I've found that Garlic works great to lower blood pressure. It seems to work pretty fast. Today we went to the market and bought more garlic so that I can roast it for her. She loves roasted garlic.
1 head of garlicNettle and Ginger also lower blood pressure. My mom drinks ginger tea with lunch. I put 4-5 drops of the Nettle extract into her coffee.
Take the feathery outer layer off the garlic. Cut the top of each garlic bud about 1/4 inch so that the bud is exposed. Drizzle olive oil over the top and cover with foil. Bake in a preheated 375 F degree oven for about 15 minutes.
Eat the garlic with a small fork.
Today my mom looked at the monkey, she ran ahead to the banana aisle to see it. "Nope, no winking." She said to me as I caught up with her.
All through the store my mom was my mom. We talked about food items, made decisions together... it was like the old days when she had her mind. We had a great time.
She wanted a cup of coffee on the way out, so she got one. Just after a few sips of the coffee and she said to me as I was in the check out, "Susie, there's an angel over there. I need to go see it." She moved closer to the door and just stared intenly while she drank her coffe.
Outside she told me that she saw my dad as we were leaving the store. She was watching him but he didn't look at her.
I didn't have her blood pressure monitor with me so I couldn't check her blood pressure to verify that it was on the high side. I could tell by her hallucinations that it was elevated.
A little ginger tea with some nettle and her blood pressure was back to normal.
Our afternoon has been quiet. No dead people to explain to my mom... she was even able to tell me what was on Dr.Oz today, he gave natural remedies to heal athlete's foot. She remembered the 3 things... lemon, garlic and vinegar. My mom was so happy to remember, she danced in place, excited that she found the words.
