Blood Pressure Drugs Linked to Depression and Mental Health Disorders

Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a challenge faced by 1 in 3 American adults. Worse still, a recent study cited in The Washington Post suggests that common blood pressure treatments, such as beta blockers and ACE inhibitors, may lead to depression and mood disorders.

Pharmaceutical hypertension interventions are built on a shoddy foundation. The misuse of beta blockers has been tied to 800,000 deaths in Europe. Unbelievably, the majority of those harmed had little or no prior cardiac health risks. That this same class of hypertension drug has now been linked to depression raises questions about the scientific aptitude and integrity of the modern medical establishment. At the very least, the risks and benefits of any drug need to be more carefully weighed in order to avoid future catastrophes.

There are natural ways to control your blood pressure. Ironically, one common solution is not having your blood pressure tested by a doctor. “White-coat hypertension” may be responsible for 20 percent of diagnoses. The fear and stress caused by a visit to the doctor can lead to elevated readings. This can be avoided by testing your blood pressure at home or in another location.

Unfortunately, high blood pressure is often more than just a panicked reaction to a looming and minatory figure in a white coat. Diet and exercise can address the underlying causes of high blood pressure. This approach contrasts sharply with the common allopathic approach of treating only the symptoms. Reducing sugar intake, adopting intermittent fasting and embracing an active lifestyle may help you avoid the many pitfalls of pharmaceutical based treatments.
