The only thing more dangerous than high blood pressure is using blood pressure medications to lower it. Here’s why…
It’s a well-known fact that hypertension medications cause serious side effects. Even the medical companies have to admit to that. But to defend themselves, they say: “No efficacy without side effects”.
Some of the serious side effects include (but are not limited to) dizziness, headache, fatigue, depression, throbbing of the heart, lack of energy, lack of concentration, impotency, frigidity and more.
What’s worse, these medications give rise to the feeling of “false security”
It’s like wearing a safety helmet with an unnoticeable crack in it. You take more risk because you trust the helmet. But when something hits you in the head and the helmet breaks and your head along with it.
Because hypertension medications neither cure hypertension nor protect you from sudden fatal cardiovascular events – such as heart attack, stroke, embolism, kidney failure and other conditions that are directly caused by high blood pressure. It often doesn’t even work to normalize the blood pressure itself.
Fifty percent of the modern populations die from these diseases. Mortality is even slightly higher among people who are on medications. So people are put on medications for the rest of their life, thinking they’ll be safe, but then the safety-device doesn’t work and fatal accident happens. Horrifying, isn’t it?
The reason the medications don’t work is because they don’t take on the underlying cause of hypertension: Stress and wrong diet.
Living standards have never been so high as they are in the western world today. It has never been so easy to live a good life. We have plenty to eat and nice clothes and shelters. In many ways, we’ve safer than ever. But never before have worries and stress plagued us so much.
The normal person has worrying thoughts running through his/her mind 24/7. People in that state have tension in their mind and tension in their body. They cannot sleep and they cannot relax. This builds up emotional tension, which again causes hypertension.
You need a break!
Your mind needs a few minutes focused break every day. And watching TV doesn’t cut it. It actually makes it worse. You absolutely do need to give your body and mind a few minutes break from all tension and all worries every single day.
Half of the western world’s population die from conditions where hypertension plays a key role. A Focused break could have saved many of those people.
