Author Sherry A. Rogers, M.D., said the major class of antihypertensive drugs make the sick get sicker quicker. Half of the patients on high blood pressure drugs still can't control it, while the drugs make them feel worse. Lowering the blood pressure too much for those past 70 often results in dizziness, weakness, and brain fog.
Dr. Rogers shows the reader the exact type of blood test their doctor needs to order to get accurate mineral levels. Low potassium and magnesium levels may need to be corrected to normalize blood presssure. She recommends reputable sources for supplementation. She also lists labs and resources to enable readers to help themselves.
This 250 page book has many useful suggestions for multiple drug-free approaches to normalize cardiovascular conditions and other related health conditions. Dr. Rogers recommends eggs, cheese, kefir, and non-farmed fish and chicken. She refers to sugar and refined grain products as "serial killers".
