Just for the heart of it, I thought I would share a comprehensive protocol for lowering high blood pressure.
How many people do you know who are put on high blood pressure medication and are never EVER taken off of it? Would you agree that medications land in the liver and kidneys and never go away?? If there was a way you could naturally lower your blood pressure without medications would you do it ?
Would you tell someone you know and care about that there is perhaps a healthier way??
Here is something you might share: Lower your High Blood Pressure…Naturally

Essential Fatty AcidsDr. Bruce Miller calls EPA ( Fish Oil ) nature’s Teflon because it makes arterial walls more slippery & red blood cells more flexible, thus improving blood flow. This means the heart does not have to pump as hard to move blood around, which reduces blood pressure. Omega-3 fatty acids, like those in fish, play a role in forming certain prostaglandins – hormone-like substances associated with cardiovascular health. EPA is a natural marine lipid concentrate that helps reduce risk factors for heart disease, helps lower cholesterol, triglycerides & elevated blood pressure. It’s also a natural anti-inflammatory. Not all fish oil products are created equally. Look for quality sourced, triple distilled, pharmecuetical grade. (see thisvideo)

Complex B is one fo the most effective treatment for high blood pressure and helps prevent heart disease.
