You see high blood pressure rarely makes itself known in the early stages. Most times after years of silently doing its damage to the brain, kidneys and heart, and you are experiencing health issues before being diagnosed.

My body did not adjust well to the side effects of taking diuretics. Everything about me changed. I was dizzy all the time, my legs and tongue would swell, and I developed a persistent cough.
I was constantly having my prescription changed because of all the different side effects. I did not like how I was feeling, so I started researching about different medications that controlled blood pressure, their benefits and side effects; and also on what alternative measures were out there.
Initially it was all about me, focused on the improvement of my health. I researched practically everything about this insidious disease, studied nutrition and the effect it had on my body's insulin, my blood sugar levels, and what the body needed to stay healthy and vibrant.
I went further in my research and learned the basic concepts in dietary nutrition, how overall health and in particular obesity is driven by dietary composition - the biology of foods.
In 2018 I completed a year's study program at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I wanted to be able to help myself, to heal the body using the foods I eat, along with my doctor's supervision.
