What People are Saying About This
The High Blood Pressure Solution 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. -Director of the Hypertension Clinic, University of Minnesota Hospital
This is the finest blend of science and healing I've seen in a very long time. This book is about far more than high blood pressure. It points the way toward simplicity and naturalness in healing, for which society is desperate. Physicians, listen up: this is the medicine of the future. -Author of Space, Time, and Medicine
