Ninety-five percent of all hypertension is controllable.
Hi I’m Donna, a woman of color born on the island of Jamaica, living in New York, and am an Integrative Health Coach. In 1996 my Mother died from ovarian cancer and right after I was diagnosed with high blood pressure.
Within a year of taking Diovan blood pressure medication I developed a dry hacking cough.
The cough was constant and ongoing for nine months, and with every cough I was quietly wetting myself and wearing a pad daily, before I was able to get rid of it. From the deteriorating and debilitating effects that had on my health, I intuitively knew I would not live long if I didn’t make major health and lifestyle changes.
I knew I had to manage my high blood pressure differently, if I wanted a life and to live, and to recover from the damaging side effects of my doctor prescribed medications.
From the unique perspective of being an overmedicated patient I reshaped my diet, lose 30 lbs., learned to cook delicious and varied whole foods for my family, control my stress and deepened my spirituality in the process. Automatically, I decreased my dependence on drugs and was freed from their dangerous side effects.
My about me and my high blood pressure journey, the different medications I have taken, their side effects, my allergic reaction, and my many alternative treatments have transformed me into living a healthier lifestyle.
You should know that hypertension is the third leading cause of death worldwide. The higher your blood pressure, the shorter is your life expectancy. Be aware of how obesity contributes to this disease and also of the many changes happening within your body after starting your medications. It is important to express your concerns with your doctor.
The top questions people always want to know about me are: “How do you maintain your normal blood pressure? How did you lose the weight? How do you keep it off? How does your faith help you with staying fit? How did you learn to cook food that’s good for you and tastes good? Can you show me the workouts you do in your home to stay in shape and the specific exercises that slows the body's aging process?”
What most people don’t know about me is that I was a Business Banker for over thirty years, am an author, loves reading, playing with my twin seven years old grandkids, experimenting in the kitchen with surprising ingredient combinations and writing web pages for my website and weekly newsletters.
I am determined to show up as the best version of myself daily to help people reclaim their life from the devastating side effects of high blood pressure through my coaching program. Also, it means I was able to pick up my grandkids from school every day – when school buildings were opened; and work from anywhere.
These activities make me happy and keeps me focused on my goals.
