Re: Drug Resistance
Check the way you are "breathing". You may be a "hidden hyperventilator". Three internist and one cardiologist did not recognize this was a problem for me. Went to a hypertension specialist at a medical school and that was the first thing he noticed. Got a cheap prescription and it has worked.
If you are a hidden hyperventilator or what may be referred to as a "sighing breather" you breathe too shallow and exhale too much carbon dioxide. This causes the vital organs to be deprived of oxygen. Without sufficient amount of carbon dioxide the red carpusles will not be able to release oxygen to vital organs causing body to panic, shooting adrenalin, raising bloodpressure.
There is a simple blood test for CO2 deficiency.
You should breathe with tummy going out and in and not shoulders up and down. Take deep breaths and slow exhales.
