Natural Treatments For Hypertension and Heart Disease

Written by Webster Kehr, Independent Cancer Research Foundation, Inc. | Last updated on | Filed under: Key Articles, Other Health Conditions

WARNING: Do NOT be on prescription drugs for hypertension or heart disease, and alternative cancer treatments, at the same time. Blood thinners, hypertension drugs, etc., combined with alternative cancer treatments, can lead to unpredictable, and possibly dangerous, results. Also, if you have blood clots or plaque that have already been released, or are about to be released, into the bloodstream, there are no alternative treatments that will be able to dissolve these things in a short amount of time.

However, a person can take blood pressure medications and alternative treatments for blood pressure. It is CRITICAL to monitor the blood pressure several times a day and when the blood pressure drops too low, to stop the prescription drugs for blood pressure.

 

Introduction

I visited a good friend of mine at the hospital and later at his home. He had had a quadruple bypass. I asked him how long he had been on cholesterol drugs. He stated: 6 years!!

I ran into another friend of mine in the parking lot of a store. He stated he had gone to his doctor and his cholesterol level was 195. Both his doctor and he were very pleased. Within a week he had a heart attack and needed a quintuple bypass.

What is wrong with these pictures? What is wrong is that their cholesterol drugs were WORTHLESS.

The scientific establishment seems to latch onto medical theories, proven or unproven, that promise them many billions of dollars in profits.


Congestive Heart Failure

Congestive heart conditions require cellular energy solutions. The best cellular energy device is the Photon Genius as it does many things to energize cells. In fact, that is precisely why it was designed. It has both infrared and other sources of energy for cells.

Here are testimonials of using the Photon Genius for an 86-year old female.

If you do get a Photon Genius ($25,000), tell the Skilling Institute you heard about the Photon device on the Cancer Tutor website and your consultation will be free.

If you cannot afford a Photon Genius, there may be one near you that you can use. Contact the Ed Skilling Institute to see if there is one near you that you can use.

The Ultimate Source For Hypertension Information

While this article will say a few things about hypertension, the ultimate resource of dealing with hypertension the natural way is to spend a lot of time on the website of Dr. Lam. What this website is to natural medicine and cancer, Dr. Lam’s website is to natural medicine and hypertension.

His website is so extensive I will not give you a link to his website, I will give you a “Google Search” of his website. Copy and paste the next line into a Google search engine:

Causes of Heart Disease

I am only going to talk about the things that the orthodox medical community does not talk about (i.e. they talk about tobacco, salt, fats, etc.).

But first I want to mention a superb book by a natural medicine researcher named: Dr. Hans Nieper, MD. Best known for his cancer clinic, the late Dr. Nieper was also an expert in heart issues. His book is highly recommended for anyone with heart issues!!

The Curious Man – The Life and Works of Dr. Hans Nieper, by Dr. Hans Nieper (use Google)


Chlorine in Drinking Water

While fluoride in drinking water, especially when used in aluminum pots and pans, causes such diseases as Alzheimer’s, chlorine is a major cause of heart disease:

  • “Experimental use of chlorine to kill bacteria in public water supplies began around the turn of this century and was generally accepted in Western countries in the l920’s. Part of the chlorine reacts with organic impurities to form organochlorins (DDT is an Organo-chlorine) while the rest remains as residual free chlorine in the water. It may then react either with food chemicals or with parts of our digestive tract.

o
From 1920 onwards the explosive increase in the incidence of cardiovascular disease and fatal heart attacks began, but only in countries that chlorinated their water supplies. These diseases remained unknown, for instance, in China, Japan, Africa and ASIA. However, when Japanese citizens immigrated to Hawaii where water was chlorinated, they suffered the same rate of heart attacks as the Americans, and the black population in the US have the average US rate of heart attacks but not their brothers in Africa. Inhabitants of the non-chlorinated Roseto in Pennsylvania remained free of heart attacks unless they moved to a chlorinated area.

