High blood pressure is a common disease in people all over the world. Medication is not the only way to treat this silent killer.
In recent studies, one out of every three American adults has high blood pressure, but only about half of them are being treated and among the half treated only few are treated successfully.
Uncontrolled high blood pressure can increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, dementia, heart failure and kidney failure. Even though regular exercise and a low-fat and low-sodium diet can help reduce blood pressure in many cases, many doctors end up treating high blood pressure with medication. In most cases, medication is necessary just for initial treatment before treating the root cause. (As seen in the video above).
Most blood pressure medications has notorious side effects, like headaches, dizziness, light-headedness, drowsiness and many more.
Studies shows that the following are the common major causes of high blood pressure: says Dr. Jonathan V. Wright, M.D
1. Magnesium Deficiency
2. Vitamin D Deficiency
3. Insulin Resistance
4. Excess lead and mercury in the blood stream
Do not stop or reduce your medication dosage without consulting your doctor.
