  • Anyone with low blood pressure / hypotension?

    I have low blood pressure - on average I'm around 86/60 but I've been as low as 80/52 (and actually got denied donating blood that day!).

    My doctor said not to be concerned unless I faint easily, which I don't, because low blood pressure is very good for your heart. However, I do get dizzy much more often than the average person, and I've been that way my whole life.

    Aside from increasing sodium intake, what can I do in my Primal lifestyle to reduce dizziness?
