Recent surveys suggest that 50 million Americans (20 percent of the adult population) have hypertension (or high blood pressure). It is the second most common reason for visiting a doctor, and without therapy a person's risk of developing heart disease and stroke increases dramatically.
The Hypertension Sourcebook provides the tools to achieve perfect control of your blood pressure; the program outlined in this invaluable book will introduce lifestyle changes--diet, exercise, supplements--that could dramatically alter your life or the life of someone you love. Dr. Mary McGowan describes the causes of hypertension--from stress to being overweight to genetics--and offers simple steps toward curing this highly destructive disease or avoiding it altogether. Also included is a comprehensive evaluation of the latest blood pressure medications and home monitors, a foolproof plan for giving up smoking, and a section on hypertension in special populations including pregnant women and children. If hypertension and its symptoms are holding you back from fully embracing your life, let this book be your guide to a fuller, richer, and healthier future.About the Author:
