Overview

• Proves that the majority of cases of stroke, heart attack, and hypertension can easily be prevented by maintaining the proper ratio of potassium to sodium in the diet.


• Updated with scientific evidence from a recent Finnish study showing a 60 percent decline in deaths attributed to strokes and heart attacks.


• Provides a comprehensive program for balancing body chemistry at the cellular level.


High blood pressure is entirely preventable, without reliance on synthetic drugs. Dr. Moore's approach is simple: by maintaining the proper ratio of potassium to sodium in the diet, blood pressure can be regulated at the cellular level, preventing the development of hypertension and the high incidence of strokes and heart attacks associated with it. Dr. Moore updates this edition with a new preface reporting on the latest scientific research in support of his program. The most striking results come from Finland, where for several decades sodium chloride has been replaced nationwide with a commercial sodium/potassium mixture, resulting in a 60 percent decline nationwide in deaths attributed to strokes and heart attacks. Extrapolated to America, the Finnish statistics would mean 360,000 strokes prevented and 96,000 lives saved every year.

Dr. Moore makes it clear that high blood pressure is only one symptom of an entire systemic imbalance. He outlines a safe, effective program that focuses on nutrition, weight loss, and exercise to bring the entire body chemistry into balance. For those currently taking blood pressure medications, he includes a chapter on working with your physician to ensure that any reduction in hypertension drugs can be effected gradually and safely.

This is the finest blend of science and healing I've seen in a very long time. . . . this is the medicine of the future!
Armand E. Brodeur
"A fantastic treatment presented in a simple, practical, logical order for the patient and physician as well. One of my colleagues glanced through the book as it was sitting on my desk and said 'Hey, this is a life saver!' Here is a book that needed to be written."
John J. Duncan
"Should be required reading for everyone, especially those who have a familial history of high blood pressure, or those who have already been diagnosed as having high blood pressure."

    Good information

    The information contained in this book seems to be based on fact. But you have to get through the first four chapters to get to the meat of the book. Dr. Moore takes a lot of words to say what might have been said in a shorter space. He is trying to convince the reader what he has to say is factual. For a cynic this might make one wonder is it really this easy. Well it isn't. You must continue to read. Every body is different and every body will react differently. I believe in the approach. Dr. Moore makes sense to me. I have tried it and it does work! If you want to be educated, then read this book! If you want to lower your blood pressure without meds, then read this book!
