I agree completely because the low sodium/salt DASH diet has had this same effect on me. However, I do not believe the low sodium diet alone would not have brought my blood pressure down to normal. It was not enough. It was not until I finished losing 90 pounds with DASH diet that my blood pressure completely receded. Before I started with DASH, 9 years ago, I had a regular blood pressure reading of about 170/90. Yesterday’s blood pressure reading at the pharmacy was 109/49 and I have never used BP drugs to bring my blood pressure down. It was the DASH diet, weight loss and exercise, that fixed this problem for me so many years ago.
