    I have put off this page/blog until I had none enough research so here we go.
    First who decides the right blood pressure the medical system after research came up with 80/120 and this varies by age it also has been adjusted over time.
    Personal belief I think the body regulates the blood pressure as needed if you exercise the pressure goes up now is that bad no that is OK.
    Now if the brain needs more oxygen, your kidneys need more pressure to make them work right, lack of blood to organs of the body, poison, under stress or fight off disease. How does lowering the blood pressure by force/drug deal with this is this a good or bad idea.
    Going back to my belief the body would correct the blood pressure if the cause of high pressure was fixed. Like the kidneys will put out a hormone call renin to increase blood pressure if the flow of blood is not high enough to work properly this is usually cause by the small afferent arteries becoming plugged.
    Through bad life style, bad foods, and poor nutrition which causes artery damage. When the arteries get damaged the body produces a band aid to repair the damaged this is cholesterol and if the damage is not repaired the band aids pile up slowly plugging the artery.
    My belief everyone has the right blood pressure for their present health and everyone has their own blood pressure.
    I know personally and have seen proof that all these chronic problems can go away by reversing the cause.
    Here is a little information from Linus Pauling who won two Nobel Prizes in medical research
    1 Elevated cholesterol
    2 mostly vegan diet and exercise
    3 High stress = high Cholesterol
    4 Low cholesterol levels are associated with higher rates of Stroke, Cancer. And Dementia’s
    5 Reduce bread, pasta, sugar, alcohol, processed food.
    6 Your body is Self-Healing and Self Regulating.
    Cleaning arteries
    3Grams – 5 grams vitamin C per day
    2 Grams L-Lysine per day

    Hope you find this interesting

    Although it can lead to further problems, I think that high blood pressure is a sign of another problem that has already occurred, such as arteries that are no longer as elastic as they once were, or may be partially blocked. When arteries expand and contract as they are supposed to, high pressures are not built up. Although the official word is that medical science does not know what causes high blood pressure, it seems reasonable to me to suspect that as we get older and more sedentary, we place fewer demands on our heart and arterial system, and so our heart and arterial system become less able to respond to higher demands when they do occur. It also makes sense to consider that if we're not regularly flushing blood through our system with the same force as we do when we're younger and more active, that stuff might built up on the insides of the arteries, not only decreasing the interior dimensions but making them less able to expand and contract. This just makes sense to me. As for why some younger people have high blood pressure, or why the normal pressures for some people are higher or lower than others, I don't know, but most people develop high blood pressure as the age, and at a time when other systems are breaking down as well.

    Many years ago the doctor put me on blood pressure medication and that day I said I would do something about it and I did. Change my diet and life style with two months the doctor took me off all medications. Now my average blood pressure is 116/68. The doctor now says I have the blood pressure of teenager I laugh and told him yes and I am not giving it back.

    Mine is somewhat like yours @Martin Alonzo without meds.

    I do watch my sodium intake and try never to eat more than about 1,500 mgs a day and in today's world that's not easy with all the processed food.

    It works for me though...
