The Dash Diet for Hypertension

by

The Dash Diet for Hypertension Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More than 50 million Americans suffer from high blood pressure, and most of them control it by taking prescription drugs with potentially dangerous side effects. But there is a natural, affordable, and easy-to-manage alternative to medication: the DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet. Developed by a world-class team of doctors and nutritionists, the DASH diet is clinically proven to lower blood-pressure levels and thereby reduce the risk of heart failure, stroke, and kidney disease. Now, with The DASH Diet for Hypertension, readers can benefit from:

• A hearty and healthful selection of DASH menus, recipes, even grocery lists

• DASH weight-loss and exercise programs for everyday living

• The science behind DASH, including calorie worksheets and a formula to calculate body-mass

...and much more from this revolutionary program, which is recommended by the American Heart Association; the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute; the American Society for Hypertension; and other leading medical authorities.

Synopsis:

Developed by a team of top doctors nutritionists at Harvard, Duke, and Johns Hopkins medical schools, and endorsed by the American Heart Association, the DASH diet provides an effective treatment without medication for hypertension — one of the most common and deadly diseases in the western world.

Synopsis:

Includes menus, recipes, and exercise programs.

Synopsis:

Not a gimmick or a fad, the DASH diet — Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension — is scientifically proven to significantly reduce high blood pressure after only two weeks. This innovative plan provides an effective treatment without medication for hypertension, one of the most common and deadly diseases in the western world.
