The traditional medical system has no solution for high blood pressure other than dangerous drugs, sometimes carrying lethal side effects.
But researchers from the University of Houston’s College of Pharmacy recently discovered a simple, natural cure for high blood pressure. It’s more effective than drugs and it comes with no side effects.
You already have the cure in your kitchen, and you’re consuming it on a daily basis. You may just need to boost it up a little and watch your blood pressure numbers drop.
The kidneys play a key role in managing blood pressure. Depending on orders from the brain, they excrete more sodium to lower blood pressure or excrete less sodium when blood pressure needs to be raised. But for some reason, the kidneys do not always manage to do their job.
One of the most common classes of blood pressure drug, diuretics (also called a water pill), is supposed to help the kidneys get rid of excess water and sodium. But they come with serious side effects.
However, what the researchers discovered was that when oxidized stress (free radicals that cause inflammation) is present in the kidneys, dopamine receptors that are supposed to monitor sodium excretion didn’t work the right way.
By loading your body with antioxidants, which fight free radicals, the oxidized stress lessens, and your kidneys can do their job again.
The good news is that this is easy to do using delicious fruits and vegetables, without the side effects of the water pill.
Blueberries have more varieties of antioxidants than any other fruit. But antioxidants can be found in all fruits and vegetables. The general rule is the more color, the better. You can also take them as supplements.
It’s equally important to avoid oxidization in the first place by eating healthy foods and avoid everything processed. Food cooked at very high temperatures (grilled) and of course fried foods also contribute to oxidization.
The real underlying cause, however, lies in the phrase, “oxidized stress.” Because any stress can be the underlying cause of high blood pressure. It can be physical (oxidization, diseases), mental (long lasting difficult tasks at work), emotional (loss of a loved one), or sensory (traffic, loud TV).
And the stress accumulates. Imagine having the flu (physical stress) and at the same time there is loud construction going on next door (sensory stress). In that case, your stress level and blood pressure will rise more than just having one of those factors alone.
When your body is under oxidized or any other stress for a long time, your brain gets into the habit of triggering high blood pressure. It becomes chronic; habitual. So even if the stress factors leave, your blood pressure stays high.
The way to deal with this is to break “the habit of high blood pressure.” You do this by giving yourself “a Focused Break.” It only takes a few minutes, but you’ll immediately experience a drop in blood pressure.
