High Blood Pressure: A Symptom, Not a Disease
Although most people believe that hypertension is a natural consequence of aging, hypertension is actually the consequence from years of consuming a diet rich in saturated animal products, oils, refined sugars, processed foods, and salt. These foods play a major role in promoting diseased arteries.
High blood pressure is not a disease, but a symptom of these diseased arteries. As cholesterol containing plaques begin to line the walls of the arteries, the arteries begin to narrow, stiffen, and lose their elasticity which causes a rise in pressure. Medications artificially treat the symptoms which gives the patient a false sense of security while their disease progresses. By switching to a Starch-Smart® diet, you will be giving your body a chance to heal the arteries, and reverse the disease.
I would like to encourage you to watch the following video by Dr. John McDougall in which he does an excellent job of explaining why we should look at hypertension as a symptom and not as a disease itself. And, while you are at it, why not share this page, and this potentially life saving information, with a friend?
If you are interested in more information about how to achieve optimal blood pressure please watch the trailer below for my video Best Blood Pressure Plan which is available at a DVD or as Streaming Media from my online store at Veggievore.com.
