I’m not the most “politically correct” guy in the world…
But I can see when women are being EXPLOITED… USED… and outright ABUSED…
And all for the sake of an agenda.
Ladies, it’s about to happen again.
Because right now, the medical mainstream is HATCHING a plot to manipulate millions of women into taking meds most of them DON’T want or need…
All under the guise of PC madness.
That’s right – they’re trying to use your gender as the hook for a MASSIVE hoodwink!
So today… as this new plan unfolds… I’m going to share what to watch for…
For both your own sake and the sake of any women in your life.
Equal rights… to be MEDICATED?
Here’s the situation: They want MORE women on MORE blood pressure meds.
So they’re SCHEMING to convince us all that ladies are getting CHEATED out of those drugs… because of their gender.
The new report finds that many women… especially in middle ages and just after menopause… are diagnosed with “stress” and/or “menopausal symptoms”…
When they REALLY should be diagnosed with and treated for hypertension.
If I were a cynic, I’d say this is coming out of the fact that when run-of-the-mill stress or menopause is treated with meds… it’s more of a short-term thing.
Hypertension is MUCH more attractive to the mainstream…
Because it not only means drugs… but often an ongoing prescription for the rest of your life.
How very conveniently profitable!
Of course, they’d never, ever admit to that.
“Nahhhhhh we’re just concerned,” they say. “If guys are getting hypertension meds, well, then goshdarnit the ladies should have some equal opportunity to have those same drugs.”
I’d say here’s a situation where you DEFINITELY don’t want “equal rights”…
Because these drugs are bad news at any age.
Here’s what I did in my practice.
When a patient’s BP is just a little high, I wouldn’t tend to pay it much mind.
Sure, keep an eye on it… but worry about it? MEDICATE for it?
If it’s TRULY high… or steadily increasing across visits… then it’s time to take a little action.
And that’s true whether you’re a “she” or a “he” or anything in between.
I’d start easy and have my patients pop some magnesium. Odds are, they were low anyway.
And about 500-1,000 mg per day can often bring BP back home.
Here’s another way to cut your BP…
Lose some weight. Dropping even 10 pounds can often bring your numbers down.
And exercise will not only help you SLIM DOWN… but could also shave 3 points off your BP.
That’s as good as some meds!
If you’ve tried all that and are STILL on the high side… DON’T blindly medicate it and hope the levels come down.
Speak to a naturopathic physician who can run some tests and figure out WHY your BP’s rising.
Because addressing the underlying problem is always, always, always going to be better than medicating a symptom.
