Just went to the doctor and my blood pressure was 150/102
I'd start by asking what it was before you went primal. If it is a little lower than it was when you started, I'd count it as a success thus far. If it is still the same..I'd keep at it.
.....stopped taking my medications, HOPING that I wouldn't need them!
I, for one, have HBP. Mine is a litte higher than yours and I need to lose about the same amount. I am still on mine as the alternative to NOT being on them right now is something I am not willing to entertain. I hope that you continue with your success you have had thus far, and reconsider taking them again until you get where you want to be.
I've lost 25 pounds (much less than I hoped for after reading some of the success stories) but have well over 75 more to go. I'm not quitting though!
Bravo!!! Like you...I also have lost about 20lbs thus far in about 2 months. I might have lost more if I just lay off the sauce...
Has anyone out there been able to quit blood pressure, cholesterol, and/or diabetes medications and how long did it take?
Yes...of course. I have a friend who is my inspiration. He was 5'9" and about 310lbs HBP and some other ailments to include arthritis. In about 8 months...total primal....total low carb, no alcohol or beer, and no cheat days ( 20 carbs a day ) 6 day a week workout plan, went down to 195lbs. And from what I gathered from him...total medication free. He is a freak...and this is not normal from what I can tell. He hardly left the house and shunned all of his friends and family while he did what he needed to do. I would not recommend this approach...but it worked for him. I have been trying to get him to share his story here...but he is very shy, almost agoraphobic. I doubt he ever will. There are also many stories on the success thread that have had similar success dropping the meds.
I wish you luck on your journey! Your not alone my friend!
