We were all very much hopeful on not losing him (my dad). But we gradually began to lose faith on his chances of survival since almost everything we tried to bring down his blood pressure had failed but thank God we finally saw the light after the end of a very long tunnel. A simple aloe vera based therapy restored our faith and made my dad a happy man once again.

It took us all by surprise when it all started, daddy would complain of headache almost all the time and seemed to get fatigued quicker than he used to. We were all used to seeing dad wake up very early and whisk out of the house on week days. He was a bank manager so his work seemed more demanding. When all these started he became less efficient and was forced to resign earlier than expected.

It got to a stage when dad could not see clearly.

He couldn’t help to notice this since he was a lover of newspapers. He was at the hospital for checkups and to possibly request for a lens which would aid his vision. It was even more shocking when he got to know that his blood pressure was on the high side.

I think this revelation worsened everything, caused a tensed atmosphere and brought up varied symptoms on a daily basis. On December 11, 20017 we got a big scare. My dad’s eyes were wide open, he was sweating profusely and complaining of something pounding in his chest ears and neck region. I had never seen anything like that in my life, I was so scared we might lose him. We couldn’t even rush him to the hospital because of possible delay. Mommy called our family doctors in tears and he came around in a matter of minutes after the call. The doctor measured his BP using sphygmomanometer and it read 170/100.

We were lucky to have dad back again with the help of the doctor perhaps with a limited life line. We were sure to start monitoring his diets. The doctor had warned against the risk of too much intake of salt, red meat, alcohol and fatty foods.

Daddy abstained from all these and mom made sure of that but this feeling of nervousness never stopped in dad. We decided to try out other possible means of helping dad overcome this even though the doctor said we could only help manage this condition. We did not mind whether it was traditional or otherwise, mom just wanted dad back. I saw an article online which was a testimonial of a survivor of a similar case to that of my dad, I did not totally fall for it but I told mom anyway. She opted for it at once but did not tell dad about this innovation since we were not certain about its potency.

We skeptically visited the link (wellnesshome.com.ng/hbp/) put a call through for the herbal supplements and were overwhelmed with the result we achieved. The doctor asked in disbelief what we had used on dad but mom concealed the truth since she feared any possible criticism from the doctor might not go well with her.
