High Blood Pressure and the Vitalizer Plus
High blood pressure has also been correlated with a reduced amount of water in the blood, and with aging. Adults have a lower concentration of water in their blood than children; the elderly have even lower concentrations. This is one reason (accurate or not) that higher blood pressure has been considered "normal" as we age.
The water content of the blood is critical. We have noted that thickened blood results in higher cholesterol levels; it also results in high blood pressure. This is because blood is mostly water. Normal levels of water in the blood are considered to be 80-85%, although some feel that these accepted levels are much too low. Dr. Batmanghelidj suggests that fully hydrated blood should be 94% water.
When there is a reduction in the amount of water in the blood, the total blood volume is reduced and more pressure is required to pump it into the extremities of the body. As the body becomes increasingly dehydrated, more and more pressure is required and blood pressure continues to rise.
Obviously, there are other factors that contribute to high blood pressure; stress is at the top of the list. However, dehydration is the number one cause of stress in the human body. It is well known that stress, regardless of the cause, produces the same physiological symptoms. Water is so important that it alone can often bring blood pressure within normal levels. Water is also the best thing to take during any kind of stress.
Ken's story is an example of how hexagonal water appears to have brought his blood pressure into the normal range and supported his health following open heart surgery:
Three years ago (Feb. 2002), I had heart surgery - a quadruple bypass. For a little over a year I followed the standard medical protocol, taking medication for blood pressure and cholesterol, which were both still high. About a year after the surgery, I was introduced to hexagonal water. As I began to drink hexagonal water, I noticed an almost immediate improvement in my energy - and I began to lose weight. The longer I drank the water, the better I felt, and I wondered if the water was helping my heart.
When my medication was nearly gone, I was told that I needed to take a stress test before my doctor could prescribe any further medication. I was feeling so good that I decided to find out what would happen if I stopped taking medication and continued to drink hexagonal water. A year later, I went in for my annual physical. To my surprise, my blood work was perfect. Every one of the 40 parameters that was measured was within the normal range. I was really excited and within several months I scheduled the stress test with my cardiologist. I wish I had a video of everyone's faces as I effortlessly completed that test! At each higher level of the test, the nurses and technicians asked me if I was okay to go on. For the final 3 minutes, as I was almost running, they were all standing there is disbelief. My blood pressure stayed well within the normal range (130/80 to start and 160/80 at the end) and I was not really winded when I was done.
When my cardiologist came in to review the results, he had to look twice to make sure of what he was reading. Then he asked the technician, "How long has he not been taking any medication?".
Needless to say, I got a clean bill of health where my heart was concerned and although the doctor was obliged to tell me that it would be in my best interest to resume taking medication for blood pressure and cholesterol, I have decided NOT to take those medications. I can't believe how good I feel.
