Best treatment for hypertension begins when CAP is able to control blood pressure without the need for medications which can help prevent the risks of heart attack, stroke and chronic renal failure.

It is widely acknowledged that the first focus in hypertension treatment should be lifestyle correction.

  • High blood pressure affects around 40% of the adult population globally. Hypertension is a major risk factor for heart attack, stroke, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, peripheral arterial disease, vision loss, chronic kidney disease, and dementia.
  • About 90–95% of hypertension are due to lifestyle factors; only the remaining 5–10% of cases are due to an identifiable cause.
  • Fewer than 1 in 5 people with hypertension have the problem under control. Hypertension is a major cause of premature death worldwide.
  • Modern lifestyle associated changes in the body composition such as high fat mass to lean mass ratio, high omega 6 to 3 fatty acid ratio, high sodium to potassium ratio and low magnesium at cellular level are the primary reason for increasing incidence for hypertension.
  • Excess sodium, low potassium and low magnesium associated stress at cellular level leads to autonomic nervous system and hormonal over activity leading to hypertension.
  • Dyslipedemia and hyperglycemia associated blood vessel damage leads to atherosclerosis. When the renal arteries get narrowed with atherosclerosis increase in blood pressure becomes difficult to control.
  • The goal of cell activation treatment is to correct the root cause of hypertension by correcting the body composition at cellular level.
  • Optimized nutrient food and salt optimizes the sodium potassium ratio at cell level and there by correcting the autonomic nervous system and hormonal overactivity.
  • High omega 3 fat in optimized nutrient food and oil along with oxyflex a breath regulated segmental activity pattern for increasing metabolism helps to reduce excess body fat and balance omega 3 to 6 balance and strengthen the immune system, reduce inflammation and reduce atherosclerosis and open up the blocks in arteries.
  • In CAP treatment along with blood pressure correction other associated lifestyle diseases like diabetes, obesity, fatty liver, arthritis, allergy, asthma, constipation, piles etc, also get corrected in the same course of treatment.

Symptoms

Symptoms are often overlooked, and often missed for long but the harm caused by hypertension starts even if symptoms have not been recognised.

The role of the individual is crucial in the understanding of hypertension symptoms. This can lead to early diagnosis and treatment. Early diagnosis and treatment helps in preventing damage to the heart, blood vessels, and other vital organs like the kidneys and protects against stroke etc.

Often ignorance about hypertension promotes patients to go for drug therapy at the initial stage itself when lifestyle correction should be the preferred option .

  • Hypertension is called a “silent killer”. Most people with hypertension are unaware of the problem because it may have no warning signs or symptoms. For this reason, it is essential that blood pressure is measured regularly.
  • When symptoms do occur, they can include early morning headaches, nosebleeds, irregular heart rhythms, vision changes, and buzzing in the ears. Severe hypertension can cause fatigue, nausea, vomiting, confusion, anxiety, chest pain, and muscle tremors.
  • Long term high blood pressure is a major risk factor for coronary artery disease, heart attack, stroke,cardiomyopathy, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, peripheral arterial disease, vision loss, chronic kidney disease, and dementia.
  • Accumulation of fat as protruding tummy, overweight and obesity is an indication to check blood pressure.
  • In most hypertensive patients, body composition analysis will show high fat mass lean mass ratio and low omega 3 index. If the omega 3 index is <8 the risk for diseases, especially cardiovascular accidents like heart attack and stroke are high.
  • Ideally body fat should be around 15% for men and 20% for women. In most hypertensive patients the body fat level will be high. If the body fat percentage is more than 25% in men and more than 30% in women they are prone for diseases.
  • Hypertensive patients are high risk for other diseases and needs checking for lipid profile, diabetes, nutritional imbalances, hormonal imbalance, liver function, kidney function and pancreatic dysfunction, etc.

Understanding the root cause of hypertension and the changes in the body due to such a condition is important for the prevention, treatment and possibly the reversal of hypertension. Commonly the causes may be divided into primary where the cause is not in the malfunctioning of any other organ or system and secondary when some other body system or organ is malfunctioning. This enables one to understand how important optimisation of health is towards a safer treatment for hypertension.

Often conventional treatment is based on trial and error and often a balancing act of blocking and enhancing different actions in the body using medication all the while trying to keep side effects within control.

