Gastric bypass also plays a role in the treatment for high blood pressure.
The results of a paper in the Nutrition in Clinical Practice on four hundred consecutive gastric bypass patients post-op review after a year showed that their blood pressure improved between 80 to 100%.
Those results are impressive when you think that for one year their blood pressure was under total control. So that means one year less of damages to the organs within their bodies.
I would love to say that all the natural supplements I recommended would magically lower your blood pressure for life, but as you know nothing is that easy.
Although numerous foods and supplements can help in the treatment for high blood pressure, the best results occur when they are part of a larger program.
The larger program consists of exercising regularly, eating a healthy diet, maintaining your ideal weight, de-stressing your life, saying goodbye to smoking, keeping your intake of alcohol to a reasonable level and if necessary including medication.
Since your diagnosis, how are you handling it and whats your treatment?
Do rave about your health.
