– Six natural remedies for lowering blood pressure fast (Natural News, Jan 5, 2013):
High blood pressure is no longer just an affliction of the elderly, as more than one-third of young people between the ages of 16 and 34 are now said to suffer from some form of hypertension. And a recent study out of California revealed that, if left unchecked, this cardiovascular malady, even in its mild form, can lead to premature aging and brain damage.
The conventional solution to this growing health epidemic is to simply take more blood pressure medications like angiotensin-receptor blockers, which have been scientifically linked to causing cancer and other serious health problems. But the alternative route, which should really just be called the common-sense route, is to eat more foods and herbs that naturally lower blood pressure without causing any harmful side effects.
Here are six natural and quick remedies that will help you keep your blood pressure in check, and avoid the long-term health pitfalls associated with prolonged hypertension:

A new technique that lowers blood pressure by zapping the kidneys with a radio beam could “revolutionise” treatment, it was claimed today.
The therapy produced a dramatic improvement in patients who had been unable to control their high blood pressure with drugs.
Scientists believe it could lead to a completely new approach to managing high blood pressure, a significant risk factor for heart attacks and strokes.
The treatment, reported today in an online edition of the Lancet medical journal, deactivates renal nerves, which play a role in raising blood pressure.
