Cause Over Symptoms
The trouble with the medical system today is to prescribe an artificial answer to treat symptoms. The goal should be to remove the cause. Medication is artificially lowering your blood pressure which blocks your body’s ability to heal itself. These cause other health issues over time, such as migraines or erectile dysfunction, and medication is added or increased. Once you’re taking many medications, it eventually leads your body to a heart attack.
Medications also deplete nutrients from your body. Diuretics may flush your body out, but they also flush out vital minerals such as magnesium and potassium.When you have low levels of magnesium and potassium, your blood pressure goes up. Low levels also increase heart risks which can easily lead to a heart attack over time. This will keep you in a vicious cycle of increasing your medication due to your body being dependent on something artificial to keep levels down. The following supplements, joined with good exercise and healthy eating habits, will drastically change the health of your heart.
5 Natural Ways to Lower Blood Pressure

Beet powder is incredible for your arteries and blood pressure. You can buy a powder form or juice beets on a regular basis.

This herb is one of the best ways to lower blood pressure naturally. In addition to high blood pressure, it is known to help digestive issues and diabetes.
High blood pressure can be paired with clogged or weakened vessels. Taking L-arginine is great to strengthen your those vessels so your body can naturally lower your rate.
Bonus Tip: Chiropractic Care
You may be thinking, “how does blood pressure link to chiropractic care?” The answer is found in your parasympathetic system. This system is in your upper neck which controls your hormones, heart beat, and blood pressure. When this system is shut down or blocked, it can increase your blood pressure. PubMed released a study showing one adjustment was stronger than two medications combined. An adjustment can eliminate irritation, correct bone movement, and relieve pressure. Adjustments, paired with exercises and retraining muscles, will drastically change your heart health. Ask our office today for additional chiropractic ways to decrease blood pressure.
