Lower High Blood Pressure Naturally
High Blood Pressure By Dr. James Merchino, DC, MS, ND High blood pressure and high cholesterol are
cardinal risk factors for having a heart attack, stroke or advanced kidney disease – things
you definitely want to avoid. Of course the medical management of these diseases involves
drugs that lower blood pressure such as diuretics, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, ACE
inhibitors, angiotensin receptor blockers, renin inhibitors; a series of hypertensive
drugs. The truth is that each class of blood pressure lowering drugs has some significant
side effects that can actually be induced by taking them for long periods of time.
Pharmacology textbooks have actually instructed doctors to place the patient on to a prudent
diet and lifestyle program first and then if the person doesn’t respond, then introduce
the drugs. This happens especially in cases of uncomplicated high blood pressure, where
the person isn’t a diabetic, they have haven’t already had a heart attack or they don’t
already have kidney disease – it’s just high blood pressure and that’s the only
thing going wrong. The problem is that in medical school, doctors
don’t receive a lot of nutritional training on supplements and dietary regimes, so it’s
easy for them to just write a prescription and everyone gets on with their lives.
On the other hand, there are pseudo-crazy, wacko-pseudo experts who claim to know what
they’re doing in the area of nutrition and will give you advice on lowering blood pressure,
and some of the things they tell you to do are actually dangerous or they definitely
don’t work. The truth is, there are only a handful of lifestyle strategies that have
ever been proven through human clinical studies to actually lower blood pressure naturally.
So this is where I come in. I suggest strongly that you download my Natural Management of
High Blood Pressure program right now and put all the strategies to work for you. And
your doctor may be able to decrease the dosage of medications that you are using now, or
even totally eliminate them altogether because the program has worked so well.
