Hello Doctor! My age is 32. I have bp problem since 2 months and cervical spondylitis. Dr. has asked me to take tablet cardace am 5 daily. Recently I have made some changes in diet to get rid of bp like I am using rock salt instead of table salt. I am having jaggery. I keep drinking warm water with lemon daily 3 to 4 times in a day when I feel my bp is rising. I have eliachi, tomato in salads. I also have digital bp machine at home to keep check on bp. I have noticed whenever my back neck starts painting my bp rises to 140/90 otherwise it is 125/85. Does bp rise due to cervical pain. Which bp numbers are risky. I do not want to keep habit of taking bp tablet. I have kept it handy though that whenever I feel too uneasy then I take it. Are these changes going to help me. Kindly reply with your opinion as to what else can be done to keep BP in control.
