Also known as hypertension, high blood pressure is a condition in which the force of the blood pushing against the walls of the blood vessels is consistently too high. When blood pressure is too high it puts extra strain on not just the blood vessels but also the heart, brain, eyes, kidneys, and other organs. This can increase the risk of serious and potentially life-threatening conditions such as heart attacks, strokes, heart failure, kidney disease, and other problems.
Pharmaceutical treatments for high blood pressure, such as beta-blockers and diuretics, only address the symptoms of the condition. While lowering the pressure of the blood, they fail to correct the primary underlying cause. In contrast, Dr. Rath’s groundbreaking Cellular Medicine approach directly addresses the micronutrient deficiencies that lie at the root of the problem. As Dr. Rath has shown, micronutrients such as vitamin C, magnesium, arginine, lysine, and proline play essential roles in preventing and normalizing high blood pressure. Even better, when used together, they have a synergistic effect.
