What the Readers Say
Bob Niehoff

Dr Janet,

Thank you so very much for your book, Blood Pressure Down. It has changed my life and I was able to lower my BP from a startling 160/99 to 130/80 in just 5 weeks and headed toward my goal of 120/70.

Your book is the best book I have read on nutrition and you explain why we should eat Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium, which makes so much sense after reading your book.

Thank you again--you have spared me from the devastating effects of a heart attack or stroke. I will be forever grateful.

Your plan is THE way to go for lowering BP and leading a healthy life.

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.

Today's Nutrition Tip
The real "juice" on juicing
That said, juice does have many redeeming qualities (some are loaded with vitamins, minerals and disease-fighting antioxidants) as long as they are consumed in small amounts as an addition to a healthy whole foods diet. Concord grape juice, pomegranate juice and orange juice (with added calcium and vitamin D) are a few of the highly nutritious juices out there that top my list. Just remember, though, juices concentrate the calories; one 8-ounce glass of OJ contains 110 calories and 0 grams of fiber-that's the calorie count of two small oranges, which provide a total of 6 grams of dietary fiber! So don't make those juice glasses a bottomless pit or you'll pay at the scale. The take-away message: NOTHING beats the nutritional benefits of eating a plant-based diet filled with whole fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean protein and healthy fats. Add daily exercise to the mix and you have the secret for good health and longevity, a benefit that no liquid diet could possibly provide.
