Review of Lisinopril High Blood Pressure Medicine (Is it safe Prinivil Tensopril Zestril hipril CHF)
 
08:52
This is my personal review of the high blood pressure medication medicine Lisinopril. Lisinopril also is used to treat congestive heart failure CHF, medication after a heart attack and stroke. Is it dangerous safe to take? I have had a few comments stating that Lisinopril is bad for you and will give you bad side effects. What is the alternative? I'm not saying you shouldn't research your medicine and try to get off of it but you have to consider the 2 evils. Would you rather have a dry cough and dizziness or high blood pressure that can give you a stroke, wear your organs out, and eventually kill you. If you have been prescribed the medicine talk to your doctor and try another medicine, try to lower it by natural means WHILE still taking the medicine. Please just don't quit cold turkey because of something you read on the internet. Take it slowly.

How I Stopped 3 Blood Pressure Medications: Wheat-Free
 
07:43
“I’m convinced that it (wheat) is not human food. These grasses are not what we evolved eating.” Schedule at http://MetabolicCoaching.NET. Local & Online Distance Metabolic Coaching Available. Join us for our monthly webinar or weekly local courses! And Mark says, “I’m real happy that I don’t eat wheat any more. I recommend it to everybody!” Why??? Mark Hall is an MD, a pediatrician. A couple of years ago I mentioned to him that our family was “wheat-free” and “gluten free” because of my sons allergies. Since he’s a pediatrician, I though this might benefit some of his patients, children with chronic allergies, eczema and asthma. From that point, Dr. Hall started doing his own research into the benefits of a wheat-free lifestyle with amazing results. He was able to get off of all three of his high blood pressure medications. And 20 years of chronic back pain finally stopped. How long did this amazing health transformation take? “About 6 weeks,” Mark recalls. As a pediatrician, Dr. Hall says, “I think I’ve always thought nutrition was important to some degree, and I’ve frequently told patients that. But I really had no idea (how important),” because there is not that much training on diet in medical school. “I ate reasonably healthy, meaning getting some fruits and vegetables in my diet but I didn’t pay any attention beyond that.” And then things changed… Mark and I had a short conversation about our family being wheat-free and gluten-free. What did he think? He says, “I thought it was a little odd when you first mentioned it (being a wheat-free house), because I hadn’t hear anything about that… But it made me curious. So I looked into it and picked a copy of the book ’Wheat Belly.’ It was very convincing and illuminating.“ “We are all at risk for heart disease. And it sounds like if you eat wheat: if you’re going to have a heart attack, you’re going to have it sooner, if you’re going to get Alzheimer’s disease, you’re going to get it sooner - if you’r eating something (wheat) that is that inflammatory.” What happened when he stopped eating wheat? CHRONIC BACK PAIN - GONE Dr. Hall says, “So I decided to stop eating wheat. And about 6 weeks later, I noticed the back pain I had had for decades was easing up, and just went away entirely. I had had a couple of minor car wrecks several decades ago. I wasn’t seriously injured, but i jacked up my back. And it hurt a little bit every day - sometimes quite a bit. But it just stopped! That constant input of something that was causing inflammation (wheat and gluten), having had it withdrawn finally allowed it to stop being irritated.” HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE - GONE And he continues, “But then I noticed my blood pressure was dropping. Every day I was at work… I would have one of my nurses take my blood pressure, and it was always elevated. I was on three different medications for it. But it was still, on a good day, 150/90… I was just willing it to be lower. I didn’t want to be on more medication. But it started, once again, 6 or 7 weeks after not eating wheat, it started dropping more and more - like systolic in the 90’s and diastolic in the 50’s. And it took me another week to put it together. I stopped taking my (blood pressure) medicines altogether. And the systolics were between 100 and 120, and diastolic anywhere between 60 and 80. And it stayed that way.” So what caused Mark’s 20 years of back pain to resolve? What caused his chronic blood pressure requiring 3 medications to resolve? In his word, it was “All from not eating wheat.” Although it might sound “inconvenient” to eat a wheat-free, gluten-free diet in our society where hamburgers, sandwiches and bread are everywhere, Mark says, “It’s not convenient to have back pain every day. It’s not convenient to have to put medications into your body to counteract the effects of that wheat - like blood pressure medications, or whatever.” Who does Dr. Hall believe could benefit from a wheat-free diet like we teach at Metabolic Coaching? “Anybody that’s breathing.” That about sums it up!

