Once again the brilliant Dr Brill has made the ubiquitous problem of high blood pressure an understandable disease for everyone. She has a knack for making cardiac disease simple to understand and conquer. She respects the medical field for its ability to treat the disease with prescription medications but emphasizes the absolute need for lifestyle changes in addition.
As a very busy cardiologist I am not able to give my patients comprehensive advice to lower their blood pressure through lifestyle change. This book is the ideal tool to supplement a doctor's visit to effectively lower a patient's blood pressure with or without medications.
This book is so comprehensive – it gives guidance on how to monitor one's blood pressure at home, reminds people about stroke symptoms, what type of exercise works best and of course the foods that can lower blood pressure.
The recipes at the end of the book emphasize how delicious a heart healthy diet can be, no deprivation of delicious foods here.
Patients often ask me how they can lower their cholesterol and blood pressure on their own. For years I have recommended Dr. Brill's first book “Cholesterol Down” and now I am happy to recommend this new “Blood Pressure Down” book not just to my patients but for everyone.
