I Fixed It, Now Great Bp

Hi I am a 66yr old male,with a long history of hypertension, and due to my Wife passing away through cancer last January, I have got into many bad ways, heavy drinking smoking etc., and my BP has been steadily rising even with me taking medication.
So last month I decided to fast, (no food, water only) to start with my BP went up slightly, but I stuck with it, on the third day it started to drop, on the forth day it was down a lot, on the fifth day it was normal 135/84 but I was in trouble, I was light headed and very dizzy, just standing up, put me close to blacking out, so I broke my fast, I now realize what I did wrong, I should stopped taking my BP meds when it was dropping, obviously my body after such a long time could not cope with normal BP.
So now I have started again, this is my forth day, I am feeling okay except bad taste and dry mouth with white coating on my tongue (classic fasting symptoms) but after coming back from riding my bicycle I took my BP and was amazed to find my BP was 117/75, I dont think it has ever been that low, I intend to carry-on a bit longer though, as I am getting other benefits, my little aches and pains have gone, my allergy's are clearing up, and I am approaching my ideal weight.
Before fasting read up on it you need to prepare before you start, and it is very important to come off it in a right way.
It is a simple, safe, extremely cheap and effective way to cure your blood pressure, however it is a very, very hard thing to do, but the results show it is well worth it.
I will check in on this site now and again to see if anyone has questions.

This sounds very logical. I'll look for an opportunity to do this that will not affect my job. I should probably take vacation, although I'll need support from my wife and children. I need to do something, because I do not need this anxiety and insecurity.

Hi Stuarl. I read your comment about losing High Blood pressure fast by drinking water and no food. I never had high blood pressure in my life. It started this last May. I am overweight and I dont do exercise. My doctor recommended to take the pill but I refused. After that, I started to eat food without salt and started my daily routine of walkings. Everything changed for better. But now the hbp rised because I stopped the walkings. I am on 134/89. I am not drinking my eight glasses of water. It seems interesting that drinking alot of water reduce the weight and help to lower HBP.
