Natural Ways to Eliminate High Blood Pressure
America might be the success capital of the world, but it is turning out to become the world headquarters of debilitating chronic diseases. Data from the Center for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that two in three Americans is suffering from pre-hypertension or hypertension.
Unfortunately, the most common forms of treatment are pharmaceuticals which are prohibitively expensive and also have nasty side effects. What do you do to escape high blood pressure? Chiropractic care is a 100 natural and effective way to reduce and even eliminate high blood pressure and hypertension among the American populace.
According to recent studies, a certain chiropractic adjustment can help lower high blood pressure. This procedure, when performed by an experienced chiropractor delivers the same or more effective results compared to using two blood pressure medications at once. It gets even better it produces no negative side effects in hypertensive patients.
The chiropractic alignment that lowers high blood pressure works by realigning the Atlas vertebra, which is a bone found at the top of the spine and the base of the skull.
The Atlas vertebra plays an important role in how the spine and brain communicate as it is at the juncture between the skull and the spine. The vertebra is at the base of the brain, which is the center that controls all the muscles in the body. A misaligned Atlas vertebra results in muscular stress in the adjoining areas, and this can truncate circulation, raising blood pressure.
The painless Atlas adjustment procedure helps to release the stress and tension at the base of the skull, improving circulation, relaxing muscles, and reducing blood pressure levels. This Atlas realignment uses precise measurements to determine the alignment of the vertebra. If there is a need for realignment, the chiropractor gently nudges the bone into place, freeing up any strained muscles and optimizing blood pressure regulation.
Studies show that patients who received this adjustment experienced on average a 14mm Hg reduction in their systolic blood pressure and 8mm Hg reduction in the diastolic blood pressure. This result show that the adjustment will cause a person with a blood pressure of 130/90 to drop immediately to 116/82, which is within the healthy blood presser range.
In one study involving 290 adults including some with high blood pressure, researchers found that the chiropractic group reported improvements in their blood pressure levels compared to a placebo group who got a sham treatment. Another study conducted by George Bakris, director of the University of Chicago hypertension center also found the same results, although the study involved only 50 participants.
However, available evidence shows that a chiropractic Atlas alignment offers exceptional results for the management of high blood pressure. If you are looking for a natural, safe, and affordable way to bring down your blood pressure, chiropractic adjustments may be the answer.
