  • Techniques To Reduce Blood Pressure?

    Hi everyone, I've not long joined the forum but its been really nice talking to others who are in a similar boat to me when it comes to foreskin. Besides that, I'm sure there's something else I've got in common with a lot of people here, my blood pressure is too high and I really want to find ways that I can help to bring it down to a safer level. I've started to improve my exercise regime by at least making sure that I do more walking and go to the gym around twice a week. My diet is difficult to get under control but I have been trying to cut out the more harmful foods. Besides those two obvious things, apparently there are a lot of other ways to help bring down or raise-up your blood pressure so I wanted to see if anyone on the site had tried any with some kind of success? Carrying out daily breathing exercises to reduce your breaths per minute, improving your sleeping patterns and even just listening to soothing and relaxing music are all meant to help apparently. It seems there are quite a number of devices out there on the market now that can help you too. I'm just having a look at a device called {removed} that is meant to help with blood pressure but I don't really know how it works at the moment. Something else I would like to buy is some equipment that easily monitors my blood pressure, heart rate, that sort of thing. You can now blood pressure watches for sale online quite respectfully priced that would probably be quite handy so I might go for something like that. I'm really determined to do this myself without the help of blood pressure pills as I know there are a lot of personal factors that I can improve on.

    Other than the watches, I quite like the look of the {removed}. It looks pretty easy to use and has plenty of features. You can store 100 readings per person for 2 separate people, not that my partner would really need to use it too as she passes pretty much every test with flying colours. She's always taken care of herself more than I have. Oh and it also makes sure that you have the armband connected correctly.

    I've lowered my dose of Lotensin from 20mg down to 5mg and my BP is even lower than it was on the 20mg. I did this by cleaning up my life a bit. I wasn't sleeping enough and I wasn't exercising. I always figured that since I'm spry and do every activity quickly (e.g. I always run up stairs) that my body was getting plenty of exercise.

    Now I prioritize sleep, even if it means getting less done. And mainly I get cardio exercise. Here's how I fit that in. I have a low-end elliptical machine in my bedroom. So I just REFUSE to take a shower unless I precede it with an elliptical cardio session that gets my heart rate up to 160bpm. It costs almost no time. There's no going to a gym, no extra changing of clothes. Most of the time I precede the elliptical with 4 upper body exercises and sit-ups.

    I eat what I want, but it probably helps that I don't like a lot of meat or saltiness or fats. I only use caffeine when I need special alertness, like near the end of a long drive. Of course I don't smoke.

        thanks for the sharing. I hope you find what you're looking for. Take care

          It's always better to quit smoking completely to prevent any disease, but you can also try switching to vape. It's not as harmful to your body as cigarette smoke, and it's not as addictive.

            The best way for most guys to get their high blood pressure under control is the lose weight.

            The best way for most guys to lose weight is to build some muscle mass. Muscle mass burns calories for its own maintenance even when you are doing nothing.

            Years ago, I was a member of a Meetup Group called Michigan Healthy Living (which was great while it lasted. It eventually petered out. I was the group's die-hard last member. I knew the group had died out from dwindling attendance when I was the only one to show up at the "last meeting."). We met once each month in the Starbucks Coffee section of a Barnes and Noble Bookstore to discuss a selected book on diet and/or exercise....and sometimes even dabbled in things like meditative practices (Some of us attended introductory sessions in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) together as a group).

            One classic fitness book we reviewed was "Body for Life" by Bill Philipps. It was a runaway best seller, and proceeds from the sale of the book were donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation for terminally ill children. The major takeaway message from that book is that the best way to lose weight is to gain muscle mass. Muscle mass is metabolically expensive for the body to maintain. Muscle mass burns calories for it's own maintenance even while you sleep.

            Aerobic exercise (aka Cardio exercise), in contrast, is nearly not as efficient at producing a caloric burn. You have to run 35 miles to burn off a midday snack like an apple, or a candy bar, which are typically about 200 - 250 calories each. No one can possibly run 35 miles each day. That's more than a marathon!

            However, you can gain muscle mass using resistance training. The publication of "Body For Life" went a long way towards knocking the then very popular aerobics craze off of its pedestal.

            You don't need fancy exercise equipment. Body-weight exercises will do.

            Yours truly, the Science Monk, has not abandoned aerobic exercise though. There are fitness buffs that now ask if you even have to do cardio at all. I still think some blood-pumping exercise has merit, especially in controlling depression, and keeping me mentally on an even keel.

            The Science Monk's 6-minute-per-day minimal exercise system was previously posted here:

            I declared myself finished restoring with 3/4 erect coverage (CI-8.5) in 2005. I primarily used T-tape, strapping up and around my waist.
            I've participated in NORM meetings in San Diego, Los Angeles, Seattle (RECAP), and Ann Arbor, Michigan.

            Every doubt, reservation, or concern I had about my restoration was resolved by achieving additional foreskin LENGTH.....So just KOT !
