Hot Topic – Blood Pressure Drugs

Disease just doesn’t happen. There is always a cause.

I am sharing the article below because there is currently a rise in pancreatic cancer that may be linked to blood pressure drugs. According to there is also a link to using blood pressure drugs and drug induced dementia.

Life can get extremely stressful and hectic. The food we choose to eat and the prescription drugs we take can have a direct correlation to our mental and physical health. Trigger foods such as sugar, simple carbs and caffeine all have the ability to cause anxiety, racing heart, stomach dysfunction and more.

Instead of taking blood pressure meds I have opted to supplement with Herb Pharm’s Blood Pressure support and a dropper of Motherwort. I never leave the house or jump into bed without a dose of either, and I’ve found my pressure will come down, along with the added benefit of improved sleep.

The study examined a large group of over 145,000 postmenopausal women from the Women’s Health Initiative study between ages 50 and 79 years old. By 2014, over 800 had developed pancreatic cancer, with elevated risk among those taking a short-acting CCB.

WARNING: Blood pressure drugs can double the risk of pancreatic cancer
Of the participants, those who had taken a CCB (short-acting calcium channel blocker) had a 66 percent increased chance of getting pancreatic cancer. Those who took short-acting CCBs (as compared with other blood pressure drug types) for over three years had a doubled risk of pancreatic cancer….. Read more