How to Reduce High Blood Pressure Without Medications in Only 5 Minutes
 
01:54
Point number one This is not even a point, but a line. It passes behind the earlobe to the middle of the clavicle. This line should not be pressed, not massaged, but very slowly pampered almost imperceptibly with a hand movement from top to bottom, barely touching the tips of his fingers. Repeat this procedure 10 times on one side, and another round on the other side. Point number two This point is on the face part at the earlobe level, at a distance of half a centimetre from the ear in the direction towards the nose. This point should be massaged with the fingertips for about 1 minute on each side of the face, respectively. You may push hard, but without causing any pain. It is important that you feel a bit of pressure on that point.

I would like to thank the video contributors: Rizalyn Joy Gadugdug Maria Salvacion Gonzales Yasmin Hashmi Artem Shestakov And Babar Hayatrana Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors or commonly known as ACE Inhibitors. This pharmaceutical drug is used to treat congestive heart failure, high blood pressure and many other medical conditions. Research and clinical studies prove it to be a very effective drug class for many, as it works by causing the blood vessels to become enlarged or dilated, and thus causing a reduction in the blood pressure. This lowering of the blood pressure makes it easier for the heart to pump blood and it can improve the function of a failing heart. In the United States, 10 ACE inhibitors are in use: Ramipril (Altace) Enalapril (Vasotec, Epaned) Quinapril (Accupril) Captopril (Capoten) Benazepril (Lotensin) Lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril) Fosinopril (Monopril) Moexipril (Univasc) Trandolapril (Mavik) Perindopril (Aceon) NOTE...that the brand names of all of these above end with the suffix “pril”. NOW.. let’s take a closer look at this drug class, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, these drugs are helpful in treating heart, blood vessel, and kidney problems... Mechanism of Action: The human body is an amazing organism…In order to regulate water and blood pressure, our body follows special mechanisms. For example when the blood pressure drops too low, the kidneys release renin into the bloodstream. Renin then reacts with a protein called angiotensinogen that is produced by the liver. As a result, they form angiotensin I. Then another reaction converts angiotensin I to angiotensin II, with the help of angiotensin-converting enzyme found in the respiratory system. This whole mechanism is known as Renin-angiotensin system (RAS). Angiotensin II is a powerful substance. It circulates around the body in the bloodstream and induces several changes on the cardiovascular system. Such as stimulating adrenal cortex to release adolsterone and Constricting or narrowing down the blood vessels around the body. Aldosterone increases the reabsorption of water and sodium in the tubules of the kidneys. As a result, The volume of the blood and the concentration of salt in the blood increase leading to high blood pressure. The constriction of blood vessels results in high pressure inside the vessels, which also means an increase in blood pressure. Both of these events cause the heart to exert more pressure while pumping blood into the main arteries. Hence, it reverses the low blood pressure but it can also lead to other cardiovascular disorders if it persists for a long time. ACE inhibitors reduce the impact of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) on the blood pressure by inhibiting the angiotensin converting enzyme. As a result, The conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II is slowed down which brings about several changes in the cardiovascular system. The rate of water reabsorption in the kidneys drops and so volume of blood decreases. And the blood vessels relax and become dilated. Both of these factors “reduce the work load on the heart,” (this phrase is a simple explanation that the nurse might give to her patient to explain how the ACE inhibitor

FDA recalls heart medications over cancer concerns
 
01:56
FDA recalls heart medications over cancer concerns (RNN) – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has announced a recall of several drugs that contain the active ingredient valsartan, which is used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. According to the FDA, an impurity called N-nitrosodimethylamine, or NDMA, was found in the recalled drugs. The FDA called NDMA a "probable human carcinogen." "The presence of NDMA was unexpected and is thought to be related to changes in the way the active substance was manufactured," the FDA said in its Friday announcement. The recall doesn't include all products containing valsartan; valsartan medications made by Major Pharmaceuticals, Solco Healthcare and Teva Pharmaceuticals Industries Ltd. are being recalled, along with valsartan/hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) from Solco Healthcare and Teva Pharmaceuticals Industries Ltd. "We have carefully assessed the valsartan-containing medications sold in the United States, and we've found that the valsartan sold by these specific companies does not meet our safety standards. This is why we've asked these companies to take immediate action to protect patients," said Janet Woodcock, M.D., director of the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. The FDA said users of the recalled drugs should continue taking them until they've found a replacement, and that they should consult their health care professionals to discuss plans for their ongoing treatment.

