HOW TO NATURALLY LOWER YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE

High Blood Pressure? Read this



Most people think in order to lower their Blood Pressure, they either have to take prescription medication or a supplement. Do you know that you can lower it by just changing your diet? Namely a Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet. Now, hear me out. I put this to the test to see if it would work. I ate only Plant-based foods, such as beans, legumes, vegetables, fruits, whole grains & pasta. Before I started on this journey, my BP was around 160/90 all the time. My doctor wanted me to get on prescription meds, but I told her, let me try eating healthy, and see if I can lower it myself. Well, shockingly, to me, after eating this way for only 2 days, my BP dropped to a staggering 120/70!!! And it stayed that way. I even tested it and purposely went off my plan for one day, and I kid you not, the very next day, it was back up to 160/90, and even higher later on in the day. So, I got right back to eating WFPB, and the next day I checked it, it was back down to perfect!! And it has been normal ever since. Not only that but the pain I was having in my heel from Plantar Facisits was gone in one day! I had tried everything to get rid of the pain, but nothing worked.  I used to almost cry in pain every morning getting out of bed because the pain was so excruciating. I was shocked when I stepped out of bed and started walking....with NO PAIN!!! FOOD AS MEDICINE is a very true statement. 


To say I am excited about this way of eating is putting it mildly. I could go on and on about the huge benefits I have faced eating this way. Let me make this clear that this is NOT a diet..... it's a lifestyle change. You can't stick with it for a while, then go back to eating the artery-clogging foods you were and expect to stay healthy. 

***This is much better than taking Prescription drugs that have all kinds of side effects and don't work half the time. Also, Search: BP and a Plant-based diet and you will see MANY articles saying exactly what I am telling you here.

  1. The other thing that helps a lot is eliminating all the sodium from your diet not just the table salt but all the MSG and sodium containing preservatives found in most processed foods. I was on BP meds for years before finally figuring out that diet made all the difference.

    1. Yes, most definitely about eliminating or at least cutting down on salt! I use Himalayan Sea Salt and I have no problems with that, but I have cut way down on it.
