I have successfully managed many patient’s blood pressure concerns. A multi pronged approach is necessary. Working with optimal nutritional choices is vital, along with a supportive lifestyle and exercise plan. Liver and kidney function need to be assessed. Adrenal function tests and heavy metal analysis are beneficial.
For hypertension one particular herbal medicine called, African snake root, has profound effects. It was used a lot in the last century, and is still effective today for the majority of my patients. It is known as Rauwolfia serpentina, and it calms the central nervous system and leads to a reduction in blood pressure readings. Ghandi, in India, used it on a regular basis.
Rauwolfia works best with other herbal medicines and nutrients. I have been impressed that it has worked well with the majority of my patients. Thus, Rauwolfia is my first line of therapy.
If it is ineffective I will prescribe other anti-hypertensive medications judiciously.
