Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the nearly 78 million Americans with hypertension, a safe, effective lifestyle plan—incorporating the DASH diet principles and much more—for lowering blood pressure naturally

If you have high blood pressure, you're not alone: nearly a third of adult Americans have been diagnosed with hypertension, and another quarter are well on their way. Yet a whopping 56 percent of diagnosed patients do not have it under control. The good news? Hypertension is easily treatable (and preventable), and you can take action today to bring your blood pressure down in just four weeks—without the potential dangers and side effects of prescription medications. 

     In Blood Pressure Down, Janet Bond Brill distills what she's learned over decades of helping her patients lower their blood pressure into a ten-step lifestyle plan that's manageable for anyone. You'll: 

   • harness the power of blood pressure power foods like bananas, spinach, and yogurt

   • start a simple regimen of exercise and stress reduction

   • stay on track with checklists, meal plans, and more than fifty simple recipes

Easy, effective, safe—and delicious—Blood Pressure Down is the encouraging resource that empowers you, or your loved ones, to lower your blood pressure and live a longer, heart-healthy life.

Synopsis:

For the 75 million Americans with hypertension, a safe, effective plan for lowering blood pressure without prescription drugs

Nearly a third of the adult US population has been diagnosed with hypertension, and another quarter is well on its way. High blood pressure is the most preventable cause of premature death and disability in the world, but of all the people diagnosed, a whopping 56 percent do not have it under control. With recent controversy in the news about the potential dangers of blood pressure drugs, patients are more interested than ever in lowering their blood pressure through diet and exercise.

     Dr. Janet Brill's program provides an alternative to prescription medications, based on a combination of functional foods, a simple regimen of exercise, and modest calorie restriction. The program can also be used alongside medicinal therapy, potentially allowing patients to lower their dosages and decrease potential side effects. Backed by solid research and complete with checklists, charts, and over 50 delicious heart-healthy recipes, Blood Pressure Down gives readers the tools and knowledge they need to lower their blood pressure naturally.
