A Better Way to Lower Blood Pressure

The standard therapy for the tens of millions of Americans diagnosed with high blood pressure is medication. Of the many types of anti-hypertensive medications available, diuretics are the oldest and the most effective.

A team of researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has “discovered” what naturopathic physicians have been counseling their patients about for decades: mild-to-moderate endurance exercise is as effective as diuretics at lowering high blood pressure. Unlike the individuals taking the diuretics in this study, those subjects who engaged in exercise got the benefit of their overall health improving.

While medications can often make a particular symptom lessen, there is no medication that can enhance vitality and general health like regular exercise. The physicians at Nature Cures Clinic work to develop treatment plans that incorporate regular exercise, in addition to appropriate diet and nutritional therapies to optimize health.
