How I lowered my dad's blood pressure in just a few days, without drugs or diets:
Or look at how to lower your blood pressure, naturally:
# hypertension # high blood pressure
WARNING: Two medications for blood pressure increase your risk of death! 👈
High blood pressure (hypertension) is a major risk factor for heart disease, which can lead to a heart attack or stroke.
In fact, hypertension is called the "silent killer" because it has no real symptoms. In addition, most adults over 35 have prehypertension and do not even know it. Especially with the most stressful lifestyles of today.
And one of the main causes is aging and negative changes in your hormones as you get older. But, I'll get to that in a minute.
Today's topic is about two very popular medications for blood pressure, which actually increase the risk of death and, therefore, should be avoided.
In a recent study in 20181, a scientist discovered that people who use alpha blockers and / or alpha-2 agonists to control their blood pressure show greater variability in blood pressure measurements between doctor visits, which is associated with a higher risk of death.
And this study was based on more than 10,500 patients between 2007-2012, over a period of 5 years.
Basically, this means that these medications are not consistent to keep your blood pressure stable. Due to the increase in variability and, therefore, the fluctuations throughout the day, dramatically increases your risk of a heart attack or stroke and, ultimately, death.
These medications are not doing what they are designed to do. Fluctuations throughout the day actually put more stress on your body, which causes other negative hormonal changes.
The researchers stated that other classes of medications for hypertension, such as Ace inhibitors, calcium channel blockers and thiazide diuretics, are safer. However, these medications also have numerous side effects, including
Mental and physical fatigue.
Anxiety, nervousness and depression.
What is interesting to note is that there are half a dozen different TYPES of medications for hypertension, with almost 70 medications in total, all designed to lower blood pressure.
And an overwhelming 88% of the time: doses must be increased and / or multiple-hypertension medications are used in combination to help lower blood pressure.
All these are just horrible news, especially considering the fact that blood pressure increases steadily with age due to a variety of factors, one of the main ones being the negative changes in hormones due to aging.
I mention all this because I have high blood pressure on both sides of the family, especially my father's. So sure, I stopped taking the medication years ago because we only saw the negative side effects and we knew it would only get worse as he got older.
