How The Full Body Cleanse Can Help Lower Your Blood Pressure

mom-and-daughter-cooking

One of the most common questions we get asked at Dherbs is whether or not the Full Body Cleanse can help lower blood pressure. Since high blood pressure affects 1 in every 3 American adults, it makes sense that we get asked if the cleanse can help. The short answer is: yes, it does, but the person has to be willing to actively make lifestyle changes and follow the cleanse and diet regimen.

 

It is hard to attribute high blood pressure to one particular cause, but a poor diet filled with a lot of salt is near the top of the list. On average, Americans consume over 3,400mg of sodium per day, which exceeds the recommended 2,300mg amount. For those with high blood pressure, the recommended daily amount of sodium is 1,500mg. When someone with high blood pressure is cleansing, the amount of salt he/she eats is extremely minute, which helps naturally lower the body’s sodium content. Just to give you a relatable figure, 1 teaspoon of salt equals 2,300mg of sodium and 1,500mg of sodium is just over ½ teaspoon.

 

Should You Take High Blood Pressure Medication While Cleansing?

It is not the policy of Dherbs.com to recommend, suggest, insist, imply, tell, or instruct any individual to change the dosage of or stop taking any prescribed medication(s) while taking herbs, participating in a Cleanse, or at any other time. Any decision about changing your dosage of or ceasing the use of pharmaceutical-grade drug(s), while taking herbs or participating in a cleanse, that have been prescribed by a doctor or other medical practitioner is a decision that can only be made by you, based on your own free will. Please contact us by phone (866-434-3727) or email us (info@dherbs.com) with any questions.

 

In the Beginning of the Cleanse:

When someone with high blood pressure begins the Full Body Cleanse, it is better to completely stay away from salt, even if it is sea salt. The reason for this is because you body has to reduce the amount of sodium that is in it. During this process is attempting to naturally regulate blood pressure. This means that the person may experience dips or spikes in blood pressure. The important thing is to remain calm and realize that the body is relearning what it knew how to do prior to taking medication.

 

Herbs That Pull Sodium & Processed Foods From Body:

The formulas in the Full Body Cleanse which are most beneficial to people with high blood pressure are the Blood & Lymphatic, Cardiovascular, and Colon & Digestive Tract formulas. These help cleanse your digestive tract, your cardiovascular system, and your blood. An ill-functioning cardiovascular system can create that elevated pressure that is necessary to pump blood throughout the body.

 

Go For Potassium Rich Foods:

Since you are going to be on a raw foods diet (only eating raw fruits, vegetables, and raw nuts & seeds) while cleansing, make sure you get your fair share of potassium-rich foods to remove sodium from the body. Foods that are high in potassium include:

  • Leafy Greens (chard, spinach, kale)
  • Acorn Squash
  • White Mushrooms
  • Dried Fruit (apricots & raisins without sulfur)
  • Bananas
  • Avocado
  • Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice

 

Foods That Naturally Help Lower Blood Pressure:

  • Flaxseed
  • Beets
  • Pistachios
  • Berries
  • Hibiscus Tea
  • Celery juice
  • Beet juice
  • Garlic

 

Drink A Lot of Water:

You are going to drink a lot of water while you are cleansing. This helps flush toxins from your system, while nourishing the cells in your body. The alkaline water also aids with creating a neutral pH balance in the body.

 

Take A Walk:

Walking or being active reduces fluid build up in the body. Being active for at least 30 minutes a day, even if the activity is low-impact, can also improve your metabolism. After you are finished exercising, elevate your legs for 20 minutes to help increase circulation.

 

Things To Keep In Mind When The Cleanse Is Over:

Remember that eating a lot of processed foods, snack foods, junk foods, fried foods, dairy products, meat, meat products, or refined sugars is what lead you to cleansing. Take into account how your body felt while cleansing and incorporate what you learned on the cleanse into your new lifestyle. Always go easy on the salt! Season your food with citrus juices, herbs, and other spices to add flavor to the point where salt isn’t necessary. Don’t negate the progress you make by reverting to old habits. Stay strong, eat your way healthy, and you can always cleanse again in the future to maintain your new-found health.

