I was curious if anybody has any experience with hawthorn berries in relation to high blood pressure in women? My wife recently had a C-section a month ago and ended up with some toxemia - her blood pressure which had been normal during the pregnancy has suddenly increased. Lately it has hovered around 138/88 and she is on a blood pressure drug called labetalol. We are considering a natural alternative. Her doctor has been lowering her Blood pressure drug in an attempt to wean her off of it, but her pressure is still up. Just curious what anybody's thoughts were on a good alternative med.
