Blood Pressure Havoc
Big Pharma, what a lot of “natural” practitioners call the pharmaceutical manufacturers has done it again. They are trying to convince the public they need the new “Ply Pill” which has a cholesterol lowering fragment, three blood pressure medications, and aspirin; five pills in one. I am not sure about you, but the pharmaceutical company tried to create a duo pill already to lower cholesterol which caused a lot of havoc.
The best way to lower your blood pressure is avoiding refined carbohydrates and using unrefined salt. You do not want to use refined salt, which raises your blood pressure. Carbohydrates, especially those pastries and cookies, increase insulin, causes retention of sodium. This means your body is holding onto water. Have you noticed people who eat a lot of carbohydrates appear to be waterlogged, and when they cut back on sweets, they lose a lot of water weight quickly?
Eating sweets will raise your blood pressure; scientists did research on mummies who ate the low fat, high carbohydrate diet, and found the mummies have scars on their blood vessels similar to high blood pressure findings. Lack of vitamin D affects calcium movement in the body. Calcium assists in relaxing blood vessels. I have also noticed blood pressure go down when some lose weight, but I also have seen thin people have blood pressure issues.