Lisinopril - Things you should know before taking Lisinopril
 
02:44
Learn important information on Lisinopril at http://www.lisinopril.us/ Lisinopril is a medication that is generally used for high blood pressure and congestive heart failure. It can also be prescribed after a heart attack. It comes from a group of drugs called ace inhibitors. It is usually taken once a day and can be taken with or without food. If you are using this medication you should keep a daily log of your blood pressure. Take this to your doctor, so they can review this information and adjust your medication accordingly. If you are just beginning to use this medication, be careful when you wake up in the morning. Don't get up out of bed to quickly, you may find yourself getting dizzy and could faint. Get up slowly and in steps, this will allow your body to adjust. The main side effect of this medication is dizziness. This is caused by hypotension, which means that your blood pressure is too low. If you find yourself becoming dizzy, contact your doctor so they can adjust your medication. You could experience nausea, vomiting and even diarrhea, when you begin using lisinopril. These symptoms are not uncommon, as your body adjusts to the new medication. If they persist, you should contact your physician. Some of the potential side effects of this medication are an increase in potassium. Supplements that have potassium in them should be avoided, unless recommended by your doctor. If your potassium levels become too high, it can cause arrhythmia. Read the labels of all the foods that you eat and look for potassium. For example, some salt substitutes use potassium and that could be problematic. If you are taking this medication and you become pregnant, you should switch to another blood pressure medication immediately. The use of this medication in the second or third trimester can damage or kill your unborn child. See your doctor and have them find a new medication for your high blood pressure. A rare, but serious side effect of this mediation is angioedema. This reaction can happen at any time, even after years of successfully taking lisinopril. You can recognize this reaction by a buildup of fluid in your face, throat and lips. It could be life threatening. If this should happen, call 911 or immediately go to an emergency room. This reaction is quite rare; however anyone using this medication should be aware of this reaction, in case it should happen to them. This information is purely for educational purposes only. Do not make any changes to your medication without consulting your physician. For more information on lisinopril, go to www.lisinopril.us http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LpICMP9ps9g

FDA recalls blood pressure, heart failure medications due to potential cancer risk

Congestive Heart Failure
 
14:36
Congestive Heart Failure Congestive heart failure is sometimes simply called “heart failure”. It is the leading cause of hospitalization in people over 65 affecting about 670,000 Americans annually. Currently nearly 6 million persons in the United States have a diagnosis of heart failure. Heart failure doesn’t mean that the heart has “stopped” working, but, that its pumping ability is weaker than normal. With heart failure, the pressure in the heart increases because the blood moves through the heart and body at a slower rate. As this happens the chambers of the heart may slowly change by stretching to hold more blood to pump through the body or by becoming stiff and thickened. This helps to keep the blood moving for a while, but eventually the heart muscle walls become weakened and then unable to pump efficiently. The next thing that usually happens is the kidneys respond by causing the body to retain fluid (water) and salt. The body becomes congested as this fluid builds up in the arms, legs, ankles, feet, lungs, or other organs. This condition is described now as “congestive heart failure”. Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), is a usually a chronic illness that affects the chambers of the heart. There are four chambers in the heart. The upper half of the heart is known as the atria which is divided into 2 sides, the left and the right side, and the other lower half is the left and right ventricles. A healthy normal heart is a strong, muscular pump somewhat bigger than a clenched hand. It pumps blood continuously through the circulatory system. The right atria takes in deoxygenated blood from the systemic circulation and sends it back out to the lungs through the right ventricles where the blood gets to be oxygenated. Oxygenated blood leaves the lungs, travels to the left atrium, then on to the left ventricles, which pumps it to the systemic circulation to provide oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the different organs and tissues. The heart pumps blood to the lungs and to all the body’s different organs and tissues by a sequence of highly organized contractions of the four chambers. For the heart to function properly, the four chambers must beat in an organized way. With heart failure, the heart muscles becomes weak for various reasons, making the heart slowly lose the capacity to pump enough blood throughout the body to meet the body’s demand of oxygen and nutrients. As the heart’s pumping turns out to be less effective, blood may back up into different zones of the body. Fluid may build up in the lungs, liver, gastrointestinal tract, and the arms and legs. Thus, it is called Congestive Heart Failure (CHF). There are two fundamental issues in congestive heart failure: Systolic dysfunction – when the heart can’t pump enough blood supply to meet the body’s demand. Diastolic dysfunction – when the heart cannot accept all the blood being sent in. Sadly, many people suffer with both systolic and diastolic heart failure. Causes: CHF is often a chronic condition, yet it may come on all of a sudden. It can be brought about by various heart problems. The condition may affect just the right side or just the left half of the heart. But more often, both sides of the heart are involved. The most common causes of CHF are: Coronary artery disease (CAD) – a condition wherein cholesterol and other types of fatty substances blocks or narrows the arteries that supply the heart with blood. This can weaken the heart muscle over time or suddenly. High blood pressure – persistent/not well controlled/untreated hypertension forces the heart to pump against higher pressure, causing the heart muscles to weaken over time. Less common causes: Heart valves disease – heart valves that are not properly working by being too narrow or leaky Endocarditis or myocarditis – infection causing inflammation of the heart muscles Arrhythmias Heart attack Excessive use of alcohol or drugs Diabetes Being obese or overweight High blood cholesterol Heart muscle disease of unknown cause Kidney conditions that increases blood pressure and fluid buildup Other medical conditions such as thyroid diseases or anemia

