Can A Hoodoo Potion Really Lower High Blood Pressure?




Discover the magic of a Hoodoo Potion








As many of us have heard before, hypertension is a silent killer. Most times we are told that it must be maintained by taking some form of medication. However, there are ways of managing your hypertension by lifestyle. This is very much in the way of Hoodoo practice.

In the time of the development of the Hoodoo style of religion, the people who created the religion were not often afforded the opportunity to see doctors. There for a large part of Hoodoo is about the physical healing of the body through the use of plants and herbs.


Let's take a trip back in the time of new beginnings. Let go to Genesis 1:29 Here God said " I gave you every seed bearing fruit of the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food." Now knowing this, what can we infer? What you put in your body affects your body. Seeds are important. You want your food to have seeds.


There is an expression that says let they food be they medicine and thy medicine be thy food. This is attributed to the father of medicine but there is no proof that he actually stated. This is the wisdom that the ancients knew and was passed down to the Root workers and doctors in the time of Antiquity.


Do not start any regimes without consulting a medical professional.


So if you are someone that likes to drink more than you eat, then this blog is for you.


We have two recipes. You will need a few herbs...





Herb For Your Infusion:

*Hibiscus- this flower is good for blood pressure for several reasons. The part of the plant we are using in this recipe are the calyxes. From this you get Calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, vitamin a, and vitamin C. By drinking and infusion of this tea, one is able to lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. It also has antibacterial properties namely against e coli. IT helps to promote weight-loss as well. This is also a plant that is good at helping the kidneys because it acts as an diuretic. So we can see that this plant has many reasons for being beneficial to helping control hypertension.


*Ginger- this Root herb is great for many things. It is also able to lower blood pressure. Studies in humans and animals have shown that ginger reduced blood pressure. It is also good for inflammation and cholesterol as well. Ginger helps to keep blood clots from forming which makes it more difficult for blood to flow through the vessels of the veins.


*Lime- Limes help with hypertension as well, They also help with skin and weigh- loss. Limes contain potassium, vitamin A, B,C, and D, calcium, and magnesium. When it comes to heart health the potassium and magnesium are paramount and Limes are a good source of these minerals, Potassium lowers blood pressure and increases blood circulation, this reduces the risk for heart attack and stroke. There is thought that limonins which is a compound found in Limes might even help with the reduction of cholesterol.


The Recipe:

The main ingredient in this infusion will be the hibiscus. You'll need about 1 cup of hibiscus to 6-8 cups of water. You are going to combine the hibiscus with the water and bring it to a boil. Cut the ginger into pieces and add it to the boiling water. Once it begins to boil you will let it simmer for about an hour and let it sit overnight. The next morning you will strain the hibiscus from the now red colored water. You can then recover the flowers with water and repeat the process making sure to get all of the compounds out of the flowers. If you can get your flowers to be devoid of color you have done an amazing job. Then you can juice the lime one or more and add it to the infusion mixture. Sweeten with Orange juice or honey. Enjoy one glass 3 times a day. Being sure to monitor your blood pressure.
