Age-Related High Blood Pressure? “Beet”​ It!
If you or someone you know or care for has been diagosed with high blood pressure, and have been told it is a normal result of aging, this content is for you. At this point, you are like I was when my father was diagnosed with high blood pressure as he aged at the age of 55; you are at a crossroads, with an important decision to make in regards to the person’s health, and you need to be empowered to make a smart choice relative to that for someone you really care about. Quite frankly, it’s scary. You most likely at this point have two common options:

  1. Take the medication that has been perscribed by your primary care doctor.
  1. Explore some sort of alterantive route first before resulting to taking a medication.

If you’re one of those that the idea of you first resulting to a medication such as Bystolic, and other beta-blocker, and ACE inhibitors that you have been told, or read, have side effects including frequent urination, narcolepsy (sleep walking), weight gain, numbness, and tingling, fatigue, insomnia, or more, leaves you feeling way more comfortable living in the realm of option two to start off with, then you’re on to something here. If the idea of you having to be on this medication for the rest of your life, has you at an unrest; give this route a try first.

According to WebMD along with several recent articles by Men’s Journal magazine, drinking 8 ounces of beet juice a day, has been shown to be effective in lowering blood pressure by as much as 10 points, in both systolic, and diastolic blood pressure. Because beets are very rich in nitric oxide, the juice from beets have vasodilative properties, which means it allows for blood vessels to expand, resulting in a lower pressure naturally. Most sites will tell you that consistent exercise, less salt intake, stress-relief meditation, nutritional changes will also result in lower blood pressure, and they will! However, this one is one not many know about, as well conservative nervous system management through chiropractic care. All of these aforementioned things, can be a blue print to evading the relationship with blood pressure medications all naturally. Give it a whirl, and see if it might help out!
