Dr. Berg talks about the link between high blood pressure and insulin resistance. Insulin resistance, which is high insulin stiffens your arteries, disrupts the endothelial layer of your arteries, which start the hardening of the arteries as well as the cascade effect of cholesterol and calcium to accumulate in the arteries.

High insulin (insulin resistance) creates inflammation in the arteries. This condition also causes sodium retention and a loss of potassium because insulin is necessary to allow this mineral in the cell.

Diuretics also have a side-effect of causing insulin resistance. The treatment of hypertension is mainly medications because we are told that there is no cure, only treatment. The pathophysiology is, in reality, a disruption of the artery wall creating vasoconstriction, stiffness and less elasticity.

The additional symptom of hypertension is headaches and a risk for stroke and heart attack. The home remedies involve actions to lower insulin – cutting out sugar, adding vegetables to get your potassium and even apple cider vinegar can help.
