You And Your Blood Pressure provides an impressive account of nearly

all that concerns high blood pressure as relevant to the health-conscious reader

and the hypertensive patient. The initial chapters deal with the basics as to

what is blood pressure, when is blood pressure labeled as high and low, and the

various grades and forms of blood pressure (both hypertension and hypotension).

This is followed by a discussion on the risk factors for developing

hypertension, mechanisms of rise in blood pressure, and the consequences of high

blood pressure on various target organs of the body. In the book the author has

discussed at length profiles of antihypertensive drugs and the myths and facts

regarding medical treatment of hypertension. He has also given a masterly

description of the various relaxation exercises and forms of meditation which

are extremely helpful in keeping the blood pressure under control. The diet

charts and heart-friendly recipes provided at the end make a useful reading.

This

edition includes live cases which should be of deep interest to the common

reader.
