Scientific research by the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute in USA showed that a diet rich in certain nutrients could prevent or reduce hypertension. This diet to lower blood pressure is called the DASH Diet plan (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension).
A person should take a diet rich in potassium, magnesium and calcium, and high in fruits, vegetables and low fat dairy foods, as well as rich in fiber. The diet should also be high in poultry, fish and nuts while being low in fat and red meat content, sweets and sugar-containing drinks.
This diet for high blood pressure reduced systolic blood pressure by 6mmHg and diastolic blood pressure by 3mmHg in patients with normal blood pressure. Those with hypertension dropped by 11mmHg and 6mmHg respectively.
In addition to its effect on blood pressure, it is considered a well-balanced approach to eating for the general public. If combined with salt (sodium) restriction, the blood pressure lowering effect is further enhanced.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a salt intake of less than 5g/day (about one teaspoonful). Generally, the salt intake by the average person is much higher and on the rise. Following an increase in dietary salt intake, the kidney normally synthesizes dopamine to increase salt excretion and blood vessel relaxation. However, this dopamine response is not seen in Chinese, thus Chinese are prone to dietary salt-induced hypertension.
Although this hypertension diet can prevent or reduce high blood pressure and thus protect the kidneys, for those patients with significant kidney failure, they might not be able to excrete the potassium. The DASH Diet would need to be modified and such patients should consult their own doctors.
People should take a proactive approach to disease prevention and take care of their own health. Apart from regular exercise, one should adopt a healthy eating habit. A nutritious diet is not expensive and it can be delicious.
Early detection and treatment of hypertension, diabetes mellitus and renal diseases are very important for long term health.

Can a Wheat-free Diet help you to lose weight and reduce Obesity, Heart disease, Auto-immune diseases & Cancer, even Alzheimer's disease & Schizophrenia or reverse Diabetes & pre-Diabetes? Recent research has also shown promising results that a Gluten-free diet showed a reduction in the symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Heartburn/GERD, ADHD, Asthma & allergies, even acne.
Watch the following videos by several doctors (Dr William Davies, Dr Sarah Hallberg, Dr Alessio Fasano, Dr David Perlmutter & Dr Rodney Ford) and decide for yourself whether you should adopt a Gluten-free diet if you are suffering from the above-listed medical conditions. Even unexplained diarrhea, headaches/migraines or chronic fatigue has been alleviated by going Gluten-free.
The case these doctors put forward based on research and empirical evidence from thousands of patients is that Wheat and Gluten contributes to this shocking host of diseases and chronic medical problems, and increasing the incidence of celiac disease and Autism.
What does Wheat & Gluten do to your body?
Foods containing wheat have an extremely high glycemic index (70+ out of a possible 100), that is the body suffers a sudden spike in blood glucose after a meal of food containing wheat. Add to that the fact that the wheat we are eating is completely dissimilar genetically to the wheat of the 1950's, after all the genetic modifications and mutations the plant has undergone.
The doctors also point out that Gluten causes prolonged periods of inflammation in the body, leading to many of the diseases most prevalent today. Ironically, foods containing wheat are actually appetite-enhancing and can cause sugar cravings.
William Davis MD - Wheat: The UNhealthy Whole Grain
The wheat of today is not the wheat of our mothers or grandmothers.
Modern wheat is the product of genetic manipulations that have
transformed its properties. Modern wheat is now a 2-foot tall,
high-yield semi-dwarf strain, different in both appearance and multiple
biochemical features from traditional wheat. Introduction of this new
strain of wheat was associated with the appearance of a long list of
health problems, along with weight gain and diabetes.
According to Dr. Davis, saying goodbye to all things wheat provides outsized and unexpected health benefits, from weight loss, to relief from acid reflux and bowel urgency, to reversal of diabetes, migraine headaches, and learning disabilities in children.
Dr. William Davis is author of the #1 New York Times bestselling book, Wheat Belly: Lose the wheat, lose the weight and find your path back to health (Rodale, 2011), now debuting internationally in over ten foreign languages. Wheat belly has helped spark a nationwide reconsideration of the conventional advice to "eat more healthy whole grains."
Formerly an interventional cardiologist, he now confines his practice to prevention and reversal of coronary disease in his practice in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Dr. Davis is a graduate of the St. Louis University School of Medicine, followed by training in internal medicine and cardiology at the Ohio State University Hospitals, and training in interventional cardiology at the Case--Western Reserve Hospitals in Cleveland, Ohio. He is also founder of the online heart disease prevention educational program, Track your Plaque.
Reversing Type 2 diabetes starts with ignoring the guidelines - Dr Sarah Hallberg | TEDxPurdueU
Can a person be "cured" of Type 2 Diabetes? Dr. Sarah Hallberg provides
compelling evidence that it can, and the solution is simpler than you
Dr. Sarah Hallberg is the Medical Director of the Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program at IU Health Arnett, a program she created. She is board certified in both obesity medicine and internal medicine and has a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology. She has recently created what is only the second non-surgical weight loss rotation in the country for medical students. Her program has consistently exceeded national benchmarks for weight loss, and has been highly successful in reversing diabetes and other metabolic diseases. Dr. Hallberg is also the co-author of www.fitteru.us, a blog about health and wellness.
Alessio Fasano MD - Spectrum of Gluten-Related Disorders: People Shall Not Live by Bread Alone
The cultivation of gluten-containing grains that were the backbone of
the agricultural revolution have also brought with them the
manifestation of conditions related to negative reactions to gluten.
These include celiac disease, wheat allergy and the "new kid on the
block" of the spectrum of gluten-related disorders—gluten sensitivity.
The autoimmune disorder of celiac disease is the most widely studied
condition on the spectrum. It affects approximately 1 in 133 people, a
rate that has doubled in the U.S. every 15 years over the past 35 years.
An estimate from the Center for Celiac Research puts gluten sensitivity
at 6% of the U.S. population. With current interest in the human genome
and microbiome, research is leading scientists to examine the
relationship between the intestinal microbiome and gluten-related
disorders. Currently the gluten-free diet is the only available
treatment for gluten-related disorders.
World-renowned pediatric gastroenterologist, research scientist, and entreprenuer Alessio Fasano, M.D., founded the Center for Celiac Research in 1996. The Center offers state-of-the art research, clinical expertise and teaching for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of gluten-related disorders, including celiac disease, wheat allergy, and gluten sensitivity. Trained in Naples, Italy, as a pediatric gastroenterologist, Dr. Fasano was recruited to the University of Maryland School of Medicine in 1993 and founded its Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition. Puzzled by the absence of children exhibiting symptoms of celiac disease in the clinic, he resolved to uncover the mystery of missing American "celiacs." His perseverance in the face of skepticism about celiac disease in the U.S. eventually led to his publication of the groundbreaking study in 2003 that established the rate of the autoimmune disorder at one in 133 Americans.
In early 2013, Dr. Fasano was appointed Division Chief of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition at MassGeneral Hospital for Children. He brought the Center for Celiac Research to Boston, where he heads the Mucosal Immunology and Biology Research Center, based in Charlestown, and is Associate Chief for Basic, Clinical and Translational Research for the Department of Pediatrics at MassGeneral Hospital for Children. He is a Visiting Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School.
