High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure or hypertension causes damages to parts of the cardiovascular system such as arteries, heart, brain, kidneys and eyes. It is definitely a disorder you want to avoid if you want to live a long and healthy life.

High blood viscosity i.e. 'thick' blood is a contributing factor to high blood pressure. In one study 100 patients with thick blood (hyperviscosity) received treatment with Intranasal Light Therapy. After 5 days of regular treatment tests showed a significant reduction in blood viscosity.[i]

Another study that specifically used intravenous light therapy devices to test its effectiveness in reducing high blood pressure has been found to be effective.[ii]

There are a number of medications that can bring down high blood pressure, but they can be costly and all come with unwanted short- and long term side effects. Intranasal Light Therapy is inexpensive, natural and side effect free therapy that is worthy of first consideration before going down the path of dependedance on pharmaceutical drugs.
