Blood Pressure

High blood
pressure is one of the most common health concerns in America, affecting
over 50% of those over the age of 65. Because high blood pressure
usually causes no symptoms until complications develop, it is known
as the “silent killer”. High blood pressure triples your
risk of having heart attacks. It also increases your chances of
having a stroke.

From a natural
point of view, high blood pressure is the result of improper diet.
The standard American diet tends to be too high in foods that clog
the veins and arteries. Changing the diet to a more natural one
with more fruits and vegetables, more fiber, healthy oils, lower
salt, and leaner cuts of meat helps to lower blood pressure.

In addition
to dietary changes, it is usually helpful to clean the organs and
tissues responsible for eliminating metabolic waste so that the
organs that are responsible for cleaning our blood can actually
do so.

A natural approach
to lowering blood pressure includes omega 3 fatty acids which have
been shown to lower the risk of heart disease along with lowering
LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, inhibiting platelet aggregations,
and lowering blood pressure.
