Hypertension: Find the Cause First

By Friday, 30 June 2017 01:58 PM Current | Bio | Archive

Hypertension, which occurs when the blood pressure in your arteries is too high, can lead to blood vessel diseases such as strokes, heart attacks, and leg pain caused during walking.

As it does not cause any symptoms until the damage is already done, it is important to occasionally have your blood pressure checked.

In my experience, the best approach is to use medications to initially bring your blood pressure under control.

Once it is normalized, natural therapies can often keep your blood pressure at a healthy level and allow you to wean off the medications.

Unfortunately, most doctors never really find or even look for the underlying cause of the elevated blood pressure.

Given that they have an average of less than seven minutes per doctor visit, and that pharmaceutical companies making blood-pressure products spend a fortune teaching doctors about medications and almost nothing teaching about natural treatments, it is no surprise that most doctors simply give medication.

Unlike cholesterol medicines, which may be more harmful than helpful for most people, blood pressure medications actually do save a lot of lives.

After three months, you'll often find that you can taper off your blood pressure medications and still maintain a healthy pressure.
