Pressure Ease for high blood pressure?

I've recently be having some problems with borderline-high blood pressure. I pretty much am doing most of the things that I should to lower it (at least the ones that apply) but it's still up there. I am dealing with a lot of stess at work plus it does run in my family so this doesn't help. I've been looking into natural alternatives and came across Pressure Ease so I was wondering if anyone has tried it, was it successful and did you have any problems?

Pressure Ease for high blood pressure?

(((Pet Lover))) are you on HRT? I had high blood pressure for a while, and found that it was associated with having low estrogen levels. Once I got my estrogen dosage up where it needed to be, the blood pressure came back to normal

Interestingly enough, the main ingredient in Pressure Ease is black cohosh, which is a phytoestrogen:
  Quote:
HERBAL INGREDIENTS: Proprietary blend of standardized herbal extracts of Black Cohosh (Cimicifuga racemosa), Cayenne (Capsicum annum), Garlic (Allium sativum), Ginger Root (Zingiber officinalis), Ginseng (Panax ginseng), Goldenseal (Hydranstis candensis), Valerian Root (Valeriana officinalis), Kelp (Fucus visiclosis), Maitake Mushroom (Grifola frondosa), Olive Leaf (Olea europaea), Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata), Skullcap (Scutellaria laterifolia), Hawthorne Berry (Crataegus oxyacantha), Celery (Apium graveolens), and Parsley (Petroselinum sativum).

Personally, I think that replacing the estrogen with a bio-identical estrogen (same as my ovaries made) makes more sense than using herbs (which may be natural to the earth but are not natural to my body)... but I'd rather try herbs than prescription bp meds. Just my though.

Pressure Ease for high blood pressure?

Yes, I finally found a doctor willing to work with me. She first put me on Testosterone/Progesterone (1/3/05). My blood pressure was fine until some time after 1/19 (donated blood, BP ok). When I saw her again on 2/4, it was really high. This time we added the Estrogen (all are bio-identical) coz I told her I still wasn't feeling normal even though my estrogen level was considered normal. I was supposed to monitor the BP but it took me a couple of weeks to remember to do it. When I did, it was either borderline or really high (185/97 highest reading so far). I'm thinking it may be work related coz of the major stress but I was hoping that with everything positive that I do, it would offset it. I do know that since my surgery (total) in 12/02, a lot of little problems have come up and I spend a lot of time doing research, which just adds to the stress.
