Like other medications, antihypertensive drugs are no stranger to side effects; commonly reported ones include dizziness, diarrhea, and lightheadedness.
While you shouldn’t stop taking any medications without your doctor’s consent, switching out your morning cup of coffee for a mug of black tea or green tea may help you get better control of your blood pressure.
As the weather warms and trees and grasses begin to bloom, the challenges of seasonal allergies also rise. The condition is called allergic rhinitis or hay fever and affects 19.2 million U.S. adults and 5.2 million children.1 Many doctors lean heavily on prescription drugs to alleviate symptoms.
(Natural News) Censorship by the mainstream media and Big Tech of early treatment options for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) resulted in hundreds of thousands of needless deaths, says Dr. Peter McCullough.
(NaturalHealth365)Over five million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease. While most people think of Alzheimer’s as a disease that merely results in cognitive decline, the disease is the 6th leading cause of death within the U.S. and kills more than prostate cancer and breast cancer combined each year.
As heart disease deaths begin to decrease, deaths from Alzheimer’s disease have been increasing. A recent study found a link between low intake of flavonoids and dementia when compared to individuals who had a higher intake of flavonoid-rich foods. This discovery may be significant in preventing and treating this health crisis in the future. →

(NaturalHealth365)Can we really prevent life-shattering illnesses such as dementia with natural health strategies? Breaking new science says that we can!
It’s estimated there are 5.8 million American’s living with Alzheimer’s, a debilitating illness that strips a person of their cognitive function and independence. Families suffer as they watch their loved ones slowly forget who they are.
According to the pharmaceutical industry and the media, ‘there is no cure.’ But, we now know that to be untrue. And, for those in doubt, just look up the work of Dale E. Bredesen, MD. But, there are many other physicians doing fantastic work in the area of neurodegenerative disease. →
(Naturalhealth365) For millions of people around the globe, sipping a steaming cup of freshly-brewed tea is a relaxing and beneficial ritual. For example, loaded with flavonoids and polyphenols, black, green and herbal teas are known to offer important health benefits. Yet, shocking laboratory research has revealed that your trusty “cuppa tea” might not be so healthy after all. →
(NaturalHealth365)Flavonoids – compounds found in certain fruits and vegetables – are known for their ability to protect us from toxins, environmental radiation and (ultimately) the oxidative damage that causes disease. Over the past decade, one flavonoid in particular has been studied for its immune-boosting, heart health and anti-aging benefits, with multiple studies showing quercetin’s ability to increase life span.
Recently, a new meta-analysisdug into the incredible heart benefits of quercetin, finding that supplementation was effective at lowering blood pressure. But, beyond that, it also offers a number of other health benefits that lower the risk of heart disease, such as reducing excessive amounts of cholesterol and reducing the risk of atherosclerosis. →
(Natural News) Cancer has been on the rise in recent years, with statistics from the American Cancer Society (ACS) estimating a grand total of more than 1.7 million new cancer cases in the US. Researchers from the ACS found that at least 42 percent of these newly diagnosed cancer cases – about 740,000 – are avoidable. This includes the 19 percent of cancers caused by smoking and the 18 percent caused by a combination of excess body weight, high alcohol intake, poor nutrition and lack of physical activity. Certain lifestyle changes help reduce the risk of cancer, but nature can also bring some surprising cancer-fighting benefits that will help you stay healthy and cancer-free. →

To clarify (if you’re new to that term), flavonoids are a group of phytochemicals that have been studied for many years. Now, new research is showing that increasing flavonoid intake has the potential to help protect you from cancer and heart disease. →
