Acupuncture Treatment for High Blood Pressure in Miami
High Blood Pressure
Did you know that 1 in 3 adult Americans have a high blood pressure? And since having high blood pressure does not usually show any signs or symptoms, it would be great to have your blood pressure regularly checked, especially if you have a family history of this condition.
Also known as hypertension, high blood pressure (HBP) is a condition in which one’s blood pressure stays consistently high for a long period of time. High blood pressure is known to be a “silent killer” because it can go on for years without being detected, as there are usually no signs and symptoms associated with it. Having this condition is dangerous because it can eventually lead to problems like heart disease and stroke.
Acupuncture: A Non-Drug Treatment
Acupuncture and high blood pressure involves the insertion of thin needles into specific acupuncture points in the body. Stimulating the invisible pathways or meridians which connects a body part to another, done through needle insertion, sends impulses to the brain which activate different areas in the body, help manage pain and restore optimal health.
In acupuncture blood pressure treatments, the particular acupuncture points linked to the cardiovascular system must be stimulated. Studies conducted on acupuncture’s effect on hypertension led to patient participants’ experiencing a noticeable drop in their blood pressure (BP). Other studies have also shown that other beneficial changes follow, such as decreasing the risks of:
Peripheral Artery Disease
Acupuncture high blood pressure treatment helps reduce the need for HBP medications which has a lot of side effects such as: headache, dizziness and nausea, skin rashes, diarrhea and even feelings of nervousness and fatigue. Acupuncture and high blood pressure can then be applied as a drug-free alternative that is sure to be as successfully effective as maintenance meds in lowering BP.*

5 weeks ago a friend of mine referred me to Dr. Forman. I was feeling pretty bad. I was feeling a lot of fatigue, I was feeling tired all the time, I was bloated, I couldn’t focus and I was uncomfortable…really, really uncomfortable with everything that was going on with me. It’s been 5 weeks now and I actually feel fabulous. My bloating has gone away and that’s wonderful. I have more focus, which is something I was struggling with a lot for many years, and I have done a lot of things, but not until I came here did I get my focus back, I feel more energy, I’m actually staying up later and feeling really, really good. Overall, I’m super, super happy and super grateful. Thank you.
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Forman’s for about 5-6 weeks. When I first came in here I was suffering from very low energy, I had problems with my thyroid, weight gain, brain fog, hair loss, dry skin. I started his program immediately and I’m now in my 5th week and I’m feeling almost 100% better. I cannot thank him enough, I’m so grateful. My energy level is way better, my skin is better, my thyroid [symptoms] is under control, I’m almost off my medications and feel like my normal self. I sleep well, I’m actually losing weight so I’ve gained muscle, and I just feel overall 100% better. I’m so grateful to the doctor. I hope if you are thinking of coming here you will take Dr. Forman very seriously because I am very happy with the results. *
My name is William and I’ve been a patient of Dr. Forman for about 5 weeks now. I came here originally complaining about issues related to my blood pressure and blood sugar, lack of energy and some sinus problems. I’m happy to report that just a few weeks after coming here I noticed a considerable difference on those symptoms. I’m a lot happier and those numbers have gone down thanks to the knowledge I’ve gained here and the medication. It’s been a relatively easy program to stick to and again, I’m very thankful. *
Hi. My name is Kelly and this is Conner. Conner has been seeing Dr. Forman for about 4 months and he is completely healed in my eyes. He’s a happy baby now. No more congestion and bronchial issues like we had before. We both had had the same issues and I’ve been seeing Dr. Forman for about 9 months and once I started feeling a lot better I realized my son had the same issues and he needed to start going as well. As a mom, I feel really bad that my baby was on prednisone, nebulizers, and albuterol for pretty much the first 2 years of his life. And now, with Dr. Forman’s help, my baby is completely well. He has not been sick since he’s been seeing Dr. Forman. I feel like now, when he get’s a cold it won’t turn into something where he needs to go the doctor every time. He can have a cold like a normal child does. So, thank you Dr. Forman. And if I can just get through to one person, because I’m not a holistic person myself, to just try it to see what it can do for you and your family, please, please do so.

Hi. My name is Adriana Foster and I would like to make a testimonial for Dr. Forman. I’ve been in his program for 3 months and the difference between the person that I was when I first came here and the person I am now is huge. When I came here I was in a really, really bad place emotionally and physically. I felt really bad. I had really bad depression and anxiety. I can really say that is almost completely away, my life is back, I feel like I’m back on track, like I am back in the world and I can function. And I will always be grateful for that. It’s just totally worth it. So if you’re seeing this, listen, there’s a way out…Dr. Forman. Thank you. *
