[AlternativeAnswers] Blood Pressure Meds are Fat Fertilizer

 


Blood Pressure Meds are Fat Fertilizer

By Shane Ellison

www.thepeopleschemist.com <http://www.thepeopleschemist.com/>

Not all prescription drugs are bad. Some are really bad, like the drugs
used to lower your blood pressure. Among the top ten drugs prescribed in
the U.S, blood pressure (hypertension) medications ensnare millions into
the prescription drug trap. That trap kills 200,000 and injures close to
2.2 million Americans every year. Fortunately,, you can beat dangerous
blood pressure levels by improving your lifestyle habits and turning to
natural medicine.

Like Miracle Grow™ on plants, drugs such as Toprol-XL™,
Lopressor™ (metoprolol), Tenormin™ (atenolol) and Coreg™
(carvedilol) serve as fat fertilizer to the human body. A family of
receptors known as "beta-receptors" activates your fat
metabolism. Like a lock that has been broken, many blood pressure drugs
jam beta receptors and prevent them from responding to your own fat
burning molecules (the keys to the lock). Your body then begins to store
fat and use carbohydrates (sugar) as fuel. Once sugar becomes the
primary source of fuel, your body begins screaming for it. Sugar
addiction sets in. Fat gain ensues. And type II diabetes follows.
Patients who "follow doctor's orders" and swallow
"beta-blockers" and "diuretics" are at a 28 percent to
50 percent greater risk of suffering from type II diabetes – the
greatest health challenge of the 21st century. Diabetes can eliminate a
whopping 11-20 years from your lifespan.

Unfortunately, taking blood pressure medications can lead to many other
serious and even deadly side effects. For instance, calcium channel
blockers such as Adalat, Procardia™ (nifedipine), and Norvasc™
(amlodipine) are not safe alternatives. By blocking calcium from
entering the heart, users are put at greater risk of dying from heart
failure. While your "numbers" might look good by taking these
drugs, your heart is slowly weakening. Cancer is also a possibility. In
1996, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) warned that,
"Postmenopausal women who took calcium channel blockers had twice
the risk of developing breast cancer than other women." No diet,
supplement, or lifestyle can save you from the deadly side-effects of
blood pressure meds. Fortunately, we don't need them to avoid the
dangers of "high" blood pressure.

The Fabricated Illness

High blood pressure - as defined by the drug industry and medical
doctors - is not an instant death sentence! The goal of maintaining a
blood pressure at or near 140/80 (or more recently, 115/75) is based on
drug company hype, not science. These numbers are designed to sell drugs
by converting healthy people into patients.

Rising blood pressure is a normal process of aging and does not require
drug intervention – even when it reaches 140/80. Medical literature
shows that as we age, blood pressure rises slightly – probably to
accommodate for an increased need for oxygen and nutrients. And this
increase does not put us at any risk of early death.

If high blood pressure were dangerous, then lowering it with
hypertension drugs would increase lifespan. Yet, clinical trials
involving hypertension medication show no increased lifespan among users
when compared to non-users.

It is completely natural for the first number (systolic) to be 100 plus
our age. If blood pressure rises slightly above this parameter, it can
be controlled naturally with key lifestyle habits and nutritional
supplements.

Minimizing sugar and eliminating artificial flavors are two of the best
things you can do to obtain a relatively normal blood pressure.
Replacing carbohydrate (bread, pasta, desserts and excess
fruit)consumption with healthy fats such as coconut oil, eggs, grass fed
beef, wild salmon, avocados, seeds, and nuts will also help control your
blood pressure… plus, it can eliminate unsightly belly fat. And
finally, interval training (send email to healthmyths@getresponse.com
<http://nz.mc1134.mail.yahoo.com/mc/compose?to=healthmyths@getresponse.c\
om
> for free workout) one to three times per week is vital for a
healthy cardiovascular system.

Stopping Heart Disease With Artery-Preserving Molecules

Blood pressure can rise to temporary extremes in response to stress,
infection, fasting, dehydration, or simply from walking into a
doctor's office. Of course, these temporary instances of high blood
pressure do not rationalize a lifetime of drug use.

And it's prudent to be concerned should you experience chronic high
blood pressure - which can be dangerous. This usually occurs when blood
vessels become stiff due to hardening of the arteries (heart disease),
causing your blood pressure to skyrocket to 200/100.

Fortunately, you don't need blood pressure drugs to handle even
these worrisome levels. In situations where high blood pressure might
become life threatening, using cardiovascular nutrients such as
L-arginine, magnesium aspartate, and a 95 percent grape seed extract
(click here
<http://health-fx.net/store/product.php?productid=16139&cat=259&page=1>
to purchase as a whole supplement) can be a potent natural remedy. Based
on Nobel Prize winning science, these artery-preserving molecules
increase the production of nitric oxide, a molecule that allows for the
dilation and relaxation of arteries. Using cardiovascular nutrients can
prevent heart attack and stroke that may result from impeded blood flow
or inflammation caused by rising blood pressure.

Like all drugs touted as vitamins, blood pressure medications are made
to sell not heal - they cater to fear rather than health. If you
understand this, you'll avoid the deadly prescription drug trap and
keep yourself safe and healthy.
