"Sodium also raises your blood pressure. If you have high blood pressure (hypertension), you probably have already been told by your physician to reduce your sodium intake. If you do not have high blood pressure or you do not know if you do, you can still benefit from lowering your sodium levels. It has been shown that lowering sodium intake will help lower your blood pressure, and since high blood pressure is known as "the silent killer" and a major cause of heart disease and stroke, it just makes sense."

"African-Americans have higher blood pressure levels than white Americans, and researchers have found that blood pressure levels are indeed correlated with skin darkness.3 However, although molecular genetic researchers would find that genes producing darker skin color correlate with blood pressure levels, it does not mean that these genes cause high blood pressure. Clearly, environmental factors affecting people with dark skin might completely explain the correlation. "

"Blood pressure Although blood pressure increases with age, young people as well as the elderly can suffer from high blood pressure. And if you let it go, it can cause serious damage. If you have high blood pressure, it indicates that there is excessive force being used by the heart to pump blood throughout the body, which WARNING There are no symptoms for high to 8et blood and oxygen t0 the body's or8ans Some factors that increase the likelihood of high blood pressure are race (African Americans are particularly prone), age, obesity, smoking, and sedentary lifestyle."

"But before starting DHEA, I recommend trying some licorice root if your blood pressure is low. Licorice root is almost the perfect antidote for tired adrenals (a common cause of Spent and low DHEA). So if your blood pressure is low and you haven't already incorporated this into your program, take licorice root extract (Glycyrrhiza glabra) (standardized to 25% [150 milligrams] glycyrrhizic acid) twice a day. If you don't feel better after four weeks, you can see if DHEA is more helpful."

"When his doctor took his blood pressure and saw that it had dropped within normal range, what could he say? He was the one who had told Louie that he had high blood pressure in the first place and now, even though Louie was eating seaweed and unrefined sea salt, his blood pressure was back to normal. The doctor had never seen that, and of course Louie was as astonished as the doctor was, and more motivated than ever to follow my program."

"Warning: Do not take salt or licorice root if your blood pressure is high or high normal as it can increase your blood pressure! Side effects to look out for if you take licorice are fluid retention and a low potassium level. For more information, go to www.spentmd.com. O Do 40 minutes of restorative exercise outside in the sun. O Continue adding probiotics to your morning smoothie. O Continue taking a multivitamin, an adaptogenic formula, and flaxseed or fish oil."

"Mullin's blood pressure fell so low the hospital staff couldn't get a reading. Doctors managed to resuscitate Mullin with injections of cardiac medications and massive plasma and blood infusions. That evening he was told that his heart was so weak he might not live through the night. But he did. The following day, doctors were finally able to stop the gastrointestinal bleeding and regulate Mullin's heartbeat and blood pressure. He was released one week later on heavy doses of oral steroids. The pain remained untenable."

"However, although molecular genetic researchers would find that genes producing darker skin color correlate with blood pressure levels, it does not mean that these genes cause high blood pressure. Clearly, environmental factors affecting people with dark skin might completely explain the correlation. "If you follow me around Nordstrom's, and put me in jail at nine times the rate of whites, and refuse to give me a bank loan, I might get hypertensive," argued sociologist Troy Duster. "What's generating my increased blood pressure are the social forces at play, not my DNA."

"You should not take Adrenal Boost, however, if you have high blood pressure, because licorice root can elevate blood pressure. In summary, you do not have to allow stress and/or poor lifestyle choices to upset your hormone balance. A proactive regimen of self-care is the best way to vaporize those weight-loss saboteurs that lurk in the corners of your everyday life."

"The consumption of Lactobacilli, or products made from them, such as milk that is fermented by Lactobacilli, may reduce blood pressure in mildly hypertensive people. Population (epidemiological) studies suggest that milk consumption or dairy proteins are related to a decreased risk of hypertension. Some intervention studies have shown milk products and dairy proteins have a blood pressure-lowering effect. Milk proteins are broken down by enzymes in your stomach and by enzymes produced by Lactobacilli. The broken-down milk proteins are called milk peptides."

