A comprehensive look into natural ways to lower blood pressure
If you have been recently diagnosed with or already have high blood pressure, or know someone who has, you have landed in the right place. We spent years and gathered and tested information and methods on lowering blood pressure without pharmaceutical medication, (naturally), and with no side effects. As a result
of 101 Ways To Lower, Your Blood Pressure Naturally is a complete reference to lowering blood pressure to date. Although we have not changed the name of the book as of 3-3-16 we are up to 138 ways to lower your blood pressure.
Some of these natural remedies go back a long time have been known for centuries, and are as old as the Asian culture itself. Which up until recently western medicine has ignored, but are now starting to admit that these remedies have merit. Others methods are more and recent discoveries brought about through science and a greater understanding of mother nature and the role we were meant to play in her plan. Still, others combine techniques from old cultures with newer sciences and methods.
Arming yourself with knowledge by joining those of us who are in the know is the simplest and yet the most powerful single thing you can do to not only understand your high blood pressure but get it down to optimal levels.
Let’s look at some quotes from an article written by DR Joseph Mercola.
“According to medical physiology textbooks, 95 percent of the causes of hypertension is idiopathic, meaning the underlying cause is unknown.
This is simply not true. Hypertension is typically a symptom of insulin and leptin resistance. And the vast majority of those who have hypertension can normalise their blood pressure without resorting to drugs.”
“Hypertension is also categorised as either primary or secondary hypertension. The former applies to about 90-95 percent of those with high blood pressure, and while the conventional medical establishment claims the cause is idiopathic or unknown, primary hypertension (aka essential hypertension) is more than likely linked to insulin/leptin resistance.
Secondary hypertension applies to the remaining five to 10 percent whose high blood pressure is caused by a chronic liver disease. The revised blood pressure guidelines issued late last year emphasise when and how doctors should treat high blood pressure.
Prehypertensive patients should not be treated with blood pressure lowering drugs; rather, they should be encouraged to gain the knowledge and make changes to address their condition.”
High Blood Pressure Medications Have risks.
I will give you a few examples.
The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institution has reported that one of the most frequently used blood pressure drugs seriously increases the risk of cancer.
Researchers at the University of Denmark reported that about 15% of cholesterol-lowering drug users over the age of 50 will suffer from nerve damage as a direct result of using those medications. And USA Today reported recently that statins have killed and injured more people than the government has acknowledged.
According to a recent study conducted by the Wake Forest University School of Medicine, calcium channel blockers are estimated to cause 85,000 unnecessary deaths every year. Not just from thousands of strokes and heart attacks.
The deaths are also due to gastrointestinal bleeding, and kidney and liver damage. Plus, weaker immune systems lead to all kinds of other diseases.
Some put you at higher risk for cancer. Some put women at increased risk for breast cancer. Others cause kidney, liver and immune system problems.
If you are just masking the symptom then an improper function of key body systems can continue to cause problems. Blood pressure medication treats the symptom, but shouldn’t you be treating the cause? Don’t get me wrong I am not anti-doctor or anti-western medicine.
I just think you should try to bring the body back into balance before taking medication. The bottom line is the least amount of these drugs you can take the better your health will be.
