A Powerful, Drug-Free Approach to High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is a national epidemic. It's a condition that affects one in four Americans, most of whom have no idea they are at higher risk for heart disease, stroke, and other life-threatening problems. Conventional treatments for hypertension involve drugs, and these can have considerable side effects and may not ultimately succeed in getting those numbers down. Fortunately, the Institute of HeartMath has researched techniques for managing stress and hypertension for more than fifteen years. Now, at last, their highly effective strategies for regulating blood pressure safely and effectively are available to you.
Using a series of unique techniques like the Freeze-Frame ® and the Heart Lock-In ®, this book will help you literally regulate your blood pressure at the source-the heart level-and reduce the stress that causes high blood pressure. In as little as ninety days, you can 'reset' your baroreceptor systems and lower your blood pressure. The approach is drug-free, safe, effective, and clinically validated.
This is a comprehensive overview of hypertension incorporates conventional medical wisdom as well uptodate thinking regarding the important role of stress. Readers will find clear explanations of hypertension: its causes, deleterious effects on the body, and an explanation of the types of drugs used to treat it. But they will also learn about our growing understanding of the important contribution of stress hormones and will learn some simple techniques to engage their hearts and brains to restore inner equilibrium and calmness. This will be useful for anyone who wants to understand hypertension and the range of options available to address it.Kenneth M. Riff, MD, executive director of the Hawaii Heart Brain Center at North Hawaii Community Hospital
As this concise but meaty book emphasizes, hypertension is a major cause of death and disability. It is aptly called 'the silent killer' because patients may have no symptoms until it produces significant damage. Although there are numerous antihypertensive drugs, there is no algorithm that guarantees which will work best in any given patient and many have serious side effects. In contrast, the HeartMath® approach is completely safe and its efficacy has been demonstrated in years of cuttingedge research on heart rate variability feedback.Paul Rosch, MD, president of the American Institute of Stress
Connecting the mind, body, and emotions, Heartmath offers a quickly learned, scientifically validated approach to decreasing stress and impacting cardiac risk factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, arrhythmia, and chest pain. Everyone needs to learn these techniques.Mimi Guarneri, MD, FACC, medical director of the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine
The holistic approach to hypertension described in this book is userfriendly for patients of different ages. It addresses the essential biobehavioral nature of the problem directly, with ideas to heal and balance body and mind.Timothy P. Culbert, MD, medical director, integrative medicine and cultural care, at Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota
Wilson and Childre present an uptodate, highly readable, and comprehensive approach to managing high blood pressure. Using a combination of evidencebased clinical recommendations (medications, exercise, and diet) together with scientifically validated HeartMath tools, the authors clearly and concisely explain the key role of the heartbrain connection ('heart intelligence') in the management of hypertension. If you have hypertension, this book is a must read. If your blood pressure is normal but your life is stressful (let's be honestwhose life is not?), I am convinced that combining HeartMath tools with a good diet and adequate exercise can help you achieve emotional balance and optimal health.Alan P.
