In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

on getting off of the blood pressure medicine. That is my goal so it is nice to hear that it can be done. I am down to 1 medicine a day and my blood pressure is in the normal to just below normal range. I track it about 3-4 times a week.

Hi. I am new to this form. I was previously on high blood pressure medicine, but I have been off for about 4 years now. I managed to get my pressure down by embracing a vegetarian diet and increasing my physical fitness.
I monitor my blood pressure on a daily basis, but I did not want to be on blood pressure medicine in my 30's. So far I have been successful at it and decided to join this board for added support.
