Experiences of the participants of the
study exceeding the normalization of their blood pressure
after change of nutrition and cease of medication
The 58 participants of the
study have reported experiences, observations, increases of
their health constitution, and improvements of their quality of
life, after having changed their nutrition and ceased
medication, which exceed the normalization of their blood
"Only after I have
changed my nutrition according to Dr. Schnitzer, all
parameters are in the lower normal range, so that my new
doctor is surprised about my health constitution. Sure,
it could go yet better, if I would live 100 % according
to Dr. Schnitzer's recommendations. Certainly, the
changes have been striking to such a degree, that I
recommend it to everybody, even to those who don't want
to know it. I couldn't feel better, and again I want to
say thanks for it. Also, the books make good
reading." Mr. A. B. (38), 29.11.2002.
of weight from 89 to 82 kg (height 191 cm). Fit like a
gym shoe. Such a condition I didn't have as a youngster.
Since (change) no more any disease. Since a few months,
I have taken a job in industry, which still stresses me
... too don't have time every day to prepare my food
myself ... in our canteen, to buy healthy components is
bound to the meat component. The carrots were taken away
from me, because they belong to the weekly menu

Schnitzer's recommendations, so I could avoid to be
chained for life to medication." Mr. W. Z. (46), 25.01.2003.
after cease of hypotensive medication and change of
nutrition I was feeling very well. The good condition of
my health has lasted, I'm stable, have hardly ever cold,
and the wish for sex too has returned." Mr. W. M. (64), 30.11.2002.
have measured my blood pressure, while writing this:
131/80 mm/Hg! I feel very well, enjoy life, can better
think, have reduced by 9 kg. I'm very well! My problem
is: It changes, as soon as I eat "normal
food". This I should never do again! Will I
succeed? I think highly of your therapy! Cordial thanks
for your advice, dear Dr. Schnitzer!" Mrs. K. K. (48),
in legs and hands and the headache disappeared
immediately. Rashes on the legs were off after about 1
year. The headache started again after 1 year, but since
avoiding black tea, has nearly disappeared. To sum up it
can be said, that I feel the effect of the fresh food
immediately. If eating for some days muesli, salads and
fruits, I feel easy and relaxed. After meat and boiled
food, I feel dull and depressed. Thereafter, mostly the
headache appears. Bothering are the relations to people
near to me. Most people make jokes of such a nutrition,
they don't tolerate it or even thwart it." Mr. G. B. (52), 02.12.2002.
headaches have disappeared, I'm no more at all tired,
mentally fully fit and vital. My life has changed to the
positive." Mr. H. K. (42), 13.02.2003.
reduced by 7 kg in 6 weeks, no headache, no backache,
thin hands, no more problems when urinating, more
performance of the complete body, no more dizziness.
Each day I get returned a small piece of my health. I
will recommend on this nutrition, and will always apply
it." Mrs. G.
B. (39), 14.03.2003.
feel vital, enjoying life, no more depressions, hands
and feet are slim again, no more shooting pains in the
heart, 6 kilo loss of weight. I hadn't believed it, but
I had no more anything to lose. After I suffered years
or even decades from hypertension, for which I got
prescribed Atacand plus, Aspirin cardio and because of
cholesterol Selipran, today I'm free of complaints!
Thanks, thanks, thanks! Before Christmas (just 3 months
ago), I was sitting around with lethargy and
depressions, in the nights I was weeping instead of
sleeping. I didn't know myself anymore, I had no more
inclination to live. Nevertheless, before I was a woman full of
the joy of living (56 years, after Polio in wheelchair).
After my husband couldn't anymore tolerate how I was
changing (thanks to the medication of our family
doctor!), he took me as an emergency case to Dr. G. W.
in Z. This one drew my attention to your booklet "Hypertension
Causes & Cure". After reading, I was
convinced: This is the way I want to go. I had, as I
said, nothing anymore to lose. And what do you know:
After keeping strictly to the diet, already one week
after startup I could leave off every medication! Now I
stick for 3 months to your diet and have no more any
difficulties. All blood parameters are normal! Still
nearly I can't believe it. Again I feel vital and
healthy, and as a beautiful side effect I have lost 6
kg. One risk factor remains: The lack of physical
activity. But I think, that with this healthy nutrition
I can continue to lead a good, satisfying life and again
dedicate my life to my artistic activities. I'm
infinitely grateful and recommend this diet to all who
want to know it. Often I'm asked, because one can see
the difference." Mrs. L. W. (56), 24.03.2003.
doctor was surprised, that somebody at all musters up to
go this way, but in principle he supported me, and even
attested me in writing my recovery. Loss of weight at
present 12 kg in 3 months. Blood pressure normal.
Regular digestion, better hair growth, no more noise in
the ears, no more dizziness, no more headache, colds
disappear faster and are no more so bad, less sweat with
nearly no odor, status of the teeth improving and less
film on the teeth, smoother skin, performance in sports
increasing. I feel like a new person, because all and every
complaints have ceased completely, so that I can't
anymore observe (feel) anything obtrusive. I only can
recommend to everybody to live in this way, because the
quality of life improves in every respect. At first felt
restrictions in nutrition disappear after some weeks,
and the aversion for the former type of nutrition
increases. All theses which Dr. Schnitzer has set up I
could observe in myself." Mr. M. F. (36), 24.03.2003.
complaints have disappeared in the shortest time. I feel
again physically fit and sleep restful. Without hunger,
I have lost 14 kg of weight, at a height of 173 cm and a
starting weight of 84 kg. In any case I will continue,
because the smallest bloomer (mistake) in the diet isn't good for
my health, although intentionally I cause and too
somehow sometimes need those bloomers." Mr. M. P. (31).
"Lost twenty pounds, have better digestion, no bloating, constipation cured, blood pressure greatly improved without medication.
I haven't started the blood letting yet to avoid the expense of visiting a doctor. I'll start when I am able to do it myself or have someone do it for me for low fee."
A. H. (65), 04.11.2001.
"I lost 5-7 pounds of flab, firmed up, and I have more energy. Also I feel better about myself and am much more aware of what I need to eat to remain healthy.
I plan to keep watching what I eat throughout the rest of my life using your suggestions, exercising, keeping my weight under control, meditating and relaxing taking deep breathes, and getting enough sleep. As I age I hope to keep my blood pressure under control to avoid the high risk of cardiovascular disease experienced by 50 % of our society. Thank you for your continued research in this area."
D. R. (52), 07.11.2001.
"I have no more palpitations or irregular heart beats. I feel happier than I have done for a long time. I have more energy.
I did not have to change my diet a lot as I have not eaten any fish, meat, eggs or poultry for over 30 years. We always had a bowl of salads in the evening and fruit in the morning. I only ate German rye bread, but now I bake my own bread with organic wheatflour milled at home just before baking. And I have sprouted organic grains and pulses. I don't drink or smoke, but I miss my home made chocolates."
J. U. (73), 07.11.2001.
"Feeling of over all health, stopped night sweats, no longer show signs of sleep apnea :) no more machine! Weight loss is slow, but not looking for loss, just tone, no more headaches.
You have changed my life. I have lived with this disease for over 12 years and feel the weight of the meds off my shoulders. I have shared my experiences with many friends who have diabetes, hypertension and general obesity. You are a life saver, thanks."

