Natural Remedies for High Blood Pressure and High Cholesterol
Holistic Ways to Improve your Heart Health and Digestion
Cell salts offer a body-friendly and natural way to help improve blood flow and support your liver and digestive system. In combination with healthier eating and exercise habits, they can assist you in returning to an active and more vigorous lifestyle.
Defining High Blood Pressure & High Cholesterol
Every time your heart beats, it pumps blood to all parts of your body. The force of the blood flow against your arteries is called blood pressure. This pressure is at its highest when the heart beats (systolic pressure) and falls when your heart is at rest (diastolic pressure). Both numbers are important and are usually mentioned with the systolic pressure preceding the diastolic pressure such as 120/80 or 120 over 80. The ideal blood pressure levels are below 120/80. When the levels reach 140/90, you have high blood pressure, a condition that can lead to serious cardiovascular diseases such as a heart attack or stroke. HBP can also damage your arteries and kidneys.
Cholesterol is a waxy substance in your blood needed to build healthy cells. There are different types of cholesterol: Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or "bad" cholesterol transports cholesterol particles through the body. High-density lipoprotein (HDL) or "good" cholesterol gathers excess cholesterol and carries it back to your liver. The liver regulates our cholesterol levels. However, when the amount of "bad" cholesterol becomes too high for the liver to manage, fatty deposits start to clog the arteries and decrease the flow of blood. High cholesterol often leads to high blood pressure and the risk of heart disease or a stroke.
Cell Salts Prod the Body's Own Healing Propensities
Cell salts provide small portions of vital minerals that are just enough to stimulate the body's innate healing abilities.
Calcarea Fluorica increases the elasticity of cells and strengthens the walls of arteries. Kali Phosphoricum supports the nervous system and improves circulation. Silicea strengthens the connective tissues of blood vessels. In combination or alteration, the three cell salt remedies provide natural, side-effect-free support for increased blood flow and improved circulation.
Natrum Phosphoricum helps digest fat and balance ph levels. Natrum Sulphuricum supports the liver in filtering and detoxifying the blood and helps remove excess water form the body. Both natrum cell salts improve digestion and naturally support healthy cholesterol levels.
