And these are the most overprescribed treatments in the world…
This simple shake makes men stiffer than a baseball bat
When I was in high school, I had no problem getting stiff at a moment’s notice…
A hot girl could bend over in class and I would be hiding my boner under the desk for the next hour!
But eventually, as I got older, I started losing my stiffness…
I started wondering…
- Is it because I’m drinking too much?
- Too much stress?
- Not enough sleep?
- My diet?
What is it that’s keeping me from enjoying the same firm, solid, long-lasting “rockiness” that I used to enjoy as a young man?
These “treatments” are shrinking men’s prostates
While Big Pharma has some life-saving medications on the market, a lot of the time Big Pharma just makes me crazy.
Especially with how they market treatments that treat symptoms but do nothing to lower your chance of dying or fix the underlying problems.
Hypertension treatments are among the worst culprits.
These treatments are used to treat high blood pressure…
And they are VERY over-prescribed – especially to people with low-risk hypertension.
What is low-risk hypertension?
Low-risk hypertension is higher than “normal” blood pressure. In the US, blood pressure is classified in stages by the American College of Cardiology:
- Normal: Less than 120/80 mm Hg
- Elevated: Systolic between 120-129 and diastolic less than 80
- Stage 1: Systolic between 130-139 or diastolic between 80-89
- Stage 2: Systolic at least 140 or diastolic at least 90 mm Hg
- Hypertensive crisis: Systolic over 180 and/or diastolic over 120, with patients needing prompt changes in medication if there are no other indications of problems, or immediate hospitalization if there are signs of organ damage
Many doctors will prescribe high blood pressure medication for people in Stage 1 and Stage 2 hypertension. But it doesn’t really work the way it’s supposed to.
This is where I have to remind you that I’m not a doctor.
If you are already on Big Pharma treatments to reduce your blood pressure, ALWAYS work with your doctor if you want to get off them.
Do not stop taking them without consulting your doctor.
That being said, it’s also VERY important to do your research and understand the effects these treatments have on your body.
Low-risk hypertension patients had problems with blood pressure treatments.
This study focused on patients who had not had a previous cardiovascular event and who had untreated blood pressure of 140/90 to 159/99…
That is the lower end of Stage 2 hypertension.
“In this longitudinal cohort study, data were extracted from the Clinical Practice Research Datalink, from January 1, 1998, through September 30, 2015, for patients aged 18 to 74 years who had mild hypertension (untreated blood pressure of 140/90-159/99 mm Hg).”
It was also a big study with almost 40,000 people, pretty evenly split between men and women.
“In this study of electronic health records of 38,286 low-risk patients with mild hypertension, no evidence of an association was found between exposure to antihypertensive treatment and mortality or cardiovascular disease.”
They found two important things in this study.
First there was NO correlation between taking treatments for high blood pressure at these lower blood pressure levels and having fewer heart attacks or dying.
But there was plenty of evidence of a correlation between dropping blood pressure too low and the chance of kidney injury with these Big Pharma blood pressure treatments.
“There was evidence that treatment may be associated with an increased risk of adverse events, such as hypotension, syncope, and acute kidney injury.”
So if you have blood pressure up to the 159/99 range, you might want to take this study in and show it to your doctor to decide if the medication is really worth it or not.
Unfortunately, it’s not just people with Stage 1 and lower Stage 2 high blood pressure that might be at risk.
Extra blood pressure treatments in seniors associated with “serious adverse events”
Here’s what another study (of over 4,000 people) showed:
When adults over the age of 65 were given “intensified” blood pressure meds after being admitted to the hospital for non-cardiac events…
…this was associated with an increased risk of “serious adverse” events.
“In this national cohort study of 4,056 propensity-matched older adults with hypertension who were hospitalized for non-cardiac conditions, discharge with intensified antihypertensive regimens was associated with an increased risk of readmissions and serious adverse events within 30 days and was not associated with a reduction in cardiovascular events or blood pressure at one year.”
The studies point to the idea that, for many people who are over 65, too many hypertensive medications are just too much.
And if you have blood pressure under 159/99 then the blood pressure meds may cause more harm than good.
Because of the way Big Pharma pushes these treatments, your doctor may not even know about this. But now you do. And that’s a very good thing.
Plus, these hypertension treatments are often associated with poor blood flow to the penis — and that causes the man’s penis to shrink as he ages.
Best to use alternatives!
—-Important Message for Getting Better Penile Blood Flow—-
Vasodilation improves penile blood flow (and naturally lowers blood pressure)
There’s a special process called vasodilation that relaxes stiff blood vessels and arteries again…
Especially those stiff little penile arteries that feed blood to the male member.
With vasodilation, blood flow improves…
And better blood flow to the member means stronger rockiness, longer-lasting rockiness…
As an added benefit, vasodilation also naturally lowers blood pressure (way better than pills).
