I am looking forward to using this herb with or without the crap I am on now it was ok in the case of an emergency when I had a stroke in October but after 6 months of being on Labetolol, Enalapril, Verapamil and Hydrochlorothiazide I can't have a decent night's sleep my bones ache, I lost half of my tooth I have no will to live and no strenghth. I am always urinating getting all my clothes dirty even my skin looks terrible plus I am gaining wieght! No way am I going to continue taking these prescriptions.
I had the same problem wit lisnoapril before i left the hospital. They had me on 14 med's now I'm down to 6 meds. .When I got home I started doing my own research on all of the meds my doctor gave me. Lisnoapril what was making me sick all the time I stopped taking it all together. Then I started looking at natural herbs. to replace what i stopped taking. I found that hawthorn berries was the answer. that was 5 years ago. now I take more herbs.Thank You God for leading me to the Truth about natural Herbs.
I made up a list of all my med's and herbs on the computer. so when i have to go to the doctors office he gets a copy of what I'm taking.a few years ago i was on medicare in Michigan they sent me to midwest health clinic.
the doctor looked at the list of med's and herbs for a minute.looked me in the eye and said why are you waisting your time and money buying this CRAP.That was it I got up and walked out of his office and I have not been back since.
Doctor only believe in what the AMA say's they have no time to do their own research. They care more about what goes into their pockets than anything else $$$$$.$$$. Apparently he is full of Crap.
I feel great,I do have Congestive Heart failure. high blood pressure and am a diabetic.[email protected]
Hello, Today I was made aware of this herb.Thanks to my Daughter.I do herbs big time for years,I am a 19yr. challenged Fibro person..
This question is for D Nelson.I checked to purchase this herb,however I did not find the flowers and leaves..
How are they purchased?,and where,and how would you intake the flower and leaves?
You are 100% wrong. To get full benefit one must get the "Berry" form which contains the whole herb. And dosage should be between 15 -20mg's per kilogram of body weight. Much higher than 300mg's a day. Wait 6-8 weeks to see full benefit.
Hi Fred, if you are diabetic, you can consider looking at loquat leaf. read & learn more about it. hope you will benefit from it.
Interested in the nettle as I have this problem during the day as I have had prostate cancer for about 12 years. I also take Hawthorn for my heart. They wanted to take me in the same day I had my test to insert a stent. That was 18 months ago & I avoided the stent & the load of drugs prescribed & have got back to a 3 1/4 mile bike ride without any problems. I should say I'm 83!
I have been using wild hawthorn berries for trreatment of stroke for the past 2 years. Since beginning I have had no further symptoms or problems of any sort. Blood pressure is as low as 111 over 74 which for a person of my age  is considered to be well above excellant. I am athlectic and run 5km almost every day.I'll eat hawthorns till I die because of overall health improvewment. B. Page.
Hi, this is 70 yo w/f - been taking Hawthorn Berries Extract 141 mg. std. to 1.8% Vitexin with additional 424 mg. Hawthorn included in the same capsule for about 12 years. Began taking this after congestive heart failure secondary to viral myocarditis @ that same time. This all followed an ablation of SVT. As of today, my BP is completely normal, as is my heart function (perfect output) Never have taken subsequent BP meds or any sort of cardiac meds. Very thankful God for this. Hope this info. is helpful to someone. Thank you.
I've noticed several posts by folks who are going cold turkey off of their medications for high blood pressure. PLEASE, especially those of you who are on Beta Blockers, DON'T just stop cold turkey. I know you want this crap out of your system, but you have to stop these meds slowly or you can have potentially dangerous, even life threatening issues come up. You can start taking the Hawthorn now, take it for a couple of weeks and then start reducing your dose of the pharmaceutical. You should always do this with your physician's help if possible, but PLEASE don't just stop cold turkey!
On what basis do you warn about hawthorn/beta blocker interaction. As yet I can find no contrindications, but am not about to attempt both until I do.
My eye doctor told me that the High blood pressure causes issues with the blood vessels in the eyes. I had been prescribed Lisinopril, but it made me cough. My doctor switched me to Diovan which then made me retain water even with the HCT (water pill) and my joints ached. So I quit taking it (and it was expensive) The Eye doctor told me to take Fish oil capsules twice a day. It helps everything from your head to your toes (including the eyes) He also told me that it is important to take the BP meds in the morning b/c lower BP during the day was good, but the eye vessels need the higher pressure at night. About a month ago, I switced to the Hawthorn Berries and feel so much better as far as my Blood Pressure and other circulation issues. I did see a report about Green Coffee Bean Extract that is supposed to be better for Blood Pressure issues, but have not tried it yet. Oh, 1 tsp of Apple Cider vinegar a day is good for Cholesterol levels--and many other things. Mix it in OJ or hold your nose and drink in a small glass of water.
how much hawthorn berry and garlic do you take a day to regular and bring the blood pressure and cholesterol
Hey Kehl, did u eat hawthorn and garlic raw? Please advise whether raw is better or supplement
Is it OK to take Hawthorn Berry while taking medication for heart condition and high blood pressure?
Use Babelfish.com to translate any web page or word.
It says right on the lisinopril information not to take with hawthorn
I'm on lisonopril but want t try Hawthorne berry is it safe
I am glad that you decided to reduce the dosage. Please let me know if taking it every other day worked for you.
You may want to add some Ubiquinol to your regimen. It helps bring the energy to every cell in your body. Be sure to get the Ubiquinol NOT the Ubiquinone, which your body has a hard time breaking down.
Wish it was clear whether you continued to take the metoprolol with the hawthorn.
I believe the potential issue with taking Hawthorn Berries with meds such as beta blockers is just that both lower blood pressure, so you may be on too high a dose of beta blockers if you're also taking Hawthorn Berries so your blood pressure could end up too low.
Oh, Hawthorn Berry can really lower blood pressure and help during the shortness of breath! Amazing.
I just bought some hawthorn berry syrup. I was just diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse. Is is save to take this? If so, will it help? Thanks.

