Detoxify Your Body to Lower High Blood Pressure

There’s no escaping the fact that we live in a toxic world.

  • Mankind has invented no fewer than 10 million new chemicals, approximately 3,500 of which are in your food, with an equal number in your homes and household products.

  • Roughly 300 known harmful substances can be found in most blood samples these days.

  • There are at least 5,000 chemical ingredients in cosmetics.

The Importance of Detoxifying Your Body

Our immune systems are under constant siege, working 24/7 to destroy the impurities in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink and the chemicals we apply to our skin. All these chemical toxins flood our systems with dangerous free radicals that contribute to oxidative stress—a key cause of high blood pressure levels. Therefore, detoxifying your body plays a crucial role in any high blood pressure level treatment plan.

To start, there are a number of very simple strategies you can employ to reduce your exposure to environmental toxins. Once you’ve put those into practice, I encourage you to read about my five easy detoxification techniques that can help you detoxify your body, lower your oxidative stress, and ultimately help lower your high blood pressure levels.