prone to sore muscles, increase of power, before in the
morning daily 4 press-ups and abruptly the power was
off, now each morning 10 press-ups with slow decrease of
power from 8-9 on. From the 11th week on again full
erection without time limit until ejaculation; this
returned all of a sudden. Then the head is okay too.
Weight loss about 9 kg, therefore also less cortisone,
7.5 mg every other day. After we were on a long journey,
the circle of friends were somewhat astounded about my
slimness. No more to take hypertension medication, is
treated with skepticism. Last week, I had appointment
for checkup of cardiac pacemaker and prostate
prevention. The cardiologists were impressed by the
results, but only bla, bla, bla, when I gave them my
kausale Therapie der essentiellen Hypertonie"
("the causal therapy of the essential
hypertension", the German therapy instruction for
physicians); sad. The urologist said I'm in good shape,
she too could lose 6 kg by reducing carbohydrates. That
was the best I could do. So, I'm at least happy for
myself. The only disturbing for the moment is my
oversized skin, which is flapping, but my doctress said
this would become better by the time. I'm born in 1934.
bloodlettings I would like to do because of the
diastolic pressure, but from the middle of May to the
middle of September we live rather self-sufficiently on
our sailing boat in Scandinavia. But after that, it will
start. The Social Insurance doesn't pay it. I don't know
yet, family doctor or nonmedical practioneer." Mr. P. Q.
lost superfluous pounds, and after some weeks I felt
more active, could better breathe, and felt healthier as
a whole. I can only recommend to every hypertonic
patient to inquire precisely about the disease and
alternative possibilities of treatment." Mr. H. E. (51), 13.05.2003.
reality, you can't compare before and after a heart
attack!!!!!! The more important is to know the
difference between medication and the 'Schnitzer-diet'.
Without my heart attack, I wouldn't be really
healthy!!!!! Except occasional nausea when changing
position, I'm top fit. The beginning, to change feeding
habits without a personal reason (like a heart attack),
is difficult. But it can protect you precisely from this
personal reason. Unfortunately, only after my heart
attack I started to intensively take care of my health!
Not to forget, I want to draw attention to the course of
diabetes. I inject now 3 x per week and only because I
deviate from the guideline. Another important cognition
for diabetics - I call it 'the diabetic loop'!! To sin
against the guidelines means to inject more, to inject
more means more hunger, more hunger means to sin more
against the guidelines. Not to speak about the
hypoglycemias, which you wouldn't get without
injections! These correlations can be reproduced by
everybody at any time. And for me it's a crime against
mankind, that the natural means aren't published!"
Mr. H. W. (56), 17.05.2003.
3 weeks, I reduced weight by 12 kg and was feeling
better already after the first week. On my next visit to
the family doctor, the result already could be seen. The
cholesterol was nearly within the normal range. Thanks
to Dr. Schnitzer, I'm feeling very well and again do
sports, which I couldn't with the betablockers. I'm
forever greatly obliged to him and try to give on his
theories in my circle of acquaintances. The most
important was, no more to be tired and again to enjoy
life. Too, I could start to do sports, it was like
starting a new life. I could feel again my body,
especially in the morning, and I take life more relaxed.
The most important was, that the second (diastolic)
value dropped below 100. Now it's frequently below 80,
what I never have thought to be possible. But as soon as
I 'sin', when once invited to eat normal food, I don't
feel well. In addition, it's no more tasty for me (meat
etc.)." Mr. H. R. (62), 19.05.2003. Message 1 year
later, in an e-mail: "Dear Dr. Schnitzer, 4 years
ago I discovered your website on the Internet, and
started to change my nutrition. After 3 months and 10 kg
loss of weight, my blood pressure nearly had normalized.
Now I'm always better, and I will be grateful to you
forever. Now being 63 years, I'm showing it to many
young people in inline skating, and my life is like a
changed man. Too my brother in law, who had extremely
high blood sugar values, now explains to me, that a
single slice of white bread drives his blood sugar up. I
had given him my old cereal mill as a present, and now
he is fascinated about his self-baked (whole grain)
bread. I can only repeat to say thanks. Might there be
more doctors like you. Sincerely H. R." (now 63),

