    For what it's worth, my high blood pressure was genetic as well. Lifetime medication was supposed to be my only option.

    It's very possible that it could come down to diet, possible food allergy, or a deficiency that can be addressed through diet.

    Nothing to do with snake oil. ;)

    I didn't say that. All I said was the claimed health benefits to consuming skunk butt tea are dubious at best.

    Stop putting words in my keyboard.

    The secret to skunk butt tea is in the spices used to steep it ;)

    Lots of problems related to food allergies. Some foods simply don't agree with all people, and in terms for of being hereditary, it's often the food allergy that is hereditary, not the symptom.

    Testing is the easiest and fastest way to find this. Also expensive.

    Removing one thing at a time works, but can be a slow process.

    I honestly believe that just about every problem resorts back to what we put in our body.

    That is what we thought at first considering my Dad's history. After taking BP meds for a couple years my wonderful Dr. did tests and started trying different diets. Found a certain food group to avoid BP dropped I have been off BP meds for alittle over a year boom 180/80 and now I only have to get my DOT medical every 2 years yay

    First let me say I am of the opinion the human body is a piece of beautiful equipment no matter what form it is in or age. Habits are only a state of mind which can be controllable by the mind.....I happen to also think the mind is a powerful tool.

    I tend to follow the natural order of living and do not buy into bill of goods that are presented as good for me from the outside world. What I mean here is TV advertisements or radio or even displays at stores.

    Common sense thinking, what does it all revolve around....It labeled as money.....and there is a huge difference between need and want.

    The Medical field has come along way with new treatments and discoveries....But herb treatment pretty much been put on the back burner....I talking natural grown herbs....I find no reason not to use the best of both the natural or medical.

    As with any thing it falls down to need or want....How you apply this to good health is a matter of what your thinking is processing.

    I agree that anything can happen at any time. We don't like to think that way but how many times have we heard "someone fell asleep at the wheel" when it could have been a seizure. Who would know ....