In 1967 a Dr J. Price in the US performed a decisive experiment. With one group of 50 three-month-old chickens (cockerels) he added one third of a teaspoon of chlorine bleach to about one liter of water whilst another group of 50 chickens served as controls. Seven months later over 95 per cent of the chlorinated group had advanced atherosclerosis, yet none of the control group showed any such evidence.

In the following years Dr Price repeated his experiment many times, always with the same results, and recently even researchers funded by the US Environmental Protection Agency have confirmed atherosclerotic type changes in other animals, including monkeys, when exposed to chlorinated water.”


Pasteurization of Dairy Products (i.e. Dairy Products)

This quote is adequate to explain one of the many things that has gone wrong in American health:

  • “Before pasteurisation nature-cure doctors recommended milk as a cure for many illnesses. Raw milk cures were famous at the beginning of the last century. Formerly people consumed plenty of cream and butter and rich meals prepared with them, and in Bulgaria and the Caucasus they set records in good health and longevity on full-fat milk products. An American doctor reportedly cured psoriasis by having his patients eat two pounds of butter a week! Despite all of this fatty food heart attacks were virtually unknown.

Now, milk is no longer a cure for any disease – on the contrary – natural therapists generally regard milk as disease forming … and heart disease is rampant. The difference? Heating over 50 C destroys the enzymes plentiful in raw milk.

http://users.mrbean.net.au/~wlast/cholesterol.html

While many people say that homogenized milk has had key enzymes destroyed, it may be that an enzyme that does not get destroyed may be a direct cause of damage to arteries. Email this web site and ask for a copy of the tape: “Oral Chelation Summary” by Karl Loren at the web site (side 2 discusses milk, but listen to both sides):

http://www.oralchelation.com/index.html

One of their major products is “Life Glow Basic” (which is a chelation product of heavy metals).

Need I even mention the growth hormones that now find their way into milk, or a host of other problems with dairy products these days. Nevertheless, margarine is so bad for a person (due to trans-fatty acids) that butter is still consumed by some health conscious people.


An Acidic Diet

Over the past several decades the soil has become more acidic due to farming practices and the very poor judgment of government officials. This has led to more acidic foods than were produced in prior generations. But also the way food is processed and the things we eat lead to a highly acidic diet. This acidic diet can lead to heart disease for a number of reasons:

  • “The heart is one of the most alkaline dependent organs in the body. It is partly innervated by the vagus nerve which functions best in an alkaline environment. The heart pumps about 520 quarts of blood an hour and about 13,000 quarts of blood a day. The blood, if not toxin-free, puts a tremendous strain upon the heart. Correct heartbeat is altered by acid wastes. These wastes rob the blood of proper oxygenation and degeneration of the heart follows. An alkaline system creates an ideal heart function.”Alkalize or Die, by Dr. Theodore A. Baroody, N.D., D.C., Ph.D., page 23

An acid diet not only causes acidic wastes in the blood, but it also creates an environment that virus, yeast, fungus and bacteria can thrive in. These microbes are also a major cause of heart disease. Actually, it is the waste products of these microbes, called “mycotoxins,” that do most of the damage.


Trans-fatty Acids (i.e. Partially Hydrogenated Oils)

Every cell in your body has cholesterol on its cell wall. If it weren’t for this cholesterol your entire body would literally melt in the rain. You would be a pool of water. Trans-fatty acids are so structurally similar to cholesterol that the slightly different trans-fatty acid molecules can become part of a cell’s wall.

But trans-fatty acids are shaped differently and are more rigid. For these reasons, when enough trans-fatty acid molecules are attached to a cell wall, large molecules, such as insulin and oxygen clusters, cannot get into the cells. This is why trans-fatty acids are a major cause of heart disease and Type II diabetes. By stopping large oxygen clusters from getting into the cells, trans-fatty acids may also cause cancer.

  • “Concerns have been raised for several decades that consumption of trans fatty acids might have contributed to the 20th century epidemic of coronary heart disease.

Metabolic studies have shown that trans fats have adverse effects on blood lipid levels–increasing LDL (“bad”) cholesterol while decreasing HDL (“good”) cholesterol. This combined effect on the ratio of LDL to HDL cholesterol is double that of saturated fatty acids.

