Transcript

  • 1. Managing Blood Pressure With a Chocolate Shake! John H. Maher, DC, DCBCN, BCIM, Creator SuperFood Solution™ , Lifelong Wellness Made Easy
  • 2. Hypertension: The Silent Killer
    • The American Heart Association (AHA)
    • estimates approx. 73 mil US adults, age 20+,
    • have hypertension
    • Also known as the “silent killer” because:
          • Only 60% of adults who have hypertension are being treated for it, and
          • Two-thirds of those don’t have it under control!
  • 3. High Blood Pressure Defined
    • AHA defines hypertension as a
          • Systolic blood pressure (BP) of 140 mmHg or higher, or
          • Diastolic BP of 90 mmHg or higher
    • Almost 30% of adults have pre-hypertension , with systolic BP between 120 and 139, or diastolic BP of 80 to 89
  • 4. Morbidity
    • According to AHA’s “Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics, 2005 Update”:
          • High BP killed nearly 50,000 Americans in 2002
          • Was listed as a primary or contributing factor in 261,000 deaths
  • 5. Cardio Vascular Disease Risk
    • Starting as low as 115/75, the risk of heart attack and stroke doubles for every 20 point jump in systolic BP, or every 10 point rise in diastolic BP
    • People with pre-hypertension (BP >119/79), levels once considered normal, have twice the risk of heart disease as those with normal blood pressure
    • People with frank hypertension (BP >139/89) have four times the risk of heart disease as people with low BP. 1
  • 6. Chiropractic Wellness Care
    • Clearly, chiropractors who are promoting anti-aging and wellness care might consider what we can do naturally for patients with BP >120/80
    • WebMD reports that a special chiropractic adjustment can significantly lower high BP , a placebo-controlled study suggests. A second trial will hopefully soon be under way.
    • Still, other adjunctive approaches need to be considered
    • http://www.webmd.com/hypertension-high-blood-pressure/news/20070316/chiropractic-cuts-blood-pressure
  • 7. Milk Does A Body Good?
    • Milk proteins, both caseins and whey, have previously been shown to significantly reduce blood pressure in animal models
    • A 2006 study published in The Journal of Clinical Hypertension reported similar results in humans 2,3
    • &quot;Whey-derived peptides might be a viable option for pre-hypertensive and/or stage 1 (systolic >139, <159 mmHg and/or diastolic >99, <119 mmHg) hypertensive populations,&quot; concluded these researchers
  • 8. Logan Chiropractic Study
    • John Zhang, MD, PhD of Logan Chiropractic College , and I have authored a human study on a multi-ingredient whey and colostrum based zoonutrient powdered drink mix, formulated with liposomes to enhance bioavailability
  • 9. A Better Whey?
    • In 90 days, this dairy peptide formula lowered BP 13.4 mmHg and 8.2 mmHg, respectively 4
    • This result is:
          • Comparable to benefits seen with the proven best dietary approach, the D.A.S.H. diet
          • Equal to the average results of any one medication
          • Better than the results attained through exercise. 5,6,7
  • 10. Wheying Less!
    • Of even more interest, the control group in the study, who received 500 mg of calcium daily:
          • Gained an average of 6 pounds
          • While the special whey formula group gained no weight
  • 11. Growing List of Nutraceuticals
    • Nutraceuticals for hypertension:
          • Grape seed extract, quercitin, cocoa, green tea extracts, hawthorne berries
          • Hibiscus tea, stevia, lycopene extracts, soy isoflavones,
          • Fatty acids in oils like olive oil, flax oil, and fish oil 8-19
  • 12. Shake It Up, Baby!
    • The pathways through which BP is lowered are many, including:
          • Inhibiting angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE)
          • Blocking calcium channels
          • Promoting nitric oxide induced vaso-relaxation and diuretic activity. 20
    • Therefore, it is likely that combining several approaches in one may provide not only greater hypotensive effects, but other benefits as well
  • 13. Chocolate Shake for HBP
    • Melt 14 gm 60+ % cocoa (dark baking chocolate squares) www.bakerschocolate.com in 6 oz. high isoflavone (> 20 mg) soy milk, vitamin D and calcium enriched. Stir well.
    • Then, mix 12-18 gm of stevia sweetened, fiber enriched, vanilla flavored whey protein + ice. (Alternately, enjoy warm) Blend.
    • Enjoy twice a day as a “Heart Healthy Chocolate Shake”. If results are to come, they should be apparent within 60 days, and likely to improve further with time.
