  1. No!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't talk to your doctor about it. He will almost invariably say "NO" because he is a pharmaceutical shill, in most cases. Do fasting anyway. Start with intermittent fasting and go to the Reddit subreddits called /r/fasting and /r/intermittentfasting for guidance.

  2. Just wonderful, I been tryin to find out about "food that are good for high blood pressure" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across – Tenaniel Wonderful Eventuality – (search on google ) ? Ive heard some great things about it and my partner got amazing success with it.

  3. Dr. LeGrand, Does water fasting better than Juice Fasting or soup fasting ? I want to eventually cure diabetes. I have done intermittent fasting 16:8 2 meals for awhile, now try new method. Thanks.

  4. Actually fasting raises cortisol so it will increase the blood pressure and when you eat the blood pressure will stabilize.

  5. I have been eating one meal a day for 2 months and my blood pressure dropped from 150/108 at its worst to now a constant 113/68 heart rate 57. I'm on no medication for blood pressure

  6. Dr. LeGrand, in the video it was mentioned that a research had 174 hypertension patients go through a "pre-prep diet" before a long 10-11 day water fast. Do you have a clue on what kind of diet it was?
    Because it lowers blood pressure a whole lot more than the previous 3 week fast, and the only difference seems to be this ""pre-prep diet"", right? Thanks in advace

  7. The guidebook in this “Zοtοku Weebly” (Gοοgle it) high blood pressure option is simple and easy to read and fully grasp. In just Two nights, I was able to get all info I required from this. I have personally tracked final results ever since i began on it. On the thanksgiving holiday, I had it at 148/98 and within 1 month I lowered it further more to 116/78. .

  8. I’ve been extremely ill about 4-5 times.
    Each time I stopped eating for
    3-4 days. Each time I got 100% healthy.
