In 2015  heart disease caused almost 25% of deaths—almost one in every four—in the United States. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. More than half of the deaths due to heart disease in 2015 were in men. Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease. But women aren’t immune either.  As women enter menopause and then post menopause, their risk of heart disease shoots up just as high as that for men.

So what to do?

Address your stress first!

This is by far the root cause of many heart diseases cases.  Stress puts a burden on the heart and one’s whole physical and emotionally well being. When we are super stressed we are taxing our bodies beyond their recovery abilities. Often times we don’t even realize we are overdoing it or being over done.  Learn to say NO.  That’s a complete sentence and doesn’t need justification especially when your health and well being are in question.

Most often emotional stress is the culprit to the manifestation of high blood pressure. And high blood is the biggest risk factor to heart disease including angina, arteriosclerosis, and cardiac arrest or heart attacks.  Thus lowering your blood pressure if you have hypertension is imperative.

Here are 5 simple and natural ways to lower your blood pressure:

Eat Garlic

Garlic is one of the easiest and arguably tastiest ways to lower your blood pressure.  Eating this raw as a condiment like garlic sauce or juiced along with kale greens and beets is the best and most powerful way to take it.  Cooking garlic lessens it’s health benefits because enzymes are killed and some of the nutritional value is lost.  So mix it with tasty sweet beets, carrots and half a stalk of celery in your blender or juicer.  You will see a significant improvement within just a week.

Up your Magnesium Intake

Oh mamma magnesium! I call it the queen of minerals because it’s responsible for THOUSANDS of vital processes in your body. Every cell needs it to sustain life and balance hydration.  It will help to heal arterial walls and calm them allowing for a lowering of systolic pressure. Most often those with heart disease struggle with anxiety, pressure to perform, and overall nervous imbalances so magnesium is a very CALMING nutrient that relaxes the muscles, arteries, and all vessels and organ systems in the body. 1000mg of magnesium citrate would be a good place to start. Begin with less and notice your tolerance level.  Splitting the dose in 2 or 3 over the day will help avoid any possibility of loose stools. Taken before bed it will help you have a deeper more relaxed sleep cycle. Happy dreaming :)



Drink coconut water

Coconut water is rich in minerals and specifically POTASSIUM. And potassium as an electrolyte will help balance fluids in your body and eliminate what isn’t needed.  Some heart disease sufferers tend to retain water and that can be because of too much sodium and also not enough potassium. So cutting down on salt and upping your potassium by drinking coconut water , eating more bananas and drinking tart cherry juice will help normalize your fluid balance.  Drink up and don’t fear about bloating when you do.  Water retention is not caused by drinking water . It’s more the amount of salt you have each day and your overall diet and digestive system state.


Drink Beet Juice

You can’t beat a beet! Yes bad joke but it got you smiling right? Researchers found that drinking a glass of beet juice can lower blood pressure by 5 -10 points just after half hour of ingesting it! That is super powerful medicine and tasty too.  Juice beets along with celery, ginger, garlic and kale for a super blood loving power drink.  Beets have nitric oxide, or natural nitrates that relax the blood vessels and dilates them, which helps the blood flow more easily and lowers blood pressure.  They also contain betaine which is a heart friendly amino acid and helps to nourish the heart and lower the pressure as well.


Take Devil’s Claw:

Don’t let the devil name scare you away, this herb is proven to heal the heart with it’s anti inflammatory properties. Heart disease as many other illnesses create inflammation in the body. So this herb helps to heal systemic inflammation right in the arteries where it counts most for heart disease sufferers.  It also lowers the blood pressure helping you prevent the progression of inflammation and it’s degenerative effects on the body. Hence the name Devil’s claw, it’s a hot tamale that can handle the heat of inflammatory conditions. * Please consult your professional health practitioner before dosing and taking any herb or natural medicine.*
