Hypertension medication was designed to treat high blood pressure because for many years it was assumed that a harder than normal pounding of the blood on the artery walls was the cause of heart attacks and strokes.
Hypertension is an insidious and pervasive silent killer. Although almost entirely without symptoms itself, it is a major risk factor for crippling ailments such as heart disease, kidney disease and stroke.
Hypertension is the symptom of a mineral imbalance in the cells and tissues of the body that has been caused by an imbalance in the diet.
Unfortunately, although hypertension drugs may have some merit for individuals whose blood pressure is too high, many undesirable side effects come with the territory. We shouldn't be surprised at all, since hypertension medication alters basic body functions, both in the blood vessels and in the nervous system, not to mention the kidneys.
It may be resolved when a new blood-pressure treatment come on the market that is of potential interest to hypertension patients whose blood pressure is not being adequately controlled with monotherapy.
