ATTENTION Hypertension and Asthma patients!
When your doctors prescribes you medicine, usually he omits the food interactions with the medicine.
Anyone taking high blood pressure medicines, statin drugs, anxiety, asthma pump, anti depressants needs to understand that these medicines are BETA BLOCKERS ! If your condition has anything to do with the heart, lungs, liver, kidney or brain, then your doctor may have prescribed you a beta blocker
What is a Beta Blocker ? a blocking agent that reduce your blood pressure. Remember, your blood pressure is a symptom to the root cause of a condition. Beta blockers work by blocking the effects of adrenaline receptors so when you take this drug, the heart beats slower. Many people who take these don’t know the side effects can cause heart failure in patients with heart problems, asthma hyperthyroidism, atherosclerosis or kidney disease.
How can a heart medication that’s purpose is to reduce blood pressure have the side effect of heart failure? Lol.
Here’s more Facts: The biggest food interaction of these type of drugs(beta blockers or diuretics) is MEAT!!
Yes Meat…. Fish Pork Beef Chicken!
Meat increases the drugs effects and can cause dizziness and low blood pressure. This means your heart rate can drop so low and cause heart failure or sudden death. Research this!
Most of these doctors know this and that’s why they tell you that you will be on HBP medicine for life. Huh? Yea, you will either increase your dosage or upgrade to a stronger drug when it proves ineffectiveness. Plus, beta blockers can’t easily be withdrawn because sudden withdrawal may worsen angina (chest pain) and cause heart attacks.
Now I’m not trying to scare meat eaters who take beta blockers and diuretics but you must be warned and become aware of this body signal.
“When you’re lying down and then stand up, gravity pulls the blood down to the feet. Then the blood pressure to the brain drops and you feel dizzy and faintish. Normally the reason you don’t faint because your blood vessels constrict raising resistance, then raises the blood pressure”
But when you take these medicines after you eat meat and lay down.
You may fall back down
I urge you to use natural supplements!
