Video appeared right after I posted my comment. This was very interesting information, with statistics about the consequences of high blood pressure. However, I hate it when these things end with "see your doctor." I wish it had discussed common sense approaches to lowering blood pressure naturally. We all know reducing sodium is good, but the last thing people need is to be scared into taking medication unless it's absolutely necessary. What I've gleaned from other articles is: reduce sodium, eat oatmeal every day, walk for at least 30 minutes daily, elevate your feet whenever possible, and eat raw celery [it increases urination and helps pull excess fluid from the body, which makes the heart work harder].

For some reason the video is missing. Something is wrong, but I will try again later.

over the age of 6?! surely that's america predominantly?!

i have hypertension and although medication has helped it, it hasn't really done much to stop my pulse rate from being over 100 bpm at a resting rate.

Andy K: sounds interesting, can you tell me more?

As a teenage school boy I found the ups and downs in mood to be too fast too graph as hormones raged. I had read in a newspaper that hospitals in the UK were painted green because it had been found that this colour relaxed the patients. I thought it would be a great idea to stare at a piece of green paper in order to relax myself, but green cardboard from the stationery shop had no effect. Undeterred, I tried other colours and came upon one which did relax me. I then set about testing the colours of the rainbow in the stationery shop on other people that were stressed and found that everyone has a colour of cardboard that has a soporific affect. The Tension Sheet was born. I soon carried out a test on those with high blood pressure, and found that The Tension Sheet reduced the blood pressure to lower than normal figures in just minutes and recommend that a tension sheet is carried at all times, and that a chill-out room should be painted in the right colour in every tension sufferers home. It is certainly easier to stare at a correctly coloured piece of cardboard or wall for a few minutes than the interference with breathing patterns that most mediation involves.

Good to know, thanks.

Of course, it is good to see a disability overcome, but I was particularly impressed by how function…
