16 Jan How I fought High blood pressure
As a CEO of The Performance Retreat, I would love to share with you one of my own personal health stories and how I’ve turned it around.
How it started!
At the age of 23 I was told that I had high blood pressure. Since high blood pressure ran in my family, the doctor told me, that there was not much I could do, but would need to take medication for the rest of my life. I started taking the medication which worked, but I always wanted to find another way without taking medication for the rest of my life.
I was slim, but I wasn’t much into exercise and I didn’t eat very healthy. A short while after I met Johan and all of this changed. I started to take an interest in how the body worked and how to lead a healthy lifestyle.
I learning how food was not my enemy and the importance of eating simple, healthy food that nourished my body and the correct nutrition that I needed.
By eating properly I found the energy levels to start working out. I loved joining Body Combat classes which gave me a place to let go of stress away from my work.
After a while, I noticed the change in my health and blood pressure levels, which my Doctor was completely surprised about. He continued to monitor my blood pressure levels over a few months and saw consistent results from my lifestyle change and gave consent that I no longer needed the medication.
I’m overjoyed that this chapter is over in my life and that I found a way that I can heal my body, without medication. This opened my world to that so much is possible by making good choices to the way you live and eat.
At the Performance Retreat, we believe that the body is magical in healing itself through lifestyle choices.