way back to a life full of energy, and my general health
condition has improved a lot." Mr. I. F. (39), 21.05.2003.
feel very well, have no more the dizziness feelings
mentioned above, also no more 'indisposition'. My
stomach is excellent since change, no more heartburn. I
feel 'super', also since had no more a real cold (only
preliminary stages like a tickle in my nose, but for
only one day), while the rest of my family, who don't
want to cut out meat and sweets, in the meantime had
some serious colds. I'm "hobby-cyclist". There
too it's my impression, that 1. my performance improves,
2. my regeneration stages have become significantly
shorter." Mr. R. D. (35), 09.07.2003.
performance has improved (ergometer performance limit
250 W.). I reduced by 5 kg to 72 kg. I have, what's
normal for me, once per day bowel movement. Before I had
only every 3-5 days very hard bowel movements. Now I
feel very well and have normal performance."
Mr. J. M. (63),
my health condition is at its best, and I thank you sincerely for the information. When I'm not consequent
with my nutrition, I feel my body reacting straightaway
negatively. My life has much calmed down, I go more
inside myself, and daily I'm improving. Not that I was
in bad condition before, but my life was more hectic and
stressy ..." Mrs. C. G. (68),

positive. In the beginning relatively successful, too by
loss of weight from 70 to 67 kg at 173 height. Now I
rather identify stress as my biggest enemy! I will now
again be more consequent for some time because 145/95
mm/Hg are too high!" Mr. J. H. (45), 22.04.2004.

