High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)

The cardiovascular system is designed to move blood through arteries, veins and capillaries at certain pressure levels to maintain a healthy heart. http://dherbs.com/uploads/news/id4669/pressure1.jpg

The cardiovascular system is a finely tuned machine. It is designed to move blood through arteries, veins and capillaries at certain pressure levels to maintain a healthy heart and other vital organs.

When the pressure is too high, it places an extra burden on the heart and other life systems. The condition can be deadly if left untreated.

High blood pressure is any pressure reading in excess of 140/90. Pre-hypertension is measured at anything over 120/80.


Causes and Risk Factors

Risk factors for high blood pressure include but is not limited to:

  • Stress
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Obesity
  • Pharmaceutical drug use
  • High sodium consumption
  • Oral contraceptive use
  • Stimulants
  • Excessive meat and dairy consumption.

Symptoms

Some of the reported symptoms associated with high blood pressure are:

  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Blurred vision
  • Heart attack or heart failure
  • Stroke or TIA
  • Kidney failure
  • Peripheral artery disease
  • Chest pain
  • Nausea or vomiting

Natural Healing Solutions

If you smoke or use tobacco products, stop.

Start to move! EXERCISE or stretch! Get into yoga, tai chi, qi chong, pilates, walk a few miles, perform deep breathing.

Get periodic colonics! Perform enemas (weekly or bi-weekly). Perform frequent foot ionization detoxification baths.

Get deep tissue, myofascial, and lymphatic drainage massages performed monthly.

Visit a chiropractic regularly for maintenance purposes.

Have acupressure performed periodically.

Get your chakras balanced as often as you can!

Have your aura photographed 2-4 times per year.

Herbs
Individual herbs that can help in the healing of high blood pressure include:

  • Cayenne
  • Butcher's Broom
  • Cinnamon
  • Glucomannan
  • Hawthorn Berries
  • Motherwort, and
  • European Mistletoe.

As far as the herbs Licorice Root and Yohimbe bark go pertaining to high blood pressure, use them with caution. The problem is not these herbs, but what's already in the body (i.e. man-made stimulants) of certain people that causes the problem.

Now certain people may not want to take these herbs (individually) because of their condition and/or state of their body; but if Licorice or Yohimbe are among many ingredients in a formula or product, there's nothing to worry about as herbs balance one another out.


Dietary Intervention

When it comes to foods, there are not a lot of healthy white-colored things one can eat. As many in the health consciousness movement admonish: avoid eating white foods! Chances are, if it's white, it's refined and devoid of nutrition. White foods or more correctly, foodstuffs, include white eggs, white flour (white bread), white rice, white sugar, white salt, milk, and lard.

Man-made sodium (white table salt) is a great contributor to high blood pressure. Stop eating processed foods and fast foods. If you didn't make it from scratch, don't eat it. Otherwise, there's likely high sodium content, which only aggravates high blood pressure.

If you MUST use salt, season food with sea salt, and then only use half of what the recipe calls for. Herbal seasonings are great alternatives to salt-based ones.

White flour has limited nutritional value. Whole wheat or multi grain breads (i.e. Ezekiel bread, Alvarado Bakery brands) are better to eat.

White rice is altered brown rice. Any nutritional value has been removed in the processing. Brown rice and/or wild (black) rice are better to eat than white rice. White sugar (sucrose) has no nutritional value, and can be harmful. Better alternatives to white table sugar include maple syrup (or maple sugar), date sugar, fructose, agave nectar, vegetable glycerin, and stevia (herb).

Eliminate refined grains from the diet. Eat only whole-wheat grains.

Reduce consumption of refined starches. Bake your starches instead of frying them.

Cut out or greatly cut back on drinking acidic beverages (i.e. soda pop, beer, wine, coffee, lattes, milk, etc.). Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water daily (to help flush the body).

Eat more vegetables (preferably organic) - raw or steamed is best! Drink vegetable juice periodic (helps to wash away arterial plaque).

Eat more raw, whole fruits (preferably organic) and drink fruit juice (especially blueberry juice).

