When my grandmother passed away in 1973, she was 83 years old. Remarkably, her (systolic) blood pressure was 180 (mm Hg), however she was not worried, because her doctors told her (in 1970) that her blood pressure was "normal for her age". In 1970 her medical doctors said, "Blood pressure increases every year, by about one degree. The normal (systolic) blood pressure at age 20 is approximately 120. At age 40 it is approximately 140. And at age 80 it is approximately 180. So, for her age 80, her blood pressure of 180 was normal.
Fast forward 50 years, and I wonder if you guys have noticed how today's medical schools and medical doctors want us to be on drugs, for the rest of our lives, if our systolic blood pressure is higher than 130. However, can we really rely on them, when they also keep making false claims like "Cholesterol is bad for you", and "Egg yolks are bad for you"... and, when they also misdiagnose many medical conditions, including cancer, irritable bowel syndrome, urinary tract infection, ear infection, and stroke?
1) I've always wondered why my grandmother was never medicated.
2) Further, how do we know for sure, that the lower limit of hypertension should be 140, as opposed to 180 mm Hg?
3) Further, are you guys convinced that the best tools for the management of hypertension are provided by Big Pharma?
4) Well, as to my body, it's going to be my choice, and I'm going to stick with natural remedies.
5) I hope this will help somebody!
