Stop Taking Blood Pressure Medications with Your Doctors Approval


I have been swallowing three varieties of blood pressure pills for 10 years. In another month, I expect to be off of them entirely. And that's with my doctor's approval.

Some months ago, I was introduced to a relatively new medical science called glycobiology.

Very briefly...the science centers around eight simple sugars. These are not sugars diabetics must avoid. They are food for our human cells.

Think of these simple sugars as you would oil in your car. The oil doesn't make your car run. However, without it you are headed for a serious breakdown.

Simple sugars function much the same way in your body as oil does in your car. They do not provide healing. They do not make your body run. But without them, you're headed for a serious breakdown. And that's spelled D-I-S-E-A-S-E.

HERE IS WHAT THE SCIENCE IS DOING FOR ME

After reading about a number of people who were able to get off the blood pressure medication when simple sugars were added to their diet, I decided to give it a try. I had been on the simple sugars for several months so it was time for an experiment.

Without asking my doctor, which is probably a no no, I starting cutting my pills in half. This wasn't altogether naughty because I have a BP monitor and kept close watch on what was happening.

I noticed that over a period of several weeks my BP readings gradually kept getting lower. In fact, several times they dipped below normal.

I talked to my doctor and confessed what I had done. I then told him I'd like to wean myself completely off the drugs.

Fortunately, he already knew about the science of simple sugars (glyconutritionals) and was willing to experiment with me. He immediately took me off one of my medications, which was a dollar a pill variety. That alone was worth a small drop in blood pressure.

He will gradually wean me off my other two medications. So within a month or two, I should be rid of them. I don't know about you, but anytime I can avoid taking drugs without compromising my health, I'm among the first to get in line.

WHY DO SIMPLE SUGARS WORK?

Without getting into a lot of technical stuff, the eight simple sugars are absolutely essential to the communication system of your body cells. When this communication system is working properly, cells can communicate their need for resources such as protein, hormones, etc. The result is healthy cells which create healthy tissue create healthy bodies.

You might ask, "Well how does that work in lowering Blood Pressure?"

The best answer I can give you is, "Pretty doggone well, thank you." Other than that, you'll have to dig out the science on your own. A good place to start is http://glycoscience.org. However, be warned that this is a technically oriented web site.

If you would like to continue monitoring my road to drug freedom, click the web site link at the bottom of this article. It will provide more non-technical information about the science and provide you with updates on my progress.

Also, don't hesitate to mention the science of glycobiology to your doctor. He or she may not have heard of it. This isn't hard to understand when you consider the science involves a food, not a drug. And even though the results are often amazing when applied to someone's diet, the fact that it is a food passes below the radar of many doctors.

Just remember, you can take the simple sugars without a prescription. They are non-toxic and do not interact with any drugs. In other words, they are totally safe.

You may even want to start the simple sugars on your own and give your body time to recover from years of simple sugar starvation. Then, after a month or two, ask your doctor if you can lower your dosage with the ultimate goal of becoming drug-free.

And speaking of monitoring your BP, excuse me a moment while I check my own.

Yup...hanging in there. It registered 115/69. Scouts honor.

I think I'm ready for another reduction in my medication. Except my doctor is on vacation.
