Turning down the Heat

It’s a very scary word. Nearly one million Americans suffer some form of this brain
attack each year. The number one culprit? Hypertension, otherwise known as high
blood pressure. Learn how you can keep your blood flowing smoothly for years to come.

By Susan Weiner

February 2006

Joseph Reiss was short and burly, with a full head of white hair and lively brown eyes. Like most street-tough New Yorkers of his generation, he was a self-reliant man with an unpredictable resume who, over the years, supported his family as a bus driver, ice cream shop vendor, gas station owner and barkeep. He smoked cigars, drank whiskey and black coffee, ate steak for breakfast and popped jalapeno peppers into his mouth as snacks, savoring each one like a sugared candy.

One morning, Joe awoke to find that his speech was slurred, his movements awkward. The 68-year-old adamantly refused to see a doctor. Unable to feed himself or tie his shoes, and days after his right arm stopped working, his family—my family—brought him to a hospital. Over the next five months my grandfather deteriorated rapidly; he lost his ability to speak, developed agonizing bedsores and could not recognize some of us. In the end, withered and powerless to put thoughts into words, he died in his hospital bed.

Supplemental Help to Reduce Stroke Risk

It’s no secret that vitamin supplements can help reduce risk of stroke, in addition to other cardiac events and a range of illnesses. “Ideally, the bulk of the healthy ingredients we seek from supplements are best obtained directly through the diet,” says J. David Forbes, MD, founder and director of Nashville Integrated Medicine and board-certified founding diplomate of the American Board of Holistic Medicine (ABHM). However, there are several supplements that can be helpful to the heart and reduce stroke risk:

∗ CoQ10 is an antioxidant that encourages increased cardiac output and exercise tolerance.
∗ Biotin and chromium picolinate assist in controlling diabetes.
∗ Garlic has been shown to have anti-hypertensive and cholesterol-lowering qualities.
∗ Hawthorn, calcium, magnesium and potassium help relieve hypertension.

Forbes also recommends ginkgo biloba for reducing stroke risk, though he urges that it should not be used in conjunction with anti-coagulant prescription medications, or even aspirin, except under the supervision of a healthcare provider. “Ginkgo biloba has been shown in numerous studies to improve vascular elasticity and decrease platelet aggregation, an essential step in plaque and clot formation,” says Forbes. “It can also improve neurologic variables in patients with cerebrovascular disease, improve their EEG readings (brain waves) and protect the brain against hypoxic injury (injury from reduced oxygen/blood supply).”

An advocate of stress reduction as a necessary key to good health, Forbes suggests that, in addition to exercise, dietary changes and supplements, all o...
