Sue S. – Reversing High Blood Pressure With A Plant-Based Diet
I am a competitive tennis player (USTA 4.0 ranking), and I love to hike, swim and play golf.
Two years ago, if you looked at me you would think I was very fit… even I thought so.
BUT I had stroke-level High Blood Pressure and my doctor convinced me to start medication to get my hypertension under control. All the exercise I did and the “healthy diet” I was eating with lean meat and low-fat dairy wasn’t helping.
Then my sister recommended that I try eating a whole food plant-based diet. She already had our mother eating this way and we were all shocked that it had reversed her heart disease, surprising her cardiologist. I thought I should at least give it a try.
Within three months of changing to this way of eating, and working with my doctor to taper my medication, my high blood pressure was back into the normal range and has stayed normal for two years…even with the stress of running a small business and selling our house and moving.