 

  • Primary hypertension. Root cause of primary hypertension is the derailed lifestyle which include sedentary lifestyle associated fat accumulation in the body leading to overweight and obesity; and aberrant food habit related excess sodium, omega 6 fat and trans fat in the diet; low potassium, magnesium and omega 3 fat in the diet, smoking, alcohol use, etc.
  • Secondary hypertension. Hypertension occur secondary to other diseases like hypothyroidism, chronic kidney disease, renal artery stenosis, hormonal imbalance, birth control pills, drugs used as medications etc can lead to hypertension and are called secondary hypertension.
  • Change in the sodium potassium ratio due to high sodium and low potassium modern processed food and associated stress on the maintenance of sodium potassium pump at cellular level plays a major role in pathogenesis of hypertension.
  • High calorie diet rich in sugar/starch and sedentary life associated excess stored fat releases inflammatory mediators from adipose tissue and associated inflammation and changes in the hormone balance play a major role in increased blood pressure. If the stored fat is in the form of trans fat and omega 6 fat the negative impact will be more.
  • Anything other than a nutrient including the drugs taken as medications and any nutrient in excess quantity act as a toxin in the body. Toxins in the body and blood including excess glucose and triglyceride damages the blood vessel lining as they are exposed to the toxins directly leading to atherosclerosis, vessel damage and hypertension.
  • Insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia of diabetes type 2 and the treatment induced super hyperinsulinemia promote sodium retention and thereby contribute to blood pressure increase.
  • Atherosclerosis of renal artery due to elevated cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose etc promote narrowing of renal artery and resultant reduced blood flow to kidney leads to release of renin a hormone from kidney leading to hypertension.
  • Most of the anti hypertensive medications act by either promoting sodium excretion or promoting potassium reabsorption at the kidney or promote relaxation of muscles of arteries by modulating the autonomic nervous system. These medication further increases the strain on the kidney.

Treatment challenges

The individual’s awareness of hypertension treatment plays a major role in hypertension management.

 

Challenge in medical treatment

In hypertension is to manage with minimum of medication and help the patient to optimise health to the extent that medication may not be needed. Here a total approach helps in not only removing the impact of hypertension but also the underlying causes.

Treatment objectives

In treating hypertension often the health parameters will disclose the underlying factors . The approach to overcome the underlying factors whether it may be diabetes, obesity poor blood vessel health, poor kidney condition or any other condition is to focus on these conditions as well to help in a quicker and safer approach to treatment.

Approach – Root cause

Here the focus is on relating the symptoms to the underlying cause of hypertension.

 

Modern scientific knowledge shows the close relationship between diabetes and lifestyle of the individual. Scientifically and logically lifestyle optimization can prevent, treat and even reverse the Prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes and if diagnosed early Type 1 diabetes to an extent. Cell activation treatment is developed to support the person to optimize lifestyle in this current sedentary but fast world. Cell activation support helps to ensure optimal nutrition to all 50-70 trillion cells in the body, prevent accumulation of advanced glycation end products(AGEs) (waste products) in the cells and intercellular fluid and thereby help maintain optimum health.The CAP treatment is focussed on providing cell nutrition, cell stimulation and cell protection by providing optimised nutrition, oxyflex stimulation and protection from toxins.This helps to optimise the health which is the foundation for overcoming lifestyle related diseases.

Focus – Optimising Health

Optimising health as the foundation for hypertension

 

