Daily Blood Pressure Medications…Or?

Blood Pressure Medications
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

As I begin writing this article, please know how important it is for you to apprise your doctor and get his/her approval of any lifestyle changes (taking of medications, exercise, diet, etc….) you’d like to consider.  OK?  Let’s go!

The Journal of Hypertension (1) studied exercise as a means of widening human blood vessels.  This, or course, is what Beta-Blocking Blood Pressure medications do without exercise.  The article concluded with these words; “These findings suggest that acute moderate-intensity exercise induces vasodilation through an increase in NO bioavailability in humans.”  NO is nitric oxide.  Now, let’s overlay this study with a new study expounded upon (2). The headline might shock you;

Beta blockers may be doing more harm than good for heart attack patients.

The Swedish study is requesting larger studies to confirm what their study found: Beta blockers do not improve survival chances for those who have not experienced heart failure.

Does your brain go to where mine does when reading this blog?  I know how easy it is to swallow a pill to control (adjust) a normal body function like blood pressure.  But the first thing we learned in biology or anatomy class was that our body was made to move!  Most of us don’t!  We go from bed, to computer, to the mailbox, to the remote control to bed!  WHAM!

In my plight to avoid doctor visits and medications, I have opted to eat differently than most, to supplement with what I feel are life and immune enhancing supplements and to exercise.

The point is, science tell us that we have options, yet our doctors do not.  I know they are busy people, so the “educational onus” is directly on you!   Talk to your doctor if you might be considering a change!
