@JPB,
I thought I was doing just great. My bp was quite normal, but the heart doctor, after going through extensive testing has put me on one bp med. However, I have gone from taking 9 different meds (for various and assundry ails) to one med and I feel wonderful. Perscription meds were doing a job on me.

Now I know why they call it the practice of medicine.

@JPB,
Sorry to hear of this, JPB. I hope it is only temporary for you and that you don't suffer any severe side effects.

Would you mind if you (or I) started a thread for this so we can keep track of you?

@Butrflynet,
Thanks, but no, I'd rather not. I'm not trying to take over this thread either. Just wondering how sglass is handling a more holistic approach. I'm fine.

@Butrflynet,
echoing what butterfly said

my BP was crazy about a year ago (180/100 range), and finally went to a doc, i take a low dose BP med daily and i'm back in the normal range, got some glucose issues and a med for that

i also take cayenne and turmeric, but not in the doses suggested (3 times a day) i just take one capsule each a day, supposed to be good for inflammation and thus good for circulation, joint health

cinnamon is supposed to be good for glucose regulation i've read, but not tried it yet

@Sglass,
A transient ischemic attack (abbreviated as TIA, often colloquially referred to as “mini stroke”) is a change in the blood supply to a particular area of the brain, resulting in brief neurologic dysfunction that persists, by definition, for less than 24 hours. If symptoms persist longer, then it is categorized as a stroke

@djjd62,
I got my bp med lowered recently and I measure the pressure regularly. The first meds I took made me faint and hit my head on the tile floor.. the second meds would send me down to, say, 84/50. Scary ****. I started splitting them to keep in range, found out I could keep normal daily with a half a pill, confirmed it with doctor, got the dose lowered.

There is one yet lower dose and I'm working towards that, though none would be best. I use a lot of garlic, chile pepper, and turmeric/curry in my cooking, because I just like them a lot. I like cinnamon too, but I forget about it. I should figure out a cinnamon/walnut? almond? breakfast cookie - that is, not too sweet.

Glad to hear your good meds news, Sglass..

Be well, JPB.

@djjd62,
I've used cinnamon for blood sugar for several years. If it helps at all, it is subtle. Very subtle. On the other hand, it is surely harmless, cheap, and doesn't smell bad.
