Hypertension or High Blood Pressure
There are many causes of high blood pressure including genetic, environmental, changes to blood vessel structure and function, weight gain, insulin resistance, and alterations in kidney fluid-salt balances. Hypertension is one of the most commonly diagnosed medical conditions in the United States, and blood pressure medications are among the top ten most commonly prescribed drugs. Before starting medications to treat high blood pressure, it is important to address the underlying causes of hypertension. Research currently shows that diet and lifestyle changes are often just as effective or even better than medications for lowering high blood pressure. Some people may require medications even after lifestyle is improved, but often at lower doses with fewer side effects.
Lynette had a cough for thirty years, which was a side effect of a blood pressure medication. Within a couple months on our program, she was able to lower her blood pressure naturally, stop taking the medication, and eliminated her 30-year cough.
Like obesity, high blood pressure is reaching epidemic proportions among American adults. If big drug companies had their way, there would be at least as many drugs available to treat obesity as there are for hypertension. But as study after study shows, drugging with pharmaceuticals is a short-term, unreliable, and often quite dangerous approach to treating symptoms rather than the underlying causes of disease.
A natural approach to preventing disease and healing yourself when illness strikes is always the better choice. In the case of high blood pressure, lifestyle changes can put you on the road to a drug-free, all-natural return to optimal health.
Some of the main causes of hypertension include lifestyle factors that you have total control over. You simply need the proper coaching. Making the appropriate lifestyle changes can very likely lower your blood pressure permanently.
