(NaturalNews) Elevated blood pressure exerts a health threatening effect on every organ in the body as it slowly acts to cause our veins and arteries to deteriorate. Small cracks develop as a result and must be patched quickly to avert disaster. In an attempt to ensure our survival, oxidized LDL cholesterol and calcium are used as a biological caulk to patch the damage and prevent us from bleeding to death. This mechanism will help to avoid immediate catastrophe but eventually our arteries will narrow and a deadly clot will form as a result. Mainstream medicine is quick to prescribe a low fat diet and drugs as a remedy, while natural diet and powerful nutrients provide a solution with no dangerous side effects.

Small Increase in Blood Pressure Doubles Risk of Heart Disease
Research demonstrates how critical tight control of blood pressure is to lowering cardiovascular risk. Heart disease doubles for every 20/10 mmHg increment over the optimal reading of 115/75 mmHg. This finding places millions of people who are in the pre-hypertensive classification at risk. The vast majority of people are unaware they have high blood pressure and natural methods to control the condition are virtually unknown in the medical profession.

Low Fat Diet and Drugs Perpetuate High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease
Patients diagnosed with coronary artery disease (CAD) are routinely prescribed a low fat, high carbohydrate diet and a cocktail of drugs including ACE inhibitors, beta blockers and diuretics to lower elevated blood pressure. The low fat diet eliminates potentially heart friendly Omega-3 and monounsaturated fats.

Pharmaceuticals may act to lower blood pressure but actually increase the risk of death. The result of a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association concludes that tight control of blood pressure by drugs is associated with an increase in risk of all-cause mortality. Clearly there must be a better solution to lower blood pressure and reduce risk of cardiovascular disease.

Nutritional Approach to Controlling Blood Pressure
The most potent strategy to reduce elevated blood pressure is through diet. Eating a diet along the lines of our evolutionary ancestors confers extraordinary protection from hypertension. Many people find that when they totally eliminate all the processed junk food and substitute with a diet of natural organic vegetables, nuts, seeds and grass fed meats, extra weight drops quickly and blood pressure normalizes with no further intervention. These dietary steps will help you to naturally lower your blood pressure:

Eliminate Processed Carbs, Wheat and Cornstarch: Cut all sources of sugar, refined carbs, wheat, breads, pasta and starch in your diet. Research has shown that this approach can drop blood pressure by 20 to 40 mmHg quickly, can lower triglycerides and oxidized LDL cholesterol and can improve helpful HDL cholesterol.

No Trans or Hydrogenated Fats: Cut all vegetable shortening, margarine and baked foods that are loaded with synthetically derived fats. Substitute heart healthy Omega-3 fats from fish and supplements and be careful not to overcook or fry foods with oil as this causes deadly trans fats to form.

Natural Supplements Improve Blood Pressure: In addition to Omega-3 DHA and EPA fats, Vitamin D has been shown to reduce blood pressure in the same manner seen with ACE inhibitors. Coenzyme Q10 is known to reduce heart muscle thickening and can lower blood pressure by 8 to 16 mmHg.

High blood pressure can be controlled by natural diet and targeted supplements. Avoid all synthetically processed foods and pharmaceuticals to live a long and disease free life.
