Are Seniors at Risk with Blood Pressure Medications

Are Seniors at Risk with Blood Pressure Medications?

Risk with Blood Pressure Medications

The risk of falls related to blood pressure meds is actually more concerning than you may realize. Sometimes these meds can make you dizzy and that is what may lead to a fall. Depending on the age of the senior, statistically, blood pressure meds may not prolong life.  The odds of suffering a stroke or getting a heart attack without the meds may actually be less than suffering a serious fall while taking them.

And what do the research studies say?

One study spells it out pretty clearly.  An article published online February 24, 2014, in JAMA Internal Medicine showed that if you are a senior, taking blood pressure drugs significantly increases your risk for serious falls.  Serious falls are those that include hip fracture, broken bones, major head injuries, and joint dislocations.  About one in ten seniors taking blood pressure drugs experience one or more of these falls. And if you have already fallen once, and your physician still insists you stay on blood pressure drugs, your odds of another fall are doubled.

These statistics don’t even take into account lightheadedness, dizziness, impotence, weakness, chronic fatigue, heart failure, and “not so serious falls” which could lead to hospitalization.  The study experts were quoted as saying, “although non-injurious falls and minor fall injuries are associated with morbidity, we limited our study to serious fall injuries.” Is it possible they did this because these drug-induced falls were equivalent to or worse than the strokes and heart attacks the drugs were prescribed to prevent!

How many drugs are seniors on?

More startling information came out of this study.  The more drugs you are on along with your blood pressure drugs, the worse your odds.   And it turns out that “most patients are on 10-plus medications by the time they are 70.”  Once your reach this level of medication, you don’t have much of a chance.

The article stated that the potential harm and death associated with serious falls and injuries from blood pressure drugs are about the same or worse than stroke and heart attack combined.  If you take blood pressure meds and experience dizziness, weakness, or get light-headed, let your doctor know.

These supplements may help...

Finally, if you are concerned about your blood pressure or your blood pressure drugs, practice the following.  Combined, these simple techniques will do more to help you safely maintain proper blood pressure, make you stronger and more confident, and make your golden years much more golden and enjoyable….

  1. Get daily exercise.  But don’t overdo.
  2. Practice Deep Breathing.
  3. Support yourself with Cardio-Plus (6-9 daily) and Min-Tran (6-9 daily) from Standard Process, and Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil (3-6 daily).  These can be ordered through our office.  Just complete this free health assessment to order.
  4. And prepare yourself for better balance by using one of these balance bracelets. These bracelets are effective in harmonizing and balancing the body, including relief from stress when exposed to EMFs. Seniors close to me swear by them! They feel more confident and stronger!

Now even medical research is sharing a warning.  Weigh the risks carefully and proceed with caution.  Consider all options and stay operating in your world with proper nutrition as long as possible.

Meditation Far Superior To Drugs For Heart Disease

“I instruct patients with stubborn hypertension that resists all therapies, including nutritional and drug therapies, to practice meditation and/or deep breathing. The results are always good…” Health Alert, Vol. 23, No. 12

There are four or five different types of blood pressure drugs. They all carry a litany of paralyzing side effects, and none of them, even if taken for 20 to 30 years, statistically provide for fewer heart attacks, strokes, or deaths. Heart disease drugs are not much better. However, another study reveals that transcendental meditation provides a 50% reduction in heart attacks, strokes, and death compared to patients who do not meditate!

A study granted by the federal government and conducted at the Medical College of Wisconsin was presented at the American Heart Association’s annual meeting (Nov 16, 2009). The results were so dramatic that medical experts said it was as if those practicing meditation were taking a new class of medications!

The amazing part of all this is simply that there are no medical treatments, surgeries, drugs or combination of drugs that can provide anything close to a 50% reduction in heart attacks, strokes, or heart disease deaths-none! And yet mediators accomplished this without any medical treatment whatsoever-simply by using the relaxing technique of meditation.

If you are backed into a corner with stubborn hypertension or heart disease that will not quit, be sure to start meditating, or at least practice deep breathing daily. To learn to meditate, simply go to www.tm.org and find out how to learn transcendental meditation. At the very minimum, practice deep breathing. If you need help, simply send me a self-addressed, stamped (with two stamps) envelope and write DEEP BREATHING. The address is Health Alert, 30 Ryan Court, #100, Monterey, CA 93940. I will send you my free flyer to get you started.

Better yet, start meditating or practicing deep breathing while you eat a new, healthy diet and start exercising. In addition, use a protocol that includes the cardiotonic nutrients that really make a difference. If you need help with this, just use my protocols, or drop me a line about your problem with a self-addressed, stamped (with two stamps) envelope. The address is Health Alert, 30 Ryan Court, #100, Monterey, CA 93940.

When you combine meditation with nutrition and exercise, you simply hit a home run. After a few months on this type of protocol, the only thing left to do is to have your physician wean you off the paralyzing blood pressure and/or heart drugs that were prescribed in a futile effort to resolve your problems. Meditation alone is better than all medical therapies-including drugs, combined drugs, heart surgeries, and more. But you will never get a prescription for meditation-except here.
