According to the American Heart Association 1 out 3 or 77.9 million adults have high blood pressure, half of whom don't have it under control. Heart disease is also the leading cause of death for both men and women. In the Quad Cities, the prevalence of heart disease is 9.2% compared to the national average of 6.1%.
Unfortunately, Western medicine's answer to high blood pressure is to suppress the symptom with prescription drugs, which you are expected to take for the rest of your life. That's not a treatment! Getting to the root of the problem and treating the root is the answer to better patient outcomes.
On February 10th at 6pm – 7pm inside Moline Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Wayne Davis of Moline Chiropractic Clinic and Scott Stewart, MSAc., Dipl.Ac., LAc. of Healing Lotus Acupuncture will be giving a presentation on many of the often overlooked causes of high blood pressure, and the effectiveness of Eastern medicine and chiropractic care, along with lifestyle modifications, which can naturally lower blood pressure. There will also be a brief synopsis on how the mechanism of acupuncture and chiropractic care can modulate the body’s innate regulatory system, and thereby lower blood pressure.
