The reason why there are so many types of blood pressure drugs is because if one of them worked very well without adverse side effects, there would be no need for the others, but they all have adverse effects as the fine print in the package insert will show anyone with an inquiring mind.
40 years ago, a bulletin sent to cardiologists by the American Heart Association said that unless the blood pressure is inordinately high with a diastolic (lower number) of 105 or more, treatment should begin with environmental factors rather than drugs. Here are some suggestions to help lower blood pressure:
1. What we put in our mouth is the main factor in most cases. 97% of people are born "normal," and if they have a problem 40 or 60 years later, they did it to themselves, but this is also reversible early better than later. The three no-no's are alcohol, salt and fats. Alcohol makes the blood sticky and should be avoided. We need about 1-2 grams of salt a day, but the average American gets about 10 times their need in packaged and processed foods. A high fat diet also makes the blood sticky, so that more pressure is needed to push it through the vessels. This means finding a low-fat salad dressing and avoiding fried foods. The tasty part of
2. Exercise helps lower blood pressure several ways, one of which is helping us cope with stress and enabling us to sleep better. If we don't get enough sleep, the body makes stress hormones (catecholamines) that drive our blood pressure up.
3. Sunlight has a mild blood
4. Avoid heavy meals within 3-4 hours of sleeping. Food in the blood stream with
5. Drinking more water would be beneficial for most people, but not at meal-time, especially not ice water as it shuts down digestion, and water dilutes the digestive juices. Drink between your meals.
6. Positive mental attitudes like the words on our coins, "In God we trust," are good for us all.
7. Some prescription drugs can cause high blood pressure. Ask your pharmacist for a package insert and study it, looking up any words you don't know on Google, and consider seeking natural remedies the same way.

Stress is a well-known and identified problem within the nursing profession. According to Atkinson stress occurs when one is faced with events or encounters that they perceive as an endangerment to their physical or psychological well-being
Another day taking care of sick people. You love your job but the stress of your day is encroaching on your health. Maybe you find yourself tired all the time no matter how much sleep you get. Or you are finding that those scrubs, normally loose, are now fitting tight around the middle. Does your diet consist of donuts, soda and coffee to make it through the day? Having worked at the bedside as a Registered Nurse for years, I know my job took a toll on my health. My weight sky rocketed, I felt overwhelmed and tired. I didn't work out,
There is an air of resentment within physician waiting rooms that is sweeping the land. Why, you ask? Many patients are tired of waiting in your aptly named "waiting room".
When you make patients wait for what they perceive as too long, you are making the following statements to them:
The flu season is upon us, and many nurses are forced to get the flu vaccination or face termination by their employer. The flu vaccine is not a guarantee that we won't get the flu. Scientists must be diligent every year to track down the mutations that the virus has made, to get the strain for the vaccine correct.
Nurses lead busy lives and it's difficult to keep your weight loss goals in check when you're forced to watch other nurses ordering pizza and other take-out foods during your shift. All too often we decide well, maybe I'll just have one piece of pizza or birthday cake and ice cream? It's hard not to feel deprived when you are hungry.
This is the day many women have been waiting patiently for. The Food and Drug Administration has finally approved a drug that's designed to help women enjoy sex more and increase their libido.
The FDA has approved the first drug to treat sexual dysfunction in women. Flibanserin also called the "female Viagra" is a drug for premenopausal women who have low sexual desire.
I was born in the late 60's in Great Britain, and I know I'm not alone when I say that I remember traveling in the back seat of the car with no seatbelt and cigarette smoke billowing from the front of the car where my Father was sitting. I just figured it was normal, although I hated the smell and breathing the smoke into my little lungs.
