A Remedy for High Blood Pressure?

Posted by E. (Park City, UTAH) on 02/26/2008

You said earlier that "In presence of the body's excessive organic acid, the body's production of sodium nitrite gets destroyed too easily and as a result, the body also goes into high blood pressure, as sodium nitrite, is the major precursor produced by the brain's glial cells in controlling the blood pressure." I never had HBP until I had a surgical hysterectomy at age 42, and began taking Hormone Replacement Therapy. My pressure was always extremely low that I had to eat salt to boost it up. Now its 185/105. I've tried a couple different HBP pills, but I don't like the side effects. Do you think Borax would help? Also, I have MS, and was wondering if Borax therapy would help my condition? Thanks!

Dear Elyse: The high blood pressure after hysterectomy causes low estrogen levels. Whenever estrogen is low, there is a study to show that estrogen depletion leads to high blood pressure. The problem with most estrogen replacement therapy is the spikes created by large amounts of hormone whenever it is taken, resulting in side effect. The only known hormone that can give the required level without a spike is the use of hormone patches. The problem about estrogen is that whenever the operation is performed, other hormones are also missing and hormone replacement therapy usually look exclusively on just estrogen, when an a more important hormone such progesterone is ignored, and certain hormonal precursors such as DHEA and pregnenolone are ignored. The body works in a balance of hormones, but a safer hormone replacement may usually be the hormonal precursors which in turn create other hormone might be considered such as DHEA, pregnenolone and progesterone.

As to why low pressure existed before hysterectomy, this is is due to low grade fever that existed in some people with a weak form of septicemia, or a weak form of blood poisoning. This condition is sometimes due to deep cavities where bacteria is being constantly reintroduced causing low blood pressure and dizziness. So taking sea salt or salt may temporary raise the blood pressure, we are not looking at to the cause. When these bacteria, which can come from cavities, from immunization, from open wounds, form leaky gut syndrome where bacteria enters the bloodstream, this is the common cause of low blood pressure due to septicemia like conditions. Therefore, if long term condition exists, even for mycoplasma introduced from vaccines and yearly flu vaccinations, the body's get attacked by live bacteria, mycoplasma that attacks the systems, glandular system, compounded with high calcium intake can lead to hysterectomy. Since the cause was never resolved, other glandular disturbances is possible such as thymus, thyroid, adrenal, since glands are usually defenseless compared to the skin epidetmis and they are often easy targets to virus, bacteria and other conditions and if they are not dealt with directly it leads to their removal and that is not solving the cause. A zinc, iodine and magnesium supplements and some sea salt, along with alkalization should have resolve some of those causes to prevent hysterectomy in preventing low grade fever for example. Of course if the condition were due to cavities, plugging up the cavities or tooth extraction would have been the easiest way to resolve it.

As to what should be done in case hysterectomy exist and whether borax or boron remedy will help, what I do know for sure is the borax remedy does raise the body's general hormonal production, but other supplements might also be considered such as magnesium, vitamin B complex and perhaps some zinc. The magnesium helps reduce the excess calcium problem, avoiding oily foods would have prevented the blockage of hormones and allows for better control of blood pressure.

The most practical ways I know of is granulated lecithin one tablespoon taken three times a day along with meal, avoiding all cured meats, and switching the bread to rice as the best ways, and avoiding the use of vegetable oils in cooking would allow for normal blood pressure too. But it has always that 2 tablespoons of lemon juice plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water will allow the body's hormones to function more efficiently at least twice a day may be helpful.

I have found that borax reduces some blood pressure due to its alkaline properties, but baking soda and lemon is helpful too, not just the alkaline properties but in normalizing excess blood calcium which leads to lower blood pressure too. A small amount of borax such as 1/8 teaspoon of borax in 1 liter of water I have found on many occasions to raise the body's hormone function. An occasional, but not necessarily everyday, taking of some DHEA such as 12 mg, and pregnenolone also have some blood pressure lowering effects. It should be noted that I don't usually take these as a hormone replacement, but to take it now and then whenever hormonal levels are low so that these are taken, to prevent glandular exhaustion. Taking too high amounts of any hormonal, which result in high hormonal spikes usually leads to a glandular shutdown which can lead to days or weeks of shutdown before the body is able to produce a hormone itself, which is more like a middle path approach on my part.

On the other hand, I have noted that some people who take melatonin during the night can also allow the body's other hormones to produce normally. The interesting feature of melatonin is that if a person can't sleep and took this for about a month, the body pretty soon know how to make it's own hormone and might not even need the melatonin supplements. Interesting, this observation is sometimes applicable to DHEA, pregnenolone, and sometimes progresterone too. The glandular system whenever it is exhausted, sometimes needs a relaxation cycle in which some hormone were taken, such as once a week, or twice a week or three times a week, to prevent glandular exhaustion is a more moderate approach than taking them everyday. I have always noted problem of people taking them everyday after certain numbers of days taking continuously such as 8 or 9 days of taking non-stop. Therefore, in many of my remedies I try to make sure some remedies are taken 5 days out of a week, 4 days out of a week, or taking three times a week to allow the body time to rest and detox, instead of constantly being pushed or hassled by these hormones where the body feels it doesn't want it. The best way to know is to know when the body does want it, which can be once every other day or something for example. But most interestingly, both estrogens and testosterones in my opinion needs a hormone patch rather than a tablet or capsule form.

As a side note certain aromatherapy therapy can even make for a possible substitute of estrogen and might be used to some extent as a hormonal replacement therapy too, such as peppermint oil taken a couple of times a day about 2-4 drops. Peppermint oil has some estrogenic properties as well as cortisone properties and some people might even do well taking that. So my remedy might be a peppermint oil, some borax at 4 days or every other day in one liter of drinking water, and occasional twice or three times a week progesterone, pregnenolone, and sometimes only if I find necessary estrogen patch hormones as one possible example. Thus borax can help raise the body's hormones, but magnesium, lemon and baking soda, vitamin B complex, DHEA, and pregnenolone I think should a least be considreed too.
