Hypertension, Weakness and Fatigue

Posted by Anonymous (Anonymous) on 05/17/2011

Good Morning Ted, you have amazing website. Here is a brief of my story; first of all I have hypertensive high blood pressure with fast heart rate (runs in the family). I am 37 years old male, I live in Canada but 4 years ago I moved to live and work in Dubai UAE. In Jan 2009 I started to take blood pressure medications, I started with a medication called Caduet, it did not work for me because it is keeping my heart rate fast, then the doctor switched me to Tarka in the morning and medicine called concor in the evening, the treatment was ok, a after two months of these medications I start feeling some weird sensation on the back of my head, I ignored it it wasn't that severe. June of 2009 I did a sinus surgery and suppose to be a simple one, the doctor inflated some tubes and laser burned some access flesh in my nose. After this sinus surgery I felt miserable, my eyes were watery, massive headache cannot concentrate, or walk right, I had severe insomnia, my blood pressure went up even with medications, i start taking antidepressant but it made matter worst, most doctors told me I am ok it will go away, after two months of suffering I went to Canada for my annual leave in Sep 2009, after two weeks there I started restoring my sleep back, i felt good I also changed my blood pressure medications to Lopressor. When i came back to Dubai in October of 2009, The problem started again. But less severe, I started going to the Gym in September of 2010, It wasn't doing good, I still feel fatigness and tired, early 2011 another problem arised, i start getting shortness of breath and becoming worst, I though it could be from the blood pressure medication it is making me too week so just a month ago I changed it to Cozaar, The insomnia came back, i stopped Cozaar again and taking herbal medications from local store here, it is keeping my BP low, but the insomnia never went away. I feel very fatigued and week, i can't do any activities at all because of shortness of breath, my nose always stuffed. It has been two years Dr. TED and desperately looking for solution to my problem. I really don't know what i have got, is it the blood pressure medications doing this, please assist me, I red you formula about Baking Soda and ACV. would that help, can i call you if you don't mind. Thank you so much.

The ACV with baking soda helps with the energy level. You just have to adjust the remedy. Start with 2 tablespoon ACV and 1/4 teaspoons, I prefer after meals 30 minutes start with 2 times a day first, such as in the afternoon and dinner. If all went well, increase to three times a day. The reason why it works is two reasons. Nearly all biochemical in the liver involving metabolism is acetylated, and the best form of acetylation comes from two souces, apple cider vinegar and plain distilled vinegar. The formula of 2 tablespoons to 1/4 teaspoon comes to 7.3 pH, which within your blood biochemistry, but some people it works where they need more or less of that bicarbonates, you have to adjust the formula, but it's the best starting value. Apple cider vinegar contains another compound, malic acid which is found in the Kreb's cycle and giving energy also. You can also make a stronger solution with vinegar plus more malic acid and some baking soda too.

But there appears you need another that is missing from your diets. Magnesium, which could be in the form of magnesium glycinate, magnesium chloride, magnesium malate, but NEVER magnesium oxide, magnesium carbonate, or magnesium hydroxide, as it won't go through the gut as easily, and may make the conditions worse. Supplement companies maximized there profit by adding magnesium oxide or even magnesium sulfate (Epson salt), where the first instance is poorly water soluble hence not bioavailable and second instance, magnesium sulfate is acidic, but in some cases it is emetic (induces vomiting) and diarrhea. This will help restore you energy level, it did with me and it works also in restoring normal heart patterns and energy. It may restore your sleep patterns somewhat also, magnesium and apple cider vinegar and baking soda. Make SURE it doesn't contain calcium formula in the magnesium, it doesn't work as well and actually causes weight gain.

This is the basic remedy, there are more advanced one, but always start with this.

Recently, the past 3 months, I have been suffering from something weird, whenever i perform any activity, I feel my veins pumping im my head and sometimes im my body specially when i walk up the stairs, I tried your formula about the ACV baking soda, but those feeling increased much, so i stopped it. I believe Mr. Ted my whole problem in blood pressure medication, eventhough i switched to herbal capsules it is still cusing lots of problem and i am afraid i am suffering from vascular diesese, i went to too many Cardilogist they tell me nothing wrong with you, so what is wrong with my body?

Thanks for the advice in advance."

It has a lot to do with medications true, but there are underlying cause of deficiencies and too much for something in your body. The best supplements that can handle this kind of issue is I will go for 1000 mg of CoQ10, but I usually start off with 400 mg of CoQ10 first and see how it responds, Quercetin 1000 mg, and Acetyl L carnitine are some possibility. The excess of salt consumption, tyramine found in Cheeses, wheat products, fried foods are the common problems. The body doesn't produce enough of the hydrogen sulfide, which can be indirectly handled with N acetyl cysteine, in alkaline water, insufficient potassium citrate are some of the common problems. So even if they don't nave a name of it, the problem is likely to be linked to hypertension and border line diabetes.
The heart racing fast is to not take phosphates, as it is found in meats and other products. Too much chlorides in diet is also responsible such as sodium chloride, potassium chloride, but also MSG are common problems.

The anxiety attacks is mostly helped with B3 niacinamide 500 mg.

I have a question regarding MgCO3, you indicate never to use it. I would imagine that it would react with the acid present in the ACV in an identical manner as NaHCO3 or Na2CO3. So, why not to use MgCO3.
