An Italian Study showed that blood pressure elevations that appear to occur just in the doctor’s office are just as dangerous as sustained hypertension. Both the blood pressure and the weight increased substantially more in the group with White Coat hypertension than in the consistent hypertension group. Both groups developed an equal amount of left ventricular hypertrophy. Medications are often needed to control hypertension. However, we also like to use nutrients, herbs and lifestyle changes in place of or in addition to drugs. The Kaufman technique by neutralizing trigger points with gentle hand pressure can give long-lasting results as well.
