What Causes High Blood Pressure And How To Fix It

Episode 625 19m


High blood pressure—medically known as hypertension—affects about 30 percent of adults. Left neglected, it can severely damage your quality of life and set the stage for heart disease, kidney complications, or a stroke. Conventional medicine typically treats hypertension with medications that are generally effective in reducing the risk of these complications.

These medications frequently come with unintended side effects, however. The good news is the right foods and nutrients can dramatically lower blood pressure without the high costs and side effects of medications.
