. My BP, before meds was 180/110 and I was on a fass track , So I got into OHMMING and then meds and exercise . Ive been succeeding for at least 10 years cause I was only 45 when I had the highest BP. A 140/70 isnt bad because your systoly varies up and down all day. What you should be doing is working with feedback and taking your BP and reinforcing your activities when your BP is lower. Try to keep that condition active and take yer BP more frequently. Its worked for me because NOT KNOWING is more stressful than having a high number but knowing it. WHen I know my numbers I can work on them. AM I making myself clear? Its sort of taking biofeedback to another level and concentrating on what keeps your BP lower.
NOW, since I have essential hypertension , I do need the meds but Im slowly weaning myself off the "cocktail " of them. All this is with my docs mentorship. Were gonna write a paper on applied BP therapy.
