There is nothing normal about a blood pressure that is too high. This is one of your body’s warning signs that something is wrong. If uncorrected, the damage to your heart and brain greatly increases your risk of a heart attack or stroke.
Medications are usually thought of as the answer, but recent research suggests that blood pressure medications do nothing to protect your heart and brain. Worse, some blood pressure medications actually increase your risk of a stroke—the very thing you are trying to protect.
I have been publishing posts related to blood pressure for many years. This book is a compilation of blog posts done over the years in an organized format with some additional commentary to help make the information clearer.
Many of the topics discussed in this book may be new to you and may never have been brought up by your personal physician. Unfortunately, there is a veritable chasm between the medical research and what primary care doctors and cardiologists seem to share with their patients. The “standard” recommendations are usually decades behind the research I will be sharing with you. This is why every single comment is backed up by supporting medical research.
Each topic has a link back to the website so that you can read the original medical article that the post was centered around. I have provided links in the resource section, if you want to do more research for yourself or are looking for products that will help you on your journey to better health.
It is my hope that the concepts and ideas given in this book are going to help your understanding of your condition as well as help in improving your health as it relates to preventing and managing high blood pressure. There are many tools that can positively impact the health of your cardiovascular system.
I’m also introducing tools, called “Dr. Bogash's Recommendations,” which will give you three things you can do right away to improve your heart and blood vessel health.
In this book, you are going to learn:
1) Why we suffer from high blood pressure.
2) Why using medications to manage blood pressure can actually worsen your health.
3) Supplements and lifestyle changes that can reduce blood pressure.
4) How blood pressure links with other diseases like migraines, stroke, heart disease and diabetes.
