This group is for people who want to manage high blood pressure with proven lifestyle changes: the DASH diet (rich in fruit, vegetables, low fat dairy), exercise, and weight loss. The moderator, Marla Heller, MS, RD, is the author of the NY Times best-seller, The DASH Diet Action Plan, the book that gives you a fresh start on healthy eating.
People with hypertension, prehypertension, or metabolic syndrome will benefit from this group. The DASH diet was proven to lower blood pressure without medication in National Institutes of Health research studies ("Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension").
