One Heart, Five Habits
A Cardiologist's Guide to Lowering your Blood Pressure Through Healthy Lifestyle Practices /cSayeh Zielke With Naomi LewisBook - 2019
Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a major risk factor that can lead to dire consequences if not managed carefully. Backed by evidence-based research, One Heart, Five Habits answers some of the questions that Dr. Zielke is frequently asked by patients in her cardiology clinic, and presents five simple, important lifestyle practices to help lower blood pressure. As we grow older, blood pressure tends to increase and create strain on the heart and its arteries. Though older people do suffer from hypertension, it is not always a natural result of aging. Hypertension can affect adults of all ages, at times due to excess sodium in our diets, lack of physical activity, and other modifiable risk factors.
