  1. Hey everyone. My mother and I are both on Day 15 of our Whole30. This is my third round, and I got my 51 year old mom to join in for the first time. I really wanted her to do this round with me because she has issues with her energy levels, has many menopause symptoms, and has gastrointestinal problems. She also suffers with high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Ironically, she has never weighed over 125 lbs, and has pretty much always tried to eat as healthy as she has known how. I thought that doing a Whole30 would help alleviate some of these symptoms, but so far she has had two bad scares where her blood pressure was really elevated causing dizziness, weakness, and just overall malaise. She hasn't cheated at all, exercises 3 times per week, and is still taking her medicine as instructed. I know that sometimes medical symptoms can get worse before they get better in the beginning of a Whole30, but I didn't think it would be this bad. I think it may be time for her to call it quits, at least for now, because she doesn't have medical insurance at the moment and can't afford to have any more health issues. I'm not here for any medical advice... more out of curiosity. What could be causing her blood pressure to worsen during a Whole30? Why would she be experiencing more hypertension issues now that she's eating "healthier" ? She hasn't had any negative hypertension symptoms in over 3 years since starting to take her blood pressure medicine.