Avoid cooking with unhealthy oils such as lard, vegetable oil, corn oil, soy oil, canola oil, and kernal oil. Better oils to cook with include olive oil, grape seed oil, safflower oil, and sunflower seed oil, but only for low temperature cooking, like sauteing.

As far as alcohol consumption, cut out or cut back this habit or action.

    A:

    Perhaps because you are more RELAXED at night due to bedtime, and in the morning, the subconscious thought of the anticipated stress makes your bloop pressure rise. It could be psycho-somatic in nature where your body is responding to your psyche or subconscious thoughts. Read our article â€HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE (HYPERTENSION)†located under "Articles."

    Q: I am a woman who happens to be diabetic and now I am pregnant. I would like to know what foods I should eat and restrain from while I am still pregnant. I am also taking insulin to keep my blood sugar levels low enough as not to harm my baby. They are telling me I need to eat dairy and meat to meet the dietary requirements for a healthy baby. Please help me. As I know you know better.

    A:

    Congratulations on your pregnancy. New life is such a wonderful thing!

    I recommend that you drink our Pancreas tea (1-2 cups a day).

    Eat plenty of cinnamon, ginger, and cayenne pepper. Abstain from dairy products and meat products. These are no good for African people. If anything, eat meat-less (vegan) alternatives -- you can find plenty in our Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual ($11).

    Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. You can eat steamed vegetables and brown and/or wild rice (with vegan chicken if you like). Just switch meat for vegan products and switch to non-dairy products or dairy alternatives (which can be found in the Alternative Diet and Lifestyle manual).

    For great nutrition for your baby, I recommend the following Dherbs formulas: PRE-NATAL FORMULA, VITAMIN C FORMULA, ELECTRIC GREENS CELL FOOD, and Iodine Phosphate.

    For natural sugar, try Stevia, Agave Nectar, and/or maple syrup.

    I have 3 beautiful, healthy, and precocious vegan babies. A vegan diet coupled with proper nutrition makes for a healthy mother and child -- GUARANTEED!

    Q: I would like to know (1) Why you would not recommend soy? (2) What are some good recipes that you could recommend that are simple to fix? (3) What breads are good to eat? (4) What salad dressings are good and do you make your own? and if you make your own, I would like to get that information. (5) Also what is the 411 on wheat gluten? I'm thankful for all information and time.

    A:

    1. Soy

    Soy along with corn is the number one genetically-engineered crop on the planet. Soy is not digested in the body and this is why we shouldn't eat a lot of soy products or shouldn't eat it at all. Soy is an industrial product. I would only recommend soy as a meat-alternative.

    2. Recipes

    Beloved, I recommend that you purchase the Full Body Detox Companion ($40) which includes numerous vegan and raw foods recipes. But here are a few freebies:

    Famous Muslim Bean Soup (Small white/navy beans, celery, carrots, broccoli, garlic, onion, paprika, sea salt, maple syrup [optional]) Directions:

    1. Bring water in pot to a boil;

    2. Add beans, 2-3 tablespoons of sea salt, diced or chopped onions and garlic and let boil for about 45 minutes or until beans or soft/mashable;

    3. Add paprika, 2-3 tablespoons of maple syrup, and diced or chopped carrots, celery and broccoli sprouts and let cook/boil for ten minutes;

    4. Let cool down to room temperature;

    5. Finished ? eat and enjoy! Great with some type of grain muffin.

    Veggie Deli Sandwiches (Use TVP, soy, hemp, or seitan alternative "meat" slices available at good health food stores). You can add/use: Cheese (rice, almond, hemp, nut, or soy cheese ? remember: some of these cheeses contain "casein" which is a dairy product); Nayonnaise or Veganaise as a sandwich spread; Non-vinegar Mustard (i.e. Whole Food?s "Whole Kids" brand ); organic green or Romaine lettuce; organic tomatoes; Kosher dill pickles (I personally prefer Trader Joe?s brand of sour dill pickles as they are made without vinegar and taste great); grilled onions (optional). I also sprinkle a little Trocomore brand Herbal Seasoning (or sea salt) on my sandwich. I prefer my sandwich on sprouted wheat bread, rye bread, Kamut Egyptian wheat bread, spelt, or mixed grain bread (Alvarado Market brand). This sandwich goes good with Barbara?s brand potato chips (ruffled style).

