An Overlooked Reason That Contributes To High Blood Pressure & Hypertension.
You have probably seen the medical literature discuss the harmful effects of mercury on our blood vessels. In fact in 2008, it was the presence of heavy metals in my body that contributed to my paralysis and being confined to an electric wheelchair.
Health problems from the mercury can also include hypertension, coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction, cardiac arrhythmias, reduced heart rate variability, increased carotid intima-media thickness and carotid artery obstruction, cerebrovascular accident, generalized atherosclerosis, and renal dysfunction.
The general effects on the blood vessels from mercury include increased oxidative stress and inflammation, reduced oxidative defense, thrombosis, dyslipidemia, and immune and mitochondrial dysfunction.
These effects can also result in high blood pressure and may be a clinical clue to mercury-induced heavy metal toxicity.
It is important to note that mercury reduces the protective effect of fish oil and omega-3 fatty acids, which have value in the management of reducing high blood pressure.
In our Beverly Hills clinic we evaluate mercury toxicity and other heavy metal levels to check if these may be a contributing factor of hypertension, coronary heart disease, cerebral vascular disease, cerebrovascular accident, or other vascular disease.
If you are suffering with hypertension it is of vital importance to order a heavy metal blood test. See image below…
If your test results show high heavy metals, you must locate a doctor trained in gentle detoxification otherwise you may experience too strong of a detoxification.
