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.
