At our center we use complementary and naturopathic medicines to treat high blood pressure.
Conventional therapies for hypertension generally focus on lowering blood pressure, but do not address underlying causes. Besides excess sodium, atherosclerosis and stress, high blood pressure can be caused by deficiencies in magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids and coenzyme Q10. It may also result as an abnormal response to dietary carbohydrates. Natural medicines and dietary changes can help correct nutritional deficiencies and insulin resistance. High blood pressure related to stress can also be addressed by rebalancing the nervous system through laboratory testing and nutritional supplementation.
