An authoritative, upbeat, solution-oriented guide, High Blood Pressure pays heed to the mind-body connection; it describes how a spiritual program rooted in the Twelve Steps can help individuals deal more effectively with the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual challenges presented by hypertension. Along with the effects of medication, environment, diet, and exercise, this book covers alternative/complementary treatments, pregnancy-related hypertension, and hypertension in children.
