Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) September 13, 2013

‘Blood Pressure Down’, the authoritative guide to lowering blood pressure in 4 weeks without prescriptions drugs won the Gold Award in Health/Wellness category.

High blood pressure can be lowered and prevented quickly and safely—without the side effects of many blood pressure medications in ten simple and delicious steps through a unique plan that harnesses the power of the lifestyle changes, reveals this latest book by renowned dietitian Janet Brill PhD, RD, LDN, CSSD.

BLOOD PRESSURE DOWN: The 10-Step Plan to Lower Your Blood Pressure in 4 Weeks–Without Prescription Drugs (Three Rivers Press; May 7th, 2013) by Dr Janet, unveils ten, simple delicious steps to harness the power of the lifestyle changes, including elements of the DASH diet, proven to be the most effective medicine for hypertension: blood pressure power foods like bananas, yogurt, soy, and dark chocolate, as well as exercise and stress reduction.

Backed by solid research, Brill cuts through the medical jargon to explain how and why each step in her program works. The Blood Pressure Down plan is both thorough and accessible, including many convenient checklists, charts, meal plans, and over fifty delicious heart-healthy recipes that make incorporating each step into a heart-healthy lifestyle easy, practical, and never overwhelming.

Cardiovascular disease is America’s leading cause of death. Every thirty nine seconds, we lose another American to a fatal heart attack or stroke, and yet, despite the fact that the largest risk factor for cardiovascular death—high blood pressure—is both reversible and preventable, seventy-six million adult Americans continue to suffer from this life-threatening condition, and another two million will be diagnosed over the next year.
