Did you know that when the American Heart Association came out with new blood pressure guidelines nearly two years ago, nearly everyone was put on the “at risk” list?
The agency says these lower numbers can save lives.
But I’ll let you in on a little secret…
Drug companies have influenced the new cholesterol guidelines SO MUCH that it’s becoming very obvious the system is RIGGED!
Conventional doctors feel FORCED to put their patients on a statin, for fear of looking like a “bad doctor.”
In fact, the situation has gotten so bad my patients are telling me their doctors practically GUILT them into taking a statin.
Even worse...there’s absolutely no proof that high cholesterol even CAUSES heart disease!
And now, new research has linked hypertension drugs with dementia…
That’s right; the drugs you may not even need could be DESTROYING your BRAIN.
Today, you’ll see this scary new research—and I’ll help you get OFF those meds once and for all...
Blood pressure drugs are DANGEROUS
High blood pressure (over 140) has been implicated in dementia. So it makes sense your doctor would want you to drop your blood pressure levels to protect both your heart and mind.
But mainstream doctors simply don’t yet realize truth about hypertension drugs.
They’re too constrained by Big Pharma…and they haven’t been following the evidence piling up against these meds.
The latest studies, published in JAMA (Journal of the American Medicine Association), reveal blood pressure levels below 120 are actually MORE problematic than those between 130 and 140.
It turns out folks with blood pressure under 120 had less brain mass!
A separate study showed people with hypertension in middle age followed by hypotension later (less than 90) had a significant jump in dementia risk.
Now, the point here isn't to scare you about lowering your blood pressure…
It’s just that these studies are PROOF POSITIVE mainstream medicine is going about it ALL WRONG.
You see, it's only during intense treatments—like with blood pressure lowering medications—that this happens.
Normotensive (people with "normal" blood pressure levels) don't experience this higher risk of dementia. I'll tell you how to do this in a moment...
But first, you need to know which drugs can cause your blood pressure drop to BRAIN-KILLING levels.
Statins are the obvious drug as their purpose is to lower your blood pressure. But there are others that can TANK your blood pressure such as:
- Alpha blockers
- Beta blockers
- Drugs for Parkinson's disease
- Tricyclic antidepressants, including doxepin (Silenor) and imipramine (Tofranil)
- Drugs for erectile dysfunction
While you're on these drugs, monitor your blood pressure carefully.
Or—better yet—try these methods to get off them completely…
How to get OFF hypertension drugs
There's a specific vitamin you are probably deficient in if you have hypertension: B9, or folate.
In a study involving over 20,000 participants, folks who took folate had a significantly less chance of having a stroke compared to those that didn't.
Now, you can find B9 in B vitamin complexes and multivitamins. But you'll often find it listed as folic acid.
Folic acid is the synthetic form. It's difficult for you to absorb, so it's almost worthless.
If you're looking at a label, "folate" is what you want to see. However, it's BEST to get B9 from foods like dark, leafy greens. You'll also get plenty of other nutrients, including fiber, that can help restore your blood pressure to a normal level.
And remember, the “Big Two” to getting off hypertension drugs naturally are always going to be diet and exercise.
Exercise, even something as simple as walking 30 minutes a day, can relieve the tension in your veins; so can eating a diet devoid of processed foods and sugar (like the Paleo diet).
