How To Get Off High Blood Pressure Medicine
Cathy reveals how to avoid taking high blood pressure medication for life by eliminating the root cause of the problem.
One out of three adults have high blood pressure. If you’re in this group, no doubt you’ve been told taking blood pressure medication is for life, otherwise you risk having a stroke or heart attack.
Taking blood pressure medications doesn’t have to be for life. It is possible to get off blood pressure medications. IF you treat the underlying cause of your high blood pressure.
Elevated blood pressure is a sign that you are developing hardening of the arteries. Your blood vessels are becoming stiff and less pliable. High blood pressure is a clue that you are deficient in certain nutrients and/or hormones.
Remember, the main premise of integrative medicine is to correct deficiencies and remove barriers that are keeping the body from staying well. The deficiency of nitric oxide is one of the main causes of high blood pressure.
More Nitric Oxide
We have known about nitric oxide now for nearly 20 years. The Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded for the discovery of nitric oxide in 1998. But, very few healthcare providers understand how to increase nitric oxide in the body. Why? Nitric oxide is a gas produced by the body. This makes it hard for pharmaceutical companies to make a drug in pill form. The two best ways to increase nitric oxide is ingesting certain foods, primarily kale and leafy green vegetables, along with the right level of moderate exercise. There also are very good food based supplements available now to boost nitric oxide levels.
Magnesium deficiency is another common cause of high blood pressure. In fact, pregnant women who present to the emergency room with high blood pressure are treated with IV magnesium, not harmful drugs.
