5.0 out of 5 stars I'm already eating lots of rice and soy... 1 Dec 2004
By Dianne Foster - Published on
Ever wonder what Asparagus, Avacados and Anger have to do with hypertension? Although some folks suggest you should not eat Avocados if you are on a low fat diet, perhaps you will reconsider after you read Steven and Jan Sinatra's book. And although asparagus are available seasonally, so you may want to eat as many of the fresh ones as you can and avoid the canned variety unless you wash the salt off. Frozen asparagus are okay but they lack the crunch of course. The Sinatras say your best bet is to freeze your own.

Anger is the killer. Try yoga, deep breathing exercises, aromatherapy, and pets to release anger. Bodywork including massage will lower your blood pressure if you get angry. Working out with weights or walking can be wonderful stress relievers.

Quercetin in tea and/or red wine may be better for you than taking medications with COX-2 inhibitors. The Sinatras include meal plans and recipes. I'm already eating lots of soy and rice, but the Sinatras offer many other good ideas. My philosopy is `Take what you need and leave the rest" and there is plenty I can take from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This program will work! 18 Feb 2003
By Bill Gottlieb - Published on
Dr. Sinatra has used all the latest and smartest scientific info to devise a unique and effective program for anyone who wants to lower high blood pressure. I have read two of Dr. Sinatra's other books--on coenzyme Q10, and on the role of emotions in heart disease--and found them unfailingly informative, sensible, practical and insightful. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars now, this is my kind of doctor! 5 Dec 2005

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I never thought I'd find a cardiologist who agrees with me that prescription drugs are a last resort, but here he is. Believe it or not, he even understands enough about real life to tell you to get your chi in shape! If you want to know which supplements live up to their hype (and some of them do), this is the book you need.

IN A NUTSHELL: E-Z to grasp balanced approach

Written by a Cardiologist, this book is among the first to suggest that treating hypertension is not just about filling prescriptions and taking your medicine on time.

WHAT ITS ALL ABOUT: Using Prescribed Meds As A Last rather than a 1st Resort!

Most of all, "Lower Your Blood Pressure in Eight Weeks" is about using conventional prescription medicines as a last rather than a first resort.

So how do the Sinatras suggest doing this?

----- * DIETARY CHANGES, including the "Pan-Asian modified Mediterranean diet" plus certain amino acids [L-Arginine, L-Taurine, L-Carnitine], Co-enzyme Q10, flax, soy, fish oils, Hawthorn and much more. Comprehensive "Meal Plans" are included in the second half of the book.


Balanced approach to hypertension treatment which includes alternative medicine blended with conventional allopathic medicine. Best of all, this book is written by a Cardiologist [M.D.] and by a very qualified nurse [M.S.N., C.N.S., A.P.R.N.], who are a married couple.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable 28 May 2008
By Bill McLean - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Eight weeks ago I was diagnosed with isolated systolic hypertension (BP 160/64). I was already doing some of the book recommendations before I read it. Then I started on the full program right away. Now my resting BP is running 115/68 to 120/75 and my weight went from 160lbs to 150lbs. While I did NOT feel poorly eight weeks ago, I now feel unbelievably GREAT. I will be 70 years young in September 2008.

I think I should also report that my physician put me on ZOLOFT 100MG DAILY eight weeks ago. This reduced anxiety and depression and may have helped reduce my BP.
