Hypertension & Healing With The Masters

Hypertension & Healing With The Masters

Genetics, Hypertension and Healing with the Masters have an intertwining relationship.

We are told how important it is to know our family medical history – if our family members have high blood pressure, then as a risk factor, we are most likely to succumb to the disease also.

This fate can put us in a victimized controlled state of acceptance, with little options except medicine due to the horrible life-threatening complications that can occur with hypertensive dis-ease.

According to Dr. Chakravarti at the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine,  “If we can increase the number of genes implicated in blood pressure maintenance from the current 12 to the expected 50 in the next year, our understanding of the biology will change completely.”  The interesting thing about these newly found genes that regulate blood pressure – none are addressed by current prescription drugs to control blood pressure.

New Biology

Perhaps  the understanding of biology has already changed completely.  This is where Healing with the Masters blends with genetics and high blood pressure.

Currently running and on-going until May 2010,   Healing With The Masters is a free interview teleseminar series with the leaders in Wellness and new thought.  One of the speakers is Dr. Bruce Lipton, a pioneer in the field of New Biology, where research shows that genes and DNA are not in control of our biology.  What controls our genes, are signals received from our positive and negative thoughts!

Check out the video on Dr. Lipton and the New Biology:

Wow! This puts us back in the driver’s seat to control and possibly cure our hypertensive disease.

Healing With The Masters series, is introducing me to new leaders in wellness and I am delighted to see that my friend, Howard Martin, with HeartMath is presenting also!

Cardiac-Cocktails

A study was done to evaluate how many people, scheduled
for surgery, were using cardiac medications and alternative techniques.
(Eric H. Liu,et al; Surgery for acquired cardiovascular disease
and use of alternative medicine by patients undergoing cardiac surgery.)

The result?   75%!

Of significance and something I often encounter when
practicing echocardiography, is that 48% were not
interested or willing to share with their doctor that
they were using alternative therapies.

Cocktails – Medicine And Alternative Therapies

This opens the platform for the concept of cocktails and
the mixing together of  ingredients.

Quite common, most medicated hypertensive patients are
on cardiac cocktails (a number of different heart medications.)
The above study would suggest that the majority of people are
combining some type of complimentary modality.

Are you one of those 75% who combine alternative
therapy with high blood pressure medicine?
Please,  let us know your experience below.

As a researcher, I would have gone further in the study to
understand why people employ a cocktail of medical modalities.
Perhaps the rational for combining traditional and alternative
methods is a desire to heal the underlying cause versus treating
the symptom of high blood pressure.

Again, the idea of cocktails creates a common connection
between heart medications and complimentary methods.
Just as in traditional medicine, where multiple heart drugs
are often needed to stabilize blood pressure, the same can
be found with holistic medicine – a cocktail of implementing
alternative methods and lifestyle choices is commonly required
to treat the underlying cause of hypertension.

In this blog, we look forward to sharing information and numerous
natural methods which treat the source of high blood pressure,
to empower a healthier, happier you.

A cautionary note: If you are scheduled for surgery, please
discuss with your doctor and anesthesiologist your use of alternative techniques and cardiac medications to ensure the best outcome of the surgery.
