Alexandriaruthk,

The first time I came across hypertension in my literature search (I had experienced it earlier) I had doubts about essential hypertension. When my readings on free radical theories of disease progressed I came to believe that essential hypertension is caused by free radicals. The damage on arteries most likely consist in hardening of arteries and deposits in the capillaries. I am inclined toward naturopathy but I find that it has not divorced itself substantially from conventional medicine. It still sticks to risk factors when it comes to heart disease. To wit:

There is an abundant medical evidence that the following aspects of iet, habits, and life-style significantly increase the risk of having serious coronary heart disease a heart attack or stroke:.Diet saturated fats (cholesterol) and refined carbohydrates.Smoking.High blood pressure. Diabetes. Lack of exercise. Being overweight (intensifies other risk factors). Emotional stress and tension. "Type A" behavior (aggressive personality" (Lust, J. N.D. and M. Tierra, C.A., O.M.D. Natural Remedy Bible. 1990:204-205).

It is possible that the above quote is no longer the position of naturopathy today. Besides the book is the work of Lust and of Tierra who have a somewhat divergent approach. "When confronted with the task of completing a work by such a respected author as the late John Lust, I was faced with the possible conflicts between his purely naturopathic and my own somewhat eclectic approach, an approach based on the principles of Traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicines" (same source, pages xviii-xix).

For the present I take it that Lust and Tierra stand on risk factors in dealing with heart disease and heart attack.

I found out that risk factors are not causes and most of the time treatments based on them fail.

A risk factor is a device that is used to predict the probability of a person contracting a disease, say the high priests of risk factors, Dr. DeBakey and Dr. Gotto (DeBakey, M. MD. and A. Gotto. The New Living Heart. 1997). Risk factors belong in the logic of association not in causation.

When the concept of essential hypertension is dispensed with and the free radical theories of disease is used to explain hypertension, the latter's cause becomes plain and treatment and cure become clear. Antioxidants (vitamins, fruits, vegetables), chelation (ethylene-diamine-tetra-acetate) treat and cure hypertension. This way naturopathy deals with hypertension without the contradictions interposed by risk factors.