Trans fats have also been associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease in epidemiologic studies.”

MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) – Contains Sodium

MSG is known by over 30 different names (e.g. “yeast extract”), so you are never quite sure when you are eating it. Here is a rule of thumb – if it is a processed food that tastes good, it probably has MSG in it (or by one of its other names).

  • “MSG is a chemical compound that simply does not belong in the body in the concentrations provided by these foods. It is used by food manufacturers as a taste enhancer — something to cover up the bland tastes of these foods and make them more appealing to consumers. But food manufacturers don’t want to list MSG on the labels, especially when they know that consumers will avoid purchasing products that list MSG.

So what do they do instead? They hide the ingredient in another ingredient called “yeast extract”, then they put yeast extract in the product and list “yeast extract” right on the label. So this is the scam: all sorts of natural health products and vegetarian products are using chemical taste enhancers in the form of yeast extract but failing to disclose to consumers that they actually contain MSG. And if you look around at the natural health products in health food stores and grocery stores, you’ll find that yeast extract is a rather prominent ingredient. It’s used in soups, in vegetarian mixes, in some tofu mixes, and even so-called natural frozen foods.

I can personally verify that yeast extract has the same effect as MSG, because I am an individual who is extremely sensitive to MSG. Upon consuming even a small amount of MSG, I experience a severe headache that lasts for 6 to 8 hours. Consuming yeast extract causes precisely the same effect as consuming MSG.

In fact, food manufacturers don’t deny that yeast extract contains MSG — it’s something that’s well-known in the food manufacturing industry. What’s going on here is a blatant deception — an attempt to mislead consumers by essentially renaming dangerous ingredients with harmless sounding names such as “yeast extract”.”

http://www.newstarget.com/001528.html

Here is a list of foods that contain MSG that the food industry does not want you to know about. The list was compiled by Shoshanna Allison, M.T.P.:

Food Additives That ALWAYS Contain MSG

Monosodium Glutamate [MSG]

Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein [HVP]

Hydrolyzed Protein; Hydrolyzed Plant Protein

Plant Protein Extract

Sodium Caseinate

Calcium Caseinate

Yeast Extract

Textured Protein (Including TVP)

Autolyzed Yeast

Hydrolyzed Oat Flour

Corn Oil

Food Additives That FREQUENTLY Contain MSG

Malt Extract

Malt Flavoring

Bouillon

Broth

Stock

Flavoring

Natural Flavors/Flavoring

Natural Beef or Chicken Flavoring

Seasoning

Spices

Food Additives That MAY Contain MSG Or Excitotoxins

Carrageenan

Enzymes

Soy Protein Concentrate

Soy Protein Isolate

Whey Protein Concentrate

Also: Protease Enzymes of various sources can release excitotoxin amino acids from food proteins

For more information about MSG fraud, see:

http://www.truthinlabeling.org/

MSG is also called an “excitotoxin,” meaning it causes depression, brain cancer and a whole host of other mental and medical problems.


Aspartame (e.g. Equal, NutraSweet, Diet Coke, etc.)

Aspartame artificial sweetener is found in many thousands of products. Like MSG, it is an excitotoxin and it is best known for causing depression and brain cancer. However, not to be outdone, it also causes heart attacks.

  • “More than 120 individuals experienced a detectable change in their heart rate and rhythm after consuming aspartame – including gum and products that did not contain caffeine. This included “fluttering”, (palpitations) and rapid heart action (tachycardia). A number had even undergone heart monitoring (Holter testing) and other studies, especially for the associated weakness and faint.

One patient developed a slow pulse and complete heart block within hours after consuming an aspartame drink for the first time. His attack
spontaneously subsided within a day without a pacemaker; and there has been no recurrence.”

http://www.dorway.com/chestpai.txt

I suspect there are a whole host of other things that cause heart disease, hypertension, etc. Perhaps now the reader knows why so many people only eat “whole foods” (meaning unprocessed foods, usually uncooked, frequently organic), and natural water.

