THE DOWNSIDE TO LOW BLOOD PRESSURE

THE DOWNSIDE TO LOW BLOOD PRESSURE

Have you ever been patted on the head by your doctor and praised for having low blood pressure? I have and it's frustrating.  Those of us that have chronic low blood pressure have, at one time or another, experienced the less-than-desirable side effects of this condition.  Chronic fatigue, poor circulation and vertigo or dizziness when standing are typically associated with low blood pressure but did you know that menstrual cramps, depression, anxiety, decreased libido and cravings (salty and sweet) can also be caused by this as well?

Do You Really Need Vitamin D?

Do You Really Need Vitamin D?

You've just been to the doctor and he or she has told you that your vitamin D is low and you should start taking a supplement. In fact, they may have made the off-hand remark that it's "just something everyone needs to take".  So why do you need it?  To help absorb calcium?  Probably not.  Mainstream medicine is on their soapbox about the importance of vitamin D to fight osteoporosis.  It's important to note that osteoporosis has been on the rise ever since they've been telling us that.  Vitamin D is actually the perfect recipe FOR osteoporosis.
