Blood pressure can slowly creep up as we get older, which can lead to artery damage and other dangerous conditions. The latest studies this month reveal that 50% of Americans have high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. That's astonishing! Now a reading of 130/80 is considered borderline high. Did you know that high blood pressure greatly increases the risk of developing life-threatening conditions such as heart attack, stroke, anuerysm, and kidney disease.

One of my favoirte natural remedies for high blood pressue is MOLECULAR HYDROGEN Tablets and Inhaler. Medicines are effective but come with harsh side effects. Molecular Hydrogen H2 has been shown to normalize blood pressure and dramatically suppress associated inflammation. In a 2013 six-month study, subjects with high blood pressure were given regular hydrogen therapy, and the results were amazing. Not only did their blood pressures generally decrease, some were back down to normal levels. (1) The scientists believe these results were due to hydrogen’s anti-inflammatory properties, which by default can lower white blood cell activity. And by decreasing blood pressure, hydrogen is also protecting against pulmonary hypertension. (2) It’s a win-win!

1. Susan, before we get into your natural remedies to help lower blood pressure, what is blood pressure and what are some of the risk factors?

Blood pressure (BP) is the pressure of circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels. And it usually refers to the pressure in large arteries of the systemic circulation. Blood pressure is usually expressed in terms of the systolic pressure (maximum during one heart beat) over diastolic pressure (minimum in between two heart beats), and is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg). Normal resting blood pressure in an adult is approximately 120 millimeters of mercury for systolic, and 80 millimeters of mercury for diastolic, abbreviated "120/80 mmHg", and lately it has been revised down to 115/75. We should all know our numbers.

Risk factors for hypertension include physical inactivity, obesity, tobacco use, stress, and poor diet. Yet, conventionally trained doctors usually only offer a host of medications to control high blood pressure featuring serious side effects, which include weakness, headaches, swelling, flushing, and breathing difficulties.

2. Okay, are there safer ways to lower blood pressure? I did see on your website that you recommended Infrared Saunas and Alkaline Water to help with hypertension. Please explain.

Blood pressure can often be lowered with lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, stress management and – most importantly – nutrition. You are the one who decides what you eat. No one, we hope, shoves the food into your mouth. With a few simple additions and tweaks in your diet, and changes in your lifestyle, you can see a profound difference in your blood pressure levels. The foods I’ll recommend can help you dramatically reduce your blood pressure – naturally. In fact, when used properly, they can equal the effects of blood pressure-lowering drugs. (Of course, you should never stop your prescribed medication without first discussing it with your doctor.)

Infrared Sauna:
And yes, sitting in an Infrared Sauna will help lower blood pressure and soothe achy muscles, without a pharmaceutical assist: You don’t have to sit in an infrared sauna for hours on end to reap the benefits. For most people, all that’s needed is a few 15-20 minute sessions a week. During your sauna, as you sweat, you’ll be stimulating better blood flow and circulation throughout your body. That increased circulation will help lower blood pressure, and make you feel good all over, relaxing tight muscles and easing minor aches and pains to boot. If you’re troubled by muscle or joint pain, or more chronic conditions like arthritis, infrared heat from the sauna can provide drug-free pain relief, reducing stiffness and inflammation. In addition, it has also been shown to improve the functioning of the endothelial cells lining the arteries.

For more info on how Infrared Saunas support blood pressure, weight loss, a younger, healthy body, beautiful skin, detoxification and rejuvenation, and more, please refer to my book Choose to THRIVE. Also, for more details on heat therapy, the benefits of sweating and relaxing in a sauna, and how infrared saunas prevent colds and the flu, click HERE.

For more info on the two Infrared Saunas I use and highly recommend — the Transcend or Thermal Life Infrared Saunas, contact Emery at High Tech Health International, Inc. their Senior Detoxification & Product Specialist at: 800-794-5355 (within USA and Canada) or 303-413-8500, both Ext. 813, MT, 8 - 4. They come in different sizes and shapes to fit in the tightest spaces in your home or office. Get a whopping $500 off your purchase when you mention my name (SSJ).

LIMITED-TIME SPECIAL: Get $500 discount off a Transcend Infrared Sauna and $300 off an Ionizer Plus Alkaline Water Electrolyzer.
The Transcend TR2 pictured above, designed for two people, is the one I use in my home — the best 2-person Infrared Sauna in the industry.

