So what is high blood pressure? So many people today have been made to believe that blood pressure is something that should remain constant. They scare you with high cholesterol, risk of stroke and even death! The reality is that blood pressure is a very dynamic (ever changing) number that SHOULD be higher in certain circumstances. Do you think an olympic weight-lifter should have the same blood pressure as a teenage girl? Of course not! Your body knows when more oxygen is required and will increase blood pressure accordingly to fill that need. The Western diet, full of fat, processed foods and neurotoxins, damages the circulatory system which can make it work harder than necessary. Heart rate is controlled by the central nervous system and must be operating at 100% in order to have optimal health. I have listed some of the most frequently asked questions below to ease your mind about the “perfect” blood pressure of 120/80. Educate yourself before you blindly take a recommended prescription to lower blood pressure.
What is considered high blood pressure?
It really depends on the country you are in. America has a very narrow range. They have normal blood pressure, low blood pressure, pre-hypertension and hypertension. The numbers are different in India and Europe. Blood Pressure is designed to fluctuate depending on a person’s physiology.
Are blood pressure meds safe?
No they are not. To chemically alter physiology is a violation of biologic law.
How do I take my blood pressure at home?
To have the most accurate blood pressure reading you need to take 10 minutes. Deep breathe (in through the nose out through the mouth) with the left arm raised to a point (and supported by the back of a chair) level with the heart. This will change your physiology and therefore give you a consistent reading every time.
Is salt really that bad for me?
No. Salt is actually really good for you, especially mineralized salt. It can actually lower blood pressure and help relieve joint pain.
Is there a natural way to lower blood pressure?
Yes, breathing and water. Proper nutrition, hydration and respiration will give you healthy blood which leads to healthy blood pressure. See our free video by filling out the form below.

I get dizzy when I stand up sometimes. Is that from my blood pressure?
There are three things that effect balance. The eyeball on the horizon called the vestibulo-ocular system, information coming up the dorsal columns of the spinal cord and the cerebellum. If you go from sitting to rising and feel dizzy then it could be a nervous system issue because blood pressure is suppose to increase in that situation.
