Drugs are harmful to the body and can damage organs. You are right to seek other alternatives. It is absolutely not true that salt causes high blood pressure. There is NO scientific study that shows this. Having said that, the typical Morton type salt you buy is loaded with chemicals (like Aluminum) and is heated to 1,100 degrees when making it. All the electrolytes are removed, leaving this white, blanched, chemicalized, granulate that they call salt. Go to the health food store and buy some "air dried sea salt" that contains electrolytes and for every quart of water you drink, eat 1/4 teaspoon of this salt. Salt is where your body gets the Chloride ion to make stomach acid. These low salt diets promote all kinds of problems with the body, from acid indigestion to adrenal problems. Don't listen to the people promoting low salt. It's ridiculous advice. And as well, don't listen to the advice to eat low fat, that is equally as ridiculous. Fat is where the body derives it's sustained energy. Your heart runs on saturated fat and your brain needs fat to make the myelin and every cell in your body has membranes that are made up of fat. Low fat diets cause gallbladder problems and people develop all kinds of cravings. We were designed to eat fat. The "lipid hypothesis" that was promoted by the egotist, Ancel Keys in the 50's and 60's has been debunked long ago by nutritionists that understand how the body works. It's further a myth that fat is where cholesterol comes from. Cholesterol is a lipo protein (bile salt). If you are taking any of those junk statin drugs, you will find that your arteries will be thin and make you susceptible to strokes and that is why doctors are so concerned now about blood pressure. Also, the statin drugs deplete your body of CoQ-10 that is necessary for good heart function. High blood pressure is now linked to infection that does not show up on typical lab blood tests (often viral), also a deficiency in minerals due to low stomach acid production, toxic liver (can be from taking drugs like the statins), weak kidneys, and heavy metal toxicity (especially from the teeth where amalgam fillings, crowns with amalgam undercoatings are put on, and root canals that are loaded with toxic heavy metals. There are several dietary things you can do for high blood pressure that will definitely help. Limit your animal proteins to once per day, at lunch preferrably, and eat lots of plant based proteins such as beans, mushrooms, nuts, and grains that have been soaked over night to remove the phytic acid. Avoid ALL pasteurized dairy products and do drink raw milk and raw dairy that has been aged over 90 days. Avoid ALL soft drinks and ALL processed foods, especially anything with MSG (natural flavorings is a sneaky way of labeling this). Drink lots of water and don't forget the air dried sea salt. Eat more cultured foods and make keifer from raw milk, it is very good for you. And get lots of sunshine and exercise each day. good luck
