My daughter Christy was diagnosed with hypertension 2 years ago. She was 30 yrs old. Her father and grandmother had HBP and both died with massive heart attacks. Christy, who if determined to do anything--does, cut her sodium intake, which cut out most packaged (processed) and fast foods. Within 6 mos. she had lost 40 lbs and decreased her medication by 75%!! She has educated me in healthy eating habits and proven that simple, the closer to nature --the better! Herbs, spices, grass-fed beef, chicken, fish-- dark chocolate. There is no deprivation---just a very new, exciting and DELICIOUS way of living. I'm so very proud of her.
