The Truth of Hypertension
Hypertension is a western medical tern for high blood pressure. High blood pressure is a very commonly seen health issue. Once you started taking Anti-hypertensive drugs you shall take them for the rest of your life. In my book "Food Therapy for Self Cure" I revealed a truth about this human disease -- Hypertension is a man made disease.
Humans are creators. Mankind has created a fantastic material world and meanwhile we also created human diseases. Hypertension and the prescription drugs that being used to treat this disease were created after someone invented blood pressure meter, and set up a normal blood pressure reading which is 120/80. Hypertension is a human creation. With blood pressure meter doctors can monitor patient's blood pressure, if his blood pressure reading is higher than the normal reading he will be diagnosed to have the disease and his doctor will let him taking prescription drugs to control his blood pressure. Western medical practice focuses on the reading of blood pressure and how to control the number. According to the theory of Chinese medicine high blood pressure is a symptom not a disease and the treatment is intended to treat the cause and lead to balanced blood pressure. According to the record of my own practice patients can quite the hypertension medication in one month with Chinese medicine. In my book you can find many natural ways to keep blood pressure balanced without taking any medicine.
