High Blood Pressure Natural Therapies Can Help


“Dr. Godo takes a different approach and look to find the underlying cause of high blood pressure.”

Every time your heart beats, it pumps blood to your whole body through miles of arteries. High blood pressure also called “hypertension” refers to blood pushing against the walls of the arteries with too much force or pressure. Blood pressure that rises above normal levels and remains high can lead to serious health problems including heart attack, heart failure, stroke and kidney failure to name a few.Dr. Jason Godo DC

25% of all adults in the US are being treated for high blood pressure, and about 33% of people have high blood pressure and don’t even know it. Let’s look at the facts about blood pressure so you can better understand how your body works and why it is smart to start protecting yourself now.

With blood pressure measurement, the top number known as the systolic pressure represents the pressure within the arteries when the heart contracts or “beats” while pumping blood. The second number, diastolic pressure, represents the pressure in the arteries when the heart relaxes between beats and fills with blood.

An ideal blood pressure according to some experts is 115 / 75. Some doctors consider 120 / 80 good. The most important thing is to find out what your blood pressure numbers are and be informed so you know what you should do based on your family history and risk factors. The risk of high blood pressure increases with age as arterial walls lose their elasticity.

There can be many contributing factors, yet 90-95% of high blood pressure is  considered idiopathic by conventional medicine which by definition means “of no known cause” hereby prescription drugs are given and patients are told they will be on the medication for the rest of their lives. And because reductions in high blood pressure are so slight for various factors, drugs have to be used in combination. So it is very common for a patient to be on several expensive blood pressure medications for life, medications that can cause serious side effects long term and do not address the underlying  physiologic causes.

Dr. Godo takes a different approach and look to find the underlying cause. Some of the common causes for high blood pressure are stress, excessive consumption of sodium found in refined salt, a diet low in calcium, magnesium and potassium, insulin resistance, excessive alcohol intake, being overweight, accumulation of heavy metals such as lead, mercury or cadmium, prescription drugs including steroids, birth control pills, decongestants, NSAIDs and diet pills, and health problems including chronic kidney disease, thyroid disease and sleep apnea.

In 2010 about 58.6 million adults in the US were treated for high blood pressure. Direct health care spending to treat hypertension totaled $42.9 billion with over half of that being spent on prescription drugs. When we consider the huge profits for drug companies, wouldn’t you be suspicious if someone recommends you stay on their medication for life? I would.

People turn to medications because they are convinced it’s their only course of action. If you have high blood pressure you have reason to be concerned. High blood pressure means you are walking toward the edge of the cliff of cardiovascular disease, stroke, kidney failure and other complications. But there are natural therapies that can help. You can stop and turn around.

A 12 week double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 83 people with systolic hypertension examined the effect of CoQ10 supplements. After the 12 weeks, there was a reduction in systolic blood pressure of 17.8 mm Hg in the CoQ10-treated group.

In another double-blind placebo-controlled study of 935 patients with high blood pressure, researchers found omega-3 oil supplementation resulted in significant reductions in total cholesterol and blood pressure and significant increase in HDL. In addition, omega-3 oils were shown to prevent primary or secondary coronary heart disease.

Other supplements like vitamin D, vitamin C, magnesium and potassium have been shown to reduce blood pressure in some individuals, that’s why it’s best to let Dr. Godo determine which nutrients are best for you.

Finding the source of high blood pressure is detective work. It may take regular visits and several tiers of lab testing but your Wellness clinician can help you bring your blood pressure down naturally and safely without the side effects of drugs.

Dr. Jason Godo, DCHigh blood pressure is a warning light on your “health dashboard” signaling there’s a problem. Blood pressure medications can cost $150 or more each month. Are you willing to be put on a medication for the rest of your life with a list of side effects that go on and on? Wouldn’t you rather discover what’s causing the problem, get healthy again and feel great?

More and more people are keeping their blood pressure in normal ranges and they are doing it naturally. Get started with an effective plan that is right for you. It’s not too late. Get your blood pressure tested and talk to Dr. Godo who can coach you, find the underlying causes of high blood pressure and help you make positive changes.

The quality of your life matters and it affects how you enjoy life and your relationships. Don’t wait for a crisis. Living with your blood pressure in a safe normal range can have enormous benefits for your overall optimal health.

Natural Hypertension Solutions


 

“Over 90-95% of hypertension is considered to have no known cause and treated with drugs that can cause serious long term side effects.”

“How did we get to a place in medicine where it is considered unconventional to ask people to stop smoking, meditate, walk, and eat a healthy diet and conventional to cut people open, blow balloons up in their arteries, and put radioactive stents in them.” That’s a quote from a new book by Dr. Alex Vasquez “Chiropractic Management of Chronic Hypertension.” Dr. Vasquez presents natural and life changing solutions for hypertension, which is the medical term for high blood pressure.

In his book, he reveals that over 90-95% of hypertension is considered idiopathic which by definition means “of no known cause.” In the medical community if there’s no known cause, treat it with drugs. Medical standards dictate that anti-hypertensive drugs have to be taken for the rest of the patient’s life. And because reductions in high blood pressure are so slight, drugs have to be used in combination.

So it is very common for a patient to be on several expensive anti-hypertensive medications for life; medications that can cause serious long term side effects and do not address the underlying physiologic causes.

Consider that hypertension is more than a disease; it is a business, big business. “Among allopathic /osteopathic family medical practices it is the leading cause for patient visits and clearly the leading diagnosis in family medical practice.” Direct annual costs far exceed 185 billion per year in the United States. In fact in 1998, the direct costs of hypertension in the United States were calculated to be 12.6 % of health care expenditures. That was in 1998. The last time I checked, medical costs were still rising.

