HIGH/LOW BLOOD PRESSURE
If you are on medication for High Blood Pressure (HBP) or have a history of Low Blood Pressure (Low BP), you may experience some symptoms of Low BP during your first two weeks of the program. These symptoms include:
- Blurry vision
During the first two weeks of the program, at all times you should carry with you a small Ziploc baggie containing SALT (keep this in your pocket or handbag).
Should you experience the symptoms described above, repeat the following several times:
- Lick your finger
- Dip it in the salt
- Lick your salty finger
The salt will normalize your BP within 2 minutes and the symptoms will disappear.
If you are on medication for HBP and this happens once or twice, it is your body adjusting to the program. If you are on medication for HBP and these symptoms occur two or more times in one week, you should contact your physician to discuss adjusting your medication dosage.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
