blood pressure meds

  1. Want a hospital trip? Then keep taking those blood pressure meds...

    Folks, I've mentioned this a thousand times if I've written about it a half dozen...

    Blood pressure medications are WORTHLESS!

    These drugs have been linked to:

    • Increase risk of DEATH in people with diabetes
    • Increased risk of BONE FRACTURES
    • Recurrent BREAST CANCER
    • And more.

    Oh, and not to mention the recalls we've seen over the past year because so many have contained cancer-causing chemicals.

    And now, there’s yet ANOTHER reason to avoid them...

    Your one-way ticket to the hospital

    The hospital is NOT where you want to end up...

    I don’t have to tell you it's no fun sitting on a bed while a doctor takes your vitals and says you've just had a heart attack.

    Yet, if you're given a blood pressure lowering medication, you're likely to find yourself there—again... and again...

    Now, some doctors will tell you the “fix” is for you to go on antihypertensive drugs; that they are your only option for getting your blood pressure back in the right range.

    But recent research shows you should NOT DO THIS AT ALL!

    You see, folks who got a prescription for an antihypertensive drug AFTER being released from the hospital were more likely to:

    • Be RE-ADMITTED
    • Suffer a SERIOUS adverse event

    Adding insult to injury, after one year of taking blood pressure-lowering medications, no benefit was seen compared to folks who didn't!

    And here’s the real clincher...

    There are natural solutions that work BETTER than these worthless antihypertensive drugs!

    You can SLASH your blood pressure—naturally

    Of course, the best way to lower your blood pressure is with diet and exercise. Walking 20 minutes a day and ditching processed foods and sugars can do WONDERS for your health.

    Those should always be the first places you turn.

    But there's a SECRET to high blood pressure levels most doctors won't tell you. It has everything to do with WHY the problem is occurring in the first place...

    It involves three extremely important components produced naturally in your body—certain vitamins, a certain gas, and a certain amino acid:

    1. Three B vitamins are responsible for maintaining your blood pressure levels: folic acid, B6 and B12.

    They work by lowering levels of an amino acid called homocysteine. Homocysteine has been correlated with increased artery stiffness, leading to hypertension.

    1. Another player in the blood pressure game is nitric oxide (NO). It’s a gas produced in your body, naturally, that helps RELAX your blood vessels...

    Like many other processes in your body, NO becomes more difficult to produce the older you get.

    The result is stressed blood vessels that cause high blood pressure.

    1. And finally, an amino acid called L-arginine is able to aid those stressed blood vessels.

    Separately, these three components can help take your blood pressure down a notch.

    But when scientists gave them to seniors all at the same time, they found their blood pressure levels dropped dramatically -- to the tune of 6 mmHg in just 90 days.

    Compare THAT to the antihypertensive meds that didn't do ANYTHING after an entire year, and it really goes to show just how worthless blood pressure-lowering drugs truly are!

  2. The truth behind new BP drug claims

    The truth behind new BP drug claims

    Take your blood pressure meds and you'll live longer -- unless, of course, you don't.

    Maybe you've seen the new study that claims people who take drugs for hypertension outlive people who don't -- but there's one part of the study you almost certainly didn't see: The people who took the meds actually died at almost exactly the same rate as the ones who didn't.

    Confused? I don't blame you!

    But don't worry. I'll sort it out for you. Because as usual, this study (like so many others) is nothing more than pill-pushing nonsense from the mainstream, a shell game where they're trying to hide the REAL conclusion behind their flashy numbers.

    Here's what's under the first shell: Back in the 1980s, some 4,700 seniors were put on either BP meds or a placebo and tracked for 4.5 years. Then, when docs checked in on them some 22 years after the study ended, they found that 28.3 percent of the BP med patients ultimately died of cardiovascular causes, versus 31 percent of those who had been on the placebo.

    Sounds like a win for the drugs, right?

    But look beneath the other shell -- the one they're trying to hide -- and you'll see that over those same 22 years, 59.9 percent of those on meds died overall... along with 60.5 percent of those who had been given a placebo.

    That, my friends, is no difference at all. So despite all the hype and headlines, BP meds might put a little dent in your risk of dying of heart disease, but they won't actually reduce your overall risk of death.

    Or, as lead researcher Dr. John B. Kostis confessed, "You have the opportunity of dying from something else."

    Yes, that's right -- the "opportunity" to die of something other than heart disease.

    Listen, it would be one thing if the pill magically helped extend lives... but if you're simply trading one form of death for another AND risking drug side effects to boot, I'd say skip the pills.

    Hypertension is over-treated in the first place -- and even if you do need to bring your numbers down, you can do it without meds. Start by giving up sugar, and you really will live longer.

  3. Scary new plan to drug teens

    A new study opens the door for pumping kids full of blood pressure meds -- even if they're perfectly healthy and even if they don't actually have high blood pressure by any standard definition.
  4. Skyrocketing medical fraud

    If you're a fan of fiction, pick up some of the medical journals -- these things contain more fantasy than "Harry Potter." Fraud, incompetence, poor math, and drug advice so bad it may as well be a magical spell -- you name it, you'll find it in a "leading" medical journal right now… disguised as scientific research.
