I want to check herbs to lower my BP, especially systolic and have read about powdered hawthorn berry used to make a mix with cinnamon, raw honey and cocoa powder. I had a pacemaker installed in January and have atherosclerosis. My dr put me on Amiodarone. So far the pm and amiodarone seem to be working but I wonder why I feel hot inside if this is a side effect or my BP. The diastolic no is usually good and sonetimes my BP is perfect but I'm wondering why I feel heat inside. Sometimes my systolic is 130-140 and once recently was 170. I prefer natural herbs to drugs.
