Exposed! Big Pharma’s New Blood Pressure Trick
A new study claims researchers may have found the “magic bullet” for treating high blood pressure.
Yeah, maybe if you’re using that bullet to kill someone!
This new drug is the combination of four (mostly ineffective) drugs into one (potentially harmful) “superpill.”
As if ONE of these pills wasn’t enough to ruin your health—now you get to take four at once!
Researchers are claiming that when this quadpill comes to the market, it could be the miracle cure we’ve been waiting for. But don’t be fooled by the smoke and lights – smoke and mirrors is more like it.
This is nothing more than a desperate grasp at squeezing profits out of off-patent drugs.
That’s right, the four drugs in this new pill – irbesartan, amlodipine, hydrochlorothiazide, and atenolol – are all generic drugs that have come off-patent. Which means their value has plummeted.
But combine the four of them into a new, patentable pill? Cha-ching!
The sad reality is that only about 33 percent of those taking blood pressure drugs have their readings under control (according to a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association).
But do you know what’s even worse? A closer look at the studies shows that taking blood pressure drugs doesn’t reduce heart attacks or help you live longer.
Who cares if your blood pressure is lower if you’re going to die of a heart attack anyway?
I’m not saying high blood pressure isn’t a problem. Without a doubt, high blood pressure is a ticking time bomb that can undermine your health.
What I am saying is that taking blood pressure meds is not the answer.
Here’s my advice. Before you even think about taking steps to lower your blood pressure, the first step is to make sure your pressure is actually high. It’s not unusual to get an artificially high reading in your doctor’s office.
If this sounds like you, spend $20-30 on a home blood pressure monitor and keep a diary of blood pressures at various times. I’ve lost track of the number of times a high in-office reading miraculously drops once the patient tests at home.
But if, after all this, your blood pressure is still high, I still wouldn’t recommend a blood pressure drug!
Remember, high blood pressure is a symptom, not a disease. Artificially lowering it by taking drugs might make your numbers look good, but it won’t make you live longer because it hasn’t addressed the root cause.
The most common underlying causes are surprisingly simple—poor nutrition, toxicity, lack of physical exercise, stress, and cellular dysfunction.
And this means that the solutions are often equally simple: Nutrition, weight loss, herbs, vitamins, stress reduction, exercise, and minerals.
Even a simple mineral like magnesium has been shown to lower blood pressure — without any of the risks that come with prescription drugs.
Now that’s my version of a magic bullet.
To a brighter day,