New Life Chiropractic - What Are The Side Effects of Blood Pressure Medication?
 
02:51
New Life Chiropractic, Rocklin Do you want to experience life changing results? According to the American Heart Health Association, 95% of the time the cause of high blood pressure is unknown. But, they’re just not looking at the right place. We do know a lot of its causes. A lot of times your doctor will say: "Well, we don’t know what’s causing your high blood pressure." Then, once you are diagnosed, your doctor will want to prescribe medication. According to a recent report in the Journal of American Medical Association, hypertension should be treated with medications only if the patient’s systolic pressure is above 150. This is an increase of 10 points above the previous recommendation. The report is based on an analyses of over 30 years of clinical studies which showed that lowering below 150 over 90 does not offer any additional benefits in reducing the risk of heart attack, heart failure, and stroke. So, for 30 years basically, doctors have been prescribing medications to people that did nothing (those that had a systolic pressure between 140 and 150). Now, if you’re 190 or 200 or something higher than that, that’s an acute condition. We got to fix that, but that ten points represented over a million people that didn’t need to be on medication and were exposed to the side effects for no reason. THE MOST COMMON SIDE EFFECTS OF BLOOD PRESSURE MEDICATION: 1. Weakness 2. Erection problems 3. Cold feet 4. Depression 5. Skin rashes 6. Dizziness 7. Constipation 8. Headaches 9.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Heart failures can be due to an inability to PUMP effectively during systole - SYSTOLIC heart failure, or inability to FILL properly during diastole - DIASTOLIC heart failure. Heart failure can be right-sided or left-sided . In systolic heart failure, ventricular contraction is compromised. This may be caused by any condition that weakens the heart muscle: - Coronary artery disease/Ischemic HD: - Dilated cardiomyopathy - Hypertension: - Valvular heart disease: Damage to the valves, such as stenosis The effectiveness of ventricular contraction is measured by the EJECTION fraction. The normal range of the ejection fraction is between 50 and 70%. In systolic heart failure, it drops below 40%. In DIASTOLIC heart failure, the ventricle is filled with LESS blood. This may be because it is smaller than usual, or it has lost the ability to relax. The ejection fraction may be normal, but the blood output is reduced. The ejection fraction is therefore commonly used to differentiate between SYSTOLIC and DIASTOLIC dysfunction. Examples of conditions that can lead to diastolic heart failure include: - Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy - Restrictive cardiomyopathy: - Hypertension Regardless of being systolic or diastolic in nature, left-sided heart failures share a common outcome: LESS blood pumped out from the heart. As a result, blood flows back to the lungs, where it came from, causing CONGESTION and INCREASED pulmonary pressure. As this happens, fluid leaks from the blood vessels into the lung tissue, resulting in PULMONARY EDEMA, a hallmark of left-sided heart failure. Accumulation of fluid in the alveoli IMPEDES the gas exchange process, resulting in respiratory symptoms such as shortness of breath, which worsens when lying down, and chest crackles. RIGHT-sided heart failure is most commonly caused by LEFT-sided heart failure. This is because the INCREASED pulmonary pressure caused by left-sided heart failure makes it harder for the right ventricle to pump INTO the pulmonary artery. This results in SYSTOLIC dysfunction. In compensation, the right ventricle grows thicker to pump harder, which reduces the space available for filling, eventually leading to DIASTOLIC dysfunction. Other common causes of right-sided heart failure include chronic lung diseases which also raise pulmonary blood pressure. As the right ventricle pumps out less blood, the blood, again, backs up to where it came from, and in this case, the SYSTEMIC circulation. This results in abnormal fluid accumulation in various organs, most notable in the feet when standing, sacral area when lying down, abdominal cavity and liver. The fluid status can be assessed by examining the distension level of the jugular vein. Heart failure is usually managed by treating the underlying condition, together with a combination of drugs. ACE inhibitors, beta blockers are used to reduce blood pressure in patients with systolic dysfunction. Diuretics are used to reduce water retention.

