Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
What do you recommend I do to lower my high blood pressure?
A: For high blood pressure, I recommend ingesting hawthorn berries, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, chrysanthemum, and cassia seeds.
Try these remedies:
1. Boil tea from chrysanthemum flowers, hawthorn barriers, and cassia seeds. Drink regularly three times per day.
2. Take garlic oil capsules to clean out the arteries; capsules are better because they will not over-stimulate the taste buds or digestive tract.
You may find these specially formulated Traditions of Tao herbal supplements helpful for your high blood pressure: “Creative Balance”, “Ancient Treasures”, “Internal Cleanse” and “Emotional Tranquility” teas and the “Calm-fort/Sleeping” formula. Of course, discuss with your physician before beginning any new health regime.