By the way, aspartame and MSG are exceptionally bad for pregnant women. If you know someone who is pregnant or might become pregnant, have them read this article immediately:

A Superb Product – Coral Calcium

The best source of information about calcium ions is a book: The Calcium Factor: The Scientific Secret of Health and Youth, by Robert R. Barefoot and Dr. Carl J. Reich, M.D.

It may be that coral calcium (which is the best source of calcium) is one of the most important supplements a person can take to prevent or treat heart disease and hypertension. Since dairy products are a major cause of heart disease, coral calcium has become an important source of calcium.

  • “Since the early 1970s, study after study after study has implicated cow’s milk and other dairy products as a cause of heart disease and clogged arteries. One researcher, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn from the Cleveland Clinic (the top-rated heart clinic in the U.S.), makes people ‘heart attack-proof’ by putting them on a vegan diet (check out his groundbreaking paper in the American Journal of Cardiology, August 99).”http://www.milksucks.com/heartdisease.html

There are entire books on why not to drink milk.

However, coral calcium is a perfect substitute for milk to get the needed calcium ions:

  • “Calcium ions also play a central role within the heart muscle itself, as the excitation-contraction coupling and relaxation is accompanied by a rapid redistribution of calcium. With a defective heart, ‘as the calcium ion accumulation ability declines so does the ability to carry out contraction and relaxation.’ (The Role of Calcium in Biological Systems, Volume 1, page 135, CRC Press, 1985).”The Calcium Factor: The Scientific Secret of Health and Youth, page 79

If You are At Risk For A Heart Attack – READ CAREFULLY

If you are at risk for a heart attack, you need to carry some high quality cayenne pepper oil or liquid with you at all times. If you do have a heart attack, first call 9-1-1, then put some of the cayenne pepper oil under your tongue. By the way, try this before you get a heart attack just to see what it feels like. You may want to mix something with it so you can tolerate the sting.

  • “Cayenne has been known to stop heart attacks within 30 seconds. For example, when a 90-year-old man in Oregon had a severe heart attack, his daughter was able to get Cayenne extract into his mouth. He was pronounced dead by the medics, but within a few minutes, he regained consciousness. On the way to the hospital, he remained in a semi-conscious state, but the daughter kept giving him the Cayenne extract. By the time they got to the hospital, he had fully recovered and wanted to go home and mow the lawn. The doctor asked what she had given him, as he said it was the closest thing to a miracle he had ever seen.”http://www.cleanse.net/cayenne_and_health.HTM

In fact I have seen and heard many such testimonials, including one from my best friend!!


NEW Article

Here is a SUPERB article I have not yet had time to incorporate into this article. This is a MUST READ article:

SUPERB Heart Disease Article [MUST READ]


NEW Book

Here is a superb book that claims that the calcification that causes heart disease is related to a microbe. I find this an interesting theory because my cancer research has led me to the same conclusion about cancer. Microbes case many more diseases than people realize. The book is called:

The Calcium Bomb – The Nanobacteria Link to Heart Disease and Cancer,

by Douglas Mulhall and Katja Hansen

Both this book, and the Karl Loren tape mentioned above, mention chelation therapy (e.g. oral chelation therapy or EDTA chelation by I.V.) as a critical treatment for existing heart disease!!! The book also mentions other things.

Note also the huge success that Linus Pauling had at reducing heart disease with Vitamin C. Vitamin C is also a chelating agent.


The Good Things – Supplements

There are some absolutely superb articles in the links below. The things I want to emphasize are these items (the first 4 items are at the heart of the Dr. Matthias Rath Cellular Solution [Dr. Rath personally worked with two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling]:

1) Vitamin C (start at 1.5 grams a day, build up to 6 grams a day)

[Warning: When taking high doses of Vitamin C, do NOT buy products with added minerals, such as iodine, potassium or magnesium, this could lead to an overdose of the mineral.]

