If you’re a person with high blood pressure, there are likely many things you’ve tried to do to lower it. You may have quit smoking and also started exercising, eating better, or taking medications- all to no avail. Maybe you just don’t know where else to turn next. That’s why we recommend fasting as one of the best ways for people with hypertension to lower their blood pressure without any adverse side effects. Fasting can restore normality of insulin sensitivity and reduce chronic inflammation, both known contributors to high BP.
Research has shown a strong connection between fasting and blood pressure. Higher blood pressure is associated with increased inflammation, insulin resistance, and hyperinsulinemia. (1)
Even the simplest of lifestyle changes can have profound effects on one’s health. We think five days of fasting will reverse high blood pressure and other health issues you’re facing. Fasting allows your body to slow down in order to create homeostasis through a number of physiological processes. This includes creating equilibrium among the various organs and systems within the human body.
What Are the Benefits of Fasting?
Fasting is a natural method of cleansing the body. It’s also known to improve resistance to disease, boost longevity and enhance energy levels.
Fasting may be beneficial in reversing high blood pressure and preventing strokes, heart attacks, and other cardiovascular diseases. This is because it helps lower blood pressure by improving insulin sensitivity, reducing chronic inflammation throughout the body, and restoring blood pressure to normal levels.
Any nutritional intervention that can reduce insulin levels can have a direct benefit on hypertension, especially in patients with insulin resistance.
What is High Blood Pressure?
It’s important to understand what high blood pressure is. When the arteries become narrowed, they are nearly impossible to dilate and your heart and brain will stop receiving sufficient amounts of blood.
Fasting can help reduce high blood pressure by lowering insulin sensitivity, improving inflammation throughout the body, increasing levels of HDL (good) cholesterol, and therefore reducing triglycerides.
Don’t confuse a healthy fasting regimen with starvation or fasting for a prolonged period of time in order to lose weight.
Fasting is one of the safest forms of dieting since it’s very hard to overeat on a two-day fast. Most people who participate in fasting describe improved energy, better sleep, and a complete absence of hunger pangs.
Fasting is also an effective method of staying young by removing old waste and rejuvenating our cells. Fasting is also beneficial for people recovering from surgery due to the fact that it will aid in the detoxification process by flushing out any toxins that have been released by dead cells.
How to Lower Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is affected by many factors including poor health habits, chemical preservatives and ingredients from processed foods, stress levels and chronic inflammation throughout the body.
The body becomes inflamed as a result of many causes including stress, anxiety, poor health habits, and faulty eating habits.
In order to combat this, you must take steps to reduce your levels of inflammation while increasing your HDL (good) cholesterol.
Inflammation is a common source of high blood pressure. Fasting allows the body to slow down and promote homeostasis through a number of physiological processes including creating equilibrium among the various organs and systems within the human body.
During fasting, the body’s reaction to stress will be one that promotes healing instead of inflammation.
In order to combat chronic inflammation, you must take steps to increase your levels of HDL (good) cholesterol while reducing triglycerides and carbohydrate consumption. Unfortunately, most people consume processed foods that are high in carbohydrates and saturated fat which can lead directly to chronic inflammation. So, eating right is extremely important.
When you are fasting, you are limiting your nutritional intake and supplying your body with only the nutrients it can naturally produce. As a result, your body will flush out all the waste that has been built up over the years!
Fasting has been shown to lower blood pressure, improve insulin sensitivity and also rejuvenate cells.
In fact, fasting is a time-honored practice that’s been practiced by many of our great civilizations. It’s extremely vital to health and should be used as an effective healing method in order to maintain your health!