Have been taking Hawthorn Berry for over 8 months now to treat a leaky valve. Since taking 565mg twice a day, I have no more symtoms of this malady. I will continue using because it works with no noticable side effects.

Can I take Hawthorn if I am taking Fenofibrate?
For over 40 years, I have suffered with severe water retention in my lower legs and feet. I had had numerous ultrasounds done to see if there was blockage, and there was none. My veins in my legs were just not working. I had pitting edema everyday after 4 hours of rising. Well, by chance I stared taking some Hawthorne Berry pills, and within 3 weeks--the edema is gone. The "bulges" of water in my legs have gone. I am morbidly obese, but am now able to move and walk more without the breathlessness that I used to have. So happy to have discovered Hawthorne.
What doses are you taking and are they the regular Hawthorn Berrie capsules that you can purchase at any health food store?
I have had the same problem for 20 yrs.What brand and how much do you take?
That is great!! How are you doing now?
Has anyone heard of multi-vitamins causing blood pressure to spike? I had to quit taking mine because my bp shoots up drastically after taking them...
I have a prolapsed heart valve, and because of this suffer from arrhythmia. I take hawthorn as tea. I pick it from the hedgerows and keep it frozen in a container. I use leaves and berries both ripe and unripe. When I use it I have no heart arrhythmia symptoms. And it also makes me feel more relaxed. I think that's because when you have arrhythmia you often feel as if you are in a state of flight or fright.
I also make fruit leather with the berries. I make it into little flat squares and keep it in an air tight container and then have one inch square a day, which has the same effect as the tea.
I just had a stint put in and I'm taking Effient and Asprin to thin the blood. I know I have to be on this for a month or two, but it gives me a ferrosous headache. They wanted me to switch blood pressure medication but I didn't fill the prescript. I take Aldactazide 25/25 once a day and I will stay on that. Been on it for 20 yrs.. Not sure if I can still buy it off the internet or The pressure wasn't bad but it's better now. I want to take the Hawthorn but I'm not sure if I can with this Effient. It's Nov. 3, 2012 if anyone knows, I'll check back and see. Great info and thanks!
Can I take this while I'm on Effient and asprin? I just had a stint put in my heart. Does anyone know????? Thanks
I'm 44 yrs. old and have 90% blockage in the caroted artery. Will hawthorn berry help to clear this blockage?

Is it safe for dialysis patients to take Hawthorn berry or the extract?
I started having heart palps after a virus last year. Needless to say, they were very concerning to me as i've always been a healthy woman. A friend told me about Hawthorn berry so i gave it a try. Within a week the palpitations began getting weaker and less often and i believe within two weeks they were gone completely. First time i've really seen an herb or vitamin work so fast and so thoroughly....
Is it OK to take hawthorn berry and agnus castus?
When is the best time of day to take Hawthorne?
About 2 days after the dr had told me that my tryglicerides were so high that I had the same chance of having a heart attack as someone who had aready had one, I was still half-asleep early in the morning and had this random thought that I should take Hawthorn berry. When I got to work, I checked it out and read that it was good for heart problems. And I do feel better now and my tryglicerides are down. Crazy way to hear about it, but I am glad.
i think if it is the pure nature hawthron extract ,it do not have any side effects if u take it with another medcine,that is totally ok.
i have 2 yesra experience in nature plant extract.
need any help,contact me [email protected]

I am very interested in advice and suggestions from y'all, especially D. Nelson, as you seem to "know your stuff." Let me share my background with this quick: I am 54 years old. Over the last several years I have been diagnosed with a-fib. Not severe for the most part; in fact, other than "heart farts" as I call them, (sorry, LOL, it's the little temporary skipping that occurs) I have only gone into full-blown a-fib 5 times in the last 7 years. Three times I was cardioverted and sent home, no biggie. My cardiologist put me on Fleccanide and coreg for about 18 months or so, and 4 baby aspirin a day. Then after I quit smoking my BP dropped so low, he had me stop all meds immediately except for the baby aspirin. I still had the occasional little heart farts, and then about a week ago, after eating a sausage that I knew dang well not to eat, I went back into full-blown a-fib. Stupidly I had also started smoking again (and am stopping again-please God for good this time!) He had me take my meds again and 24 hours later my heart went back into rhythm on its own. I saw him the next day and he put me on this hideous new blood thinner called Xarelto instead of the aspirin. It makes me so dizzy and light-headed and queasy that I am uneasy even about driving. I have a call into him today to discuss it. But I hate being on these meds and started doing research for healthy alternatives; that's how I found this site. Any and all suggestions, advice, etc will be welcomed. I grew up in California where we have lots of homeopaths, not so here in Georgia; most people I have asked don't even know what it is! So can you help?? God bless y'all and thanks!
There are two things which may help = the first is a good fish oil and the second is nattokinase. I drink a special water (Japanese Medical Device) which also thins the blood.

I saw that somebody talked about having pitted edema in their legs. I have had it for the past 15 or so years. I was obese and had gastric sleeve surgery and have lost 70 pounds, but I still have the edema. It's not as bad, but my legs still look ugly and puffy. I am thinking about starting Hawthorn Berry supplement. Will this help with the edema in my legs. Nobody has been able to tell me why I have at these years!
