    Default High Blood Pressure. Cures through training???

    My mate at work has been told he has high blood pressure. He aske me what is the best way to lower it.

    I told him that training MMA is a great way to do this.

    Is this correct?? I don't want him going training and keeling over.

    Could anyone (possibly Rosi) tell me any good stuff for bringing it down.

    Thanks in advance.

    tell him to put on his own show mate, that'll sort it right out........
    if you think its easy stop now

    no one achieved anything by doing nothing

    never argue with a fool

    if fighting is a pursuit rooted in pain, you will find the best teachers have often absorbed the most punishment themselves......and remained standing

    in all seriousness, depending on his doctors report / recommendations,

    stop smoking [ if he does ]
    cut down on the achohol [ if excessive ]
    begin moderate exercise at first [ doctor permitting ]
    re address his diet [ if poor ]
    outside influences , ie work [ his job ? ] personal circumstances ???
    is he currently on any medication ?

    on and sledge, rosi iirc [ will be corrected ] has a doctorate in computer's / maths i believe - not medicine, she is doctor sexton not gp sexton. i may be wrong though.

    Many thanks.

    He is of Indian haritage so I think he has probably had a high fat diet for years. He is not that over weight but does no exercise and smokes
    Does not drink a load but does drink some.
    I have passed on the advice but I think he knew the answer already as he is sat in the canteen with a salad.
    I think he was hoping I coiuld come up with a magic answer.

    before one of my fights i had to see the doctor. this was about 3 hours befor the fight.
    He took my blood pressure and said "mmm its a little bit high" and then went on to explain that it maybe a nervuse reaction to seeing him, he called it "white coat syndrome". i like to think it was "fear of getting the shit kicked out of me syndrome"

    not totally thread related so apologies

    I have low blood pressure, which apparently is considered worse (well, harder to treat effectively)

    Anyway, enough about me
