Over the past 21 years, persons and patients following my recommendation, of immune system normalization, have repeatedly been able to successfully eliminate high blood pressure (hypertension), simply by restoring proper immune function via immune modulating components. During their healing processes, patients have progressively weaned from their high blood pressure medications until no longer needed. These repeated success cases brought me to the inevitable conclusion that high blood pressure is autoimmune/immune dysfunction related.
Over the same relative time period, the mainstream medical community has been slow to recognize that immune system initiated low-grade inflammation plays a role in cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel) disease.
More recently, participation of the innate and the adaptive immune responses, in mechanisms that contribute to inflammation in cardiovascular disease, have been recognized in Atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), and hypertension (High Blood Pressure).
From both my experience, and the recent medical findings, it is clear to me that high blood pressure development involves an immune system mediated chronic inflammatory process. Knowledge of cellular and molecular players in the progression of hypertension has dramatically improved in the last decade by assessing the central role of innate and adaptive immunity cells and pro-inflammatory cytokines, driving the development of target organ damage, such as the blood vessels, kidneys and heart.
A dysfunctional immune system with an imbalance of regulatory immune cells and their cellular products such as cytokines, create high blood pressure and lead to organ damage; particularly to the blood vessels, heart and kidneys. By restoring the immune system to normal function, blood pressure will most often normalize; preventing or even reversing organ damage.
With my immune restoration healing protocol utilizing natural immune modulating components I have witnessed a wide variation in healing times in patients with high blood pressure, ranging from 3 to 12 months. The average healing time frame would appear to be 6 to 8 months.
Furthermore and most importantly; by restoring proper immune function and eliminating autoimmunity, the patient gains a strong position moving forward in regard to the ability to avoid the entire list of autoimmune conditions, most of which are classified as “the diseases of aging.”
Eventually, the public will come to understand that these conditions can be easily overcome by simply feeding the immune system, and restoring balanced immune function.
