According to the American Heart Association, currently about 103 million Americans have high blood pressure—that’s nearly HALF of adults in the US!
High blood pressure is the number one cause of heart disease and stroke, plus it raises your risk of heart failure and heart attack too. It can also damage small arteries, resulting in kidney failure or vision loss, and raises your risk of dementia.
And most recently, it is a co-morbid condition that exponentially increases your COVID-19 mortality risk!
Do something about your high blood pressure now!
The good news is, high blood pressure can be reduced safely and naturally! Here’s how:
Avoid packaged foods, fast food and refined carbs
Avoiding packaged foods, fast food and refined carbs (like bread, pasta, chips, sweets and soda) helps you naturally eliminate two of the biggest dietary culprits behind high blood pressure—salt and sugar.
Get enough Omega-3 essential fatty acids
Omega-3 essential fatty acids have been proven to lower blood pressure, but sadly most Americans are deficient in these crucial fats. Our food supply doesn’t have nearly the Omega-3 fats that it used to, and even much of the fresh fish that was a significant source of Omega-3 EFAs is now farmed and toxic.
The best way to engage the natural anti-inflammatory power of Omega-3 fats to help lower your blood pressure is to take a pharmaceutical-grade fish oil supplement that includes EPA and DHA, which are crucial to heart health.
Squeeze in some exercise
Regular exercise has been shown in countless studies to help lower blood pressure.
You don’t need to get fancy or join a gym! You can walk in your neighborhood or on a treadmill, join a class, or use DVDs in your home.
Stress and hypertension go hand in hand, so do whatever you need to do to reduce stress in your life.
Regular exercise is a natural stress reducer as well as a great way to lower blood pressure, so that’s another good reason to dust off those sneakers.
You can also try meditation, acupuncture, deep breathing, prayer and even adopting a pet.
Now you can start on your way to healthier blood pressure and improved overall health!
To your health,
