I thought the Cold War ended 25 years ago!
But we’re surrounded by tight-lipped spies EVERYWHERE – and lots of them are wearing white coats and stethoscopes.
If you have high blood pressure, you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about.
I bet your doctor has NEVER given you a good reason why your blood pressure is high – they just spout some mumbo-jumbo about “essential hypertension.”
Or ask a typical doc why your blood pressure meds don’t work… and why you have to take two or three… and he’ll just shrug his shoulders.
Ever wonder what these docs AREN’T telling you?
The truth is, they know PRECISELY why your blood pressure is high.
It’s one of the dirtiest secrets in medicine. But today I’m peeling back the curtain – and I’ll show you the ONE simple thing that can bring your blood pressure down for good.
The pill carousel
Here’s what most patients like you are NEVER told.
There’s a good chance that your blood pressure is high because of all the OTHER drugs your doctor has you on!
Case in point? The drugs that are ALL known to send your blood pressure sky high include:
- NSAIDs, like ibuprofen
- migraine meds
- …and more.
These are some of the most widely used – and prescribed – medicines around.
And if you keep taking THOSE drugs, no amount of blood pressure meds in the world will be able to bring your numbers under control.
Of course, most docs are too busy covering their butts to admit that the drugs they GAVE you are spiking your blood pressure.
They’ll just keep giving you MORE drugs.
And, boy, oh, boy, it’s about to get A LOT worse.
Now, there’s a new push to put blood pressure patients on ANOTHER dangerous drug.
The pitch is that cholesterol deposits will narrow your arteries, make your heart work harder, and increase your blood pressure.
So cholesterol-lowering statins to the rescue, right? Not exactly…
First, your lipid panel won’t tell you if your LDL is collecting into plaques on the walls of your arteries – or just floating around in your blood (which is NOTHING to worry about).
And if your LDL hasn’t formed those plaques, bringing the levels down won’t TOUCH your blood pressure readings.
And studies have shown that statins don’t add a single day to your life.
If they really had such a positive effect on blood pressure, wouldn’t the MILLIONS of people taking statins be living longer?
Well, they’re not.
The secret to lowering your blood pressure isn’t to take MORE drugs… it’s to take FEWER drugs.
It’s time to have a frank chat with your doc about whether your current medications are causing the problem (or get a second opinion).
And while you may not be able to get yourself completely off the pill merry-go-round, ditching even just one prescription may get you off blood pressure meds entirely.
