    Have you heard of and used Curry leaves (Kadi Patta) for medical purposes?

    My mother-in-law used to suffer from incredible high blood pressure in the nights - despite medication. Her doctors blamed 'anxiety' (to which she couldn't relate) and prescribed tranquilizers and sleeping medication as an emergency medication. Then, when everything looked very hopeless to us a befriended ayurvedic doctor asked her to try having two glasses of boiled curry leaves (1 cup leaves) for several days - and the miracle happened - since 3 weeks her blood pressure is fully under control! I was wondering if others have tried and seen similar effects on their blood-pressure?

    I have heard of high blood pressure but not tranquilers or sleeping meds as the treatment for this .If meds are no help and she is stress about something then her blood pressure will  rise .

    I wrote an article on the benefits of turmeric taken in capsule form along with pepsin, the active compound in table pepper. http://artist101.hubpages.com/hub/The-b … y-Diseases
    A very outstanding herb. With its numerous pathways, and ability to inhibit cancer, and inflammation, I am not surprised that it lowered her blood pressure. Her high blood pressure maybe a "symptom" of body inflammation impacting blood vessels, and causing them to constrict, thereby contributing to the high readings. It's no wonder it is called indian gold. http://www.amazon.com/Best-Naturals-Pot … B005MZXLKY
    The only side effect that I noticed was "hot flashes" It could aggravate acid reflux, or GERD.
    Olive leaf extract has been found in recent clinical trials to lower blood pressure as well. May be taken under the tongue, to bypass all body organs, and straight into the blood stream, or drank in as a tea. Along with the ability to lower blood pressure it also has anti vral, anti inflammatory, as well as anti infective properties. http://www.amazon.com/Foods-Olive-Glyce … B0019LWTWQ
    With the recent scares about blood pressure, and cholesterol drugs causing diabetes, and kidney failure, its best to find a natural approach.

      Hi Artist - even i have written an article about Curcumin - but the plant I asked about is called Kadi Patta - or Curry leaves - so I can't help it but feel your answer is a bit 'commercial' motivated? Why all these links?
