My partner has been ill recently and it turns out to be high blood pressure. He has been prescribed medication by the Doctor and after only 3 days the results are good so far. He's been advised to cut out salt completely. He's also only allowed meat twice a week (not just red meat but all meat which surpised us). Carbonated drinks of any sort are also a no no. He's also to exercise more. I've said I'll stick to the regime with him as it can only do me good and make things easier for him. He's determined to stick to the regime and lose a little weight ( only about 7 pounds) so he can hopefully get rid of the drugs quickly. I was wondering if anyone here had any experience of lowering their blood pressure through change of diet and exercising and had any advice for us?
