Book Description

May 1 2001
• Proves that the majority of cases of stroke, heart attack, and hypertension can easily be prevented by maintaining the proper ratio of potassium to sodium in the diet.

• Updated with scientific evidence from a recent Finnish study showing a 60 percent decline in deaths attributed to strokes and heart attacks.

• Provides a comprehensive program for balancing body chemistry at the cellular level.

High blood pressure is entirely preventable, without reliance on synthetic drugs. Dr. Moore's approach is simple: by maintaining the proper ratio of potassium to sodium in the diet, blood pressure can be regulated at the cellular level, preventing the development of hypertension and the high incidence of strokes and heart attacks associated with it. Dr. Moore updates this edition with a new preface reporting on the latest scientific research in support of his program. The most striking results come from Finland, where for several decades sodium chloride has been replaced nationwide with a commercial sodium/potassium mixture, resulting in a 60 percent decline nationwide in deaths attributed to strokes and heart attacks. Extrapolated to America, the Finnish statistics would mean 360,000 strokes prevented and 96,000 lives saved every year.

Dr. Moore makes it clear that high blood pressure is only one symptom of an entire systemic imbalance. He outlines a safe, effective program that focuses on nutrition, weight loss, and exercise to bring the entire body chemistry into balance. For those currently taking blood pressure medications, he includes a chapter on working with your physician to ensure that any reduction in hypertension drugs can be effected gradually and safely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped me immediately July 29 2003
I had been in Stage 3 Hypertension for at least 6 months and was given a Beta Blocker to lower my Blood Pressure. When I read this book, I stopped taking the Beta Blocker and followed the nutritional quidelines in this book, plus starting taking a Potassium tablet in the morning and the evening. I immediately started feeling better and was able to sleep at night, which was in itself a great relief. This treatment does not cost anything and really works quickly and well. I strongly endorse it! I think it is the right way to treat this disease.

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic Sensible Advice Nov. 28 2003
By A Customer
This whole book can be summarized as: "Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables; Stay away from processed foods; exercise and lose weight" But isn't this what your mom and grandmother has been telling you? Isn't this what folk wisdom from many cultures have been saying?
The book backs up the above admonishment with lots of scientific background. The book references many articles in medical journals. I am not qualified to judge the quality of all this information. But alot of the data in the book seems consistent and makes sense. I do have one question about all the information. The book highlights two key factors contributing to high blood pressure, low potassium/sodium ratio in body fluids,
and insulin resistance. The books says there is some a relationship between the two because the potassium/sodium pump has an effect on glucose transport through cell membranes. Does a high K-factor diet lower insulin resistance? The book alludes to this but doesn't come right out and say it.
No matter what, even if you have doubts about the science....the advice in this book seem like very healthy advice. Basically dieticians have been giving the same advice for decades. So you can't lose by following it.
I am borderline high blood pressure (130-140/80-90). Since following this advice for about two months, my blood pressure has dropped to about (110-125/70-80). But by far for me,
exercise has the largest effect. After a good 6 mile run, blood pressure will stay at 110/70 for hours! and below 120/80 for the rest of the day.
If you start eating a high K-factor diet and exercising, be patient. It takes a few weeks for the effects to kick in.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good science, poor program... Oct. 5 2003
For the science portion of this book, I would give it a solid 4 stars. The author spends a good amount of time showing how several minerals work with your body's cells to keep your body functioning well. He has various studies to back his claims, and has a reasonable basis for his elemental potassium to sodium ratio. A few flaws in his studies...he mentions primitive people diets in terms of hunter/gatherer, but uses farming communities as proof. He also chooses to ignore that the majority of hunter/gather societies relied far more on proteins and fats than carbohydrates (mentions Eskimos as proof, but fails to acknowledge that they didn't get any carbs in their diet; also seems unaware of Pemmican which was a staple diet of the healthy, long-lived Plains Indians - 50/50 fat/meat). Fortunately, it doesn't deter from the end solution.
However, the action plan would only garner 2 stars. While he is anti-establishment in terms of treating blood pressure, he falls right in line with the establishment in terms of dietary recommendations (either vegetarian or near vegetarian and an extreme phobia of fats) despite the fact that many other scientists have proven that fat is perfectly fine for you (check out Dr. Ellis's Ultimate Diet Secrets for a good summary of the various studies that prove low-carb diets are perfectly healthy)...even going so far to recommend an extreme reduction in fat so you won't gain weight (extremely funny to me since I've lost 20 pounds in the last 2 months on a low carb / high fat diet). The most important thing that could be included in his book are tables showing the potassium levels in foods, but it is rather sparse.
