I’ve never met anyone who thought: “Geez, I’d really love to take more prescription medication!”
Approximately 29 percent of American adults have high blood pressure, which can have serious consequences. But even with education, many people do not take the medication as prescribed.
Research shows that about half of the patients whose blood pressure is not getting under control is because the patients aren’t continuing to take their medication. Yet, high blood pressure puts people at greater risk for heart disease, and I’ve never met anyone who thought, “Bring on the heart disease!”
So, if you have high blood pressure, are you stuck taking medication for the rest of your life? Not necessarily. There are natural ways to help lower your blood pressure and potentially avoid medication.
