Hi, my name is Charlotte Skiles, I'm a nutrition consultant and clinical herbalist with Eat in Peace Wellness Consulting located in Austin, Texas and today's question is how to lower blood pressure with herbs. And I'm very excited to answer this because I'm an herbalist and I love our dear plants that help our health and our bodies. And quite frankly there are no herbs for blood pressure and I really want to communicate this because herbs are for people not their diseases. In other words, there are a handful of ways that people can get high blood pressure in their bodies. There is no one herb out there for blood pressure, it's for the person with the blood pressure. I hope that makes sense to you because it's often misunderstood in the herbal market so to speak. In terms of going to the grocery store and seeing herb and herb for these specific diseases and of course there are plants out there that tone and support the cardiovascular system so in terms of those hawthorn berries a very nice one that has a long traditional use for supporting the vascular system and heart health and cardiovascular health. Things like nervines which is a classification of herbs that calm the nervous system for those people that get very tight and upset with stress they can very much help dampen the system and kind of calm things down. So that would be passion flower or tilia, London flower. Another set of herbs that could be helpful for blood pressure would be adaptogen. So adaptogens help the body adapt to stress and a lot of people have high blood pressure because they are stressed so things like withania or eleuthero could be helpful there depending on the person's presentation. So there really are no herbs for high blood pressure, there's just herbs for the person with high blood pressure and that's what I have to say about that.
