Dosage for a Teenager?

Posted by Vinnie on 09/26/2006

Hi Ted, Just found out yesterday that my 18 year old son has high blood pressure, 160/100. The doctor wants to put him on some stuff called Toprol (I think that's how it's spelled). My wife and I are very concerned with side-effects and feel it would be better dealt with through diet and natural methods. I saw Earth Clinic and numerous testimonies for the effects of ACV and Bicarbonates to lower blood pressure. What would you recommend for a dosage for an 18 year old who's never had something like this??? Thank You so much for your time. Vinnie

Dear Vinnie: You try to mix 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/4 ascorbic acid for you son in one half glass of water. He needs more vitamin C and his antioxidants status appear low and this causes water retention.

ACV will lower the blood pressure too but you need to add some baking soda. ACV is unique in dissolving fats and other things, while alkalizing is one way of reducing blood pressure. The reason is that in an acid body environment, the body tends to be oxidized and it must retain or build enough antioxidation in the liquid enough not to damage the cells, but at the same time, this causes high blood pressure. So if we can raise the antioxidation status, blood pressure will be reduce. Avoid chlorinated and fluoridate foods, they are oxidation process as well as fried foods and snacks. These are commonly high in heavy metals. In my opinion the first formula should work better, based on my recent findings.

For an 18 year old who has never tried this, you might get diarrhea. So the important thing is to start slowly with once in the morning and once in the evening on an empty stomach. Do not eat after taking this by at least 1 hour. So we can avoid diarrhea associated problems.
