New Blood Pressure Guidelines Are a TOTAL CROCK
It’s Big Pharma’s latest get-rich-quick scheme…
And it could end up ruining your life.
The drug industry’s two favorite puppets… the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology… have just issued new guidelines for what defines high blood pressure.
And you know what comes next, right?
Millions of healthy Americans are going to get forced onto blood pressure meds they don’t need.
I don’t want you to be one of them.
Here’s everything you need to know to steer clear of this scam.
Literally overnight, the number of Americans with high blood pressure has skyrocketed from 72 million to 103 million.
It’s not because their healthy has suddenly taken a turn for the worse; it’s because a group of people sitting in a conference room decided to change the definition of high blood pressure.
Under the previous guidelines, high blood pressure was defined as 140/90. Under the new guidelines, elevated blood pressure is now defined as 120-129/80.
But these new guidelines won’t change the actual health status of a single person.
What they WILL do is add millions of eligible customers for Big Pharma’s blood pressure drugs.
And it’s a total crock.
I can’t imagine how much wasted money goes into making up the guidelines to encourage drugs—or the marketing that goes into selling them.
But I can tell you that blood pressure medicine is one drug you don’t need to waste YOUR money on.
Other than making drug company execs rich, these meds don’t do much. A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that only about 33 percent of those taking blood pressure drugs have their readings under control.
What’s worse, studies show that taking blood pressure drugs doesn’t reduce heart attacks or help you live longer.
I’m not saying high blood pressure isn’t a problem. Other than smoking, high blood pressure is the leading PREVENTABLE cause of heart attacks and strokes.
Good blood pressure should be below 120/80—like mine is.
But the reason it goes up is NEVER due to a drug deficiency.
Remember, high blood pressure is a symptom, not a disease. It is the normal reaction of our body to a lack of energy in your system. 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: Eat more whole foods (especially seafood), get plenty of morning sunlight, avoid fake light at night, and stay away from electromagnetic fields.
Even a simple mineral like magnesium has been shown to lower blood pressure—without any of the risks that come with prescription drugs.