influenza or cold. Very good performance and
well-balanced." Mr. S. H. (36), 03.05.2004.
beating of the heart, less difficulty of breathing, less
dizziness. Schnitzer-Nutrition for me has resulted in
positive changes in my life." Mr. W. E. (36),
I had started with the Dr. Schnitzer diet, my weight of
113 kg has continuously decreased. Together with the
weight loss, the blood pressure has declined. At the
same time, twice per week if possible I was in the
fitness studio, one hour cardio training and muscle
building training. During the weight loss, step by step
I have reduced the medication, what as a
counter-reaction shortly made the blood pressure elevate. After that it continued to go down. The most
difficult were the 'hits below the belt', when the blood
pressure after reducing medication first elevated again,
or when the weight for partially up to 2 weeks didn't
continue to drop. In such situations, one can be led
into temptation to fall back into the same old rut. But
if having a little patience (I know that this is very
difficult!!), the weight and the blood pressure continue
to go down. After about 10 weeks, I have arrived at
93-95 kg, the medication I have ceased completely after
6 weeks. The performance in sports is essentially better
than with my weight off 113 kg, which I was carrying
around with me before. The side effects, which were
caused by the medication, as well have disappeared.
Blood pressure with medication 160/108 mm/Hg, blood
pressure without medication after 3 1/2 months 135/80
mm/Hg, and the diagnosis of the physician that there's NO
more hypertension." Mr. T. G. (37), 14.05.2004.
cease of medication, for about 3 to 4 weeks I had
something like withdrawal symptoms, as inner unrest and
trembling. After that improvement of the general health
condition up to a never known before well-being. My
performance increased significantly. I feel super! In no
case I want to return to medication and to the old wrong
feeding habits." Mrs. P. S. (46),
more big variations of blood sugar, means attacks of
bulimia, no more indigestion, no more noises in the
ears, no more inner unrest and nervosity, better quality
of sleep, no more states of exhaustion with chronic
tiredness. Too years ago I was rather shocked, when my
family doctress lapidarily informed me this hypertension
(she called it 'hyperkinetic heart syndrome') to be
conditioned by stress, and I should now take hypotonic
medication. I told her, that strictly speaking I'm much
too young to swallow hypotonic pills, if there's no
other possibility of a treatment. My boss and
co-treating doctor (nephrologist) said, I shall do
endurance sports and eat low in salt, then the symptoms
could heal. This didn't work." Ms. S. M. (37), 24.05.2004.
support, I do regularly sports! Measuring daily my blood
pressure without problem. My general well-being has
returned, Have reduced 20 kg during the first half year
and meanwhile keep this for another half year. I'm very
glad to have found Dr. Schnitzer!" Mr. R. W. (37), 31.05.2004.
reduced by about 10 kg in one month. More energy and
performance. Besides the improved health a higher sense
of self-worth because of a 'new' figure, smarter
clothing, recognition of my endurance by the colleagues,
better skin, less colds. However corresponding costs by
the 'bio'-foodstuff." Mrs. I. O. (45), 10.07.2004.
weight had decreased from 84 to 72 kg. I had and have
more power and energy. 2 nutcrackers I had broken with
one hand, and the third one I have twisted, until I had
remarket that I have so much power from the good diet.
The skin has become very sleek, small wounds heal very
fast. One evening, I had cut my finger (not very deep).
The next morning it had cured, even I couldn't see where
the wound had been, not even with a lens. One day I saw
in the mirror my hair sheening like the lametta of a
Christmas angel. Immediately I changed the bulb of the
ceiling light, because thinking something to be wrong
there. Afterwards I realized, that it's my hair which
has improved so much. Repeatedly I have to buy new
bicycle inner tubes (on some days I drive 70 km with the
bicycle). Too I wear through the soles of my shoes. My
memory has improved, unfortunately it doesn't help too
much for my (German) orthography, after 35 years in
Australia. The feeling of balance of mind and harmony is
wonderful." Mr. H. S. (64), 15.07.2004.
I feel okay with hypertension too, certainly because of
my age (36). However, often had nosebleed, as another
type of bloodletting. Because of the changed nutrition,
I reduced weight, and I'm no more puffed." Mr.
M. B. (36), 01.08.2004.
addition to the reduced blood pressure, I could sleep
through 7-8 hours, my digestion is regular and without
problems or pains, my heavy loss of hair reduced
drastically, my energy of life has returned, my
superfluous ponds have disappeared, and my complexion
again looks healthy. All around I feel better and
healthier, and too I can better manage my psychic
problems which appeared by the death of my husband"
Mrs. G. S.
I feel fitter and fitter, my blood pressure lowered,
actually it has gone down to 125/85 mm/Hg without
variations." Mrs. M. E. (60), 26.08.2004.
sensation for overstrain/stress; no depressions; loss of
weight 9 kilo. To change my nutrition in the long run,
unfortunately I didn't succeed, but with a partial
application of Dr. Schnitzer's dietetics plus daily
sports I can keep my blood pressure at good figures.
Never I would have imagined, ever again to have a normal
blood pressure without pills! Thanks!" Mrs. S. B. (32), 20.09.2004.
of now, I had no more any single attack of migraine, no
more headache, my blood pressure lowered steadily, and
above all my blood sugar level fell into its normal
swing. That my overweight too disappeared slowly but
steadily, nearly is self-evident, and also, that I no
more need laxative pills or so :-). Each day again I'm
grateful for my health, which I could reach thanks to
Dr. Schnitzer. At that time, it was a matter of course,
to be welcomed by my name in the pharmacy, and at any
appointment with the doctor straightaway to book the
next. Today, I'm welcomed by my name in the natural
health food store, and I must strain my memory, to
remember when I had to see my naturopath last. My
complete view of life has changed much to the positive,
and today hardly I can understand, how I could land -
not self-determined, and as if this would be normal - in
the mills of the pharmaceutical and sugar industries.
It's really worthwhile to activate one's common sense,
and to handle one's body consciously. I hope many, many
people can benefit from Dr. Schnitzer's great findings,
and I wish him for his further work great success!
Sincere thanks. P.S. Shortly ago I read the sentence:
'The body is the translator of the soul into the
visible.' How true ..." Mrs. E.
W. (52), 28.09.2004.