2) Oral chelation therapy using Karl Loren products (this is very critical if you currently have heart disease or are at risk). Both Vitamin C and oral chelation therapy (or EDTA chelation by I.V.) chelate heavy metals. Email this web site and ask for a copy of the tape: “Oral Chelation Summary” by Karl Loren:

http://www.oralchelation.com/index.html

3) NAC (N-Acetyl-Cysteine) and/or Chlorella [required to chelate heavy metals from the veins]

4) L-Lysine (amino acid)

5) L-Proline (amino acid)

6) L-Arginine (amino acid)

7) Coral Calcium (recommend the Barefoot product), 1.5 grams a day

8) Vitamin D (and exposure to sunshine) – [required for calcium to be absorbed by the body], minimum dose: 5,000 I.U. per day

9) CoQ10 – CoEnzyme Q10 – Co Q10, use maximum dosage on bottle

10) Niacin (for circulation), see dosage on bottle

11) Vitamin E (the natural kind, not synthetic), at least 1,000 I.U per day


The Good Things – Required Foods in Your Diet

1) Omega-3 (e.g. walnuts, fish oil or refrigerated, liquid flaxseed oil) Liquid products should be mixed with a cup of cottage cheese or a glass of skim milk to make the omega 3 water soluble. This combination of omega 3 and sulphur proteins (from the small amount of dairy) will also help you prevent cancer. Dairy products are known to be a major cause of heart disease, so do not drink or eat any more dairy products than required for the omega 3.

2) Pomegranate seed oil or pomegranate juice (make sure the pomegranate seeds are processed in the juice)

3) Purple, red or black grapes or grape juice (make sure any juice does NOT contain added sugar) – these have been proven to have a direct affect on reducing heart disease. White or green grapes are not as good!!

4) Natural Fiber (absolutely required every day). In order to get this fiber it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you eat celery PLUS take a Metamucil type of product every day!!

5) At least two eggs a day. Orthodox medicine, in their quest to suck your bank account dry, says that cholesterol is bad for you and that you should lower your cholesterol. The truth is that cholesterol is critical for your brain and heart!! See this video:

Mercola Video


The Very Bad Things to Avoid

1) Virtually eliminate from your diet all sugar, trans-fatty acids/hydrogenated oils (e.g. margarine, French fries, etc.) and all other heated oils. Trans-fatty acids are KNOWN to be a major cause of heart disease.

2) Virtually eliminate all dairy products from your diet (see exception above with omega 3). Dairy products are KNOWN to be a major cause of heart disease.

3) Avoid any form of caffeine, especially coffee, tea or caffeine soft drinks (e.g. Coke, Dr. Pepper). This does not apply to truck drivers who need to stay awake, but be aware that their bodies will form an immunity to caffeine. Caffeine restricts the blood vessels. If you must drink coffee make sure you use a high quality filter!!

4) Stop smoking or taking any form of tobacco (duh). Tobacco is loaded with yeast and fungus and their waste products (e.g. mycotoxins), among many other things.

5) Extreme moderation of alcohol, if at all. Alcohol is fermented and contains large amounts of the mycotoxins just mentioned. While studies have shown that red wine helps prevent heart disease, don’t take the red wine, take the purple grape juice mentioned above.

  • “Drinking too much alcohol can raise the levels of some fats in the blood (triglycerides) (tri-GLIS’er-idz). It can also lead to high blood pressure, heart failure and an increased calorie intake. (Consuming too many calories can lead to obesity and a higher risk of developing diabetes.) Excessive drinking and binge drinking can lead to stroke. Other serious problems include fetal alcohol syndrome, cardiomyopathy (kar”de-o-mi-OP’ah-the), cardiac arrhythmia (ah-RITH’me-ah) and sudden cardiac death.”http://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=4422

A Special Note on Hypertension

According to the book: Flood Your Body With Oxygen, the classic book by Ed McCabe, hypertension is caused by having a bad potassium to sodium ratio.

  • “We do know that a potassium-sodium imbalance caused by missing potassium, sodium and calcium is the cause of high blood pressure, and the main cause of stroke, and contributes to heart disease, memory decline, osteoporosis, asthma, ulcers, stomach cancer, kidney stones, cataracts and others.”Flood Your Body With Oxygen, page 77

Both chelation therapy, mentioned elsewhere in this article, and the potassium balance may be potent solutions to the hypertension issue.