    Q: I just stopped taking my medication for high blood pressure (10mg of Lisinapril) about a week and half ago. I started your regimen of Circul-Aid Formula, Cardio-Vascular Formula and celery everyday. Will there be any after effects from my taking prescription medication for a long period of time? Are there any other healing regimens I could undergo along with the current (i.e. cayenne/garlic)? I did the Full Body Detox in January (excellent), and plan on undertaking that regimen again in July. My only concern was the lasting effects of the medication. Also, the article on High Blood Pressure was very informative.

    A:

    Drug residues will remain in the tissues for some time. The more you detox, take herbals, and eat raw fruits and vegetables (drink fruit and vegetable juice), drink good water, etc. The faster the drug residues will leave the body. Drugs are not assimilated in the body, because they are not organic, they end up lodged in the tissues of the body. When you take herbs, and eat fruits and vegetables, the tissues are cleansed and that's how the drug residues are eliminated from the body. You are on the right path, and I suggest you keep doing what you're doing. Don't even worry about the past drug medicine use. Stay in the NOW (moment), and focus on what you desire and you will be alright. A cayenne/garlic formula would aid you. Go for it! Make sure changes are made to the diet because it's the primary factor in HBP along with stress. Check out our "Dietary Choices" section under 'More Services' on the Home Page.

    Q: Hi D, I began the FULL BODY DETOX this AM - Sun.13th. In the past I have experienced high blood pressure (BP) in about the 130/88-95 range. I have personally chosen not to take prescription meds for this but instead to lower it naturally. I have been taking Ultimate Omega, CoQ-10 (100mg), Magnesium, Super Calcium (1200mg)and Kyolic (6x day). I thought to monitor my BP while on this cleanse. I took my first reading @ 6:50 (164/95) pulse 66. Took second reading @ 9:45 (175/101) p- 66. By taking the herbs will this cause my BP to rise? what might be the cause of this and what recommondations might you be able to share with me. Also, I have not been taking my above pills while cleansing - not sure if I was to or stick strictly to the cleanse.

    A:

    Your BP is self-regulating itself so numbers will fluctuate. Don't panic or worry! Trust in your body's natural healing process! With healing it's Ordo Ab Chao: order (stability) out of chaos! And by all means strictly stick to the cleanse! You''ll be fine!

    Q: For about 2.5 months I have been on the path of taking care of my temple (body). I am more dedicated than I have been in the past. One I was diagnose with so-called diabetes (type II) took the pills (made me sicker than I was) and now my doctor has stressed taking insulin injections. Which I am totally against it. Since I have been taking the Pancreas formula, changed my diet (no meats, juicing, fresh fruits, green veggies (organic))& vigorous exercise (cardio), my A1c has gone from 10.9 to 8.6(should be 6.5) in the span of 2mths. Glucose 137 (should be 70-125) has been high as 238 and higher. However, my doctor insist that my diabetes is not controlled, and will not get better because the pancreas function in type2 diabetics declines as time goes on. Therefore, insulin injection will deter kidney failure, heart attack, body amputations, and blindness. I know our emotions help with the conditions of the disease body. What can I do to continue to lower blood sugars to a healthy level? Lower trigylcerides and cholesterol(lower in the last two months)? My blood pressure is 122/80.

    A:

    Performing the Pancreas kit and regimen as much and as often as you can and you'll get your desired results.

    Great maintenance formulas include CIRCUL-AID, PANCREAS FORMULA, SUGAR BUSTER, and BIO-INSULIN.

    Q: I TAKE MEDS FOR DEPRESSION, A WATER PILL, AND BLOOD PRESSURE. WILL THE FULL BODY DETOX HAVE ANY HARMFUL AFFECTS WITH MY MEDS?

    A:

    The FULL BODY DETOX won't have any harmful effects with the meds but the Detox will be counterproductive to the meds as the meds are poison and herbs work against poison. It is your meds that are harming you right now. God made no part of the human body out of medication or pharmaceuticals (petroleum) so you can never heal a health problem with drugs.