    Falafel Burger (to make a falafel burger patty: add chopped onions, black olives, and/or grated carrots and rice/almond/soy cheese; and mushrooms to your falafel mix; pour a little extra virgin olive oil on the pan or tray and let the falafel patty bake until ready).

    ADD THE WORKS TO YOUR BURGER! i.e. lettuce (Romaine, Green), tomatoes, pickles, Nayonnaise or Vegnaise spread; mustard (Whole Kids brand); cheese (rice, soy, hemp, almond, etc.); raw or grilled onions; vegetarian chili; veggie bacon, etc. Sprinkle a little sea salt or herbal seasoning. Be imaginative and inventive! Satisfy your palate!

    To add french fries to go with your burger: Wash and peel (unless you prefer to eat the potato skin) 1-2 organic Russet potatoes. Cut potato into halves and then into long strips. Put long strips (fries) into glassware or a pan or tray (nonaluminum), douse fries/potatoes with extra virgin olive oil (making sure oil gets all over potatoes). Bake in the oven on 350 or 400 degrees for about 45 minutes or until golden brown on the outside of potatoes. Make sure to turn the potatoes from time to time to prevent sticking. When ready, let fries/potatoes cool down. Add fruit-based ketchup and sprinkle a little sea salt on your fries ? and you?re ready to go!

    3. Breads

    Good breads to eat include: BUCKWHEAT, KAMUT WHEAT, AMARANTH, TEFF, RYE and MULTI-GRAIN.

    4. Salda Dressing

    Make a big green leafy salad with Romaine lettuce and/or Green lettuce (avoid iceberg lettuce), tomatoes, radish, carrots, cucumbers and any other vegetable you like. Be inventive and sprinkle poppy seeds, gomacio (sesame seeds and sea salt), herbal seasoning and/or other spices on your salad. For a dressing, try using extra virgin olive oil, sesame oil, apple cider or plum vinegar, lemon or lime juice (or combine them all). Remember , be inventive! You know what you like!

    5. Wheat gluten

    Wheat gluten is better than soy and i'd recommend it over soy any time. The problem with wheat gluten is that many Black people have a gluten intolerance which results in disease (Celiac's disease), so Blacks should be wary about this product, esp. if it causes health problems.

    Q: I'm doing the Full Body Detox and I have a few questions about it: I get tired of drinking just the distilled water and I'd like to drink the herbal teas, but I don't like it by itself. Would it mess things up to add a pack or two of Splenda to my tea or maybe honey? I can't stand the salads with the olive oil or apple cider vinegar or the lemon juice as dressing and it makes me gag. I have To have some sort of salad dressing. What kind would be suitable? Do I look for sugar-free? Or organic and natural? I found one that is organic and natural, but it has 3 grams of sugar in it. Without eating all my whole grained breads and other fiber, I haven't had much of a bowel movement in 3 days, should I wait a while yet? (I had surgery on my bowels and always had to take fiber tablets and eat lots of grains to get my bowels to move.) I haven't done the enemas yet, (low on money) should I try that? Or should I resume my fiber tablets I normally take? Any type of fiber I could add to my fruit smoothies in the morning? I want to also do the female cleanse. Is it ok to do that immediately after I finish the full body cleanse or should I wait for a little while? Thank you for all your help, I feel much better than I did before and I just started this detox a week ago, lost 10 pounds, too, woohoooooo! Thank you

    A:

    1. Splenda is a POISON and your are detoxing your body from poison. Herbal teas are fine during the FBD, but f you want sweetness, try maple syrup, stevia herb, honey, or agave nectar. These are NATURAL sweeteners.

    2. In re Salad Dressing, as long as it's not a commercial junk brand, GO FOR IT!!!! Get the best salad dressing possible.

    3. The fiber pills are not part of the FBD so I wouldn't advise those. I'd simply advise you to drink prune juice or to start eating prunes. Fruit is you best choice of fiber so look into eating more papaya, mango, figs, etc. And yes, colonics (and enemas) would greatly help you - undoubtedly!

    4. You can do the Total Woman Cleanse right after you finish detoxing. There's no need to wait!