People turn to medications because they are convinced it’s their only course of action. If you have high blood pressure, you have reason to be concerned. Hypertension means you are walking toward the edge of the cliff of cardiovascular disease and strokes. But there are natural therapies that can help. You can stop and turn around.

Over 25 years ago, my friend came to one of our multidiscipline clinics with a blood pressure of 220/120. After three chiropractic visits, the numbers dropped to a staggering 160/100. After reviewing his lab work, we found elevated heavy metals specifically cadmium. After 6 months on a nutrient dense program, he was able to drop it further to 120/80. What makes his story so amazing is that he continued to work 16 hours a day, fathering 9 children while being treated, so the treatment was effective even under extreme stress.

Finding the source of hypertension is detective work, and it may take multiple visits and several tiers of lab testing. Dr. Godo can help you bring your blood pressure down naturally and safely without the side effects of drugs.

Many people don’t know that vitamin D, Coenzyme Q along with certain types of therapeutic fasting, as well as diet and lifestyle changes, have been effective in reducing blood pressure. Instead of being on a medication for life, make lifestyle changes for life that will help you spring back to good health.

Hypertension is a warning light on your “health dashboard” signaling for you to make major changes. Blood pressure medications can cost $150 or more each month, and the list of side effects goes on and on. Why would we ever consider this treatment conventional?

Instead, take a Wellness approach to high blood pressure. See Dr. Godo, and get started on a program that is right for you. It’s not too late. With a little help, you can do it. Dr. Godo will address the “underlying causes” of why your blood pressure is elevated and help you make positive changes, changes that enhance optimal health and have enormous long term benefits.

Natural Treatment Options For High Blood Pressure


One out of every three people has hypertension or high blood pressure. Traditional medicine offers prescription drugs to treat hypertension; however, medical journals admit not enough is being done to treat the condition. The reality is, by using current drug therapy, only 34% have their blood pressure adequately controlled. 34% is not that great.

I believe that a Wellness approach can produce not only much higher percentages than drugs but better results without the negative side effects. If one out of every three adults in America has hypertension, isn’t it obvious that our diet and lifestyle could be a major factor? The one out of three statistic includes those that have been diagnosed, who know and understand their condition, and those who are undiagnosed.

The undiagnosed represent the largest population. Hypertension is an industry in and of itself. Major pharmaceutical companies compete and lobby to get their blood pressure drug on the market. With documented “limited” success, not to mention the side effects, many people are put on these drugs for life. The 5-Minute Clinical Consult 2010 edition stated that “direct annual medical expenses related to hypertension exceed $185 billion per year, with most patients requiring multiple drugs.”

Think of hypertension as a warning sign, a signal that you don’t want to ignore. Hypertension is the result of a deeper but sometimes easily correctable condition. The body is giving feedback. Increased blood pressure is a sympathetic reaction signaling that something is wrong. A Wellness approach is to figure out what’s causing the sympathetic overdrive. Remember, in Wellness, we always want to have the courage and patience to find the underlying cause. In emergency cases, temporary use of prescription drugs can save lives, but long term use “avoids” the problem. At best, you keep the problem at bay, not to mention the harmful side effects.

Did you know that Dr. Godo offers natural alternatives for hypertension? Finding the underlying factors is essential when dealing with blood pressure cases. Dr. Godo offers effective strategies and testing.

Dr. Alex Vasquez, a research physician for Biotics Research Corporation, believes “complimentary or alternative medicine, particularly chiropractic, should be the mainstream approach to hypertension.” Natural therapies to increase nitric oxide, chelate metals, support epithelial vascular tissue, stabilize blood sugar as well as chiropractic adjustments can be effective with hypertension cases. Also, Coenzyme Q along with diet and lifestyle changes can help normalize blood pressure.

Traditionally the definition of hypertension is defined as elevated systolic over 140 or the diastolic pressure greater than 90. Surprising, 68% of all death occurred with systolic blood pressure between 120 and 140 and diastolic below 90. New guidelines suggest mortality increases starting at 115/75.

Consider this double blind placebo controlled study. Fifty drug naïve patients plus 24 patients washed out from medication, all with stage one hypertension, were randomized. Some received a national upper cervical chiropractic adjustment called NUCCA, the others received a sham procedure or placebo. After 8 weeks, the NUCCA group had a reduction in systolic blood pressure of -17 vs. the placebo group with a -3. Also, diastolic blood pressure was reduced in the NUCCA group -10 vs. the placebo group with -2. No adverse side effects were recorded. Authors concluded “that restoration of atlas alignment is associated with marked and sustained reductions of blood pressure similar to the use of two drug combination therapy. This study is very dramatic and should document the value of chiropractic in the treatment of hypertension.”

Let me emphasize again, Wellness treatments have “positive” corollary side effects; meaning not only does your blood pressure normalize, you may have more energy or notice your joints are less stiff, any number of “positive” side effects are possible. However, virtually ALL drugs carry negative side effects over a period of time.

For some of you, taking a Wellness approach is a major paradigm shift. If you have questions, there are reliable sources that can help. The science of Wellness is documented and exciting to explore. Like most people, you may be concerned about the expense. Just keep in mind, conventional blood pressure medications can cost $150 or more each month.

When is the last time you had your blood pressure checked? Remember, 1 out of every 3 people has hypertension. Think of the benefits for your overall health if you lower your blood pressure “naturally.” I believe you can.

Don’t ignore the warning signs, don’t put it off. Have your blood pressure checked and ask Dr. Godo about natural therapies for hypertension.
