Blood Pressure
Blood Pressure problems can be caused by Dehydration (lack of water), Mineral Deficiencies, Toxic Metals,
Calcium mal-absorption and Kidney impairment.

Ordering a Nutritional
Hair Mineral Analysis may identify several possible causes of your Blood Pressure problems.
-- Stress & Anger may result in fast oxidation rate or a high or low Sodium/potassium ratio.
-- Arteriosclerosis may be the result of High Calcium levels or calcification of the arteries
-- Atherosclerosis may be the result of Copper Toxicity, Zinc Deficiency or Toxic Metals causing the     
arteries to become inflamed and brittle
-- Kidney impairment may be the result of congestion, kidney stones, Calcium mal-absorption, a low or
very high Sodium/Potassium ratio.

Blood Pressure medications can deplete these Vitamins & Minerals from your body, Vitamins B1, B6, C,
Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium, Zinc, Sodium and Coenzyme Q10.

Most Hypertensive people are deficient in minerals such as calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, etc in their
diet. A
Hair Mineral Analysis can help you determine if you have Nutritional Deficiencies and or Toxic Metals.

                       Many people have high blood pressure and don't know it.

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE IS NOT A DISEASE. It is a symptom of a poor diet and lifestyle, that if not changed, can lead
to arteriosclerosis,
heart disease, heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, etc.

Normal Blood Pressure is 120/80. 120 is your Systolic pressure and the 80 is your Diastolic pressure.

Hypertension is the medical term for high blood pressure. It is known as the
"silent killer" since it has no initial symptoms, but can lead to long-
term disease and complications.

What is White Coat Syndrome? It is a term used to describe a person's increase in Blood Pressure only when they are in the Doctors
office. Fear of BAD NEWS caused their BP to rise. Many doctors will immediately prescribe medication without considering White Coat
Syndrome. Don't let that happen to you. Know your average Blood Pressure readings.

Knowing your Blood Pressure is important to your over all health. If you don't have a Blood pressure cuff, get one and start monitoring your BP
(blood pressure), first thing in the morning, 10AM and 3PM.

Your baseline BP, after sitting for about 3-4 minutes, should include doing the pressure on the Right Arm first and then the Left Arm. I suggest
doing the blood pressure twice on each arm to make sure they are comparable. While the cuff is on the left Arm, stand and immediately do the
blood pressure again. This is your standing Blood Pressure and the Systolic pressure should be higher than your sitting pressure.

If your standing pressure stays the same or is lower, then your Adrenal glands may be weak.

Important complications of uncontrolled or poorly treated high blood pressure include heart attack, congestive
heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, peripheral artery disease, and aortic aneurysms (weakening of the wall of the
aorta, leading to widening or ballooning of the aorta).

A diet high in fructose, a form of sugar found in sweetened soft drinks and junk food, raises blood pressure in men & women.
Two recent studies provided the first evidence that fructose helps raise blood pressure. One study further suggested that people who
consume junk foods and sweetened soft drinks at night could gain weight faster than those who don't.
Fructose accounts for about half the sugar molecules in table sugar and in high-fructose corn syrup, the sweetener used in many packaged

Follow the instructions below to take your Blood Pressure.

Blood Pressure readings: While lying down or sitting, take your Blood Pressure twice on the right arm first and
record the results.. Next, do your Blood Pressure on the left arm twice and record your readings. Next, while the
Blood Pressure cuff is on the left arm, stand and immediately take your Blood Pressure and record your readings.

The Blood Pressure readings should be similar on both right & left arm. When you stand, the Blood Pressure
should rise about 10 points according to Medical Doctors who study Functional Endocrinology. The Pressure
should be 120/80 on both sides. If there is substantial difference between the Systolic (high number) pressure
from right to left, contact your Medical Doctor.

If both Right & Left Systolic Pressures are altered - Possible Gonads problems

If both Right & Left Diastolic Pressures are altered - Possible Adrenal problems

If Right Systolic & Left Diastolic Pressures are altered - Possible Thymus problems

If both Right & Left Systolic & Diastolic Pressures are altered - Possible Neurotransmitter problems

If Right Diastolic Pressure is altered - Possible Thyroid problems

If Left Diastolic Pressure is altered - Possible Pancreas problems

If Right Diastolic & Left Systolic Pressures are altered - possible Spleen problems

If both Left Systolic & Diastolic Pressures are altered - Possible Anterior Pituitary problems

You should contact your Medical Doctor if any of your Pressures are altered.

Some causes of High Blood Pressure
  • Stress
  • Dehydration
  • Smoking
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Too much sugar & salt in your diet
  • Too much alcohol consumption (more than 1 to 2 drinks per day)
  • Older age
  • Genetics
  • Family history of high blood pressure
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Adrenal and thyroid disorders

Who Is More Likely to Develop High Blood Pressure?
  • People with family members who have high blood pressure.
  • People who smoke.
  • African-Americans.
  • Women who are pregnant.
  • Women who take birth control pills
  • People over the age of 35
  • People who are overweight or obese
  • People who are not active
  • People who drink alcohol excessively
  • People who eat too many fatty foods or foods with too much salt

Some suggestions to lower blood pressure
Eat more fruits and vegetables and some red meat. Eat more beans, rice and fish. Raw oats, those soaked in soy milk, have been known to
drop pressure. Try a cupful each morning. Rinse your oats off with water and then pour over some soy milk, let soak a few minutes and then

Drink half your body weight in ounces of water a day. Add fresh squeezed lemon juice to your water.

Celery, parsley, and grapefruit juice have been reported to lower blood pressure.

EGGPLANT JUICE TO LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE: Take a medium size raw eggplant, chop it into 1" squares, and place it in a one gallon jug of
pure water. Soak in refrigerator for 5 days, draw (strain) it off, and keep refrigerated. Take one tablespoon twice daily on an empty stomach.
Check blood pressure several times a week.

If one or both systolic numbers drop in value, this is orthostatic failure.

Orthostatic failure can result from:
•        Parasympathetic stress
•        Electrolyte insufficiency
•        Adrenal insufficiency
•        Cardiac insufficiency
•        Renal - Endocrine insufficiency

High Systolic greater than 125,can result from:
•        Posterior pituitary stress
•        Hyperparathyroidism
•        Renal stress
•        Sympathetic stress
•        Cardiac stress

Low Systolic less than 115, can result from:
•        Electrolyte imbalance
•        Estrogenic stress
•        Testosterone insufficiency
•        Progesterone insufficiency
•        Kidney - Endocrine insufficiency

High Diastolic greater than 85, can result from:
•        Posterior pituitary stress
•        Hyperparathyroidism
•        Renal stress
•        Sympathetic stress
•        Cardiac stress

Low Diastolic below 75, can  result from:
•        Electrolyte imbalance
•        Estrogenic stress
•        Testosterone insufficiency
•        Progesterone insufficiency
•        Kidney - Endocrine insufficiency
