View Full Version : High Blood Pressure on Raw and Medication
12-08-2007, 07:32 PM
Hi everyone. I am a raw vegan. My Mom has gone raw vegan a week ago. She has suffered form high blood pressure for years. SInce She's been on the raw vegan diet, her blood pressure has dropped dramatically and she's feeling great. She's obvious;y still taking her medication as it has only been a week since she's gone raw vegan (she was vegan before that) but her goal is to get off the medication completely. Does anyone have any experience with high blood pressure and a raw food diet?

I have helped my friend's mom get her bp under control is that she really needs to monitor her pressure because the meds will eventually make it too low. Once that happens she needs to reduce and eventually eliminate the meds..

I've been on 3 bp meds daily for about 15 years. I just had a checkup and my doctor took me off one medicine. (I've lost 37 lbs. since I went raw last December.) So far, my bp readings are staying good. I'm going to stay on the last two for 6 mos. and then have another visit (Her recommendation -- she expects that I can get off another, and then cut the last one in half.) I don't want to mess with this bp thing. If raw means that my bp will stay down, I'd love to get off the meds---forever. Howver, I am being cautious---A stroke just wouldn't be my idea of a good time........;)
