High Blood Pressure

Definition of Blood Pressure: The pressure exerted by blood upon the walls of the arteries, depending upon the force of the heartbeat, the elasticity of the vessel walls, the resistance of the capillary network and the volume and viscosity of the blood.

Causes of High Blood Pressure: There are four main contributing factors to high blood pressure.   Three of these factors are physical the last and fourth is psychological.

1) Issues with high Cholesterol. There is a thickening of the blood from catarrhal and excess glutinous and fibrinous matters loading the circulatory system.

High Cholesterol can also contribute to a clogging of the bowel with putrid body waste, making it necessary to cleanse the excretory systems (Bowel Cleansing) in order to purify the blood.

High blood pressure in many cases works just like low blood pressure. Cholesterol must be eliminated from the system in order to get the blood flowing more freely.

2) A clogging of the body’s filtering system, the Kidneys. The kidneys filter all the blood, there is not bypass the blood must go through these filters.  The veins in the kidneys are about the width of a hair.  Any puss or sediment can cause the heart to have to pump hard to get the blood through the clogged filtering system.

3) Hardening of the Arteries. This is caused when calcium is leached form the walls of the arteries and veins.  Most people understand the body’s need for calcium and the loss caused to the bones but few understand the wealth of calcium which also exists within the walls of the veins and arteries.  When a need arises the body will also pull calcium from this area causing the arteries to become hard and less pliable. The result is a crimping and bending of the arteries instead of the ability to flow and move with the body.  The heart is now trying to push blood through a crimped straw.  Not an easy task.

The conditions mentioned above are brought about by improper diet, insufficient rest and exercise and a lack of vitality within the system.

4) The Fourth and final cause for High Blood pressure is Emotional Stress.  Stress can kill.  It is important to find ways to unplug and relax.

Herbal Aids:

Kelp: It is an arterial cleansing agent and gives tone to the walls of the blood vessels. It is helpful in some cases of arterial tension (high blood pressure). Practitioners believe that it helps to remove deposits from the walls of the arteries and restore their elasticity, thereby lengthening life. Sufferers from low blood pressure can also have this condition normalized with the use of Kelp.

Take Cayenne, working up to a teaspoon three times a day. This increases the power of the heart and corrects the circulation problems.

Garlic in copious amounts will bring down high blood pressure.

Dr. Shook’s, High Blood Pressure Formula: This formula used along with the foundational programs will greatly benefit those working to regulate their blood pressure.  This Formula is not a quick fix to force down the elevated blood pressure.  It is best to continue using whatever medication you are on until your body lets you know you won’t need it any longer.  It will normally take two to three months for the pressure to begin to come down.  When it does the numbers stay down showing there has been a complete clearing of the causes responsible for driving the Blood Pressure up.
