I am currently on blood pressure tables - Valsartan 80mg, Doxazosin 4mg and Amlodipine 5mg.
I am desperate to stop taking some or all of this medication and have been trying the Linus Pauling method.
Starting with with 4mg of vitamin C and 4mg of Lysine in October 2011, increasing to 8mg vitamin C and 6mg Lysine from January 2012.
These are tablet form from a health shop.
I am 60 years old and weigh around 217 pounds. Unfortunately, my blood pressure has not reduced and is hitting 160 /102 having stopped taking the Amlodipine.
Do you have any suggestions or recommendations?
I trust you mean grams (g) not milligrams (mg).
Your are doing much good by taking that much vitamin C and lysine -- in my opinion, it would be unwise to stop. BP can be related to other factors, such as calcium buildups,
and may require magnesium and vitamin K (especialy K2).
