The High Blood Pressure Solution: A Scientifically Proven Program for Preventing Strokes and Heart Disease Paperback – 1 May 2001
Enhance your purchase
• 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.

What you should know:
Lowering salt/sodium intake alone is of no use at all unless you can actually decrease the ratio of sodium to potassium that you eat.
High blood pressure is just one of the more visible symptoms caused by not getting enough potassium compared to sodium. If you eat too much salt then you can still be at high risk of heart disease and stroke even without having high blood pressure.
Blood pressure medicine can lower your blood pressure without significantly lowering your risk of heart disease and stroke (and in some cases increase the rates of mortality).
If you change your diet to get more potassium and less sodium, you can lower your blood pressure but more importantly avoid other problems such as insulin resistance/diabetes etc.
The published recommended daily amounts for salt are much too high and you should aim for much less.
I don't have high blood pressure and I read this book because I have family that do. I have now made changes to my diet and am recommeding the same to other healthy friends. Much better to do it before you have a problem as some of the effects of salt are irreversible if unchecked for too long (like hardening of arteries).
It is written by a Professor in Biophysics who took time out to qualify as an MD(Medical Doctor in the USA) so he could better understand his subject. It is written for us, the public, and also for Doctors, particularly GPs. Every fact stated and every piece of research that has been used is cross-referenced at the back of the book and accounts for nearly 10% of the contents. As the prof. says, nothing new is published in this book, but he has brought it all together from various sources such as medical trials and long-buried research papers etc.
To put it bluntly High Blood Pressure is not, for 95% of the population, an illness or disease. It is a symptom that something is not right with a your body. Conventional medicine treats symptoms with man-made drugs that earn the drug companies $billions and leave behind a swathe of patients that suffer strokes, heart attacks, permanent disabilities and death because the doctors have mostly been brain-washed into believing that manufactured drugs are the answer. The fact that artificial drugs can reduce your bp readings does not indicate their safety or efficacy in preventing hypertension, strokes or heart disease.
Finland reduced the incidence of death by both strokes and heart attacks by 60% as well as a significant decrease in high blood pressure across the WHOLE COUNTRY.
No, I hadn't heard about it and I bet neither you or your doctor has either.
What did they do in Finland? They replaced table salt, sodium chloride (NaCl) with a commercial mixture, called Pansalt, which contains 57% sodium chloride, 28% potassium chloride, 12% magnesium and 2% lysine.
This is not suitable for 5% or so of the population which is why you are strongly advised to consult your GP with this book before following his K Factor diet. "K" standing for potassium (potatos and bananas are full of the stuff) and "diet" is not a terribly appropriate word since all you have to do is reduce salt and increase potassium uptake. The book contains a list of foodstuffs giving their sodium and potassium content.
Pansalt is not currently available in the UK although there is a Scottish made product called LoSalt that has potassium and sodium chloride only in it.
Read the book, go to his website address at the end of the book and make sure you are not on any of the "high blood pressure" medication that increases the risk of incidence of death by 20-25% like my wife was.
I would give this book 5 stars but the food-specific tables refer to American foods, but don't let this put you off. An inexpensive blood-pressure monitor (Omron MX2 Basic, available from Amazon, is a good choice) and this book can help see your blood pressure fall to a safe, healthy level and keep it there - providing you follow the instructions!
Every doctor in the country should promote this and save the NHS millions. More importantly, millions of lives could be lengthened and improved without the many unpleasant side-effects of antihypertensive drugs and other medication.
