    “... [In] patients over the age of 60, beta blockers did NOT reduce [heart attacks], cardiovascular mortality or [the total risk of death].”
    — Franz Messerli, MD, European Heart Journal, 2003.

    Do not be fooled into thinking that just because a drug lowers blood pressure, or blood sugar or cholesterol that it must be good for you.

    The drug companies would like for you to believe this, but this is NOT necessarily so.

    The only thing that matter is how the drug affects your TOTAL RISK OF DEATH.

    I believe that potassium bicarbonate is vastly superior to beta blockers and the other blood pressure medicines for improving health.

    Ive been taking 1000 mg of potassium twice a day (2000 mg per day) in the form of potassium bicarbonate since 2000.

    My blood pressure dropped from roughly 140/80 mm Hg to 124/73 mm Hg.

    WARNING: Only take potassium under a doctors supervision. Too much potassium can kill you.

    Why not try potassium (bicarbonate) first?

    Daniel Amen, MD, a psychiatrist and author of A Magnificent Mind at Any Age, said on Public Television he uses natural treatments whenever possible.

    I use medication in my practice, but its NOT the first thing that I use.
    — Daniel Amen, MD, psychiatrist

    I always think about the least toxic, most effective treatment.
    — Daniel Amen, MD, psychiatrist

    And often, with [psyciatric conditions] [I treat them] with natural supplements [first].
    — Daniel Amen, MD, psychiatrist

    So in my mind, I think, why not at least try that first?
    — Daniel Amen, MD, psychiatrist

    I have to ask the same question about blood pressure.

    Why not try potassium (bicarbonate) first?
