Do you have anything for slight blood pressure? I have branch vein occlusion in my eye. I have had painful shoulders as you describe for years. I thought it was poly myalgia rheumatica returning but I think it was fibromyalgia. I have acupuncture and Bowen massage.

Crataegus (Hawthorn) has been used almost forever for both slight high and slightly low blood pressure, as it is thought to act as a true cardiac 'tonic', aiding oxygen supply to the heart muscle itself by exerting a mild dilatory effect on the vessels supplying the heart, improving the function of the muscle.

It is now known not to have a digitalis-like effect but do check with the doctor or pharmacist of you are on any other heart medications.

Blood pressure does rise as a result of both stress and stiffening of the arteries.

In either case, I would suggest our Hawthorn-Garlic complex as garlic can slowly address any deposits and the Passiflora within the formula helps calm the central nervous system and reduce anxiety.

Please also increase your intake of oily fish, as omega 3 oils add tremendously to the anti-plaque effects of garlic and increase the magnesium in your diet.

Since you're familiar with our fibromyalgia section, you'll easily find magnesium-rich foods under the 'fibromyalgia diet' tab.

Best wishes
