Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Offering a practical and engaging guide for anyone fighting high blood pressure, Whitaker (Reversing Diabetes, etc.), founder of the Whitaker Wellness Institute in Newport Beach, Calif., clearly explains what causes hypertension, how it's diagnosed and how to treat it. He focuses not just on the obvious causes, including poor diet and stress, but on lesser known factors such as thyroid problems and insulin resistance. Whitaker devotes the second half of the book to his program, which includes a regimen of diet and exercise along with consumption of vitamins and supplements, including garlic and Vitamin E. For those with dangerously high blood pressure, he advocates a two-week diet of vegetables, fruit and rice--a radical approach recommended only for severely ill patients. Most people with hypertension are able to eat a well-rounded, varied diet that is low in salt and includes very little dairy. Whitaker provides a list of fruits and vegetables permitted on his diet as well as a brief appendix of selected recipes. This is an informative and useful book for anyone who wants to control blood pressure primarily through diet and supplements rather than prescription medicine. (Feb.)

From Library Journal

According to The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, hypertension, or high blood pressure, affects one in four American adults--about 50 million people. Of those with hypertension, about 68 percent are aware of their condition, but only 27 percent have it under control. Yet uncontrolled high blood pressure often leads to stroke, heart failure, or kidney damage. For those with hypertension, this book might be just what the doctor ordered. Whitaker, an affable family doctor who practices in Newport Beach, CA, presents a thorough, no-nonsense overview of what causes hypertension and realistic ways to control it using conventional and complementary medicine. In addition to explaining why hypertension should be taken seriously, Whitaker tells readers how to monitor their blood pressure, provides recipes for a two-week wellness diet, and includes information on antihypertensive drugs, a glossary, and other resources. Recommended for consumer health collections in public and hospital libraries.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ FOR THOSE WITH HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE! March 17, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for my husband and myself, who both have high blood pressure. Dr. Whitaker's simple, straight-forward explanation of this killer makes people sit up and take high blood pressure very seriously! I would recommend that anyone with this disease consider taking the supplements and vitamins he suggests in this book. You will be amazed how they make you feel. AND...did you know that eating just 4 stalks of celery a day can significantly reduce your blood pressure?!? He provides so many more helpful suggestions in this must-read book!
