k, which seeks to fill those gaps. From cancer to multiple sclerosis, the book offers information on integrating pharmaceutical treatment options, nutritional support and lifestyle changes for optimal health.  

High Blood Pressure

A major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure and kidney disease, high blood pressure threatens the life of every third American adult.

Intensive lifestyle changes can ease blood pressure management. When this isn't enough, pharmaceutical options can help. For example, blood pressure is best controlled with lower doses of multiple antihypertensive medications rather than a single large dose of medication. Furthermore, side effects can be greatly reduced.

"Many patients are lulled into a false sense of security by normal blood pressure readings at their periodic doctor's visits. But quite frequently, patients experience gaps in control, putting them at risk for stroke and heart attack," says Joyal who recommends considering the following:

  • With an inexpensive at-home blood pressure monitor, take readings at multiple times throughout the day, tracking values over time. Your doctor can determine whether to modify your treatment regimen based upon the results.
  • Stay fit and exercise. A healthy body weight and high degree of cardiorespiratory fitness reduce hypertension risk, and if you already have high blood pressure, can help you achieve better control.
  • Hold the salt. High sodium intake can make high blood pressure worse. Read labels. Even if you aren't reaching for salt, many pre-packaged convenience foods, meats and cheeses contain significant amounts of sodium.
