Hypertension is called the silent disease because it often gives no warning signs or symptoms. Its impact can be devastating: Both coronary heart disease and strokes are closely related to hypertension. But there is hope. In this fully updated and revised edition of his classic work, Dr. Robert Rowan draws on the latest medical findings to help you prevent high blood pressure, cope with it if it occurs, and lower your blood pressure through sensible, inexpensive natural means. He explains how to work with your doctor in developing a programme that suits your personality, age, physiology, weight and personal habits. Here, you'll learn all you need to know about: - New tests that indicate the presence of high blood pressure in the absence of symptoms - Alternative techniques, from acupuncture to biofeedback to aromatherpy, that can relieve stress and lower blood pressure - Natural hypotensive therapies, exercises and foods including the amazing cholesterol-fighting omega-3 oils - Prescription and over the counter drugs that can affect blood pressure - The lowdown on diet, including a month of healthful menus and dozens of quick-and-easy recipes
