Blood Pressure

Increase blood pressure if it is habitually too low. Blood

pressures below 110 may prevent strokes but ruin the quality of

life. Low blood pressures are often due to toxins from foods. But

severe salt deprivation in the diet can also cause this. If the

adrenal glands are not conserving salt properly, too much so

dium is allowed to leave the body with the urine, resulting in low

sodium levels in the blood and a blood pressure drop. Adrenal

performance is improved by taking the kidney herb recipe.

The kidney herbs (page 549), at half dose level (Ĺ cup a day

instead of a whole cup) can be given daily for three weeks and

then on alternate days indefinitely. Be very careful to keep the

herbal tea sterile by reheating. Elderly people seem to sense the

improvement given by kidney herbs. Try other kidney herbs from

time to time: shave grass, cedar berries, juniper berries,

butcherís broom, cornsilk. None interfere with drugs. Remember,

they also have a diuretic effect. Be prepared to use extra

paper padding in underwear to help catch the extra urine

output. The first few nights may be disturbed by extra urination.

Interpret this positively.

After the blood pressure comes up to 115 (systolic) mental

performance will be greatly improved. Don't try to bring it up to

120 since this raises the stroke potential without giving you much

improvement in performance. Use an electronic device to

measure blood pressure, one with a finger cuff, not an arm cuff

which can itself induce broken blood vessels. Purchase a device

that needs no adjustments of any kind and has automatic cuff

tension control (see mail order catalogs if your pharmacy does

not have one).
