No Llamas please
For many years I have been battling very high blood pressure. I managed to get off all pharma meds over 4 years ago. However recently I have been really scared and have had to see my doctor. 10 days ago he put me on some new pills which I thought were working, today I saw him and find they have done nothing at all, so he gave me something else.
I don't like to moan about my health, but I have really been conspicuous by my absence on here. I have not really felt much like doing much in the way of fractals as I have been so dizzy and woolly headed. I have been eating the right foods and I never eat meat. I meditate and exercise as much as I can without too much stress... However it seems I am now in the hands of big pharma and hate every minute of it. Everything I have been given gives me dreadful side effects which can all lead to conditions as bad if not worse than the high BP. I know many of you will be wanting to pass on tips and tricks, however as my brother has even higher BP than me and I talk to him every day, that we have tried and tested just about everything between us. Beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, Moxonodine, Bendroflumethiazide, Aldactone, Amias, Amlodopine etc.etc. I have tried many herbal remedies too, Hawthorn berry, olive leaf extract, I take Ubiquinol. My brother bought one of those Resperate devices, Don't think it did much good. The one thing I am totally not ever going to take are statins. I know a lot about them. They are mainly prescribed for high cholesterol reduction, however did you know the brain is made up of a lot of cholesterol? Remove that and you remove part of the brain...I With exercise you can turn that extra cholesterol into muscle. I often chat to people who are on statins and find they cannot absorb what I am saying. These drugs can cause dementia: [link]
If a doctor prescribed Coq10 alongside the Statins then the effects would be minimalised, however doctors don't in most cases and the next step is most drugs for the treatment of dementia... And big pharma gets richer by the hour. You can lower your cholesterol with vitamin E. It's good for your skin at the same time.
I am sorry if some of you are on statins and happy to take them. I am not. This is my opinion and you are entitled to yours...
I will be back as soon as I feel a bit stronger.
Take care all my lovely friends
