My first time trying a list of blood pressure pills was a slow process. I didn’t know what to look for, or how to gauge what worked and what didn’t. But I did find out that a couple of brands on my list of blood pressure pills were going to be very helpful. One of them improved my readings by more than I had ever seen before, and I felt much healthier while taking it. The next time I switched brands, I went through my list again, selecting only the most-helpful ones.
So this time, when I went to check my blood pressure, I picked up a bottle of Zest for Her. I found one that matched my lifestyle, and that I felt could help me lower my numbers. I asked my doctor about it; he told me it was a safe high-quality product with all the ingredients you need. He pointed out a few things in the Zest for Her that were related to my health and he recommended a lower dose. I took that dose, and now I’m seeing better numbers than I have at any other time.
My next big list of blood pressure cures was called High Blood Pressure Relief. I looked over the ingredients and decided that this brand was definitely worth trying. The first ingredient was ginkgo biloba, which is supposed to increase your body’s efficiency at handling lactic acid. After that came a whole bunch of other herbs, minerals, and antioxidants. I was amazed by how well High Blood Pressure Relief worked and was surprised by the huge difference in my readings!
I wanted to tell you that story today, but then I remembered about the fact I was on a low-salt diet, and high blood pressure medications can actually interfere with that. So I didn’t. Instead I want to give you some more of the reasons that high blood pressure medication can kill you! Did you know that taking the hypertension medicine beta-blockers can actually lower your heart rate? By increasing the pressure on your arteries, it can cause your heart to work harder, which increases your risk of heart attack or stroke. And of course, once you’ve been diagnosed with high blood pressure, you’re not allowed to take those kinds of medications any longer anyway!
Another thing I learned was that all those pills that claim to lower your blood pressure only treat the symptoms, and not the cause! To be clear, those pills are very effective at relieving the symptoms of high blood pressure, but they don’t treat the problem! This is why there are so many more effective, high blood pressure treatments. These other medications to treat the cause of high blood pressure, not just the symptoms.
One of these new medications is called atenolol. This new medication was developed by a health care company in New Zealand to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and it targets the cause of high blood pressure. It has been shown to relieve symptoms such as cough and shortness of breath, along with increasing the heart rate. Because it acts like a natural diuretic, it also lowers uric acid levels.
And of course, another great high blood pressure treatment is called prilosec. This prescription medicine was created by a company in Canada, and it acts in much the same way as beta-blockers and aneurysm blockers, in that it stops blood vessels from enlarging. The difference between the two is that it does not act to reduce blood pressure. Rather, it relieves the symptoms of high blood pressure. Many people believe prilosec to be better for treating their hypertension than the aforementioned high blood pressure tablets.
In addition, there are natural herbs that have been known to lower high blood pressure. One of these is the Hawthorne berry, which has been shown to improve lung function and increase oxygenation in the blood. Another is garlic, which has a strong anti-inflammatory effect, but is also reported to have some diuretic effects as well.
