High Blood Pressure

blood-vesselsWarren Ohio Chiropractor, Acupuncturist and Holistic Physician Dr.William Schneider D.C., FIAMA, Dipl.Ac explains how high blood pressure can be lowered naturally.

 

There have been some great studies on the benefits of meditation and acupuncture for lowering high blood pressure.   And there is a study that shows Chiropractic adjustment to the first vertebra in your neck, called the Atlas has tremendous success lowering blood pressure:

“According to the researchers this very specific adjustment to the C1 is extremely specialized to the chiropractic profession. The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association takes credit for the technique used in this particular research project. The good news here is that virtually all Chiropractors are very well trained to correct atlas/C1 misalignments.”

“The chiropractic procedure was as effective as two of the most popular blood pressure medications currently being used. Eight weeks after being treated with C1 correction the patients with early stage high blood pressure (above 139/89) has significantly lower blood pressure that the other control group. Those patients who were adjusted saw an average drop of at least 14 mmhg points in the systolic blood pressure (top number) and 8 mmhg drop in the diastolic pressure (bottom number). The patients in this particular study were taking no blood pressure medication.”

High blood pressure can be a difficult condition to manage.  Medication provide symptomatic changes.  They may lower your blood pressure, however do they correct the underlying problem?

If you are taking medication for blood pressure, you will have to continue to take it probably for the rest of your life.  Once you stop the medication the blood pressure will rise again.

You have to wonder what caused the blood pressure to elevate in the first place.

Obvious things like diet and exercise are important.  However, if these approaches fail, what are you to do.  Is your only solution to take medication?

Fortunately you now know that you have options.  If you would like assistance with lowering your high blood pressure using a Holistic Approach give Dr. William Schneider D.C., FIAMA, Dipl.Ac a call at 330-372-7246.  His office is located at 2835 Elm Rd. N.E. Warren, Ohio 44483
