"I have lived with high blood pressure for many years and tried so many things to get it down. Not being really overweight, I still tried everything like exercise and walking every day. Due to my high blood pressure (176/133) I could not have a needed operation. This is when I found Lisa Nelson RD. I learned to be careful with my food and look out for hidden salts. I cut down on sugar and eliminated things Lisa suggested. As a result, and to the sheer delight of both myself and my doctor, my blood pressure dropped to normal!”"

"I'd been monitoring my blood pressure and it was higher than 150/100 most of the time. I followed all of Lisa’s recommendations and suggestions to lower blood pressure. My blood pressure is now 120/80 mmHg. I’ve never had to take medication. Thanks a lot for your help."

"I wanted to share some great news with you. I had my checkup with my cardiovascular doctor yesterday and my blood pressure, which was 150/90 two months ago, dropped to 130/80!!! The doctor was clearly impressed and asked what I had been doing, as he rarely sees folks being able to reduce their numbers. I told him I had been following the DASH diet and increasing my daily physical activity with running, cycling and a 30 minute walk at lunchtime. His response was “well you certainly don’t need a cardio doctor!A big thanks goes to the material you provided which educated me on what I needed to do."

"I lowered my bad BP numbers to good ones like 117/77 in just six weeks! Cut out all salt additives, lost 15 pounds and started running/ fast walking in the gym and some swimming. No meds before or after. You just might have saved me a lot of grief!"

"I took my blood pressure late yesterday and got a reading of 121/63. I thought this can’t be right so I did it two more times and got 121/62 and 119/62. What a difference from my usual 135/76 average!"
