24 Sep 2010 I have been able to stop taking blood pressure drugs since taking Hawthorn Berry; however, it causes sweating, some dizziness and seems to raise my heart rate.

08 Oct 2009 During the spring and summer I use tincture of fresh Hawthorn leaves and flowers. During the winter I switch to the fresh berry tincture. My blood pressure used to be 140+/98+ on a pretty regular basis with occasional peaks up to 200/120. After a couple of months taking Hawthorn tincture my usual bp is below 120/80 (typically 117/ 76) with occasional spikes up to 150/94. My heart murmur has also disappeared and I rarely notice any irregular heart beats.