"It's a blood pressure medication. It is used rather widely to treat ADHD, though, because it helps calm kids down, without having an effect upon their blood pressures. I prescribe it to kids with the hyperactive and impulsive subtype of ADHD, and generally get positive results. On occasion, I also apply it to autistic kids who have pronounced impulsive features. In some children, however, this drug can be too sedating. Mood stabilizers, such as Depakote, Trileptal, or Lamictal, may help some kids with severe ADHD that is unresponsive to stimulants."

"Elevated insulin levels are associated with elevations in cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, and risk of death from cardiovascular disease." - Michael T. Murray, N.D., The Textbook of Natural Medicine Heart disease is a broad medical term covering a variety of physical and biochemical disorders affecting the heart and circulatory system. For the last several decades, heart disease has been routinely associated with the consumption of fat, but today, new evidence is turning that theory on its head."

"Blood Pressure Exercise lowers blood pressure. Colon Exercise is a key factot in promoting peristalsis and relieving constipation. Bones Exercise increases bone density. Cancer As the New England Journal of Medicine teported in their May 1, 1997 issue, women who exercise regularly reduce theit risk of breast cancer by 72%. Strength Strength is not just for showing off in the weight room. It is essential as we get older. People who exercise regularly are far less likely to fall and break bones."

"The Doctor's Complete Guide to Vitamins and Minerals There are, in fact, many health problems associated with the excess consumption of caffeine: Caffeine is a problem for people with heart disease, as it heightens the blood pressure and puts stress on the circulatory system. I tell my patients with angina to limit themselves to no more than one caffeinated drink per day. Most people opt for a cup of coffee in the morning and cut out all additional coffee or caffeinated sodas or teas."

"Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) study, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and low in saturated fat reduced blood pressure even when salt intake and weight remained unchanged. (Lawrence J. Appel, et al., "A Clinical Trial of the Effects of Dietary Patterns on blood pressure," New England Journal of Medicine, Vol. 336, No. 16, April 17, 1997.) Neither of these studies relied on food-frequency questionnaires; rather, the researchers prepared the meals for the participants."

"Here's the link between dietary carbohydrates and Syndrome X, as explained in The Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine: Syndrome Xis a term used to describe a set of cardiovascular risk factors, including glucose or insulin disturbances, high blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels, elevated blood pressure, and android obesity. The underlying metabolic denominator in Syndrome Xis elevated insulin levels. There is little doubt about what contributes to these elevations: an elevated intake of refined carbohydrates."

"My blood chemistry nails the "healthy" mark on every single test such as liver enzyme function, blood platelet counts, cholesterol levels, and so on. My blood pressure is 105/65 and I have extraordinary bone mass density that makes my bones remarkably strong. (50 percent more dense than the bones of a 25 year old, actually.) I'm not saying any of this to brag, but rather to share with you the extraordinary results that can be achieved by any person who applies sound nutritional wisdom with strength training and cardiovascular training over a period of several years."

"This ventricular thickening forces the blood pressure to increase, reduces the amount of blood that is discharged from the heart, and makes it harder for the heart to fill. Keeping the ventricle soft and "compliant" is a major energy booster in the heart, and is key to cardiac health. Diastolic dysfunction, an inability of the heart to relax, stretch, and fill, is an early sign of cardiac struggle despite the presence of normal systolic function. Approximately 25 percent of the population over age forty-five (male and female) has diastolic dysfunction to a greater or lesser extent."

"Once a therapeutic effect is obtained, that is, there is improved well-being, lowered blood pressure, improved shortness of breath, better gum tissues, and so on, the maintenance dose may be adjusted. For many cardiac conditions, especially CHF and cardiomyopathy, I have observed that the therapeutic dose must be maintained or symptoms will return. Many patients who are well maintained on coenzyme Qi0 will also have a return of symptoms if they change the brand or the dosage they are taking."