habits will not happen. But I eat essentially more raw

well-being, more well-balanced, more calm, more fit. I
have heard about, that it's possible, practically
without problems to get a normal blood pressure.
Unfortunately, because of my profession, it's not always
possible for me to keep it. For 3 years, I tried
everything, but nothing worked. When I keep completely
the recommendations of Dr. Schnitzer, a blood pressure
of 120/80 mm/Hg can be reached without problems. If it
elevates above 130/85 mm/Hg, I have to pitch in again."
Mr. A. F. (48), 26.10.2004.
addition, I reduced weight by 12 kg, and I go jogging
5-6 times per week for minimum 30 minutes. This,
together with the change of nutrition, has normalized my
blood pressure!! I'm glad, that I have taken over
responsibility for my blood pressure, and that I don't
brainlessly tuck in poisonous pills, which only make
ill. I'm convinced, that nutrition/weight and sports
free from hypertension and for this no medication is
needed!!" Mrs. K. Z. (40),

having a long-term measuring at my family doctor
(cardiologist!!!), I had super values: 132/78 (I'm 68
years old). My family doctor assumed, that I continue to
take all those many pills. He looked into his computer
data, if really for the last 5 months I hadn't taken any
pills. He just didn't believe me. Immediately after he
had told me the long-term result, I asked him, if I
should continue to take these many pills for my
hypertension; he responded: 'In any case you must take
them daily.' Then I told him, that for 5 months I don't
take any hypertension pills at all. After that, he was
more than surprised, and didn't ask at all, what I have
personally done, so that my blood pressure has changed
so positively. As a cardiologist, in any case he should
have asked this question. 'I see, so continue like that',
were his words." Mr. P. Q. (68), 16.11.2004.
have become more calm. My sleep too is more calm and
regular, that means, nearly every night I sleep 7 1/2 to
8 hours. I live very well-balanced and calm. Although in
retirement age, I work each day as a free-lancer without
a special strain for my body. My teeth are still 100 %
complete. Still I had never a tooth extraction."

more so tired, or expressed by other words: In the
morning when getting up I could dance, and in the
afternoon after work I feel up to anything. For 8 weeks
now I don't anymore drink milk. Since, I feel much
better. Cheese I still eat, but moderately. In the
morning, always I had a dry throat, this problem since
has disappeared." Mr. R. W. (38), 14.12.2004.
have become more fit and more calm. My total
cholesterol level is without medication below 200, and
meanwhile the other values too are absolutely normal. My
personal experience is absolutely positive. My health is
much better. But it's shocking to see, how most of the
doctors treat their patients and prescribe medication to
them, which is expensive and nonsensical." Mr. D.
R. (61), 16.12.2004.
the beginning I had to urinate a lot, then the digestion
improved. Better general condition. 90 % of shoulder
pains (for years treated without success) have
disappeared. I had directed my attention mainly to
animal protein, but I had to recognize, that industrial
sugar and white flour have a big negative influence."
Mrs. A. K. (65),

feet. No more so tired, and I don't need anymore siesta.
Reduced my weight, from 124 kg on January 1rst, 2005, to
109 kg on February 14, 2005, without hunger, and for the
first time in years, when eating, I become really
satisfied. As a matter of fact, it was very easy, the
change with a right nutrition, and that I don't need
anymore hypertension medication." Mr. R.
