The doctor prescribed medication for hypertension and I was put in a regimen of three different pills daily in response to my blood pressure having gone to 200+/100+. I have been on blood pressure medication ever since.
After getting on the medication I met Regina and Marshall Cussell who told me all about wheatgrass, and so I ordered the juicer and my first batch of fresh wheatgrass.
Here’s what happenned.
May 15 was my first day of juicing and drinking 2 oz. of wheatgrass juice. On this day my blood pressure was 208/110.
May 22, I wasn’t prepared to read what my blood pressure monitor reported: 130/75. Let’s see what the coming week brings, I told myself.
Having lived for so many years as a prime candidate to become a statistic, you can understand why I gave my blood pressure monitor little rest during the second week. Every day the numbers were in a range I have not even come close to for some 25 years.
May 29, my blood pressure was down to 111/66. I felt good and was happy.
Would I be able to stop taking those blood pressure pills?
June 5, three weeks after beginning my daily routine of drinking wheatgrass juice, the blood pressure monitor advised me of a 136/86 reading. Isn’t that exciting news!
The readings on June 12 and 15 confirmed my stunning progress.
On June 25 and 40 days had passed since embarking on this journey of hope. I press the start button on my blood pressure monitor. The purring of the inflation cuff wrapped around my wrist lasts about a millennium, but stops after 57 seconds — 135/68 is the reading. Is this a new lease on life? The Silent Killeris much less likely to count me as a victim. Will I soon be able to announce, “Who wants my pill dispenser?”
