How To Use Diet And Lifestyle To Lower Blood Pressure

Almost a quarter of the worldwide adult population has high blood pressure, or hypertension, an inflammatory disease and a leading cause of heart disease. Sadly, anti-hypertensive medications are not that successful, and well over half of those who have hypertension are not treated adequately. In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. George Papanicolaou, Dr. James DiNicolantonio, and Dr. Casey Means about the dangers of high blood pressure and how to lower it with diet and lifestyle. Dr. George Papanicolaou is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and is board certified in Family Medicine from Abington Memorial Hospital. He is also an Institute for Functional Medicine practitioner. Upon graduation from his residency, he joined the Indian Health Service. In 2000, he founded Cornerstone Family Practice in Rowley, MA. In 2015, he established Cornerstone Personal Health, a practice dedicated entirely to Functional Medicine. Dr. Papanicolaou joined The UltraWellness Center in 2017. Dr. James DiNicolantonio is a Doctor of Pharmacy and a cardiovascular research scientist. He serves as the associate editor of the British Medical Journal’s Open Heart, a journal published in partnership with the British Cardiovascular Society, and is on the editorial advisory boards of several other medical journals.
