Hypertension/ high blood pressure

Hypertension/ high blood pressure:

 

Condition description:

Hypertension is a condition in which the muscles of the wall of the arteries constrict causing the heart to pump harder or in which arteries have lost their elasticity due to arterial sclerosis.  Consistent blood pressure readings higher than 140/90 indicate the existence of this condition. 

Common symptoms:

Typically, high blood pressure is found during routine blood pressure checkups.  It is mostly asymptomatic disease.  However, blood pressure can be associated with headaches, lightheadedness, ringing in ears, and bloody noses.

Underlying causes: 

Key factors include weight gain, sedentary life style, poor diet, nutritional deficiencies, poorly manage stress, heavy metal accumulation especially lead or cadmium can also be a potential cause.

 

Conventional treatment:

If high blood pressure is not treated effectively, you may be more susceptible to heart attack, stroke, and congestive heart failure.  Various medications can be used to control blood pressure.

EHAC Approach: 

Underlying causes should be explored.  Diet especially high in carbohydrates (bread, pasta, sugar, sweets, potatoes, sweet potatoes etc.) can cause insulin resistance, which can lead to several problems.  Some serious complications of insulin resistance can be summed up within acronym CHAOS where C stands for coronary artery disease, H stands for hypertension, A stands for adult onset diabetes, O stands for obesity and S is for stroke.  For insulin resistance a healthy diet needs to be adopted, which is low in sugar, grains like wheat, pasta, and oatmeal etc. Look for mineral deficiencies especially magnesium deficiency and correct them. Low thyroid can cause hypertension. Investigate for the possibility of low thyroid.

Story:

In 1999, I suffered from severe diarrhea, vomiting, yeast infections and high blood pressure.  My physician decided to do exploratory surgery to find out what was causing the constant loss of body fluids, as his testing and medication did not solve my issues.

I was advised by a friend to see Dr.; Sultan for a second opinion before going into surgery.  My first visit with Dr. Sultan was based on educating me on foods, and my environment.  Then he scheduled me for allergy testing.  My second visit was the results of such test, which revealed my sensitivity to sugar, flour, vinegar, etc.  I was able to avoid surgery, rid myself of constant yeast infection, and now, rather than daily medication for high blood pressure, it is controlled with medication 3 times per week.  Also with vitamins, minerals, clean diet, meditation and daily exercise.  Our goal is to rid me of medication altogether.

Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

Two most important causes for all sorts of gastrointestinal diseases are yeast and food allergy. These are missed all the time. The resulting illness can be a simple, digestive upsets to severe diarrhea, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease. An unnecessary surgery saved; a life saved!

 

Condition Treated:

Story:

When I first came to Dr. Sultan, I was exhausted.  My bones ached, my muscles had no strength, and I was suffering from muscle cramps throughout my body. I had been to doctor after doctor, had most of my parathyroid and half of my thyroid removed, been placed on high blood pressure medication and been told there was nothing wrong with me.

Dr. Sultan provided an assessment of just what was happening with my body and proposed a course of treatment.  After only one magnesium injection, I felt an extreme relief of the cramping and muscle fatigue.  Dr. Sultan also placed me on a natural thyroid to replace the synthetic thyroid prescribed by another doctor that was not working.  The thyroid change has made the most significant difference in my outlook and ability to function.  With continued care and using a prioritized list of my issues, Dr. Sultan is slowly addressing my health concerns.  Next on my list are the high blood pressure and my weight control.  Thank you.  Dr. Sultan for improving my quality of life to the point where I look forward to each day with hope!

Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

complex problems like this have multiple causes. Though she was being treated for low thyroid following partial thyroidectomy (removal of thyroid) but she was being treated with synthetic thyroid. Natural thyroid in the form of Armour thyroid produces far superior results. We have taken many patients of synthetic thyroid like Synthroid and put on Armour thyroid and they have done fantastic. Magnesium deficiency is an important cause for musculoskeletal pain.

Story:

I no longer am having to go to a psychiatrist for depression. I no longer have the hives. I was taken off Synthroid and put on (desiccated) thyroid. The thyroid medicine was increased from 1 grain to 2 grains. After starting the allergy shots, my blood pressure became normal. I have not had any wheezing in the bronchial tubes so the asthma has improved. With the corrected dosage of thyroid and the mineral deficiencies corrected I have more energy and feel better in general. Even though I do have diabetes, my blood sugar is generally under control.

Dr. Sultan’s Comments:

We all know that low thyroid is an important cause for depression. Even though patient has low thyroid, still depression gets treated by the psychiatrist. In our experience synthetic thyroid like Synthroid may not give the optimum relief and instead switching to Armour Thyroid which has two hormones T4 and T3 vs. Synthroid is only one hormone-T4 patient do much better and this was a turning point in improving her depression. In your normal frame of mind you will never think about going to an allergist for hypertension but the truth of the matter is that environmental, nutritional and hormonal factor affects the body as a whole and after immune and nervous system the next most important organ in system involved is the cardiovascular system. Taking care of underlying causes like low thyroid and magnesium deficiency can improve hypertension and again reducing the need for blood pressure medications. So in hypertension who you may call? environmental allergist and he may be able to optimize blood pressure for you.
