About the Author
This book is the most researched, comprehensive, factual, and effective book in print on lowering blood pressure. Here you will find endless scientific, international, published clinical proof of everything you read. The vast majority of books on hypertension are simply full of misinformation. You don’t lower blood pressure by covering up the symptoms with toxic, expensive drugs that have serious side effects. These poisons shorten your life, and hurt the quality of your life.
Using natural medicine, you treat the very cause of your problems with diet and lifestyle. Diet and lifestyle cure disease. Diet and lifestyle lower your blood pressure. Diet and lifestyle are the only real cure. Diet, proven supplements, natural hormones, exercise, weekly fasting, refusing all prescription drugs and medical treatments, and ending any bad habits (like drinking coffee) is the only path to wellness.
Americans have the highest blood pressure levels of anyone. This is not merely due to stress. The key to understanding high blood pressure, more than anything else, is insulin resistance. Here our insulin loses effectiveness. The main cause of this is our extreme consumption of various sugars. Americans, on the average, hog down over 160 pounds of various sugars every year. Other major factors include obesity, lack of exercise, excessive fat and protein intake, and alcohol use. We are overfed and undernourished.
Essential hypertension is the most prevalent medical condition on the face of the earth. Over 65 million—one-third—of American adults have high blood pressure, defined as 140/90. Over 40 million more are “pre-hypertensive”—defined as pressures over 120/80. Anti-hypertensive drugs are the third most common prescriptions written. These toxic dangerous drugs simply make you worse. One-third of all American adults suffer from high blood pressure, and many of them go undiagnosed. Cardiovascular heart disease (CHD) is the biggest killer of all world-wide. This epidemic is completely unnecessary.
This book is based on the last twenty years of international published clinical research. Everything you need to know is in this factual, easy-to-read book. Be your own doctor, and take responsibility for your health.
