A Natural Approach to Hypertension: Study Shows Positive Results

One out of every four adults suffers from hy­pertension or high blood pressure, as it’s more commonly called. If you have it – you might be completely unaware that you have it because there usually aren’t any obvious symptoms that alert you to the presence of this condition. That’s the reason why hy­pertension is often called the “silent killer.” Many people with hypertension don’t realize that anything is wrong until the disease causes a major complication, such as a heart attack or a stroke. There are some people, however, who experience headaches, blurred vision, and dizziness – symptoms that may lead them to their doctor’s office where the condition is diagnosed as a result of a routine blood pressure check.

The Journal of Human Hypertension, WebMD, Science Daily and a number of other media sources, including ABC News and Good Morning America, have reported the results of a study that was conducted by George Bakris, MD, director of the Hypertension Center at the University of Chicago Medical Center, and Marshall Dickholtz, Sr., DC, Chiropractic Health Center, Chicago.

A special type of chiropractic adjustment, known as an upper cervical correction, can significantly lower high blood pressure, a placebo-controlled study suggests.

“This procedure has the effect of not one, but two blood-pressure medications given in combination,” study leader George Bakris, MD, told WebMD. “And it seems to be adverse-event free. We saw no side effects and no problems,” added Bakris, director of the University of Chicago hypertension center.

Eight weeks after undergoing the procedure, 25 patients with early-stage high blood pressure had sig­nificantly lower blood pressure than 25 similar patients who underwent a sham chiropractic adjustment. Because patients can’t feel the technique, they were unable to tell which group they were in.

X-rays showed that the procedure realigned the atlas vertebra (the doughnut-like bone at the very top of the spine) with the spine in patients who received the proper procedure; however this was not the case in the sham-treated patients. The proper procedure called for adjustment of the C-1 vertebra, also called the Atlas vertebra because it holds up the head, just as Atlas held up the world in Greek mythology.

Compared to the sham-treated patients, those who got the real procedure saw an average 14 mm Hg greater drop in systolic blood pressure (the top number in a blood pressure count), and an average 8 mm Hg greater drop in diastolic blood pressure (the bottom blood pres­sure number). None of the patients took blood pressure medicine during the eight-week study.

Patient Testimonial:

“After a recent visit with my cardiologist, it came to my attention that my blood pressure was extremely high.  At that time it was 233/119. I was alarmed and began to do some research on how to naturally correct this problem. I am 70 years old, not overweight, eat well, and walk for exercise daily.  On the first visit, Dr. Gertner did a thorough exam including x-rays and discussed my problem.  He was very optimistic that he could help me, and that gave me hope. In only a few visits I saw my blood pressure begin to decrease.  After several months of care it is now reduced to a very normal 110/70.  In addition, I have less muscle tightness and have more energy.  My experience at UCC has been very positive and I recommend it without reservation.” – Sheila B./ NYC
