This is for information purposes only. I refuse to debate any dorks over it's validity.

My blood pressure has always been a bit high since my 30s usually at 140 something over high 90's to 100 something. I take homeopathic stuff to keep it there as I refuse to take a bunch of drugs. Recently I was talking to homeopathic physicians and was told to drink distilled water and supplement my own minerals which I already do. The key they said was to add Medium-chain triglycerides to the water and follow up twice a day with fruit pectin. It's all natural so I thought what the hell I'll give it a roll, it's hella cheap. I have been doing this for almost two weeks now. My blood pressure last night was 102/68. The night before it was 108 /73. It does this through flushing metals out of the body which is a main cause for major disease including cancer. That's what they told me. They also suggested adding a high quality calcium chelate which I haven't done. lil momma has been on this too as as you all know her blood pressure has been so high it's deadly She is off all meds right now and hanging at 140/92. I will keep you posted on hers. The one thing I notice is I don't get up during the night to drink a bunch of water. This is supposed to be another sign that I was not getting properly hydrated before. Just though some of you might want to know.

Thanks for sharing. I started on drugs after hitting 162/92, which isn't extremely high I guess, but I could feel it.

I've lost 35 pounds, and that has helped immensely and the exercise has returned a lot of my energy, so I suggest that also, no matter what you're taking. I'm going off the meds after my next 5 lbs.

So where would you find medium strain triglycerides? Health food store? Do you have the amounts/measurements you're supposed to use?

Hope this continues to bring you good results, but be sure to investigate what the down side, if anything, of doing this may be.

I did the Heart formula for 6 months which is supposed to clean out your arteries and it definitely made me feel a whole lot better, like oxygen was getting to my brain cell again. I want to try the heavy metal detox and plan on doing the heart formula every Jan 1 for three to six months.

Big - The distilled water has a higher PH (7 vs 5 to 6) and POR rating than tap water, which is why your body is absorbing better. Based on how your body responded you may want to look into alkalizing your diet. A good book is the PH Mircle by Dr. Young.

I have a 3 stage water filter that ionizes the water. I drink water that has higher PH and POR than distilled water to keep my body hydrated and flushed. It is an expensive system, but it is worth it. Before I had to drink Metamucil every morning, but now my digestion works as it should.

You can get both through iherb.com Get the MCT in oil form and mix with distilled water. One teaspoon per 16 oz.

I don't have all the information on the calcium yet but I'll get it some time in the next month. For the record the jury is out on this until I see consistant results over a 3 month period but the results are phenominal right now.

I want to clear up a couple of issues on the water chemistry in your post. I'm not going to go into the health effects, because that is not my area of expertice.

Drinking water from your tap is not pH "5 or 6". Depending on your community it could range from 6 to 8.5. But a pH of 6 would be on the very low side of normal.

Distillation or deionization (not ionization) may give a water that is at pH 7 immediately after treatment; however, over a period of a few hours the pH would drop to 5.6 as the water comes in equilibrium with atmospheric carbon dioxide. The minerals in tap water help it maintain a higher pH even when it is in equilibrium with atmospheric CO2.

What is POR rating? I've been in the water industry for 25 years and have never heard of it. I could not find it on google either.

If you begin taking calcium I would also suggest to take magnesium. Calcium can tend to back things up...

I have also read that x amount of fresh blueberries a day will also help level out a persons bp. I am not for sure because I have a good bp.

High blood pressure is called the "silent killer" because often there are no symptoms, and you can have a stroke and that's all she wrote. Another bad thing about it, is it can slowly destroy your organs, so by the time you discover you have it, it's because you've gone in to see your doctor for blood in your urine (because of kidney damage) or something like that.

I bought a great little blood pressure device on the web for about $80 that I use all the time, even though my pressure is really good now. It's called "OMRON HEM-780". Took it with me on a doctors visit and compared it to what they measured, and it was right on.

Highly suggest getting one compared to using the drug/grocery store ones that are often in need of servicing.

Chiropractic Cuts Blood Pressure
Study Finds Special 'Atlas Adjustment' Lowers Blood Pressure
By Daniel J. DeNoon
WebMD Medical News
Reviewed by Louise Chang, MD
March 16, 2007 -- A special chiropractic adjustment can significantly lower high blood pressure, a placebo-controlled study suggests.

"This procedure has the effect of not one, but two blood-pressure medications given in combination," study leader George Bakris, MD, tells WebMD. "And it seems to be adverse-event free. We saw no side effects and no problems," adds Bakris, director of the University of Chicago hypertension center.

Eight weeks after undergoing the procedure, 25 patients with early-stage high blood pressure had significantly lower blood pressure than 25 similar patients who underwent a sham chiropractic adjustment. Because patients can't feel the technique, they were unable to tell which group they were in.

X-rays showed that the procedure realigned the Atlas vertebra -- the doughnut-like bone at the very top of the spine -- with the spine in the treated patients, but not in the sham-treated patients.

Compared to the sham-treated patients, those who got the real procedure saw an average 14 mm Hg greater drop in systolic blood pressure (the top number in a blood pressure count), and an average 8 mm Hg greater drop in diastolic blood pressure (the bottom blood pressure number).

