In my conversation with Dr. Kim Williams we discuss the multifactorial nature of hypertension, or chronically high blood pressure. There are several contributing factors, but diet plays a significant role in preventing and reversing high blood pressure. You can take control of your health and protect against hypertension (along with other chronic diseases) by eating a low sodium whole-food, plant-based diet, limiting alcohol, avoiding tobacco, and getting 45 minutes of exercise daily.
I hope you find this information helpful.
With hugs and love,