  • Cell Activation treatment is aiming at the optimization of health at cellular level by correcting the body composition with optimal nutrition, stimulation and protection from toxins.
  • Cell activation while controlling blood pressure helps to control and recover from comorbidities like dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis, obesity, diabetes, cardiac arrhythmia, etc.
  • Ready to eat optimized nutrient compositions full fill the specifications of DASH diet (dietary approach to prevent hypertension), and in fact an easy practical way to adhere to DASH diet.
  • Optimized nutrient salt composition with optimal sodium potassium ratio of 1:3 will optimize sodium potassium ratio in the body and electrical gradient at cellular level. This helps to control blood pressure and reduce stress levels by optimizing impulse transmission in the nervous system.
  • High omega 3 fat with optimal omega 3 to 6 ratio in diet will help to relax blood vessel smooth muscles, control blood pressure and reversal of autoimmune disease affecting heart and prevent cardiac arrhythmias.
  • With cell activation treatment we can stop medications for diabetes on day one and taper of medications for hypertension, dyslipidemia and other diseases gradually with body composition correction.
  • Low calorie optimized nutrient food and oxyflex make weight reduction easy and can reduce 10 to 20% of fat mass in 2 months with ease.
  • The high omega 3 fatty acid content of optimized nutrient diet with omega 3 to 6 ratio 1:1 reduces the production of inflammatory mediators and thereby prevent clot formation inside the cardiovascular system and thereby prevent heart attack and stroke.
  • Cell activation can reduce the need for medication and surgery for cardiac problems like angioplasty and bypass surgery and will prevent heart attack and stroke and its recurrence.
  • Weight reduction, correcting body composition and optimization of health with cell activation helps solve other associated health issues of lifestyle origin such as diabetes, asthma, arthritis, fatty liver, kidney disease, etc.
  • Optimized nutrient food and salt optimizes the sodium potassium ratio at cell level and there by correcting the autonomic nervous system and hormonal overactivity.
  • High omega 3 fat in optimized nutrient food and oil along with oxyflex a breath regulated segmental activity pattern for increasing metabolism helps to reduce excess body fat and balance omega 3 to 6 balance and strengthen the immune system, reduce inflammation and reduce atherosclerosis and open up the blocks in arteries.
  • In CAP treatment along with blood pressure correction other associated lifestyle diseases like diabetes, obesity, fatty liver, arthritis, allergy, asthma, constipation, piles etc, also get corrected in the same course of treatment.

Improves quality of life.

Total health improvement

The goal of cell activation treatment in individuals with hypertension is optimization of health and not just control of blood pressure. Cell activation treatment focuses on optimal functioning of the body at a cellular level including all 50-70 trillion cells of the body. While controlling elevated blood pressure it simultaneously corrects the elevated triglyceride level and many other parameters associated with lifestyle related disorders. This is why reversing hypertension with cell activation often provides individuals with a simultaneous reversal of other lifestyle related health issues like diabetes, obesity, arthritis, allergy, asthma, psoriasis, eczema etc.

  • Cell Activation treatment is aiming at the optimization of health at cellular level by correcting the body composition. There for the treatment is beneficial not only to the heart and blood vessel diseases but also to all the organs and health issues of the body.
  • Ready to eat optimized nutrient compositions make the practical implementation of DASH diet simple and easy.
  • Optimized nutrient food and salt with optimal sodium potassium ratio of 1:3 will optimize sodium potassium ratio in the body and thereby helps to control blood pressure.
  • Low calorie optimized nutrient food and oxyflex make weight reduction easy and can reduce 10 to 20% of fat mass in 2 months with ease.
  • The high omega 3 fatty acid content of optimized nutrient diet with omega 3 to 6 ratio 1:1 reduces the production of inflammatory mediators and thereby protects the cardiovascular system from heart attack and stroke.
  • High omega 3 fat with optimal omega 3 to 6 ratio1:1in diet will reduce stress and relax blood vessel smooth muscles, control blood pressure and reversal of autoimmune disease affecting heart and also for managing cardiac arrhythmias.
  • In diabetic patients insulin and medications can be stopped on the day one itself and blood sugar will be under control within a few days, this will speed up recovery of damaged cells and organs.
  • Weight reduction with cell activation helps solve other associated health issues of lifestyle origin such as diabetes, asthma, arthritis, fatty liver, allergy, skin diseases, piles, etc.
  • While controlling blood pressure CAP treatment control elevated cholesterol and triglyceride level, glucose level and speed up recovery and prevent recurrence in patients suffering from heart attack and stroke.
  • Cell activation helps to reduce inflammation, hypercoagulation of blood and atherosclerosis. Thereby reduce the possibility of heart attack, stroke and other inflammatory diseases and able to taper the medications for hypertension, dyslipidemia and other medications for issues of lifestyle origin.
  • Cell activation can reduce the need for medication and surgical intervention like angiogram, angioplasty and bypass surgery and helps to prevent heart attack and stroke and its recurrence

Patient options

The informed patient is the key to treatment success.

  • Cell Activation Program (CAP) is normally a 3 month Outpatient Program for Health Optimisation. However depending on individual requirements the duration may be extended depending on the health challenge and the extent of improvements required in body parameters. An initial evaluation visit is essential and follow up visits vary case by case.
  • You have hypertension symptoms or you suspect so please get a check up and follow up at the earliest to prevent the progression of the disease condition and other associated damage.
  • You have hypertension and you want to check out how you can benefit from optimising health with Cell Activation you can call / fix an appointment at Life Care Centre.
