Blood pressure, heart , depressionMy blood pressure readings continue to be relatively high,despite several anti-hypertensive and cholesterol lowering prescription meds
I am taking, plus they have side effects, like erectile dysfunction and, with the diuretic, it has me going to the bathroom so much, I am somewhat limited socially, because I don't know when it will kick in. My readings have been from
137/84 to 150/90, sometimes higher, it fluctuates.
I am 59, had a quadruple bypass in 1996. The last tests I had done said the lining around my heart was thin and the doctor had
thought I had congestive heart failure, but after blood tests, it was determined that there was a low incidence for that, at this time. Lasix was added to my list of prescriptions.
I am about 5 ft.8, medium to heavy build, hard to lose weight, even though I have consciously cut back on what I eat. I have had problems with depression, anger (currently being treated for PTSD by VA),hypervigilence,
social anxiety,have bouts of insomnia, worry and anxiety, mind continually busy with thoughts, am overly critical sometimes of myself and others, moody.
I have cravings for sweets, coffee (decaf), though I have begun to cut back. I have increased vegetables in my diet and am taking some herbs, such as CoQ10, Strauss Heartdrops and lecithin and chelation formula, though, so far, I can't tell what effect they are having.
Though I don't like crowds,
I feel better having some kind of noise in the background, such as t.v.
Feel guilty if I am not engaged in some type of
goal-oriented pursuit or
What can I take to help lower my blood pressure, strengthen my heart, ease the depression and get rid of ths erectile dysfunction?
Thanks for any homeopathic remedies you could suggest.