Alkaline Water:
Stress, diet, antibiotics, chronic disease, toxicity, medication, negative thinking, obesity, and aging all contribute to a mild but persistent acidic shift in the body (metabolic acidosis). The result of this is poor nutrient absorption, dehydration, digestive problems, mineral deficiency, an increase in blood pressure, and more — a long list of symptoms, and ultimately more serious chronic ailments. The Ionizer Plus Water Electrolyzer transforms your tap water into the healthiest water possible. By concentrating the minerals already present in your water, and making them, and the water itself, more easily absorbed by the body, the Ionizer Plus water has the capability to reverse metabolic acidosis, and promote the increased excretion of toxins. It also has all the filtration and purification that you will ever need — all in one modest counter-top unit as you can see in the photo to the side. For almost 20 years, I have used the same Ionizer Plus in my kitchen without any problems. Use my name (SSJ) as your promo code and get $300 off your purchase of an Ionizer Plus at the same telephone number above and ask Emery any questions you may have about Alkaline Water, this steller device, and how it will benefit you and your family.

To listen to one of my radio interviews on Vibrant Living where I discuss how an over-acidic body destroys health; why we must alkalize the body daily; how increasing alkalinity supports weight loss, healthy blood pressure, energy, immunity, better sleep, and a more youthful appearance; and how to make fresh alkaline water at home, click HERE.
 

3. Now Susan, let’s get to some more exciting information… and discover nature’s most effective anti-hypertensive foods. Please go through your 9 favorite blood-pressure-lowering foods and then I’ll be eager to hear about your exercise tips. By the way, you can find all of this info in much more detail in her books The Curative Kitchen & Lifestyle and Invest in Yourself with Exercise.

1. Cashews and Almonds
Both of these tree nuts are packed with magnesium, an essential mineral that plays a key role in supporting healthy blood pressure. Low magnesium levels are associated with high blood pressure, and ramping up magnesium intake can cause blood pressure measurements to be reduced.

A single cup of cashews and almonds gives you a hefty 360 milligrams of magnesium, right in the wheelhouse of the 310 to 420 milligrams per day ‘Recommended Daily Allowance’ advised by the Linus Pauling Institute. Here’s a bonus: eating almonds boost levels of serotonin, a “feel-good” neurotransmitter that may help ease the feelings of stress and anxiety that can contribute to hypertension. It’s so easy to drink almond and cashew milk, too. On my website, I give recipes on how to make these simple, delicious beverages.

2. Beets
Also referred to as beetroot, this crimson root vegetable is loaded with nitrates and nitrites. Although many people are accustomed to thinking of these as dangerous, unnatural food preservatives, both occur naturally within the body. The key factor is which compound they convert to: carcinogenic nitrosamines are produced when nitrates are superheated – as in the case of fried bacon and cigarette smoke.

But when they are converted to beneficial nitric oxide, the result is blood vessels that are dilated and relaxed – resulting in lowered blood pressure. The effect can be dramatic. In fact, studies show that beetroot juice can reduce blood pressure by up to 10 mmHg (a millimeter of mercury is a manometric unit of pressure) within hours. And if 10 mmHg doesn’t seem very significant, remember, keep this in mind. A drop of only 5 mmHg can cause a 14% reduction in your chances of fatal stroke – very significant indeed.

Valentine's Day Passion-Boosting Tips

 Libido-Boosting Superfoods & Other Aphrodisiacs

February, the month of Valentine's Day, is a great time to turn up the pilot light of your amorous side, if you are in a relationship. But really, any time of year is the perfect time to feel passion about life and your partner.

The following suggestions will rev up your libido and get you in the mood.

• Avocado – The Aztecs called the avocado tree “Ahuacuatil,” which means, translated, “testicle tree.” The ancients thought the fruit hanging in pairs on the tree resembled the male’s testicles. This is a delicious fruit with a sensuous texture. This luscious, sensual fruit contains vitamin B6 and is helpful in increasing male hormone production. In addition, potassium is found in avocado, which aids in regulating the female thyroid gland. A healthy thyroid is important for a robust libido level.

• Asparagus – Many foods thought to be aphrodisiacs were considered so because of their phallic shape. Asparagus, however, has more than just suggestive form. It is rich in vitamin E, a vitamin considered to stimulate production of our sex hormones and may be essential for a healthy sex life.

• Chili Peppers – A pepper’s heat comes from “capsaicin,” a chemical that stimulates our nerve endings, raises our pulse and makes us sweat. Some researchers believe that eating hot foods also triggers the release of endorphins, body chemicals that give us a natural high that is conducive to love-making. I take capsules of cayenne pepper every day.

• Figs – An open fig is thought to emulate the female sex organs and traditionally thought of as a sexual stimulant. Breaking open a fig and eating it in front of a lover is a powerfully erotic act.

• Garlic – The “heat” in garlic is said to stir sexual desires. Make sure you and your partner share some together. Garlic has been used for centuries to cure everything from the common cold to heart ailments. This is a good time for moderation. Enjoy pasta with a light garlicky sauce and it can lead up to something spicy in the bedroom later.
