Natural, Non-Toxic Approaches to Treating Hypertension By D. Carestia – Part 2

Here is Part 2 of D. Carestia’s blog post. Part 1 can be found here.

This has lead me to post on the Intercure blog on occasion about natural, non-toxic methods of lowering high blood pressure. Perhaps you have seen my posts on various topics/questions in the past. Over the last 6 years I read books, studied articles, read voraciously on line, tried many, many different supplements, foods, therapies, relaxation techniques, exercises, and essentially learned a lot about hypertension and natural treatments for hypertension. More importantly, after two years of research, study, discipline, and trial and error of almost everything I read, I was finally able to get off the drugs and keep my blood pressure consistently within the 120’s over 70’s ranges, and this was accomplished through entirely natural, non-toxic methods. It wasn’t easy, and one of the most difficult things was actually weaning off the physical drug dependency, but I did it!

I am not a doctor. I do not give medical advice. I am more than happy
to debate doctors on these subjects however, and I freely discuss them with anyone who is interested. With all due respect for the AMA’s vast knowledge of scalpels and pills, medical doctors by and large are simply not very knowledgeable of natural treatments, foods, supplements, and therapies outside the realm of drug companies like Pfizer and Merck who largely “educate” them once they are out of medical school and in practice.

The one thing that has hit home the hardest about hypertension throughout all my studies is that its causes are multifactorial. What works for one person, may not work for another, and this is largely a function of the underlying cause of each person’s hypertension. Rather than discover that cause and treat it, the medical profession tends to treat the symptom, and they do it with drugs – drugs that I submit are toxic in nature to the human body and which lead to a variety of negative side effects.

Let’s look at just one illustration. Just for fun, and to better understand only one drug’s, atenolol’s, side effects on people like you and me, check out this link to, and read the over 150 patient comments.

There are many more sites just like this one filled with patient comments about dismal negative side effects on every blood pressure drug on the market. Wouldn’t it be great if you could control hypertension without the downsides of drugs or at least reduce your dependence on them? Maybe you can. The different approaches, therapies, and methods for potentially doing just that are what we will discuss in this blog. I am hopeful that you will find a natural, non-toxic answer to lowering your high blood pressure like I did. Hopefully, your doctor will be supportive of your efforts, but unfortunately, that is too rarely the case. My doctor was not at all supportive, saying “you may not be able to get off the medications”. He was being diplomatic and subtle in putting it that way. In later years, however, he came to ask, “How did you do that”? That question, and my own blood pressure, well controlled naturally, were my best rewards.

In future installments, we will begin talking specifics about foods, exercises, supplements, therapies, raw juicing, fasting, chelation, hormone therapy, EECP, relaxation techniques, and much more. And again, it is my greatest hope and wish that you will find something helpful to you in our discussions!

Until then………all the best………naturally!
