For years I always had a slightly elevated blood pressure. I did not ask for treatment. In the past year it went higher. A doctor gave me a diuretic. He told me it had no side effects, but it did! I quit taking it. I happened upon some You Tube Videos on the motivationaldoc channel. He impressed me and i took his advice in many ways regarding high blood pressure. I can't even say for sure what helped the most, but the last time my blood pressure was checked it was normal.
