High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is one of the easiest problems to correct without resorting to drugs.
The most important change to make is to stop using caffeine as in coffee, tea, or carbonated beverages. Don’t use decaffeinated coffee or tea either because of the solvent pollution in them. Switch to hot milk or hot water if a hot beverage is desired, or any of the beverages given in the recipe section. If being without caffeine leaves you fatigued, take an arginine tablet in the morning (500mg).
Blood pressure is mainly controlled by the adrenal glands which sit like little caps on top of the kidneys. Whatever is affecting the kidneys is probably affecting the adrenals, too, since they are so close to each other. You must find out what it is.
You could search your kidneys since kidney tissue is available in grocery stores. Adrenal tissue is available on microscope slides. What will you find? Probably cadmium.
Search for the cadmium source in your drinking water! Cadmium comes from the metal pipes. In fact, you should scrape a galvanized pipe to get a cadmium test substance. Conducting or storing drinking water in containers of metal is as foolish a practice as eating food off the floor. Water picks up everything it touches simply because it is wet! You may not see what it picked up any more than you see if it has picked up sugar or salt.
The cadmium and other metal is dissolved in the water. The older the pipes the softer, more corroded they are, and the more metal is picked up as the water rushed by. If you find cadmium in your hot or cold water, you will never be able to filter it out. Nor should you switch to bottled water. The amount of cadmium in your clothing from doing laundry with this water is already too much for your adrenals and kidneys.
Change your galvanized pipes to PVC plastic. If you believe you already have plastic pipes or all copper (which leads to leukemia, schizophrenia and fertility problems) you will need to search every inch of plumbing for a very short piece of galvanized pipe left in the system! A piece as short as a 2 inch T or Y can be causing all the trouble.
The toxicity of cadmium, in fact, the high blood pressure connection, has been known a long time. After finding the cadmium start on the kidney cleanse. You might miss the cadmium problem if you don’t attend to it first. Also remove all metal from your mouth.
