As high blood pressure suffers, we are amongst the first generations to have handed over our health care to doctors and the pharmaceutical industry. In placing our well being in their hands, we have forgotten the natural remedies we used to use, some of which are just as effective at lowering our high blood pressure as the pharmaceutical products our doctor prescribes – but without the side effects.
Before we take umbrage at our physician when he reaches for the prescription pad, we should understand that traditionally doctors’ training leads them to focus on a “scientific” cure for our ailments. There is a problem in that the medical profession looks to pharmaceutical companies for drugs and medicines with which to treat us. Being commercial organizations, the pharmaceutical companies need a return on their investment, so it is not in their interests to promote effective natural remedies that reduce our hypertension.
When we consider how simple it is to treat our high blood pressure naturally, we soon come to realize that there is an alternative to taking drugs for the rest of our lives.
Here Are Five Practical Ways To For Us To Lower Our High Blood Pressure Naturally:
# 1. Eat vegetables. Some vitamins and minerals reduce hypertension. Fortunately for us, most vegetables contain these nutrients. For maximum benefit, we should eat vegetables raw or lightly cooked. Overcooking will destroy the very nutrients we need.
