One in three American adults has high blood pressure, and getting it under control is crucial for preventing strokes, kidney disease and heart attacks. Because hypertension (high blood pressure) has no symptoms, it is often called the silent killer. Hypertension is usually treated with medications, but finding the right drug or combination of drugs can involve trial and error.
Every medication has side effects, but they don't affect everyone equally. The 8-page guide offers information on the pros and cons of each type of medicine along with details on non-drug approaches to lowering blood pressure with diet, supplements and special foods such as chocolate, pomegranates and beets. The guide is downloadable only.
