High Blood Pressure: Thief of Health & Life


Newly updated October 25, 2018.

Do you know someone with high blood pressure? It is a truly major health problem in America. So much so, that it affects 1 out of 3 adults. HBP causes an average of over 63,000 deaths and is related to over 260,000 deaths from stroke per year. It increases risk of kidney malfunction, congestive heart failure, and heart attacks. And diet and lifestyle factors play a big role in some of the causes.

Causes of HBP range from: clogged arteries and hardening of the arteries such as arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis, and most of this brought on from fiber, calcium and magnesium deficiencies. To think that lifetime drug therapy is the answer is wrong. Medication is not required to control the disease as new information has pointed out. The drug therapies prescribed of choice are beta blockers.

These have many side effects that cause everything from:

  • impotence in men
  • increased heart attacks by up to 62%
  • an increased risk of suicide
  • joint pain
  • nausea/vomiting
  • dizziness/fainting
  • breathing problems/asthma

The following combination is what I recommend to begin reversing high blood pressure:

If you are overweight, the above supplements will help eliminate excess fat storage via the colon. Eat smaller meals more often. Eliminate hard liquor and caffeine. Smoking tobacco raises blood pressure. The above supplements are focusing on 5 major eliminatory organs: colon, skin, liver, kidneys, and lungs. Toxins released from the lungs help with smoking cravings and in this way, help you quit smoking.

Make the lifestyle changes necessary, overcome your challenges with High Blood Pressure., achieve the optimum health you deserve.


Suffering With PMS? What’s Really Going On?


PMS, Premenstrual Syndrome, is by far the most common women’s health / female’s health complaint. For some females, it disrupts their whole lives. The intricacies of a woman’s body are delicately tuned, and can become unbalanced or obstructed easily, causing pain, poor function and a disconcerting feeling of not feeling ‘together’ that often results in physiological and emotional problems, especially during the menstrual cycle.

The hormone shift in estrogen/progesterone ratios during the menstrual cycle is the major factor in PMS symptoms in the two week period before menstruation when the ratios are most elevated. Low brain serotonin, low thyroid, excess estrogen along with prostaglandin imbalance because of poor liver malfunction, and a diet loaded with too much salt, red meat, sugar and caffeine are all implicated in PMS. Most women that have PMS don’t get enough regular exercise. Many have low B vitamin levels, don’t get enough protein, and have several mineral deficiencies. Stress or long term emotional distress can most definitely also be a big factor.


  • Do your friends and loved ones say you’re usually irritable,
    argumentative or tense at certain times each month?
  • Do you notice mood swings, aggressive behavior, even
    depression at certain times each month?
  • Do you experience cyclical water retention, bloating, and
    constipation each month?
  • Do you feel a noticeable energy drop before your period, and
    have difficulty getting out of bed or doing anything?
  • Do you get sore, swollen breasts before your period?
  • Do you get nausea attacks, vomit, headaches/migraines, and heavy
    cramping just before and during your period?
  • Do you get acne and skin eruptions before and during your period?
  • Do you get pre-period mouth sores?

Menstruation is a natural part of a woman’s life. PMS is not. Women can take control
of PMS naturally and effectively.

Yes, Ladies, you can take control. And feel wonderful to be a woman, a Goddess… everyday.
