I'm suffering from hypotension and would like to know what can I use to boost my low blood pressure. ? I was using Akrinor before & now rely on more water & salt but they don't help that much.
Salt only raises BP significantly in a minority of people!
Licorice root often raises BP. Hawthorne berries can raise it for those with low BP.
Hypotension can be caused by low adrenal function so adrenal support herbs like ashwagandha and rhodiola may help. For other ideas see http://healthy-ojas.com/lowbp/hypotension-natural-herbal.html ...Read more

It's a relative term: Hypotension is blood pressure that is below the pressure normally expected for an individual in a given situation. It is a relative term because "normal" blood pressure varies with activity, age, meds, and underlying medical conditions. That means if a person is usually 130/80, gets dehydrated and drops to 90/60 and gets dizzy, he has hypotension; but a runner who lives at 90/60 is normal there. ...Read more
For what reasons would someone's blood pressure continuously fluctuate between hypertension and hypotension?
Labile bp: Wide fluctuations of bp may be related to fluctuations in heart rate. They an occur with anxiety, exposure to cold, presence of tumors which secrete epinephrine a or norepinephrine(pheochromocytoma) or in people with autonomic dysfunction where the reflexes to sense and regulate bp are poor.

It may even be more pronounced in the young thin very healthy person and then if the ambient temperature is high then even more pronounced. Stop testing. ...Read more
