πŸ’“ Lower Your Blood Pressure & Live Longer – by Dr Sam Robbins


Hi, it’s Dr Sam Robbins, I want to get right to the point with today’s
topic – if you want to live a healthier and longer life, you MUST lower your blood pressure.
It must be below 120/80 mm/Hg This is because high blood pressure (hypertension)
or even “elevated” blood pressure is a primary cause of
A heart attack Heart failure
Cardiovascular death Stroke
Kidney problems Dementia, memory and cognitive problems
… and overall premature death And if you don’t care about dying or your
health, and you care more about “vanity” – just know that elevated blood pressure is
also linked to hair loss and sexual dysfunction. Now, I did make another video about this topic
in the past and I’ll give you the link to that in a minute. However, I bring up today’s topic because
in the past couple of weeks, I’ve had two very close friends of mine, lose their father’s.
One had a stroke and died within a week. The other had a heart attack and then due to ongoing
complications, went to the hospital and then all of a sudden died. Both happened quickly and were unexpected
and it’s been very hard for everyone. And I’ve mentioned this in the past that
my father had a stroke about 5 years ago. He made a good recover and was doing well.
Even though he was slower and had a slight limp. His blood pressure had been perfect
since. Unfortunately, about 2 months ago he a really
bad fall, which is the top 3 causes of death in the elderly. The fall caused a horrible
concussion and he was in a coma for a week, then the ICU and then rehab and so forth. In the hospital, they didn’t allow any supplements
or health fats. They gave him horrible food and his blood pressure shot up and made the
matter much worse. After two months, he is now back at home…
But he has aged like 10 years in just 2 months. It’s been very stressful for everyone, especially
my dad and of course, my mom. And this is why I just needed to bring up
this topic again. It’s very important. I want you and your loved ones to be healthy
and pay attention to “silent killers” such as blood pressure. By the way, all 3 men that I just mentioned,
my dad and my friend’s dads, did not smoke, weren’t fat and ate relatively well. For
sure my dad did. But after a certain age, most people have
higher blood pressure. For example, ⅓ of people (33%) over the
age of 18 are walking around with “high” blood pressure and don’t even know it. Thus,
hypertension. This means over 140/90. Over 50% of people easily hit these higher
numbers at different times of the day. And over 65% of people have PRE hypertension
or simply, “elevated” blood pressure, which is between 120-129 systolic. Yes, life-style matters for sure. However, it seems that a primary cause is
due to the negative changes in your hormones because of AGING. Look at this graph from the CDC (Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention) These numbers are based on having HIGH blood
pressure (hypertension) and thus, about 140/90 or higher. Between the ages of 18-39, about 7.5% of the
population has high blood pressure. Between 40-59, it goes up almost 5x to 33% And over the age of 60, it doubles again to
over 63% of the population. Again, this does NOT take into account those
who have “elevated” blood pressure and thus, prehypertension. My suggestion is you take this topic very
seriously. You should purchase a good blood pressure
machine to use at home and take your blood pressure throughout the the day. See where
your levels and make sure you keep it UNDER 120/80 Now, below in the description area, I’ve
got two important links. The first goes to an article I wrote about
how I lowered my dad’s blood pressure naturally. And the second link goes to another YouTube
video, “The Secret To Living Longer, By Controlling Your Blood Pressure” Please take a look at both of them or at least
just one of them right now, while it’s fresh on your mind. And also share this video with anyone you
know who should be concerned about their blood pressure. This includes most people over the
age of 40. Thanks for listening and have a happy and
healthy day!
