High Blood Pressure

 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…

Persistent Pesticide Exposure & Increased Risk for Lou Gehrig’s Disease


Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a neurodegenerative disease affecting motor neurons and disabling voluntary control of muscles. 90-95 percent of cases have unknown etiology. Environmental exposures have been suspected to be a potential cause.

By comparing the environmental toxin exposure of 101 ALS patients to 110 comparable healthy control individuals, researchers from the University of Michigan demonstrated that people with persistent exposure to environmental pollutants such as organochlorine pesticides, polychlorinated biphenyls, and brominated flame retardants are at 2-3 times greater odds of having ALS than those who are not exposed.

As animals can accumulate and concentrate these toxins in their bodies with contaminated food and water intake, meat and dairy products can serve as major sources of these toxins. At our Wellness Center in Beverly Hills, Dr. Aristotle will personalize a plan to help your body rid these toxins safely and effectively.

Dr. Aristotle’s Comment:
We’ve discussed environmental exposures and the crucial need for proper elimination of toxins from the body. The long term effects on our health and ability to heal from disease are now being noticed in the literature. Before starting any detoxification program be sure to strengthen the biochemistry of your body.

I highly recommend the Cardio-Ion laboratory tests to determine what strengths and weaknesses currently exist in your body.  Be proactive in your healing while staying on target with your nutrition in our Beverly Hills office.
