Good Morning America jumped all over this, and for good reason! The news spread quickly about how NUCCA proved to reduce blood pressure in a pilot study published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Human Hypertension.
It was a ground-breaking study showing that NUCCA improves the physiological function of individuals. This can spread beyond hypertension and aids the autonomic nervous system which controls many aspects of the body, including digestive function, saliva production, vision, urinary tract function, heart rate and breathing.
In this 8-week study, there were 50 Stage 1 Hypertensive patients on two blood pressure medications. They were all taken off of their medications while observed by a medical doctor at the University of Chicago. Half of them received NUCCA care and the other half received a sham adjustment and were part of the placebo group. Because of the gentleness of the adjustment, many of those adjusted thought they were in the placebo group.
Those in the adjustment group had a reduction of blood pressure equivalent to two blood pressure medications taken in tandem. At the end of the 8 weeks, the blood pressure was still reduced. Those in the placebo group had essentially no change.
If you have high blood pressure, come in for NUCCA care and see how it works for you. If your blood pressure drops, you can talk to your medical doctor about changing your meds.
