Following links on natural eating I found a few advocates of fasting as a way to cleanse the body of toxins. Apparently fasting followed by healthy living can cure "any disease" so it sounds worth a try! Tried starting today but found I got too hungry at lunch time (despite having eaten breakfast!) so I had a couple of bananas. Anyway, I read a 5-day detox program for the kidneys in which the first and last days were light fruit meals so I will try that and have a go at fasting tomorrow (for the first time in my life). It really is surprisingly difficult to go without eating, at least for me (I was supposed to do it for charity once but never managed to) and I believe in listening to my body so lets see what my body tells me tomorrow.

Blood pressure 136/83, my best reading for weeks. I don't know if it's the diet/relaxation that's doing the trick or just coincidence that the medicine is starting work. Seems like too big of a coincidence that the moment I start to actively try and heal myself the medicine should start working, so I'm going to believe it's my own efforts for the moment. Later, when I have stable pressure, I will stop taking the medicine and see what happens.
