Today, I want to share an interesting home remedy that can potentially lower your risk of hypertension.

Many people with high blood pressure are told to reduce their sodium intake. However, a deficiency in sodium can lead to high blood pressure. A low-salt diet can actually worsen your blood pressure.

In my opinion, potassium is one of the key factors in restoring healthy blood pressure levels. Not decreasing sodium—just increasing potassium.

Vitamin D is also important for someone with hypertension, especially essential hypertension.

Insulin resistance is at the heart of metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is a combination of hypertension, high blood glucose, fatty liver disease, and high cholesterol. It’s crucial to go on a low-carb diet to support healthy blood pressure levels.

Natural alternatives for hypertension:
1. Consume more potassium (vegetables)
2. Go on a low-carb diet
3. Take vitamin D or get more sun

You can also try an incredible and simple breathing technique to help lower your blood pressure fast. This technique is called paced breathing.

Take six complete breaths per minute. Slowly breathe through your nose using your chest, inhale for five seconds, and exhale for five seconds. Do this periodically throughout the day.

Other potential benefits of paced breathing:
• It can help increase oxygen saturation
• It can help increase exercise tolerance
• It can help decrease sympathetic overdrive

    You’re great, Dr. Berg! I live in the state of Rhode Island. Within the past few years, I encountered two people in my area who told me you helped them reverse advanced cancers.

    Dr. Berg! since I started listening to you while getting back into keto, my health has changed for the better.
    I had developed high blood pressure while taking care of my husband that had stage 4 lung cancer. I gained horrible weight, and I was severely depressed.
    He passed 4 years ago and it took me awhile to work through that loss. I had tried keto shortly after his death but didn’t have the right guidance. I lost weight but I also went through some serious hair loss.
    At the time I was led to believe that it was possibly my thyroid in which I was tested and that wasn’t the case.
    In May of this year I made some changes in my life which helped me get back to keto. Through word of mouth I was led to you ❤
    I’ve lost almost 50 pounds, no longer on BP meds. My hair is coming back. Recent blood work showed that my sodium is within range, potassium is up. But chloride is very low. Of course I don’t know what that means and I would love to see a video on that. I do deal with osteoarthritis now so I don’t know if that has anything to do with that.
    My friends are amazed at the change in my overall appearance and attitude. And it’s ALL THANKS TO YOU!!

I’m very upbeat and laughing a lot. No more antidepressants for me. As you mentioned, I have joint pain and muscle pain, and I don’t know what to do about it. I don’t want to start taking medicines for that too.

    I started following you and went on the Keto Diet/Intermittant fasting in January this year. My blood pressure wasn’t that high to begin with, about 140+ over 100, but it has dropped to 130 over 70. I’ve also gone from 225 Lbs to 180 Lbs (6’3″). I use this breathing method any time I get my blood pressure checked. It quickly lowers your blood pressure after physical activity (like walking into the Dr’s office and being stressed about the exam/procedure). I learned this technique when I was a teenager at a Silva Mind Control class (My mother made me go). I’ve used this for 50 years to relax or calm down in stressful situations. It works great. Thanks for all of the advice. Request: do a video on Bladder Cancer.

    Dr Berg is right about breath rate controlling your blood pressure. Years ago I would get nervous when a doctor or nurse checked my BP and they would have to re-check it and the second time was always lower. After I started doing Yoga breathing while being checked, my BP would always be 120/80 or lower.

    • @catherinegay1404 on December 9, 2023 at 10:56 pm

      I went to see the nurse practioner, and she didn’t take my bp immediately, and I asked her why. She said because I’d just come in from the outside, then waiting room, let’s wait. Sure enough, a few minutes later when she checked it, it was ok!
