If your doctor says your blood pressure is high and prescribed medications to lower it, I may have good news for you. Your blood pressure may not be high. That’s what researchers at the University of Minnesota found in a recent study.
These researchers took a close look at blood pressure levels in more than 20,000 people over a period of 20 years. They concluded that today’s standard for high blood pressure may, in fact, be normal. It all depends on your age and whether or not your blood pressure levels are likely to lead to death.
If their conclusions are correct, you may not need drugs to lower your blood pressure.
Conventional medicine currently considers anything below 120/80 as normal. But these researchers found that these numbers may not be normal. They discovered that your age causes blood pressure readings to have a different effect on your mortality. Here’s what they discovered:
People over 50 with a systolic blood pressure (the high number) over 140 were likely to die prematurely no matter what their diastolic pressure (the low number). But systolic pressure didn’t affect mortality in people younger than 50. Diastolic pressure did, but only when it exceeded 100. If your blood pressure is no more than 140/100, these researchers say it’s the new normal.

That means you may not need your blood pressure medication. However, if you’re on any blood pressure medication, don’t just stop taking it. Discuss it with your doctor and show him or her this alert. Consider taking a heart-strengthening formula like Circutol from Advanced Bionutritionals. It not only normalizes blood pressure, it frequently eliminates irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias). It worked for me. I had disturbing rhythms for over two years. After taking Circutol, they stopped completely.
Have your doctor monitor your blood pressure with Circutol. As it comes down, ask your doctor to reduce your medications gradually under supervision.
