It has been more than a month

Since I crossed the borderline. Initially, the knee jerk reaction has helped as I quickly changed my diet and ate medication. The BP went down quite significantly, and I believe medication helped. But I guess – I quickly somewhat went back to what I normally do. I need to be extremely careful in this, as long term crossing the borderline will mean that I will be at an extremely high risk of heart attack and stroke! This is crazy.

Few key things that needs to be changed immediately:

  1. Regular exercises – this has started. I have a daily exercise regime that consists of walking up arboretum. It has been quite successful. In fact, by doing this I was able to reduce some weight. Very successful indeed.
  2. Reduced Salt Intake – this is where I failed. In the past couple of weeks, I have been neglecting my diet. I need to go back at eating raw food, mainly salad and low salt food. Water retention causes more fluid in the blood and causes blood pressure to go up.
  3. Greens and Fruits – same goes for item 2, starting tomorrow my diet will be more of these two things. In fact, I intend to completely cook on my own for the next one week and will skip the salt. Completely. I need to take drastic measure and see whether there’s impact to my BP.

I am hoping that I am able to bring this under control. It has been a month and changes is too minimal and I am not yet off the danger zone. Seriously. Time to push hard, push very hard.
