High blood pressure is considered a silent killer. It sneaks up on you, carries no symptoms and can put you at risk for heart disease. It can also feel like it came out of nowhere, like it did for survivor, Shermane Winters-Wofford.
Shermane thought she was perfectly healthy – until she suffered a stroke. And as it turns out, her family history of high blood pressure and heart disease had put her at risk all along.
High blood pressure, also known as HBP or hypertension, is a widely misunderstood. We often assume it affects those who are type-A, tense and aggressive. But the truth is, it has nothing to do with personality traits. In fact, you can be the most relaxed, calm person and still suffer from HBP.
This mixture is going to help your blood pressure problems in a very effective way.
Old German Blood Pressure Recipe
- 68 ounces filtered water
- 4 organic lemons, unpeeled
- 4 organic garlic cloves
- 4 drops lavender essential oil
- 1 thumb organic ginger root
- Wash the lemons well and cut them in tracks. Then, clean the garlic cloves and remove the rind of the ginger root.
- Place all the ingredients in a blender and mix well until you get a homogeneous mixture.
- Put the mixture in a pan and turn the fire on while you add the water in it slowly. Stir everything continuously until it starts boiling. Then, remove it from the fire and leave it to cool down.
- Strain the mixture and then pour it into glass bottles. Store the bottles in the fridge.
How to Consume:
Consume this drink once on an empty stomach, two hours before a meal, on a daily base.
If you think that you cannot take it because of the smell of the garlic, you do not have to worry about that, because the lemon and the ginger combined together neutralize the strong smell of garlic.
Do not forget to shake the drink well before drinking it, because the ginger will probably remain at the bottom of the bottle. Enjoy this powerful and beneficial mixture!
