The adrenal glands, located on the upper pole of the kidneys, are responsible for producing many hormones, including DHEA, pregnenolone, hydrocortisone, epinephrine, cortisol, and aldosterone. Each of these hormones provides a crucial function.
The adrenal hormone aldosterone is produced to regulate sodium levels in the body. Too low salt intake results in a rise in aldosterone production. This eventually causes a rise in blood pressure.
Conventional doctors, who do not search for an underlying cause of hypertension, will prescribe anti-hypertensive medications. But the best treatment for this situation is to increase salt intake which will result in lowered aldosterone levels.
I have seen salt supplementation “cure” many patients of their elevated blood pressures.
