Review quote

'Presented in an easy to digest, jargon-free format, the book provides up to date facts and professional advice on how simple changes to your lifestyle can improve your health.' Brechin Advertiser Lots of info and jargon free When my partner was diagnosed with high blood pressure, i had no idea what it meant, what caused it or what we could do to improve it. I chose this book because it was the most recent i could find and i wanted up to date information. And i'm glad i did. This book explains blood pressure and all the conditions associated with it, high and low, in simple, easy to understand terms. Lots of headings make it easy to read and find what i'm looking for and a glossary explains any medical terms - though this book avoids jargon and over technical terms. A great book for anyone who wants to find out more about blood pressure and how to improve high or low blood pressure, but without having to decipher lots of complex medical explanations.
