A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Pulmonary Hypertension
I had a question the other day about pulmonary hypertension.
Pulmonary hypertension is a life-threatening condition that gets worse over time, but treatments can help your symptoms so you can live better with the disease.
Having pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) means you have high blood pressure in your arteries going from your lungs to your heart.
It’s different from having regular high blood pressure.
With PAH, the tiny arteries in your lungs become narrow or blocked.
It’s harder for blood to flow through them, which raises the blood pressure in your lungs.
Your heart has to work harder to pump blood through those arteries, and after a while the heart muscle gets weak.
Eventually, it can lead to heart failure.
You may not notice any symptoms for a while.
The main one is shortness of breath when you’re active.
It usually starts slowly and gets worse as time goes on.
You may notice you can’t do some of the things you used to without getting winded.
Pulmonary hypertension varies from person to person, so your treatment plan will be specific to your needs.
To deal with pulmonary hypertension it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily to hydrate and flush toxins.
*Use cayenne, fennel, hawthorn berries, parsley, and rosemary.
*Hops and valerian root are good for calming your nerves.
*Drink 3 cups of suma tea daily.
*Follow a strict salt-free diet.
*Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, like apples, asparagus, bananas, broccoli, cabbage, cantaloupe, eggplant, garlic, grapefruit, green leafy vegetables, melons, peas, prunes, raisins, squash, and sweet potatoes.
*Include fresh “live” juices in your diet. The following juices are healthful: beet, carrot, celery, currant, cranberry, citrus fruit, parsley, spinach, and watermelon.
*Eat grains like brown rice, buckwheat, millet, and oats.
*Take 2 tablespoons of flaxseed oil daily.
*Avoid all animal fats. Bacon, beef, bouillons, chicken liver, corned beef, dairy products, gravies, pork, sausage, and smoked or processed meats are prohibited. The only acceptable animal foods are broiled whitefish and skinless turkey or chicken, and these should be eaten in moderation only. Get protein from vegetable sources, grains, and legumes instead.
*Avoid foods like aged cheeses, aged meats, anchovies, avocados, chocolate, fava beans, pickled herring, sherry, sour cream, wine, and yogurt.
*Avoid all alcohol, caffeine, and tobacco.
*Keep your weight down.
*Get regular light to moderate exercise.
*Be sure to get enough sleep.
*Don’t take antihistamines.
*Avoid all artificial sweeteners.
*Increase stress and relaxation techniques: yoga, meditation, prayer, deep breathing, etc. Consider energy medicine.
*Increase fresh air, sunshine, connect with nature.
*Consider an arterial cleansing program.
*Monitor blood pressure, cholesterol, triglyceride and homocysteine levels.
*Decrease toxic exposures of all kinds (food and environmental).
*Decrease “hidden allergies”.
*Understand your medications and possible side effects.
*Understand your family history and address any concerns. Practice preventive measures.
*Investigate possible connection to dental procedures; consult a holistic dentist.