"In a study of 109 patients with hypertensive heart disease and isolated diastolic dysfunction, coenzyme Q10 supplementation resulted in clinical improvement, lowered elevated blood pressure, enhanced diastolic cardiac function, and decreased myocardial thickness in 53 percent of hypertensive patients. In another long-term study of 424 patients with systolic and/or diastolic dysfunction for over an eight year period, an average 240 mg daily dose of coenzyme Qio maintained blood levels above 2.0 ug/ml, and allowed 43 percent of the participants to discontinue one to three conventional drugs."

- Stephen T. Sinatra, M.D., The Sinatra Solution Metabolic Cardiology (Get the book.)

"The absence of antihypertensive response in 45 percent of the study participants suggests the possibility of a threshold effect in coenzyme Qio's mechanism of action; study participants' blood pressure seemed to either respond well or not at all. Since this study was not designed to evaluate dose-response relationships, it is possible that a higher dose may have increased the number of responders in the study. In yet another study, 109 patients with known hypertension were given 225 mg of coenzyme Qiq daily."

"The participants ate three different diets for eight weeks each, and researchers monitored their blood pressure. The control diet was low in potassium, magnesium, and calcium. The second diet was high in fruits and vegetables and rich in potassium and magnesium but low in calcium due to the absence of dairy. The third—a combination diet—added low-fat dairy to the fruit-and-vegetable diet and reduced the saturated fat. All the diets provided the same amount of calories and salt."

"These fats improve your kidneys' ability to excrete acid, lower your blood pressure, lower your triglycerides, and raise your good cholesterol. They also decrease production of inflammatory substances that accelerate damage to your blood vessels and lead to heart attacks and strokes and that aggravate inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. The amount of protein you eat determines how much produce you need to eat. The American Dietetic Association lists protein requirements at 0.8 gram per kilogram of body weight, or 0.36 gram per pound of body weight. Research reviewed by Dr."

"Any emotion influences the nervous system, causing physiological alterations like blood pressure increasing, heartbeat varying, pupils contracting and dilating, breathing frequency and intensity changing. Homeostasis and psychosomatic equilibrium undergo great modifications: despite our body's natural tendency to restore its equilibrium when the stimulus is over, the nervous system's excessive stimulating may lead to the state of chronic "alert" and consequently to chronic psychosomatic stress."

"GLOSSARY ACE inhibitor —Type of drug used to lower blood pressure. It may also help prevent or slow the progression of kidney disease in people with diabetes. acute—Happening for a limited period of time and/or coming on abruptly. adrenal glands—Two organs sitting on top of the kidneys that make and release hormones such as adrenaline (epinephrine). albuminuria—Having an excess amount of protein called albumin in the urine. Albuminuria may indicate kidney disease. aldose reductase inhibitor—A class of drugs under investigation as a way to prevent eye and nerve damage in people with diabetes."

"On a physical level hawthorn improves circulation, lowers blood pressure, and reduces palpitations and arrhythmia as well as serving as a remedy for degenerative heart disease and heart failure. As a heart tonic hawthorn is preventive for all manner of heart conditions. As a flower essence Hawthorn relieves a heart saddened by separation or love loss. It also opens the heart, helping one to give and receive love.

"According to the CDC, about 73 percent of adults with diabetes have blood pressure greater than or equal to 130/80 mm Hg or use prescription medications for hypertension. DENTAL DISEASE Periodontal (gum) disease is more common among people with diabetes. Among young adults, those with diabetes have about twice the risk of those without diabetes. Almost one-third of people with diabetes have severe periodontal diseases with loss of attachment of the gums to the teeth measuring 5 millimeters or more. Improving your dental health can also help with glycemic control."

"CoQIO, which seems to be quite good for this, also results in improvements in blood sugar, blood pressure, and uptakes of C, E, and beta-carotene. Alpha lipoic acid is specifically good for improving insulin resistance (sensitivity). Fiber creates an improved insulin resistance. Saturated fats make the insulin resistance worse. Vegetables decrease fasting insulin. Vitamin A-rich foods decrease insulin resistance. Stress also plays a role at the insulin resistance level. Acute stress seems to be clearly associated with severe, although reversible, insulin resistance."
