New evidence suggests that many of those on high blood pressure drugs can reduce or eliminate their medications using natural strategies.
Dr Maximino Mejia of Andrews University and colleagues at
California’s Weimar Institute have written the latest chapter on how natural
therapies can reverse high blood pressure. Presenting at the American Society
for Nutrition’s annual meeting in Boston, Dr Mejia showed how a programme
incorporating factors such as plant-based nutrition, walking, liberal water
intake, and adequate rest could lower blood pressure as much as “what can
be achieved using three half-dose standard medications for blood
pressure.” Of 117 subjects studied, the researchers found that 93% of the participants
were able to either reduce the dose (24%) or eliminate their blood pressure
Compass Health Consulting’s President, David DeRose, MD, MPH, who was not involved in the study, commented, “This research provides further evidence for the position we took in our 2016 book ‘Thirty Days to Natural Blood Pressure Control’. Specifically, that the average person can reap impressive blood pressure improvements using natural strategies alone.”
In view of the accumulating evidence, Dr DeRose recommends that every person with high blood pressure begin today to make personal changes to better their readings. He offers a free online 30-day video program for assistance. With a viewing investment of only about five minutes per day, DeRose gives viewers essential tools to naturally control not only high blood pressure, but also the sister disease of type 2 diabetes.

High blood pressure (hypertension) can silently damage your body for years before symptoms develop. Left uncontrolled, it can lead to a range of disabilities, a poor quality of life, or even a fatal heart attack. Approximately half the people with untreated hypertension die of heart disease related to poor blood flow (ischemic heart disease) and another third die of stroke.
Treatment and lifestyle changes can help control high blood pressure and reduce the risk of life-threatening complications.
