Doctors David Samadi and Marc Siegel of the FOX News Medical A Team share some useful home remedies for people with slightly raised blood pressure.

Dr. Samadi explains that garlic has been a popular medicinal item as far back as ancient Egyptian history. Many studies have shown that it may boost the immune system, help with cardiac issues or even aid in the prevention of some forms of cancer. He goes on to point out however, that garlic is proven to have only marginal effects on blood pressure and should be used as complement to medical treatment, not a replacement. He goes on to warn patients choosing to use garlic that anacin, the chemical in garlic that helps dilate the blood vessels is eliminated if the garlic is cooked and should be eaten raw instead.

Dr. Siegel adds that watermelon, curry, and parsley have all been shown to positively effect blood pressure by stimulating the production of certain amino acids by the body. Despite these positive effects, he urges patients to seek out their doctors first and inform them of their symptoms, as failing to do so can result in a stroke or heart attack.

This is not a paid endorsement, even though it’s going to sound like one. This is just a true account of my experiences with the amazing Dr. David B. Samadi and his incredible staff in the time leading up to and following my recent robotic prostate removal surgery.

I was discharged from the hospital the day after surgery and my catheter was removed in four days. A month and a half after the surgery, I took a two week car trip to Canada by myself. Two years after the surgery I married a wonderful woman and we are living a happy life together...

Several weeks ago I found myself not waking from a nightmare but waking into one. This was after being diagnosed with cancer. My life was spiraling out of control and reaching the epitome of despair. In a true sense of the word, I was experiencing an existential crisis. At moments I even questioned whether my life was worth going forward.
