The latest research coming out of the States says that taking meds for elevated blood pressure may not be the best thing for your health. Especially if you're over the age of 65.
But it's not a reason for you to simply stop taking your medication, says researchers at UT Southwestern who performed the latest study.
Instead, this should give you a perfect opportunity to really look into your health to determine what your body needs and what you can change to improve your health naturally.
Let's have a look at what the research says…

You could be experiencing the symptoms of the No. 1 most dangerous health problem in the world!?
Are you out of breath just climbing one flight of stairs?
Do you suffer severe headaches without knowing why?
Do you suddenly get a ringing in your ears? And blurry vision?
You could be experiencing the symptoms of the No. 1 most dangerous health problem in the world today: High Blood Pressure
Discover the truth about blood pressure and how you can lower it with little effort and without medication
The later you start taking meds for elevated blood pressure, the higher your risk
Dr Anil Makam, lead author of the study, says that you should be careful about taking thiazide diuretics – the common medication for treating elevated blood pressure
– if you receive the diagnosis that you have high blood pressure
and you’re around the age of 65.
This because the older you are, the worse your health becomes and, the risks of using this particular drug is well known. But the problem is that the risks aren’t well recorded when it comes to what it does to older patients.
The study now proves that there’s a high risk of older patients developing metabolic illnesses like diabetes
etc. And it makes these diseases worse if the patient already suffers from it.
So what do you do?
Speak to your doctor about your elevated blood pressure meds
It’s important to understand why you’re taking chemical meds. Ask your doctor all the right questions
before you start taking any medication.
Also ask him if it’s necessary to be on meds and whether you can rather try changing your diet and lifestyle instead.
Don’t let medications that should heal you, harm your health instead! Speak to your doctor about the meds you’re on.
