"A fantastic treatment presented in a simple, practical, logical order for the patient and physician as well. Here is a book that needed to be written." (Armand E. Brodeur, M.D., M.R.D., Professor, St. Louis University School of Medicine)

"Should be required reading for everyone, especially those who have a familial history of high blood pressure, or those who have already been diagnosed as having high blood pressure." (John J. Duncan, M.D., Institute for Aerobics Research, Dallas, Texas)

"A fantastic treatment presented in a simple, practical, logical order for the patient and physician as well. One of my colleagues glanced through the book as it was sitting on my desk and said 'Hey, this is a life saver!' Here is a book that needed to be written." (Armand E. Brodeur, M.D., M.R.D., Professor, St. Louis University School of Medicine)

"This is the finest blend of science and healing I've seen in a very long time. . . . this is the medicine of the future!" (Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Reinventing Medicine)

From the Back Cover

HEALTH The High Blood Pressure Solution presents a natural approach to controlling hypertension and dispels many of the myths surrounding the treatment of this silent killer. In clear, simple language, backed by sound scientific research, Dr. Moore explains how: - Hypertension is completely preventable without reliance on synthetic drugs - Artificially lowering blood pressure to "normal" levels with drugs fails to prevent many strokes and heart attacks - The vast majority of strokes could be eliminated by balancing dietary potassium and sodium - Based on the principles in this book, the entire country of Finland has reduced strokes and heart attacks 60% nationwide 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 of The High Blood Pressure Solution with a new preface reporting on the latest scientific research in support of his program. The most striking results come from Finland, where table salt has been replaced nationwide with a commercial sodium/potassium/magnesium mixture. Between 1972 and 1992, Finland saw a 60 percent decline nationwide in deaths attributed to strokes and heart attacks.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. He also includes a chapter on working with your physician to ensure that reduction of any hypertension drugs you might be taking can be effected safely. RICHARD MOORE holds an M.D. from the Indiana University School of Medicine and a Ph.D. in biophysics from Purdue University. He has been a professor of biophysics at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh and a visiting professor at the University of Vermont's medical school. He has been active in the field of biomedical research for over thirty years.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

By A Customer on Nov. 28 2003
Format: Paperback
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.
