Faith is intuitive recognition of the truth behind all things. It’s not simply passive acceptance, but committed belief put into action. We can live up to our highest potential and make our dreams come true.

To listen to my interview on This Week in America, with where I discuss Molecular Hydrogen and all the ways it benefits the body head to toe, inside out, please click HERE.

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!

Below are excerpts from an interview on the national program, This Week in America, with host Ric Bratton, where together we discuss hypertention and the best natural remedies to lower blood pressure...that really work! To listen to the excerpts of this interview below in audio form, please click HERE.
 

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 Wired for High-Level Wellness. 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 Infrared Saunas, contact High Tech Health International, Inc. at: 800-794-5355 (within USA and Canada) or 303-413-8500, both 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 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 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 Kitchen Gardening, Wired for High-Level Wellness 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.

Have People Lost Their Compassion?

 

Let Kindness Be Your Default Position & Guiding Light


Our lives are made up of millions of choices. Moment to moment, we are always choosing. What we are consists of the sum of our choices: what we think, what we imagine, how we react, what we eat, what we say, what we feel and what we expect. It’s time to take back the responsibility for our own lives and create what we want—a healthy, fit body and a fulfilling, successful, joyful and peaceful life.

In the pages of my book, BE THE CHANGE: Living with Faith, Confidence & Vigor, I take you back to the basics and show you how to live a more harmonious, balanced and soul-satisfying life in simple, practical ways.  To read the entire Foreword for BE THE CHANGE, click HERE.

On the popular, national radio show, This Week in America with host Ric Bratton, we talk about Be the Change and simple ways to fill your life with confidence, faith and joy, and make lasting, positive changes in your physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. I also discuss why it's so important to bless your body temple daily, how you can remain peaceful in the midst of a stressful day, and much more. To listen now, click HERE

Gandhi said... the pure loving kindness of one gentle soul could nullify the hatred of millions. It's time for all of us to be more tenderhearted and to show kindness to everyone.


Are people really getting meaner or is it just your imagination? From the halls of Congress to the main streets of small-town America and big cities everywhere, it seems like no one is capable of civilly listening to others whose viewpoints are different.

As I write about in my book BE THE CHANGE: Living with Faith, Confidence & Vigor, I believe that we are in the midst of an epidemic in which few people have the time to be kind. This rampant form of business is nothing short of a sickness—a form of self-centeredness brought about by people rushing around trying to make ends meet and cope with mounting stress and numerous health issues.

Do you feel overwhelmed in your life and less compassionate than you did years ago? As I counsel people around the country, and even worldwide, it's been my experience that most people are burning the candle at both ends — daily; most people are experiencing severe sleep debt; most people have no time to call their own; and most folks are living in what I refer to as a spin-cycle lifestyle. Can you relate to any of this?

World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not just mere absence of violence. Peace is, I think, the manifestation of human compassion.
~ Dalai Lama

The more you rush around without keeping your life in perspective and in balance, the more you lose compassion for others and yourself, too. People are in such a rush these days, living on the fast track — talking fast, eating fast, and moving fast. What a difference from 50 years ago. Did you know that you'll probably do more in this year — with appointments, people to meet, and places to go — than your grandparents did their entire lives? Given our current pace, we barely have time to relax and cultivate relationships with our spouses and children, friends and nature, much less with God. Is it any wonder that stress-related diseases are on the rise? We are under pressure to keep busy even in our leisure hours.

Computers have sped up our lives. We want to do everything, and we want to do it all at once. We talk on the telephone and text while we drive (even though there are now laws against this), watch television while we read, and conduct business while we listen to the radio. I see this as a sickness of epidemic proportions — a "busyness" or "hurry" sickness. This type of lifestyle also drains our hearts of compassion, according to many studies of late. If you understand the speed of life, you can slow it down by enjoying it more and by making a conscious choice of being more compassionate. Start with yourself. You'll find countless tips in my book BE THE CHANGE.

William Penn described well the importance of not putting off acts of kindness when he wrote, If there is any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not deter or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again. What's more, the Dalia Lama avowed: “World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not just mere absence of violence. Peace is, I think, the manifestation of human compassion.”

INTERVIEW WITH SSJ

Susan Smith Jones, PhD, hasn’t been sick in over 30 years. She doesn’t receive flu shots or take medications. Some people may call it clean living, others may credit luck, but Jones attributes her phenomenal health to the wisdom passed down from her grandmother who taught her to rely on nature’s nourishment—food, spices, herbs and healthy lifestyle choices— for total wellness.

Jones has made it her life’s mission to spread this wisdom, first as a teacher for more than 30 years at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and by establishing herself as a foremost expert on diet, nutrition and natural remedies, writing more than 2,500 magazine articles on health and 30 books, including Choose to Thrive, Invest in Yourself with Exercise, Living on the Lighter Side, The Curative Kitchen & Lifestyle, and for children, Vegetable Soup/The Fruit Bowl.

When it comes to creating vibrant health season after season, Jones said we should look to the “superfoods” and other lifestyle choices for healing the body, boosting immunity, and feeling energetic and youthful... at any age. Each day when you wake up, she says, can be a new beginning, a fresh start where you commit to the healthiest lifestyle possible. She reminds us that we are the President and CEO of our body and our life and we need to make our health a top priority day in, day out.

Here are her top tips for staying well — mentally, physically and spiritually — this season and beyond.

happiness & a balanced life,
God bless, Susan
