9780091917302: 8 Weeks to Lower Blood Pressure: Take the Pressure Off Your Heart Without the Use of Prescription Drugs

High blood pressure is one of the biggest killers in the UK today: it is a major factor in causing heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease and renal failure. About 3 in every 10 adults in England have high blood pressure. Among people in their 60s, about 6 out of 10 have high blood pressure, and among people in their 70s, 7 out of 10 people have it. In 8 Weeks to Lower Blood Pressure internationally-respected author Robert Kowalski provides vital information on recognising the risks of high blood pressure and lays out lifestyle advice, heart-friendly exercise programmes and tempting recipes that will help you to reduce your blood pressure in just eight weeks. Some tips include: - Put a heaped teaspoon of potassium into every saucepan of boiling water you use when you are cooking vegetables or pasta or rice - Grape seed extract in just one small capsule a day, is sufficient to lower blood pressure by 7 or 8 points. It is just as effective as prescription drugs, without the side effects, is inexpensive and easy to do - Even cocoa powder can lower blood pressure by 4-6 points With special considerations for men, women, children and diabetics, as well as the truth on salt and sodium intake, this book could add years to your life and help you to decrease your prescription drug dosage - or even go without them all together.

About the Author:

Robert Kowalski is an internationally-acclaimed medical journalist. At the age of 35, Robert had already had a heart attack and bypass surgery and then a further bypass surgery six years later. Because of this he decided to find out everything he could about heart disease. The diet and some of the natural remedies he found out about led him to write his book The 8-Week Cholesterol Cure in 1987.
