What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Hypertension
The Revolutionary Nutrition Lifestyle Program to Help Fight High Blood Pressure
By Mark C. Houston, M.D., Barry Fox Barry, Nadine Taylor  

Hypertension is the third leading cause of death in this country. Over 50 million Americans suffer from hypertension. It is known as the "silent killer" because millions of people are unaware they have this serious life threatening disease.

In What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Hypertension Dr. Mark Houston takes a fresh new approach that reveals ways to help fight this deadly disease. He discusses how the use of vitamins, minerals and other food-related substance can help reverse hypertension naturally. In addition, his book is filled with diet and exercise plans that can be adapted to fit into anyone's daily lifestyle.

     Heart disease has always been an issue in my family history. I have done extensive research to help find a way to help maintain a normal blood pressure. I feel Dr. Houston's book is one of the best I have ever read on the subject. His advice, if used properly and faithfully, can lead to dramatic health improvements. It is written for the novice to the expert; its voice is informative, but very easy to understand. Everyone who reads it will be able to use his advice and suggestions to help chart a path to apply it to their own situation.
