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.
