Regarding my recent post on struggling to achieve a healthy balance, it has become apparent that I must take the issue a bit more seriously.

I’ve officially joined the 65 million Americans (American Heart Association) with high blood pressure and the condition definitely has my full attention.

A Yummy Batch of Oatmeal Cookies

So, the plan is to try the natural approach. Over the weekend a search turned up this report “High Blood Pressure Remedy Report” so, I’m reading up and going grocery shopping for the healthy stuff.

Although these were yummy cookies , the only healthy ingredient was oatmeal.
