Better than Blood Pressure Drugs?
Blood pressure is a hot button topic for me…. because it’s just ANOTHER thing that mainstream medicine gets ALL WRONG.
I agree that high blood pressure is a major factor in the risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke.
Where I disagree is in how to treat it.
Most doctors do what they’ve been trained to do… write a prescription and send you on your way with a vague suggestion of “eating better and exercising.”
And then they wonder why your blood pressure stays high… and heart disease remains the country’s top killer.
But there’s a better, drug-free solution to lowering your blood pressure.
Plus, you can get started TODAY!
It’s something “everyone knows” – physical activity is good for your blood pressure.
But did you know that not a single study has been conducted to see if it’s more effective than blood pressure drugs?
It’s no wonder. If something as simple as exercise was more effective than drugs, that would put a big dent in Big Pharma’s profits.
Well, some researchers finally decided to put exercise tothe test… and their findings could change how doctors treat high blood pressure.
For their study, researchers from all over the U.S. and Europe joined together to analyze data from previous studies on either exercise or blood pressure drugs.
All told, the study included 391 clinical trials involving nearly 40,000 people.
Together, these studies revealed that in people with high blood pressure, exercise was just as effective as blood-pressure-lowering drugs.
Of course, despite these overwhelming findings, the researchers cautioned that you should not stop taking BP drugs in favor of exercise.
Why on earth not?
The goal is healthy blood pressure, which lowers your risk of heart attack and stroke. If you can accomplish that without drugs, why wouldn’t you do it?
Your guess is as good as mine.
However, before stopping your medication cold turkey, be sure to talk to your doctor first, since stopping these drugs abruptly can cause problems.
To a brighter day,

When it comes to surviving cancer, the earlier you discover cancer, the better the prognosis. That’s why cancer screening tests are so important.
