    Very good and informative book on how to lower blood pressure using non-pharmacological methods (lifestyle modification and diet). Dr. Brill presents her 10 step plan to lower blood pressure and she backs up the recommendations with scientific evidence. Her recommendations are easy to follow and makes sense. In short, here are the recommendations: Potassium foods: Eat foods totaling at least 4,700 mg of potassium every day. Magnesium foods: Eat foods totaling at least 500 mg of magnesium every day.

    This should be a hand-out in every doctor’s office when someone is diagnosed with high blood pressure. Blood Pressure Down is divided into 2 parts. The first section is entitled “Everything you Need to Know about High Blood Pressure and Your Health” – and that is exactly what it delivers. It fully explains the condition and how it can cause other serious problems. Part 2 is a ten-step plan to lower your blood pressure. This includes diet, exercise, supplements and weight loss.

There are 8 appendices that follow with progress charts, checklists, meal plans, recipes and more. Having been through four home blood pressure monitors that just were not accurate enough to depend on, I was very pleased with the information included in this book about an organization (and their website) that tests and rates all of the different BP monitors. I chose an inexpensive recommended model and I finally had very accurate readings for a home model. I’m not likely to follow the strict diet with fish, soy and tofu and beans of all types, but there is enough included that I can make important changes to my diet and make a difference. I am adding the supplements, using other tips and fully expect good results.

    Very much a common sense book, but with some surprises. Didn't know that Greek yogurt has less potassium than regular yogurt. Didn't believe it, so checked it out yesterday at Trader Joe, sure enough, she was right. Another thing, besides eating more potassium and less sodium, is to eat a bit of very dark chocolate every day. Also, a small glass of red wine helps the blood pressure along. But just a little bit of chocolate and a little bit of red wine, otherwise it has the opposite effect. The 1 Very much a common sense book, but with some surprises.

    Actual review: 2.5 stars. Pros: accessible, easy to read, easy to implement tips and suggestions. Cons: overly simplistic, fails to address hypertension in patients who aren’t the typical hypertensive patient.

    If you've been prescribed any type of blood pressure medication, as I have, you'll quickly discover all kinds of side effects --- real or imagined. The real ones are listed in the material you've probably tossed away -- the big sheet stapled to the prescription package.

The real ones are listed in the material you've probably tossed away -- the big sheet stapled to the prescription package. Doctors treating hypertension -- the technical name for "high blood pressure" -- often prescribe medication, which -- along with diet and lifestyle changes-- has as its goal treating a condition that affects 75 million Americans and is often called the "Silent Killer." In "Blood Pressure Down: The 10-Step Plan to Lower Your Blood Pressure in 4 Weeks Without Prescription Drugs" Janet Bond Brill distills what she's learned over decades of helping her patients lower their blood pressure into a ten-step lifestyle plan that's manageable for anyone. If I can follow it -- and I'm trying my darndest, anybody can. By following Brill's program, you'll: • Harness the power of blood pressure power foods like bananas, spinach, and yogurt • Start a simple regimen of exercise and stress reduction • Stay on track with checklists, meal plans, and more than fifty simple recipes I'm currently taking blood pressure medication, but I hope after my next doctor visit in a couple of weeks to have my doc take me off it and allow me to continue my diet/lifestyle plan. I never thought I had high blood pressure, regularly getting readings in the 120/70 range, but lower is better.

African-Americans are particularly vulnerable to hypertension, with a whopping four times as many people afflicted with high blood pressure than caucasians. Much of this difference is diet and lifestyle related, with African-Americans much more susceptible to obesity and diabetes than other racial groups. But don't pat yourself on the back too much if you're not black: Every racial and ethnic group is at risk to some degree. On top of this a whopping 56 percent of diagnosed patients do not have it under control. The good news? Hypertension is easily treatable (and preventable), and you can take action today to bring your blood pressure down in just four weeks—without the potential dangers and side effects of prescription medications. Caution: Don't discontinue any prescribed blood pressure medication until you discuss it with your doc.

Blood Pressure Down is the ultimate tool chest that provides a wealth of ideas and information on how to lower blood pressure and take less prescription drugs. This is not a quick fix, or band-aid, or an ultimate cure-all. It gives a straight forward way to understand what is potentially damaging and how to tweak bad habits without going to the extreme. There are sensible nuggets of wisdom that can be incorporated into daily life without ridiculous crash diets. "...bananas are Mother Nature's sweet blood-pressure-lowering medicine because of their potassium content..." "Coffee is... linked with reduced risk of developing a number of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's. Coffee is loaded with magnesium..." Of course, everything should be in moderation. But for those individuals needing a little more guidance, the author has produced sample weekly optimal BP-lowering strategies that combine food and exercise, all the way down to guided meal and snack suggestions, calorie counts and mineral consumption. Brill's clever approach and deft knowledge has taken on both the psychological and physiological factors of a healthier lifestyle to deliver the most comprehensive, sustainable and empowering program.

Prevention is always better than cure! There is a common notion that genes and age are responsible for high blood pressure which is false. The book provides scientific evidence to prove what you eat affects your blood pressure levels and your overall health. The best thing about the book is that Dr. Janet explains everything in such a simple and straight-forward manner that makes it so easy to understand and follow. A lot of research has gone into this book. She suggests various foods and recipes that help lower blood pressure naturally. Her recipes are easy to prepare and full of nutritional value. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone whether or not he/she has blood pressure. Blood Pressure Down book reveals easy steps to keep your blood pressure in control and live a healthy life.

