Remedy Description

Besides stress and other psychological factors, hypertension is caused by

the irritation of various nerve centers owing to nutritional deficiency,

retention of toxic wastes and lack of organic alkaline elements; for

example, severe hypertension that leads to violent outbursts has been

quickly cured in many patients with sufficient doses of niacin (vitamin

B3); pyridoxine (vitamin B6) in organic form relieves the hypertension

associated with nervous stress.

Pecans: a potent source of organic pyridoxine, pecans rank among the

very best of therapeutic foods for hypertension and other nervous

disorders; 10-15 whole raw pecans per day.

Yeast: active yeast dissolved in a cup of warm water and taken on an

empty stomach provides a powerful dose of all important B vitamins in

organic form; brewer's yeast, though more palatable, is technically

'dead' and thus not as potent a source of nutritional elements; 1 small

packet of granular active yeast per cup warm water, twice a day.

Lecithin: the most basic building block of brain and nerve tissue, organic

lecithin may be taken as liquid extract of soy beans or in the form of raw

egg yolks (as for fatigue).

Wheat germ oil: nature's best source of organic vitamin E, which is

essential for optimum nerve function; 1 tsp daily after breakfast,

another after dinner.

Carrot, beet, cucumber juice: alkalizes the kidneys and blood, thus

eliminating the excess acidity that is usually a contributing factor to

hypertension; also provides organic minerals and active enzymes

which enhance nervous functions; 10 oz/3 oz/3 oz, 2 pints daily.

Other beneficial foods: carrot juice; celery juice; molasses; wheat germ;

black grapes; apricots; apricot kernels (for vitamin B17); turnip greens.

Foods to avoid: hot peppers; mustard; cooked meats, especially pork; all

preserved and canned foods; strong coffee and tea; refined sugars,

especially sweet soft drinks; alcohol.
