hypertension treatments – seperating myth from fact
You don’t have to spend too much time searching the web to find dire warnings about hypertension “the silent killer” urging you to run to your doctors and start a lifelong enslavement to the pharmaceutical industry.
Here’s an example from South Africa (www.findarticles.za.org):
High blood pressure rates are also growing among American children, paralleling an epidemic of obesity. Hypertension in grownups will usually be measured on at least two different trips to the doctor before a diagnosis is made. It can be treated by both modifying lifestyles, usually as the first step, and, if necessary, with medications. Diuretics work in the kidney and flush out excess water and sodium from the body.
Nearly 1 in 3 American adults has hypertension. Once It develops, it usually remains for the rest of your lifetime. Fortunately, it can be easily detected, and once you know you have it, you can work with your physician to control it.

Controlling hypertension through medications should really be left as a last resort when everything else fails. Why?
Medications do not treat the cause of high blood pressure – just the symptoms – which means you’ll have to take them till the end of your days.
Statistics show that people on blood pressure controlling drugs are more likely to die from heart disease that those not on them.
Blood pressure controlling drugs often come with side effects that can significantly reduce your quality of life.
Certain exercises and dietary changes can reduce blood pressure to safe levels in 90%+ of high blood pressure sufferers. The end result is not just the end of severe hypertension but a healthier, happier and longer life.