Congestive Heart Failure Symptoms -- When to See a Doctor and a Secret to Prevent this Disease!
 
06:43
http://utahtexans.com/ Click on the link above for a free video guide to dietary supplements and alternative medicine! Heart failure can kill you. In this video you will discover the symptoms, when to see a doctor and how to prevent it! Having car failure is bad, same thing with relationship failure, but heart failure is by far the worst. Your body is made up of all these organs and cells that have different jobs and roles. Just like employees need cash to go to work these cells and organs need blood. Blood doesn't have a mind of its own so it needs something to push it and that is the heart. With this condition the heart still works, but it's like an employee working on a late Friday afternoon. It just doesn't do that good of a job. This is why some of the symptoms have to do with lack of energy or shortness of breath. Yes your mind also needs blood so if there is a little bit of failure with the heart can you guess what is going to happen? Yea, someone probably will have a harder time concentrating. Also as the heart starts to slow down kidneys have a harder time doing their job and so fluid starts to build up in tissues. This could be swelling in the feet, angles, stomach area and some weight gain. Next up a person could experience a faster heartbeat, it could be irregular and there could be some chest pains. I know what you might be thinking and that is when should I see doctor. According to the American Heart Association if you feel severe weakness like you're about to faint then it could be serious and you should see a doctor. Other potential serious signals could be a sudden severe shortness of breath and coughing up a pink fluid. Lastly would be chest pains and an unusual heartbeat. You probably should seek professional medical attention if you feel for a second that you have a serious health problem. It's also true that taking an aspirin if you feel any of these symptoms could save your life. Aspirin helps stop inflammation and blood clots, which helps blood flow better. If you're interested in preventing congestive heart failure it's best to look at what causes it. Mostly this is high blood pressure, diabetes, being overweight and blockage with arteries. Making changes in your life such as not smoking tobacco, getting exercise, managing stress and eating healthier food can all reduce the odds of heart failure. The next thing is drugs. Due to the fact heart disease is the number 1 killer just in the United States the amount of money being made through prescription drugs is huge. The bad news with the prescription medicine is that they can cost a lot of money, have side effects and create free radicals that cause damage. The good news is that there are herbal remedies that can really help the heart that are safer, less expensive and don't give off free radicals and bad side effects. One idea is policosanol. In a study at the University of Bonn in Germany researchers tested this herb with people that had high cholesterol levels that clog up arteries. Scientists gave 10 to 20 mg a day to these patients and the results were amazing. It lowered total cholesterol by around 19 percent and LDL cholesterol by 24%. To get policosanol the best idea is through a supplement. The problem with supplements is that the industry is unregulated so it's easy for companies to make crappy products. In fact Consumer Labs a prestigious organization last year tested all the top brands and they discovered 40% of them had problems. This includes mislabeling and even some harmful ingredients. To help you in using these products I've created a free report and video guide. It shares what to look for in this products, what to avoid as well as simplifies herbal remedies and more. It's completely free and you can learn more by clicking on the link http://utahtexans.com/.
