"Celery reduces high blood pressure and is a diuretic"

John and Doves,

High Blood Pressure HBP is often referred to as "the silent killer". The normal reading is 120 systolic ( top # ) .

Thanks to a good friend, we pass on the following links which tell of the healing effects of celery. If a person with High Blood Pressure eats 4 stalks of celery a day for one week, his HBP could return to normal, based on testimonies in these links. If it is easier to have cooked celery, then that too is OK for lowering BP.

After one week you need less celery as you don't want the BP to go too low.

Celery is also a diuretic for anyone with kidney-bladder problems ( difficulty urinating ). Canned whole cranberry sauce or cranberry juice is also remedial for that.

There are many links on the internet to explain this further.

Happy crunching :)