I tried some. Not much sweat in making these dishes, but they taste great and do a world of good to your health. Reading her 5th chapter – ‘Cut the Salt’ was an eye opener. I never realized I was consuming so much salt from the regular pizzas or soups I have while dining out. I was shocked to know that even breads, rolls and flavoring sauces contain too much of salt that raise blood pressure. To be on the safer side, I have begun to use more of herbs than salt in my food. The book has helped me get a good understanding on what foods are harmful. Its silly how we keep ignoring foods that are actually good for our bodies and spend money on eating stuff that harms more than heals. I am going to gift this book to my sisters and friends too.

    I rather expected this book to be touting some magic bullet supplement or special quack medical device, but it is in fact a detailed treatise on the known causes contributing to unhealthy blood pressure levels and the diet and exercise approach validated through scientific research during the latter half of the 20th Century.

It is quite easy reading, not obscured by difficult medical terminology or endless details of biochemistry or pharmacology. In the end, the author has put high blood pressure into terms that can be understood by any non-medical person capable of reading say, the New York Times. The author claims that you can lower your high blood pressure significantly (as much as 10 to 15 mm of Hg) by following the carefully researched DASH diet and exercising sensibly and regularly. She not only explains why this is true, but provides sample menus and recipes and exercise advice. Certainly recommended reading for those who have or are likely to acquire a high blood pressure reading. In the US, that is nearly everyone because of our poor eating and activity habits.

Most of these steps involve changing your diet to do away with items that are harmful to you and your blood pressure, replacing them with items that are better for lowering your blood pressure.

    Good book. It inspires confidence in being able to control blood pressure with diet and life style. Most of the points in the book I already know, but it is good to see them all in one place. And the book is a gentle reminder that there is no room in our diets for unhealthy food, especially as we age. I found myself jotting downs nutritional statistics of certain foods and bookmarking websites and apps. The book is useful no matter your level of knowledge of nutrition and health.

    SF Library - 5 stars This was a really good source of information. I suffer from high BP, and this made me realise that I have a VERY high sodium diet and low potassium diet (typically the ratio should be 3 times as much potassium than sodium).

Also, what I thought was exercise, via my long hilly walks, wasn't really getting my heart rate up to the cardio levels to help lower BP. As someone who loathes to take medication unless I really need to (the side effects of some drugs just scare me), this was a diet and exercise approach to lowering blood pressure. I need to eat out less, as it's harder to know how much salt is added to the foods. I tried for the first time to ask for no salt on my food, and the kitchen was accommodating. Don't know why I have such anxiety asking for such a small request, especially when there are so many other dietary requirement requests made on a daily basis (eg no dairy/nuts/gluten/insert allergen). Key take-aways, for me: *decrease sodium intake, <1,500mg/day *increase potassium intake, at least 4,700mg/day *get 500mg/day of magnesium in diet *get 1,200mg/day of calcium in diet *eat dark chocolate, daily! (note: chocolate processed with alkali strips the cocoa of its nutrients) *exercise at least 30 min/day BUT get heart rate UP (not just fat burn range) *Meditate/Relax for 10 min/day I'm not sure if I can incorporate the soy and dairy requirements, but they are recommended in this 10 step plan. Good luck to everyone out there who is struggling with high BP or who just want to live a healthier life.

    This is an excellent book if you’ve been diagnosed with hypertension (high blood pressure) and want to use lifestyle to control it. I felt it was very easy to understand (full disclosure: I’m a RN) but she also cites TONS of studies to illustrate what she’s talking about. There are appendixes full of cheat sheets and check lists with very actionable steps. She even includes 50 recipes and a sample daily and weekly meal plans.

My only criticisms would be she doesn’t offer a lot of alternatives to accommodate taste preferences (for instance, I hate V8 but have been sucking it up on that one since it’s a cornerstone of her plan, but she also strongly recommends coffee and I refuse to do that because it’s super gross.) She also suggests using Splenda frequently which, is terrible for you, but it’s easy enough to swap it out for stevia. Her plans also aren’t great for people who depend on meal prep to get through their weeks, but I do think it’s an excellent starting point, and 3 days into starting this plan I’m already seeing improvement. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    Each year I get a physical and am told that some day I will need blood pressure medication. Well, that day came sooner than expected. This book provides the foundational information needed to modify diet and exercise to reduce blood pressure naturally.

Blood Pressure Down is another book about losing five pounds, eating more valuable foods like bananas and spinach, and exercising, although this time the book is about lowering your blood pressure. High blood pressure is not one of my physical problems, although I am eating less, eating mineral-rich foods and exercising more for other ailments that happen at my age. I still found the book valuable. I didn't know as much as I should about magnesium, potassium, and calcium. Brill, who has a PhD in nutrition, has a personal stake in getting people's blood pressure down; several members of her family have died from ailments related to high blood pressure. This is a very clearly written guide to lowering blood pressure. It talks a lot about vitamins and minerals that aid in lowering blood pressure--magnesium, potassium and calcium in particular. It encourages the reader to cut the salt out of his/her diet and take Vitamin D3, CoQ10, Omega 3 fish oil, and low-sodium vegetable juice. It suggests a blood pressure reducing diet, and an exercise plan. Included are several good recipes and meal plans. The best advice, I think, is to drink one glass of red wine every day and eat one to two squares of dark chocolate. This I can do! Everything in Blood Pressure Down is very clearly stated, logical, and relatively easy to follow. Her message is this: “High blood pressure is the most preventable cause of premature morbidity and mortality in the United States and the world, and that lifestyle therapy is the cornerstone of treatment of the disease.” Her simple message is this: 1. Lose five pounds 2. Cut the salt out of your diet 3. Eat bananas 4. Eat spinach 5. Eat yogurt This book came to me from the publicist. I can recommend it to readers who are struggling with blood pressure.
