High Blood Pressure: The Nutrition Solution

High Blood Pressure: The Nutrition Solution

Artery health is immensely important in the fight against hypertension (high blood pressure). Studies have shown that the proper diet associated with appropriate physical activity, such as exercise can substantially impact hypertension. There have been numerous cases in which people on high blood pressure medication either had the doses lowered or were taken off the medication all together. There are natural means of addressing every illness and condition and hypertension is no different ~ Dr. Rick Wallace 

Most all of us are deficient in our dietary intake of omega 3’s from seafood, Vitamin D and calcium found in nonfat dairy foods, and potassium, magnesium, fiber, and unique plant compounds called anti-oxidants and phytonutrients found in veggies, fruit, beans, and wholegrains. These are the nutrients that determine the health of our arteries and our blood pressure levels, as well as the strength of our immune systems. By upping these nutrients to recommended levels, we can drop our systolic blood pressure 8-15 “points” in just 6 weeks, according to multiple nationwide studies supporting the DASH diet (“Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension”).

“Although sodium reduction adds additional benefits, these nutrients will lower blood pressure even when sodium is not reduced! Great news for the 1 out of 3 Americans fighting high blood pressure and trying to minimize, avoid, or delay medications. Weight loss and daily physical activity improve artery health, lessen artery inflammation, and improve blood pressure. We cannot afford to neglect our arteries – they provide the riverways that enable blood flow throughout our bodies, feeding our brains, hearts, limbs, organs with necessary oxygen and nutrients to keep up healthy and moving! Healthy arteries help prevent clots and heart attacks and strokes. To learn more about blood pressure control with diet, and sodium reduction tips, see my book, The Cooper Solution to the Diet Revolution, pages 227-229 and download this free handout.”
