Neck surgery or vitamin D: Which would you use to treat high blood pressure?

by , 06 September 2013

When it comes to treating high blood pressure, the latest scientific advance may come as a big surprise. It's neck surgery. But why would you opt for something risky, when there's an easy, safe, all-natural way to treat high blood pressure instead?

High blood pressure affects one in three people worldwide!

And, as the precursor to stroke, heart attacks and kidney failure, it’s dangerous too.

Now, “scientists experimenting with rats have found that de-activating certain nerves in the neck can effectively treat high blood pressure,” reveals iol.

What does the surgery involve?

During their research, scientists removed the nerve links between the brain and the carotid body in the mice’s brain. Without this nerve, the animals’ blood pressure fell and remained low.

Pretty drastic when you consider there’s a safe, natural remedy to lowering your blood pressure.

How vitamin D lowers high blood pressure

Nutrition & Healing’s natural health specialist, Dr Jonathan Wright believes one of the most effective methods for reducing blood pressure is vitamin D.

In an article earlier this week, we explained why.

Here’s a quick recap: Because “without adequate supplies of vitamin D, one of your genes (a tiny part of your DNA) initiates the formation of excess quantities of a molecule called renin. Renin breaks down another molecule into angiotensin I. Angiotensin I is then converted into angiotensin II. And this is the ‘bad stuff’ that (in excess amounts) causes high blood pressure.”

All it takes to benefit, is making sure you get at least 10,000 IU of vitamin D a day.

The choice is yours. But if it comes down to lowering your blood pressure through evasive, potentially-dangerous surgery or naturally, we know which one we’d choose.

And since the best source of vitamin D is the sun, we can think of no better reason to get out and get some sun this weekend.
