For High Blood Pressure, there is a highly effective herb that is Giloy ( Tinospora Cordifolia ). Buy a tincture and take 10 drops daily for 15 days. Monitor your Blood Pressure after 15 days. Continue if shows any positive effects.
Please do not take any other medication with this, as Giloy is very effective. It may lower your blood pressure than normal. Kindly go through the following procedure for 20 days. Revert back with results. Take 5 drops of Gymnema Sylvestre ( Gudmar ) before every major meal.
You can buy a tincture of Tinospora Cordifolia ( Giloy ) and Gymnema Sylvestre ( Gudmar ) from a homeopathic drug store or online from websites. Keep a check on your Diabetes and Blood Pressure readings. Do not panic, if the readings fall below the normal range. Just decrease the dosage
