After 5 years of taking tenoretic (atenolol and chlorthalidone) for high blood pressure, is there an alternative natural remedy?

In brief: Low Salt Diet
The best natural remedy for blood pressure control is getting to your ideal body weight and mainting a low salt diet (less than 2 grams daily).
If these methods fails, then their are other pharmacological medications that have been tested safely to help with hbp.

In brief: No, but.....
There isn't a good alternative "natural" remedy, but there are many great alternatives to tenoretic (atenolol and chlorthalidone).
Tenoretic (atenolol and chlorthalidone) contains chlorthalidone, which is a good BP med for most people. Tenoretic (atenolol and chlorthalidone) also contains atenolol which is a terrible BP med. It has numerous side effects including wt gain, depression, shortness of breath, increase blood sugar, ed and more. See your doctor for an rx alternative now.