None of the patients took blood pressure medicine during the eight-week study.

"When the statistician brought me the data, I actually didn't believe it. It was way too good to be true," Bakris says. "The statistician said, 'I don't even believe it.' But we checked for everything, and there it was."

Bakris and colleagues report their findings in the advance online issue of the Journal of Human Hypertension.

The procedure calls for adjustment of the C-1 vertebra. It's called the Atlas vertebra because it holds up the head, just as the titan Atlas holds up the world in Greek mythology.

Marshall Dickholtz Sr., DC, of the Chiropractic Health Center, in Chicago, is the 84-year-old chiropractor who performed all the procedures in the study. He calls the Atlas vertebra "the fuse box to the body."

"At the base of the brain are two centers that control all the muscles of the body. If you pinch the base of the brain -- if the Atlas gets locked in a position as little as a half a millimeter out of line -- it doesn't cause any pain but it upsets these centers," Dickholtz tells WebMD.

The subtle adjustment is practiced by the very small subgroup of chiropractors certified in National Upper Cervical Chiropractic (NUCCA) techniques. The procedure employs precise measurements to determine a patient's Atlas vertebra alignment. If realignment is deemed necessary, the chiropractor uses his or her hands to gently manipulate the vertebra.

"We are not doctors. We are spinal engineers," Dickholtz says. "We use mathematics, geometry, and physics to learn how to slide everything back into place."

What does this have to do with high blood pressure?

Bakris notes that some researchers have suggested that injury to the Atlas vertebra can affect blood flow in the arteries at the base of the skull. Dickholtz thinks the misaligned Atlas triggers release of signals that make the arteries contract. Whether the procedure actually fixes such injuries is unknown, Bakris says.

Bakris began the study after a fellow doctor told him that something strange was happening in his family practice. The doctor had been sending some of his patients to a chiropractor. Some of these patients had high blood pressure.

Yet after seeing the chiropractor, the patients' blood pressure had normalized -- and a few of them were able to stop taking their blood pressure medications.

So Bakris, then at Rush University, designed the pilot study with 50 patients. He's now organizing a much bigger clinical trial.

"Is it going to be for everybody with high blood pressure? No," Bakris says. "We clearly need to identify those who can benefit. It is pretty clear that some kind of head or neck trauma early in life is related to this. This is really a work in progress. It is certainly in the early stages of research."

Dickholtz has been teaching, practicing, and studying the NUCCA technique for 50 years. He says high blood pressure is far from the only thing an Atlas misalignment causes.

"On the other hand, if people have high blood pressure, there is a tremendous possibility they need an Atlas adjustment," he says.

The sodium thing is being questioned for HBP. My doc says not to worry about it unless you retain water (ankles/feet/fingers swell). I don't have that problem, but I'm borderline and have tried low salt with no improvement. I'm normally about 135/90 but have been that way since I was a youngster. I do use light salt just because it's low in sodium, which is replaced with potassium chloride.

I have a digital blood pressure reader at home and at its highest point, it was 149/100.

Took it again later and it was lower, about 141/92.

But I think this is what is giving me a headache.

For the info above, I was looking into getting some MCT as well as magnesium. How did MCT work for everyone? Mix with anything? How much did you take?

Thanks.

Last appointment my BP was 127/81 which is pretty good. I need to continue to exercise, completely cut salt from my diet. Doc told me to keep it up and i can probalby get off them. I am not going to stop, its time for me to get in shape anyways, i been putting it off for to long now.


The meds dont do shit to me really outside of having to pee, but thats because of diuretics.

"extra virgin" is the important part and I wouldn't pay and extra $20 for someone to put it in a capsule for you. Just dip a spoon in eat it, doesn't taste bad at all.

This comes from really ugly coconut trees

i have it as well, but i said **** it and started taking the meds my doc prescribed. I been exercising alot, except for this week asi have had the flu. Last appointment my BP was 127/81 which is pretty good. I need to continue to exercise, completely cut salt from my diet. Doc told me to keep it up and i can probalby get off them. I am not going to stop, its time for me to get in shape anyways, i been putting it off for to long now.


The meds dont do shit to me really outside of having to pee, but thats because of diuretics.

Key is eating healthy and exercise, i guess it took a while for me to get that through my damned thick skull.

Visited the Doctor yesterday. They wanted me to come in.
Took my BP and it was 145/82. Systolic was high, dystolic was normal.
They also attributed my headaches to stress and not my BP, which is a good thing.

So I started to do a lot of reading and research on BP. Obviously, exercise and diet are a huge part of it. I already started making my routine.

Also read that magnesium and potassium are very good supplements to take, especially magnesium.

The MCT thing has my curious. What does it do again exactly and how does it help BP? Lot of saturated fat, which you would thing is not a good thing.

I'll check back in here 30 days from now and post my results. Hoping for at least 10-15 pounds dropped and my BP in the 130/70 range. Goal is in the 120/70 area.

I do have a history of high BP in my family, so I was not completely shocked when I saw the numbers. Just disappointed.
