topic that affects tens of millions of Americans and hundreds of millions of people around the world but the good news is you don’t need to turn to modern medicine we’re going to teach you how to use ancient medicine for a high blood pressure diet and natural remedies blood pressure can be a challenge there are as I mentioned many people that are hypertensive or have high blood pressure some don’t even know it and medications certainly work but they come with side effects I truly believe that elevated blood pressure can absolutely be lowered and we’re going to share with you a few tricks of the trade and as always if you love this information click the like button and if you know someone who has high blood pressure who has some kidney issues and wants to improve their health this is the show for them so make sure to click that share button let people know that there is ancient medicine for high blood pressure let’s get started number one vegetables I want to let you in on a little secret my opinion is that the key or a key to overcoming high blood pressure is to balance your dietary potassium and sodium ratio check this out the average American consumes about 10 times as much sodium as they do potassium in their diet the natural diet should be opposite more potassium than sodium what does that cause high blood pressure what does that cause holding of water what does that cause all kinds of issues with energy and other imbalances so vegetables and their consumption you see it on the screen multicolored vegetables all have potassium in fact some of the best our celery and it’s juice watermelon in its juice especially the rind these are great sources of dietary potassium and sodium when you consume a beverage or food you want I have at least a ratio of potassium to sodium of three-to-one so vegetables are a great source of potassium virtually any vegetable can help you and juices as we’ve talked about before serum soluble nutrition getting right in your cells immediately available number two fresh fruit right here we have apricots fresh or dried fruit is a great source of again potassium and also antioxidants both fruits and vegetables have antioxidants which protect your cardiovascular system your capillaries your veins and your arteries consume fresh fruit and as always consume it in moderation we like the higher fiber lower sugar fruits grapefruits are great green apples are great berries are amazing in fact cranberries I’ve been saying this dr. axe got me turned on to cranberries not just for Thanksgiving but every day great source of antioxidants super low in sugar and really good sources of fiber think about this potassium fiber good fats and antioxidants that’s the answer for blood pressure number three lean proteins blood pressure can be a little bit related to blood sugar so consuming lean sources of protein and really what this is meant to say are sources of protein where the animals are on a native diet pasture raised animals have a better ratio of fat and when you eat animals you’re not what you eat you’re what they ate speaking of potassium and animals bone broth is my favorite blood pressure food bone broth contains naturally occurring potassium in a form your body can use immediately serum soluble is what we call it and the potassium and sodium is organically bound going to work right away as always consume one to three servings of bone broth make it yourself find recipes at dr. axe com buy it in its frozen or container format your local health food store or progressive grocery or use a powdered protein made from bone broth I make sure to get a minimum of three to five servings a day and it will help tremendously with blood your beans and legumes remember we talked about fiber and antioxidants beans are great sources my favorite beans would be lentils split peas mung beans adzuki beans and black beans the darker the bean darker the color the more antioxidants there are many other good beans make sure to soak them to make them more digestible healthy fats this is a broad category right there you see an avocado and avocados are a great source of Omega 9 fats fiber vitamin E which is good for the heart as well powerful antioxidant of the fat soluble variety and avocados are good for the gut other sources of fat that are really good for blood pressure would be almonds the oil of olives otherwise known as olive oil olives themselves are really good and the fat from healthy eggs and animal foods butter and ghee coconut oil is great healthy fats are really important particularly those from Coldwater fish flax Chia and walnut known as omega threes when you consume grains make them sprouted sprouted grains which you can make yourself or now by bread pasta cookies crackers even flour from your health food store that’s sprouted unlocks the nutrition and grains can be a good source of fiber and B vitamins and also potassium depending on what you put on the sandwich or on the pasta but if you consume grains try sprouted and organic unsweetened dairy now I’m going to give you a caveat here ok dairy can be sort of a catch-22 Dairy in the right form and that would be a one beta casein free I know it’s confusing but let’s make it easier dairy from goat sheep or special cows how do you know they’re special you need to know if they’re a one free they’re grass-fed and organic dairy products can actually according to clinical studies lower blood pressure likely due to the high amount of electrolyte minerals calcium is even helpful for lowering blood pressure as is magnesium we talked about potassium and sodium alright here’s some tips cook at home now I don’t know about you but I like to eat out however I’m also a label reader which doesn’t happen when I eat out so the question is what oil did they use the question is what’s in the sauce what is in the condiments we just don’t know these things we don’t have that information who wants to be the weird person to ask right we want to make sure that we eat at home and we eat fresh meals and you’ve come to the right place for good food because the doctor acts Facebook page YouTube channel and website have hundreds of amazing recipes you can even sneak these delicious foods in the diet of your kids and yes your husband’s if your wife watching today increase fiber intake fiber is great for the gut it’s great for the heart and those with a higher fiber diet tend to have lower blood pressure we talked about this before lower sodium I don’t know where you’re at on the salt side but sometimes I salt my food before I taste it my mom used to get really mad at me and she would say don’t add salt until you taste it and it really is a good habit if you consume salt which I would minimize I recommend consuming a high mineral salt such as a Celtic salt maybe a Himalayan salt one of those salts that have additional minerals other than sodium but in general you’re better off lowering sodium I do have a favorite condiment that sort of replaces my sodium I don’t even know if it’s called a condom at whatever it is it’s called herb Amer and it’s a blend of organic spices that are sort of marinated with whole mineral sea salt I’ve been using it for 20 years and its really really amazing lower sodium and increase potassium there’s the standard-bearer for potassium bananas but there are other low sugar sources such as greens I mentioned celery’s amazing watermelon and it’s and it’s rind every fruit and vegetable has potassium oranges do two bananas just get all the credit for potassium get more of that it naturally reduces sodium and helps your extracellular fluid be really really healthy staying hydrated is absolutely key one of the areas you need to fight focus on four blood pressure is your kidneys so many people have kidney issues they don’t even know about so staying hydrated with pure water certainly with teas and herbal infusions and there are many great fermented beverages we’ve talked about and of course bone broth portion control can be important however I would also say that the time you eat is absolutely critical I’ve seen people lower their blood pressure by simply extending their daily fast because the morning meal is called break fast or breakfast but what if you had break fast for lunch what if you had it for dinner I’ve seen people eat the same amount of food in a smaller period of time and have lower blood pressure that’s pretty awesome folks I’m Jordan Reuben here on ancient medicine today brought to you by dr. axe com
