High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)

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

New Study Shows Organic is Better Than Conventional

Is organically grown food really worth the price tag? A new study says "yes."

In a new study out of the United Kingdom, organic foods are shown to have more antioxidants, fewer toxic metals, and less pesticide residue than their conventional counterparts. Published in the British Journal of Nutrition—and said to be the largest study of its kind ever conducted—researchers at Newcastle University found that organic crops had 18 to 69 percent more antioxidants than conventional crops, the equivalent found in two additional servings of fruit or vegetables.

Essential Oils - a Better Way To Preserve Food?

If you worry about all the synthetic chemicals used in food preservation and packaging take heart.

A new study has found that essential oils may be able to be used as food preservatives in packaging to help extend the shelf-life of food products.

Essential oils are aromatic oily liquids extracted from different parts of plants (roots, peels, leaves, seeds, fruits, barks) and have been shown to be a good source of antioxidative and antimicrobial substances.
