Three weeks into treatment patient’s blood pressure was 110/78. The highest blood pressure reading during treatment was one instance of 126/83; the rest were below 121/82.
Patient had a long history of "white coat hypertension" (anxiety at being in doctor’s office with increased blood pressure). Patient used relaxation- breathing technique and was able to lower blood pressure issues associated with her anxiety at being in a doctor’s office. She said she was feeling much better in general and was given the recommendation of looking into neuro/biofeedback to help with white coat hypertension.
Patient happily reported no longer having any episodes of migraines or depressive/anxious thoughts. She also said she was really excited about no longer being reliant on medication. She was pleasantly surprised that simple diet changes and nutritional supplementation could have such a big impact on her cardiovascular health. At a recent follow-up appointment, her blood pressure was still under good control even on days that she did not take her supplements and when she was under significant stress.
